Tori Spelling: “This little community of love I created…that’s my legacy to pass on to them.”

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

Attention all 90210 fans! Tori Spelling and her California co-star Jennie Garth are back with their new sitcom Mystery Girls, premiering tonight on ABC Family. Parents caught up with the pair at a Mammarazzi screening event hosted by The MOMS, one of a series of town hall style events hosted by the mommy lifestyle brand. In terms of mommyhood, not all of the mysteries are solved yet, but Tori revealed to Parents what it’s like to go back to work with four kids at home (Liam, 8, Stella, 7, Hattie, 3, and Finn, 2), the secret behind her fabulous birthday bashes, and her proudest accomplishment as a mother.

P: Having four kids, how did your mommy duties play into your decision to go back to work full time?

TS: Having done a lot of reality work since Liam was born, I’ve had that luxury of always being able to have them with me, so this is my first job that takes me away from them in eight years. It’s been a definite transition. I don’t think I was completely ready. Finn is still so young. But the timing was right and in this business you don’t always get a second chance, you know? We had an amazing show that ran for 10 years and to me that was like lightening in a bottle and that is what this felt like with this show. It felt like Wow this is the moment for it so I gotta take it and create it and do it. The nice thing is they do get to come to set, so I get to see my kids. We shoot very close to where we live, so it’s a nice balance.

P: Not only are you starring in the sitcom, you’re also the creator and executive producer. Where did the idea for Mystery Girls come from?

TS: When I first came up with the idea it was “Mystery Mom” because I was a mom and I wanted to do something in the realm of comedy, but I also love mysteries. I love like the 80s, 90s mysteries and I was like “I’ve never seen a sitcom do it, why not?” And two women doing it! The idea that [our characters] used to be on a show together was a wink wink to 90210. It went from Mystery Mom to Mystery Girls because it opened it up to everyone. But what we bring to these roles, it’s not just like you could have hired any two actresses to play these roles because there is a friendship and a sisterhood that goes for 20 years that you can’t write that.

P: Before Mystery Girls, your birthday parties on your reality show were famous. Do you have any fun parties planned and where do you get your inspirations?

TS: I did it the wrong way. I’m just putting it out there. I did it backwards. I went all out for the first two and then I kept having babies and now at four I’m like “There’s always a party, oh my G-d.” As a fulltime working mom, you just can’t keep doing the big parties. We’re scaling back now and we’re remembering it’s about family and who’s at the party, not about how big they are, even though I do still fixate on the details. It’s all about the DIY. Stella’s definitely a mini-me as far as decorating. Inspirations just come from when I was a kid. Everything that is out kind of comes back. So I always try to bring things back. Right now we’re into Jell-o molds. Bring em back!

P: You mentioned Stella got your decorating sense. Are any of your four kids a mini-me?

TS: I’m gonna have to hear that question again because as soon as you said four I was like oh my gosh I have four. All of them have a little, yes. Liam is definitely stubborn like me. He’s creative and passionate like me. He holds in his feelings like me. Stella does the same. Stella’s a DIY goddess, so she got my crafting gene and love for it. She loves fashion like I do. Stella does everything I do. We have a lot of fun together. We’re best friends. Hattie has a much bigger voice than I’ve ever had. I would love to have Hattie’s voice. I’m still trying to find my voice and Hattie has it. She’s loud and proud and she’s number three. I will see her using her hands like me—I talk a lot with my hands. The other day she was on the phone and she had her hands on her hip just how I talk on the phone. I saw her walking and I was like “That’s my walk.” And then Finn. Finn and I have a really special bond. I had a hard pregnancy with him, so he and I…I just want to hold him and never let him go. He has a little soulful spirit and he looks a lot like me when I was a baby. Oh my gosh there are so many.

P: What has your proudest moment been as a mom?

TS: [When they show love to each other.] Mine are so little that they were kind of their own people and now they’re starting to love each other. They are just starting to help each other and the other day Hattie needed help off the couch and she was starting to cry and she was like “Sissy Sissy!” Stella came running over and lifted her off the couch. She changes Finn’s diaper and he looks for her. It’s knowing that there’s a little community of love I created. That they have each other and that’s my legacy to pass on to them. I’ve given them this. I’ve given them love that will surround them forever.

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

This post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

Happy Halloween from Celebrity Baby Scoop!

What better way to celebrate the spook-tacular holiday than by looking at our favorite celebrity kids in their boo-tiful costumes!

From Neil Patrick Harris’ festive family-of-four, to Alyson Hannigan‘s colorful crew, to Tori Spelling‘s foodie-themed fun, let’s take a look at some of the best Halloween costumes in Hollywood.

Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris shared an adorable picture with his twins – son Gideon and daughter Harper – dressed up last Halloween in Wizard of Oz costumes.

“Happy Halloween everyone! Hope your tricking and treating gotcha lotsa booty! Here’s our family costume pic,” NPH posted via Twitter.

We love seeing the Harris-Burtkas’ Halloween costumes!

The year before, the festive family-of-four dressed up in a Peter Pan theme, with NPH going as Captain Hook, David as Peter and their twins as Smee and Tinkerbell.

And not to mention this year’s Alice in Wonderland theme!

“Our costumes for the Halloween carnival at the kids’ preschool yesterday,” NPH posted via Instagram. “But 10/31 will be frighteningly different..! @DavidBurtka came up with both themes/costumes. He’s amazing.”

Sandra Bullock

Gravity star Sandra Bullock and her 3-year-old son Louis attended a Halloween party as skeletons in Studio City, Calif. this year (October 19).

The Oscar winner wore ghoulish face paint and a black and white lace dress with a bone-like corset. To match his mama, the sweet preschooler donned a black and white skeleton jumpsuit with removable wings.

Last Halloween, the adorable mother-son duo dressed up as Jessie and Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story.

Tia Mowry-Hardrict

Instant Mom star Tia Mowry-Hardrict was all smiles with her son Cree, 2, in West Hollywood, Calif. this year (October 13).

Sporting a Superman costume, Cree and his famous mama had a blast picking out the perfect pumpkins at Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch.

Alyson Hannigan

Alyson Hannigan and husband Alexis Denisof love getting dressed up at Halloween.

The cute couple were seen trick-or-treating with their daughters Satyana and Keeva in Brentwood, Calif. last Halloween Day. The festive family-of-four were a colorful bunch in their seahorse costumes.

The high-profile family love celebrating Halloween. The year prior, they dressed up as a scarecrow couple alongside their sweet daughter Satyana who went as a pumpkin.

And who could forget those fabulous kangaroo costumes when Sati was just a lil’ baby!

Jack Osbourne

“The Princess of Darkness,” proud papa Jack Osbourne captioned a shot of his adorable baby girl.

Dressed up as her 62-year-old rockstar grandfather Ozzy Osbourne, 1-year-old Pearl Osbourne nailed it with a long black wig and purple shades in the hilarious photo.

LeAnn Rimes & Eddie Cibrian

Grease is the word for LeAnn Rimes.

The country singer dressed up as Sandy from the classic movie last Halloween. She posted photos on her Twitter account of herself, husband Eddie Cibrian and stepsons Mason, and Jake.

She wrote: “Family of the Grease days, Indiana Jones and a tribute to our navy seals.”

Alyssa Milano

Who’s the Boss? star Alyssa Milano got into the Halloween spirit with her sweet son Milo last Halloween.

“Happy Halloween from Tinkerbell and Peter Pan,” Alyssa posted via Instagram.

The actress and her baby boy looked like the perfect duo in their Halloween costumes.

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba and husband Cash Warren got festive with their two daughters, Honor and Haven, last Halloween.

Just days before Halloween Day, the sweet sisters were spotted in matching Incredibles costumes as they headed out with their movie star mom in West Hollywood, Calif.

The Sin City actress didn’t join in on the fun on that occasion, but she did later post a pic to Twitter in the festive spirit!

Tori Spelling

Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott are proud parents to four children: Liam, Stella, Hattie and Finn. Last year, the proud mom shared some adorable shots of her costumed cuties.

When he was just one-month-old, her youngest child, son Finn, celebrated his first ever Halloween in adorable fashion, dressing up as a little sushi roll.

The reality star mama seemed to pick a foodie theme for her kids’ costumes last year: she also posted a photo of her then 1-year-old daughter Hattie dressed up as spaghetti and meatballs.

Snooki

Baby first Halloween!

Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi shared a festive photo of her family dressed up in their Halloween costumes last year.

“We got superhero swag. #Lorenzos1stHalloween,” the proud new mom captioned the photo with fiancé Jionni LaValle and their then 2-month-old son Lorenzo.

5 Back-to-Back Babies in Hollywood

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

This post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

They enjoyed pregnancy so much, they did it again – quickly!

We’re taking a look at Hollywood’s back-to-back baby boom. From Megan Fox, to Britney Spears, to Jessica Simpson,  see which star moms are making their kids close in age. 

Megan Fox

Handsome couple Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green welcomed their first child, son Noah, on September 27, 2012.

Less than one year later (in August 2013), they announced their second pregnancy.

Brian recently admitted he’s not sure how they’ll manage juggling a toddler, a new baby, and his job on Anger Management.

“We honestly have no idea and we discuss it daily and think, ‘How are we going to do this?’” he admitted. “I think we’ll see when it happens. People do it all the time.”

But it sounds like his boss, Charlie Sheen, is more than understanding.

“I couldn’t really ask for a better situation than that,” Brian, also dad to 11-year-old son Kassius, said. “[Charlie's] one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met and worked with.”

Britney Spears

Oops, she did it again!

Pop superstar Britney Spears and ex-husband Kevin Federline welcomed their two sons one year apart — almost to the day.

The couple’s firstborn son, Sean Preston, was born on September 14, 2005, and their second son, Jayden James, arrived on September 12, 2006.

Reportedly, Britney wanted to schedule her second C-section birth to coincide with Sean Preston’s birthday, but her then-husband persuaded her to move the date back a couple days.

Tori Spelling

Currently, Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott have two 1-year-olds — and they’re not twins!

One month after their third child, daughter Hattie, was born, Tori got the unexpected news that she was pregnant for the fourth time.

“The new baby was clearly unplanned but I am thrilled and I would have lots of babies if I could, I love being a mom,” Tori said at the time of her fourth pregnancy.

“All my friends keep asking me [if it was planned] and I’m like, ‘Seriously? Hattie was one month old. Do you think it was planned?’” she continued. “I was up all night with feedings.”

“The doctor said, ‘Wait six weeks [to have sex],’ and Dean was like, ‘They tell everyone that.’ We didn’t wait that long with Stella or Liam,” Tori added. “I was like, ‘Well, I don’t want him to think that the sex is going downhill,’ so now we’re on baby No. 4.”

Son Finn arrived on August 30, 2012, while Hattie was born on October 10, 2011.

Jessica Simpson

Just seven months after Jessica Simpson welcomed her first child, daughter Maxwell, in May 2012, she and fiancé Eric Johnson confirmed that baby No. 2 was on the way.

“Pregnancy is a lot,” Jessica recently shared. “It was hard to do two so close together. I have this huge sense of accomplishment, and I feel in my heart that I’m done. But obviously, accidents do happen!”

Son Ace Knute was born on June 30, 2013, and Maxwell arrived on May 1, 2012.

Naomi Watts

Naomi Watts and her partner Liev Schreiber welcomed their two sons within 17 months of each other.

The couple’s first son, AlexanderSashaPete, was born on July 25, 2007, and their second son, SamuelKai,” arrived on December 13, 2008.

“I suppose I might consider having another child — if someone could guarantee me it would be a girl,” Naomi said.

“Two boys can be a lot to handle and sometimes you think it would be easier with two girls playing with their tea sets and dolls,” she added. “But Liev loves having two boys.”

Did you have your kids back-to-back as well?

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

This post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

In honor of on May 12, we asked some of our favorite celebrity moms how they’re planning to spend the special day.

From new moms Holly Madison and Giuliana Rancic to mom-of-four Tori Spelling, let’s look at how the stars celebrate all things mom.

Giuliana Rancic:
Reality stars Giuliana Rancic and Bill Rancic welcomed their first child, son Duke, in August 2012. The new mom opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her big plans to celebrate her first Mother’s Day.

“Bill and I are having our moms come to LA for Mother’s Day – to make it special for all of us,” she shared. “We’re planning a fancy bunch with the whole family at a nice hotel in Newport Coast and then a walk on the beach. Really, I just want to relax and enjoy the day together as a whole family.”

She added: “This Mother’s Day is especially meaningful because it’s my first time to celebrate as a mother, of course! After struggling for years to have a baby, it’s a real gift to be able to spend the special day with Bill, Duke and our family.”

Holly Madison:
Before welcoming her first child, daughter Rainbow, on March 5, Playboy model Holly Madison shared her hopes for her first Mother’s Day.

“I hope my boyfriend and I can find something fun to do that someone only a few months old will enjoy,” Holly shared. “Maybe we will take her to the Springs Preserve (a park here in Vegas) and see if she reacts to any of the animals and the nature.”

Tiffani Thiessen:
White Collar star Tiffani Thiessen is mom to 2-year-old daughter Harper. The Saved by the Bell alum talked about celebrating Mother’s Day in New York City with her mom and her daughter.

“Being a mom now myself, it is even more special,” she shared. “What’s great is we will be in New York again this year as I shoot Season 5 of White Collar. I’ll get to celebrate the day with my Mom and my daughter, all of us together.

Niki Taylor:
Supermodel Niki Taylor is proud mom to four children – 18-year-old twin sons Jake and Hunter, 4-year-old daughter Ciel, and son Rex, 17 months. Here’s what the blonde beauty had to say about what Mother’s Day means to her.

“I don’t know what my family has planned for me,” she admitted. ”I just want to be with my babies and I hope I am with my mom and my sister. My mom is still an amazing mom and she’s a wonderful grandmother as well. I thank her and always pray for her. I still always call her for advice. To me, Mother’s Day is about my mom and I want to be with her on that day. It is a day for the family to be together.”

She added: “My favorite Mother’s Day gifts are anything with chocolate or sugar in it [laughs]. Also, I think quality time is always the best gift.”

Earth Day in Hollywood: Celebrity Families Go Green

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

Celebrities Earth DayThis post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

Hollywood is going green! On April 22, more than one billion people around the globe will participate in Earth Day. In celebration, let’s take a look at eco-friendly celebrities like Jessica Alba, Mario Lopez, and Tori Spelling who inspire others to protect Mother Nature.

Tori Spelling
Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott are proud parents of four kids: sons Liam, 6, and Finn, 6 months, and daughters Stella, 4, and Hattie, 1.

The reality TV mama recently opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about going green “every day,” not just one day out of the year.

“Every day is Earth Day in our house,” Spelling said. “We definitely try to teach our kids to take care of the earth. Just the other day, actually, in fact it was in the playroom, Liam came up and said I turned off the lights in the playroom because I don’t want the earth to get sick. It was really cute.”

She added: “We teach all about recycling, we compost. We try our best to teach them how to take care of the earth.”

Jessica Alba
From her chic sense of style, to her hands-on playdates at the park, to her eco-friendly business, we can’t get enough of Jessica Alba. After creating The Honest Company last year, the mom-of-two is now promoting her debut book, The Honest Life.

“It’s a colorful how-to guidebook for people who want to make a healthy and non-toxic home without giving up the fun fashionable things,” Jessica told Celebrity Baby Scoop. “I hope people will be inspired to make the ideas their own and find what works for them.”

She went on to talk about modeling an eco-friendly lifestyle with husband Cash Warren and their two daughter Honor, 4, and Haven, 1.

“First and foremost, we try to model and practice eco-friendly habits for the girls,” Alba said. “Otherwise, we talk to them about being mindful and explain that things can be turned into something else one day. This can be as simple as teaching them about recyclables and showing how to sort bottles and cans from trash.”

She added: “We also do a lot of DIY crafts like using cardboard boxes to make airplanes and dollhouses—our creative playtime together similarly shows the girls about repurposing old items.”

The Sin City star says involving kids in the process is not only fun, but educational.

“Involving children in gardening and cooking is another great way to inspire eco-friendly living,” Alba shared. “Caring for the plants in our herb wall garden helps Honor understand the steps to growing food (including patience!), how it ultimately lands on her plate, and about being a good steward of the planet.”

The proud mom added: “Honor is also a great sous chef when we’re in the kitchen, so being a part of the dinner process encourages her to eat the foods she grows and develops her taste for fresh ingredients. Hopefully, this lays the foundation for children to prioritize their health and that of the planet.”

Tori Spelling: “Our Family Is Amazing and Complete”

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

This post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott are proud parents of “four amazing miracles” – sons Liam, 6, and Finn, 6 months, and daughters Stella, 4, and Hattie, 1. With two in diapers, things are “definitely chaotic” in the Spelling-McDermott household, but Tori says things have “gotten easier” in recent weeks.

Tori and Dean open up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about teaming up with Habitat for Humanity and the Valspar Color Project. They go on to talk about their newest addition, a “tough little dude,” and their older kids who love to play “caretaker” to baby Finn.

CBS: Tell us about teaming up with Habitat for Humanity and the Valspar Color Project. What is the online video series all about? What will you be showcasing on the series? How can we get involved?

TS: “We’ve partnered with Valspar Color Project to do this amazing transformation in our playroom. We have four, small, little kids and the playroom is really the hub of our home. We spend all our time in that room and the room was really lacking energy. We couldn’t figure out what it was, then we realized it was color. It had drab, beige walls…it was a great space, a great playroom, but it was just missing something.

So, with Color Match through Valspar, we were able to pick our perfect color match and transform our room with Rushing Stream as our new color. It’s great because people can go onto Valspar Paint’s Facebook page and there’s a link and you can actually see our video. They can see how our room is transformed and they can also view an app…the Perfect Color Match App. And, they can do it themselves.

Valspar figured out, with our personalities, our perfect color match. They can take the quiz online, they can paint their room, and they can share their room. If they share their perfect color match, $1 is donated to Habitat for Humanity by Valspar.

So, once again, here are the steps: If they use the app and they pick their perfect color match, all they have to do is share their color match and $1 is donated by Valspar to Habitat for Humanity.”

DM: “It’s super easy!”

CBS: How’s Finn doing? What kind of baby is he?

TS: “Finn’s amazing. He’s 6 months now.”

DM: “He’s growing so fast.”

TS: “He is. It’s so funny, day-by-day you see their personalities coming out more and more. He’s such like a little man – like a tough, little dude. With 3 brothers and sisters running around him all the time, he’s just trying to keep up with them.”

DM: “He wants to get in there so bad.”

TS: “Yes, he loves them. Liam and Stella always want to hold him and we put him on them and he’s just like all over them – kissing their faces and stuff. It’s so cute!”

Hollywood’s Best Halloween Costumes

Thursday, October 11th, 2012

With the Halloween season upon us, Celebrity Baby Scoop is getting into the spirit of dressing up.

And what better way to celebrate than by looking at our favorite celebrity kids in their spooktacular costumes! From Neil Patrick Harris’ festive family, to Alyson Hannigan’s pretty lil’ pumpkin, to Amy Adams and her cute kitten, let’s take a look at last year’s best Halloween costumes in Hollywood.

1. Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris shared an adorable picture with his twins – son Gideon and daughter Harper – last Halloween.

The family-of-four dressed up with a Peter Pan theme, with NPH going as Captain Hook, his partner David Burtka as Peter, and their twins as Smee and Tinkerbell. What a great idea!

2. Alyson Hannigan

Alyson Hannigan and husband Alexis Denisof love getting dressed up for Halloween. Last year, they dressed as a scarecrow couple alongside their sweet daughter Satyana who went as a pumpkin.

3. Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba and husband Cash Warren got festive with their two daughters, Honor and Haven, last Halloween night. Dressed in costumes, the family-of-four were seen trick-or-treating in their Pacific Palisades neighborhood.

Cash looked great as Superman, while Jess wore a cute cat outfit. But Honor stole the show in her Princess Ariel costume.

4. Britney Spears

Britney Spears and her family posed for a festive picture in London last Halloween. The pop superstar shared a photo while on tour, looking amazing in a femme fatale outfit alongside her sweet sons, her mother Lynne, and beau Jason Trawick.

Jayden James looked adorable as Batman while Sean Preston was too cute in his ninja outfit. Grandma Lynne sported a witch costume, while Jason opted for his everyday look. “Loved celebrating Halloween in Londontown with my family!” Brit tweeted.

5. Ali Larter

New mom Ali Larter and her baby boy Theodore were a perfect pair as they headed to a Halloween party last year at a friend’s house dressed as bumble bees. Cute as can bee!

6. Tori Spelling

Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott are parents to four kids. Last year, the proud mom took to Twitter to share a cute photo of their oldest kids, Liam and Stella, all decked out in their Halloween costumes.

“This year, Liam chose to be a Ninja Transformer and Stella is a Darling Witch,” wrote the mom-of-four.

7. Katherine Heigl

Grey’s Anatomy alum Katherine Heigl and husband Josh Kelley got into the Halloween spirit last year as they took their adorable daughter Naleigh to a party in Los Angeles.

While the couple looked great in their costumes, Naleigh melted our hearts in her pretty princess outfit.

8. Holly Robinson Peete

Weezy never looked better! Holly Robinson Peete dressed up in a Lil Wayne costume at the 18th Annual Dream Halloween event in Los Angeles last Halloween.

The mom-of-four got right into character, posing just like the rapper. Starting with his trademark dreadlocks right down to the teardrop tattoo on his face, Holly rocked it alongside her costumed sons Robinson and Roman.

9. Melissa Rycroft

Reality TV mama Melissa Rycroft and husband Tye Strickland posed for pics with their adorable baby girl Ava at the Dream Halloween benefit in Los Angeles last Halloween.

The family-of-three looked great dressed up as Fred, Wilma, and Pebbles Flintstone.

10. Amy Adams

Sweet baby Aviana was in costume for her trip to the pumpkin patch with her parents Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo last Halloween, pairing a leopard print suit and ears with a black tutu. What a cutie!
