Candy Spelling has reignited her feud with estranged daughter Tori Spelling by emailing a bizarre rant about the 35-year-old reality star to a celebrity gossip website.
On Sunday, the former trophy wife sent in a wordy rant to TMZ.com, taking a swipe at Tori’s recent dramatization of their troubled relationship on her Oxygen reality show Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood.
The mother and daughter have been engaged in a bitter war of words ever since TV mogul Aaron Spelling passed away in 2006. Candy recently went public with the fact she has yet to meet her 13-month-old granddaughter, Stella.
The relationship became even more tense after she blamed her daughter for her husband’s death, insisting that the estrangement from Tori “killed my husband. He just didn’t want to live after that.”
Candy is furious that she was invited to meet her granddaughter for the first time as part of the show’s plotline.
In an open letter, dated July 26, Candy fumes:
“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 (episode), even though it was clear I was being invited to be part of a segment for my daughter’s reality show.”
