Well, I know what I’ll be doing after work…hitting up the Beverly Hills Goodwill store!
Candy Spelling is moving out of her massive $85 million mansion, and you know how moving is a pain in the ass? Well, next time you move, take this into consideration: it took Spelling 30 moving vans to carry 123 rooms worth of stuff from her Los Angeles home.
The good news is, Candy is giving all her crap to charity. The widow of TV mogul Aaron Spelling recently sold their home to English heiress Petra Ecclestone, and she’s now filming her huge move/donation for a TV documentary, Selling Spelling Manor.
So Gimme The Loot! What’s she giving away? Well, she donated 5,000 bound copies of scripts from her husband’s shows to Boston University, and she also plans to sell a large number of Beanie Babies on eBay.
So uh, no second-hand Louboutins or I don’t know, a hunter green leather Marc Jacobs bag? Just the beanie babies, then?
Spelling says of her hoarding:
"Collecting for me starts with something you have a passion for.”
Let me repeat… she also plans to sell a large number of Beanie Babies on eBay.
“That was important to me,” Spelling says of her decision to donate. “I was fortunate to be able to have so much, that I wanted to be able to share it with other people."
That's nice, but I’m pretty sure the less fortunate are good on toy cats stuffed with polyethylene pellets.
So how did Candy get all those rooms packed up?
“To try to organize it, I had to have many different types of movers and to keep track of everything,” Candy says on the documentary.
“I thought I was doing pretty good until I go into my warehouse now and it's like 40 boxes that say "living room" on it. It's like "okay but what is in the box?"
