Author: Tori Spelling, Hilary Liftin
She was television's most famous virgin--and, as Aaron Spelling's daughter, arguably its most famous case of nepotism. Portraying Donna Martin on Beverly Hills, 90210, Tori Spelling became one of the most recognizable young actresses of her generation, with a not-so-private personal life every bit as fascinating as her character's exploits.

Better than what I anticipated. I enjoy watching her and Dean's series, and think her to be forthright, and down to earth. Yes, she has had a rich girl's life, but as an adult she appears to have worked hard for her success. She made choices that I wouldn't necessarily condone, or act upon, but hopefully she and Dean are really the rare "love at first sight" couple that truly belongs together. In the book, Tori admits her mistakes, but doesn't dwell on them. A large part of the book is devoted to describing the tumultuousness relationship with her mother. I found the book to be interesting, and definitely a page turner.

I was a closet Beverly Hills, 90210 fan, so I was curious what Tori Spelling had to say in this tell all book. The 'poor-rich-girl-who-just-wanted-a-normal-childhood' angle wasn't at all surprising and the writing needed some work, but I thought it was a fun, entertaining read overall. Any fan -admittedly or not- will surely get a kick out of this book. What did Tori have to say? Nothing too deep. As much as it pains me to admit it, I liked this book and have newfound sympathy for the bad press she received. I'm glad she finally found true love with Dean McDermott, especially after reading about her past experiences with bad boyfriends. Yes, it's terrible that people got hurt as a result of that union, but that's life for you. I haven't yet seen the independent films, 'Trick' and 'House of Yes,' but I did enjoy 'Tori & Dean: Inn Love' on Oxygen, and thought 'So NoTORIous' on VH1, in which Tori -horseface- played a parody of herself and her life, was pretty funny! She has a great sense of humor.

I love this book! More power to Tori and Dean and thier beautiful children. Tori is a wonderful story teller and really does make you laugh at her life, with her! I watched Tori & Dean, Home Sweet Hollywood tonight and I only felt more stongly about her. She mentioned that her mother hasn't spoken to her since the book was released. You know what, that may be for the best. Read it!

Tori Spelling is a fantastic story teller! She is funny and honest and entertaining. I couldn't put this book down until I had read the last page! And how interesting to read about the whole Shannen Doherty drama. Even though she has led an often pampered lifestyle, Tori explains that money doesn't prepare you for the real world and real life issues with family and relationships. We are all flawed and messy and fantastic all at the same time. I was happy that she ended her story on such a high note. I just love happy endings : )

Tori Spelling is at best a B-list celebrity, but as a writer, she's the pits. I hope that she was able to clear up her financial woes with this book, because no one will be paying for another! There was a little bit of new information about her life in the book, but she glossed over a lot of the things that I was most interested in. A good PBS swap, but not worth cover price!

I love Tori Spelling and this book gives you a look inside her life before she married Dean. I must say this book made me strongly dislike her mother Candy. Although it is nearly 300pgs it only took a fea hours to read. Must read for any Tori fan!

This book was not what I expected but in a good way! I thought it was going to be a story of "Poor me, my dad was rich and I didn't get taken care of when he died." I basically thought it was going to be a pity party book. Surprisingly it wasn't. Tori Spelling is quite candid about her relationship with her parents and her life thus far even sharing the fact that when she met her current husband both were married to other people.
Definitely a chick lit. book but a light and entertaining way to see the life of this celeb.
