Candy to Paris -- Spoiled Brat, Grow Up!

5/13/2007 9:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Candy Spelling (Tori's mom) sent TMZ an open letter to Paris Hilton. Yes, it really is Candy!

Dear Paris,

As someone who has known you for most of your life, I pay special attention to your press coverage. (Apparently, I'm not alone, based on the responses every word about you creates on TMZ.com and elsewhere.)

Paris, I'm very worried about you. The last week has not only been an obvious roller-coaster for you emotionally, but your strategy went from blaming employees and stating silly excuses like, "I don't read," to your new lawyer's tactic to have you sound mature and take some responsibility. In between, the paparazzi continue to follow you shopping and taking self-defense classes (to protect yourself in jail?), and some over-zealous friends staged embarrassing protests (three people?), and wasted taxpayer funds with a petition to pardon you.

People who are rich and famous are not treated like "regular" people, even though you claim to now be just like everyone else. In most situations, your privileged life works to your benefit. You have opportunities, access and resources like few others; and frankly, you can get away with more bad behavior and excuses than most people could even imagine. However, as the real possibility of jail approaches -- whether it's 21 days or 45 or whatever the latest report is -- it's time to get real. It's time to find "a Paris" somewhere between "heiress" and a character on "The Simple Life." I know she's there, and I know she can be a good citizen and maturely face consequences other people would have to face under the same circumstances.

I am sorry you have been sentenced to jail. I can't think of too much that would be worse. But since you let this happen, use the next couple of weeks preparing not only by publicly learning to fight (not a good message to fellow inmates), but by looking around, realizing that you are not as truly entitled as your money implies. You are a young woman who can add more to her community than establishing new definitions for infamy.

Paris at her best: click to launch galleryBest,

Candy Spelling

I hope the letter is real. I've been a little bored lately and would love the entertainment this bling-a-palooza would start.

Candy Spelling is the ho bag who didn't tell her daughter, Torii Spelling, that her father had died. Candy is the most despicable mom in showbiz (sorry Dena Lohan) and should keep her fat, golddigging mouth shut.

Are you kidding me? I can think of a whole lot worse! Umm... let's see, she could have been seriously injured or died, worse yet, she could have harmed or killed someone else. Let's get real here. Paris just needs to suck it up, take responsibility and grow the hell up!

Maybe if Paris had had some parenting this would of have some impact on her. Since both her parents are drug abusing fools that allowed the chamber maids to care for ALL THREE of their children from birth to wilding in the streets, we will see more of this and look out mothers Paris has a younger un parented brother waiting to mess up your daughters with out liability.

Kevin,

You are a bleeding heart whiny liberal ass hole that thinks everyone owes you. I hate the ground that Hilton bitch walks on but she has the right to do what ever the hell she wants to with her money. You would know what I am talking about if you had a job.

They about to get paid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    

well said,whether she listens to advice is anybodys guess,jail is not so bad,10-45 days is a wald in the park if you kill someone,so act like a lady and do the right thing,its not death,and it might seem that way,I know it will be hard to go wiyhout sex for so maney days ,and drinking might be harder ,but it not the end of the world,10- 45 days wont be bad,just use your middle finger to pleasure your self and when you get out , find a guy that will bang you like you was in jail for years,any bum on the corner would do the job

Candy Spelling's letter was all it could be - It was outstanding advice.

My take on Super Rich Paris Hilton - she never had caring advice.

I've NEVER heard Paris's father SPEAK - my take is he seems to be led around by the hand by his "wife" . Does a caretaker DRESS HIM ? Didn't his "wife" take him recently to the Max Factor Center - MONEY is helpful - but Candy Spelling 's advice was more valuable to the Hiltons - than plastic surgery .

Paris' mom - my take .... she screemed to the press following release of a Paris sex video - "SHE's A STAR and CAN DO WHATEVER SHE WANTS" Then, Paris' mom in court yelled out at the Prosecutor and - - - - didn't she tell the Judge he was PATHETIC ?

Paris is very fortunate to have Candy Spelling take her time and energy to try to HELP Paris when Paris needed it most . And - mama and papa Hilton would benefit also.

Is this Candy's new career? Oh...a new letter has just appeared in her TMZ mailbox.

Dear Candy:

I think that after your long estrangement from me, which only resulted in us speaking when my child was about to be born, you have a lot of nerve telling others how to run their lives when you did a crappy job on MY head.

Keep up this "Dear nonsense, and we won't let you near Liam.

Love,
Tori

#21 "HATER" your name says it all....
I don't think Paris Hilton "OWES ME" a thing.....NOT A -THING...
But as stated in "CANDY'S LETTER" she does owe it to herself to "be a good citizen", and maybe, just maybe HELP OTHERS ASS WIPE!!!
But ya see, this is the problem, with those individuals that HAVE GREAT WEALTH, and only use it for "SENSUAL PLEASURES", and makes "Devils" like you...say stupid things like you just stated....
I have a job...I own the second largest TV station in the North East Caribbean.....WHAT DO YOU HAVE...? other than a very lame opinion???LOL ;-)
I don't have the throw around $$$ that Paris Hilton has, but I do my part to help others, when I can. If that makes me a "Liberal asshole" in your mind, then SO BE IT.....
But again, the truth is the TRUTH HATER...and YOU, like HER, WILL have to stand before the Lord and give an account of your life.....Pick up a bible sometime and read it, if you can read?
And that's a FACT that neither you nor Paris can deny....You MAY NOT believe it, but it is NO LESS A FACT! It's unfortunate that you will only find this out when that day comes...in the mean time, KEEP "HATING"....
Kisses...

IF that letter was written by Candy Spelling, I applaud the effort. However, IF theres a mom who should post a letter its Ivana Trump. She's from the wealthy clan of people who has class & when do you hear of her family in a negative way? IVANA-CALL THE HILTONS! THEY NEED YOUR HELP!

You see, I don't agree. While I think it's great that Paris has to go to jail like any other person would have had to, I don't think she'll ever be a mature, giving person. Her actions and comments ( as well as her mother's comments) in the hours and days after the verdict clearly indicate otherwise. I'm just really sorry Paris has become some sort of public figure impressionalble young girls look at, be it for a good laugh or be it for fashion guidance. YUK!
