The widow of Aaron Spelling, who produced hit TV shows like Charlie's Angels and Beverly Hills 90210, is selling her family mansion. The 4.5-acre property in an exclusive part of Los Angeles has so many rooms, Candy Spelling says she can't even count them. She's asking $150 million, and she's relocating to a condo she bought last year — for $47 million.


And our last word in business today is, downsizing. Candy Spelling, the widow of Aaron Spelling, is selling her family mansion. Aaron Spelling produced TV hits like "Charlie's Angels", "Dynasty", "Beverly Hills 90210" and so he left behind a fortune.

It has the usual ultra rich luxuries: tennis court, spa, waterfall, gift wrapping room, bowling alley. The price she is asking is the most expensive property listing in the country, $150 million.
