(Newser) – This week on The Spelling Family: matriarch Candy implies daughter Tori is to blame for the death of producer Aaron—then gets mad when the media picks up on it. During a radio interview yesterday, Candy said Tori’s refusal to speak to Aaron was “what killed my husband, actually.” When E! called this an “accusation of patricide,” Candy responded in an angry blog on the Huffington Post.

"I didn’t intend to create headlines. I was asked a question about my daughter not speaking with my family, and I answered truthfully,” Candy Spelling writes. “My husband was very ill, and he had stopped eating and taking liquids. He called Tori on a daily basis, and never stopped asking if Tori had returned his call. We had to say no every day.”
