Aaron Spelling is buried; yes, Tori was there

Aaron SpellingAfter Aaron Spelling had a stroke last week, there were reports circulating that Tori Spelling, instead of rushing to her father's side, was seen roaming Toronto with her new husband, Dean McDermott. In fact, Defamer even reported that after Spelling died on Friday, Tori and Dean were still spotted around "The Canadian New York". Speculation started running rampant that the falling-out Tori had with her parents over her affair and quickie divorce (and the unflattering portrayal of her mother in her show So NoTORIous) was serious. But Tori was likely making arrangements to go to L.A. -- as her brother Randy was, contrary to previous reports that he was at Spelling's side when he died.

Indeed, both Tori and her husband attended Spelling's funeral on Sunday. And Tori made a point of telling the press that the two had reconciled before his stroke. So, let's give Tori a little break; she probably stayed in Toronto because her parents downplayed how serious Aaron's stroke was (or he was seriously ill for a while, and his passing was just a matter of time), then scrambled to get home as soon as she could after receiving word that he died. It happens, you know?

Whatever the logistics, I hope they indeed achieved some sort of closure. It would be sad for any father/daughter to leave things on a bad note.

I would cut her some slack because you can't always be by your loved ones side, but a friend of mine was out at a bar in Toronto on King St. and saw Tori boozing away after 11pm EST. Now perhaps she had just heard the news and was drowning her sorrows, but it seems a touch suspect.

I think alot of Us even knowing that a parent may pass away at any time always feel there is time to go and visit...

I know if happened to me... I was living in L.A. for years and Mom had already passed in the 90's and I didn't get back home to see Dad very much over the years then about 2 and a half years ago something told me I needed to go home... I gave up my job mostly due to "Burn-Out" and moved back to my home state to spend some time and catch up with my Dad... Needless to say I only got 2 and a half years to do it as he passed away from Cancer...

I am grateful for the time I did get because there were alot of things I never knew about him but there was alot I wanted to asked that never got answered...

So to anyone with an older parent take the time to spend with them cause anyone can go at anytime...
