A friend of mine in LA has met Tori (and Dean) on numerous occasions and says they both are fun and nice and very down-to-earth. Nothing pretentious about Tori at all, which may not have been the case considering the mega rich lifestyle she grew up in. From what I know, she's not hurting for $$$ at all but has said ppl tend to think she has hundreds of millions because of who her father was. She doesn't have that much but she's not broke. I guess she really is enjoying being a mom and doesn't just shove her kids off on nannies - like the way she said she was brought up. That's cool in my book. I like her. I hope her show is a success. Don't know anything about the book, tho I thought her and her mom reconciled after she had Liam.
