It seems being cheated on by Dean McDermott isn't the only problem in Tori Spelling's personal life.

Tori's mom Candy has spoken out about the public trainwreck what is her daughter's life and, not surprisingly, she says she doesn't want to be blamed for her mess of a marriage.

In a new memoir, Candy writes of her relationship with Tori, "I am by no means saying I am the perfect mother now or that I didn't make mistakes while my children were growing up. Having said that, I also believe there is a time when you have to stop blaming your parents. Take responsibility for your own actions."

So Candy didn't come right out and say, "It's not my fault your marriage sucks and your husband is cheating on you," but the message is pretty clear.

Isn't it nice when the need for positive publicity overcomes the need to make headlines by trashing your daughter?

As recently as six months ago, Candy Spelling actually blamed the death of her husband on daughter Tori. She said that Tori's decision to no longer speak to Aaron Spelling "killed" him. Isn't that sweet?

Earlier this month, though, E! News confirmed that Candy spent quality time with Tori and husband Dean McDermott's two children, Stella and Liam. She then said this week:

"I'm looking forward to a lot of wonderful things. We have taken this private, which is what I've always wanted and I think so did Tori, and I'm really thrilled."

Why the change of heart?

Candy Spelling

It could have something to do with the fact that Candy realized she was making Dina Lohan look like a stand-up mother.

But, call us cynical, it might also have something to do with Bank of Hollywood.

On that ridiculous, upcoming reality TV show, regular people will ask a group of panelists - Candy, Pussycat Dolls singer Melody Thorton, Wilhelmina Models president Sean Patterson and poker player Vanessa Rousso - for money to assist with their dreams.

And Spelling isn't stupid: you can't garner strong ratings if you're best known for feuding with your famous daughter.

Still, it's nice to see mother and daughter getting along for a change. Maybe there's even still hope for Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren.

Wow. This is enough to make the Linda and Brooke Hogan seem like a close-knit mother and daughter.

Appearing on a Massachusetts radio station, 94.7 WMAS, yesterday to shill for her new book, "Stories From Candyland," Candy Spelling didn't merely bad mouth her daughter; she pretty much blamed the 90210 star for the 2006 death of her father. SERIOUSLY.

Dressed as Something

"My daughter one day decided that she wasn't speaking to my husband, myself and my son, and that's how it's continued for the last, oh gosh, four or five years," Candy said. "And it was sad, that's what killed my husband, actually. He just didn't want to live after that. He [had] just done everything he could possibly do for his daughter, and she wanted no part of him once he couldn't do anything for her."

Yes, referring to her own daughter's actions, Candy actually said: that's what killed my husband.

Candy Spelling has set the bar of awful mothering extraordinarily high. Good luck reaching it, Dina Lohan and Denise Richards!

In an attempt to garner more publicity for her joke of a memoir clarify her statement, Candy wrote the following for The Huffington Post:

"I didn't intend to create headlines. I was asked a question about my daughter not speaking with my family, and I answered truthfully. My husband was very ill, and he had stopped eating and taking liquids. He called Tori on a daily basis, and never stopped asking if Tori had returned his call. We had to say no every day."

We can only think of one response to these galling statements:

Anyone that purchases Candy Spelling's book should be stoned on the spot.

All the non-stop coverage of Britney Spears' recent traffic troubles and parenting mishaps is driving some people crazy. Among them? Candy Spelling.

T.H. GOSSIP NOTE: Candy Spelling sucks. As mothers and people go, she may even have Britney Spears' own mother, Lynne Spears, beat by a long shot.

Bit Bit

Candy Spelling: Standing up for Britney Spears. 

In a column on The Huffington Post Sunday, Candy Spelling cited a November 16 Los Angeles Times article about Britney Spears driving over the feet of a sheriff's deputy and two photographers. She's not pleased. She writes:

"Enough. It's time to leave this girl alone ... She didn't run over the feet of the two paparazzi or one sheriff's deputy on purpose. I've seen 'breaking news' of her driving on many networks, and I don't think her aim is that good... Feet must not count. We've already learned they are just misdemeanors. Fortunately, the foot faults do not seem to have resulted in any injuries to the three victims."

Candy Spelling's ridiculous rant continues ...

"That can't be the case for Spears, or her children [Sean Preston and Jayden James] whose terrified faces we see each time the paparazzi invade her car to get photos. Three feet is enough. We all know that something terrible is destined to happen to Spears, her kids, one of the photographers or innocent bystanders if she isn't given a few feet of space and privacy. How about a time out?"

She might have a little bit of a point.

Britney Spears clearly asks for it by parading around with no pants and going to public places at all hours, but maybe celebrity photo agencies should back off a little, too. As long as they don't give us Candy Spelling nude pics instead.

That pathetic loser Candy Spelling is at it again.

The senile old bag has been in the news lately for shafting daughter Tori Spelling and for writing letters to new daddy Larry Birkhead and the jail-bound Paris Hilton. Now she's desperate for attention again and picking yet another fight via TMZ.com.

Of course, she's lambasting Britney Spears.

As if getting the revelation that she got railed wheelbarrow style by J.R. Rotem weren't humiliating enough for one 24-hour period, Britney now finds herself the subject of a worthless, way-too-much-time-on-her-hands Candy Spelling tirade.

One in which, ironically, the shriveled snob rips the pop star's crotch shots and nipple slip tendencies, then goes on to - really - criticize Britney Spears' "sorry grabs for attention." 

** ring ** Hello? Kettle? Hi! What's up. This is the pot calling. You're black!

She also references Britney's wigs, which makes us wonder if Candy has read much celebrity gossip of late. Her wigs were sooo two months ago. Trashy bleach blonde hair extensions are her signature look these days. Stay on your medication, lady.

Anyway, here's Candy Spelling's letter to Britney Spears, via TMZ ...

Dear Britney Spears:

You made me do it. I didn't plan to write another letter. I took two weeks off from TMZ because I didn't feel strongly about what anyone was doing - or couldn't decide which side to believe.

You've driven me back to my laptop to ask why, if you have to slither in and out of cars, do clumsy imitations of gymnasts and wear clothes that are just too tight, trashy or skimpy, do you have to pose in front of photographers all the time?

The Hollywood Gossip to Candy Spelling: Don't you have anything better to do than write letters to random celebrities?

You know, like ignore your daughter Tori Spelling?

Like Marilyn Monroe

A couple months ago, Candy penned a note to Larry Birkhead. The misguided mother somehow felt as though it was her job to offer advice about how to raise Dannielynn.

Well, Spelling is up to her weird, presumptuous ways again. The recipient this time? Paris Hilton.

While we don't disagree with the fact that Paris sucks in every way imaginable, we wish Candy would leave herself out of subjects that should only be tackled by experienced celebrity gossip blogs. Nevertheless, here's the letter Spelling sent Hilton:

Paris, I'm very worried about you. The last week has not only been an obvious roller-coaster for you emotionally, but your strategy went from blaming employees and stating silly excuses like, "I don't read," to your new lawyer's tactic to have you sound mature and take some responsibility.

In between, the paparazzi continue to follow you shopping and taking self-defense classes (to protect yourself in jail?), and some over-zealous friends staged embarrassing protests (three people?), and wasted taxpayer funds with a petition to pardon you.

People who are rich and famous are not treated like "regular" people, even though you claim to now be just like everyone else. In most situations, your privileged life works to your benefit. You have opportunities, access and resources like few others; and frankly, you can get away with more bad behavior and excuses than most people could even imagine. However, as the real possibility of jail approaches -- whether it's 21 days or 45 or whatever the latest report is -- it's time to get real.

It's time to find "a Paris" somewhere between "heiress" and a character on "The Simple Life." I know she's there, and I know she can be a good citizen and maturely face consequences other people would have to face under the same circumstances.

I am sorry you have been sentenced to jail. I can't think of too much that would be worse. But since you let this happen, use the next couple of weeks preparing not only by publicly learning to fight (not a good message to fellow inmates), but by looking around, realizing that you are not as truly entitled as your money implies. You are a young woman who can add more to her community than establishing new definitions for infamy.

Amazing insight, Candy. But here are the two areas you should really be focusing your words of wisdom on:

As you await DNA tests to determine whether or not you're the father of a very famous baby, who better to offer advice than the mother of Tori Spelling?

With that in mind, consider how fortunate Larry Birkhead must feel to have received the following letter from Candy Spelling. After months of pleadings and tragedies, the former lover of Anna Nicole Smith will finally be crowned the daddy of Dannielynn once the test results are announced tomorrow.

Not Bothered

In the meantime, TMZ has unearthed this surreal correspondence:

Dear Larry:
As the court appearance that will change your life approaches, I am stepping into my role as a celebrity-by-association to share some experiences with you.

1) The hair, Larry: Most of the time, your hair looks great, and I'm sure you spend a lot of time getting it right. Just be warned that you might look good every day for a month. But the one day you leave in a hurry and don't pay enough attention, or you get a little wild with an untested new style -- photos will be taken that will haunt you forever.

* The Hollywood Gossip note: Britney Spears can confirm this

2) Fans/autograph seekers: Hollywood lives in fear of being yesterday's celebrity and ending up with an autograph languishing on eBay for days with no bids. If people want many copies, if they don't want you to personalize it, and/or they ask for Anna Nicole's name as part of your signature, nicely decline. If you slip and do see your autograph on sale, have a good friend bid more than 99 cents to buy it.

3) The lawyers: You've already found out that you have turned from man to cash machine. Lawyers aren't the only ones who will see you that way, especially if you are Dannielynn's biological father. The good news is that someone who presents you with a bill for $620,492.84 must think you have a good case. The bad news is that you will need more lawyers to fight the legal bills. My advice: Negotiate in advance, and put in a clause against expenses for lawyers, spouses, meals or laundry.

I wish you success in court on Tuesday, but beware:

There's never enough preparation for "celebrity." I'll never get used to tour buses and cameras outside my house every day, reporters analyzing my grocery choices, and bloggers [like Perez Hilton] pretending to know more about my family than I do; but I do have a good life. Yours can be, too. Just remember that celebrity and/or money mean that nothing will ever be the same - and act accordingly.

All the best,
Candy Spelling

A tribute to the late Aaron Spelling, which was to be hosted by daughter Tori Spelling, will not air on ABC this fall as planned. The cancellation occurred because Spelling's widow and Tori's overbearing b!tch of a mother, Candy, nixed the project, People magazine reports.

Spelling, the prolific creator of shows like Love Boat, Charlie's Angels, Dynasty and Beverly Hills 90210, died June 23 at the age of 83.

Tori

His wife and daughter have maintained a highly strained relationship over the past few years, culminating in a highly-charged and public dispute over his $500M estate.

Perhaps appropriate for a woman who recently admitted her love for adult films, Tori was given the proverbial shaft by her mom regarding her inheritance.

Tori Spelling, best know for her role on Dad's 90210, was to have served both as host and executive producer of the ABC tribute to her TV mogul father.

"All of his (Aaron's) stars had signed on and some interviews had already been taped. But Candy wouldn't release the clips of his shows because Tori was involved in the project. She had it killed," a source said.

Candy Spelling's representative, Kevin Sasaki, confirmed to People that she had talked to ABC about releasing the clips for the tribute, but denies that Candy stopped the show. Instead, he says, "she didn't feel the timing was right, since the Emmys were doing a big tribute to her husband around the same time."

Sasaki reiterated that rumors of Candy killing the project are false.

"She had nothing to do with this except that she was asked to release the clips and she didn't think it was the right time, so she turned them down," he said.

ABC, which was long been associated with Aaron Spelling's shows, has issued no statement and will not comment on the Spelling special.

Candy has agreed to provide clips to rival network NBC for a tribute to Aaron on its August 27 Emmycast. She will attend the Emmy Awards with son Randy Spelling, while Tori has yet to be invited as part of the family.
