Insecure Tori Spelling defends her body & marriage with bikini photos

NBC Universal Summer Press Day
I know a lot of you like Tori Spelling and watch her show. Hell Kaiser even likes her. Some of you tell me I’m wrong when I call her to task for being an unapologetic homewrecker, although most of you agree that she’s insufferable. It’s just that there’s something so needy about her, and so annoying. In the latest issue of Life & Style, Tori appears in a bikini and gives quotes about how attentive her husband is that aren’t meant to sound like they’re straight from her. Poor Tori didn’t earn the cover, though, and is just a side piece to the main story about how Kendra and Hank are trying for another baby. It’s got to hurt to lose out to another reality star who is (allegedly) fighting the release of a sex tape she once tried to sell. Tori is showing that she’s not as skinny as she once was and has gained a whole 5-6 pounds. Sit your bony ass down, Tori, I can do that in a week without feeling particularly full:

toribikiniOn a family vacation at the Veranda resort in Turks and Caicos on May 16, Tori Spelling looked proud to strut her stuff in a sexy black bikini! The exclusive photos of Tori in the new issue of Life & Style—on newsstands now—show off Tori’s now healthier-looking physique. Gone was the skeletal frame, estimated at 93 pounds, that shocked the world just weeks ago. “Last summer, she didn’t want to be photographed in a bathing suit,” an insider close to Tori tells Life & Style. “Now she’s much happier with herself. She’s still very thin, but she’s not bony anymore.”

A second insider agrees: “She’s gained about 5 or 6 pounds. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but on someone as thin as Tori, it makes a world of difference.” What finally prompted her to put on the much-needed weight? Her career and family life are getting better every day, says the second insider, which makes Tori want to eat.

During the trip to Turks and Caicos, Dean worked overtime to show Tori how devoted he is to her. “Dean was great during the vacation,” the second insider says. “Things between them still aren’t perfect, but they’re getting better. It’s clear that Dean’s trying.” His most touching gesture? Making special arrangements for Tori’s favorite dessert — red velvet cake — to be brought to his wife on the beach in celebration of her 37th birthday on May 16.

Oh that’s so touching, Dean made sure Tori had red velvet cake on her birthday. I guess I can’t bash Tori too much for resorting to the same lame tactics as other reality stars like Kim Kardashian. Kim earns covers for losing 5 pounds, so Tori can earn a sidebar for gaining that same amount. It’s just kind of sad that she has to tout how healthy her marriage is and brag about how happy and healthy she is. It kind of points to serious problems, but when your career involves putting your life under a microscope you have to make due.

I don’t mean to get all philosophical, but reality show relationships suffer from the observer effect. (Which I had confused with the Heisenberg principle before I looked it up.) They significantly change as a result of how they’re scrutinized. Then again, it wouldn’t be as interesting if Tori and Dean got along as well as they try to portray. The fun is in watching them burn out. For now we’ll get to see Tori strip down and try and make everything sound great. Maybe if she kept her private life away from cameras and stuck to writing books and shilling jewelry on the Home Shopping Network things would work out better for her.

    Ugh she’s so disgusting.

  2. Chelly says:

    OK IM’A SAY IT….SHE’S F-U-G-L-Y!! & whoever wants to say “no she isn’t” “she’s cute” “she’s pretty” blah blah bullshit! UR THE 1 WHO’S IN DENIAL, just LIKE HER!

  3. Tess says:

    She’d look so much better if she’d just scrape off some of that make-up, or “muck-up”, as a little girl I know so perfectly named it!

  4. Sumodo1 says:

    Why do anorexics and bulemics brag about how happy and healthy they are? Who are they kidding? Not me.

  5. Lem says:

    who the hell eats cake on the beach?

  6. GatsbyGal says:

    She’s still WAY too skinny. OMG, she’s gained a whole pounds, stop the fucking presses. Please, I could gain or lose five pounds and not even know. I don’t own a scale. That she is so watchful of her weight that she notices five measly additional pounds just speaks to her unhealthy obsession with weight. She definitely has a problem.

  7. Jo says:

    I don’t see that marriage lasting. She got him by pretending to be really into sex with him blah blah now not so much. He constantly brings it up in a very crass way. She says she doesn’t want to do it cuz kids, he’s changed blah blah… so not true. He is the same.. douche he always was.. she is the one thats changed.

    “His most touching gesture? Making special arrangements for Tori’s favorite dessert — red velvet cake — to be brought to his wife on the beach in celebration of her 37th birthday on May 16.”

    wow, that IS touching! how difficult it must have been to pick up a phone or tell his assistant to put it together. and what’s the point of cake? you know she didn’t eat it.

  9. EB says:

    Tori is such a sad person! Look at her face! Can she even smile for real?! She clearly has an eating disorder and is ill. It’s really sad – pathetic, when you consider how she uses her family to promote this show.

  10. Constance says:

    yeehaw! She still looks like a horse.

  11. Lady Nightshade says:

    @original kate I was thinking the same thing! Maybe if HE baked the cake himself or something but ordering her a cake is what everyone does when it’s someone’s birthday

  12. lucy2 says:

    Though I don’t like how she and her husband dumped their spouses for each other, I feel sorry for her at the moment. She seems very unhappy and is trying too hard to convince everyone that everything is great. She has looked very unhealthy for a while, hopefully this small improvement continues.

  13. Majosha says:

    His beady little eyes creep me out.

  14. ogechi says:

    I think she is having problems in her marriage. She is a nice humble woman. I pray that God in His infinite mercies help her in any problem she is facing at the moment.

  15. Mary Okorn-Jimenez says:

    He will do to her the same thing he did to his first wife and TWO children.

    What a fucking douche.

    And I love you, Tori, I do – but you’re an asshole for cheating on your husband with a married man and then marrying said douchebag – and having his children!

    Talk about being fucked now.

  16. Hautie says:

    I still think Tori had a Mother that was not exactly warm and caring. And spent the better part of Tori’s life telling her she was not pretty or good enough. Nor has Tori ever tried to sell herself as a great beauty.

    I just can’t hate on a girl that figured out how to make a living in LA. That did require her having a sex tape and ending up naked in Playboy.

    Plus Tori never has come off to me as being a nasty piece of work like so many of the other children of the very wealthy of LA. If she can make a living with her books, show and kids clothes. More power to her.

  17. anon says:

    His eyes are so close together he looks like a flounder.

  18. Cinderella says:

    I figured that Tori and her mom would rebuild a relationship as soon as her marriage started failing. I always thought Candy had Dean pegged because she understands how gold-digging works.

    Tori needs to eat before Liam has to carry her around.

  19. Lynn says:

    She is no longer skeletal looking because she gained 5 or 6 pounds? Oh, I forgot! In Hollywood, 5 pounds in the equivalent of 30 pounds in the rest of the world!

  20. kia says:

    GatsbyGal-

    Really? You wouldn’t notice if you gained 5lbs? I also do not own a scale but I can tell if I gain that much weight because my clothes will fit differently. But then again I am quite short and it’s easier to tell if you’re short since the weight can’t really spread out like it does on someone tall.

    But yeah I think Tori definitely has food issues. And I can’t feel bad for her, especially if her jerk husband is the root cause because it’s karma, baby. She’s reaping what she sowed by stealing another woman’s husband, shocker that it’s not bringing her any happiness…lol.

  21. Kitten says:

    I agree with what many have said about the 5 lbs. It totally depends on your frame. If I gained 5 lbs I wouldn’t fit in my jeans. Maybe that means that shizz is too tight i don’t know. Anyway, I kinda like Tori, I’m not sure why….

  22. Maritza says:

    @Ogechi, Amen to that!

  23. SixxKitty says:

    I recall back in 90210 days when the new season started and I swear she was struggling to hold up the weight of her mini-skirt.
    Tori has always been thin, like almost sick thin, I think she looks so much better in that black bi-ki shot though. But lets face it, to have gone from everything to nothing, well, but Candy, we’d all be twiggy thin!!

  24. lway says:

    I don’t like her one bit – but i have to give it to her. She looks fab in her bikini!

    Now, let’s work on that personality Tori …….

  25. jenny says:

    that woman is sooooooooooo ugly. urghhh

  26. Slymm27 says:

    Good Lord, she is ugly. What would she løok like if she was just another woman on the streets?

  27. sophie says:

    god, she has such a horrible nose. it’s a nose job gone bad, for sure. she is just so ugly now, like heidi montag. ugh.
