If you were Candy Spelling you'd be home by nowPoor Candy Spelling, rattling around all alone in that 123-room,  56,500-square-foot Holmby Hills house.  Her son has is grown and gone, her daughter's got a hit reality TV show, and with the passing of her husband, TV mogul Aaron Spelling, it's just the pets and jewels and furs and private bowling alley to keep her company.

But stop the pity party -- Tori's mom just plunked down a cool $47 million for the two top floors of this high-rise condo building going up in Century City. Just half the size of her old digs, but with 360-degree views of L.A. Roger Vincent has more details:

Spelling's current home (pictured below) has 11 bedrooms and 16 bathrooms, and then there's the one-lane bowling alley, the gift-wrapping room, a screening room and a doll museum. But what's in store for her new digs is still a question that may tantalize the curious.

This_old_house Building developer Related Cos. of New York said Spelling would work with her own architects and designers to customize her space on the 41st and 42nd floors. But a few of the details have been negotiated.

The lower floor will have a living room with two working fireplaces, a dining room for 25 guests, and staff quarters. The top floor will house the bedrooms including a 4,000-square-foot master suite, a massage room, an exercise room, a conservatory complete with rose garden, and a swimming pool and deck.
