Tori Spelling's mom buys a (HUGE) condo

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.

To Liliana and her comments concerning her mother Candy not speaking to her daughter, Tori. It is so apparent and obvious that number one you cannot read or write well. After being able to adjust to this, I then realize that you have such a narrow mind and no insight into such a situation that you have absolutely no right in posting a comment. Everything is not about money, buying, owning or how many toys you have when you die. You have struck a note with me as I am a "Candy Spelling". I can relate so well and read what she is experiencing. Your posting is poorly written and with no context or understanding of a situation. What is with people having the right to form judgements or criticize? What gives you the right to be prejudice? What gives you the right to be so right and others (Candy Spelling) so wrong. I have a daughter who I have done everything in the world for and love so very much. My daughter has elected NOT to speak to me or have anything to do with me. This is ok, poor thing. But, you let a mom abandon her daughter, give her up for adoption, not speak to her (or take her abuse), not include her in the will and she is a bad person. You have NO IDEA what it feels like to be a victim - a mom who has brought a child into this world and loved, only to have this child NOT accept her mom? You must be perfect and I certainly wish my life were like yours, perfect. I hurt every day and have spent the last eight years wanting to spend time with my daughter who has elected not to even give me the time of day. So, I gave up, I wrote her out of my will - does this make me a bad person? What, a mother has a lifetime committment to beg for their children to speak to them and to get nothing in return? Since when did slavery return? A mother is to submit to slavery essentially to a grown woman? Forget about how much money she has, this is a grown woman who apparently has been rejected by her daughter for whatever reason. So, Candy, if you are reading this, I disagree with Lilian and think that you are entitled to make your own decision concerning your daughter and to also respect HER wishes for you to stay out of her life. It is painful but this is out of your control.

Hi Candy,
I don't know if you remember my father or not, but he certainly knew you guys. I'm writing to say I would think twice about selling that house that you and Aaron built together all those years. I grew up in Frank Capra's 32 room house on No. Barrington and the idea that I cannot ever go there again is just plain wierd. Situations in life change dramatically. In 5 years or maybe 10, everything could be completely different.
Keep a few rooms for yourself and rent it out. It's so huge.

I apologize to Ms. Greshler for the above post. I am sending my message to Nancy.

It's tangible, it's solid, it's beautiful. It's artistic, from my standpoint, and I just love huge condo.

Fantastic Condo, looks amazing, Nice, and I hope Candy is an Obama supporter!
