The knives in the ongoing fight between Tori Spelling and her mom Candy just got a whole lot sharper.

According to reports this morning, Candy is cutting Tori out of two planned television tributes to her late husband, and Tori's dad, Aaron Spelling. And Tori is none too happy about it.



One of the tributes to the legendary TV producer, an ABC special, was to be hosted and executive-produced by Tori but has been killed completely by Candy, says a People magazine source. "All of [Aaron's] stars had signed on and some interviews had already been taped . . . But Candy wouldn't release the clips of his shows because Tori was involved in the project."

Candy's rep confirms that the show won't go on, but says that Candy "didn't feel the timing was right . . . since the Emmys were doing a big tribute to her husband around the same time." Speaking of the Emmys, Tori reportedly lashed out at her mother at a barbecue over the weekend, , calling her a "b**ch," says Lloyd Grove, because Candy is also trying to bar her from the Emmys and the tribute to her dad there.

Tori's rep says the rant was misunderstood, and the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (the Emmy-bestowing body) says a Spelling celebration has yet to be finalized.

Brinkley Gets What She Wants – 'Cause It's Hers

Peter Cook's lawyer has said that his estranged wife Christie Brinkley "can have whatever she wants" should they eventually split up, but sources say that Christie would get the "lioness' share" of the couple's assets anyway.

"Christie brought most of the money into the marriage," confides one source in the New York Daily News. She was, according to the source, the principal investor in the pair's Hamptons properties, and that their prenup entitles Christie to most of their assets.

Separately, the other woman in all of this is no shrinking violet, as e-mails that Diana Bianchi's Southampton High School classmates might release could reveal. The now 19-year-old vixen, according to a source, "had a thing for some of the school's jocks and she made it clear in these e-mails that she didn't want other girls going near them." Bianchi's lawyer says, "We're not going to respond to all her high school friends."

Hef Doing Just Fine After Stroke Report

After a newspaper report that he was in ill health – or that he had in fact suffered a stroke – Playboy founder Hugh Hefner insisted on Monday that he was feeling just fine. "I've never felt better," said the 80-year-old publishing magnate. "We had a lingerie party Saturday night and I went up a little early because Holly [one of Hef's girlfriends] had a cold. I am in very good health."

Hefner hosted his annual "Midsummer Night's Dream" party at the Playboy Mansion Saturday night, welcoming Owen Wilson, Jack Black, Johnny Knoxville, and Jimmy Kimmel, amongst other guests, to his cozy confines, according to a Playboy rep. And the next night, Hef hosted a movie screening.

Dixie Chicks Cancelling Dates Due to Poor Sales

Country-rock trio the Dixie Chicks have ditched several concert dates on their "Accidents & Accusations" tour after slow ticket sales, but have added several others to, as they put it, "accommodate demand."

Kansas City, Houston, Memphis, and Knoxville, Tennessee, are amongst the cities that have been removed from the original schedule. Other cities' dates, like Nashville, LA, and Denver, have been postponed. Some DJs and music-industry insiders are saying that the Chicks' changing musical style has alienated some of its country fans, and that the new album, as one radio station manager in Indiana put it, hasn't "had that big of an impact around here." And yet other radio folk say that the damage from the group's criticism of President Bush and the war in Iraq hasn't yet been fully repaired.

The band counters that their album spent several weeks at the top of the country albums chart and has already gone platinum.

Goodie Bag: Bono and Steve Martin Are Neighbors, Ebert Has Surgery, Baldwin To Play Director on "The Sopranos."


New York magazine has published a controversial and – it says – accurate map of where stars live in New York City, and the map shows how the confines of Manhattan can make for some strange celeb bed- (or, at least, block-) fellows. . . Film critic Roger Ebert, on the mend from cancer surgery, had a minor surgical procedure Sunday to repair a blood vessel that burst near the site of his original surgery for a recurrence of salivary cancer. Ebert will soon begin physical therapy . . . Daniel Baldwin will play the director of the horror-gangster film that Christufuh (Michael Imperioli) so badly wants to get made on "The Sopranos." Baldwin was recently involved in an automobile accident in Los Angeles.

Anyone think that Tori looks like a man. Looks like a freaking tranny with that face.

I bet thats why Candy cut her out. It makes sense now. I'd cut that shemale bitch out of the will to. That kind of shit just isnt right.

Mommy dearest is an understatement! The only thing sweet about this Candy is the enormous bank roll! The best solution for Tori is move on with her life and realize that she lost two parents. Hey...being a part of the working class is not so bad at least she has both feet in the door of Hollywood and on the ground Keep smiling and don't let mommy see you sweat!

I do not believe that AAron Spelling would want Candy treating THEIR daughter that way. Must have something to do with her first marriage going sour so soon. Damn Candy, get over it! If your daughter is happy shouldn't that be all that matters? I'm sure Daddy is turning over in his grave. Remember Candy time will eventually catch up with you all and she may forgive some of what you did/said. She'll never forget. Guess you really don't care about your daughter. Oh well you still have your son to boss around. But for how long?

I think it's heartbreaking that Tori has never experienced the " unconditional love" of a mother . I"m sure many of her mistakes would have been avoided if she did.

So what if she's not gorgeous? So what if she hasn't made all the right decisions in life? Think carefully... have you?

Right now, she's going thru quite possibly the hardest period in her life. She lost the one person who loved her unconditionally. Granted, her father may have been upset, but he never stopped loving her. The same cannot be said for her mother.

My heart goes out to her and I hope she can move past this, find strength and inner peace, and make a life next to her new husband. I also hope that her mother realizes that everyone "reaps what the sew". In a few years, when she has spent all of Aaron's money and she's lying in a dirty bed drenched in her own urine, she'll want her daughter at her side. I hope she can live with the fact that Tori might not be there because of her own actions.

The person who wrote " I feel that Tori helped make her father famous with 90210" is an idiot. Aaron Spelling was a major rich, major famous television producer BEFORE stupid 90210. Ever hear of The Love Boat, Charlie's Angels, Dynasty?
