Celebrities fall in love, get married, and have children just like the rest of us.
However, when it comes to naming their children, stars do things a little differently.
Actually, VERY differently.

So not cool!
Tori Spelling is known to throw very spectacular birthday parties for her children, so it's no surprise that other celebrity parents flocked to join in on the festivities!
But apparently the visits from their celebrity friends has dried up because Tori and Dean McDermott abused their friendship!
By taping their kids' parties, and not even telling their celebrity friends what was going down beforehand!
Here's what a source said:
“It’s no secret that Tori throws her kids over the top birthday parties. She would invite celebrity friends, like Lisa Rinna, Brooke Burke-Charvet, Ali Landry — even RuPaul — except she wouldn’t tell them and other guests that they were filming. When they arrived, before entering their home, they would all be asked to sign release forms for the reality show. Few were given a heads up before the event and they would be blindsided upon arrival. Tori’s celebrity friends thought they were just going to a child’s party and didn’t expect to be on camera. It just didn’t feel like a toddler’s birthday party when there were so many cameras present. Naturally, guests couldn’t relax and be themselves.”
The parties were usually paid for by sponsors, and after Tori made her "friends" sign waiver forms to appear on her former reality show - they were also asked to pose with various sponsored products!
The source said:
“It was just tacky to ask a guest at the party, who happened to be a celebrity, to pose in a staged photo with various products. In the end, it’s no mystery why Tori’s parties have been very low on celebrity turnout! It absolutely impacted the decision for Oxygen to cancel her reality show. Viewers wanted to see Tori interacting with her celebrity friends and throwing these outlandish parties. If they were not attending, there was much less appeal.”
We hope Tori Spelling is better now after she was recently hospitalized for anxiety, and we hope she takes it easy for a little while.
It may be nice to be a celebrity, but not if it's making you sick!
Next time one of your kids has a birthday - make the party just a family affair!
We guarantee it'll be just as fun as a celebrity studded bash!
