It’s Hattie’s third birthday on the Dec. 2 episode of ‘True Tori,’ but it’s not just a happy celebration. Tori’s mom Candy Spelling comes to her granddaughter’s birthday, and Tori becomes overwhelmed with emotion and breaks down and cries.
“It’s like having a very important stranger over at your house.” That’s how Dean McDermott describes Tori Spelling‘s mother, Candy Spelling. Yep, Candy‘s in town! And with none other than Tatum O’Neal — yes, it’s that random.
‘True Tori’: Candy Spelling Makes Hattie’s Birthday Party Super Awkward
Tori and Dean are throwing a birthday party for their daughter, Hattie, and it seems that everyone is invited — or not invited, but still came. (I’m talking Tatum O’Neal.)
Dean’s ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace is also invited by none other than Tori herself.
“Are you…who are you?” Tatum asks Mary Jo. Seriously, you guys. This is too good. File this three-year-old’s birthday party under most random guest list ever.
“Do I know anyone here,” Mary Jo, Dean’s ex-wife asks him. He responds, “Probably not. Well, you know T.”
Oh, great. Perfect.
“She’s actually not the one I’m worried about seeing at this party,” Tori says about Mary Jo, alluding to mother. Candy always comes to her grand children’s birthday parties and that’s really the only time she sees her daughter — so this party is a bit awkward to say the least.
Tori and Candy exchange a few bizarre words, one being Tori asking why she brought Tatum (surprise! they’re neighbors!), before accusing her of coming just to be on the show, and another prime moment was Tori introducing Dean’s ex-wife to her somewhat-estranged mother.
“Seeing Mary Jo and my mom talking, I can safely say, that is something I never thought I would see,” Tori says. “The women in my life that I’ve had the most issues with, and there they are talking, and I don’t know what they’re talking about. That makes me anxious.”
Tori Cries In Therapy — Admits Candy Spelling Made Her Scared To Be A Mom
After the party, Tori heads over to Dr. Wexler, in shambles over her mother. She’s supposed to go on a girls’ trip, but she’s so shaken up over Dean and her mother she can’t bare to go.
“Everyone tells me, accept her for what she is, she’s never going to meet your expectations, as a mother,” Tori tells her therapist, breaking down in tears. She reveals that she gives her daughters extra hugs every day, just to ensure that they feel loved because she never did.
Tori weeps, “I was so scared to have a daughter.” So sad.
Tori Fights With Dean Over Another Woman — The Rehabbed Babysitter
In the end, Tori decides to go on the girls’ trip, but another woman ruins everything — Dean’s friend back at home.
Tori’s nanny texts her, while she’s wine tasting in Santa Barbara, telling her that Dean has some “chick” in their home. That chick happens to be his friend from rehab who Dean brought over to interview for a baby sitting job.
Let’s just say, it doesn’t go over well, and Tori flips out, flees back home and breaks out in a fight.
HollywoodLifers, do you think it’s sad that Tori is so hurt by her mom? Let us know.
