Candy Spelling is gabbing about her relationship with her daughter to the media again – only this time, she’s all about love. “I love you, and I always will,” is the message she sends to Tori, 36, this week, just one week after she accused Tori of treating her children, Liam, 2, and Stella, 1, as “reality show props.”
In a new interview with USA Today, Candy reveals that she lashed out because was angry at the negative way she was portrayed on Tori’s reality show Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, which prompted her to post the scathing note on her website.
On the show, Tori appears upset that her mom was a no-show at Stella’s birthday party, lamenting, “I’m mad that I actually got sucked back into holding out hope once again after 36 years.”
Candy, 63, says the show was scripted and that she didn’t want her reunion with her daughter to play out on camera.
She adds that she and Tori don’t speak because “my daughter doesn’t like the telephone. She doesn’t answer. I text her. I have left messages. I’ve e-mailed her, and she doesn’t respond.”
When putting together her book Stories From Candyland, then – which features stories written by friends and son Randy – Candy says she didn’t bother asking Tori to contribute.
“It just didn’t seem comfortable to ask her. I had written her so many times and really never received any kind of response,” she says.
When asked if she and Tori will ever reconcile, Candy tells USA Today, “It could be years of disappointment. Maybe someday she’ll get it. She’s my daughter. I may not approve of everything she does, but I love her.”
