As much as I hope that I'll see a Tori Spelling and Candy Spelling reunion on Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, I have a feeling it may never happen (unless, perhaps, ratings are down?).
After Tori published her tell-all, sTori Telling, her mom Candy decided to write her own story. Then, of course, Tori realized she had even more to tell, so she wrote a follow-up as well.
So, here's the scoop. Originally, Candy's book, Stories from Candyland, was set to launch on April 14. Then the premiere of Tori's book, Mommywood, was mysteriously moved to that same day. Her rep said, "[They] moved the book due to Mother's Day promotions at retailers. It had nothing to do with Candy's release date." Really?
Well, Candy wasn't having it, and she's now moved her book release up two weeks, to March 31, so that the two books' sales won't compete.
Candy also made sure to point out that she hasn't -- and won't -- read Tori's books.
"I never read her first one because my friends and family advised me against it," Candy said. "They said it would hurt my feelings, so I decided to pass. I won't read her new one either."
Though, Candy does like to think she's taking the high road. "I can assure you, however, that if Tori were to read my book, she wouldn't be hurt at all, and, in fact, it might bring back some wonderful memories from her childhood," Candy said. "Memories that I cherish and that's why I wrote about them."
Will you read either of the books? I have to admit that I recently borrowed sTori Telling from the library and I kind of loved it. It wasn't a literary masterpiece, but it sure was a fun read.
