Summary:

With the same down-to-earth wit that made her entertaining memoir ?sTORI Telling a #1 New York Times bestseller, Tori Spelling tells the hilarious and humbling stories of her life as a mom in the limelight.

Tori Spelling might have grown up with everything a girl could wish for, but these days, she's just another suburban working mom...whose toddler regularly recognizes her in the pages of Us Weekly. Welcome to Mommywood, where the stars are two feet tall and your neighbors know who you are before you move in.

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.

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.

    I had no idea. I mean we commoners really dont know what a "hollywood" life is like. we see if from the media's point of view (outside looking in), through the media. I thought it was interesting about her relationship with her kids being so different from her husbands, being that he has had kids before. But really, I have a personal issue with people who are constantly in the "whoa is me" situation. dont you think that if a person constantly changes situations but is always in "whoa is me" that maybe, just maybe, it is them? Who am I to judge, since I havent met her to know her, and life just sucks for some people, and she does have some really down to earth truths like folding up a baby stroller... but hmmm.
