uncharted terriTORI is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
Welcome to Los Angeles, birthplace and residence of Tori Spelling.

It’s not every Hollywood starlet whose name greets you on a Virgin Airways flight into la-la land. But Tori Spelling has come to accept that her life is a spectacle. Her name is her brand, and business is booming. Too bad when your job is to be yourself, you can’t exactly take a break.

Tori finally has everything she thought she wanted—a loving family and a successful career—but trying to live a normal life in Hollywood is a little weird. With the irresistible wit, attitude, and humor that fans have come to love, the New York Times bestselling author of sTORI telling and Mommywood is back with more hilarious, heartwarming, and candid stories of juggling work, marriage, motherhood, and reality television cameras.

Tori comes clean about doing her time on jury duty, stalking herself on Twitter, discovering her former 90210 castmates’ "I Hate Tori" club, contracting swine flu, and contacting Farrah Fawcett from the dead. Like many mothers, she struggles to find balance (Stars, they’re just like us!)—only most women don’t have to battle it out with paparazzi at the grocery store. She talks openly about the darker side of life in the spotlight: media scrutiny over her weight and her marriage to Dean McDermott, her controversial relationship with Dean’s ex-wife, and her unfolding reconciliation with her mother.

Having it all isn’t always easy—especially when you’re a perfectionist—but with the help of her unconventional family and friends, an underwear-clad spiritual cleansing or two, and faith in herself, she’s learning to find her happy ending. Because when you’re Tori Spelling, every day brings uncharted terriTORI.

Just when you thought sTORI time was over, the beloved Hollywood starlet has so much more to say.

"My life has changed dramatically in the past several years. I married Dean; we moved several times; we had two children; we created a show that has gone into its fifth season on the air. I have love. I have a family. I have a home. I have work. It’s all I ever wished for. But trying to be a perfect wife, mother, and mini-mogul has its challenges, especially if, like me, you want to be perfect at all of them at the same time." —from uncharted terriTORI

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Tori Spelling's books never fail to interest me. Once I start reading them, I find it very hard to put them down. She has a great style of writing and she adds in just the right amount of humor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tori being Tori... love it! I love watching Tori and Dean and reading her books just adds that much to my obsession with her. When I was growing up I really didn't obsess over 90210 or Tori Spelling, but recently I have gravitated towards her shows and reading about her life - no idea why, but I do. It's a guilty pleasure of mine along with a few other reality TV shows about celebrities. So picking up this book from the library was a must. I had already read sTORI telling and Mommywood, so this made sense. I loved reading sTORI telling because it focused on her relationships past and present. And reading Mommywood was fun because it focused on becoming a Mom and how she tried to juggle her celebrity life with that of being a hands on Mom. Unchartered TerriTORI focuses on trying to find balance in her life - she is a workaholic, trying to do everything perfectly (which impossible), and trying fix all the problems in her life. The thing I love about Tori is that nothing is too taboo for her, she lives her live as an open book and wears her heart on her sleeve. She really is just like everyone else with the same worries, but obsesses over a lot more than most. It's a quick read and just wanted I was needing this past few days. The things I think make her quirky and interesting are her forays into voodoo, visiting psychics and speaking to the dead, as well as her penchant for throwing the perfect party/event with themes and all. Honestly, a lot of what she was saying was just reiterating what you would have seen on the show., but for those who do not watch the show it would be worth borrowing from the library to continue following Tori on her life journey.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good weekend read I read Spelling's previous books, and enjoyed them all. Her third book follows the same formula, as she writes about aspects of her life that she knows people are interested in: her relationship with her mother, her marriage, her businesses and more. This is not a book that will challenge your brain or enlighten you, but it's a good, fun read.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from "A fun beach read". As with her previous books, Tori Spelling is charming and self effacing. She is really just a typical Mom in an untypical setting. Hollywood will never be the same again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another 'must read' for Tori Spelling fans! Tori’s third book was a fun fast read filled with hilarious, heartwarming, and honest stories of juggling work, marriage, motherhood, and reality television cameras. She writes candidly about the darker side of life in the spotlight: media scrutiny over her weight, her marriage to Dean McDermott, her controversial relationship with Dean’s ex-wife, and her unfolding reconciliation with her mother. This interesting book reveals much more about Tori than is shown on television and is once again written with the irresistible wit, attitude, and humor that fans have come to love. If you enjoyed her first two books you'll definitely like this one too!

About the Book

Actress and "New York Times"-bestselling author Tori Spelling is back with a brand-new collection of essays about living a normal life in Hollywood, where life is anything but normal.

Read from the Book

INTRODUCTION: Welcome to Los Angeles A few weeks ago my friend Jacob was flying Virgin American from New York to L.A. As the plane began its final descent into LAX, the cute and obviously gay lead flight attendant made an announcement to the cabin. He said, “Welcome to Los Angeles, birthplace and residence of Tori Spelling.” When my friend reported this story to me via email, I thought it was hilarious, but I also didn’t know exactly what to make of it. I was born in L.A. Fact. I still live here. Fact. But on what grounds is that of common interest to an airplane full of diverse travelers? Is it a compliment? Is it a joke? A little of both? Of all the famous people, of all the actors, of all the tabloid darlings, of all the gay icons (if I can call myself that), why me? But as someone who produces and stars in a show that follows my daily life for the entertainment of millions of people (holy crap!), I can’t spend too long on questions like that. After 90210 and so many TV movies, my career had slowed, and recently, in my reality show, it has found new life. The name Tori Spelling draws viewers, and it sells magazines, books, a jewelry line, a children’s clothing line. And my name also, apparently, occasionally welcomes certain unsuspecting travelers as they arrive in Los Angeles. So it goes. I’ve come to accept that the small moments of my life, my relationship, my family, my business ventures—usually in edited, broadcast form—
