- Carole Spelling, better known as Candy Spelling, has experienced publicity with her ties to The Carlyle Residences. The famed author and columnist had purchased a penthouse unit at The Century building in 2010 for $35 million. Her temporary home is a rental in The Carlyle while her suite undergoes extensive renovations. Spelling sold her family estate in 2011, and has been living in a 5,600 square foot unit at the Carlyle - tiny in comparison to her 56,500 square foot Manor - and is paying $28,000 a month.
- TMZ reported on a lawsuit that was filed against the landlord of the rental unit by Candy, alleging many claims. The suit says claims that Spelling "has a deal with the Carlyle unit owner to extend her tenancy at her option," but the owner is now trying to sell "and in the process he's breaking the deal by trying to force her out."
- Spelling also claimed that The Carlyle tried cheating her by double billing for utilities. She says they've also let unauthorized people use her private elevator.
- The eviction lawsuit was dismissed by the judge, who said "Mrs. Spelling had properly extended the lease term at the condominiums and was legally remaining in the premises." Her lawyers intend to go after the landlord to pay Spelling's legal bills.
