Biography

From the moment she was born with the proverbial silver spoon in her mouth, Victoria "Tori" Spelling seemingly lived a fantasy life all young girls could only dream of. After being raised in the largest home in Los Angeles - albeit in the shadow of her famous father, producer Aaron Spelling, whose first love was always his iconic résumé of TV hits - Spelling would enter the public consciousness as the virginal Donna Martin on the teen soap phenomenon, "Beverly Hills, 90210" (Fox, 1990-2000). However the young actress endured the high price of fame with charges of nepotism that she rarely lived down during her run on one of her father's biggest series. During the show's decade-long run, Spelling managed to step out of daddy's shadow as well as Donna Martin's by landing critically lauded roles in the indie films "The House of Yes" (1997) and "Trick" (1999), proving she could, indeed, act. Spelling would go on to star as herself in "So NoTORIous" (VH1, 2006- ), a semi-fictional show based on the often crazy life she had led. But the show's brief run was bittersweet for Spelling who not only found herself in a very public battle with her mother, Candy Spelling over her onscreen depiction, but also mourned from afar the loss of her beloved father who died during the show's first season. The passage of time, a new love and a successful reality TV series would go far toward healing Spelling's pain and reputation, bringing happiness to the ultimate Hollywood child who grew up under the watchful eye of the public.
