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?
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.
