Publisher's Summary

Stori Telling is a chance for Tori to set the record straight on her personal life and to let listeners experience the truly unique life she's led - with its undeniable childhood privileges, tabloid misperceptions, career successes, and personal regrets. This is Tori's opportunity to define herself on her own terms.

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.

Fantastic!

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!

Entertaining!

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!

I have 3 books by her, all pretty much the same!

I love her books and love her story telling, but after 3 books I feel they mostly have the same information. If she had an updated one I would probably buy it but I am done with the old ones back to back. Sorry she has such a narcisistic mother. How horrible that would be. Money doesn't impress me and I was raised with it too just not Spelling money, who would tell their daughter she would be pretty if she had a nose job at 14 or any age. No wonder she is sick so much! Let it go Tori and move on you have a wonderful life, kids and husband.
Life is short and she isn't worth it! Notice she doesn't have any books on here. Get over yourself mom!

Good to get a peek in her world.

It was good to get to know her world but was a bit uncomfortable learning about her relationship with her mother or lack of. Not sure her Mothers affair was hers to tell as she would say to Deans story to tell.

Enjoyed it!

I can relate to her being a mom even though I was not born with all the luxuries that Tori was, okay any luxuries lol. She is still human and relatable. I enjoyed it! Thanks!

Tori got me (somewhat) hooked

Would you listen to Stori Telling again? Why?

Yes, I would listen again. It's actually an interesting story and Tori Spelling isn't a horrible narrator. She gets a little dramatic a few times, but nothing over the top.

What other book might you compare Stori Telling to and why?

Anything written and narrated by Tori Spelling probably...do I really have to list why that would be?

Which scene was your favorite?

I don't have a favorite scene....I guess the most interesting part to me is her telling of her childhood. It is told over several chapters and recounts her relationship with her mother and late-father. It's interesting, I suppose, because it offers the point of view from someone who grew up with the money to have anything in the world and all she wanted was simplicity. That's interesting to me.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

She could afford anything in the world, but all she wanted was love.

Any additional comments?

This book was good. I've listened to it multiple times. It's not my favorite but it's a good listen. It's interesting to see how trivial money is to a child who just wants to be loved. It also reinforces the old adage that money isn't everything.

Stori Telling

If you could sum up Stori Telling in three words, what would they be?

Naive, oblivious, sheltered

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Predictable

What about Tori Spelling’s performance did you like?

Well read

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Sucker

Any additional comments?

Tori’s innocence and inability to live in the real world are both refreshing and sad. I hope that she continues to be strong for her children and learns to stand on her own two feet.

Terrific Tori

I only knew of Tori Spelling according to what was presented to us in the media. I admit, because of that, I had a certain perception of her.

I'm glad to have listened to this book, to hear Tori reveal the truth about her life in her own words. I appreciated her honesty, bravery & sense of humour.
