Tori Spelling to write memoir

Tori SpellingPoor little rich girl Tori Spelling has signed a deal with publisher Simon & Schuster to compile her memoirs. A number of questions may spring to mind for our TV Squad readers:

1. Does any thirty-three year old who isn't Dave Eggers have anything useful to say in a memoir? Maybe not, but we'll give Tori the benefit of the doubt as she is a celebrity and descendant of the man who was television - Aaron Spelling.

2. Is Tori literate? Well, she memorized all her scenes for 90210 and So noTORIous, so we know she can read. She does, however, plan on using a ghostwriter for her book. We can only hope that Tori's scribe will be chosen from the TV Squad blogger stable.

3. Is Tori just doing this because she got stiffed by her dad in the will? Probably. As was widely-reported in the celebrity press, Tori was shortchanged in her father's will and has zero relationship with her mother, who wasn't depicted too kindly in the semi-autobiographical series So noTORIous.

Tori has spent the past year picking up the pieces with husband Dean McDermott, with whom she is expecting a child in the Spring. The two will be featured in an upcoming Oxygen reality series which chronicles the couple's attempts at running a bed and breakfast. Love her or hate her for what she represents, Tori did prove with her VH1 series that she has some sense of humor about herself, her family and her 90210 past. Let's hope that her sense of humor has remained intact so that we get a fun, dishy celebrity tome instead of an angst-filled family epic.
