In her book, she made a point that I think is important. She said she was raised from the time she was a little girl to never look at price tags or worry about how a bill is getting paid. There were people to do that and that cashflow was nonstop.
Parents need to raise their children to be self sufficient. That means that if you're uber rich and don't plan on setting up trust funds for your kids, you need to educate them on how to save money and pay your own bills. I hate The Donald but he seems to have done a good job in raising his kids (or his daughter Ivanka, anyhow). She's beautiful and did her stint in modeling, but she's also educated and from all reports, very smart and driven. He didn't give her the apartment in Trump Tower. She had to pay for it with her salary. (Granted, I'm sure it's a heck of a large salary.) Ivanka led a privileged life but also grew up knowing that she was expected to go to college and make her own money. I think Tori does a good job of earning money, but she still spends like she's got Aaron's money.
Also in her book (and granted, this is all Tori's version of reality), she said that her father's memory/mind was going near the end of his life and he alluded to her being well taken care of when he died--that she'd get thousands. He didn't realize that he had millions of dollars. But the Spellings didn't do the things that most women in her situation would expect--they didn't pay for her lavish wedding (her first one), but her mother expected it to be lavish enough to impress her friends. So Tori and Charlie went into debt to pay for it. They didn't give her a house, or even pay down payment on it. That kind of stuff.
I'm a firm believer that children shouldn't expect anything from their parents (in terms of money). The parents have their money and it's theirs to do with what they want. But I don't think Aaron's intention was for Candy to keep all of it and not give Tori a million or two.
I hope Tori and Candy do reconcile, not for the money, but because they really want to.
