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."

shame on both mother and daughter to air their dirty linen in public. The only one who earned this money is Aaron Spelling...these two bitches are lucky to have been in his company. As to Candy I have no respect for this tart. How can she treat her daughter like this. Has she ever heard of forgiving. This is a time to reflect. love the man who made all the money for them to enjoy..Disgusting both of them..they should hang their heads in shame to do this to his memory

What's the matter Tori? Daddy died and you have no one to pay your bills? Get over it rich girl, wake up and deal with it. You should be rolling in dough from all those horrific episodes of 90210, not to mention your second rate made for TV movies appearances on Lifetime. Grow up you spoiled little brat!!!!!

All I can say is, "What shall it profit someone if they gain the whole world and lose their own soul" There is more important things in life than millions of dollars.. Tori will get by ok in this life. Mike

Right now Candy Spelling has every right to force Tori out of Daddy's will. However, when Candy bites the dust, so to speak, Tori has every right to half of all of that money (of course the other half goes to dorky brother Randy)!! Don't worry Tori; Mommy isn't going to last forever.. Hey I have an idea, Tori: Why don't you do a scene directly out of one of your "fluffy" Lifetime Movies, and have Mommy killed by someone that you hire? Or, maybe have Momma Candy have a fatal gardening accident?? Who knows Tori? The choices are unlimited!! Anyway, you really can't be that hard up for money Tori, could you? You did have a beefy part on Beverly Hills 90210, for several years, as virginal Donna...Boy was that character far from your own persona!! Well, good luck Tori with everything.. Your marriage to the man you stole from his wife, etc, etc..

Why such a media fuss over nothing much? Usually children don't inherit anything until both parents are dead. Spouses don't pay probate tax. He probably changed his will to give Tori something after the estate tax laws were changed so that you can inherit less than a million without paying taxes. Nothing unusual happened here.

I feel sorry for Tori in a sense. Everything she has ever know growing up in a home such as the Spelling home is now gone. Including her beloved father and her obviously jealous mother. She has been conditioned by her environment and culture to be a certain way and now needs to change that. I have no doubt she will, but she needs to be left alone to do it. Jealousy over money, success, or who a person is, is just petty and quite frankly, sad. Don't we have more inportant things to worry about with the economy and environmental issues, that will affect our children, than whether or not the Spelling family gets their act together???

IT'S SOOO SAD THAT MONEY BREAKS UP A FAMILY. I JUST FOUND OUT ABOUT THIS FEUD TODAY. THAT GOES TO SHOW YOU HOW MUCH I COULD CARE ABOUT THESE 90210 PEOPLE. IF I HAD A DROP OF WHAT BOTH MOTHER AND DAUGHTER HAD TO LIVE ON, I WOULD BE GRATEFUL. MONEY DOES NOT MAKE PEOPLE HAPPY. PEOPLE WITH MONEY ARE THE MOST UNHAPPY PEOPLE THAT I KNOW BECAUSE MOST OF THEM HAVE NOTHING TO THRIVE FOR AND NOTHING REALLY GREAT TO LOOK FORWARD TO. THEY SHOULD BE OUT HELPING OTHERS INSTEAD OF BEING STUCK ON THEMSELVES. BOTH OF THEM WILL LEAVE THIS WORLD WITH NOTHING ANYWAY 'CAUSE YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU!!

Her brother seems to be very close to Mom. Is that because she holds the bulk of the cash or is it true "I love my Mom". I think he is going to get what he can and split. I am not crazy about Tori but at least she has more balls then her brother to stand up to Mommie Dearest. Hell, Spelling should have taken the money with him, it would have blown their minds.
