Tori Spelling's latest book has sure dropped some juicy sound bites so far. First, it was some not-so-nice words about Katie Holmes's singing chops ("She can't sing for s**t.") and "plastic" persona. Then it was the admission that she made a nearly-leaked sex tape with husband Dean McDermott. ("I checked my angles and they were good so I allowed him to keep it.") And now, another little confession from Spelling It Like It Is has perked up everyone's ears: Apparently, she lied about how she lost all her baby weight.

And we're not just talking a little white lie. We're talking cover of Us Weekly, dressed in a bikini, swearing by the powers of "eating clean" and "daily swims." When, really, she spent approximately zero days in a pool ("I can't do much more than a doggy paddle") and her 45 pounds of pregnancy weight was actually lost on a little regimen she likes to call the "Just Keep Your F***ing Mouth Shut and Eat Air" diet. (We're guessing that's a Hollywood term.)

As her tell-all explains, Spelling had snagged the cover of the mag shortly after giving birth to her fourth child, Finn Davey, in August 2012. The editors wanted to highlight a post-baby weight loss success story, but Spelling's publicist advised that "not eating" isn't exactly the tale they wanted to tell their readers.

"My publicist had given me clear instructions about what to say about my weight loss," she writes. "Women didn't want to know that I had lost weight through dieting, not exercising. I didn't want to be the a**hole who didn't work for it. So I said I swam. It was sort of a bad choice."

Hmmm ... seems to us that Spelling just admitted precisely what she was trying to avoid in the first place.

What do you think of Tori's confession?
