Aaron Spelling is buried; yes, Tori was there

by Joel Keller, posted Jun 26th 2006 10:07PM
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?

TV producer Aaron Spelling suffers stroke

by Richard Keller, posted Jun 21st 2006 10:51PM

Aaron SpellingTelevision producer Aaron Spelling, who has worked in some capacity on nearly 200 productions, suffered a stroke over this past weekend.  According to spokesman Kevin Sasaki, the 83-year-old Spelling, who has produced such hits as Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose Place, Charmed and 7th Heaven, was briefly hospitalized. Sasaki did not know the extent of damage the stroke caused; however, he said that the fact he was released from the hospital was a good sign.

If you have watched a television show anytime during your life you have probably seen a show that Aaron Spelling had a hand in. He has produced a number of nighttime soaps including Dynasty, Family, The Colbys, Summerland and Twin Peaks (he co-produced the series). He also produced a number of crime dramas such as Starsky & Hutch, T.J. Hooker, The Mod Squad, and Burke's Law. During the 1970's, his mark could be found on ABC with the hits Charlie's Angels, The Love Boat, Vega$, and Fantasy Island. Needless to say, an extremely impressive resume.

Spelling is the father of actor Tori Spelling, who appeared in Beverly Hills 90210, and Randy Spelling

Mother, May I Sleep With Dean McDermott?

by Bob Sassone, posted May 7th 2006 3:21PM
McDermott and SpellingTori Spelling got married this weekend to actor Dean McDermott, on a private island in Fiji.

First of all, who the hell has a private island? I mean, a private island? If I want to go to my local beach, I have to pay $10 just to park the car. And second, the article says that they were the only two people who attended the wedding. Um, there was a minister or justice of the peace too, right?

Spelling and McDermott met a few years ago on the set of the movie Mind Over Murder.

So, are you going to watch Tori Spelling's new show?

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 30th 2006 12:11PM
Tori SpellingI'll admit it: I've never taken Tori Spelling seriously. She just seemed like that girl who was the daughter of Aaron Spelling, on a TV show (Beverly Hills, 90210) that lasted way too long, and star of many lame TV movies, including one with the great title of Mother, May I Sleep With Danger? But now she's back with a new show, So Notorious, on VH-1, and it looks like she's poking fun at herself non-stop.

True, it might be one of those situations where, at this point in her career, the only thing she can do is do a show where she mocks herself. But still, I'm going to check it out (it premieres this Sunday at 10). Are you going to watch?

Aaron Spelling sued by ex-nurse

by Keith McDuffee, posted Jan 29th 2006 10:23PM
aaron spelling burnsA nurse once employed by Aaron Spelling is suing the multi-millionaire for sexual harrasment, claiming he made advances toward her during her time at his home. She's also claiming he was performing some other, er, "inappropriate behavior." Inappropriate behavior? Oh dear God, please don't tell me he's thinking of doing something like bringing back 90210!

And as far as the image to the right goes . . . is it just me?

Coming to VH1: Tori Spelling as herself

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 12th 2006 5:31PM
VH1 picked up a comedy series starring Tori Spelling as a fictionalized version of herself. Previously, NBC passed on the show. It's the most expensive project VH1 has taken on but network execs say "it was a risk we were happy to take." Tori created the show because she got tired of going on auditions for parts that were all very similar to her character, Donna, on 90210, or similar to her real-life story of riches. So, she decided to embrace her real life and even poke fun at it a little. In the pilot of her new show, called So NoTORIous, Spelling moves out of her family mansion and into a condo, which happens to be next door to Farrah Fawcett. Yes, the real Farrah appears in the pilot. And so does Loni Anderson, who plays her mother. So NoTORIous premieres on VH1 on April 2.
