Tori Spelling appears on the cover of this week's US Weekly and says that she learned of her father's death via Blackberry. Tori tells the magazine that she was out to dinner with her husband when she got an email from a friend that said, ‘I’m so sorry. I just heard your father died.’ OUCH. It appears mama Candy Spelling did not have the heart to call Tori and tell her that her father had died. Some may ask, "well, why wasn't she there after he had a stroke the week prior?" According to Tori, she knew her father had a stroke but was unaware that he was near death and the severity of how ill he actually was. Tori said that she had the opportunity to speak with her father a couple days before he died and tells US, “The last words he spoke to me were over the phone a couple of days before he passed.” “He said, ‘I love you, babe.’ ”
But the best part of the interview is that Tori reportedly says that the rift between she and her mother was caused because Candy had been spending time with a "Beverly Hills business man." Uh oh! Someone has ratted dear Candy out! Um, I hate to say it with her father dying and all, but, what the hell..."like mother like daughter," no?
