Tori Spelling Responds To Weight Rumors And Family Drama
"At the end of the day I have two kids, a husband, that's my priority," Spelling said. "I have a lot of businesses to run. I don't have time to deal with whether they think I'm at the perfect weight or what they think I should weigh, but I want to be healthy for my children. When they start writing stories and criticizing you it starts to hurt because there are children involved. I think, my little Stella, she's a baby now but imagine if she were 15 and going through the body self-image thing and turning into a woman and she had to read this about her mother. I want to be a positive role model for her so it's a difficult thing to deal with."
When that time comes, Spelling will be able to impart her years of dealing with the spotlight on her children. I've always gotten it. I remember in my 20s there were always stories, 'She's too thin.' I've always weighed the same, since I was 16. This is my weight. I'm not unhealthy. I'm very healthy. It is hard to be criticized in the public and it's harder for your family to deal with, I think. You kind of get a thick skin but when you have kids and a husband it's upsetting."
Followers of the Spelling tribe are also interested in the possible reconciliation of Tori and mother Candy. That, Tori hopes, won't make magazine covers. "I'm really happy with the place I'm in, in my life right now. My biggest concern is that I don't want it to be played out as public as it has been made. If there is a future, and when she said she wants to see the children, I'm totally open to that but it needs to be private because I'm a mom and I need to protect them. If she wants to see them it needs to be a private outreach to me. If she reached out to me that would not be part of the show."
Listen to Tori Spelling Q & A
This summer, Spelling's reality show Tori and Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood returns. In the fall, she hopes to return again to the new 90210. "I would love to. I hope that the fans would want Donna back. It's been great so far. Ideally it would be awesome if David moved back to Beverly Hills and we could have Ruby, our baby and I could be a designer."
Right now Brian Austin Green is still fighting robots in the future on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles but with that show's fate on the fence, perhaps he'd return to his old stomping grounds too. "I have no idea. I haven't talked to him since the show ended. Our paths never crossed. But I think it would be great for the fans."
