After learning she was pregnant with her second child, Tori Spelling visited a voodoo high priestess, the actress writes in her new book, Mommywood, due for release April 14.
RadarOnline.com has exclusive sneek peak details, including that Tori has previously visited the priestess to have a curse removed, she says. She made her second visit to see if the curse had come back, she reveals in the book.
Tori feared the second baby would be a girl and that would trigger her to repeat the bad parenting her mother Candy had imposed on her, she felt. She describes the dynamic with her mother as "intense and destructive."
The priestess, known as "Mama Lola" told her the baby would be a boy, which greatly relieved Tori. Not for long though. A sonogram revealed the baby was a girl and Tori writes that she created a list of grievances that she had toward her parents and determined she and husband Dean would never make these mistakes.
Tori also writes candidly about irrational fears she battles, including that a sniper may open fire on her as she walks across a parking lot and a plane would crash if she wasn't wearing a certain necklace or carrying a particular stuffed animal.
She was also convinced she was going to die in childbirth with their second baby. 'I'll admit that it wasn't completely rational,' she writes.
She sheds more light on the dynamic with her mother, who has never seen Tori's kids, and says she feels that her deceased father is still with her. Still the book makes clear that a reconciliation with her mother Candy is not going to happen any time soon.
