  • Tori Spelling: (about inheriting just under one million dollars from her father, TV producer Aaron Spelling, despite the enormity of the his estate) I think part of me, in the back of my head, maybe hoped it would be different? But I hated myself for hoping it would be different, because I didn't want to take advantage, I didn't want to be that girl who needed, or wanted my dad's money.

  • Tori Spelling: My mom and I have had our problems, but I was raised by a nanny that I called Nanny, and she taught me plenty about how to be a good mother.

  • Tori Spelling: 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: (about reprising her role as Donna Martin in the 'Beverly Hills, 90210' spinoff, '90210,' ) It's like getting the chance to revisit a childhood memory. When I heard about the show, there was no hesitation. I was like, "I have to do it for the fans!"

  • Tori Spelling: I never thought I'd have a daughter. Dean's first child [from a previous marriage] is a boy, and then we had Liam, and I thought, "Because I'm so girly, I'll have all boys." But my daughter....now I get to say that I have a daughter!

  • Tori Spelling: (on the death of her dog, Mimi) She was a star and a true lady, and she will be missed greatly. People everywhere knew her by name. I loved when fans wanted her over me.

  • Tori Spelling: (about divorcing her first husband for Dean McDermott) When I got together with Dean, my friends thought, "Here we go again with Tori!" But now they've all said individually, "Look where you are." For once, my instincts were right. It worked out. Dean is my soul mate. For all the mistakes I know I've made, it's hard to have deep regrets when things turn out so right. It starts to feel like destiny. With our kids, and our lives together, it feels safe, protected by the love we have for each other.

  • Tori Spelling: I knew early on that I was Aaron Spelling's daughter, and that fact made the people around me act differently. Because of that, I guess, all I wanted was to be normal. Isn't that the way it always goes? Plenty of children spend their days wishing they were rich, and what do the rich kids do? Wish they were normal. I guess we all glamorize whatever it is that we aren't, but I know we rich kids can't go around asking for sympathy.
