My Evening with Tori Spelling. Plus, We’re Giving Away a Signed Copy of Her Book!

Ok…I didn’t really spend the whole evening with Tori Spelling…It was more like a minute. HA! I’m such a tease. So, last night Tori Spelling, along with her bestie Mehran Farat, came to Tampa for a signing of her new book Uncharted Territori. Let me just say that if I wasn’t a Tori Spelling fan before (which I was in case you were wondering) I would be now.

Despite having been there for hours by the time I got to her, she was SO friendly, gracious and I must say…humble! I thanked her for comin’ out and she stopped me and thanked me. I got a very genuine vibe from her. And don’t even get me started on Mehran. What a sweetie his is! He asked me what I was doing afterward and I said getting a cocktail (cuz that’s how I roll) and he was all…I could use one! If only I could have shared a glass of vino with Mehran…SIGH. Tori has one fabulous P.I.C. that’s for sure!

    I was NEVER a Donna fan but I find Tori so endearing. Considering she’s “hollywood royalty”, I’m surprised at how down to earth she seems.

    When my hubby is away, I tivo about ten hours of Tori & Dean and pour myself a big glass of zin.

    Hi friend! I am so sorry that I’ve been M.I.A. Life has been hectic to say the least.

    That is so fun that you went to the book signing. I’ve heard wonderful things about all of Tori’s books and I’m sure this one won’t be any different. I need to get cracking on reading them.

    It sounds like Tori and Mehran were both very nice. I love all of the photos that you got to take! Your hair is looking fabulous btw. I saw your vlog (so cute) and love that you donated your hair to locks of love. That is such a worthy cause.
