Tori suckers NutriSytem with pregnant pause?

tori.jpgTMZ wondered February 20 whether Tori Spelling’s 2nd pregnancy was a “ploy” to get a repeat contract from NutriSystem:

Tori Spelling probably made a ton of money from NutriSystem. After all, what a great ad – someone famous losing her baby weight.
So what does Tori do? She gets knocked up again and gains it all back. We’re thinkin’ it’s one of the great ploys of 2008.
Here’s the scenario. Tori has the kid and then resigns with NutriSystem, which pays her even more money to advertise how women with two kids can dump the weight.
We’re guessing Tori could end up in a mansion again, with her own money and more kids than Mia Farrow….


The 34-year-old, married to actor Dean McDermott, delivered Liam Aaron on March 13, 2007.
She then lost 35-40# (reports differ) of baby fat on NutriSystem, going on to become a company spokesperson. According to People magazine, Spelling shot a new ad campaign in November that began appearing in women’s magazines in December.

Back to TMZ. Spelling announced in the October 1 edition of Ok! magazine she wanted to have kids close together. According to my pregnancy wheel, October was the month she conceived. Unless she deliberately withheld info from NutriSystem, the company knew in November she was pregnant again, or Spelling herself did not yet know.
TMZ may be just a gossip rag, but it examples how the calloused pop culture views children. It thinks having children close together or having a big family is abnormal, and no one would do it on purpose without an external, self-serving reason, in this case a get-richer-quicker scheme.

  1. While I agree with the point of this article, as far as the pop culture’s attitude toward children and pregnancy, does anyone really CARE one way or the other, about Tori Spelling or any of the OTHER trashy celebrities?
    WHEN is this infatuation with Holly-weirdo’s going to end ??????

  2. I wonder what is confusing the media more – That she is having two kids that close together or that she was married before having these kids?
    ;-)
    Couldn’t help it.

  3. Valerie: “USED to be called jokers” ???
    As far as I’m concerned, they’re STILL a joke, and always will be.
    It’s a pathetic commentary on our society that these fools get the media attention they do. I wouldn’t walk into the next room to see any of them.

  4. Oh Man! I could have made millions! My first two were 16 months apart, 4 and 5 were 17 months, and 5 and 6, were 16 months! I guess all I needed was a boob job and peroxide!

  5. Both of which are easily gotten, Kristen !
    That’s all it takes anymore.
    (It also helps to have multiple ex-sposes, a drug problem, and the required rap sheet…and then, BINGO ! You’re a STAR !!!)

  6. I think this says less about what Hollywood thinks about children, and more about what they think of Tori Spelling….

  7. I just love how TMZ thinks she’s just having kids for NutriSystem $$$’s. Heaven forbid a hollywood star would actually WANT to have more than one child. Has TMZ not been paying attention lately? How pathetic and what a mean assumption to make about Tori.

  9. How can someone be that thin and pregnant? I can imagine I would be one of those women who just blow up like a balloon.

    ……………………………
    I weighed 104# when I got pregnant with my 1st. Topped out at 132# at 9 months. Started at 112# with the 2nd and topped out at 145#.
    I fail to see why it is necessary to gain unneeded poundage.

    Sally, I think that if the poundage is indeed “unneeded,” then it being not necessary pretty much follows, from the get-go. ; )

    LOL! I’ve known some women that have used pregnancy as an excuse to gorge themselves ‘for the baby’ don’t ya know!

  12. Sally, I was one of those girls. It’s easy to fall for that when you’ve never had a child and don’t know what to think.
    I was told that I should gain as much as possible, for the baby – by my doctors, by my pregnancy books, etc. I ended up gaining 60 pounds and I learned the hard way that I should have only gained about 25. My doctors had encouraged me to gain weight,and I did accordingly.
    Plus, it was really easy as I had some major cravings for milk when I was pregnant with the first!
    Then, I lost the weight (over a 2 year period), had another baby with whom I only gained 25 pounds, and the third, it was just the same way.
    This is me 8 months preggy with my third:


    I was able to fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes within a month after he was born. I was so proud of myself, lol

  13. eek that turned out big. I’m going to reduce the size..

    LOL! Some double meaning there?

    Sally, I saw a funny line from a guy whose wife had just given birth. He’d gained some poundage too and said it was his “baby weight.”
