The daughter of the late TV mogul Aaron Spelling says the book, due out in April 2008, won't be a "tell-all."
"I feel there's a nasty connotation when you say 'tell-all'," she said in an interview with USA Today. "That is not what I plan to do. It's not about calling people out or telling negative stories about people. It's how I see things."
Spelling has seen a lot of things in her life, beginning with a privileged childhood as the daughter of one of the wealthiest men in Hollywood.
She was a tabloid favorite during the height of the show's popularity, partying with other young stars. She's been married twice and is currently expecting a her first child.
This year she was back in the tabloid headlines again because of her father's death and friction with her mother.
Spelling says she plans to write about her plastic surgery (she'll finally open up), her romantic relationships (including one with an abusive lover), her inheritance (she didn't get much, but she's handling it), and her days hanging out in the club scene (she went sans panties while Britney was still wearing Carters).
Having learned the art of storytelling from her father, Spelling feels she has the skills she needs to write a great book.
"I think I'm a really good storyteller, so why not tell my stories in a humorous, self-deprecating book?"
