Letters: Spelling needs less air time and more introspection

Re: ‘The writing on the wall’ (Metro, April 24)

I absolutely disagree with letter writer Charles Ramirez when he infers that the TV show is Tori Spelling’s outlet for her pain and grief. Furthermore, he states that she shouldn’t suffer in silence like the rest of us do because we have no outlet for our issues. Ms. Spelling has been selling the story of her life since the beginning of her marriage, which evolved from a torrid affair. This seems to be her sole means of making a living. The rest of us regular folks unburden ourselves to priests, family members, friends, heck, even total strangers sometimes. Some pay good money to lay on a psychologist’s couch for an hour just to get it all off their chests, but it is all done in PRIVATE. Tori Spelling should give that a try for a change and spare us the lurid details of her life. Better yet, get a job and be a great example for those four children! When you are a mother, there is no room for pride and shame. Downsize, get a job and take care of your children! She is not the first nor will she be the last woman on Earth who enticed a man away from his wife and children thinking her lady box drips with honey only to have the man repeat the pattern. You reap what you sow and Tori, you are reaping quite a harvest!

Re: ‘The writing on the wall’ (Metro, April 24) I don’t see letter writer Madeline Jones-Jenkins can talk about other people’s karma when she sounds like a, bitter, angry person herself — calling Tori Spelling “ugly, no talent” is so harsh. I, myself, don’t understand why Tori wants to deal with a personal issue like that in public, but that’s why I don’t watch the show.
