Tori Spelling has landed an exciting new gig as host of an upcoming TLC reality show, and luckily even with three kids – and another on the way – she still has plenty of energy.
“This is actually the best pregnancy I”ve had so far out of all of them,” Spelling tells us. “Knock on wood. [I have] no morning sickness and I have energy. [It”s the] total opposite than other three.”
Spelling will host Craft Wars, premiering June 26, which will pit three everyday enthusiasts against each other in two rounds of crafting challenges.
“We are a very crafty family,” says Spelling, 38. “[My husband] Dean [McDermott] is super crafty! He”s the builder in our family. He”s amazing at building things and painting them, and then I decorate them. We are a great team.”
The kids, too, know their way around cutting and gluing, sticking and stamping. “Liam and Stella love to get creative,” says the actress. “We craft every weekend.”
As for the show, if it”s anything like what takes place at the Spelling-McDermott home, it should be fun as long as it doesn”t get out of hand.
“The worst that has happened is [my kids] got into the glitter,” she says of past crafting incidents.
The family”s successes have included plaster of Paris molds of the children”s feet; a slew of homemade cards; and a piece of reclaimed lumber that Tori stenciled with the words “Grow Old With Me” and gave to Dean for their fifth anniversary (where the traditional present is wood).
Dean”s creations have included a homemade easel with a canvas on which he made a pop-art painting of the word LOVE. “I told him he could totally compete on Craft Wars,” says Spelling. “I bet he”d win.”
