Tori Spelling says her mother’s insistence of an on-going feud between the two has been greatly exaggerated.
“It’s not like we’re not talking, we just haven’t talked,” Tori revealed in an interview with PEOPLE on Monday. “I love my mother. I’ve always loved her [and] no doubt she loves me. There’s no feud. We simply never meshed.”
“My mother is who she is. I’ve become who I am. At some point I realized those two just didn’t go together.”
In an interview with 20/20’s Elizabeth Vargas last month, socialite Candy Spelling claimed that her 35-year-old daughter refuses to speak with her, she has been cut off from her grandchildren, and that she has never met Tori’s youngest child, 10-month-old Stella.
Not true, says Tori.
“I, in no way, cut her off,” Tori counters. “She is welcome to make the effort if she wants to be present in their lives.” She adds that their last contact was an email exchange while she was pregnant with Stella. “She knows how to reach me, she knows where we live. If she would love to see her grandchildren, she should really make an effort to reach out and see them.”
Tori’s new book, Mommywood, will debut on Tuesday. Stories From Candyland, the memoir from Candy Spelling, is in stores now.
