Boring parts of life are boring . . . no matter who does them
TORI Spelling is an interesting one. Spoilt little rich girl written into an acting career by her TV mogul father Aaron via Beverly Hills 90210.
But the thing is— 20 years later— here Spelling is with her own show . . . and where the heck is Steve Sanders, aka Ian Ziering?
Tori and hubby Dean are two of a seemingly endless list of celebs (or should that be former celebs) with their own reality shows.
Which is bizarre. I mean, why do we want to see former Spice Girl Mel B brushing her children’s hair, or the Kardashians going shopping? Or watch Gene Simmons do anything at all?
Boring parts of life are boring . . . no matter who does them. There’s no real way to make vacuuming sexy— not that many of these celebs would actually do their own housework, but you get my drift.
Here we watch Tori’s youngest kid Stella learning to be toilet-trained— oh yeah, we actually see her on the loo doing a poo.
‘‘ It’s coming out. I hear it,’’ is the charming commentary. Really, Tori, really? Do we really need to see (and hear) your kid pooing?
And, further into the episode, Stella gets wee all over Dean when she sits on him on the couch.
Life has these decidedly unglamorous moments, but I’mjust not sure why celebs feel the need to broadcast them— and why we would chose to watch.
Tori is a ditz, and I mean that in an endearing way . . . otherwise I’d call her an idiot. This is the woman who Tori and Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood Arena, Foxtel/Austar, 8.30pm, Friday worried about her baby rupturing her organs with its kicks when she was pregnant.
Seriously. Tonight’s episode sees the couple trying to rekindle the romance, which has suffered with two young kids.
This is the part where being rich does have its perks.
The pair pick up and head off on a lavish romantic weekend, which includes a hot air balloon ride.
‘‘ Just me and you and the great unknown,’’ Dean says as they hit the open road, except he has his headphones in his ears . . . maybe a wise move.
Scared-of-practicallyeverything Tori spends most of the balloon ride crouching, terrified, in the basket, unable to see the sights.
‘‘ What happens if you’re up here and you have to poop?’’ she asks the balloon pilot.
Again with the poo talk . . . the girl is obsessed. Never-ending banality: Tori Spelling and hubby Dean bore us silly.
