Tori Spelling ready 'to make people laugh more’

Tori Spelling regrets the fact that she’s put acting on the backburner in recent years. At an event celebrating the release of her new book, “CelebraTORI,” she told CNN, "I'm ready to make people laugh more."

Spelling has worn many hats in her career, which has encompassed the roles of actress, producer, reality show star, children’s clothing designer, jewelry designer and creator of a line of crafts, among others.

Is there a career goal Spelling has yet to conquer?

"Is Martha Stewart still running her empire?” the 38-year-old joked. "Gosh, there's a lot I want to do. I'd love to do a maternity line.”

Spelling is four months pregnant with her fourth child, and she told us, “I have so many ideas for dresses. Women waste money on maternity dresses so I'd love to create transitional dresses that can be worn before, during and after pregnancy."

Spelling is due in September, and she found out she was pregnant while on a visit to the ER for a migraine she couldn’t get under control. She underwent a pregnancy test as per hospital policy, even though she insisted there was no way she could be pregnant.

"So I peed in a cup,” said Spelling. “Guess what the news was?"

Spelling gushed over baby Hattie, who joined 5-year-old Liam and 3-year-old Stella back in October.

“She’s amazing," the actress said. “She's literally the happiest baby. We live in constant chaos, constantly moving around, working, traveling, all our pets and farm animals are loud. Hattie's in such good spirits. Anyone she sees, she laughs; she has the best smile, and she’s super engaging and has the most amazing eyes. Can you tell I'm in love with her? The kids just dote on her, which is so nice to see."

As for her book, "CelebraTORI," Spelling explained that she's "obsessed with DIY projects, party planning and crafting, so I really wanted to do a book that showed people that party planning is not a daunting experience. Everyone can do it, and I give them the best approach to attacking a party with five easy steps whether it's a night out, a night in, or a party for 100 people. It's all the same approach."

Her favorite party that she’s ever thrown for herself was her 30th birthday bash – a 1980s-inspired prom party.

“I'm not a big theme person,” she noted. “I hate the word ‘theme’; I always call it a concept and stick with a color palette and concept. But for milestone birthdays, I think you have free reign to go as kitschy and cheesy and theme-y as you want. So that's what I did, I had an '80s prom party and it was so fun and over the top."

When she’s not planning parties or running her small empire, Spelling relishes family time, and shared a funny anecdote about Liam, who husband Dean McDermott may be giving a Birds and the Bees talking to sooner than anticipated.

"The other day, Liam walked into the room while Dean and I were watching TV,” said Spelling. “Dean had his arm around me and Liam said, 'Ugh, I don't wanna see that!’ “

“And Dean goes, 'What, Buddy? I'm cuddling with Mom. What do you think I'm doing?'

“And Liam says, ‘You know! What adults do and get on top of each other,'" she recalled. "And we both looked at each other and were like, ‘does that mean The Talk is coming soon?'"

Sounds like it - and fans of Spelling might get to see it happen, as the family stars in the Oxygen reality show, "Home Sweet Hollywood."

    if she stop playing with her face and body, and change her makeup and hair style , the red lipstick is not for her as she has big long face and blonde hair too. and if she stops the clown look is better as her smile is terribly fake and scary. be normal.

    Tori "regrets putting her acting career on hold?" What acting career? She never had one outside of 90210. Tori is so desperate to have a career, thus all of her "projects" which she calls her "empire." Let's see: The Bed and Breakfast they ran fell a part, her children's clothing line went bankrupt, her wedding show was cancelled, her unloading of flea market crap in a store called Inventori is not doing well. Hardly an empire!
    She should focus on being a mother, because that kid Liam is a brat! He has been exposed to and says the most inappropriate stuff for a kid his age. She is not funny...she is classless!

    To those who think Tori is ugly: blame her parents. They're the ones who created her.
