It's no Middle East peace treaty, but it looks like one of the world's most heated feuds has finally come to an end.

A source tells me exclusively that Tori Spelling and her mom, Candy, have quietly been repairing their once very fractured relationship.

I'm told the two began talking again in September, when both were in the hospital. Tori was being treated for a stomach ailment, while Mama Spelling underwent back surgery.

Things are going so well that...

Candy finally met Tori and hubby Dean McDermott's 18-month-old daughter, Stella. She has also spent time with grandson Liam, 2, who she apparently hadn't seen in over a year.

Candy's rep declined to comment while a rep for Tori did not immediately comment.

In April, Candy posted an open letter on her website expressing hope that she and the 90210 star could begin having a better relationship. She also said she'd like to start spending more time with her grandchildren.

Candy declined Tori's invite to Stella's first birthday party in July because, the matriarch explained, she didn't want to become a storyline in the Tori & Dean reality show.

Not that Candy has anything against reality programming. She'll be featured on E!'s very own upcoming Bank of Hollywood, a Ryan Seacrest-produced show premiering Dec. 14 in which everyday people will try to persuade a group of panelists, including Candy, to give them money to help them fulfill their dreams.
