Tori Spelling has always been scary skinny, so says Candy Spelling

NBC Universal Summer Press Day

Over the past month, the tabloids have been wondering aloud yet again if Tori Spelling is “scary skinny”. At first I defended her, as I usually do. But then I saw some other photos of her, and yes, she is definitely at the “scary skinny” phase. But not according to Tori’s mom Candy! Candy thinks we’re all haters or something. Candy’s defense? Tori has always been scary skin. Something like that:

Candy Spelling, 64, defended jabs about daughter Tori, 36, despite the Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood star’s increasingly shrinking size.

“Tori has always been thin,” she told Hot Stuff at the Broadway opening of Promises, Promises in NYC April 25. “This morning, I was lounging around and saw [Tori’s 1996 TV movie] Deadly Pursuit. She was thin there.”

Candy also disputes tabloid Star’s recent report that she can’t stand her daughter’s husband of four years, Dean McDermott, 43, and offered Tori $10 million to leave him.

“Our lawyers wrote very strong letters,” says Candy. “It’s not true.”

Well, I’m glad that’s taken care of. I’m of the generation that grew up on 90210, and while I can say for sure that Tori has always been slender – excepting those hideous implants – she hasn’t always been this thin. This is something that’s been happening over the past year, and denial isn’t helping.

Meanwhile, reports indicate that Tori is working on a deal with ABC for her own daytime talk show. According to the LAT (via Access Hollywood): “The network is said to be looking to create a “Will & Grace” style atmosphere between Tori and a potential co-host, who has not yet been selected.” I hate to say this, but… that’s honestly not the worst idea. I’m sure it will crash and burn, of course, but I could see Tori and some random, bitchy gay dude being absolutely hilarious together.

    So, Tori didn’t eat when she was a kid (traumatized kid). Fine, Candy. That doesn’t make Tori a healthy person now.

  2. Leek says:

    I couldn’t care less if she’s a bag of bones. That is her problem that she needs to deal with. I’m just glad she and her mother aren’t battling each other taking up precious space on the web.

    Although, I do not recall Donna Martin being “scary skinny.” Quite average, actually.

  3. Oh, yeah – like Clinton & Stacy, she could do it with Christian, of Project Runway!

  4. happymom says:

    Laineygossip just ran a recent photo of Tori-you could literally see all the bones in her back (she was wearing a halter dress). Thin is one thing-anorexic is something else. I’m guessing that her mother is so happy to be back in her life and have access to those grandchildren that she’s being super defensive of Tori.

  5. Jillian says:

    I agree that she was not that skinny in the 90s. Since she gave birth to Stella she’s been thinner than ever.

  6. thepickle says:

    Another hollywood fashion victim with no mind of her own. Just take the pills, get the implants and injections and then you can claim to “be somebody” or in Tori’s case, be worthy of your celebrity inheritance.

  7. lucy2 says:

    I remember 90210 too, and while she was always very slim, she was never skeletal. I’ve seen the scary skinny pics of her, and there’s no way that naturally happens without some sort of eating disorder. I hope she turns it around and gets better.

  8. Dear Kaiser –
    Look, we NEED nick names. Maybe a key in the header so people understand who we are talking about. But we NEED nick names. My firewall (YES, I AM WORKING! See, you can even hear me typing nosy neighbor in the nearest cube-cage!) at work is at war with any really great story – Brit, Johny W, Ellen, Vanilla Gorilla, Lilo. Any time their real names are written or if you write boo bies, or sessy (sexi) or anything juicy in the header my work will just call it por-no. EVEN if I write the real names or the actual words I get blocked when submitting a comment. I hate this – I thrive on a good Brit story or a good (ie. really bad) Lilo one!
    Please help,
    L. FAT M.
    P.S. I am dying to know what is up with my fav ice fairy princess is this the “slore” story or did more happen? How is a girl supposed to live with out fresh gossip!
    P.S.S. I need an iPhone!

  9. Maritza says:

    She might look a little better if she got her wonky nose fixed.

  10. Eileen Yover says:

    Speaking of iphone you lovely ladies at CB…when can I get an “ap” for this?? I needs me some good reading while on the treadmill. I could get online with my phone but its painfully slow! Direct aps go fast!

  11. Madchen says:

    With her cheek implants and freaked out lips, she reminds me of the Joker in the header shot.

  12. Granger says:

    She is definitely scary. The gaunt face says it all. And her arms are STICKS. That is not normal — or attractive.

  13. bellaluna says:

    She may have always been thin, but she has never been THIS skinny. Sounds like another case of pseudo-celeb denial.

    @ Maritza – If I’m not mistaken, her nose cannot undergo any more surgery, which is why it has stayed wonky like that for so long. I seem to recall she had a botched nose job, then had one or two more surgeries to fix it. Needless to say, it didn’t work.

  14. Ruffian9 says:

    Ah, actually she hasn’t

  15. fizXgirl314 says:

    This scary skinny thing is definitely a new trend in hollywood… I don’t recall so many celebrities popping up with this “disorder” a few years back… quite frankly, I’d be quite content if all of hollywood starved themselves into oblivion…

  16. Dusky says:

    A bit off topic, but did she do something to her face? I just looked up old photos of her to see exactly how skinny/not skinny she was in the past, and she looks way different now… almost plastic-ish.

  17. Slymm27 says:

    But she is one ugly woman

  18. boo says:

    I’ve always liked Tori, except for maybe some of the more hysterical moments on Tori and Dean, but she has an eating disorder.

    She does not eat in order to be that skinny. She is a rail and must look alarming in person.

  19. Ana says:

    I saw a movie with her in it the other day not sure but I think it was a Lifetime. No, I didn’t watch the whole thing ugh. Anyway. She was watching another girl dance, turned around told the guy she was with she could do it too. Then she started dancing and I started laughing.
    She was skinny, but you couldn’t see bones. She is probably about 10 pounds less than she was in that movie.

  20. CoCo says:

    Is it just me, or does this ABC tv show sound suspiciously like Dean’s ex-wife’s shows? I can see Tori trying to outdo Mary Jo.

  21. JustMe says:

    She had the best figure at the onset of 90210: now?
    Her boob jobs and concave chest are downright frightening.

    But really, WHO cares?

  22. Kelaa Khaa says:

    Maybe Tori has hyperthyroidism?

  23. canadianchick says:

    I saw Dean’s ex Mary Jo on the Joy Behar show speaking about infidelity. Yeah Tori’s show would definitely be a copycat situation.*passing Tori a cheese pizza*

  24. Dhavy says:

    She was the thinnest girl in 90210 but she was not this thin. I think her eyes popping out makes her look even thinner (if that makes sense)

  25. geraldo says:

    I always thought she looked like a chihuahua.

  26. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    I have hyperthyroidism: food helps.

  27. j. ferber says:

    I cosign that she should get her nose fixed–just symmetrical nostrils would do a lot for her face. I’m just saying, fix the first nose job. I’m sure it’s possible.

  28. Kim says:

    Sorry we saw her on 90210 and she wasnt always anorexic Candy.

  29. Kim says:

    She has always been thin but not sickly thin like this. I think her dead end husband and marriage is taking a huge toll. Why doesnt her mother help her out financially> she shouldnt hold it over Toris head to divorce Dean to get money. He will always be the father of Candys grandchildren and he isnt going away so she night as well do good by her grandchildren and daughter and help out financially. Everyone knows Dean is a dead beat loser. If Candy helped out financially we wouldnt forget what a dead beat he was – in fact it would only solidify the fact that he married Tori for her $ and nothing else.
