Actress Tori Spelling recently spoke to USA Today about several aspects of her life, which included her marriage, her weight problems, and her relationship with her estranged mother Candy Spelling. There also has been a bunch of chatter regarding her “skinny” appearance, and Tori claims that she’s not anorexic, but her weight loss is the result of swine flu, migraines, stomach problems, and nerve issues. Here’s what she had to say about it:

“I’ve never had a great stomach, but (being ill) just completely tore up my stomach and broke down my immune system, and I’ve basically just been a mess ever since, stomach-wise,” she says. “It’s about rebuilding my immune system.”

Tori, 37, also went on to admit that her marriage with Dean McDermott got rocky recently:

“We had problems that we never thought we would have,” she vaguely says. “We thought we had the perfect relationship. We realized we loved each other, but the communication had completely broken down and a lot of our issues, honestly, came from parenting.”

It has been well publicized that she and her mother Candy have not always seen eye-to-eye, but their relationship has apparently improved:

“We do talk on the phone. We do e-mail. We see each other for dinners. We do the normal stuff I think families do. There’s no strain,” she says. “We’re still building our relationship, of course, but she’s great with the kids (Stella and Liam, 3). She’s completely involved, which is all I ever wanted. We’re just moving forward.”

Overall, it’s good to see that Tori is doing okay despite all of the negative press that she has gone through concerning her weight and her relationships with her husband and mother.
