About Harvey's guest:
Today’s special guest is a woman who truly exemplifies the terms self-motivation, self-reinvention, self-affirmation and ultimately, what it means to make a real difference in the world.
For 38 years she was simply known as the wife of the most prolific writer and producer in television history, Aaron Spelling, who ran Hollywood’s largest and most successful production company. He brought us such iconic TV shows as “The Mod Squad”, “Starsky & Hutch”, “Charlie’s Angels”, “Fantasy Island”, “The Love Boat”, “Dynasty”, “Beverly Hills 90210”, and many more. As the wife of one of Hollywood’s most powerful executives, our guest’s entire identity was wrapped up in being his collaborator, cheerleader, executive assistant, housekeeper, trophy wife, companion and support – not to mention, a very involved mother of 2 children.
After her husband died in 2006, she found herself at a profound crossroads, and over the course of the next few years, her transformation has been nothing short of astounding.
She’s written 2 best selling books, “Stories from Candyland”, and “Candy at Last”. She executive produced and starred in 2 highly successful HGTV mini-series about selling her world famous Hollywood mansion, “Spelling Manor”, AND designing and furnishing the condo she moved into after she sold the Manor.
If that weren’t enough, she’s become an enormously successful, multi-Tony award winning producer of 14 Broadway shows including “Promises Promises”, “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”, “The Colour Purple”, “Tina: The Tina Turner Musical”, “Moulin Rouge: The Musical”, and her latest smash hit multi Tony nominated shows, “Mr. Saturday Night” and “MJ: The Musical”, which just won 4 Tony awards. And she’s actively involved in numerous civic and charitable activities, as one of America’s most beloved philanthropists. And of course, she spends as much time as she can with her 7 beautiful grandchildren, who affectionately call her “Candy Gram”.
