Candy & Tori Spelling: Latest Drama on the Mother-Daughter Feud



The feud between mother-daughter Candy and Tori Spelling just can’t seem to end. Candy Spelling sent an open letter to explain why she decided not to attend her granddaughter’s first birthday party. Check out the letter below..


I Know many middle-aged people have issues about their parents and their upbringing. I did. My memories didn’t match all those of my mother, and, funny thing, it’s the same way with my daughter.

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. At the time I emailed “yes,” I didn’t realize I was being set up for a two-parter, even though it was clear I was being invited to be part of a segment for my daughter’s reality show.

Spoiler alert. Don’t read this if you plan to sit through an hour of people looking at their watches and saying “she’s late.” I decided my first meeting with my granddaughter should be on home video, not primetime cable; so I emailed that I would not be attending.

Back to other reality stars. My husband taught me that the plots have to be fresh and updated. The same old whining gets tired after a while. Enough complaining about what may or may not have happened during first grade or YMCA camp, or what vegetable you were forced to endure, especially when you are privileged enough to be on TV and get paid for it.

For all the reality show personalities, please remember that real life doesn’t get edited to make things better or worse or get better ratings. You’re responsible for what you do. Life isn’t just a show. And your families can’t just be props. Make your own season finale without creating conflicts you will regret later.

Simply put, Candy Spelling preferred not to star on her daughter’s reality show “Tori & Dean”. Tori has not yet given her comment on the issue, but she’ll surely be giving “her take” on the incident soon.


  1. Candy, you are the mother & should be setting an example! Stop talking to the media! Be loyal! And be mother enough to take the first step & stop all this nonsense once and for all!!

  2. I love watching Tori and Dean and family and their friends. I feel good when I am watching the show.

    Although, I was happy to hear Dean’s son moved to the LA area and expected to see him more on the show and didn’t, why not?

    I hate how the relationship between Tori and Dean began. That is the one thing in the back of my mind that makes the whole relationship ugly. I only wish that the cheating affairs did not happen, and they had met while both single. If I don’t think about that fact, I love their family life. I hope this makes sense.

    I hope Candy and Tori eventually make-up, I believe they love each other deeply.

    Take care,
