Candy Spelling Rages at her Daughter Through TMZ

Candy Spelling makes me nauseous. Tori Spelling also used to turn my stomach some but, with the recent plays her mother has made in the media, I tend to feel bad for Tori and find myself rooting for her a tiny bit. In the past Candy has gone and talked to themedia about how the stress that Tori placed on her dad was what killed him in the end. And that’s bad, and maybe even worse than what she’s done this time, but now she’s gone to another media outlet to hurl some more insults towards her daughter.

Candy wrote an email message to TMZ and it was actually a “message” to “middle-aged reality show stars (like my daughter.)” The whole thing was a rant about how she hasn’t met her granddaughter and she was insulted that she would be invited to do so for the first time on national television. I kind of see her point but the whole thing would be much more effective if she had kept her thoughts to herself. From TMZ,

“Candy Spelling — the mother famously at war with her daughter — has taken the bold step of communicating with Tori Spelling through TMZ … and her opening line isn’t gonna get her a lot of invites. Here’s the open letter in all its glory:


I Know many middle-aged people have issues about their parents and their upbringing. I did. My memories didn’t match all those of my mother, and, funny thing, it’s the same way with my daughter.

Life has consequences. What you say is on the record. Other people have feelings.

I have a vested interest in this subject. My daughter, Tori’s, two-part season finale revolves around my granddaughter’s first birthday party and how she has made what seems like an agonizing decision to invite me.

Cue music. Cue sideways glaces. Clue Lights.

I did get an invitation just in time for the RSVP deadline. I’m sure its delivery will be on next week’s episode with some comment about my house or driveway or street or something they won’t like. I wonder if that will be spread out over one part or two. Sigh.

A big party wasn’t how I envisioned meeting my granddaughter for the first time; but, hey, this is Hollywood, and my grandchildren havebecome reality show props, too. At the time I emailed “yes,” I didn’t realize I was being set up for a two-parter, even though it was clear I was being invited to be part of a segment for my daughter’s reality show.

Spoiler alert. Don’t read this if you plan to sit through an hour of people looking at their watches and saying “she’s late.” I decided my first meeting with my granddaughter should be on home video, not primetime cable; so I emailed that i would not be attending.

Back to other reality stars. My husband taught me that the plots have to be fresh and updated. The same old whining gets tired after a while. Enough complaining about what may or may not have happened during first grade or YMCA camp, or what vegetable you were forced to endure, especially when you are privileged enough to be on TV and get paid for it.

For all the reality show personalities, please remember that real life doesn’t get edited to make things better or worse or get better ratings. You’re responsible for what you do. Life isn’t just a show. And your families can’t just be props. Make your own season finale without creating conflicts you will regret later.”

So my point is that if she had quietly declined the invite, and explained her feelings to Tori, it may have been much more effective. Saying that you shouldn’t use your family as props in the media, and then turning around and doing the exact same thing yourself just completely discredits you. And, it’s not like Tori hasn’t allowed her children to meet their grandmother for good reason. Candy Spelling has done many horrible things to her daughter in the past, including blaming her daughter for her husband’s death. She’s also gone to the media at every opportunity, and has said vile things about Dean McDermott, Tori’s husband. So, why should she be running the kids over to grandma’s?
