'Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood' Recap: Tori the Gay Hoarder

Tori SpellingEach week, it’s a new project on Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, and this week, Tori’s project was her gays. After hosting a GLADD event with her chicken, Coco, and Lisa Vanderpump of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she was on a mission to film her “Gay Hoarders” spoof.

Like the Goldilocks she is, she filled her house with gay bears of every kind. Dean, who is now in cooking school, made no attempt to stop her, because he knew it was futile. When she gets an idea, she goes with it no matter what else she and her family have going on. She is out to conquer the world, one crazy endeavor after another. This one happened to be pretty funny.


The other crazy endeavor we’ve been watching her undertake for weeks now – concealing her third pregnancy from the world -- finally and blessedly came to an end as she announced it. After a great 12-week checkup with her ob/gyn and some ridiculously annoying fretting about making the announcement, she Tweeted the news, beat the media to the punch, and was pretty pleased with herself … for the most part.

There was the little matter of her having lied about it on national television to Kathie Lee and Hoda when they flat out asked her if she was pregnant a week prior. When they found out about her fib, they called her out on air. I believe a “stinky pie” was the term Kathie Lee used to describe her.

So Tori fretted some more and fussed over how to make things up to her friends and finally settled on some dog-shaped flowers, since she’s in their dog house, and an apology note. They read it on air and, of course, forgave her. Phew, now she can rest easy and enjoy her pregnancy, though previews show her doing anything but resting.

She’s ambitious, that’s for sure, but she also seems really grounded and in tune with her children. The final scene in which she and Dean were taking belly shots of her in the bedroom and talking to their kids, Liam and Stella, about the new baby was so real and so genuine. It’s scenes like that which make the show and her in general so likable even when some of her fretting seems frivolous.
