In 2012, Candy starred in, and executive produced the two-part series "Selling Spelling Manor" for HGTV. The show reached the highest-ever fourth quarter-day rating for the network, with more than 4.2 million viewers tuning in to see Candy moving out of the legendary 56,000 square foot Hollywood mansion she built and shared with her husband and family for more than 20 years. With the success of that show, HGTV ordered a new three part series, "Beyond Spelling Manor," which aired in 2013. The series documented the construction of Candy's new home in Los Angeles and her search for an apartment in New York City.
Candy's first experience in reality television was as a celebrity panelist for one season of the E! Series "Bank of Hollywood," produced by Ryan Seacrest and hosted by Bryan Callen. Based on the UK series "Fortune: Million Pound Giveaway," the show aired in 2009-2010 and featured celebrities asked to donate their own money to everyday Americans asking for assistance for a wide variety of needs. In addition to Candy, the panelists included poker player Vanessa Rousso, publishing executive Sean Patterson and Pussycat Dolls singer Melody Thornton.
