Candy Spelling rips Tori in open letter

July 27th, 2009 // 46 Comments

Candy Spelling sent the following open letter to TMZ which essentially rips into Tori Spelling for using her reality show Tori & Dean Home Sweet Hollywood to instigate family drama for ratings:

TO: MIDDLE-AGED REALITY SHOW STARS (LIKE MY DAUGHTER)
FROM: CANDY SPELLING
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 have become 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.

What? No accusations about killing Aaron Spelling? You used to be cool, Candy. You’ve changed, man. You’ve changed.

    more tits please

    Wow– such a mystery why these two don’t get along. I mean, just because your mom is a raging cunt doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get together for hug time.

    Hope “Candy” (really??) falls of the face of the earth and lands in a vat of vanity where she is tormented by people prettier than she is.

    I need to quit drinking whiskey with my breakfast.

    OoOh Tori is ugly

    I say Kudos’ to Candy for refusing to be part of the reality show. . These reality shows have gone to far. All the innocent kids involved. Desperate parents that cant think of any other way to make a buck are throwing there kids in the public eye. Denise Richards and Tory Spelling cant get a job doing anything else.

  6. Tanyaonya

    i feel bad for them, they just need to be apart bcuz clearly they are toxic to each other.

  7. If Tori had gotten part of the inheritance, she probably wouldn’t have to make the show. Its her parent’s fault.

  8. PunkA

    Flounder just got pwned by her retarded mother. How pathetic is that?

    Is it just me, or are celebrities becoming more boring and ridiculous by the day?

  9. This family is just sad. If they want the media attention to go away they should just resolve their issues. Nobody would be interested if their problems were solved.

  10. Why is it usually the last couple Monday’s that SF has been posting worthless crap articles such as this or Jon Gosselin? If I wanted to read this much nonsense I’d read that homo perez.

  11. Thats one way to solve family issues by alerting the media…shes talking to Tori like its one of her girlfriends…

  12. jesus

    how is anything about this bitch news?

  13. wtf

    “Clue the lights” Classic. Candy may need to lay off the booze for breakfast. You didn’t want to be part of the reality show because of the attention yet you sell a letter to TMZ about it? yeahhhhh, who’s the famewhore here?

  14. watson

    “I Know many middle-aged people have issues about their parents and their upbringing”

    That’s a thinly veiled and brilliant barb aimed right at Tori there.

  15. Mitch Haase

    Candy Spelling should just go into the garage and suck on an exhaust pipe. She is a vile woman who would make the world a better place if she just died.

  16. Yoda

    Fuck, I wish these two vapid cunts would just kill each other in a “celebrity” death match, and we could be done with them for good.

  17. The opinion that counts

    Candy, for gods sake, this is your child, who probably does have a somewhat skewed version of her childhood. However, there is probably some validity to her feelings too. Her father was mega rich and she received a paltry sum when he died. She seems like a good person, no drug user, no partying all night long, good mother and willing to work to make money. You can’t blame her for using whatever means necessary to boost her ratings, it all boils down to money. If you Candy, would just make things right for her financially that would probably be a huge first step towards some sort of reconciliation between you. Insulting you daughter by calling her middle aged is hardly what a loving mother would say. Take a good hard look in the mirror, it might hurt a bit to acknowledge your faults, but not having your daughter and grandchildren in your life will hurt alot more.

  18. Guesst

    Candy Spelling is a nut, who is using the press to harass and persecute her daughter for being close to Aaron Spelling. Tori Spelling was beloved by her dad, and Candy never accepted it. Instead of behaving like a mother, she behaved like a jealous, jilted lover-towards HER OWN DAUGHTER. She has been a mean bitch to Tori since Tori was a young girl, and is now playing it out in the public eye.

    No responsible parent would trash on their own child over and over again. Candy screwed Tori out of her inheritance, and Tori turned the other cheek. Candy has ignored Tori’s children and behaved like a true lunatic for years. She is MENTALLY ILL.

    Like Tori Spelling or not, she doesn’t deserve to be publicly humiliated by her mom, who clearly has mental problems.

    Give her a break.

  19. Shiro

    Maybe if she got her proper share of the inheritance she wouldn’t have to make all this drama about you in the first place. Your hording all the money for your self so this is how she’s making a living. Life’s a bitch ain’t it.

  20. la la

    wow, tori is fat.

  21. Rachell

    Ouch, Candy definitely doesn’t mince words, now does she? lol

  22. Kate Advo

    Shouldn’t they both be very happy? What’s wrong?

  23. GlO CA

    From what I have seen from the show Toni seem to be genuine when she invited her Mom. I think Candy could have tried to communicate with Tori instead of posting such a nasty response.

  24. Candy is a sick, menatlly ill, jealous bitch that probably never worked a day in her life. They crazy woman should be proud that her daughter is a contributing member of society, unlike her lazy jealous ass.

  25. Candy is a sick, menatlly ill, jealous bitch that probably never worked a day in her life. They crazy woman should be proud that her daughter is a contributing member of society, unlike her lazy jealous ass.

  26. LPB

    Shouldn’t that have read “From: Candy Spelling, Geriatric.”?

    “Roger that, lights are clued, over.”

  27. Dennis

    Tori and Candy, both, would be bag women without Arron’s fame and money.

  28. Victoria

    Middle-aged! In Hollywood anyone over 25 is considered middle-aged, so that must make Candy one of the walking dead.

  29. Did Chris Brown get to Tori? She looks awful! With a right left – right left, she’s toothless…gosh damn I’m ruthless.

    #19 Dad “beloved” her so much he pretty much cut her out of the will. There’s two sides to everything . Mean bitch mommy didn’t write daddy’s will for him, and you only have Tori’s POV on her horrible childhood to go by – which is scarcely impartial.

    Neither one of these women is a prize, from the younger homewrecker cunt to the older moneybags one. If Tori truly wanted a reconciliation for the kids’ sake, as she so publicly claims, setting up mom on reality TV is a guaranteed fail. But a fail that gets her ratings. So she’s a big fucking phony who uses and exploits her kids to show how wonderful cheek-turning she is. And if she didn’t do everything but move her bowels in public, she wouldn’t be “humiliated” in public – which is exacty the victimization she wanted in the first place. Oh, wait, I forgot, she did that on the earlier show, too – she clogged an entire toilet at someone’s house and walked away to let them deal with the surprise later. Face it, there’s nothing that bitch wouldn’t do for money.

    And if grandma wants to see her kids, outing daughter’s fucked-up little plan on TMZ gets her righteous revenge, but no visitation, so she went for what was important to her, too – payback. These cunts deserve each other.

    And 15 years from now when Tori’s equally fucked up kids are sick of her pimping them out on TV, they’ll get together with Denise Richard’s equally maladjusted, twitching brats and hire a hit man to do both their mothers in the most messy and painful way possible. And, if there’s any justice in this naughty old world, film it.

    hold the line here… CANDY SPELLING IS GIVING PARENTING ADVICE??? how funny! If Tori is “middle-aged” I guess Candy is just plain OLD. How sad that the child is one years old and her grandmother has not met her yet. Shame on her.

    TEAM TORI

  32. Candy, you worked your crazy manipulative magic on me, I believe. Prob cuz yer daughters fug.

  33. Darth

    This woman swims in the money.Why doesn’t she give her daughter her share? That will solve a lot of problems.

  34. Galtacticus

    Crazy woman! Sometimes you’re born in a heaven on earth.Or sometimes in a living hell! It all depends on the person!

  35. Nero

    The most depressing thing is when people think and expect you to live in a paradise on earth but it’s living hell! Because of the insanity of one person!

  36. Gando

    This is the kind of woman who will starve her own kids for sadistic reasons while doing charity for the third world publicly!

  37. valerie

    Really, another open letter? Who is the parent here and who is the child? Candy, you really look bad with this whole open letter business. Kids always complain about their folks. Suck it up and be the mother, really. If you really cared about your grandkids, NO ‘antics’ or show or book of Tori’s should matter.

  38. ishi-san

    Why does this stupid bored rich woman always send letters to everyone / about everyone????

  39. suck it up and grow up

    I really have to agree with Candy. All Tori and her spend thrift husband Dean seem to do is talk about how horrible Candy is as a grandmother but then invite her to this extremely public, overdone first birthday party. If she really wants the kids to know her, why doesn’t Tori invite her over for a private visit? Why does everything she does have to be put on display on that stupid show? She’s always crying, always whining. It’s getting old.

  40. Notfunny

    Candy is the disgrace here, instead of being a mature mother, she acts like a spoiled princess over which her daughter should fawn over her ? Im not saying Tori is perfect but the old had inherited like half a billion dollars, I mean cmon ! Of course theyre going to talk shit about you when you treat them like shit.

  41. I

    Candy,Open your eyes,you are the one who is missing out. A great daughter who doesnt know how to reach out to her Mom.Shes always afraid of getting some kind of rejection from you.Her husband tried to protect her and the children… he reads you like a book my dear. Big deal she wanted to do it on TV to protect herself and her family.And to make you look like a better Mother.Geeze it must be really hard for you to help your daughter..dahling charity begans at home. I bet that you watch her show weekly. You should take some mothering lessons from your daughter.This isnt a perfect world..But ill tell you one thing that is perfect ,a Grandchilds arms around you saying Grandma “I love you”. You cant put a price tag on that. You are a foolish old woman.That last sentance is for Tori.

  42. abby

    I commend this women. AMEN!
    I found out that both Tori and Dean weremarried to other people when they got together. In fact, Dean adopted a child with his ex, 3 weeks before telling his ex that he was “soul mates with Tori”. What an ass!
    My mom would be mortified if I did this, and certainly cut me off $$$. What Candy did financially and emotionally was intelligent, mature and well planned. And has obviously been around a lot longer then Tori.

    I am pissed I watched this show, when in reality it is based off of 2 cheaters. WTF! And Tori has been throwing her mom under the bus the whole time, because Candy doesn’t support this nonsense.

    Tori, I have watched your show, and my heart went out to you, as I was born to my mother, but we where not close.
    Life is short , Do not let your Mother have any more of your time or thoughts OF YOUR HAPPY LIFE ANYMORE You are a Woman now, with a husband and a family, that is it!

    THAT IS WHAT MAKES YOU SMILE
    Tori move on, do not call her , just dismiss her from your life!
    Just like she dismissed you out of her life and your Dads money (Think about it)
    Your life with her when you where young was not that great, right.
    Any of you sad feelings you may have now, SHE DID IT!!!!
    Just remember Life is to short, and you will be amazed what is ahead in your life and marriage.
    One tip, keep your eyes on your hubby

    He may be great now, but men are big boys, and they like to play
