    One thought on “Candy at Last”

    1. Reading between the lines gave me a lot of insight into who Candy is, and why Tori had a lot of issues with her. She seems to be a name dropper and out of touch with real people. If she wanted to portray herself as a nice person, she did the opposite.

    2. This is the second book by Candy Spelling, her first written about 5 years before. I have not read the first, which may have helped fill in some gaps with this one, but maybe not. In this book, Candy documents a bit of what her childhood was like, her time as a single woman (which was really not very long, she was married at 19 to another many prior to marrying Aaron Spelling and married Aaron Spelling pretty quickly after that). Each chapter is short and discusses some small event or thoughts o [...]

    3. I'm glad I read this book about Candy Spelling. She's mentioned in it that most people don't like her or think she is cold and unfeeling. That's what I thought too until I read the book. She came from an average family but they didn't show their feelings to each other. She was always criticized by her mother and always felt like the outsider. When she married Aaron Spelling, he was just beginning his road to success. He wanted her by his side all the time. She embraced being a wife and mother an [...]

    4. I have read a few of Tori Spelling's books, which I surprisingly enjoyed. Same thing here- I really enjoyed her mother's books too. Yes, she talks about her enormous wealth rather often. However, she apparently worked very hard, married the right guy, and made some pretty good business deals during and after her marriage to Aaron Spelling. Translation- she earned it. I can respect. While I can't empathize with her need of huge china and doll collections, I do appreciate that she takes care of wh [...]

    5. This is the 2nd book by Candy Spelling. This one is about her life after the death of her husband, Aaron Spelling. I watched all of Aaron Spelling's shows growing up, and have followed the life of their daughter Tori Spelling, so I really enjoyed reading this book. She talks about the building of "The Manor", which is one of the largest houses in the U.S and then finally just being able to let it go and sell, to move to a condominium penthouse. It was just fun reading about her life.

    6. I loved this bookCandy Spelling is a gracious and warm woman. I had the pleasure of meeting her and working with her at the Department of Recreation and Parks. I read her first book when she was a Commissioner and she signed it for me. I gave her a picture of the Manor under construction that was taken by helicopter by my husband who also worked for the City of Los Angeles. she was very touched by that picture. This book was very well written and interesting.

    7. I really enjoyed this second autobiography by Candy Spelling. Her stories and insider knowledge made for a delicous read. I found her candor especially entertaining. My only criticism would be that her stories jumped around so much that it was a little discombobulating--as if the book was a collection of essays instead of one long read. I finished the book in an afternoon.

    8. InterestingI found this book to be very interesting. I didn't know much about Candy Spelling. After reading this book she came to life. I understand how she felt after the loss of her husband. I kind of put myself in her shoes too, someday I may have to do the same. Thanks for sharing some of your experiences. Loved the dating again part.

    9. I enjoyed reading this book and all the stories of yesteryear. Candy Spelling has 'Come a long way, baby". She has the reader understand who she is as a person. It was nice to know her side of her story.

    10. I couldn't get past the fact that this book is full of grammatical errors. Sloppy proofreading. I think I liked her first book Candyland much better. After reading her most recent work, I get a bad taste in my mouth for the late Aaron Spelling and his character.

    11. I tried to read Candy's first book but didn't enjoy it but this book is a big improvement. Although it isn't the best book ever written, she shares great anecdotes of her life in Hollywood. She comes across as likable. This is a great book to read while on vacation.

    12. I really enjoyed the book however I wanted more juicy details and gossip. I also thought that color photos would have been better because the black and white ones were too grainy. And I wanted photos of her new house!!
