The actress appeared to be in good spirits and smartly donned a bathing suit for the big moment. Spelling’s two older children, Liam and Stella, were father Dean McDermott’s helpers and poured a giant orange tub of freezing cold water on the blonde.

After the initial shock, Spelling nominated her mother to take the challenge herself. The former Beverly Hills, 90120 star’s mother has yet to respond.

“My friends Bill & Scout (aka The Guncles) nominated me to take the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money and awareness for ALS,” she explained on her website. “It was freezing cold but totally worth it!”

Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth reunite for new show

Tori Spelling can crack Jennie Garth up.

When thinking of an upcoming scene from their new ABC Family sitcom, “Mystery Girls,” now airing Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. ET, Garth giggles at the memory of Spelling going for it, making a funny face and using a strange voice.

That’s just one reason the two like to work together.

“I feel safe doing some, like, goofy, crazy face and voice because it’s my friend. I know she’s gonna be there to support my efforts,” explained Spelling in a recent interview.

“She knows I love it,” added Garth, who readily admits she’s the first to break character in a scene.

Unless you skipped the 1990s, you know they were co-stars on one of the most popular TV shows of that era, “Beverly Hills, 90210,” about teens living in the exclusive Southern California zip code.

It went off the air after 10 seasons in 2000 but Spelling and Garth have remained friends. They even briefly reprised their roles for the CW’s “90210″ reboot. Spelling guest starred on a couple of episodes. Garth appeared on the first two seasons.

They never expected to work together full-time again but Spelling came up for the premise and it all fell into place.

On “Mystery Girls,” Garth and Spelling play former co-stars of a hit 90s detective TV show of the same name. They’ve gone their separate ways, until a crime occurs, and the witness will only talk to them. From this, they end up opening a detective agency.

Both actresses also serve as executive producers. They have their hand in the show’s look, wardrobe and “every little thing,” said Spelling.

“Our personalities are (to be) micro-managers. We can’t delegate that much but we’re learning,” she said.

The two say they rarely disagree on decisions but Garth will defer to Spelling sometimes “because it was her idea.”

They chose to do a sitcom because, “it’s more fun than doing a drama,” said Garth. “The schedule, the hours. We both have a lot of kids so it’s like banker’s hours compared to doing an episodic show like an hour-long drama or something.”

For Spelling, having a sitcom was a career goal.

“I did the best I could on ’90210.’ Like I tried to make Donna funny. I was in a drama. Everyone else was great at drama but I was like, ‘I think I’m better at comedy so how can I interject comedy here and there?’ and so Donna was kind of goofy and I did things here and there but I was always, this is harder for me. I wish I could do comedy.”

The gig also comes at a good time for Spelling’s personal life. Her recent marriage struggles with actor Dean McDermott have been documented both in the press and on the Lifetime docu-series, “True Tori.” On that, cameras followed Spelling in the aftermath of learning her husband had an affair and he subsequently went to rehab.

Spelling says it’s undecided whether there will be more “True Tori.”

“It was something that I needed to do. … I don’t know what the future holds,” she said.

With all the rumors swirling around her personal life, she felt it was best to document what was happening on camera: “It was the best vehicle to tell my truth.” Still, putting her personal problems on display can seem strange to some.

To that Spelling says, “It was something I needed to do so don’t feel bad.”

Dean McDermott Reveals “True Tori” Backlash

To say that Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott’s marriage has been rocky as of late is a bit of an understatement. In a new interview, even Dean admits that he expected Tori to leave him!

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott‘s marriage basically imploded when it was revealed that Dean had cheated on Tori while he was filming in Canada at the tail-end of 2013. True Tori was a revealing — even too revealing — look at their marriage in the aftermath, and what we saw was not good. In a new interview, Dean admits that he expected Tori to divorce him once the scandal broke! Read on for more on the state of Tori and Dean’s marriage post-scandal, and post-True Tori! (It’s hard to say which was more damaging to their relationship.)

Dean McDermott Surprised Tori Spelling Didn’t Divorce Him After Cheating Scandal

“I wake up every morning and I’m just so blessed that she’s in my life still,” Dean told Giuliana Rancic on E! News “[Tori]‘s such a strong lady, and when this happened I was like, ‘Why don’t you just leave me?’”

Trust us – everyone was asking that question. However, with four kids, it’s understandable that Tori wanted to fight to try and keep the marriage alive.

“And she’s like, ‘Well, I love you, I can’t just turn that off,’” Dean added. “‘I’m mad at you, I’m really upset, I’m really hurt — but I love you. That just doesn’t go away.’

“We’re trying to show people that if that love is still there, love can conquer all and love does conquer all. It’s just going to take a lot of work and a lot of tears and a lot of pain.”
Dean McDermott: ‘Things Are Great’ Between Tori & I

“Things are great,” Dean revealed to Giuliana earlier in their interview. “Our relationship is stronger than it’s ever been and we’re working very hard on that. I’m working very hard on myself — my sobriety, it means everything to me, becoming the dad and the husband that I’ve always wanted to be and that they deserve… I’m changing my life for the good.”

Also worth noting is the fact that Dean looked a lot healthier than we’ve seen him recently. During True Tori‘s filming (and even prior to that) he had certainly been looking like the drink had been taking its toll; often red-faced and puffy, it was clear that his health was getting away from him as much as his relationship was.

And, its not really over yet because… Next week see the True Tori reunion show! See where we are right now and what’s happening. My friend and fellow mom Brooke Anderson interviews me and Dean and some special guests! Your viewer questions are answered, too. You can catch the reunion episode next Tuesday at 10pm EST on Lifetime.
