Candy Spelling opens up about Tori's recent hospitalization

Candy Spelling Opens Up About Tori's Recent Hospitalization

Tori Spelling has had her life displayed in the tabloids a lot recently. From her husband Dean McDermott cheating, to their sex issues and her recent hospitalization, the actress has had quite a difficult past few months.


While she has been sharing her real story on her Lifetime reality series "True Tori," ET has a look at the mother-of-four's truth through the eyes of her mother, Candy.

"It's very difficult. when you see a child sick, when you see her in the hospital, with tubes in her arms, that's scary for any parent to see," the 68-year-old revealed to ET about her daughter's six-day hospitalization in late April. "She was totally dehydrated. She wasn't eating. She's very thin. It's just that Tori doesn't eat if she's stressed."

Candy said she even helped feed Tori during her recent hospital stay. "I was feeding her pudding one night, and she's going, 'Oh Mommy, I'm so glad that you're here,'" the 68-year-old said. "I love when she calls me Mommy, because it's always a good thing."

Of course, Tori and Candy's relationship hasn't always been this close. They feuded for years after Candy reportedly blamed Tori for Aaron Spelling's death in 2006, and allegedly made up around Mother's Day in 2010.

Either way, Candy says her life is about much more than Tori. In fact, she has a new memoir, "Candy at Last," in stores May 6th. In the book, she shares what it was like living amongst some of LA's most fascinating people, opens up about her marriage to late-husband Aaron Spelling, and what really went on with her family while her mega-Hollywood producer husband was suffering from Alzheimer's.

In addition to being a published author, Candy can also put successful Broadway producer on her resume. Her latest show, "After Midnight," earning seven Tony nominations, and is her fourth Tony-nominated production. Her three previous works include: "Promises, Promises," "How to Succeed in Business," and "Nice Work If You Can Get It."

There is so much denial about anorexia and bulimia because it is a mental illness and nobody wants to address this. I wonder if she forgets to feed her kids, or gives them extremely small portions of food???

Tori needs to zip it up and get rid of Dean, then back off from dating anyone for a year or so. When she can learn to take care of herself and kids first, then perhaps she will have shed her Drama Queen Life and start dating someone who is not an alcoholic druggie. She needs to confide in her mother, brother and clergy. Lets not forget her therapist.

I am sick of hearing "poor Tori" What goes around comes around. Deans wife went thru the same thing BECAUSE of Tori. He did it once, he was bound to do it again

does it ever occur to anyone that even if someone was brought up filthy rich they may be a nice person and easily hurt just like anyone else, she should kick the husband to the curb , she has some beautiful kids to look after. now that her mother and she have made up he will be looking for the big payoff. get rid of now.

she left her husband for Dean. He left his wife and his child and another child he had JUST adopted.
That is who Tori is

Why is anyone even asking Candy anything about Tori? Don't theu remember the two of them don't have a good relationship? Sounds like Candy is trying to get some sympathy attention.

Thank you, mom disinherited her and left her high and dry, that is when she got involved with Dean and went things went down hill. People have such short memories. Now that Tori is in the headlines, mommy dearest came back in her life and made up.
