Stars Pay Tribute To Spelling
Actors DAVID SOUL, JACLYN SMITH and TONY CURTIS have paid tribute to late TV legend AARON SPELLING, who died on Friday (23JUN06). The Hollywood producer, who was responsible for a host of shows including CHARLIE'S ANGELS, DYNASTY, STARSKY + HUTCH and BEVERLY HILLS, 90210, passed away in his Los Angeles home following a stroke. Former Angel Smith laments, "Aaron's contributions in television are unequalled. To me, he was a dear friend and a truly genuine human being." Starsky + Hutch star Soul says, "Spelling was one of those characters who doesn't exist too much in Hollywood anymore. He created a family of actors. He was television. He was an ideas man." While Curtis, who starred in Spelling's 1970s TV series VEGA$, recalls, "Aaron loved Las Vegas. I got the impression he wanted to live here."
