Tori's Ex Spills Spelling Secrets

9/13/2006 5:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie ShanianBeing married to Tori Spelling comes with many perks, one of them being privy to intimate details about the Spelling household.

Charlie Shanian, the first Mr. Tori Spelling, is breaking his silence to "The Dr. Keith Ablow Show" and opening up about his high profile marriage and his ex-wife's relationship with her parents, Aaron and Candy Spelling.

Charlie reveals to the syndicated talk show that Candy told him if he didn't sign the pre-nuptial agreement the invitations to the wedding would not go out in the mail.

Shanian admits the bad blood between Tori and Candy existed even prior to their wedding in 2004. Charlie claims that after asking the Spellings for their blessing to marry Tori, Candy and Aaron proceeded to tell him what a terrible daughter she was. "They said how selfish she was and how she needed therapy really badly and she was just horrible to her parents."

Shanian also claims Aaron would tell Tori "I love you best, even more than mommy," which would pit Candy and Tori against each other in a competition for Aaron's affection.

Since Aaron's death in June, Candy and Tori have been involved in a nasty inheritance battle.

Charlie and Tori divorced in April 2006. The following month Tori married Canadian actor Dean McDermott.

Charlie Shanian's interview airs Thursday on "The Keith Ablow Show."

As usual.....................WHO CARES about any of this shiez? Seriously! Ok so you were married to Tori...................more like TORI WHO now days. She isnt doing anything, she looks nasty and her fake boobs look like they are going to swallow her head any minute now. The ONLY reason why Tori is back "In the spotlight" if you will, is because of her father's passing. Can we move on to something more interesting nowdays? Who cares how much money her or her mom get. Its not a big freakin' deal............its not going to change any of our lives at all ;-)

If it walks like a ho, talks like a ho, and acts like a ho, she's a ho with a capital H. How dare Candy Spelling intimidate her future son-in-law that way.

Maybe she was jealous because Aaron loved Tori more that that old bitch. She should just continue to shrivel up and die.

Any mother who talks that way about her daughter is NUTS!

Somebody should kill Candy to put her out of her misery. She is a washed-up old douch bag who treats her daughter like shit. What is she jealous of Tori being young.

If TORI doesn't have much money of her own, and DADDY DIDN'T LEAVE HER ANY. Then what's the big deal with the pre-nup thing ? It doesn't make sense.

For sure if this guy had to sign a pre-nup then the guy she is married to now must have had to sign one too. I wasn't aware that someone's mother could forse someone to sign as opposed to the person that is getting married. The whole thing sounds very strange

Charlie, it's tacky to kiss and tell. If you have any of Tori's loot ... spend it on a class in etiquette.

Well once thing is for sure,Tori Spelling isn't stupid if she made this jerk sign a pre-nup.
And from his behavior now, why are we surprised she dumped him.
And Tori's mother is upset that Tori got out of that marriage? Is Candy Spelling crazy?
