Först ut i bokklubben är Tori Spelling, som efter sin tid som skådespelare i "Beverly Hills" insåg att hennes enda framtid låg i att vara sig själv. Så nu gör hon dokusåpor, och har redan hunnit med att skriva två böcker om sitt liv. "sTORItelling" och "Mommywood" och senare i år kommer "Uncharted terriTORI".
Här är hennes variant på livspusselproblematiken:
"I’m constantly working. I work seven days a week. It’s not just the TV show. I have fifty million different projects and obligations. My jewelry line. My children’s clothing line. Meetings about a new website. Talk show appearances.
Building Dean’s and my production company. Developing new ideas for TV and movies. Even writing books! For better or worse, I have the kind of fame where my name is a brand. I know it sounds weird, but we treat “Tori Spelling” like a business. What do people think of me? Do they recognize my name? Do they trust Tori Spelling’s taste? Even when we’re not working on the series, my life is a never-ending meeting about building the Tori Spelling brand.
Not every actor goes this route: I suppose I could do the reality show and leave it at that. But I can’t. I’m telling you, it’s the curse of the Hollywood actor. It’s impossible to turn down opportunities. So then I think, I’ll work my ass off now, earn bundles of money, and then I can be home with my family one day. But we all know how that will turn out. I’ll work hard for fifteen years, finally earn enough money to be home, but by then my kids won’t even want me around. My prime earning years are their prime growing years. It gives me grief and guilt every single day."
