Aaron Spelling Dead at 83

I would make a joke here, but it just seems incredibly wrong to be flippant about a man who introduced the world to “Beverly Hills 90201″ and “Melrose Place.”

For God’s sake, I’m not an animal.

Luckily, he and his daughter, Tori Spelling (of course), had a chance to reconcile before his passing. And, he left this world believing her second marriage had a shot in hell at working.

Sheesh. It turns out, I am an animal.

For serious, this is really sad. I don’t want to bring anybody down, but let’s have a moment of silence for the man who brought you Brenda Walsh, in all of her bitchy glory.
