Mommywood Review

The book "Mommywood" by Tori Spelling is amazing.  She doesn't hold back and tells all in every book she writes.  She talks about the mean things people said to her about her looks growing up and how she got a nose job.  She talks about the joys of parenting. She will have you laughing at her stories about her kids. She honestly tells all to even include a story of Stella her daughter having a very poopy diaper.  You will laugh out loud as you read this book. 

Tori also goes into the story of her mom and her who do not speak anymore.  She talks about how her mom has not met Stella yea. This is such an interesting story that it draws you right into the book.  They have since made up and her mom even does things with the kids now. I think it is great that they have gotten past all of their problems.

She talks a lot in the book about how important it is to her that her children have a normal life. She wants to be a very hands on mom and she does it.  She is right there changing diapers and in the middle of all of it. I love this about her. 

She does talk about some of her celebrity friends. She mentions how Chelsie Handler talks bad about her all the time. It is all interesting to me. There are a lot of cute little stories for you to enjoy.  I would highly recommend this book. It is a very quick read also.  It is 256 pages, but you get interested in her stories and before you know it you are done reading the book.

Thanks for sharing this interesting book! Boy would I not want to be a celebrity raising a baby, parenting is tough as is - that must make it even harder (except for the financial aspect!)

Not that fascinating.
review by . June 09, 2009
She describes herself as a "work in progress"—both as a grownup and a mother—and then talks to the reader in a very down-to-earth voice about her efforts to make her home and everyday life as "normal" as can be for her husband and children, considering that she lives in the land where motherhood exists against a backdrop of red carpets, premieres, and basically living "on the set" of a reality show.  A world where her son leafs through celebrity magazines, identifying himself and his parents …

About this book

Wiki

 IF YOU THOUGHT TINSELTOWN WAS TOUGH . . .Tori Spelling might have grown up with everything a girl could wish for, but these days she’s just another suburban working mom . . . whose toddler regularly recognizes her in the pages of US Weekly. Welcome toMommywood, where the stars are two feet tall and your neighbors know who you are before you move in. Like most parents, Tori wants her children to have the one thing she didn’t have as a kid—a normal family. On their hit Oxygen reality show, Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, the starlet and her husband Dean McDermott regularly wrestle dirty diapers, host the neighborhood block party, and tackle temper tantrums on the red carpet. But when the cameras aren’t rolling, Tori’s still having awkward run-ins with a former 90210 costar at a laser tag birthday party, scooping rogue poo out of the kiddie pool on a resort vacation, and racing to win back her pre-baby body before the media starts calling her fat. For all her suburban fantasies, Tori Spelling is no June Cleaver. With the same down-to-earth wit that made her entertaining memoir sTORI telling a #1 New York Times bestseller, Tori tells the hilarious and humbling stories of life as a mom in the limelight, from learning to be the kind of parent her own mother never was to revealing what it’s like to raise a family while everyone is watching. Mommywood is an irresistible snapshot of ...
