In ‘Candy at Last,’ Candy Spelling tells-all about her tumultuous relationship with her daughter, saying she first met Tori’s husband, Dean McDermott, at Aaron’s funeral.
Candy Spelling says she didn’t meet daughter Tori’s current husband, Dean McDermott, until the death of husband Aaron.
The memoir covers her often-fractured relationship with daughter Tori and explains Candy’s side of the story. She claims Tori cut off communication soon after her first daughter’s marriage to Charlie Shanian. Candy and Aaron then discovered the pair were filming a VH1 series loosely based on Tori’s childhood, which infuriated her parents.
The first time Candy met Tori’s current husband, Dean McDermott, was at Aaron’s funeral, creating an awkward tension. It wasn’t until the birth of Tori’s first child, Liam, that they healed the rift. She admits they have “never discussed that painful period in our lives when we didn’t speak. We just tried carefully to move past it.”
She also reveals in her new book, “Candy at Last,” that she started dating a man named Larry after her husband died in 2006 at 83, but struggled with sleep deprivation on account of Larry’s penile implant.
“My bionic man could go on for five or six hours, and there is no woman, middle-aged or otherwise, who wants to have sex for that long,” she writes. “It was like running a marathon.”
She broke up with Mr. “Pump and Dump,” because he was “getting too attached,” and she just couldn’t stand “those six-hour romps anymore.”
Candy also sets the record straight on Tori’s supposed disinheritance from her father’s will. “What nobody knew was that both Tori and (brother) Randy had already received disbursements from a trust while Aaron was still alive,” she writes, adding that she has established college funds for her six grandchildren.
