Tori Spelling: ‘Farrah Fawcett Contacted Me After Death’

In a new interview with Out Magazine, Tori Spelling says Farrah Fawcett contacted her from the afterlife.

“It was pretty surreal,” Spelling says. “We were neighbors for years. She basically wanted me to give a message to [Fawcett’s son] Redmond and to her family and she was doing these very specific call-outs for things that they would understand.”

The incident occurred over the phone with TV psychic John Edward.

“He offered to do a reading with me and I was hoping I would talk to my dad. I’d lost a best friend a long time ago and I was hoping he would come through. And then, all of a sudden, [he said] Farrah Fawcett’s coming through,” Spelling says.

It’s worth noting this supernatural claim comes during the promotional blitz for Spelling’s new book, ‘Uncharted TerriTORI.’ The Huffington Post goes one further: “Tori Spelling is pulling out all the stops to draw attention to her new book.”But Spelling seems to harbor no doubt about the incident. “If it had been some psychic that I’d walked in off the street for five bucks it would have been different. But it came through John Edward,” she says. “He’s a medium, so he channels people. I’ve been to regular psychics that turn over cards, tarot cards, and sort of read your future, that type of thing. But, with him, literally people just come to him and say things that they want the person to hear.” Spelling says she and husband Dean McDermott contacted Dean’s deceased parents together. “They were coming through and they were saying things that literally only Dean would know, that I had no idea about. So, I don’t know, I believe in all of that.”Though she’s a complete believer in mysticism, Spelling doesn’t understand why Fawcett spoke to her. “I can’t believe she came through to me — the most nonconfrontational person in the world. What am I supposed to do with this information? I’ve actually written a letter to [her partner and actor] Ryan O’Neal and explained to him in the letter everything that happened. I said, if none of this makes sense, please don’t think I’m crazy, this literally happened. I’m just passing on information but it was pretty bizarre at the time.”

Academy: Farrah Fawcett omission was ‘not an oversight’

Ryan O’Neal says he can’t believe the decision by the Academy Awards to omit Farrah Fawcett from the “In Memoriam” segment of Sunday’s show.

“It was a terrible decision and very hurtful,” O’Neal tells Radar Online. “Farrah was a member of the Academy for over 40 years and we could not believe she did not get a mention.” Patrick Swayze, Michael Jackson and Brittany Murphy were included in the segment.

O’Neal says he watched the show with daughter Tatum, and they plan to protest. “Both Tatum and I were very upset and we intend to write a letter to the Academy to try and get an explanation for this oversight on their behalf.”

Leslie Unger, a rep for the Academy, tells Radar that “unfortunately we don’t include everyone.” She told E!, it was “not an oversight.”

Ryan O’Neal Disappointed By Oscars’ Farrah Fawcett Snub

Farrah Fawcett’s longtime partner, Ryan O’Neal, has joined other Hollywood figures including Jane Fonda and Roger Ebert in expressing dismay that Fawcett was left out of the “In Memoriam” segment of Sunday’s Academy Awards.

“There is no comment other than we were disappointed that she was not included,” a rep for O’Neal tells People.

Fonda and Ebert both Tweeted about the snub during the broadcast. “No Farrah Fawcett in the memorial tribute? Major fail,” Ebert wrote. “And where was Farrah Fawcett? She should have been included #oscars #FAIL,” wrote Fonda.

The “In Memoriam” portion of the broadcast features a montage of film-industry figures who have passed away in the previous year. Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences spokeswoman Leslie Unger says the segment can only honor so many people.

“Every year it’s an unfortunate reality that we can’t include everybody,” she tells the Associated Press.

Even before the show, Academy executive director Bruce Davis spoke about the difficult process of creating the segment. “It is the single most troubling element of the Oscar show every year,” he told AP last week. “Because more people die each year than can possibly be included in that segment.”

Davis explained that he and a small committee narrow an initial list of more than 100 people down to about 30. “It gets close to agonizing by the end,” he said. “You are dropping people who the public knows. It’s just not comfortable.”

Fawcett, who died last June at age 62, was primarily a TV actress, though she did appear in a number of feature films.
