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

TROLL SMASHERS    

BOY BOY BOY - I GUESS IT'S TIME FOR THE LATEST EDITION OF POT CALLS KETTLE BLACK - KEVIN

I READ YOUR HEARTFELT POST ABOUT WHAT THE WEALTHY SHOULD DO WITH THEIR MONEY/OR FACE THE WRATH...

THEN, I FOLLOWED YOUR LINK, EXPECTING TO SEE MUCH ABOUT CHARITY, MUCH ABOUT CHANGING THE WORLD, MUCH ABOUT HELPING YOUR FELLOW MAN WITH YOUR RESOURCES....

BUT WHAT I FOUND DURING MY VISIT TO YOUR OZ, WAS THAT YOU THE WIZZARD HAVE NOTHING LIKE THAT ON YOUR TV STATION PAGE -

TV STATION WITH A DO-GOODER RUNNING THE WEBSITE BUT NO MENTION OF THE LAST 4 AMBER ALERTS THAT HAVE GONE OUT IN THE LAST 2 MONTHS, NO MENTION OF WHERE ONE COULD DONATE TO A SCHOOL SOMEWHERE IN NEED OF FUNDS, NO MENTION OF HOW TEENS CAN LEARN ABOUT THE DANGERS OF DRINKING AND DRIVING, NOTHING BUT A COOKING SHOW AND A V.I.P INTERVIEWS SECTION...

AND

YOU DO HAVE SPONSORS, (COMPANIES PAYING YOU MONEY TO SHOW THEIR ADS ON YOUR PAGE) WAIT-WHAT KIND OF SPONSORS??? LIQUOR!!

BUT I'M SURE THERE'S A PAGE SOMEWHERE ON YOUR SITE THAT SHOWS US ALL HOW MUCH YOU AND YOUR COMPANY HAVE DONATED TO CHARITY -

I JUST COULDN'T FIND IT.

I hope she is starting to treat her OWN daughter better than she once did. I think Tori Spelling reacted well to the disinheritment of her fathers money by her mother. She is setting up her own business....good for her...Candy Spelling looks a greedy type and is really not in a position to give advice to other peoples daughters when she treated her own so badly. She didn't even tell Tori when her father had died......C'mon !

Re: #46 I agree with you.
Speaking of Naomi Campbell, What she did was worse then Paris. She hurt someone.She didn't go to Jail. At lease take the cell phone away from her

blackberry_curve is a TRANNY!    

I feel that something positive is going to come out of this for everyone I believe without going to jail, Paris can use this experience to do something to bring awareness to the dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol.

BELIEVE.

If this letter is legite, then I say a jobe well done. At least someone else with money, isnt always going to stroke the other rich persons back.

Candy, has raised two great kids, who are of very sound mind. She also managed to stay married to the same man for more then 30 years, which is a miracle in Hollywood.

Paris, is an idiot! The girl has made millions off of her show that makes fun at average people and the work they do. She has gained fame from doing porn-tapes, and sleeping with any and every guy she claims. The girl is really ugly as hell, but has managed to have some believe she is "hot."

I think more influential(money) people need to step-up and tell her what a dolt she is. Paris, and her kind dont listen, respond to everyday people. They (we) are below her. This is why she never enroleed for her drunk driving class that was mandated by the courts. Everyday life, people, are below her.

This girl is a waste of air-space.

I TOLD YOU HOWARD IS THE ONLY ONE ACTING WITH DIGNITY IN THIS MESS    

Now Lindsay Lohan will have the last laugh on stupid buttless Pariah Hilton. Linday has all that natural beauty, hair, face, body and overall talent. Paris feet are disgasting, no breast, no ass, noose job looks fake, hair is fake and the attitude is fake and nasty. Linday Lohan is a real person. Hellooooooooooooo!!! Dont worry Paris orange is your color.

Finally - responsible, no-nonsense advice to Paris from an articulate, reality-based woman who fully understands Paris' situation. Kudos to Candy - hopefully Paris will heed her comments and considerable insight.

Oh good one you are so tied-down and so miserable    

She seems real.
She has been through alot and is pretty smart about life.

Paris needs to be told the truth and not only what she wants to hear.

thanks candy

Candy, took the time to write because she is also a mother and cares about Paris.

Good letter Candy, you will make your daughter proud.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
