Tori Spelling is scary skinny, paranoid and afraid Dean will leave her


Dear God, why? So, Tori Spelling is all over the tabloids this week, probably promoting the new season of Tori & Dean or whatever. She and Dean sat down for an Us Weekly interview to help draw attention to whatever bullsh-t relationship drama they created in order to sell their show. And you know I usually don’t mind Tori, but she’s grating on my nerves big time today:

[Tori]… insists it’s all par for the course. “There are good days and bad days with everything,” she explains. “I’m happy fans will see we have ups and downs like everyone else.” But the two remain each other’s favorite costars.

“If I were on another series or Dean was, we’d be gone 17 hours a day,” Spelling says.

“We get to be together.” Echoes McDermott, “It’s a lot of fun, and we get to spend time together.”

And the duo love to be close, lazing around on mornings with 22-month-old daughter Stella and on Liam, 3.

“We feel like everything family-wise revolves around the bed,” Spelling says. “We call it cozy time.” Even more fun: Both kids have distinct personalities. “Liam’s mellow,” Spelling says. As for the more outgoing Stella? “She’s into fashion,” Spelling reveals. “She obsessed with shoes, and starting to pick out her own outfits!”

Meanwhile, Spelling and her mom, Candy, have put their long-standing feud – which peaked after Aaron Spellings’s 2006 death – to rest.

“She’s a very doting grandmother,” Spelling gushes. It’s great for us, it’s great for her. Everyone wins.”

Eh. Do I believe that they’re probably pretty happy together? Kind of. I always say this when I’m talking about Tori and Dean, but I’ll just say this sh-t again – they’re not very good actors, and when I watch Tori & Dean, I think they genuinely love each other. Whatever.

Star Magazine does not have an interview with Tori or Dean, so instead they’re running yet another “Tori is scary skinny” piece. It’s basically a series of comments from “eyewitnesses” who recently saw Tori on a red carpet, but some of the insults lodged at Tori are slightly funny just for the sheer meanness:

At the How to Train Your Dragon premiere, one mom stood out.

“There was a woman holding a young child in front of me, and she looked absolutely emaciated,” says an eyewitness. “She was wearing a backless dress, and you could plainly see her chicken-wing shoulder blades and the outline of all her ribs sticking out against her skin. I thought, ‘This poor woman. She must be ill.’ Then she turned around and it was Tori Spelling! Her eyes seemed to be sunken into her head, and I gasped at her sickly appearance.”

An insider tells Star: “Lots of Tori’s friends have always secretly believed that Dean only married her for the fame and career opportunities. And now Tori may have some doubts herself about his commitment to their relationship – and the strains has been taking a huge toll on her eating habits and physique.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

Blah, blah, blah, there’s more stuff about the new season of Tori & Dean that reads like a promotion. But Star also notes that Dean has been spending $5000 a week on motorcycle stuff, and that Tori has been “constantly pleading” with Dean to cut back. Oh, and Tori is paranoid about Dean leaving her, and she’s always checking his cell phone and e-mails. All of which makes her more neurotic, and makes her lose more weight. Vicious cycle. My thoughts on Tori’s weight is actually a lot like what I think of Angelina Jolie’s weight loss – I think some women’s bodies just go haywire after they give birth, and their metabolism gets f-cked up, and it becomes difficult for them to keep weight on. Granted, both women probably do need to eat more and eat healthier, but I’d be willing to bet that Tori isn’t starving herself or anything.

    Those arms: eek!!

    Funny how all these rumors came about when the show is about to premiere. Just like the feud with her mother came about when her show was starting and her mother was trying to sell her book. Funny, funny indeed…

    I know Tori is naturally thin, but she never looked like this. I really don’t see how you get to that point without some sort of eating disorder. Whatever’s going on with her, it’s up to her to deal with it, and I hope she does because those two cute kids need her.

  3. Jillian says:

    I think both Tori and Angelina starve themselves. All the women I know who’ve had babies have the opposite problem- they can’t keep the pounds from creeping on.

    I like Tori. I watched an old episode of their show the other day and I think it’s scripted. They were having a big fight and it seemed so fake.

  4. Carrie says:

    She looks very, very thin…however, she has always (since the 90210 days, at least) been very thin. I do think that for her health, she should put on a few pounds, but she did have two children so her body is healthy enough to sustain life- like Angelina, Nicole Richie, and many other very thin celebs who are also mothers.
    As for their relationship, I do think that they are pretty solid. I think that Dean gets too obsessed with whatever is the current hobby (a few seasons ago he was all about scuba diving, now it’s motorcycle racing) and spends too much time on it, and leaves too much of the child rearing and responsibility on Tori, so that may explain the weight loss…

  5. Maddie says:

    Are we suppose to feel sorry for her? I don’t, this is what happens when you marry your affair partner.

    As for her being neurotic, I guess she remembers all the sneaking phone calls between her and Dean when they were both married to other people and fooling around with each other.

    I’m sure that they or she does like working with him everyday for 17 hrs, that means she knows where he is, and not banging some co-worker on a TV set.

    She does stand to lose some money if their marriage ends, she is a household name, thanks to daddy and he, Dean is a character actor that will more than likely fade into the background if they divorce.

  6. searching4grace says:

    Completely off subject, but when i saw the picture of Wladimir and Hayden my first thought was “who’s out running around in the sunshine with their kid?” LOL what a freaky height difference!

  7. christina says:

    I love 90210 reruns on the Soap Network.

  8. H says:

    I wish my metabolism would have F’d up like that then because I’m still trying to lose 30 of the 40lbs I gained with my second and she’s 15 months now. I worry I may never see my old body again.

  9. bellaluna says:

    Tori’s much thinner now than she was when she got pregnant so, while she may have been able to “sustain life” before, I doubt she could now. These ultra-thin women need to stop being so conscientious about how they look and more conscientious about how long they’ll be around to take care of their children. Personally, I’d rather see my children graduate from college, get married, and be around to play with my grandchildren than fit into a size 0.

    Tori and Dean’s relationship, well, that’s debatable. I’ve heard that friends of his have said he married her for money and/or fame, but I agree that neither one of them are very good actors. In fact, Tori is painful to watch.

  10. Scarlet Vixen says:

    @Jillian: I had my first baby at 28, and couldn’t lose all the weight the first 14mos or so after I had him. But, after I stopped nursing my body not only dropped that last 10lbs it was holding onto I lost an additional 15. So, some people lost more weight after having a baby-maybe it’s all the running around, and eating healthier (you eat what your kids eat).

    But she’s totally unhealthy skinny. When are Hollywood women going to realize that once you get a little older you need a little more weight on your body to fill out the wrinkles and lost of elasticity? Being super skinny makes women like Teri Hatcher and Madonna (and now Tori Spelling) look OLDER not younger.

  11. tsarina says:

    I hope he does leave her, for another woman. That would be karma and she deserves it 100%. I feel zero pity, sympathy or sadness for her, she made her bed and now she can lie in it. What goes around comes around, Tori.

    I watched that craptacular show and I do not see how they supposedly love each other. It looks fake, and painfully staged IMO. And, it could just be me, but their son doesn’t seem to know his dad much, or be all that interested in him…must be since Dean is out racing motorcycles instead of parenting. I feel SO BAD for that little girl, she’s got her father’s beady, too close set eyes, but I never expected her to be a looker, what with a reptile for a father and a horse for a mother. Yes I am a b*tch for bashing a kid’s looks, and I don’t care.

  12. Chelly says:

    Y is it so hard for celebrities to let their kids actually *gasp* walk???

  13. gg says:

    I don’t know why but I’m surprised the kids got his beady little eyes instead of her huge googely ones. Seems like the googely gene would be stronger than the beady gene.

  14. Sumodo1 says:

    Those kids are beautiful and look well-cared-for. That’s all that matters. Tori could lose that $5000 a week habit by dumping Dean. His motorcycle racing fetish is killing her.

  15. Jillian says:

    I forgot to add that I think it’s obvious that the nanny Patsy did all the childcare for Liam and Stella. Tori acted clueless around them and was always asking Patsy what they needed. She had to ask if Stella could have a speghetti noodle.

  16. Praise St. Angie! says:

    “Seems like the googely gene would be stronger than the beady gene.”

    lol…you’d think, wouldn’t you?

  17. Neelyo says:

    “If I were on another series or Dean was, we’d be gone 17 hours a day,” Spelling says.

    That’s hilarious. Who’d want these talent-free famewhores to do any real acting? They can’t even give a convincing line reading on their reality show.

  18. Maddie says:

    If he is gone as much as she claims she should be worried about those groupies that hang around at all sporting events.

  19. cayenne says:

    I think it’s cocaine. The paranoia, the weight, the rumors.

  20. clare says:

    I wish she’d get her boobs fixed.

  21. fizXgirl314 says:

    jeez, why is everything crooked on her? she looks like she’s made of two different humans…

  22. dre says:

    Yes, they cheated. So, ummm, apparently they werent happy in the marriages they had. So should they stay in a marriage for the next 60 years that makes them unhappy? No they shouldnt and you wouldnt either. I am so sick of hearing sh*t talk on them. It was ok for all the BRANGELINA freaks, but for Tori and Dean its not. Make up your mind people…either it ok to be happy or its not. Either stay in a crap marriage or dont. I agree with Tori, I would walk out! And not look back.
    I have one life and Im gonna be with someone who makes me happy.

  23. EMV says:

    There is a really enlightening article in this month’s Vogue about a model and eating disorders. It was really good and interesting to hear her point of view and how she has struggled with wieght in the industry.

  24. fizXgirl314 says:

    just because you’re not “happy” with something doesn’t mean you need to treat that person like crap. If you’re not satisfied with something, you can walk out and try to leave that person with at least a shred of dignity… Unless their significant others were abusing them, I don’t see any reason to condone cheating. It’s very hurtful and demoralizing to a human being. Have some effing humanity and walk out before you resort to cheating. Even though cheating happens all the time, I just don’t condone it for anyone. It’s one of the most hurtful things you can do to someone because it is such a personal and painful experience…

  25. DrM says:

    Kaiser I have to disagree with you here. I’ve had four kids and my metabolism never went “haywire’ to the point where I looked emaciated. I”ve never had any friends, acquaintances, co-workers, distant relatives, or neighbors (so no-one at all :) ) have their ‘haywire’ metabolism cause emaciation after childbirth. Tori Spelling doesn’t eat and she may also exercise a hell of a lot in order to look like that. I would argue that it is pretty obvious it involves food restriction of a fairly extreme kind. I do know plenty of women who exercise a lot, one a tri-athelete, and they eat normally and do not look like Tori Spelling either.

    I feel sorry for her this is NOT a good look.

  26. punkitten says:

    @ Jillian and Dr M: Every woman’s body reacts to pregnancy and nursing differently. I have friends and family who struggled to lose the weight while at least five others, myself included, quickly lost the weight and then some. I personally gained almost thirty pounds throughout my pregnancy and I was back to my original weight within three months of giving birth. My child is now ten months old and I have lost a total of forty-eight pounds at this time and the weight keeps coming off. I take walks with the baby and dog, occasionally play on my Wii fit (not a real workout), and do some yoga. I have a job that is physically active but I only work about fourteen hours a week. It is true that I have pretty good eating habits just because I tend to love good whole foods. I have always eaten like a bird, preferring several small meals rather than eating large amounts at a time. However, since I have been nursing I have started to eat like a horse! For the first time I am done with my meal before my spouse and I have had twice the amount that once would have filled me. Because I am nursing and I want to have a healthy supply of milk for my little one I listen to my body and do not restrict my diet at all at this time. I am not obsessed with fitting into a certain size because my baby is the central focus of my life right now. I didn’t even have the number of pounds lost until I wrote this note because it is not that important to me right now. As women we have to be careful of judging other women based on our own experiences. I do not assume that my friends who are not losing weight are lazy or have poor eating habits. I just realize that their body responded to the crazy physical journey that is pregnancy and motherhood differently than me. We all respond to stress, love, food, medicines and everything else in our own individual ways. It just breaks my heart when women judge each other so harshly instead of standing by one another in support.

  27. dre says:

    fizXgirl314 – Im sorry, but you dont know them personally, so all you are doing is going by rag mag gossip. You dont know what happened inside these marriages. I am sure there are two stories. They made mistakes…we are human.

  28. Erin says:

    Kaiser, not sure why you feel she wouldn’t be starving herself. I absolutely think she would. I cannot imagine anyone’s metabolism changing to that point, either.

  29. nj says:

    Body gone haywire, my ass.

    She’s 37-38 years old, not 24.
    I realize there’s always a medical anomaly here and there, but I notice there is a large percentage of veeerrrry thin post baby celebrities and in real life, every mid-thirties new-mom I know is running her ass off to lose weight. What’s the difference?
    Easily obtainable Adderall prescriptions and cocaine.
    I’m sorry, but if you are that emaciated and still have the strength to carry around a toddler, SOMETHING is keeping you going.
    And don’t give me that stress nonsense. Everyone I (and all of us) know has stress of every kind- marriage falling apart stress, parents with cancer stress, no money stress, post partum stress, etc. No amount of stress causes you to turn into a walking skeleton.
    And I don’t feel that I am being judgmental or hateful. We read about this Adderall wonderdrug but NOOOOO-ONE takes it. Its all just eating right and exercise, good genes and running after my kids. YEAH, RIGHT.

  30. sara says:

    I gotta say, having recovered from an eating disorder myself, Tori looks to be anorexic. Baby or not, one’s body does not become that emaciated without a severe calorie deficit. Your body will fight you every step of the way, trying to hold on to every calorie you allow to pass by your lips. Nobody accidentally becomes that skinny. That being said, it’s possible she has some kind of medical condition (not post-partum haywire metabolism) in which case she needs to see a doctor and be treated asap.

    Whatever’s going on, I hope she takes care of it, for the sake of her babies. I’ve only watched her show a few times, but she seems like a genuinely sweet woman.

  31. Kim says:

    Both Tori and Angelina and many other Hollywood celebs starve themselves. This isnt an after baby metabolism change.

  32. j. ferber says:

    Of course she’s starving herself!

  33. Sina says:

    Seriously people I totally agree with punkitten. I have a 4 month old baby and have absolutely gone back to my pre-pregnancy weight.
    I gained 25kg (55 pounds) during my pregnancy. I have not starved myself, I also take protein shakes when I don’t have time to cook or sit down for a meal because I am breastfeeding.
    I have always been skinny all my life and hate it. But my husband loves it!
    He says thats why he married an asian because they stay skinny before pregnancy n after pregnancy and during old age lol.
    Anyways my metabolism totally slowed down during pregnancy and I had a massive appetite. After every meal I would just knock out and hibernate until my next meal lol.
    Whereas after pregnancy I was breastfeeding more than I could eat and I also lost my appetie. But thankfully whatever I had stacked on during pregnancy was being burned off with breastfeeding cos I would sweat so much.
    Anyways I’ve noticed that ppl who start off skinny naturally go back to there pre pregnancy skinny weight. Where as ppl who start off a bit chunky cant go back to their pre chunky weight they normally add on more chunk. If you no what I mean. But generally anyways…

  34. Sara says:

    @Chelly – I would assume that they don’t let their kids walk because there a zillion paparazzi running and driving around them. If the kid got loose,the child could be trampled or run over.


    It’s easier to pose for photos with a child when it’s near your face rather than at your knees.

  35. Kim2 says:

    I watch the show I don’t believe Tori is anorexic she eats too much junk food,ice cream , cheese burgers etc . The Anorexics that I know avoid high caloric food at all cost

  36. Tru says:

    I think she is anorexic and bulimic for the shows tapings..its the only thing she can control…she just seems too damn needy, WHY pick a cheater or be a cheater???

    its known if he cheats on his wife with you, he’ll cheat on you with his new girl..SOME folks do not know their lane, she is gonna go crazy worried about keeping him on a leash..

    and to the contrary, I like Dean in Lifetime movies–poor guy can’t even take a role on lifetime, cause she’s too needy and her self esteem must be in the tank..

    does she NOT eat so she’ll get designer clothes for free? I doubt it, she needs therapy..and yes, I blame Candi and her dad..weird family

    what ever happened to her brother?? is he in some drug den somewhere??? just wondering..

    I like her but her choices are bad ones, if she and I were friends, I would be exhausted..there is always an issue.

  37. buzzaroo says:

    Sina – If my husband admitted to me that he married me because I was more likely NOT to get fat during pregnancy and old age he wouldn’t be my husband.

    In fact, if he said that to me after I’d had my baby last year I can assure you I would have thought there were more serious and substantial problems in our relationship because when things like that are being said, chances are there’s really another issue not being talked about.

    As for Tori and Dean, I don’t know why, but I irrationally like them and their kids are so beautiful! Not sure if I am buying the whole ‘Candy and Tori are best friends now’ thing though.

  38. canadianchick says:

    Maybe its blow-she filmed a flick in my hometown. I know people who saw her score coke. Old habits die hard in an industry that prizes stick figures.

  39. ViktoryGin says:

    @buzzaroo, co-sign


    Typical. So…you allow yourself to be played potentially as a fetish? Okay, best to stop here before I say something that get’s me banned from the forum. SMDH.

  40. VAne says:

    hasn’t she always been that skinny though??

  41. mojoman says:

    @fizxgirl314: LOL!! the best laugh I had all day. that’s exactly what I thought every time I see her pic, it’s like gravity doesnt agree with this chick. Not to be mean but her nose, her boobs, her eyes are so distorted I started feeling sorry for her

  42. Sara says:

    Some women are so very stupid as the one that said her husband married her because she would stay thin after giving birth. So did you marry him for citizenship? He married you for freakiness and knows that you will stay because it is better than living the way you were. You should marry for love not what someones ethnicity is. Roll over and put your foot in your mouth idiot.

  43. The post about motorcycles has a good content. I found this on Bing search and I really have fun reading this.

  44. I am not sure where you are getting your info, but great topic. I needs to spend some time learning much more or understanding more. Thanks for magnificent information I was looking for this information for my mission.
