Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott

Candy, who had a pricey doll collection (numbering more than 1,000) that she started for Tori when she was little, also bought porcelain dolls for Stella, 19 months, but the insider says, “but she can’t play with them, they are for collecting only. The doting grandma has also splashed out on clothing. “She bought double pairs of matching outfits for the kids – in case one gets dirty; and their own play table and chair set,” the insider says. “Tori just doesn’t want her kids to have the same extravagant upbringing that she had.”

“It’s a shame,” says the insider, “because Tori and Candy were getting along great. Even Dean [McDermott, Tori’s husband] was amazed at how well things were going, until the bickering started.”

Now, Dean has been advised by Tori and Candy not to interfere in their arguments. “It’s hard for him to stay out of it. They are his kids, too, and he doesn’t think it’s good for the kids to hear their mother and grandmother argue right in front of them. He’s trying hard to keep the friction in the family down to a minimum. Hopefully, he will succeed.”

  1. SPOILED!Tori spoiled those kids..I believe Tori is jealous of her children..Tori wants everything & everyone under her control..I’ve watched her on the tv w/her hubby& children…Tori likes to control..Maybe the grannie can put up a trust fund and abide by Tori wants & just enjoy the grandchildren when she visit….

  2. As a grandmother, I know how hard it is to resist buying things for my granddaughter. I simply can’t resist. I also understand how Tori feels, so I would suggest just putting things away, and maybe even donating them to charity rather than fight with Candy over it. Candy can’t stop herself, so find a healthier way to deal with the issue than fighting. I applaud Tori for not wanting her kids to feel entitled, but at the same time, when you throw parties so over the top for birthdays and such, they are inevitably going to feel that, so it’s important to watch your own behavior with them as well. Tori, you’ve come a long way, so don’t let this set you back!

  3. I see more low income spoiled brats, than the upper class. I feel it is how you are raised. My brother gave his kids everything, and they help everyone….nicest young adults I know.

  4. Team Tori. When all you do is give kids stuff, they learn that the stuff is more important than the relationship. And the mom is the one who gets to decide that. The grandma has to abide by the mom’s wishes if she wants to see her grandkids. Believe it or not, it’s not a grandma’s “job” or “right” to spoil her grandkids. It’s her job to love them and to support their mommy.
    My grandma and mom fought about this so much when I was a kid. Eventually, because my grandma refused to just spend time with me (and because she refused to be respectful to my mother after my parents’ divorce) the relationship between her and our family completely disintegrated. Nonetheless, I’m so glad that my mom raised me to care more about people than presents, and to know the value of the things I had.

  5. You can spoil and still have a well adjusted child. I spoil my 10 year old daughter as I grew up as a child with nothing and want her to be able to have what I couldn’t. My daughter however has the biggest heart….we volunteer with the homeless, she donates her hair to locks of love and she always says please and thank you to people. It DOES depend how you raise them…with love and respect.
