Candy Spelling Publicly Attacks Tori...Again!

When Candy Spelling wrote an appreciation of Mommy Dearest, Joan Crawford, my eyes popped. While her recent attack on daughter Tori via TMZ isn't as shocking, it still bewilders the mother in me. Why would a parent choose to publicly criticize their child? To decide for yourself and check out a portion of what the elder Spelling wrote,

. She said:

Life has consequences. What you say is on the record. Other people have feelings.

I have a vested interest in this subject. My daughter, Tori's, two-part season finale revolves around my granddaughter's first birthday party
and how she has made what seems like an agonizing decision to invite me.

Cue music. Cue sideways glances. Cue Lights.

I did get an invitation just in time for the RSVP deadline. I'm sure its delivery will be on next week's episode with some comment about my house or driveway or street or something they won't like. I wonder if that will be spread out over one part or two. Sigh.

A big party wasn't how I envisioned meeting my granddaughter for the first time; but, hey, this is Hollywood, and my grandchildren have become reality show props, too.

Do you think Candy has a point in taking Tori to task or is the Spelling matriarch just being completely inappropriate?

I watch Tori and Dean's show and I love it and them. I think they are really great parents and Liam and Stella are adorable. With that being said, I can understand how Candy might not want to have herself be on the show. But that still doesn't mean that she has to refuse to attend the party. Naturally Tori would have Stella's party be a part of the show, but if Candy didn't feel comfortable with that, all she had to do was ask Tori to have her edited out and not shown on the show, not refuse to attend at all and certainly not send an open letter to TMZ of all people.

I think they're both wrong for airing their dirty laundry so publicly.

My mother would do anything to see her grandchildren, including putting aside any anger she has towards me. Candy needs to act like a mother and grandmother and stop acting like a child.

I can't believe people would support Candy on this blog. If you watch the show you can understand how Candy has disappointed Tori her whole life. Apparently she saw Liam a few times and then never saw him again and that was her doing not Tori's (Candy was too busy in her palatial estate and condo). I'm absolutely positive that if Candy wanted to see Tori's kids away from the cameras then Tori would have agreed to that.

There is no reason why Candy couldn't have privately asked to meet Stella in private so there meeting wouldn't have to be filmed and then maybe gone to the party. She certainly didn't have to write a public letter on TMZ

Candy just isn't a nice mom. But because of it Tori is a great mom.

I think Candy is in the wrong. She is her mother and if she wanted privacy, all she had to do was ask. As for Tori exploiting her kids on TV; she is just trying to make a live as best as he can. She would have to do that realty show if her mother gave her the real money that her father left her.instead of hording it for her self.

Candy is a real b*tch, who calls herself a mother, yeah right! Candy deserved to be bashed in public for all the hell she has put her daughter through! She deserves what she gets! :MOB:

I watched that episode and I even thought to myself 'Wow, if Tori really wanted to mend things, why turned this into a tv FINALE and why invite her mother to a party surrounded by her friends who obviously are on her side--basically putting Candy in a somewhat 'hostile' environment while having to basically try and resolve the family feud?'If anything, the more proper way was to do it in private, just her and her mom and the grandkids and perhaps her husband too if he wants to join in. I sincerely believe that Tori may be setting it up for her mom to refuse coming, secretly I think she probably likes the publicity it gave her and it kind of ensures another dramatic finale and perhaps another season.It is weird to try to get the 'feud' resolved/neutralized in a tv show. No matter how public they both have been. But if Tori really wanted family business to stay in private, she shouldn't have done that esp. since Tori seems to think that she's the 'right' one in this feud. I'm not into 'public letter' back and forth (that's why I think these two are kind of insane that way), but I do recall that Tori used to make fun of her on this tv show she had on VH-1, basically portraying to be this cold passive-aggressive b!tch but comical. Hey, Candy may be that way but seriously...does Tori need to have a show revolving about her mom being a b!tch who basically 'ruins' her childhood?That I believe (since I wasn't following her story before then) was the Tori's first 'move' to publicly criticize mom in 'jest.' I think mom got mad at her though and sure enough communication between those two became mostly 'public' afterward.

I think Candy shouldn't have send a letter to TMZ but I do understand why she did. She knows that episode is going to bash her and she wants to defend herself. I don't see this as an attack. It's just wrong of Tori to invite her mother to come by when the cameras are on. They have a difficult relationship and they should sort it out in private without cameras there.
