EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Candy Spelling Named Official Ambassador of Tourism in Los Angeles

While most celebrities prefer to keep their homes a private retreat, away from ogling tourists and idling tour buses, Candy Spelling is embracing tourism and RadarOnline.com has the exclusive scoop.

The famous Hollywood wife and mother was recently elected to the board of LA Inc., the Los Angeles Visitors and Conventions Bureau and named an official Ambassador of Tourism for the city of Los Angeles.  Candy will join the list of stars including Tom Hanks, Kobe Bryant and Lauren Conrad who have appeared in the “That’s So L.A.” ad campaign.

Through her post at LA, Inc., Candy will pick up where her late husband Aaron left off, promoting Los Angeles as a premiere destination.

Candy’s first official order of business was to commandeer a Star Lines tour bus and give a group of unsuspecting riders a look at her favorite places in Los Angeles for the Candy Spelling CandyCam. The tour kicked off at The Manor, an official stop on the tour of celebrity homes, and included several of Candy’s favorite places including See’s Candies (where she had her first job), Madame Tussauds, Book Soup, and more.
