Spelling Smackdown

Since Tori decided to make her father's death a tabloid cover story, her mother, Candy decided to let everyone know how they feel about Tori. Sad but true, the Spellings have become a real life soap-opera. Candy released this statement as reported by ET:

"We are deeply saddened that, during our time of loss and grief, we are forced to respond to the media frenzy caused by the mean-spirited and surprising comments made by Tori to the press, just two days after the passing of [AARON SPELLING]. As we try to honor his memory with love and respect, the sudden media frenzy she has created at this sensitive time is hurtful and very disturbing. Aaron's legacy deserved pure and unadulterated tribute and recognition which, sadly, has been tainted.

"Everyone deals with grief in a different way, and since Tori chose not to be here at that time, we believe she is having a harder time dealing with that loss. We understand how difficult it might have been for her to be here, and, perhaps, more difficult for her after she arrived. Aaron loved both his children with all his heart, and he understood how hard it was for her.

"We hope Aaron will be remembered with reverence and spirit for the monumental legacy he has left and not for the petty and tabloid headlines which have marred his articles of remembrance. We have mourned our great loss as a family and will continue to do so as that is what Aaron deserved."

Ethiopian Princess, the picture may show some tension, but the photo is actually quite old...taken a while ago. Perhaps Tori's mom didn't just start being a b1tch :) And yes, those grody tits need to be fixed! She must be on a budget to have kept those things for so long.

I think it is sad how much money changes everyone! I think it is even sadder that there are people in this world just waiting for a loved one to die to cash in on their inhertience. People and life are not just about money.

I think it is sad all together that this wonderful person passed away and now all everyone is focusing on is the family drama. People should step back and evaluate all the wonderful things A. Spelling did during his lifetime instead. Now, in a year when everyone looks back, all they will be remembering is the family war.

Mother and daughter are the back end of each other, however why Tori didn't rush her fake boobs out of Toronto when she heard her 83 year old father had suffered a stroke I will never understand. She should be ashamed of herself and in hiding, not plastering her fugly face on US magazine.

This was no time for her to throw a pitty party for herself. The magazines should have focused on him and not her woe is me story. I can't imagine using this to gain publicity for myself. I would mad if I were her family too.

Tori sucks and should remeber the only reason she was ever given a chance to "act" is because of her family. Also, in the family pic her brother looks cuter than she does. She doesn't really look like her mother, but that's a good thing because Tori is fugly with a capital F. No amount of money or plastic surgery can fix that face.

hbearra, Aaron Spelling probably created 7th Heaven because it's what he wished his own family would be! Both Candy and Tori are screwed up and need a big slice of humble pie. As Biggie used to say: Mo money, mo problems!

Anyone else see the irony in the fact that this man produced some of the most memorable night time soaps ever and now his family is carrying on exactly as the characters on those shows did? Perhaps THEY were his inspiration for all the devilish fun...though I'm sure they didn't inspire him to produce 7th Heaven. It's very sad that they couldn't keep this private matter private and dealt with each other behind closed doors. Didn't this whole supposed feud start with Tori's tv show/quickie divorce/quickier marriage? I think I read that her mom was not happy about the way the character of Tori's mom was portrayed on the show. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you...

I apply the term actress term loosely

They created a monster...shame that Tori is biting the hand that fed her. I mean if her dad has not been so great she would have never been an actress let alone be a celebrity.

Who knows what she was told about her Dad's condition. Candy sounds a hell of a lot like my wicked stepmother. She's the type to tell you not to fly home when she or my Dad are in the hospital because “there's nothing you can do and you'll just be in the way and we won't be here that long anyway” just so she can spin it to her family, friends and of course my Dad as “She always was a selfish spoiled brat.”

Twinkie I completely agree. That added fuel to the fire and it was so unnecessary! I do also think that Tori should have been there instead of promoting whatever it was she was promoting. When my grandpa had a severe stroke (mom's dad) my mom went to the airport and took the next flight out to Ohio. She didn't even pack a suitcase.

TEAM MOTHER!!! Tori is an idiotic spoiled brat, who got whatever she wanted always! Her parents provided her with everything she ever needed and this is how she repays them? What a biatch!! Im telling you if i were her mother id throw her over my knee and smack her skinny non-exsistent ass!!! Get a life Toriiiiii!!!!!!!!!! argh!!

Tori going the tabloids is pretty bad but I have to say this is worse. Candy should have taken the high ground from the beginning by adding Tori's name to that first statement released about Aaron's death, regardless of whether or not the two of them were getting along.
