Beverly Hills, 90210 alum Tori Spelling announces the launch of documenTORI, a new series that premieres Monday at ToriSpelling.com. The mother-of-four documents her most intimate family moments including footage from the day Finn was born, Hattie’s first steps, and much more.
“I grew up in Hollywood,” Tori writes. “My every move was documented. My family was watched through a lens with a filter that was tweaked to how everyone wanted to see us. When I became a woman, then a wife, and then a mom I hoped people would know me for me.”
So why does she choose to keep her own family-of-six under the watchful eye of the cameras?
“Reality TV helped me achieve that,” Tori continues. “People have asked me why I chose to film my life? Well, that’s easy… People were going to view me how they wanted to, no matter what. So, without anything to lose I wanted to share the real me. If nothing else it would be therapeutic. But, what emerged was nothing short of amazing.”
She adds: “I went from being tabloid fodder to bonding with women (and some very special gay men) everywhere! I didn’t gain fans, I made friends. But, I wanted more of a connection.”
And then ediTORIal was born.
“So, I created ediTORIal,” she shares. ”An outlet to inspire and be inspired by all of you. I never could have guessed over a year and a half ago that a true community of cyber friendships could run so deep. But, you have all truly become a second family to me. So much so that I wanted to blend my worlds of reality and community.”
Next up? Online video documentation of the high-profile family.
“Here, I give you documenTORI. In this exclusive web series I will share my family’s most intimate moments, memories, and milestones,” Tori writes. “From my last doctors appointment before Finn’s birth, to Hattie’s first steps, to being inside the recovery room after Finn was born and so much more.”
“There’s no reality crew, hair & makeup, or commercials this time,” she adds. “These are home videos of my family made by my family to share with all of you here on ediTORIal. Thank you for all the unconditional love and support you have shown us. Life gives us the moments… we create the memories.”
