    He tells incredible stories. Have you ever seen "An Evening With Kevin Smith"? It was playing every so often on...hmmm...Independent Film Channel, maybe? If you haven't, you really should. It's very long, but I couldn't stop laughing.

    Wow, Aaron Spelling died today. This really is a shocker for me and I feel so bad because Tori said she "wanted to have kids before he died."

    Aww...that's sad. I thought he had been improving after the stroke. The TV world certainly has lost a giant. Rest in Peace Mr. Spelling.

    As much as they claim it's not Dynasty... it sure sounds like it to me.

    The Latest

    As the Spellings Turn

    Not even the Carringtons issued this many press releases.

    In the latest volley in the PR war between the "Spelling Family" and Tori Spelling, the former accused the latter of tainting the legacy of the clan's legendary patriarch with "mean-spirited and surprising comments."

    The statement came one day after Us Weekly published excerpts from a new Tori Spelling interview in which the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star says she learned of father Aaron Spelling's death only after a friend emailed her.

    Producer Aaron Spelling, remembered in recent days as the beloved force behind numerous hit TV series, including 90210, Charlie's Angels and Charmed, died last Friday. He was 83.

    "We are deeply saddened that, during our time of loss and grief," the (other) Spellings said Thursday, "we are forced to respond to the media frenzy caused by the mean-spirited and surprising comments made by Tori to the press."

    Accused of spurring "hurtful and very disturbing" "petty and tabloid headlines," Tori Spelling is further taken to task for overshadowing her father.

    "Aaron's legacy deserved pure and unadulterated tribute and recognition which, sadly, has been tainted," the Spellings said.

    It was believed that the "Spelling Family," to whom the statement was credited, consisted of Aaron Spelling's widow, Candy, and his son, Randy.

    Where press releases are concerned, Tori Spelling has been excluded from the Spellings since last weekend, when a statement in which "our family" thanked well-wishers was attributed to Candy and Randy, but not Tori.

    Subsequently, Tori issued her own press release tacitly confirming a long-rumored family rift ("I am grateful that I recently had the opportunity to reconcile with my father..."), and back-handedly slamming her mother ("It is a true blessing to have had a parent [note the singular, not plural] that loved me unconditionally...").

    In comments last weekend to the Los Angeles Times, Randy Spelling, speaking through longtime Aaron Spelling publicist Kevin Sasaki, sought to tamp down tensions. "This is not Dynasty," Randy Spelling said, invoking his father's famous 1980s prime-time soap about the conniving Carrington clan, "this is a real family [that] loves each other."

    After, all was quiet until Wednesday when Alexis and Krystle duked it out in the fountain. Or, in other words, when word broke of Tori Spelling's Us Weekly interview.

    In the cover story, to hit newsstands Friday, the 33-year-old actress revealed she was dining in Toronto when her Blackberry delivered the bad news about her father.

    "My first thought was, I can't believe my mom didn't call me!" Tori Spelling told Us Weekly.

    Tori Spelling went on to say that her mother's "behavior," not her failed first marriage, not her recent elopement with actor Dean McDermott, and not so noTORIous, the satirical VH1 send-up of her and hers, had caused her to keep her distance from fellow Spellings.

    The Spellings' statement did not address Tori Spelling's specific concern that Candy Spelling had been spending too much time with a longtime family friend as Aaron Spelling ailed. Candy Spelling has denied the relationship was romantic.

    In what could be read as an olive branch or a loaded gun, the Spellings essentially argued that Tori Spelling is acting out because she "chose" not to be with Aaron Spelling in his final days. (Tori Spelling last saw her father on Jun. 11, days before the stroke that preceded his death.)

    "We understand how difficult it might have been for her to be here, and, perhaps, more difficult for her after she arrived," the Spellings said. "Aaron loved both his children with all his heart, and he understood how hard it was for her."

    In what could be read as sound judgment, fatigue or the calm before the next storm, Tori Spelling declined to comment Thursday on the "Spelling Family."

    Swank: Husband's addiction hurt marriage

    http://www.cnn.com/2006/SHOWBIZ/Movi...eut/index.html

    Couple confirmed split in May

    NEW YORK (Reuters) -- Oscar-winning actress Hilary Swank said the breakdown of her eight-year marriage to actor Chad Lowe was partially due to the substance abuse problem he had been battling.

    Swank, who won best actress Oscars for her performance in "Million Dollar Baby" and "Boys Don't Cry," confirmed in May that the couple had decided to end their marriage but gave no reason for the split.

    Swank told the latest edition of Vanity Fair magazine that she was shocked when she found out about Lowe's addiction, which contributed to their marriage's slide.

    "I don't want to make it seem like that's the sole reason [for their breakup]; there were other factors," Swank told the magazine, which arrived on newsstands on Wednesday. "But that just kind of blew it open; it made me look at things a lot deeper.

    "It's an enormous obstacle to overcome and he's doing it. He's living a sober life. I know how difficult it is and I'm really proud of his sobriety."

    Swank, 31, did not give details on what substances were abused by Lowe, who works mostly in television and whose career has been overshadowed by Swank's, as well as that of his better-known older brother, Rob Lowe.

    Swank and Lowe, 38, married in September 1997. She said she initiated the divorce but it ended up being mutual.

    Comedian Red Buttons Dies in L.A. at 87

    LOS ANGELES -- Red Buttons, the carrot-topped burlesque comedian who became a top star in early television then went dramatic to win the 1957 Oscar as supporting actor in "Sayonara," died Thursday. He was 87.

    Buttons died of vascular disease at his home in the Century City area of Los Angeles, publicist Warren Cowan said. He had been ill for some time, and was with family members when he died, Cowan said.
