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."

Sorry but I can't feel sorry for Tori S. I live in Washington state and we are a community property state. So whichever spouse dies first , the other spouse gets it ALL. That's how it should be. My children did not contribute to our estate so why should they get any until both of us are dead. It would be different if Candy was Tori's stepmother but she's not. So the media is making more of this then they should.

This real life scenario has been a long time in the making, I mean after all, nearly every role that Tori has played has been produced by her father ! Everytime I`ve ever noticed her in any type of television movie she is always playing a character designed for her, some type of phsychotic sicko destined for doom. So while some of you may shed a tear for her,......remember, she got what was coming to her, after all, she was born into it ! Thank you,......thank you very much !

Your comments: Daddy Spelling isn't guiltless here.
He was within driving distance
of lots of competent experienced Beverly Hills "7-figure club" attorneys
and he didn't bother to set things up right befoe he died? I expected he would have had a complicated intricate web of trusts, revocable
trusts, living will and he could also have had Lori holding a
mortgage for her portion on the house to guarantee her share when MOM sold
it or recprded the deed as 'tenants in common'.. I can't believe he dropped so many balls. No, this can't be right. We probably don't know any more than the IRS is allowed to know via public record. He was too smart for this. I suspect this feud is even a prearranged act. Really, now. He didn't get to his place in life by being stupid.

I think that we all need to say a prayer for Tori and Candy. It's so sad that they ae wasting all of this time fighting eachother when they should be mourning the loss of a wonderful man. God Bless that family because they need it.

Rosie is scary in and of herself, so I don't think she will be able to hide her scariness, as she claims. Her hair might help her look softer, but that loud voice will eventually win out and how can she help herself from being so bossy? I don't think she will work out on that show. The show is going downhill, anyway. It should just wave the white flag and go off the air, because people can't understand what is being said anyway, with all that clacking over and above one another.

The only real reason Tori's Mama is cutting her out of the money party is to pay for the big nasty ugly stick Tori got beaten with when she was born. YuK! Aaron Spelling will be missed. He was the best of his profession. Unfortunately, his so-called daughter is nothing but a spoiled rotten brat who throws tantrums when she doesn't get her way. Typical Hollywood brat. I hope she doesn't get a dime. She certainly doesn't deserve any of it. She doesn't even deserve to have the much-honored surname she bears.

i feel bad for Tori. She just lost her father. Her mother shouldn't be behaving that way towards her. Money is the root of all evil. But, it shouldn't be an issue between a mother/father and their children. (family) I feel bad for her. Although I am someone that does scrape change together before payday to put gas in my car and come up with a buck for a cheeseburger before payday. I am as poor as poor can be. But, I still see her side.
