<p><span></span>On a family vacation at the Veranda resort in Turks and Caicos on May 16, <strong>Tori Spelling</strong> looked proud to strut her stuff in a sexy black bikini! The exclusive photos of Tori in the new issue of <em>Life & Style</em>--on newsstands now--show off Tori's now healthier-looking physique. Gone was the skeletal frame, estimated at 93 pounds, that shocked the world just weeks ago. "Last summer, she didn't want to be photographed in a bathing suit," an insider close to Tori tells <em>Life & Style</em>. "Now she's much happier with herself. She's still very thin, but she's not bony anymore."<br />
A second insider agrees: "She's gained about 5 or 6 pounds. It doesn't sound like a lot, but on someone as thin as Tori, it makes a world of difference." What finally prompted her to put on the much-needed weight? Her career and family life are getting better every day, says the second insider, which makes Tori want to eat.
During the trip to Turks and Caicos, Dean worked overtime to show Tori how devoted he is to her. "Dean was great during the vacation," the second insider says. "Things between them still aren't perfect, but they're getting better. It's clear that Dean's trying." His most touching gesture? Making special arrangements for Tori's favorite dessert -- red velvet cake -- to be brought to his wife on the beach in celebration of her 37th birthday on May 16.
