Tori and her family in 2000
Candy Spelling gave an interview to a Massachusetts radio station where she blamed her daughter, Tori, for Aaron Spelling’s death. Do you think I’m joking? These are Candy’s words: “My daughter one day decided that she wasn’t speaking to my husband, myself and my son…It was sad because that’s what killed my husband actually. He just didn’t want to live after that.” Seriously, what is Candy Spelling doing, going on a Bad Mother Tour? Before this, the worst thing that Candy has said about Tori is that “She’s always playing the victim, but at 36 years old, I think it’s time not to play the victim anymore.” Which may or may not be true, and it might be fine if some random person said, but when it’s yo’ mama, damn, that’s cold:
Candy Spelling is blaming the death of her husband Aaron Spelling on the heartache he suffered from daughter Tori’s alleged decision to cut off contact from the family.
In an interview with 94.7 WMAS in Springfield, Mass. this morning, Spelling said that she and her “Beverly Hills 90210”star daughter’s relationship has been nonexistent for the past several years.
“I’ve always been trying to work on the relationship [with Tori],” Spelling said. “I don’t know what the anger is. My daughter one day decided that she wasn’t speaking to my husband, myself and my son and that’s how it’s continued for the last, oh gosh, four or five years.”
Spelling went one step further however, saying Tori’s abandonment ultimately cost Aaron Spelling his will to live.
“It was sad because that’s what killed my husband actually. He just didn’t want to live after that. You know, He had done everything … he could possibly do for his daughter and she wanted no part of him once he couldn’t do anything for her.”
Aaron Spelling died on June 23, 2006. Just days after his death, Tori, 35, gave an interview to Us magazine, slamming her mother for an alleged relationship with family friend Mark Abramson.
Candy and Tori briefly reconciled in 2007 after the birth of Tori’s son Liam with husband Dean McDermott.
But in recent months, things have heated up again, with Candy arguing that Tori will not return any of her phone calls or emails, she has never met her granddaughter Stella and she doesn’t even know where her daughter lives.
Still Tori has denied any feud saying they aren’t “not talking” but have simply “not talked.”
“I love my mother. I’ve always loved her [and] no doubt she loves me. There’s no feud. We simply never meshed,” Tori told People Magazine. “My mother is who she is. I’ve become who I am. At some point I realized those two just didn’t go together.”

To me, Tori seems much more mature than her mother, now and forever. For Candy to so casually say “Oh, Tori is why he’s dead” is rather disgusting, and says more about Candy than Tori. So I guess all of that happy-talk from Candy about making up with Tori is pretty much gone. I really think that at this point, Tori is letting go of any desire or whim to resolve her issues with her mother. Perhaps Tori really should do that explicit tell-all about her mother’s sexual hijinks after all.
