Whereas her VH1 show So Notorious was brilliant, self-effacing satire, her memoir directly showcases the tabloid lies and scrutiny, her family and childhood (including a tour through the infamous Spelling mansion), her marriages, her scandalous divorce, her experiences as a new mom, and the empowering humor that stems from a private life made public caricature.
Few actresses have a personal story that's more unique and full of twists and drama than their roles. Tori's bestselling tell-all memoir is a juicy, eye-opening volume every bit as enthralling and addictive as one of her father's smash series.

I wasn't necessarily a fan of Tori Spelling before I read this, but was hoping on some 90210 secrets being spilled so I picked it up.
Boy was I surprised!! I absolutely loved this book... I have now become a true fan of Tori Spelling. I think she is very misunderstood and extremely funny! It's great to hear her own voice reading. I'm on to MOMMYWOOD now. I can't wait!
Wow, she is really good at reading her book in such an entertaining way. She should read other people's books for them too. Have plenty of time on your hands when you start listening, you wont be able to stop! Just downloaded her next book Mommywood and can't wait to listen to it too. Fun, interesting and entertaining, you will love it. You'll be sad when it over, you will want more!
Nope. It was entertaining and narrated very well.
Tori. She is very like able.
I listened to all 3. This was the best one.
Definitely tv series.
Iistened to all 3. This was my favorite. She is very sweet and honest. Her natration was perfect.
funny, engaging, and entertaining
As the narrator, it felt more like you two were sitting on a cozy couch having a conversation or engaging in
I read/listened to this book in one sitting...Tori Spelling was actually a great narrator.
I never watched 90210, I started following Tori after seeing her reality show on Oxygen. I was pregnant the first time I saw the show and I really connected with how down to earth Tori and Dean were. They really are just regular people. Stori Telling gives an inside look into Tori's life. She shares a problem that a lot of daughters have, which is a mother's jelousy of a father's love for his daughter. Many people know the saying "Daddy's little girl", but it takes a very insecure woman to be jelous of your own child. However, Tori's struggle to be "normal" and her quest for her mother's love and approval is what made her into the strong, independent woman she is today. The inside look into her life was wonderful. The fact that Tori read the book herself was even better because you could feel every emotion she was feeling as she spoke. She was completely honest and real, even about things she wasn't proud of. If I wasn't already such a big fan, this book would complete the Tori Spelling fan club membership.
Great Book - listened to this whilst do the housecleaning etc - just unreal. I watch the show and she is just so down to earth considering her upbringing. Currently downloading her next one. a must
I am not a big fan of celebrity "Hollywood" authors. For some reason I was curious about her story. Once I started listening on my iPod I simply couldn't wait for what she was going to say next. The clarity and truth from her perspective was easily relatable for me. We share some common experiences so I worked hard not to judge and simply listen. I laughed hard, felt genuine sadness, and exhillerating joy throughout the book. I also found myself disappointed. Not at the writing, but some of the content-that's my own issue. Overall, it was better than I could have hoped for and well worth the 5 straight hours I spent through listening to it. I appreciate Tori telling her story her way. I think I take a listen at her next book as well.
If one could see my Audible.com library, one would never believe I would purchase Stori Telling. But I really like her. I think she's a sweet woman, and a good person, who loves her family. And, I think she did a good job giving the good with the bad.
This was fun to listen to.
