Clearing things up! Tori Spelling is used to hearing rumors about her left and right, as she has grown up in the spotlight — however, there is one thing that she is eager to respond to: all those plastic surgery rumors.
“The one thing for me that has stuck forever was the plastic surgery thing,” the 46-year-old recently told People. “I literally had my nose done and my boobs done, and that’s it. I’m constantly reading that I’ve done more.” Although, these rumors aren’t new for the Beverly Hills, 90210 actress, they’ve been going on for quite some time.
“People have been talking about me having plastic surgery since I was 17,” the Stori Telling author explained. “I remember my dad [producer Aaron Spelling] saying, ‘Don’t worry. It will go away next week.’ But that one thing has stayed with me my entire career!” Growing up with her famous father also made Tori a lot more aware of how the public and the media perceived her.
“I always felt so misunderstood,” Tori revealed. “I was either Aaron Spelling’s daughter or I was [my BH90210 character] Donna Martin. I was nobody else. And it was really hard for me to get past that. And I became a people pleaser because if I didn’t smile it was like, ‘Oh the producer’s rich daughter, she’s a bitch. For me doing reality [shows], I could show people, ‘I’m just like you!’ I always thought if people could meet me, we’d be friends.” But time and experience has allowed Tori to accept how things are.
“It’s fun to own it!,” she said. These days, Tori is quite happy with who she is, and is very confident — earlier this year she shared a bikini photo with costars Jennie Garth and Gabrielle Carteris. “Sunday family dinner … #nomakeup,” the blonde beauty captioned the photo. Although, some people bashed Tori for the snap, but her husband, Dean McDermott, came to her rescue.
“I love how you haters have private [accounts]!” the Chopped Canada alum, 52, said in defense of his wife. “Let’s see what you trolls look like [you] cowards!” Now that’s how to stick up for someone!
