Tori Spelling Pisses Me Off

Tori Spelling has a new book out, I don’t know what it is, I think it might be a childrens book, but I saw it last Monday and forgot many of the details.

I forgot many of the details because, I don’t really care what she does. She is the first of the celebutards who became famous for being famous. Of course she did do a little acting and her father was pretty important in the industry but she isn’t overflowing with any substantial talent that I can see. In fact I was kinda surprised she knew how to write.

She, and her celebrity brethren, make it much more difficult for average Joe writers to get a contract let along get a book published. There are only so many book dollars out there and publishing houses want to get as much return on their investment as possible so they publish this kind of drivel because they know Tori can get some publicity. People like you and me have a much harder time getting publicity so the publishing world isn’t as quick to jump on our bandwagon.

Which is nothing new. I just needed to vent a little.

I’ve had a hell of a cold these last couple days. Yesterday I zoned in front of the tv watching bad B movie after bad B movie. My fever broke last night so today I am going to take a shower and actually put on real clothes.

I’m still here, and I miss all you guys. I was hesitant to put up a post because I feel bad that people are leaving comments on my site and I am not yet visiting sites. I want to but I have just over a week to finish my book and I don’t have time for distraction. I will be back soon though.

I want to thank everyone who has left comments of encouragement and support. They are so helpful. There have been many days when I have considered scrapping the whole thing and then I get a comment of support with a question about my experience and it makes me think maybe this project is worth all the trouble. Thank you all so much for hanging in there with me.

    I’m not the biggest fan of Tori but we got sent the book she wrote (it is a children’s book) by the publishing company. Anyway, my personal opinion of her aside, the book was cute. I read it to my 4yr old son and he liked it. I don’t know that I would say that publishing companies are eager to push books by celebrities over the average joe writer, this publishing company sends us a lot of books, many by authors we’ve never heard of (many of the books we’ve gotten have been by new writers) and thus my 4 kids (14-4) have become fans and I’m all about getting them to broaden their horizons when it comes to books.

    Sorry you haven’t been feeling well. I follow you on Twitter but I think this is the first time I’ve visited in awhile. I know it’s the first time I’ve commented. Hope you’re feeling yourself again soon!

    Sorry you don’t feel well. Being sick sucks.
    I hope you are full of enthusiasm to show the publishing world that you don’t have to be a famous person’s daughter to tell a good tale.

    I know exactly what you mean. My son has been extremely sick and was finally released yesterday after an 11-day stint in the hospital. I wasn’t blogging or commenting, but everyone was so supportive just the same. Hope you feel better soon, and when you do finish and are ready to get back to blogging, we’ll be here.

    Jen, I am so thrilled that you are almost to the finish line with your book! (But I actually kind of think Tori Spelling is kind of funny.)

    When you get published, I’ll do what I can from my corner of the blogosphere (tiny as it is) to get the word out about your book.

    Don’t worry about not blogging/commenting. You’ll be back when you get back and we’ll keep the light on for you. Feel better and get published!

    I first read “She is the first of the celebutards . . . ” as “celebuTURDS.” Correct either way.

    She pisses me off too. She may be a very nice person, but who cares about what she has to say? Plus she has a terrible boob job. Go away, Tori.

    And feel better, Jen.

      HA! We both mentioned her bad boob job!

      PS: if you don’t have something nice to say – come sit next to me!

    Tori who?! Guess I’ve seen her here or there, but never thought she was that much of anything. And now a book??? Pleeeez!

    Tori Spelling pisses me off, too. I saw her new kids’ book in B&N yesterday and rolled my eyes. I am assuming it’ll be a big hit — if it’s anything like her grown up books. 😉 Good luck w/ yours!

    Tori Spelling is a douche. I don’t like her. I like YOU, but not HER. Got that?!

    Sorry you haven’t been well, and I can’t wait to read your book!!!

    Don’t stop writing! I love getting your blog posts!!

    if you don’t have something nice to say please don’t say anything at all.

    Ummmmm, I, in all seriousness, have not a clue who Tori Spelling is.

  • Reply Warriormother September 27, 2010 at 2:17 pm

    Keep on keeping on!!!

    You inspired me to start blogging and I have had a lot of positive comments from mother’s who are going through the same issues as I am. Who know’s maybe you will inspire me to also write a book (although I am no writer). Either way, you are having a positive impact on other people’s lives and that says an awful lot so you just keep on keeping on!

    Keep on at it! Woo hoo!

    Message to Tori: eat something. Anything. A burger, fries, a fry, whatever — eat something!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Keep working on that book of yours! Glad to hear your fever broke. Hope you feel 100% better soon! And yes, Tori Spelling does NOT deserve all the accolades she gets just because her FATHER was a big deal. She’s is a talentless hack with a bad boob-job.

    I so often wonder what it is that these folks did to become “celebrities.” Except in this case, she was just born. Ack.

    I have no idea who she is, but I have a problem when people get famous for doing nothing of any value.

    Keep writing, and don’t worry about Tori or any of other lightweights out there. One year of your life has got to be more interesting than her entire vapid life. And I’m not buying her book, but I’ll buy yours.

    I hope you are feeling better! So close to your goal. Wow how great that must feel! xoxo!

    Tori who? Spelling? What self-respecting kid wants a book about spelling? I’d much rather spend my money on a book by you, Jen!

  • Reply Kelly Seal October 5, 2010 at 12:39 am

    I will buy your book. So will my friends. Don’t worry about celebutards, concentrate on writing.

  • Reply MandyP October 5, 2010 at 4:50 pm

    I think you’re so incredibly talented! I will DEFINITELY read your book! Can’t wait till it’s published!
