Tori Spelling’s mom says she got a lot more inheritance than she claims

wenn2348839
Tori Spelling claimed that she got just $800,000 from her father’s 1/2 billion estate and that a lot of it went to pay off debt she had amassed. She even held a yard sale in late 2006 to make some money. She then tried to make it seem as if she used her inheritance to buy the inn that was featured on her reality show, “Tori and Dean: Inn Love,” but that inn was rented. Tori’s estranged mom Candy Spelling is set to claim in her upcoming book that Tori got a lot more than just $800,000 in inheritance and that Tori was rich and set for life after making millions on her dad’s TV shows:

Expect more fireworks in Tori Spelling’s ongoing feud with her mom Candy – after Candy accused her daughter of flat-out lying about her inheritance!

The shocking claim comes in Candy’s new book “Stories from Candyland,” and The Enquirer has an exclusive sneak peek of the blockbuster memoir.

The nasty mother-daughter feud heated up after legendary Hollywood TV producer Aaron Spelling died in 2006. His $500 million estate was due to be divided between Tori, her brother Randy and their mom, his second wife Candy.

Tori said she expected to inherit a sizable portion of the estate, but she claimed Candy, who was the executor, approved an inheritance of just $800,000.

“But in Candy’s new book, she pretty much calls Tori a liar, saying Tori had been left much, much more money, although she doesn’t give a specific amount,” a publishing insider revealed.

“In addition, Candy says Tori was already ‘stinking rich’ and had made millions starring in her father’s show ‘Beverly Hills, 90210.’

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, April 13, 2008]

Candy definitely has an axe to grind after her daughter trashed her in her biography, sTori Telling, and you can see why Tori has an issue with her. Tori is a piece of work too though and is said to not even have visited her dad in the last few months before he died, and to not have attended his burial.

I’m inclined to believe that Tori really was broke before she got her inheritance as I remember reading that someone witnessed her unable to pay for stuff with two credit cards that were both maxed out. After that it’s possible that she got more than a million in inheritance and it’s also possible she blew that too given that she said she was unable to stop spending. Her brother said that he got just $800k too and that they knew that’s all they would be receiving well ahead of time.

Tori is hustling and making money her own way. She still has a reality show on Oxygen titled “Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood,” a jewelry line with HSN and another book coming out, titled Mommywood, on April 14. She’s not going away any time soon. Maybe if her mom had thrown some more cash at her she would have bought some respite from having to deal with tell-all books and seeing her daughter’s grinning mug all over the tabloids.

Tori and Dean are shown at the Kids Choice Awards on 3/29/09. Candy Spelling is shown on 11/6/08. Credit: WENN.com

    They’re both as bad as each other. The feud seems to be working, publicity wise for the both of them (Tori has a book to sell, her mom a house) so I suppose there’s no end in sight…at least for the time being.

  2. heh-heh says:

    I don’t know why celebs plead poverty to get our sympathy. She said she “only” got $800,000 from her Dad’s will — the average family of four (before the housing crisis) made about $45-50,000 a *year*. Are we supposed to feel sorry for you and buy your sh1t on HSN? Get real

  3. Pufft says:

    She is definitely broke… can’t even afford to buy food. My gawd, bones is all I see on this woman.

  4. Ursula says:

    She can be ugly both inside and out. There is no way she can be that. She comes off as a nice person in interviews.

  5. Angie says:

    I just think it’s sad that Arron’s death didn’t make them realize how short life really is and that they didn’t get over both of their bratty, rich-girl antics. They both need to grow up!

  6. manda says:

    Thank you, heh-heh! Exactly!!! She should have saved some of the money she made from 90210 and various made-for-tv movies instead of spending it on clothes and other frivolous things. My parents made under six figures, I have student loans up the butt and a mortgage. That 800,000 would pay all those things off for me, and allow me to finally live a life where I could save some of the money I make. Instead it goes to bills, utilities, food. You know, IMPORTANT THINGS!

    Why is Tori’s husband not working and supporting his family? Would the family have seen more of Tori before her father died, and since, if they used to give her money? Aaron Spelling left a will, so his money was left to whom he wanted it to go, and if Candy Spelling wants to give it all to charity it’s up to her.

  8. for_realz says:

    Maybe she didn’t have good financial ethics instilled!?

    Growing up filthy rich and working as a teen isn’t really a great way to learn how to pinch pennies.

    Give the woman a break, her mother IS nuts. At least Tori is getting her hustle on and trying to make her own $$.

  9. yadira says:

    Why does she have a crater on her bossom? Is that from plastic surgery?

    I think both these woman are only concerned with money. If my daddy passed away, I would always be talking about him and not what he inherited to me. Money is nice to have but there are more important things in life….such as loved ones.

    Her mom is awful.
    I cannot imagine that she’s a happy person. Tori,yes,is not much better,but I tend to put the blame on the mom here.
    I see no reason why both Tori and her brother would like about the 800k..and I can believe the Dad planned that.
    Just as Paris Hiltons grandfather didn’t leave his kids anything-what are the exact details?
    Some ppl want their descendents to work for their success.
    Regardless,why does Candy need to keep doing this? She is loaded-why keep drawing publicity/attention to herself? Even ‘in defense’ of tori’s book charges,she should just let it go-ignoring something like that would be the high road.
    Charging back just makes me believe that it’s all true.
    And not meeting your grandkid?pfft…if you are not willing to grow and be kind to your daugther,then that is your fault for not meeting her,Candy.

    Honestly,it takes two,I know,but I can relate to having parents who violate boundaries,say inappropriate things,and all around verbally/emotionally undermine at every corner. It’s sometimes not worth it—similar to Angelina Jolie and her Dad. At a certain point,you may realize that since you can’t fight city hall,you’ll figure out a way to live your life w/o it.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Irm, I too can relate to “that kind of parent” – being undermined at every turn. I walked away for 10 years and it did me a world of good. It cut me off from the children in my family and that hurt but it had to be done.

      P.S. : Candi doesn’t need the $ from writing a book, so I only see the book as a means to get attention for herself as a “victim”. And I’ve seen THAT before too :)

    I think the mother is a money grubbing witch, her husband was sick and dieing and she made him change his will because Torri and her brother wouldnt do what her Momma said to do. SHe is controlling. SHe has more money then God and she needed it ALL for herself. I doubt for one minute she put any money into any trust for her grandkids.She needs it all for herself, face lifts boob lifts and plus she was already cheating on her husband while he was dieing with that guy who was her “close friend”..Oh yes Candy tell your side but try telling the truth. SHe and Torri fell out over her sleeping with the guy..her dad wasnt even cold and she was having him over to the masion..

  12. Leandra says:

    Since there is no way now to know what the truth is, better to just forget about this feuding family and move on to celebrity news a bit more reliable….if there is such a thing.

  13. Valensi says:

    Trashy people in their prime.
    Poor Aaron Spelling. The man had to actually deal with these loonies.

  14. PAULA says:

    DEAN IS CERTAINLY USING HER FOR HER MONEY! HE HAS NO CAREER LEFT. HE’S SAW $$$$ SIGNS. AND HE CALLS HER MOMMA! OH GOD, SHE’S NOT YOUR MOMMA! OH YEA, SUGAR MOMMA.

  15. j. ferber says:

    I can’t believe that in Hollywood Tori found it impossible to get a decent nose job.

  16. Sandy says:

    Im just tired of hearing about Tori Spelling and Kate Gosseling. These women sure love to be on tv. Why do they have to make money from there kids.

  17. Jboogie says:

    Regardless of the family relationships, Mr Spelling has given his family a foundation to build from. His current wife should act in good faith and work with the family to make his Mr Spelling legacy continues. Money should have been the last issue, because it’s plenty of that. So, the issue is deeper than money, I believe that there is deception and greed in the mist, I hope everyone can look at the bigger picture and grow from it and make this cherish forever.

  18. skarrlette says:

    The daughter deserves her fathers money it should have nothing to do with the mother. The relationship is stronger between father and daughter they are blood men can divorce women. The daughter should get her fair share of her fathers estate and not 800k! Secondly C is a F B!
