Candy Spelling says she blames Tori for Aaron’s death

Celebs At The Carousel Of Hope Ball
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.

    From what I hear,Candy Spelling is a very cold hearted person who neglected Tori throughout her life(including childhood),lies a lot,and let’s not forget that she was cheating on
    Aaron Spelling with one of his associates.

    I agree with Tori when she made the claim that Candy got Aaron to change the will when he was all med’d up,or half asleep.

    His old age and health conditions killed him,not Tori.

    If anything,Aaron Spelling died of a broken heart and shame from Candy,knowing she was cheating on him with a loser who was going to spend his chedda when he is dead and gone.

    I’m Team Tori all the way.

    And no,I will not be purchasing
    Candy Spellings book titled “CandyLand”.

    Candy Spelling is a twit,who tries to make Tori look bad,and it just makes her look worse.

    What a bitch.

  2. Rosanna says:

    Candy Spelling reminds me of my mom. ‘Nuff said.

  3. Canadian Fan says:

    Oh, Candy Spelling…there are no words.

    I totally don’t blame Tori for not talking to that woman. I certainly wouldn’t want to have her as any part of my life! The nerve to outright say that Tori caused her father’s death..
    There’s a special place reserved for you in hell, Candy!!!

  4. CandyKay says:

    Aaron Spelling was 83 years old when he died. Could old age maybe have been what killed him?

  5. Kathy says:

    I thought Candy was trying to get back in Tori’s life. Newsflash: this isn’t going to help!

  6. Rosebudd says:

    It is true I’m sure that Aaron died fr. old age and cancer, but in a certain way I understand what Candy meant by him dying of a broken heart…All the money, friends and fame may be nice but ultimately, it is the love of your children that matter the most at the end of the day. My dad died 11 yrs. ago today but shld. have died at least 16 or 17 yrs. ago according to his illness & doctors. The incredible love and devotion of my mother, brother, my kids & myself kept that man happy & living much longer than he shld. have. I think Tori shld. wait until her kids are grown before slamming her mother. I see her desire for money, fame & power very similar to her mother’s. Seems her husband is really the mother. Everthing seems to be a tv show, book deal & photo-op w/ her kids. More is always better w/ her. Mark my words, Tori, you will be sorry for making your whole life about your strained relationship. What goes around, comes around. You do seem very funny, sweet & straight laced, but do your job, be content & enjoy your children privately.

  7. BlahBlah says:

    If she was so concerned about his health, maybe she should have treated ‘his’ daughter better, so that she’s be around them… maybe she shouldn’t have taken advantage of a sick dying man and had him change his will. This Candy woman is a psychopath for real. I honestly think she has serious mental problems.

  8. happymom says:

    She says Tori killed her husband, and then wonders why Tori doesn’t want to have a relationship with her? Wow.

  9. Ursula says:

    Maybe this woman killed him behind closed doors. She seems nasty enough.

  10. HEB says:

    He was OLD.

    I’m on Team Tori these days.

  11. Rachel says:

    I support Tori. Anyone who says anything like that about their child SHOULD NOT meet her grandchildren and ruin their lives too!

  12. Kait says:

    Ultimately, there are three sides to this story – Tori’s, Candy’s and the truth. I am not a Tori Spelling fan but all this crap Candy Spelling has done with her letter writing campaign to young Hollywood and trashing Tori has just made Tori come out looking much more mature and reasonable. Candy seems like the kind of uber controlling Mom that would make anyone count down to their eighteenth birthday.

  13. bros says:

    well, apparently tori has a face even a mother can’t love.

  14. wow ! says:

    Wether Terri is responsible of her father’s death is irrelevant.

    there is no word to describe that so called human being , a so called MOTHER who would said that to her child, let alone in public. What kinda moher is this ? Blaming the death of her husband on her OWN child ?

    Obscenity has hit a new level with that woman !!! She is evil and subhuman !

  15. yadira says:

    Bros I completely agree LOL!

    This is just cold for her to say that. DAYUM! Does anyone else think Tori’s pug Mimi resembles Candy?

  16. Lori says:

    Bros!!! That is so funny!

  17. Trillion says:

    Is that Candy’s permanently fixed expression?

  18. ChristinaT says:

    damn, this woman is the devil :/

  19. Anoneemouse says:

    Despite blood being thicker than water, there really are some relationships that are so dysfunctional it’s better off not pursuing that relationship – even if it is a parent.

  20. just a poster says:

    Poor Tori.. can you imagine hearing that, let alone the entire world..

    On the other hand.. Candy is making all our Mammas look a bazillion times better!

  21. Moore says:

    I’ll never support tori or her mother but I can see what she means if what she really means is that after his daughter walked out of his life that he just gave up. I would too. If his daughter meant that much to him it would hurt it deeply. It wasn’t what killed him but it didn’t help him either I’m sure.
    Also, Tori looked so much better then.

  22. Kelly says:

    Sick, sad and insecure woman! Your own daughter, if you feel that way, keep it to yourself and let your daughter live her life with her family. Sounds as if you need a life, Mrs. Spelling!

  23. AC says:

    Wow, and to think I used to be so jealous of Tori’s starring role and all of her wealth while growing up as teen fan of the original “90210″… not so much now.

    Still pretty much can’t stand Shannon Doherty though…

  24. SixxKitty says:

    Thats it for me, creepy woman.
    Team Tori!

  25. RAN says:

    Um.. the award for the best twisting of words goes to…

    The woman didn’t say “Tori killed her father”, she said Tori’s abandonment cost Aaron his will to live (essentially).

    I don’t like either of them, but let’s be fair here… they’re BOTH disgusting – Not just Candy because she described an event in her life that (she feels) affected her family.

  26. Maggie says:

    That woman sounds awful. Xx

  27. Ann says:

    Soooo sad in so many ways. This only proves to me that T is telling the truth about her birth M. Tori’s 1st book was hard to believe but now I believe her. Mommywood was a good read to boot.

  28. JustMe says:

    The bitch doesn’t fall far from the bitch-tree.
    Tori knew her Dad was dying and didn’t go see the man that gave her a career and opportunity where she would have had none.
    Tori also doesn’t encourage her husband to be part of his “adopted” child’s life.

    Sorry, but to me, they are both despicable.

  29. j. ferber says:

    I agree with Rosebudd and JustMe. Rosebudd, you wrote a really lovely post that touched me. You were a great daughter to your dad and I know that means a lot to you. Tori is no joy, and it is interesting that Candy has nothing better to do with her time or her life than perpetuating this silly feud (which, incidentally, gives both women publicity and fuels interest in their silly books).

  30. meow mix says:

    Candy is a very sick woman…I hope she can get some help.
    My father was very similar in the that they are often able to fool those around them that they are normal functioning human beings but those closest to them
