Tori Spelling says daughter Stella, 13, suffered ‘panic attacks’ due to bullying but is now ‘fierce’ in modeling debut

TORI Spelling's teenage daughter Stella has bounced back from middle school bullies as she launches her career in modeling.

The Beverly Hills 90210 star has been facing divorce speculations as she hasn't been seen with her husband Dean McDermott in "months."

Tori, 48, took to Instagram to share a sweet motivational post in honor of her daughter Stella, 13.

The child looked adorable as she modeled for the youth brand Petite N Pretty in a pink sweater and white tennis skirt.

The teen promoted the company's new makeup line as she posed and smiled alongside other professional child models.

Tori also shared some behind-the-scenes photos as her daughter had her hair and makeup done for the special debut.


"How Stella got her groove back… thx to @petitenpretty," she began her caption.

"Her 1st modeling shoot as a teen girl. Stella is an amazing human. Heart of gold & always leads w/kindness," the actress gushed.

"She’s innovative &creative and full of fire🔥. Which is why as a mom it was so painful to see a young woman’s fire dimmed bc of bullying.

"Her bullying started in 5th grade in Encino. Sadly, the boy that bullied her and other girls & boys wasn’t stopped. His parents were on the board. They gave the school a lot of $," the mother of five revealed.

"Sadly$ won out over the emotional care of the kids. I know i’ve talked bullying before. But, worse than that was the bullying she faced from her own principal," Tori continued.

The blonde then explained how Stella’s bullying led to "health issues" as she suffered from "headaches, stomachaches, panic attacks,& her asthma increased."

"Emotions can be pretty powerful & manifest into physical ailments. She missed alot of school due to this," she explained.

Tori added that her daughter's "drive & passion" for "baking, cooking, & crafting" was a huge factor in recovering from her bullying trauma.


Stella applied to be on Gorgon Ramsey's Master Chef, but then faced more bullying from her school "principal."

The principal told Tori that her daughter could only participate in the show if her "family leaves this school next year" despite the fact that all of her "kids had all been there since kindergarten."

"I agreed in tears so Stella could do Master Chef. Well, Stella WON!! I had never seen her confidence like I did that day! Her 🔥was back," she regaled.

"But, thx to @petitenpretty Stella got her powerful & fulfilling 'school' moment! Her confidence now soaring!

"Your fire 🔥 is back @stella_mcdermott08 You are a fierce female. So proud of U Buggy!" she closed.


Tori's proud mom post came amidst heavy speculation that she and her husband Dean, 54, are headed for divorce.

Earlier this week, The Sun exclusively revealed that the couple "fight nonstop about money and sleep in separate bedrooms."

A source disclosed that the actor who has been working in Canada for months "was not just happy to be going away- he was ready to be done with his marriage when he returned."

The father of five was greeted with “bills that had piled up. And a lot of those bills are in part because they have so many pets.” 

The animals have caused “a huge mess. It’s just another thing they fight about," the insider claimed.

“They don’t share a bedroom. They are sort of stuck. He financially can’t afford to really move out right now."
