Tori Spelling‘s mother Candy has explained her recent decision to sell the family estate in Los Angeles — putting the move down to fears that she will never again spend time with her estranged daughter.
But mother and daughter are back on frosty terms, and Candy Spelling now has little hope that they will ever salvage their strained relationship.
Spelling admits the most hurtful part of the feud is her estrangement from her grandchildren — because she has never had a chance to meet the latest addition to the family, baby Stella, who was born last year.
And she has put the vast former family home on the market because her young relatives will never be able to enjoy it.
She tells People.com, “I don’t see Tori and Dean anymore. I used to see Liam, but no longer. And I’ve never met Stella. I’ve tried to talk to her (Tori), but that doesn’t work. She may not even know why she’s angry.
“If I had any hope that I would have a relationship with my grandchildren I would never sell this house. I’ve fantasized for years about a wonderful playhouse on the grounds for children.”
Spelling placed the family home in Los Angeles on the market earlier this month for a staggering $150 million. The three-story mansion boasts a bowling alley, wine cellar, library and gym. It is also rumored to include over 100 bedrooms.
