A New Children’s Clothing Line by Tori Spelling
Actress and reality TV star Tori Selling has become the latest celebrity to launch a children’s clothing line. According to reports published online she recently revealed the new line, Little Maven at Bloomingdale’s in Century City. The new brand will offer clothes for children up to the age of four. The prices range from $26 to $88. At the launch, Spelling with her daughter Stella in tow, signed autographs and chatted with fans.
Spelling has said that with Little Maven she wants to incorporate style and comfort, as well as the bright colors that usually appeal to children. As the daughter of the late TV mogul Aaron Spelling, she had to endure suggestions of nepotism when he helped her early in her career. Now she seems to be forging ahead on her own in the wake of his passing. Nicole Richie, the daughter of Lionel Richie has also come out of her father’s shadow to star in a reality series and launch her own line of maternity clothes for A Pea in a Pod.
Spelling was previously married to Charlie Shanian, but the marriage ended in April 2006. She has been married to actor Dean McDermott since May 2006. Aside from the aforementioned Stella who is one, they have two-year old son, Liam. Spelling’s reality show was originally titled, Tori & Dean: Inn Love for its first two seasons. This was changed to Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood for its third season. The first episode premiered in March 2007 on the Oxygen Network. Recently Spelling’s mother Candy Spelling, with whom she has a strained relationship, accused her and her husband Dean of using the children as “props’ in their show in an open letter to Tori which was posted on TMZ.
I wish Tori Spelling luck with her children’s clothing line, as well as her future career plans. Here’s hoping too that she and her mother will be able to reconcile. After all, the grandparent – grandchild relationship is important too.
