Candy Spelling has downsized from her nearly 57,000-square-foot Los Angeles area mansion to a 6,000-square-foot temporary apartment. And although Candy is enjoying her new digs, her dog is very upset that he has had to give up five acres for a lowly terrace that most people would kill to have.
"I'm not in my fabulous condo yet, I'm in a temporary condo," Candy tells me. "You know what? My dog went into depression. The temporary place is like 6,000 square feet."
And although it's hard to feel sorry for the pampered pooch or Candy, who is renovating two penthouse units she bought in a condo complex in Century City for $35 million, she does admit that it wasn't easy to pack up the highest-priced home in the country in only 30 days.
"It was incredibly overwhelming to move," Candy said. "It wasn't just 56,500 square feet, I had 17,000 square feet of attic and I had to do it in 30 days. I had to put all the emotions aside and [say], let's organize this and get this done. It was time. I feel like I have always been the keeper of the memories and now I'm giving back my family the memories. I had to find a place to store it all and get it packed up. There had to be 14 or 15 different kinds of movers in there. Some of it went to auction for charities and some went to friends."
But don't fret, Candy said her dog is adjusting to their downgraded pad.
