Are you a donut person or a doughnut person?? I personally have an aversion to “doughnut” but after some research I discovered that “doughnut” is the correct spelling and “donut” is kind of like the nickname. I think the two of us are close enough that we passed the point of being able to go by nicknames long ago. So donut it is!
I had the pleasure of meeting Tori Spelling. Since her real name is Victoria and she introduced herself as Tori, we have reached the nickname stage too! The girls have become huge Tori Spelling fans now because of her furry silky chicken and her pig. They would leave me and move in with her in a heartbeat. She’s a complete doll by the way.
Most likable star I’ve ever met.
Mehran – Tori’s BFF.
Megan and Taylor with Jo Pearson of Craft Wars and her zebra car. Notice her leopard?? I’m sure she did that just for me….
