In a letter posted on her Web site, the 39-year-old former 90210 star wrote, “I would tell 21-year-old Tori that she’s strong, beautiful, smart, and can do anything that she sets her mind to. At 21, my biggest obstacle (well aside from a bad boyfriend) was myself. I lacked such self-confidence that I constantly stood in my own way. Although I don’t believe in regrets and think every moment makes us the women and moms we ultimately become, it would be nice to give this advice!”
The boyfriend she’s referring to is likely Nick Savalas, who was emotionally and verbally abusive to Spelling. She previously told Entertainment Weekly, “He was never physically abusive, but he was verbally abusive, telling me 10 times a day how ugly I was,” she revealed.
