Most people don’t have the resources to throw a lavish party Tori Spelling style, but the reality star is out to change that.
Spelling has just inked a two-book deal with Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. The first book, tentatively titled CelebraTORI, will show readers how to throw a “fabulous” but “affordable” shindig, from kids’ birthday parties to a New Year s Eve bash to a dinner party, and is set for publication in October 2011.
The second (untitled) book will be another memoir about her life as a wife, mom and reality star and is scheduled for publication in Summer 2012.
