Tori Spelling has always been paparazzi friendly. The line between the star and the mommy rarely was crossed by the press as the star seems to handle to job very well. However, all that changed when Star Magazine put the celebrity and her family on the cover implying there was a divorce pending. As Spelling’s 6-year-old found the story first it appeared the damage was done and freaked the child out especially because the family was seen on the front cover. Blasting the magazine on Friday with a portion of her blog posted on the Today Show site, it appears the children of the stars are being pursued without the right to privacy.
“I wonder if any of those writers have children? How would they feel if their child had to read something so hurtful and confusing?” wrote Tori Spelling about the idea of exploiting her children in a negative news story.
Tori Spelling isn't the only star who is fighting for the right of privacy when it comes to raising a family. Katie Holmes, Halle Berry, Angelina Jolie, Julia Roberts and other stars have families that sometimes land on the cover of tabloids without permission. It's a continuous battle that fuels the question if the children are off limits when they stand next to their famous parents.
Celebrities are pushing back on the idea that pictures and stories of their children can be published without permission. Tori Spelling definitely put a spotlight on an issue that has blossomed in the past year. Asking people to respect her family instead of exploiting it, there seems to be a genuine concern that the paparazzi has gone too far.
