According to various reports, Tori Spelling's plans for a tribute to her late father have been nixed by her mother.
Candy Spelling apparently refused to release clips of Aaron Spelling's work for a tribute show -- when she found out Tori would be presenting it!
The project, documenting the work of the legendary TV producer who died in June, has now been dropped by TV network ABC. A source was quoted by People magazine as saying: "All of Aaron's stars had signed on and some interviews had already been taped. But Candy wouldn't release the clips of his shows because Tori was involved in the project." Tori had planned to be the host and executive producer of the show.
The mother and daughter have had a strained relationship for years, but it has become worse since the 83-year-old producer died after a lengthy illness. He gained fame -- and remarkable wealth -- for creating the shows 'Love Boat',' Charlie's Angels', 'Dynasty' and 'Beverly Hills, 90210'.
A spokesman for Candy Spelling said: "She talked to ABC about releasing the clips for the tribute but she didn't feel the timing was right, since the Emmys were doing a big tribute to her husband around the same time.
"She had nothing to do with this except that she was asked to release the clips and she didn't think it was the right time, so she turned them down."
