Tori Spelling Reflects On Reality TV Stint, Reveals 'I Like Being Able To Be Myself And Be Authentic'
Tori Spelling is not done with reality TV just yet.
"I truly believe in season 1 of True Tori, I felt like it was an important message," the Scary Movie 2 star told Us Weekly, noting it gave her the ability to share her own story. "It was my way of getting my narrative [out] because everyone else was telling my story. It was a good message. I feel like for people everywhere going through that stuff."
Despite her appreciation for the show, Spelling reportedly admitted: "It probably shouldn’t have gone on past season 1. It became a little dysfunctional all around."
Spelling told the publication she has fond memories of filming Tori & Dean with her estranged husband, Dean McDermott, and their children. "I love that because … it’s their life. They were born on TV, like the first three, pretty much," she gushed. "I love showing them that and being like, 'Look at these cute scenes when you were one and two years old.' So they definitely watched."

True Tori aired in 2014 and lasted for two seasons. The Hush actress is currently starring in Messyness with pal Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi — who has been by Spelling's side as her apparent marital woes rage on — Adam Rippon and Teddy Ray.
Meanwhile, Spelling and McDermott's relationship has been making headlines amid a slew of divorce rumors.
An OK! insider previously spilled that their relationship only lasted so long because of their children, but the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum "has been miserable for ages, but didn’t have the fortitude to leave."
According to the source, the blonde beauty had some time to reflect on their marriage when McDermott headed to Canada to work on a project earlier this year. "During this time apart, she realized she’s a lot stronger than she gives herself credit for," the insider explained. "She learned to make decisions for herself and to love herself again."
Now those close to Spelling are hinting that the actress may be ready to throw in the towel as early as the start of the New Year.
Spelling and the Chopped Canada host tied the knot in 2006. The estranged couple shares children Liam, 14, Stella, 13, Hattie, 10, Finn, 9 and Beau, 4.
