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."

Tori is acting like a spoiled little brat whom know has lttle money to show for. She just needs to start acting like a celebrity and not act like a b****. Whom poor daddy dearest left her with less than a million dollars. She should be happy she even got anything from him.

You know, it's all pathetic. When a man dies, of COURSE his WIFE should get all the assets. I mean, she's still alive. When the wife dies is when the rest of the estate is up for grabs.

Tori was on 90210 for like 11 years and didn't save a single penny that whole time?? Bull. The fact that she's carping about money at all sickens me - she's richer than most people can even dream of.

More power to you, Candy! It's your money, do what you want with it.

Candy is just a jealous old biddy. She lost her looks, if she ever had them, a long time ago. I am not a Tori fan, by no means, but that girl loved her father. Living with Candy for so long, that is probable why Tori is so screwed up. So Tori left her first husband for another man. At least she got a divorce and was not sneaking behind his back like Candy did.

Tori, you father taught you to do what you love to do. If you hate that bitch of a mother, hate her, but you can make it on your own.

Remember, Tori is a "Jewish Princess" so she can't make it on just a few million.

How fortunate we all are. Apparently, we can read, think, spell (for the most part) and have the luxury of a computer at our disposal. Perhaps the rich aren't really rich. Remember, average people are crazy, the rich are eccentric. I hope Tori's loving husband is as devoted to her as he was to his last wife . It will only be a matter of time before he drops all of his photo ops, throws his full support behind his bereaved wife and lands a full time, real job to support them.

This isn't about money....it's about a mother and daughter who are not speaking. This is the most troubling aspect to me because what Mother would refuse to not speak to her child? Children disappoint us sometimes but you take the bad with the good. There should be unconditional love for a child....after all Candy, you gave birth to Tori.

Grow up!

uhhuh    

My children are my all, and I don't care how much money my husband left me or how angry I got at them I would never do to them what this sorry excuse for a mother is doing to Tori. Shame on her. Even if Candy gave her $100 million it would not make a DENT in her vast BILLION DOLLAR fortune. How greedy. Aaron Spelling would be turning in his grave if he could see what is happening. Then again .... perhaps he is.
