Last night episode 4 aired. It was all work and flattering prints as I tried ever so carefully to hide my rapidly growing bump, as we did our version of Tori and Dean Take New York. By the way, my interpretation of nesting is building an empire. I feel especially creative during pregnancy! Maybe knowing I soon would have another babe to provide for made me want to grow my businesses.

First, in LA, Mehran aka my gusband aka my partner and I met with crafting manufacturer Darice to discuss starting an Haute DIY jewelry line. I’m happy to say it’s currently in production and you can look for Styled by Tori Spelling in stores this coming spring! Next, we all flew to NYC. There we met with Tawil, our new manufacturer for Little Maven. We have some exciting news to announce very soon, so stand by! Then, we had a meeting with our new handbag manufacturer Tiger J. Our handbag line will launch on HSN this coming summer. And, we weren’t done yet!

Then, I delivered my party-planning book CelebraTori to my publisher. As I said at the time, I truly put all my blood, sweat, and tulle into that book! I can’t wait for it to be released on April 3. I feel so blessed to be able to make all my passions come to fruition. It’s a lot of hard work but I’m a believer that true hard work and perseverance pays off.

All work and no play makes Tori one tired pregger, but alas, Dean and I had some on-air press to do. That was honestly the last thing I wanted to do, cause I knew one question could unleash pregger-gate. I honestly thought I was so golden and in the clear until on the “Today” show Kathie Lee went for it and asked me point blank if I was pregnant. And, in return I point blank lied to her. I had no intention of doing that, but put on the spot I did it. I wasn’t going to announce my pregnancy on live TV, because I was forced too. Kathie Lee and I are friends, and I adore her. I know she was simply doing her job. After the fact, I secretly wanted to go whisper in her ear that I was indeed preggersville and apologize for freezing on the spot and fibbing. But instead I made a mental note to profusely apologize to her in my next memoir where I was sure to tell this very story, and then I quickly left the building.

On another note, it was great to hang out with my mom in NYC. We had an amazing time filled with lots of laughs and Candy. No pun intended. It was nice to finally have a little down time to be with my family.

Next week, a special episode of our wedding show “Tori&Dean: sTORIbook Weddings” airs. I get a tattoo for my honey and throw my dream wedding… Marie Antionette-themed! But, in two weeks on January 3, episode 5 airs, and it’s the episode we’ve been waiting for all season… The bump’s out of the bag! I officially announce my pregnancy and deal with the repercussions of hiding it! Stay tuned…
