Fresh off wikipedia

Aaron Spelling (April 22, 1923–June 23, 2006) was an American film and television producer.

He had worked in some capacity on almost 200 productions including Starsky and Hutch, Family, Hotel, Daniel Boone, The Rookies, Charlie's Angels, The Love Boat, Vega$, Hart to Hart, Dynasty, The Colbys, T.J. Hooker, Twin Peaks, Nightingales, Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose Place, 7th Heaven, and Charmed. He also produced the NBC TV series Titans with Yasmine Bleeth in 2000 and Summerland in 2004. Certain sources list him as the world's most prolific or successful television producer.

Born in Dallas, Texas, Aaron attended Forest Avenue High School. After serving with the USAAF, he graduated from Southern Methodist University in 1945. He went to New York and found some work as an actor. He married actress Carolyn Jones, in 1953, and they moved to California. He had his break as a writer, selling his first script to Jane Wyman Theater in 1954. He went on to write for Dick Powell, Playhouse 90, and Last Man, amongst others. He joined Powell's Four Star Productions. After Powell's death he formed Thomas-Spelling Productions with Danny Thomas. Their first hit was The Mod Squad. In 1972, he created Aaron Spelling Productions and another co-production company with Leonard Goldberg. His company went public in 1986 as Spelling Entertainment.

He divorced Jones in 1965 and in 1968 he married Carol Jean Marer (aka Candy Spelling). He was father of the actors Victoria Davey Spelling (Tori Spelling) and Randall Gene Spelling (Randy Spelling). He lived in Los Angeles; his home is the largest single-family dwelling in California.

Spelling also produced the NBC daytime soap opera Sunset Beach from 1997 to 1999.

Despite his many accomplishments in life, Spelling continued to emphasize that his favorite project of all time was 7th Heaven. The success of this "little drama that could", and the fact that it had been the WB's most-watched series since 1998, was beyond belief to him.

In January 28, 2006, he was sued by his former nurse who seeks unspecified damages for ten claims, including sexual harassment and discrimination, retaliation, sexual battery (for making "contact with the plaintiff's intimate parts" ), assault, wrongful termination, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

On June 18, 2006, he suffered a stroke at his estate in Holmby Hills, Los Angeles, California and died there on June 23, 2006 at age 83

Nah, I'd much rather see his daughter bite the bullet.

Too bad he wasn't a vampire, then he could have suck her life force out, he would have live for another 40 or so years, and she'd be dead.

I heard two ways you can become a vampire.

1. You drink a Vampire's blood. I've sen two examples of this, the vampire would cut his/her tongue and kiss the victim.

2. Suck the blood, but leave a litle left. If a Vampire sucks all of your blood out of your body, then you die.

But, Vampires don't exsist, so this is all mute.

Getting back on topic for a moment.  I must say that Vega$ was an early favourite show of mine, with Robert Urich.  That was fantastic.

My 3 favourite shows as a child were The Professionals, Starsky & Hutch and Vega$.  Spelling made two of 'em.

Charmed = good for a perv
7th Heaven = good for thinking about what Jessica Biel and Beverly Mitchell would look like naked

Hey 'The Decapodian'

If you are going to steal someone else's art work, you need to ask them first.  Im talking about your signature.

Smilies aren't artwork.

So?  Make one then.  That one was made by someone on this board, NOT for use on this board. 

That smiley was made for another forum, which has since crashed.  I used that smiley ONCE on peel, which means he looked at it, took the direct link, and stole it as his own.  If he placed where/who he got it from, then maybe it would be ok, but he didnt.

And fyi, it doesnt really matter if you consider it artwork or not.  The person who made it considers it stolen, and therefore, it is.

Slackit02 has a point.

The Decopdian seems to have the brain power of a dead whale anyway, so this probably wont get through to him.

True. I imagine he looks a lot like his avatar. All wide eyed. Not a care in the world, or a thought in his head.
