After a 50-year hiatus from writing, Candy Spelling penned the bestseller Stories from Candyland, a memoir of how she morphed from a small-town quiet, insecure girl into the outgoing, A-list, Hollywood wife of Aaron Spelling%u2013 film and TV producing tycoon. During those 50 years, she was an accomplished cook, seamstress, model and interior designer. She married twice, had two children, built the largest home in Los Angeles, ran a gift store, designed dolls and jewelry for cable shopping networks, and performed public service work.
However, her feud with daughter Tori Spelling has seemingly overshadowed her life%u2019s accomplishments; Stories from Candyland is said to be Candy%u2019s response to Tori%u2019s memoir, sTori Telling.
According to the Huffington Post, Candy%u2019s first published work was 1957%u2019s How I Gave My Father An Ulcer, a letter to her father apologizing if food she made using the Betty Crocker junior baking set he bought her gave him an ulcer. Her parents thought the letter was worthy of publication, and submitted it to a local Los Angeles newspaper which ran the story.
