“Too bad I didn’t know about getting roots and eyebrows done back then!” says Spelling, 37, with Ryan Ozar, her first boyfriend.

Aside from the ID crisis, Tori says life with her parents is good. Living at home cramps neither her style nor her 1.5-year relationship with boyfriend Ryan Ozar, a USC sophomore. ”My parents give me a lot of space because they don’t want me to leave,” says Spelling. ”They luuuv Ryan, and I don’t come home at 5 a.m. or anything.” Even when the couple double-dated with Marky Mark and 90210 costar Shannen Doherty, Tori had to wake up early to get to the set. This season her character has earned more airtime as Spelling’s acting has improved; Donna has a newfound artistic talent and a deepening relationship with her boyfriend (”We decide whether or not to do it,” Spelling says).
