Tori Spelling insists her mother Candy won't be making a cameo appearance on her new reality TV show, because the pair don't want to put undue pressure on their relationship so soon after ending their long-running feud.

Tori Spelling insists her mother Candy won't be making a cameo appearance on her new reality TV show, because the pair don't want to put undue pressure on their relationship so soon after ending their long-running feud.

Beverly Hills, 90210 star Tori reportedly inherited a paltry $200,000 (€147,000) of her late millionaire father Aaron Spelling's $500 million (€368m) fortune - a decision made my her then-estranged mother Candy Spelling.

Tori spent the inheritance on a guest house for her and new husband Dean McDermott to run - all captured on reality show Tori & Dean Inn Love.

Candy and Tori have since reconciled, shortly before the birth of the actress' first child Liam in March, and both mother and daughter are in agreement for Candy not to appear on the TV show.

Tori says: "I know that a lot of people want to see that (Candy on the show), but I don't want to be selling out by putting my family on TV.

"I'm taking time to cultivate that relationship and let it grow again."
