Tori Spelling:Best Quotes
“It’s always when you think that you’ve lost a little of the baby weight that someone steps in grabs a handful of a now sans baby soft belly and asks the inevitable When are you due?”
“When a marriage fails, the story of the relationship changes. The best parts, the parts that made you think getting married was a good idea, fade from memory.”
“It’s much harder to give up on family. Deep down you want it to work so badly that you keep making the same mistake.”
I love sharing my stories and experiences with people and connecting to them on both a humorous and emotional level.
I’ve had the two procedures that probably every other woman in Hollywood has had done.
“I want to be a positive role-model for my daughter. The last thing I want to put out there is that it’s acceptable to be too thin or have an eating disorder because you’re in Hollywood.”
“Sometimes, when I’m alone, I put on six-inch heels and wear nothing else and dance around in front of the mirror and do my little stripper dance.”
“I look at Liv Tyler and think ‘It’s not fair’, because I can’t find a flaw on her. And on top of that she seems nice, so it’s really not fair.”
“People are always saying that Hollywood messes up kids. I’m like, ‘No, families mess up kids!’ I grew up in Hollywood, and I’m perfectly fine. If my children want to go into the entertainment business, I won’t stop them, as long as they’re passionate about it.”
Tori Spelling: Life Lessons
Tori Spelling is someone who has done so many things and been through a lot in life. There are a lot of lessons we can learn from her. Here are three.
1. Don’t believe everything celebrities say
A lot of celebrities try to push this image that they are very similar to a regular, average person. However, that’s far from the truth. Most celebrities need to look good as their image is a big part of their appeal. Because of that, celebrities undergo extreme measures to look their best. They work out very hard, diet very strictly and even have cosmetic surgery procedures. Whenever a celebrity talks about losing weight with ease, we shouldn’t believe it right away.
2. Stop comparing yourself to others
Jennifer Lopez and Shakira can lose all their pregnancy fat in a few months, that doesn’t mean it’s going to be the same for average people. A lot of the time, the pictures on magazine covers are not even authentic. A lot of the photographs are extensively airbrushed and edited to make celebrities look flawless. Tori Spelling has admitted to using all those techniques and that’s proof enough.
3. Don’t be rushed about your Post-Partum Weight Loss
This saying is very true, “It took 9 months to put the weight on, it will take 9 months to get it off.”
Crash dieting is always a bad idea. New mothers need to breastfeed their babies and as a result, need to consume more calories. If the mother doesn’t get enough nutrition, her body won’t be able to produce enough milk for the baby. Never try to drop the baby weight with the help of some extreme diet.
