Candy Spelling appeared on the TODAY Show Monday morning to talk about her dating life and what she thinks of daughter Tori Spelling‘s new docu-series chronicling her crumbling marriage to admitted cheater, Dean McDermott, and RadarOnline.com has the clip.
Promoting her new book, Candy at Last, Aaron Spelling‘s widow said she really opened up in her memoir because she’s “lost a lot of filter” with her age, and has watched every episode so far of True Tori.
“I think that they feel that they need to share it with the audience,” Candy said of the show.
“Tori has always, always, loved…she’s broken that wall of, this is my reality audience and I want to share it with them.”
When asked whether or not she agrees with her daughter making her private life so public, Candy revealed she’s okay with it because of Tori’s success.
“As a mom, you don’t want to see your children hurt in any way and I have to say that it’s painful for me to watch it,” she said.
“She does those things and she’s been very successful at it. You can’t argue with success.”
As for jumping back in the dating pool since her husband’s 2006 death, Candy said there was a lot she had to learn!
“A girlfriend of mine, her 27-year-old daughter had ‘the talk’ with me and the talk was about, it’s different than when you were dating. The birds and the bees…I know now if I’m going to be intimate with a man or if I’m going to have sex I have to have protected sex, I have to have a complete medical record,” she shared.
“I want to see a recent medical record and it happened. The first time I said this to someone they were like, ‘You’re kidding me, right?'”
And she even admitted to calling her son Randy while shopping for condoms in the drug store.
“I was in the condom aisle and I have to tell you, I never saw such a selection in my life.”
