Family Ties: Candy Spelling Tells Her sTori on Babble

The public airing of family laundry is always awkward, but Candy Spelling took it to a new level yesterday when she took a stab at daughter, Tori in a piece she wrote about the revenge of children for the parenting blog, Babble. Perhaps, the initial shock was that it came in the form of an appreciation of infamous Mommie Dearest, Joan Crawford, whom the widow of television mogul, Aaron Spelling says she pities.

While Candy does cite Joan's career milestones, it's hard for today's generation of moms and dads to get past the movie star's association with wire hangers. And, the allegations her daughter, Christina Crawford made in her book.

I don't doubt that Tori's shameless promotion of her tell-all, sTori Telling on everything from The View to a bikini photo shoot is hard for her mother to digest. But as a mom, I can't fathom writing a pointed commentary targeting my own flesh and blood.

Can you?

My mother is jealous of me too. I feel for Tori, I really do. Her book was great.

i couldn't find it on there. where candy's pix was there wasn't a link. tori has kind of dug her own grave on this one, first with that tv show and then the book, what can candy do? maybe she's hoping tori will stop if she comments back (?)

This whole family is just awful. That is private stuff that you don't share with everyone in the world.

I can't believe any mother would want to compare herself to that. What was she thinking?! That just makes me like Tori more.
