    There's a great old Dominick Dunne piece on her - Candy's Dynasty
    Thanks. I will have to read that. I loved all his work. I'm sure it's a great read.

    I have almost a hundred different kinds of light bulbs (for everything from koi pond reflectors to French lampposts), plus unique duplicates of every carpet, wall covering, upholstery fabric, stone, and paint used in the house. Everything is labeled, and I even wrote stories about some of the rare items, such as the tale of how I found the silk for our entry hall walls.
    finally! Now we really know what (some) billionaires wives do with themselves! I also read somewhere that she has an ENTIRE ROOM just for gift wrapping.

    people feel like they’ve stepped back into their favorite parts of TV nostalgia instead of a climate-controlled attic.
    she's totally angling for a post-humorous wing at the Getty or Smithsonian.

    She sends her people over to France to look at houses for decorating ideas, but she tells them 'not the grand chateaux- look at the houses in whatever the Bel Air of France is'. She has servants place shells on the beach so she and her children can find them later when they walk on the shore. She has snow trucked in fromthe mountains so her kids can have a white christmas in their Beverly Hills home.


    It's a great piece - he rips her apart.
    OMG- need to read that! Was it an article in Vanity Fair? I did a quick search but no luck. Can someone more industrious than me find it and post the link?

    I don't know where it was originally published, but it's in Dunne's book Fatal Charms if that helps anyone looking for it.

    Her fucking attic looks like a Costco.

    She actually has THREE gift wrapping rooms.


    Spelling has three gift-wrapping rooms in the home, including the smallest for everyday gifts (pictured). "When Liam was still coming to see me," says Spelling of estranged daughter Tori's 2-year-old son, "we changed his diapers right here on this table, so it's good for all kinds of wrapping." The other two wrapping rooms include one in the attic, which has a shrink-wrap machine, and one in the basement devoted solely to wrapping Christmas and Easter gifts.

    I was wrong you guys- turns out she actually has THREE entire rooms for gift wrapping. What a freak!

    Hah- we posted that at the same time! Great minds...

    Heh. I wanted to see more of this freakshow house so I hit Google. Some other rooms in that home include (from various sites):

    DOLL MUSEUM

    "I first collected dolls for Tori when she was a little girl," says Spelling. "But she told me that she was afraid of them – she felt like they were watching her in her room." Spelling had a separate space built for the collection, which contains more than a 1,000 dolls on display and more in storage.

    GIFT-WRAPPING ROOM

    Spelling has three gift-wrapping rooms in the home, including the smallest for everyday gifts (pictured). "When Liam was still coming to see me," says Spelling of estranged daughter Tori's 2-year-old son, "we changed his diapers right here on this table, so it's good for all kinds of wrapping." The other two wrapping rooms include one in the attic, which has a shrink-wrap machine, and one in the basement devoted solely to wrapping Christmas and Easter gifts.

    She also has a 'China Room' for all her china storage. With special hinges made that read 'The Manor':


    And an in-house barber shop / salon, which doesn't seem so extravagent in comparison:

    You think Candy is bad? Just imagine the horror when she dies and Tori gets all that.

    i know! i was like and she studied great storage rooms around the world or whatever to get ideas for her disgusting storage facility?! the woman is insane. if i had anything to say to her i would say, "get a job!" b/c to waste one's whole life on a single house in this manner is quite sad. she's about 70 and what has she accomplished? I think this is it.

    Candy sweetie- duplicates are by definition not unique.

    She needs to get a (different) hobby!


    As crazy as it sounds I bet that after she moves if she manages to get rid of a lot if his stuff, she'll feel a great sence of relief.
    Something tells me she came from a dirt-poor family? Or has big psychological issues?
