So Long Spelling

A private burial service was held Sunday for Aaron Spelling. While Tori was reportedly there, People did not include Dean on that list. Also, a released statement from the family did not include Tori. Something weird is going on but at least everyone agrees on one thing - Aaron will be a very missed man. Here's more:

"Our extreme sadness and grief is comforted by the overwhelming number of heartfelt calls we have received," Candy and Randy Spelling said in a statement released earlier by Sasaki. "We are truly grateful for the outpouring of love and sympathy expressed by so many friends and colleagues who knew Aaron. Our family is truly appreciative of everyone's love and support."

As for the rumored Candy affair, Page Six reports that Candy's good friend Mark Nathanson is just that and nothing more. To see what Tori and Heather had to say,

Tori has her own statement when her father passed on. She said:

Spelling's actress daughter Tori made peace with her father before his death. "I'm grateful I recently had the opportunity to reconcile with my father," she told PEOPLE, "and most grateful we had the chance to tell each other we loved one another before he passed away.

"It's a true blessing to have had a parent that loved me unconditionally. He had a heart as big as his talent and today, along with many others, I mourn his loss. He was a great man and even better father."

While Tori may have tried to clear the air, it was Heather Locklear who was his "lucky penny."

Heather Locklear, whose mid-series casting in Spelling's Melrose Place gave the show renewed buzz, said Monday she was sad to hear of Spelling's death. "He called me his lucky penny," she said, "but I am the lucky one because he graced me with his encouragement and talent."

Evil as in Valerie or evil as in Brenda (who to me was far more evil with her pretend sweetness)?

Oh, he will be missed. 90210 taught me that evil girls always come out on top. As for Tori, give the girl a break. Her dad just died and whether or not they had made up or she's a bad person is irrelevant. Losing a parent is huge, esp for former daddy's girls.

Definately he will be missed! It does seem a bit strange that Tori wasn't part of the statement, just Candy & Randy...

I was very sad when I heard this. He really was a huge talent. 90210, Melrose and Charmed were my fav shows at the time. So im very grateful To Aaron for providing me and so many more people with countless hours of entertainment.......RIP!

He will definitely be missed- a super talented man!!!Life is too short-you should always forgive your family.It doesn't matter what has happened in the past-they are still your family. They say Jennifer Aniston has reconciled with her Mom( not sure if true). What about Meg Ryan????What about Angelina and her Dad? Forgive and make new memories!!!!

I agree with you, maybe, life is too short. If it wasn't that big of an issue they should just let it go, family is very important.

These families in Hollywood amaze me holding grudges with family members (Meg Ryan, Jennifer Anniston, Tori Spelling). I realize none of us know how difficult it is to live in the spotlight and if my mother wrote a book about me (like Meg Ryan’s did), I guess I would be devastated too. But life is SO short! I would hate to think of going years without speaking to a family member and then they pass away. I bet Ms. Tori is dealing with a lot of guilt right now and it sounds like she should be.

I hope he cut her out of the will. She is such a b***h.

I hear the family was not too happy about Tori ending her last marriage so quickly and moving onto the next, boasting, "I finally found the love of my life, I never felt like this before" ... And they told her how they felt, which is why Tori stopped talking to her mother for 9 months and then quickly turned and married Dean ... She is a spoiled irrate bitch ... She should get little out of that will for her behavior towards her parents, and I'm sure she'll be the first with her hands out .... "Give me my share of the green" !!! Aaron was a genius, but I hear through a few people he wasn't so nice to the hired help, I don't like that !

If someone reconciled with her estranged father before his death, wouldn't that mean she would want to be there as he was dying...? Something seems fishy in this. JK Boogie, you're right. Heather is having a bad year.
