Tori Spelling's Favorite Mom Moments

By Paulette Cohn

America's fascination with Tori Spelling continues as the former "Beverly Hills, 90210" star allows the reality TV cameras to follow her, husband Dean McDermott, son Liam, 2, and daughter Stella, 1, as they go about their every day lives.

The Oxygen series, "Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood," is now in its fifth season, and Tori tells JustMommies.com that she agreed to make her life an open book to set the record straight, after so much misinformation about her appeared in the press.

But "Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood" isn't all that the 36-year-old actress has on her plate. She is also the author of her second best-selling book, Mommywood, designs and markets her own line of fashion jewelry on HSN -- and still finds time to make her own baby food for Stella.

Now JustMommies.com talks to this manages-it-all mama to find out how she does it!

How do you balance your very busy work life with the demands of family: a new baby and a toddler, etc.

Tori Spelling: It's hard to find that balance because, on one hand, I really do want to be a hands-on, full-time, stay-at-home mom, but then there's the other part of me that loves business. I love being creative. I love creating things. I love entertaining people. So, for me, that is sort of ongoing. We try to find the happy balance of doing it all and making myself happy and everyone else happy at the same time. 

A hands-on dad is really helpful.  Dean is more than hands-on. He is unbelievable so that really helps. But the best thing for us is that we get to work together. So we get to take our babies to work every day, which is really helpful.
