She has a new best selling book and a a hit show. And now she’s tackling morning TV.

Tori Spelling is guest hosting Today with Kathie Lee Gifford, while Hoda is out on vacation – from July 20 through Wednesday, July 22.

On today’s episode, Tori and Kathie talked about poop at the beach and Chelsea Handler’s hate. Tori said that she’s not sure why Handler hates her, but added “If I’m worthy of being talked about, then maybe I’m worthy to watch on TV.” In true Gifford form, Kathie suggested that the actress has such detractors because of “jealousy.” (The E! star has often made jokes at the expense of the ’90210′ star)
