Tori and Dean: Inn Love
The show, Tori and Dean: Inn Love, is (supposedly) a reality show about Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott purchasing and operating a bed and breakfast. Located in Temecula, California, they renamed an existing inn, The Oak Creek Manor, which will now be known as Chateau La Rue. The name is taken from Tori's dog's name, Mimi La Rue. Lucky she didn't name her dog Scruffy.
Its first show is scheduled for this evening on Oxygen TV, aka Oh!, at 10:30 pm eastern time. Unfortunately, their largest audience (innkeepers) are fast asleep by that time. Why not record it or Tivo it? Well, if other innkeepers are like us, they can only do that if the children are at home as they are the only ones who understand those new fangled gadgets.
So the American viewing public is about to see which is more challenging, being stranded on a deserted island without fire and water like my favorite reality show Survivor, or owning and operating a bed and breakfast.
This show could do great things for our business. Many people still believe that a Bed and Breakfast is nothing more than a person's home that has a spare bedroom. While those situations continue to exist, today's typical Bed and Breakfast is far from that. Hopefully, this show will portray what our industry is all about in "reality."
Well Tori and Dean, if you don't already know it, at The Maine Stay Inn, "we have the nicest guests."
