Spelling, 63, is also one of Tinseltown's most famous Hollywood Widows, whose gazillionaire producer .

Spelling, 63, is also one of Tinseltown's most famous Hollywood Widows, whose gazillionaire producer husband Aaron Spelling died of a stroke in 2006. She was the quintessential Hollywood trophy wife and proud of it. Many of Nolan Miller's clothes on Dynasty were based on her taste, and she actually stopped production on the show because Krystle Carrington's engagement ring wasn't spectacular enough. Is she sweet Krystle or nasty Alexis?

Carole Gene Marer spent her girlhood dreaming of meeting Rock Hudson, but when she finally had the chance—on a date with her future husband, television mogul Aaron Spelling—she was so shy she hid all night in the powder room. How Candy morphed from that quiet girl into a stylish trophy wife, mistress and designer of the largest house in Los Angeles (70,000 square feet when you count the attic) is at the heart of Stories from Candyland.

The life Candy created for her family—her husband and children Tori and Randy—was fabulous, over-the-top, and often magical. So what if California Christmases don’t come with snow? Let’s make some on the tennis court! How do we take a cross-country family vacation with a dad who doesn’t fly? By private train car, of course (with an extra for the 52 pieces of luggage).

Candy had a hand in some of the most beloved TV shows of all time (she insisted on a bigger diamond ring for Dynasty’s Krystle Carrington), has entertained half of Hollywood in epic fashion, and lives life in the spotlight . But under all the glamour lies a woman still wrestling with some of the insecurities of her ingénue self. Oprah threw her into a panic with a discussion of hoarding. And there’s nothing like being defined as, “well, you know, complicated” by your daughter on television and in her own book.

Stories from Candyland sparkles with glamour and grand gestures. But it also satisfies with more intimate discussions of family (human and canine), hearth and home.

Book is pretty boring. There's an entire chapter about cooking recipes. Candy seems pretty full of herself. She tends to think she's better than everyone else. She jumps all over. She makes comments that make you think that Aaron was controlling and possibly abusive. She said she had her own money (a large amount) that nobody knew about. As if what her husband made wasn't enough. He obviously gave her whatever she wanted. She goes on about how wonderful she was as a wife and mother. Yet she had a huge staff of people that work for her. Seems like a quickly written book just to get published to compete with Tori having books alot better than this one.

My friend told me to read a couple of Tori's books and when I added them to my amazon cart this book was suggested. It was priced less than the cost of a Happy Meal and it was hardback. Why not? I read it first in hopes that I would have an untainted point-of-view. She is no writer. There was absolutely no organization to the book and I was more interested in her house than her. I hacked through and was left with the impression that I had been shown the equivelant of the doll museum and gift wrapping room of her life but everything in the attic was left out. And true to the impression that anyone with a doll museum and gift wrapping room is a little nuts and fake...that was my final impression of her.
Roru
This book was easy to read however I think Candy lives someplace in LaLa land. She contradicts herself especially when talking about her grandchildren. The stories related for the most part were not interesting . Enjoyed reading about her earlier life, how she met AAron and having the kids and how their life was. She writes alot about her mother and how they were always cooking and doing recipes together and yet a friend from childhood relates toward the end of the book how Candy's mother stayed in bed till 3 o'cock everyday and seemed to be sickly and that's not the picture you get from Candy's writing so what's that all about. You don't really get any insight into her and Tori's relationship at all.

Candy Spelling and her daughter Tori are an interesting combination of a competing-for-attention parent and child combination. It is a wacky world of the super-rich and their foibles, such as Aaron Spelling hiring a snow machine to transform his Southern California back yard into a Winter Wonderland for his children's Christmas surprise. Hang the expense! It proves money does not mean happiness for all involved!
Morlurne
Just what, exactly, this book was supposed to be--I just do not know. It was just horrible! I have yet to figure out why Spelling would think anything she wrote about would be even remotely interesting to readers. It's a book about "STUFF"! All the stuff she has. Literally. And it's not even interesting stuff! The few stories that were supposed to be funny were just incredibly stupid and boring beyond belief. There was not one thing "from the heart", nothing funny, nothing interesting. The only reason I forced myself to finish it was because I paid for it. This was the worst & most boring book I've ever read, without a doubt. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. I wish I would have listened & not wasted mine. Not only did I buy this awful book--but I bought her 2nd book at the same time! So now I'm going to try to get through that one!
I read all of Tori's books, and they were all GREAT. Interesting and funny. Couldn't put them down. If you're expecting this from Candy's book--forget it.
Alianyau
Very poorly written. Candy may be an amazing person, but a writer she is not. There is not much substance and very few real revalations. And the recipes are nothing special.
Jugami
Overindulgent and obvious revenge on her own daughter. Uses the book to address problems with her daughter publicly in a childish selfish matter.
I looked forward to reading this book for I have brought all her daughter Tori's books. I found this book repeated a lot of what Tori said in her books. I wanted more information about Candy's life but was disappointed.
