Tori Spelling Has Reconciled With Father
While Tori Spelling has reconciled with her ill father (he had a stroke one week after the reconciliaition), she is still estranged from her mother Candy Spelling. The rift began when Tori split from her husband Charlie Shanian after 15 months of marriage, and escalated after Tori basically made a fool out of her mother on her VH1 show NoTORIus. Candy was said to be out of town when Tori brought her husband Dean McDermott home to meet her father for the first time.
On June 11, Tori visited her father at his Beverly Hills mansion for the first time in nine months and introduced him to her new husband, Dean McDermott.
She explains, “I’m so over-the-moon that Dean and my dad finally met.” The teary reunion was prompted by her father’s ill health and helped along by Tori’s brother, Randy.
Tori adds, “It’s sad that my mother and I have the relationship we do, but you can’t pick your family. “I lost the last nine months of time with my dad because of the circumstances with my mom.”
Tori says of the reunion with her father, “It was as if a day hadn’t gone by since we saw each other.”
