Not an Heiress

A statement from the Spelling family criticizes Tori's remarks after her father's death, calling them "hurtful and very disturbing." A month later, Spelling learns that she and her brother Randy will each receive about $1 million of their father's $300 million estate. Spelling tells USA Today, "My dad was really the glue of our family. The mother-and-daughter dynamic has always been a wonderment to me, and it can be a very difficult dynamic. Especially with my doting dad, who just lived through his little girl."

Working Mom-to-Be

Spelling, who is 14 weeks pregnant, uses her entire inheritance and money from her two-day garage sale to open a bed & breakfast with McDermott for their upcoming Oxygen network reality series, Tori & Dean: Inn Love. The 9-acre estate in Fallbrook, Calif., about 100 miles southeast of L.A., is named Chateau La Rue, after Spelling's pug Mimi La Rue. Spelling also begins writing a memoir. "I certainly hope that (the book) doesn't cause more damage," Spelling says. But after hearing the baby news, grandmother-to-be Candy says she's "thrilled and ecstatic" about the pregnancy.

Reconciling with Candy

Candy tells PEOPLE that she and her estranged daughter are trying to patch up their relationship. Spelling's brother Randy, 28, who's been stuck in the middle, says, "No matter what, we are family, and they're resolving things and getting back together. They are communicating, and it makes both of them happy. It's definitely a mutual thing."

Back to the Zipcode

After initially backing out of guest-starring on 90210, Spelling reprises her role as Donna Martin on The CW spin-off with former costar and pal Jennie Garth. "I hope it turns out to be a really great show, just for my dad's legacy," she said in August. "I was originally a part of [90210] and it was something pretty phenomenal, so I hope it turns out great."
