Tabloid Whore!



Oh this is so sad! Legendary television Producer Aaron Spelling (83) died in his home at 6:30pm due to complications from the stroke he had suffered Sunday. His wife Candy and son Randy were reportedly by his side at the time of his death. It doesn't sound like daughter Tori was there, but thank God she made peace with him before he died. That would have been horrible for her if she hadn't. Although she reportedly made a statement soon after Spelling's stroke saying she and husband Dean McDermott were planning to leave Canada and return to Los Angeles to be by her fathers side, Lainey's Entertainment Update reports that Tori "was STILL in Toronto, walking hand in hand with McDermott down Cumberland Avenue" as of 1pm EST today. Oh jeez.

This is a sad moment for people such as myself who hold a fine appreciation for all that is television. Spelling was indeed an icon of that medium and the boob tube wont be the same without the guy. Rest in peace Mr. Spelling.

LOS ANGELES - Aaron Spelling, a onetime movie bit player who created a massive number of hit series, from the vintage "Charlie's Angels" and "Dynasty" to "Beverly Hills 90210" and "Melrose Place," died Friday, his publicist said. He was 83. Spelling's other hit series included "Love Boat," "Fantasy Island," "Burke's Law," "The Mod Squad," "Starsky and Hutch," "T.J. Hooker," "Matt Houston," "Hart to Hart" and "Hotel." He kept his hand in 21st-century TV with series including "7th Heaven" and "Summerland."

Uh, oh. Tori's starting to seem more and more narcisstic. Granted, I have no idea what her relationship w/her father was like, but this still doean't look good. It comes right on the heels of her bad-mouthing Dean's ex. I wonder if she'll get waves of negative press like Britney?

Spelling just gave us so many hours of television. He literally helped shape a couple or so decades. Big shoulder pads. Melrose vixens. Wealthy kids in the right zip code. Maybe one of the channels will run a marathon of all his shows.
