While it’s unfair to classify B&Bs as “cluttered with needlepoint pillows, ceramic figurines and garden gnomes”, the opening of Chateau La Rue and Tori Spelling’s new reality show Tori & Dean: Inn Love is getting a lot of press. But will the media frenzy surrounding the show help or harm the Bed & Breakfast Industry’s image? Share your comments about the reality of the show in our bed & breakfast blog.
For those asking about the show, here’s what we know so far about Tori & Dean: Inn Love:
Tori & Dean: Inn Love premiers Tuesday, March 20th on the Oxygen Network at 10:30pmEST/9:30c. The reality show, about the couple becoming innkeepers, is filmed at a California B&B, Chateau La Rue, which was recently opened by Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott with the inheritance Tori received from her father. Oxygen’s website describes the show as: “Tori & Dean work on opening the hippest B&B in the universe, we watch the couple as they try to adjust to small town life, befriend their neighbors, renovate their new inn, learn to run a business, plan a gala grand opening and become first time parents… all the while continuing to pursue acting roles and develop their careers”.
Does anyone really think innkeeping on a daily basis is entertaining? Will the reality show Tori & Dean: Inn Love present running a bed & breakfast in a realistic light – that remains to be seen – and we welcome your comments…
