Having four small kids in the house Tori Spelling definitely has a full plate. She and husband Dean McDermott have their sons Liam, 7, and Finn, 2, and daughters Hattie, 3, and Stella, 6, and the actress and reality star admitted that she has no privacy.
“With four little ones everyone is always sick, and being mom, I never take time for myself until I get [sic] so hard that I end up in the hospital like I did,” she told Us Weekly at the 4th Annual Santa’s Secret Workshop. Spelling was hospitalized in October for pneumonia so it appears that maybe she’s learned from that scare.
“Now that was a wake up call to know that when mom is down, the ship goes down. So I have to basically make sure that I take time for myself every now and then to make sure I’m healthy so I can be there for them… I am never by myself. I don’t even think I’ve peed alone in the last eight years. I’m not kidding. I’m trying to learn. That’s something I’m working on. That will be my New Year’s resolution. It’s been hard, but as they get a little bit older, I’m feeling more comfortable doing it. It’s just something I need to make a priority for all of our happiness. I want to take a little time to do things with my friends.”
Spelling has also been publicly dealing with marital challenges after claims that McDermott cheated on her. And, although the drama has been playing out on Spelling’s reality show, True Tori, the 41-year-old is still open to talking about the difficulties. “On one hand it’s not easy, on the other hand it’s made me realize I’m not the only one that goes through these types of problems,” she said. “There’s women everywhere that struggle with things and issues, families and marriages. I think when things happen within a marriage you kind of feel isolated and people have been very supportive within the last year.”
The star also talked about her holiday plans this year. “The kids make salt dough ornaments,” Spelling revealed. “It’s dough and salt, and you bake it and let them dry. It turns out hard then you paint them and hang them. Each year they add to their collection, so I’m hoping by the time they’re adults and married they’ll have a big box of annoying salt dough ornaments that their spouse will be like, ‘Do we really have to put these tacky things on the tree?’ and they’ll be like, ‘Yeah my mom made us make them.’”
