Like most parents, Tori wants her children to have the one thing she didn't have as a kid -- a normal family. On their hit Oxygen reality show, Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, the starlet and her husband Dean McDermott regularly wrestle dirty diapers, host the neighborhood block party, and tackle temper tantrums on the red carpet. But when the cameras aren't rolling, Tori's still having awkward run-ins with a former 90210 costar at a laser tag birthday party, scooping rogue poo out of the kiddie pool on a resort vacation, and racing to win back her pre-baby body before the media starts calling her fat. For all her suburban fantasies, Tori Spelling is no June Cleaver.
With the same down-to-earth wit that made her entertaining memoir sTORI telling a #1 New York Times bestseller, Tori tells the hilarious and humbling stories of life as a mom in the limelight. From learning to be the kind of parent her own mother never was to revealing what it's like to raise a family while everyone is watching, Mommywood is an irresistible snapshot of celebrity parenthood that you won't get from the paparazzi.
Mommywood was one of the books I chose to read during the Readathon, because it was a short book, plus I knew it would be entertaining. I was correct in both fronts. Books like this make me feel like I'm peering through the window of the rich and famous.
Mommywood is the look into what it is like raising kids in front of the limelight. Tori Spelling grew up in front of the camera , I was a huge fan of 90210, and I watch Tori and Dean, so naturally I find her life very interesting. Tori Spelling is quite funny, many of the stories she tell put a smile on your face. There are also some seriousness. For instance, she talks a little about what it's like being a stepmom to her stepson Jack. I am a stepmom and I could relate to her on that aspect.
If you watch Tori and Dean then you know that Tori is one hell of a party planner. She gives a behind the scenes of the parties she through for her son Liam. There were definitely some laugh at loud moments reading about that.
If you like Tori Spelling or her show Tori and Dean, than you will surely like Mommywood. It is a quick, enjoyable read, plus I have a crush on Dean. LOL!
This is my own gently used copy.
