I watched the Oxygen show "Tori and Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood" for the first time last night. I thought it was cute! I have long believed that Tori Spelling is probably very misunderstood and has been terribly misrepresented in the press. I grew up (partly) with a mother very similar to hers (money is the key to happiness...the bigger the better...fulfilling her OWN childhood dreams vicariously through me...you get the drift) so I understand where she's coming from on that front.
Last night's episode had her doing her book tour while seven months pregnant. She's overtired, overstressed, and worried about planning a birthday party for her one year old. Sound familiar? All the while, she's hormonal and goes off on her sweet hubby for "neglecting" her when she returns home from her trip to NYC. He actually offered her "buttered noodles" that were still sitting on the stove from his earlier meal. C'mon, Dean. Really? She's schlepped across the country to promote her book in order to bring home the proverbial family bacon and all you can offer her upon her return is buttered noodles? Dr. Daddy's no Bobby Flay, but I can guarandamnedtee you that he'd be offering something more than THAT. Other than that minor incident, however, Dean does seem like quite the mensch.
My favorite part of the episode had to be when Dean was cooking dinner for master Liam. He described the returning of the hot dog to the plastic bag so that it could be saved for later. Something about putting the wiener into the bag now, but in the future he should be aware of putting the bag over the wiener. "When in doubt, shroud the sprout." It's too good.
You can check out the show on the Oxygen Network. And I'm definitely planning to read her book, sTORI Telling.
