In the last year there have been confused and uncontrolled rumors about Tori Spelling‘s dramatic weight loss. In her new book, TerriTORI, she reveals why she shed so much weight. The mom of two admits she feels worried “every single day” about how the coverage will affect her daughter Stella, 2.
I’m so grateful that she can’t read yet,” Spelling says. “I’m hoping they’ll let up on that by the time she gets old enough to understand, but I’m going to have to explain to her that this is what happens.”
Spelling, 37, blames a number of factors for the dramatic weight loss: Swine flu, stomach pain, migraines and nerve problems. She told USA Today, “I’ve never had a great stomach, but (being ill) just completely tore up my stomach and broke down my immune system, and I’ve basically been a mess ever since, stomach-wise. It’s about rebuilding my immune system.”
As the rumors became heated, Spelling, star of a reality TV show with her husband Dean McDermott , Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, felt it necessary to go on record with a statement on Twitter announcing her weight to be 107 lbs. She said, “I’m a role model for a lot of women out there, so I hate that they say these things unwarranted, without any research and facts. I think it’s doing a disservice to women out there that look up to any celebrity.”
Spelling recently renewed her marriage vows. She shared her thoughts with US Weekly about the turbulent relationship they shared in the last year and said,
We had problems that we never thought we would have. We thought we had the perfect relationship. We realised we love each other, but the communication had completely broken down and a lot of our issues, honestly, came from parenting.
In addition she talked of her mother, Candy, from whom she used to be estranged. “We do talk on the phone. We do e-mail. We see each other for dinners. We do the normal stuff I think families do. There’s no strain. We’re still building our relationship, of course, but she’s great with the kids [Stella and Liam, 3]. She’s completely involved, which is all I ever wanted. We’re just moving forward.”
