Tori Spelling has a charmed life now with an adoring husband, three gorgeous children and a fourth on the way.
The 38-year-old had previously revealed that she was once in an emotionally abusive relationship that totally shattered her confidence.
The former Beverly Hills 90210 star opened up to Entertainment Weekly about ex-boyfriend Nick Savalas who she accused of crushing her self-esteem.
"It was a nightmare. He was never physically abusive, but he was verbally abusive, telling me 10 times a day how ugly I was," the blonde beauty said.
And in a blog for her site ediTORIal, the proud mama writes what advice she would give to her 21-year-old self.
Tori finally ended the two-year relationship in 1995 and wishes she had the same confidence she has now.
"I would tell 21-year-old Tori that she's strong, beautiful, smart, and can do anything that she sets her mind to. At 21, my biggest obstacle (well, aside from a bad boyfriend) was myself," she wrote in the blog.
"Although I don't believe in regrets and think every moment makes us the women and moms we ultimately become. It would be nice to give this advice!"
Tori now has a successful line of businesses and a reality show sharing her life with husband Dean McDermott, 45, and their kids; Liam, six, Stella, five, and 10-month-old Hattie with their fans.
Tori also joked that she would have "taught myself how to tweeze my eyebrows!"
Nick is the son of the late Kojak star Telly Savalas and is is the half-sister of former Desperate Housewives actress Nicolette Sheridan. Nick has never publicly spoken about the allegations.
