Charlie Shanian, the first husband to Tori, is going to tell-all on "The Dr. Keith Ablow Show" and discuss in detail his high profile marriage and his ex-wife's relationship with her parents, Aaron and Candy Spelling.
Being married to Tori Spelling comes with the access to be privy to intimate details about the Spelling household.
TMZ.com reports that Charlie reveals to Ablow that Candy told him if he didn't sign the pre-nuptial agreement the invitations to the wedding would not go out in the mail.
Shanian alleges the well was poisoned between Tori and Candy even prior to their wedding in 2004.
Charlie claims that Candy and Aaron told him what a terrible daughter Tori was, when he asked the Spellings for their blessing to marry.
"They said how selfish she was and how she needed therapy really badly and she was just horrible to her parents."
According to show transcripts, Shanian alleges Aaron would tell Tori "I love you best, even more than mommy," which would pit Candy and Tori against each other in a competition for Aaron's affection.
TMZ reports that since Aaron's death, Candy and Tori have been embroiled in a nasty inheritance struggle.
Charlie and Tori divorced in April 2006. The following month Tori married Canadian actor Dean McDermott.
Charlie Shanian's interview airs Thursday on "The Keith Ablow Show."
