It’s no secret that Tori Spelling doesn’t have the best relationship with her mom, Candy Spelling, but soon enough, she may be replaced in her mother’s life altogether!
Two months ago, Candy brought Tatum O’Neal to Tori’s daughter, Hattie McDermott’s, 3rd birthday party, and these days, they’re as close as mother and daughter themselves. Over the Thanksgiving holiday, Candy posted a blog about gratitude online, which her new pal quickly retweeted. Candy took notice, and responded with a, “Thanks Tatum!”
While the exchange isn’t much, it’s important to note that those two words are more than Candy’s ever written to her own flesh and blood, Tori, on the social media site.
Things escalated on the Dec. 2 episode of True Tori, when the Beverly Hills 90210 star’s husband, Dean McDermott, told cameras he thought Tatum was “an odd choice of a plus-one,” for Candy to bring to a toddler’s party. “I heard Tori Spelling’s husband was rude about me on True Tori,” Tatum tweeted afterward. “I will pray for him.”
“Tatum has the same sort of dysfunctional relationship with her dad, Ryan, that Tori has with Candy,” an insider tells Star. She had similar problems with her mom, Joanna Moore, who died in 1997. “Tatum was looking for a substitute mother and Candy was looking for a substitute daughter,” the source adds. “They’ve finally found each other!”
