'90210' star Tori Spelling hasn't read her mother Candy's impassioned online plea for a family reunion but insists Candy is welcome to contact her privately
Tori Spelling hasn't read the emotional open letter her mother posted on the internet.
The '90210' star claims she didn't even know Candy had written the impassioned missive, which begs Tori for a family reunion.
The 45-year-old actress said: "I haven't seen it. I feel a bit clueless. She has not contacted me. And she's welcome to contact me. Privately."
Candy - who recently claimed she has "no relationship" with her daughter, and hasn't even met her granddaughter, 10-month-old Stella - posted the note on her website on Monday (13.04.09).
It read: "Call me, write me, text me... I want a relationship with you and my grandchildren."
Tori has been estranged from her mother since her father Aaron Spelling died in 2007. Tori was expecting to inherit a portion of her father's $500 million fortune, but Candy gave her just $800,000.
But Tori - who has two children Stella, and Liam, two, with husband Dean McDermott - insists she is not trying to cut her mother out of her life.
She said: "There's no feud. We simply never meshed. It's not like we're not talking, we just haven't talked. I love my mother. I've always loved her and no doubt she loves me.
"I, in no way, cut her off. She is welcome to make the effort if she wants to be present in their lives. She knows how to reach me, she knows where we live."
Tori also denied claims she is battling an eating disorder after she was photographed looking alarmingly thin.
She said: "Oh my God, I'm not anorexic. I acknowledge that I look thin in photos. I get it. Obviously I don't want to lose any more weight but I'm eating healthy, I just have a crazy lifestyle.
"I'm the first to admit that sometimes I don't have the time to sit down for a well-balanced meal."
