Tori Spelling has a new reality competition show in the works, and it's based upon about her love of crafting. We're not just talking about redoing a piece of furniture or knitting a scarf here: She gets really weird with her hobby, as evidenced by this little factoid about her pet chicken that she revealed in a Lucky Magazine Q&A.
Coco (Chanel of course) is a silkie bantam chicken. She is white and fluffy and is often mistaken for a poodle! I call her a pocket chicken because she loves to be held and go places with me. They know her by name at our local Michael's craft store. What? A chicken can't craft too? I make her outfits to mimic my vintage dresses. She also has little capelets! I turn vintage brooches into fascinators for her. Right now I'm knitting her a chicken poncho for those cool summer nights.That's right, a chicken poncho. If you want to tune in and learn more, Craft Wars premiers tonight on TLC.
