Tori Spelling's mother, Candy, just rained on her daughter's book-party parade.

Just a few hours before Tori will be celebrating the release of her second book, Mommywood, with a party in Beverly Hills, the elder Spelling went and posted a letter to her daughter on her website.

"I don't want a reunion via a talk show or to speak through the press," Candy writes. "I want a relationship with you and my grandchildren."

Candy writes that Tori left her with no other option than the public plea.

"You haven't responded to my emails, phone calls and text messages," she writes. "You say you look at my website, so I'm trying to reach you that way. I want to see you and your family—in private, like the 'normal family' you say you always wanted."

Candy recently announced she has put Tori's childhood home, the famed Spelling Manor, on the market for $150 million. She has said she wouldn't sell the house if she had a relationship with her grandchildren, Liam, 2, and 10-month-old Stella.

In a story posted on People magazine's website earlier today, Tori said that her mother is more than welcome to be a part of her kids' lives.

"She knows how to reach me, she knows where we live," Tori said. "If she would really love to see her grandchildren, she should really make an effort to reach out and see them."

Candy, who recently published her own memoir, Stories from Candyland, says she fears things are about to get worse. "With your book coming out tomorrow, the war of words will escalate," she writes. "That's not what I want. I want us to be a family."

OK, Tori, your turn…
