Tori Spelling and mom Candy Spelling haven't had the easiest relationship, but when it comes down to it, Tori is still Candy's little girl. Speaking with HuffPost Live about her daughter on May 6, Candy said it's incredibly difficult to see what Tori has been going through in the wake of husband Dean McDermott's infidelity last December.
Tori's recent hospitalization for migraines -- made worse by the stress of her marital problems -- was particularly rough. (Candy, 68, previously told ET she helped feed her daughter, 40, in the hospital.) "She suffers from migraine headaches the way I used to, and that's very difficult," the "Candy at Last" author explained. "I mean, it's all very emotional."
She continued, "You know, if I could take the hit for her, I would. She's my child -- we're not talking about some crazy reality star here. We're talking about my little girl. So it's really hard for me to have to watch her ever be in pain or ever hurt."
As previously reported, Tori is currently struggling to save her marriage with McDermott, with whom she has four kids, Liam, 7, Stella, 5, Hattie, 2, and Finn, 20 months. As they have before, the couple are documenting their journey on TV, this time on the Lifetime docu-series "True Tori."
Candy told "Access Hollywood" earlier this month that she and her daughter have been talking "almost every day" throughout the saga -- but they haven't always been so close. The two famously feuded in the months before and after the 2006 death of Spelling patriarch Aaron Spelling, creator of Tori's hit show "Beverly Hills, 90210."
"You know, with mothers [and] daughters, especially, there's big love, and there's also big conflict," Candy explained on HuffPost Live. "You will not talk to anybody that says, 'I have the greatest relationship, my mom's my best friend,' that hasn't had a moment where they haven't spoken for a couple days, or a week, or a month. It happens. That's universal."
