Emmy Drama: Will Tori Appear in Tribute to Dad?

8/27/2006 11:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tori SpellingThe nasty fight between Tori Spelling and her mom Candy just keeps getting nastier-and everybody will be watching tonight to see what kind of shadow it casts over the awards-show broadcast.

A tribute to TV titan Aaron Spelling, who died in June, is slated to be one of the highlights of the show-but neither his daughter nor his wife is scheduled to appear in it. And, moreoever, even clips of Tori playing Donna Martin on "Beverly Hills, 90210" may be excluded from the tribute because of the feud.



The LA Times reports that celebs from a wide range of Aaron Spelling's TV shows will pay tribute to him, including Heather Locklear ("Melrose Place") and Joan Collins ("Dynasty"). But reports several weeks ago said that Candy was trying to keep Tori out of the planning of the tribute, and didn't even want her to show up at the Emmys at all-a charge denied by Candy's spokesman. He told the LAT, "Everyone is giving Candy Spelling too much credit. She's been accused of running the network, producing the Emmys and deciding who can and can't come." That denial hasn't stopped industry watchers from speculating that Candy really is the power behind the scenes-so everything that goes on tonight will undoubtedly be scrutinized by loyalists on both sides of this sad family feud.

Paris and Nicky's Little Brother Makes a Move

Like sister, like brother? Could be, if Barron Hilton's summer interning for Hamptons magazine pays off. Page Six reports that Rick and Kathy Hilton's 16-year-old son has been fetching coffee, photocopying and other intern tasks. (We wonder if those include fact-checking reports on his sisters' escapades.) We assume he's not slumming it this summer, though-his parents own a $6.3 million house in the Hamptons.

Ricky Selling Off La Vida Loca

Looks like the royalty money is starting to trickle away, as faded pop star Ricky Martin is selling off a whole trove of pricey real estate. The New York Post's Braden Keil reports that Martin has sold his 65th-floor apartment in the posh Time Warner Center for over $9 million, netting him a pretty swell $3 million profit in the process. Meanwhile, he also unloaded houses in Miami and Puerto Rico, and recently got $18 million for his mansion in Beverly Hills. No word on where Martin will actually be living, but Keil says he's looking for a new pad in New York.

Party Favors: Bob Marley Prints Money...Elton Wants to Make Like K-Fed

Jamaican reggae star Bob Marley may have died 25 years ago, but his legacy lives on-and not just in his music. The Bank of Jamaica is putting his face on a series of 1,000 commemorative coins in gold and silver, and selling them for a cool $100 each. "We've received quite a bit of interest already," a Bank spokeswoman said ... Elton John may be known for his prowess on the piano, but he wants to expand into other genres, he told Rolling Stone: He's interested in recording a hip-hop album. Yes, that's right-Elton John wants to record a hip-hop album. "I want to bring my songs and melodies to hip hop beats-a bit like 'No Diggity' by Blackstreet," he told the magazine. For once, we're stunned into silence.

Aaron should have left them each $100, and donated the rest, half each, to women's shelters and animal shelters, both more deserving than these two females.

I think Tori should be given an equal amount as Candy and Randy. She at least worked for a living and still does. Nobody gives Tori the credit she deserves, as an actress or a producer. She has had to deal with scrutiny and criticism her whole life because of her fathers fame. Looks like Candy especially has been just enjoying the $, holmby hills mansion, and jewels her whole life (wasn't she a flight attendant??) and Randy has only appeared on a couple shows years ago, does he even work?
Tori deserves her share of Aarons estate! Regardless of her mothers feelings or bitterness of her split from Charlie.
Get over it! be fair to your daughter.

The tribute is about Aaron Spelling not his fueding family. It's not suppose to be about the money. Aaron is the one who earned that money, NOT CANDY AND NOT TORI. The focus always seems to shift to his money. He was a pioneer in television productions and blazed the trail for others to follow. F*CK his family members. It's not about THEM. I think they need to get over it and find their own way in life. I wouldn't trade places with Candy and all her money for anything. At least my daughter loves me and I can look at myself in the mirror Candy comes off like a money grubbing shallow hag who married Aaron for his $$$$$$$. At least Aaron rasied his daughter to be independant . You have to give Tori some respect for that. There's no law that says when someone dies they have to leave their assests to family members. I

Ol horseface Tori Spelling is a no talent hack and that sorry excuse for a family is the perfect example on how money corrupts. It's great karma though because Spelling polluted the airwaves with trash TV, much like the rest of Hollywood (modern day Babylon), so it's great to see his family become some of the real life soap opera filth he inflicted onto America and the world! Bravo Spelling jackels!

Hopefully, some fat, annoying mid-west housewife won't try to post an e-mail, "ohhh, how could people be so mean when this dear family is in mourning, blah, blah, blah, wahhhh, wahhhh, wahhh!!!!!!"

The caption to that photo would normally read, "a face only a mother could love", but not in this case.

I wonder if "mr ed" got his start on aaron spellings casting couch and tori is the secret love child, which would explain the hate from the wicked widow of the west.
Somebody look into that...

I endorse heartily #'s 1, 3, 4 and 9. The mother is a homely mess, like the schlockmeister she married. As for Tori, that toad is not only totally untalented, she is so f*cking ugly she makes my teeth hurt.

Hey #3...How ignorant you are to think that being jewish has anything to do with this. It is probably safe to assume you agreed with Mel Gibson's thought sas well? Get a life you stupid loser. And for the record, Candy is not Jewish but nice try A-hole!

They are going to have Tori and her mother sit on opposite sides of the auditorium. I would prefer if they sat close to one other just to read what happened tomorrow.

Attention #3: When I commended you on your comment, I meant only the first part, about those two Spelling errors being spoiled, self-absorbed, etc. As for the "very spoiled Jewish women" bullsh*t--and I'm sure sMELly Gibson would be proud of you--are you trying to say that no shicksa is every spoiled. To the best of my knowledge, Paris and Lindsay and all that gut-bucket trash are not daughters of rabbis. You're worse than an anti-Semite. You're an IGNORant anti-Semite. And you're pathetic, to boot. In short, a typical racist Gibsonite.
