“TRUE TORI”

After allowing cameras to document some of her darkest days, Tori Spelling once again opens up to the world for season two of True Tori.  Eight new episodes of True Tori will follow Tori in near real-time as she searches for honesty and happiness with Dean.

As Tori attempts to move on following one of the most devastating chapters of her life, she is now focused on healing herself and dealing head-on with the issues that have plagued her for years.  Cameras will capture this raw, unfiltered journey as she addresses everything from her family relationships to her business ventures, all while juggling four kids and salvaging her marriage.  While much of the chaos of last spring is seemingly behind her, there still exists a tremendous amount of work ahead for Tori as she struggles to find her true self.
