Candy

May Net $130 Mil That Tori Won't Get

8/31/2006 9:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


The stakes in the Candy Spelling – Tori Spelling war just got a lot higher. The buzz in Beverly Hills real estate offices is that Candy Spelling has unloaded her 56,000 square-foot Holmby Hills mansion for a cool $130 million, and that the new buyer is an Arab prince.

The cash flow influx would likely fan the flames in the ever-escalating feud. Several well-connected Beverly Hills realtors and a prominent socialite tell TMZ about the swirl of conversation on Wednesday. The inside word is that, as TMZ first reported and as Candy's reps denied, Aaron's widow gave an upscale real estate company a "pocket listing" on the mansion and that her asking price was $150 million.

Now, the buzz is that Candy will quietly walk away with a boatload of cash, which will surely irk the soon-to-be cash-poor Tori. Candy Spelling's rep told TMZ, "It is not true, and she is not selling the house to whoever you have mentioned for the price you have mentioned."

The "90210" star was all but disinherited by her father, as she recently discovered in papers Aaron Spelling signed four months before his death. Tori reportedly will get less than $1 million – a pittance compared to his vast half-billion-dollar estate.

Tori and Candy have been at war with each other for months, clawing it out in the tabloids and elsewhere. And last Sunday, the pair were both present at last Sunday's Emmys, but even the occasion of an emotional tribute to Aaron could not move the mother and daughter any closer to a détente. 



Rosie Says She Won't Look "So Gay" and "Scary" on "View"

Rosie O'Donnell claims she's never cutting her hair again – at least while she's a co-host on "The View" – so she won't frighten viewers with a closely-cropped coif that might be too gay for daytime TV.

In the October issue of Glamour magazine (via The Starr Report), the unabashed gab-queen says that she understands why her recent short haircut might have been problematic for her new gig and that rumors spread that "View" producers asked her to grow it out. "I know people were like, 'It's all right that she's gay, but she doesn't have to look so gay," says O'Donnell. "Trust me – I'm never cutting my hair again. On 'The View,' it will be long and luxurious, not scary."

What might be slightly more scary to her co-hosts is Rosie's evident discomfort with having to share the spotlight, which she's addressed in her blog. "I'm going to try hard not to be bossy," Rosie tells Glamour, "but I've only done ... my own show where you're the total boss of everything!"

Did Scientology Nearly Show Cruise The Money?

When
Tom Cruise got the axe from Paramount Pictures last week and needed funding for his production company, it may have been his beloved Church of Scientology that almost came to the rescue.

According to a source cited by MSNBC's Jeannette Walls, the Church's chieftains told Cruise that if he couldn't find backing elsewhere, they would reach into their deep pockets for their most ardent adherent. Of course, they didn't have to –- Cruise got a two-year financing deal from a group of investors associated with the Six Flags amusement park chain. "Tom has been good to the church," says the source, "and they want to be good to him."

Cruise's reps denied the story and the Church of Scientology had no comment.

Paris Reportedly Asks for $650,000 To Do Radio Show

We knew Paris Hilton valued herself highly – just not exactly how highly. Welsh songbird Charlotte Church says that the lodging heiress wanted $650,000 – the price of a rather nice house in most places in world – to appear on a talk show she's starting.

Church said the idea was to get Paris on the show so that Church could "take the mick out" – make fun, in Brit-speak – of Hilton because she's "such a complete airhead," according to MSNBC. But after Hilton demanded the crazy sum, Church ditched the idea, saying, "She's hardly going to announce anything world-changing, is she?"

Meanwhile, someone alert Matt and Jake – Paris has started hanging with Lance Armstrong, according to Page Six. The pair showed up at LA's Key club on Tuesday night to catch a show by the band The Vacation, and then left together.

Party Favors: Mariah Gets Blinged Out By Bruneian Prince, K-Fed Gets Record Deal, Knoxville Gets Sent to Mars By Willie Nelson

Before her New York concert last week, Mariah Carey was delighted to find a $4 million diamond surprise in her dressing room – an 8-carat diamond and platinum necklace and matching ring from the son of the Sultan of Brunei, who apparently is smitten with the diva. Carey, unfortunately for Prince Azim, is taken, as Page Six notes ... Kevin Federline has apparently weathered the critical drubbing he took after his Teen Choice Awards performance to get a record distribution deal from Sony BMG, as announced Wednesday. Of course, it probably doesn't hurt that his wife Britney is one of the company's top earners ... "Jackass" star Johnny Knoxville, not generally known for his prudence and careful consideration, actually regrets doing something: As he tells Playboy magazine (via Rush & Molloy), he once smoked pot with country legend Willie Nelson and got so high that he called Nelson the next day and said, "'Thanks a lot, Willie. I was on [bleeping] Mars for six hours.' Nothing could have made him any happier."

This is not about money. This is about woman that gave birth to a child. Candy Spelling gives the word "mother" a bad name. She needs to grow up, what is she 12? mentally. Someone needs to remind Candy what mother means and that love is unconditional. I know some will say well Tori is to blame also. Not really. Candy is the mother, Tori is the daughter. When Candy decided to have this child it was for a life time commitment, not for her to be a mother at her convenience. I have to side with Tori. Candy is just one mean lady.

WHO CARES ABOUT TORI SPELLING? SHE STILL HAS MORE MONEY THAN THE AVERAGE HARD WORKING SCMUCK WORKING A 9-5 JOB. SHE SHOULD BE GRATEFUL FOR WHAT SHE HAS AND TRY AND LIVE HER LIFE WITHIN A SOMEWHAT NORMAL LIFESTYLE, JUST LIKE THE REST OF US.

yes I am sure she is well taken care of. come on she can not be poor as being reported. If she is not on welfare she is not poor. so until she is standing in the food stamp line. leave her alone. the press is trying to make something out of nothing just to keep selling papers but that is what reporting is all about. keep the interest of the readers and sell more.

First, regardless if she is poor or not, I belive that she should get a third of her father's estate. Think about it people; regardless of how much money you have in the bank; if your father dies and leavs about about 500 million dollars, wouldn't you won't some of that. Secound, on the other hand its interesting to think that Tori Spelling has to work for a living is refreshing. you know I bet you all along she thought that she had money coming to her but now she is pinicing.

At least Tori works, when is the last time we saw Candy or Randy doing something either work or charity? She'll be fine; I think the girl inherited her work ethic from her dad. She doesn't need his money. She just feels hurt, but it's probably this biggest favor in the long run he could have done for her.

A man is dead and all these people can think about is who is going to net the biggest portion of his assets? Sad............and peculiar how quickly this family seemed to get over his passing!

How do you know how much Tori will get ? Are you her personal accountant ?? I love how peopel come on here and act like they have some exclusive first hand knowledge of what goes on in these people's lives. Just because you stay up their butt 24/7 for the past 10yrs does not make you any closer to being their buddy. Get a life... a real one.

I am sickened by mother and daughter feuding over a dead man's lot....

It is callous, shallow and it shows a person's true colors. I hope the mother is outcast by society for her deplorable behaviour toward her daughter. Not just the money thing, but in general....

I'm sorry for Tori. She's lost both parents.

Amen Deanne - This is ridiculous. I'm the schmuck who works 9-5 every day and I'll take Tori's "poor" anyday! When the day comes that she is scraping change together a day before payday, just to put gas in her car to get to work, then I'll know she is broke! Then I'll be able to be sympathetic.
