Appearing on a Massachusetts radio station Thursday to pimp her new book, Stories From Candyland, Candy Spelling not only bad-mouthed her 90210-starring spawn but went so far as to blame husband Aaron Spelling's demise on her estranged daughter.
"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 to 94.7 WMAS-FM's Kellogg Krew.
"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."
The über-producer died June 23, 2006, following a stroke; angst was not listed as the official cause of death.
Candy says that while both women have paid lip service in interviews about reconnecting, there has been no such luck thus far. "I've always been trying to work on the relationship. I don’t know what the anger is."
Call it a hunch, but maybe it has something to do with the accusations of patricide.
We've been trying to get reps for Tori and Candy on the horn, but so far nada.
