1st photos from Tori Spelling’s True Tori reality series on Lifetime

True Tori Spelling crying

Filming began on Tori Spelling’s new Lifetime reality series True Tori less than two weeks ago and the network has already released the first official photos featuring Tori, her husband Dean McDermott and her children: Liam Aaron, Finn Davey, Stella Doreen and Hattie Margaret.

It seems obvious from the photos that the show is going to be very emotional as it documents Tori and Dean struggling to keep their marriage intact amid very public cheating allegations. “Tori has made the courageous decision to allow the audience to witness the most difficult and unpredictable period in her life,” it says in the network’s description of the show. “Intimate, raw, emotional and completely real, Tori will tell her story for the first time as it should be told – by her.”

Amazingly, True Tori is set to premiere on April 22 — less than three weeks after filming began. The fast-tracking of the show is an example of what appears to be a new trend in reality television in which producers try to dramatically cut down the time between filming and airing — due largely to the proliferation of instantaneous social media. (Who wants to watch that wedding when you already saw tons of photos and videos three months ago?)

I don’t know how you feel about it, but I think I will be a big fan of the shift — not only because I often blog about the lives of reality stars and I’m even more susceptible to “this is old news” fatigue than most, but also because less time means less editing and more reality. Theoretically anyway. :)

Either way, I’m excited to watch Tori’s dramatic story unfold almost in real time starting April 22!

      Ya… Her face is too gaunt for her fillers. She should really think about gaining some weight.

      • Erica

    I love her I have since 90210 days and I love her and Dean together hope they can successfully work things out a marriage isn’t supposed to be easy it is supposed to be hard and challenging but also rewarding and when you have issues you work them out you don’t run and scream divorce that’s what’s wrong with this world one little issue in all the world going to end Let’s divorce. I’ve been married 11 years it has been good it has been bad it has been ugly it has been pretty but all in all it is worth it and I have a life partner that will stick with me through thick and thin people give up too easy

    Tori is hard on the eyes!!!!!!!!!

    She looks incredibly sad and unhappy. Although I feel awful that she’s got 4 young children with a man who can’t keep his d*ck in his pants, she probably should have seen this coming… if they’ll do it WITH you, they’ll do it TO you!

    Oh what’s that she’s whipping up in the kitchen? Is that some crow?

  • Stephanie

    I don’t want to watch the problems in their marriage, every marriage has problems. What is with this girl, she can’t survive without being on TV. Doesn’t sound very entertaining

      it’s about money! She needs it, so she goes on TV to get it, pretty simple!

  • Pat Brown

    Tori looks horrible in these pictures, sad and worn out looking, leave that jerk already! Oh that’s right, this train wreck can still bring in some much needed cash, how silly of me!

      She was never never ever ever (did I mention never?) cute at all …. Shannon Doherty with lop sided eyes, Garth looked like a bunny rabbit…all those girls turned out Fugly
