Another Celebrity Mom tries to Make Rich

Celebrity families sure don’t operate as normal families do. Not only must you worry about every little thing you do ending up in a tell-all book but grandparents also don’t worry about spending time with their grandkids going to the park or baking cookies. Rather, that’s not what they’ll miss should they lose out on time with their grandkids.

Candy Spelling, mother of Tori Spelling and wife of the late Aaron Spelling, has one of those tell-all books and more than that, she wants to tell her story of how her husband died, her daughter hates her, and how she’s going to live out the rest of her life a lonesome grandmother, to just about anyone who will listen. I’m always a little skeptical of celebrity parents that try to make money off of their kid’s accomplishments but this one is just extra-pathetic. Candy has done her own mud-slinging and name calling towards her daughter and has done things, such as publicly voicing her disapproval of Tori’s husband, Dean McDermott, time and time again. I actually don’t blame Tori for not wanting anyone in her family in that environment. From People,

“Candy Spelling is starting a new chapter in her life, which includes writing a frank memoir called Stories From Candyland – and selling the $150 million, 56,000-square-foot mansion where she’s lived since 1991.

Spelling, whose book is due out March 31, plans to move from her five-acre French Chateau-style mansion into a $47 million condo with 17,000 square feet; the same footage as her current attic. But she tells PEOPLE that she’d never have put Spelling Manor on the market if she thought she’d reconcile with her estranged daughter Tori, her husband Dean, and their two children, Liam and Stella.

“I don’t see Tori and Dean anymore,” the 63-year-old grandmother tells PEOPLE. “I used to see Liam, but no longer. And I’ve never met Stella.”

Despite the family’s fracturing, Spelling says: “If I had any hope that I would have a relationship with my grandchildren I would never sell this house. I’ve fantasized for years about a wonderful playhouse on the grounds for children.”

Although she spent four years planning the home before she moved in, she’s selling it now because, “It’s just me in this big house,” explains Spelling.

“Someday my grandchildren will know who I am because of the trust funds I’ve set up, but I would like to be part of their lives now,” says Spelling. “I would have loved to have built that playhouse for them.”

I honestly can’t believe that she goes on and on about this stupid playhouse and then throws in at the end that she wants them to know who she is. And again, with celebrity families, you know who people are by the money they give you. Nice. I have less sympathy or respect for Candy Spelling than I do for Lynne Spears, and that’s saying something.
