'Tori & Dean' star Tori Spelling to pen new book about motherhood
By Christopher Rocchio, 07/22/2008
Tori Spelling's two kids apparently aren't the only ones she'll be telling stories to.
Simon & Schuster have announced they will publish the Tori & Dean: Inn Love star's second book -- tentatively titled "Mommywood."
The publishing company released Spelling's first book -- "sTORI Telling" -- earlier this year, and it spent several weeks on The New York Times best-seller list.
"We absolutely adore Tori Spelling at SSE and are thrilled to be working with her on a second book," said Simon Spotlight Entertainment publisher Jennifer Bergstrom. "She is a joy to work with and her smart, funny, and honest voice is meant to be in print."
"Mommywood" will focus on the births and young childhoods of her newborn daughter Stella Doreen and 18-month-old son Liam Aaron -- both of whom she had with husband Dean McDermott.
"Writing my first book, 'sTori Telling,' was an amazing, cathartic journey for me," said Spelling. "Now, being a mom of two beautiful babies, I'm excited to share more stories as I embark on this new chapter of my life."
Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood -- the third season of Oxygen's Tori & Dean: Inn Love reality series -- premiered last month.
It follows Spelling and McDermott as they leave the Chateau La Rue bed-and-breakfast in Fallbrook, CA to buy a new home in Hollywood; pursue new business ventures; search for a preschool for Liam; and prepare for Stella's birth.
"Mommywood" is tentatively scheduled to be released next April.
