Spelling Saga Continues - Tori Gets Denied

Poor Tori can't catch a break. She spoke out about how she was coping with her father's passing and was even planning a tribute on ABC in Aaron's honor. At least she was until Candy crushed that idea. In the latest chapter of the best Aaron Spelling soap opera, mother and daughter are at it once again. Here's more:

A special tribute to the late TV producer Aaron Spelling to be hosted by daughter Tori will not air on ABC this fall as planned – after Spelling's widow and Tori's mother, Candy Spelling, blocked the project, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

Tori was to have served both as host and executive producer of the ABC tribute, according to the source, who said: "All of his (Aaron's) stars had signed on and some interviews had already been taped. … But Candy wouldn't release the clips of his shows because Tori was involved in the project. She had it killed."

Candy Spelling's representative, Kevin Sasaki, confirmed to PEOPLE that she had "talked to ABC about releasing the clips for the tribute," but denies that Candy stopped the show. Instead, he says, "she didn't feel the timing was right … since the Emmys were doing a big tribute to her husband around the same time."
