“Extra’s” Mario Lopez caught up with Candy Spelling to talk about her new tell-all book, “Candy at Last,” daughter Tori Spelling’s docu-series “True Tori,” and more!
Tori Spelling and her mother Candy have buried the hatchet in time to spend the holidays together.
"I'm really happy to say we've taken it to a place that I've always wanted to," Candy, who next stars in E! reality show "Bank of Hollywood," tells "Extra" of rekindling her relationship with Tori, 36.
The mother/daughter duo has had a rocky relationship since the death of Tori's father Aaron -- but is working on reconciling for the sake of family.
"We're dealing with it privately," Candy, 64, says. "We're communicating."
Spelling adds that she "sure hopes" to spend Christmas with Tori, Tori's hubby Dean McDermott, and the couple's two children -- Liam, 2, and Stella, 1.
In July, Candy slammed her daughter for using her kids as "reality show props."
The next month, McDermott snapped back, "We don't use our children as props, we take really good care of our children, we love our children... everyone's entitled to their opinion."
The Spelling ladies have put their ammo away -- for now. Candy sent a public message to daughter Tori, and only has sweet words to say to her.
Candy told USA Today that she only has one message for Tori: "I love you and I always will." Despite mama Spelling's kind words, don't believe that any reconciliation is in the works.
On tonight's finale of "Home Sweet Hollywood," Tori laments Candy skipping the first birthday party of her granddaughter, Stella. "I'm mad that I actually got sucked back into holding out hope," Tori says of her mother passing on the bash. "I just wanted you to meet my daughter one time... I made a beautiful daughter."
Last week, Candy penned a poison pen letter to her daughter about missing the birthday party, accusing Tori of using her children as "reality show props."
The Spelling family feud continues today as Candy Spelling extends her war of words against daughter Tori.
In the letter, published on TMZ, Candy refers to her daughter as "a middle-aged reality show star," and claims that she agreed to go to granddaughter Stella's first birthday party, but backed out when she realized their first meeting would be broadcast on television.
Tori told "Extra" that she was extending the invite to her mother, saying, "She's Stella's only living grandparent." Candy, who insists that her grandchildren have become "reality show props," recently told "Extra" that she wanted to patch things up with the "90210" star -- off-air. "The truth is, I don't want to discuss things with her on her show."
Candy expressed interest in reconciling with Tori -- but Tori told "Extra" that if her mother wants to contact her, she needs to do so without involvement of the media. "She's welcome to contact me," the "Home Sweet Hollywood" star revealed. "Privately."
Tori and Candy Spelling are involved in one of the biggest Hollywood mother-daughter feuds, but Tori tells "Extra" she's open to reconciliation. The actress confesses, "She has not contacted me. And she's welcome to contact me. Privately."
On Monday, Candy posted a heartfelt plea on her website, asking Tori to "Call me, write me, text me... I want a relationship with you and my grandchildren." Tori admits, "I haven't seen it. I feel a bit clueless."
Spelling also confronted the scrutiny regarding her slimmed-down figure. A recent tabloid cover calls the actress/author anorexic and claims she weighs just 98 pounds, but Tori says, "I was pregnant for like 2 1/2 years. So, I don't think people remember me before then. I'm the same size as I was then."
The mother of two returns to her old zip code tonight in a guest appearance on the CW's "90210" and she tells "Extra" she was nervous about the return. The 35-year-old says, "I totally was such a dork. I went back to that place in high school like, 'What if I wasn't accepted?' But they were great."
