Tori Spelling is never one to shy away from airing her personal woes on TV — and neither is her mother, Candy!
The 68-year-old, who’s currently promoting her new tell-all Candy At Last, stopped by The Talk Monday to clear up rumors about her daughter and son-in-law Dean McDermott’s financial situation.
In her 2013 book, Spelling Like It Is, the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum allegedly wrote they were in “financial ruin.”
“No. It’s not true,” Candy firmly denied on the show, adding, “She is very successful.” She then went on to list Tori’s best-selling books, fashion lines and reality shows.
The actress blamed her extravagant upbringing for leaving her with few life skills. (Oh, the #FirstWorldProblems of being late TV mogul Aaron Spelling's daughter.)
Candy, who is worth an estimated $600 million, dismissed those claims. “I’d never leave my kids in distress. I’m always there to support her,” she said. “I even bought them a house in Malibu.”
But her help only goes so far. When asked if she’d house Tori and their four kids if her daughter ends up divorcing Dean, she said: “I might buy her an apartment. I don’t have room for four kinds and a daughter.”
Speaking of Dean, their marriage has been in crisis ever since it was reported he cheated on Tori with 28-year-old Emily Goodhand while working in Toronto.
Their marital problems have played out on Lifetime’s True Tori over the past few weeks.
