Candy Spelling is using her house move to benefit others - she's handing many of her personal items to non-profit organisations as she boxes up her extensive belongings.
The widow of late TV mogul Aaron Spelling has sold their 14-bedroom Los Angeles mansion to Formula 1 heiress Petra Ecclestone for $85 million .
She's filmed the big move for a special TV documentary, Selling Spelling Manor, and after rummaging through all her belongings, Spelling has decided to give away some of her items.
She has donated 5,000 bound copies of scripts from her husband's TV shows to Boston University, while thousands of her Beanie Babies toy collection have gone up for auction on eBay.com, with proceedings going to non-profit organization LA's Best, which benefits after school programs.
Spelling says, "Only when I started moving did I start to think I have tendencies to be a hoarder. I'm an archivist. That makes it sound a little better, doesn't it?
"Collecting for me starts with something you have a passion for. That was important to me (donating items). I was fortunate to be able to have so much, that I wanted to be able to share it with other people."
