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.

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.
