Tori Spelling ignored Dean’s cheating for years because he’s a sex addict?

Tori Spelling

Tori Spelling’s marriage drama dominates all three of the major tabloids this week. Crazy, right? I guess we can blame the slow holiday news cycle for constant coverage of Dean McDermott’s wandering wang. Let’s get back up to speed in short order. Last week we heard how Dean cheated on Tori with a Canadian random. Emily Goodhand said Dean was whining about his “sexless marriage” (which has somehow still produced four children), so she slept with him several times because why not?

Then we heard how Tori was refusing to publicly acknowledge the cheating but gave Dean hell at home and wouldn’t let him move out. Tori also kept the dream alive with a happy-family New Year’s photo in which all parties looked completely dead-eyed and miserable. Let’s kick off the tabloid addendums with a good, old-fashioned tale of sex addiction:

The shot, which she posted on her website, was classic Tori Spelling. Her four kids, lined up in front of a sparkling Christmas tree in Norman Rockwell glory. Naturally, she backed it up with words. “We’re spending the day together — cuddling, cooking, baking, unwrapping gifts, eating, watching movies and counting our blessings.” Tori, 40, wrote on her blog. But one thing she failed to mention was the elephant in her living room — breaking news reporting that her husband, Dean McDermott, had recently had a one-night stand during a business trip to Canada with a 28-year-old named Emily Goodhand, who was cliaming that Dean told her he had a “sexless marriage.” Tori, it seemed, was using the shot of her kids to convince the world that everything was hunky-dory.

Now Star has learned from sources that the episode was hardly a fluke and that Dean, 47, is a serial cheater who has bedded at least two other women during their seven-year marriage. And Tori has known about it the whole time.

“I think Tori has known about Dean’s cheating for years,” a source claims. “He has two girls he regularly sees, and Tori knows about it. She keeps threatening to kick him out but then never follows through. She loves him, and she tells herself he cheats because he needs the sex and that it’s an addiction.” The insider adds that she is demanding that he go to rehab, but so far Dean is resisting.

“Tori feels completely hopeless and at a loss as to how to handle Dean’s marital indiscretions,” another friend says. “And the truth is, she doesn’t have a clue how many other women are out there. She is worried they might start coming out of the woodwork.”

So far, Tori has remained mum about the scandal, but behind the scenes she’s terrified it will destroy the brand she has created around a happy family image — thus the happy family act. “She’s frantic to keep details of Dean’s other escapades under wraps. It’s all about business,” says the source. And Tori admitted in her memoir, Spelling It Like It Is, that her impulsive real estate buying got her into so much financial trouble that she put her family in debt. She has also completely blown through her $18 million fortune, the source says. Tori fears that if Dean dumps her with four kids, she’ll be forced to ask her mother, Candy, for help. “There’s no way she wants to do that!” says the friend. “So she is pretending everything’s fine.”

[From Star, print edition, January 13, 2014]

Soooo Dean is now an alleged sex addict, so Tori excuses his cheating? Or maybe she doesn’t really tolerate it but doesn’t want to ask her mom with help raising the kiddos. What a mess of theories, and that’s not all.

In Touch repeats the mistress pregnancy story we covered yesterday. Apparently Dean and Ms. Goodhand (LOL) did it without any protection or birth control. Gross. The Enquirer says Tori is “living a twisted reality” and “would rather be a reality TV star with her husband and kids at her side than face the truth.

The best reason for Tori’s lack of foot in Dean’s rear end comes from Radar, who says Tori and Dean never signed a prenup before getting hitched. Ruh-roh.

    I think it’s a matter of money: she is not a good actress, she hasn’t inherited the Aaron Spelling fortune, the only successfull brand she has is the “Tori and Dean”, if they split I don’t think she could be capable to re-brand herself.

  2. Jessica says:

    From the original story: “The two stopped talking and had protected sex, she told the mag.”

    So she told the original magazine that they had protected sex, but now is claiming they had unprotected sex and she might be pregnant? Which is it? Get your story straight, girl.

    As far as Dean, why is it that whenever a man cheats the excuse is always “sex addict”? Why can’t people just admit they are cheaters? Why does it have to be some sort of uncontrollable addiction?

  3. bettyrose says:

    Ugh no one is worth this crap. Sucks that you had four kids with a total dbag, but it’s time to kick him out.

    • DrM says:

      Agreed. The kids WILL adapt. And so will Tori. Better to be a single Mum than live with someone who cheats. And she would have a TON of new material to work with should they separate. I feel badly for her…it wouldn’t be an easy situation for anyone, but much harder with your life in the public eye.

  4. WHAAAT? I thought that if nothing else went through her thick skull, that she would know to make that golddigger of hers sign a freaking prenup! ESPECIALLY if she thought there was a chance in hell that she would get to see any of that money. That’s probably why her father cut her out of the will–not because she was cheated on her husband w/another married man, but because she didn’t want to make him sign a prenup. I wouldn’t want that greasy douche getting his dirty fingers all over my money either, simply because he got to lay on my daughter’s stomach for a couple of years.

    ‘Meh’ on being a sex addict. I don’t think it’s true. I think it’s just tabloid bs, trying to put another angle in this story.

    • Christin says:

      There was plenty of money from his estate to go around, plus there are two sides to every story. Candy is portrayed badly, but I really wonder if both her parents simply didn’t trust her judgment. I can’t say I blame them, the more we learn about these two.

      • What I didn’t like was that she just expected him to hand over a good chunk of his money. If my parents had money, I would never expect for them to give me any of it, spend any of it on me, past my 18th birthday. It’s not her money. I don’t care if Candy was planning on buying every single doll in existence with that money–it is not Tori’s money. Her father left it to her mother. End of story. And it’s not like Tori was some young 20 something, who might not’ve been mature enough to NOT lash out when she didn’t get any of the money–bitch was in her early thirties. Just greedy.

        And wtf does she do for a living? I honestly have never heard of her, outside of this site.

      • Christin says:

        Agree with all of this. Other than 90210 and that reality show, I don’t know what she’s done. Had it not been for her father, does anyone think she could have landed a good role on a hit series? I certainly don’t think so.

      • jenna says:

        Virgilia: I strongly disagree with your entire comment. I’m a mother of 21 yr old son and were I worth billions couldn’t imagine not sharing it with my beloved boy. How weird and ICE COLD would that be? Seriously. I’m so happy we share between ourselves and help each other along in life. Your comment made me shudder. Brr. NOw obviously if Toris dad thought buddy was a gold digger, I totally agree not leaving a bigger inheritance that could be exploited. But thats not your point, your point was that its ok for parents to turn into selfish f*cking assholes the second you turn “18.” I call that abandonment. And if not abandonment, as I said, its ice-cold. That’s like, dumping your kids, Why? As if when a human body turns 18 (legal age decided by the STATE – what a JOKE it is letting the “state” determine ANYTHING EVER LOL) one is miraculously and suddenly fully independent and self-sufficient. And what a crock of sh*t that is. At this moment I feel so blessed to have such a loving, mutually supportive relationship with my son. I’ll always have his back and he mine….I’ll have his till he’s fully on his way…and he’ll have mine when I’m old and gray.

      • Meredith says:

        I know Tori doesn’t seem to get along with her mother (who does really?) but I’m not sure she would need Candy’s money more if Dean left. I don’t think Dean really brings in much money for the wife and kids. But if Tori’s “brand” is the happy family image, then a divorce could hurt her ability to earn money from the “brand”. And then Candy would have her in a vice grip. What a mess – money sure didn’t buy this family happiness.

      • lucy2 says:

        I agree with Virgilia – it’s not the kids’ money. If the remaining parent WANTS to help the adult kids or be generous with them, and they have a good relationship, then that’s great. But I don’t think any adult, especially one who’s made good money on their own, should EXPECT their parents to hand over a chunk of change. I know a couple of adults (30s and 40s) who basically live off their parents simply because they know they can.
        Tori’s father gave her a role on a hugely popular TV show and fame (neither of which she’d have gotten on her own, I’m sure) which led to her having a lengthy television and book career. He also left her an inheritance that should have gotten her through any slow times, or provided for her kids to go to college someday. She blew it. I assume her father had his doubts, and it seems he was right.

      • NerdMomma says:

        Jenna, I don’t think that’s what Virgilia was saying. She’s just saying she wouldn’t expect money to be handed to her. I know there are millionaires and billionaires who have famously said they’d never hand money to their kids. Can’t remember who but one who came up from nothing said he’d never rob his kids of the opportunity to learn the value of hard work. Tori’s dad gave her opportunities with roles and plastic surgery. He did all he could on the acting front. Maybe he should have sent her to college instead. She really needs some job skills.

      • Nina W says:

        Treating adults as children helps no one. Children have to grow up and become financially independent adults. Parents who don’t expect their children to become financially responsible on their own are not doing them any favors. Children are lucky to receive love and care until the age of 18, and exceptionally lucky if their parents can put them through college or help them buy a house but more than that should never be expected. Tori’s father made piles of money and Tori simply does not have any right to more than what he left her in his will. I’m sure it’s a struggle for her but she’s already burned through $18 million, more than enough to keep all 5 of them comfortable, and I have no sympathy for her. She’s an adult and she needs to learn how to be responsible with her money. End of story. I don’t care how rich Candy is.

      • Valois says:

        Nina: In my country, parents are obliged to do so until the kids are 25 or 28 I believe. It’s a rather complex system, but the point is: You’re getting money from the social system if you’re parents do not make a lot of money. If they earn enough, than they need to pay.

        Not saying children should take it for granted! Just wanted to add that :)

      • jjva says:

        “Can’t remember who but one who came up from nothing said he’d never rob his kids of the opportunity to learn the value of hard work.”

        @NerdMomma: I think it was billionaire investor Warren Buffett.

    • Montréalise says:

      It seems that Tori married a gold digger who doesn’t have any money of his own, doesn’t have a job and is content to have his wife support him; she didn’t make him sign a prenup, has blown through her inheritance, and is a spendthrift who keeps racking up debt on impulsive and ill-timed real estate purchases. If I were Candy Spelling, I wouldn’t help her out financially, either.

    • MavenTheFirst says:

      @jenna,

      ITA with you. To be cut out of the will sends a powerful primal message. You are, in effect, disowned, and abandoned. The parent has cut the cord. IMO, you have to be really evil for that to happen to you. I don’t think Tori is evil but, then, I know little about her.

    • Ok says:

      Virginia — I wouldn’t want that greasy douche getting his hands on my money just because he Kaye’s on my daughters stomach for a couple of years…….

      Too funny. I almost spit tea all over the keyboard with your comment. Too funny

    • Juliette says:

      FYI – - Not all property is created equal. Even without a prenuptial agreement, any money that is acquired through inheritance IS NOT MARITAL PROPERTY. Only marital property is subject to equitable division during divorce.

      Although it doesn’t matter because Tori did not inherit a large sum of money from her father, if she had, that money would be considered hers alone – sole, separate, inheritance from a parent – not subject to division.

      • Good to know–but I meant it in a way that they’re married. And who’s to say that when her father died (which was right after they got married, correct?), that she wouldn’t have given him what he wanted? It’s not that I think he would legally get any of the money–but I would not want to give a huge sum of money to my daughter, when I think she married a golddigger. Because one way or another, that money’s going to end up in his hands.

  5. Christin says:

    It is probably a good thing that she did not get a larger chunk of her father’s fortune. I don’t necessarily dislike her, but I can’t feel sorry for her or her husband.

    It doesn’t surprise me that they are playing out a charade. There has always been a whiff of insecurity in her actions and comments. I’m just amazed he can land three women.

  6. eliza says:

    What did this nit wit expect? A cheating man who went after her (money) knowing she was also married to be faithful down the road???? Tori is getting exactly what she deserves. She helped end two marriages, flaunted her perfect homespun life for the world to see (including his family he left for her) and played the “poor little rich girl” theme to the hilt to line her pockets. I have no sympathy for her, just the children she and Dean brought into this world who will ultimately be the ones to suffer the ramifications of their parents selfish choices.

    Boo hoo. Your husband is a sex addicted, cheater. Welcome to the lives of many women. It sucks but you deal with it and move on. It is never easy but unlike most women, she does have more resources and support at her disposal.

    I am not in a very sympathetic mood today.

  7. blue marie says:

    I love how when a man cheats it almost always becomes a sex addiction instead of him just being an a-hole who can’t keep it in his pants.

    • decorative item says:

      Yep! He’s not just a cheater, he has an ILLNESS and needs help, love, and most of all the support of his long suffering wife. *eyes rolling right out of my skull*

      • MonicaQ says:

        Let a woman cheat though and she’s the SLORE-MONSTER.

        Not saying it would be ok, cheating is wrong but notice it’s always these dudes who have sex addictions and when was the last chick we saw that had one?

        And it always kills me the response of some guys: “He’s famous. Of *course* your husband won’t cheat because he’s not famous. He doesn’t have beautiful women throwing themselves at him at all hours of the day,” as if it’s cool to reduce dudes down just to their sexual impulses. or my favorite: “It’s biology.”

        I know you can be addicted to anything technically and obviously sex releases some serious endorphins but if they could get away with it, every guy in Hollywood would have “sex addiction”.

      • Cecilia says:

        Yep…My poor husband has a disease. He just can’t seem to help it. Come on…let’s call a spade a spade.

      • Meredith says:

        But while the family tolerates the addiction (drugs, sex, booze) and covers for the person, the problem only gets worse. Sure he may be a sex addict or just an a**hole but while she ignores it and stays in denial, it will just get worse because he will be getting away with the behaviour.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Yeah, I’ve always thought “sex addict” was a convenient excuse for just being a douche.

  8. Patricia says:

    Has anyone in real, non-Hollywood and non-tabloid and non-pr life ever actually known of a case of sex addiction? It’s probably an extremely rare condition and yet every other cheating Ahole in Hollywood is suffering with this elusive disease. What a load of crap.
    Seriously if you have ever heard of it in real life I’d love to know about it!

    • Syko says:

      I don’t really believe in it. We make up various addictions to excuse bad behavior.

    • MonicaQ says:

      http://www.webmd.com/sexual-conditions/features/is-sex-addiction-real usually it’s called “Hypersexual disorder” considering what the word “addiction” means.

      I knew one guy that had it but it was to porn–gay porn and he was straight and married. Lost his job at a firm over it and his wife left him soon after. He tried to describe it to me as “if every minute you day dream about bunnies or Adventure Time or whatever you day dream about–replace it with porn. Now think about how often your mind wanders in a day.”

      I don’t know, I felt bad for him because he is a really nice guy but then again, I can’t fathom most addictions like meth when you know you’re just going to be screwed up in the end.

    • Jaded says:

      I actually do believe there are people with addictive personality disorders with sex being one of the addictions they do to an extreme. I’ve known people like that, both men and women, and it’s like any other addiction, i.e. alcohol or drugs, an impulse they can’t control, even when they know it will hurt their partner. Now a lot of cheating scumbags try to hide behind the “I’m a sex addict” story to try to justify their behaviour and rush off to rehab, but I don’t think Dean is a sex addict, he’s simply a cheating scumbag.

    • Andrea says:

      My ex bf was a sex addict (we dated for 3 years in college). We would have sex everyday, sometimes 2x a day(I have a high sex drive also due to PCOS), and he would acknowledge that he’d masturbate every time I took a shower or left the house! He also was addicted to video games and had contemplated peeing himself rather than stop playing. He had a very addictive personality. It is very possible to be a sex addict as with any addiction if you have an addictive personality.

  9. Michele says:

    The responsibilities of real life have left Dean feeling neglected yet again. But it’s not his fault, y’all! His penis has needs, yo!

    Tori’s got the means to raise those children on her own. Not the ideal situation, but workable. Better to just cut Dean lose and move on. That guy is never going to grow up – he’ll always put his needs before those of anyone else. He shouldn’t be surprised when his children want nothing to do with his selfish ass.

  10. paola says:

    Ms. Goodhand. LOL!

    I bet no one beats her on foreplays

  11. Nicolette says:

    Amazing what people will do or overlook for fame, at any cost. It’s pathetic.

  12. Kara says:

    Not too familiar on her story but why does it seem like her & her parents hate each other so much? Can someone fill me in on that? Thanks guys!

    • Seapharris7 says:

      Tori’s father, the infamous Aaron Spelling, blew an insane about of money on her wedding. Tori & that husband didn’t even make it a year before Dean-Gate, which was around the same time Aaron was becoming more sick & suffered a stroke, leading to a lot of animosity on Aaron’s part. When Aaron died in 06′ he left the majority of his estate to Candy (his wife/Tori’s mom). I’m sure it wasn’t the payday Tori or Dean expected & Tori has constantly leaked “poor not so rich girl” stories to the media.

  13. smee says:

    The last time I paid any attention to Tori Spelliing she was in 90210. I have no idea who her droopy-eyed husband is – so I googled him. According to Wiki, he and Tori got it on the first day they met on set despite both being married. He was in the process of adopting a child (that he didn’t go thru with) and already had a son with his wife. This is the bottom of the gene pool, people.

    This whole thing stinks of publicity generation for profit for her and the mags. I feel sorry for all of the children involved in this tawdry drama.

    • Christin says:

      I have been reading an interview with his ex, Mary Jo. They were married 12 or 13 years. He broke the news that he had found his soul mate in his new co-star as Mary Jo was trying to care for the newly adopted baby, who was less than a month old. They were on a vacation when he blindsided her with the news.

      She completed the adoption as a single parent. They also have a son together.

      I’ve read comments alluding that it was a mess how these two got together. Mary Jo is hopefully getting a chuckle out of this latest chapter, as Tori allegedly made fun of her age, fertility, etc.

      • lucy2 says:

        Because of all that, I feel bad for the all the kids involved, but not for Tori. What did she expect? Seeing how he treated his first wife and children wasn’t enough of a red flag?

      • That’s what I didn’t get. Because there was no way that he could’ve told Tori some bs story about him and his wife being unofficially separated, or anything like that–they were adopting a baby together! Adoption agencies go over your life with a fine tooth comb–you really think that they’d let a couple that had issues adopt a child? They were about together as they were going to be….but apparently that wasn’t enough.

        Such a douche. A golddigging douche–he saw his payday. Too bad it wasn’t as big as he would’ve hoped.

    • claire says:

      And on top of that Tori was slamming his wife in the press and lying about things to mess with Mary Jo’s career. No sympathy for her. She gets what she deserves.

  14. GeeMoney says:

    I just feel bad for her. Regardless if she knew about his cheating or not, all of these stories are just awful.

    I don’t know if it’s karma or what (some people think it is), but I hope that two of them can work it out. I actually like them together (I’ve watched their show… it’s actually entertaining and cute).

    And I’ll probably get crap for saying that I’m pulling for them, but oh well.

    • Sloane Wyatt says:

      You’ll get no crap from me, GeeMoney.

      You’re a kind soul who wants people to be happy, and you don’t make a point of judging them for their transgressions. If more people were like you, they’d be so much happier because they’d be free from bitterness. If you are able to detach from the painful memories toxic people leave behind, you leave room for your own bliss.

      • GeeMoney says:

        Thanks for the kind comments.

        I actually read her first book, Storitelling, and I thought that it was really good. She married her first husband for all of the wrong reasons, and then married Dean for all of the right ones. I guess that’s why I’m pulling for her. They seem genuinely happy together.

        I don’t condone how they got together or anything, though. But when I read her book, it was just nice to hear her say that she finally found someone who loved her for her, and not for someone that she “should” be.

        PS – I do my best not to judge others, because I’m not perfect and I’m no saint, lol.

    • Trashaddict says:

      I have to admit I feel bad for her too. Which is weird because I don’t really like her. But maybe it’s because she’s quirdier and more human than the Goopster, whom I wouldn’t feel one bit sorry for, if her marriage deep-sixed.

  15. Vanderhootchie says:

    Could be she is just embarrassed. I certainly would be.

  16. anne_000 says:

    I read that her parents forced her to have a pre-nup w/ her first husband & that she was grateful for it later on when that marriage went south. I’m guessing she didn’t get a pre-nup w/ Dean because the father was too ill to force her to do so the second time around.

  17. neelyo says:

    ‘Tori fears that if Dean dumps her with four kids, she’ll be forced to ask her mother, Candy, for help. ‘

    THIS is the FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC remake I want to see!

  18. Zwella Ingrid says:

    What will a lack of prenup mean in practical terms? If they are broke or in bad financial shape already?

  19. bailie says:

    I guess what comes around goes around.
    I don’t know, if it’s true, but I heard that Tori cheated with Dean when they were both married and just after or during Dean finalized adoption of a child with his wife in Canada.
    I believe Tori to be a bad actress and I mean really bad, the only reason she was acting at all
    was, because of her father.
    I find her very unattractive, that horrid white blond fake looking hair, silly red lips and a truly bad boob job, not to mention her ugly face.
    If she suspected her husband cheating why bring 4 children into the world with him, is that responsible? Cheating is never right in my opinion doesn’t matter who does it and I hope for the sake of their kids that they can resolve it without hurting them.
    Oh, she is such unattractive woman, I think she only had 2 husbands, because of her potential to get her father’s portion of the fortune.
    I’m not surprised, if she would have to pay a guy to stay with her.

  20. BweeeeeerayawwwdnBe says:

    I think I’ll use that line on my GF. Errrr, maybe not.

  21. OutoftheLoop says:

    Ugh, just saw a commercial for Chopped Canada and who will be hosting? Dean McDermott. Oh brother.

  22. MSat says:

    As we know from Mary Jo’s book, Dean is a master manipulator. I would not be surprised at all if he has managed to sweet talk his way out of this and fed Tori a line of BS. Maybe he’s even convinced her that this is somehow her fault for not giving him the required amount of sex.

    It’s not uncommon for a narcissist like Dean to feel jealous of his own children – they likely take up most of Tori’s energy and attention, even if they have nannies helping out. Being off on his own in Canada was a chance for him to feel like Mr. Stud again and get his old persona back.

    My prediction: Tori will try to salvage this, but it won’t work. They’ll be separated by Easter.

  23. Sprite says:

    I think she doesn’t want to aknowledge because of the way their relationship started.

  24. GirlyGirl says:

    Sex addiction is bs created by Hollywood PR hacks

    Dean is just a d-bag, I’ve seen him around Toronto and he’s just disgusting.

    The people who thought he’d be a good host to the CDN version of whatever cooking game show crap he ‘hosts’ should have their heads examined

  25. madchen says:

    Her first husband was quite cute and I thought well suited to her. I never got the attraction to Dean who looks like a beer chugging mess and can’t act his way out of a paper bag. I always thought he must have recognized her fragility or weakness and exploited the beejeezus out of it in hopes of financial gain. They fell in ‘love’ way too fast and discarded their old lives with alarming ease. I think she actually sent her husband #1 a fax from the set where she met Dean, letting him know the marriage was over.

  26. jferber says:

    Dean just reeks sleaze. Tori was a fool to fall for this con man.

  27. Cinderella says:

    Much like that crazy country singer, Tori grew up getting whatever she wanted. She doesn’t know the word no. Typical spoiled child.

    She was probably warned about Dean from day one, but refused to listen. Now he’s humiliating her and her children, but she’ll keep him around just to prove she was not wrong in her choice.

    Candy is no dummy. Eccentric, maybe, but not dumb. She knew what Dean was all about.

  28. bettyrose says:

    I’m so fracking over it with women who choose to let men treat them this way (or vice versa, but that’s less common, let’s face it). Yeah, this guy is a douche, but you, Tori, chose to cheat with him, have four babies with him, blow off college, not develop any real professional skills, and stand by him while he repeatedly hurt and humiliated you. The thing is, Tori, you had every opportunity in life handed to you. You didn’t inherit a fortune from your family, like maybe you had planned, but you attended the best schools, had money to go to college, and continue to have enough name recognition that you won’t end up on the streets with four Spelling children if you leave this dbag. Frankly, you are the prime example of why all parents should force their children to develop job skills. No sympathy. None.

  29. But Why says:

    WT.EFFIN.H, now a days its so normal to cheat and USE ADDICTION as the reason. EFF THIS TALK.she doesnt want to look bad, so she acts like her nose is bleeding, he didnt have the BALLS to talk to his wife, for a solution.Now i know that with kids, mommy is the one mostly TIRED (FOR HAVING TO ORDER THE NANNY’ S ALL DAY), but come on…doesnt mean they cant talk about things. The easy way out, is the chicken way.Why be a REAL, when you can be a coward?

  30. Amsterdamned says:

    where is my comment? Girly girl, just summed it al up.

    Tori blew through 18 MILLION DOLLARS? That is NOT chump change, and proves exactly why she couldn’t be trusted with more of her father’s money. Clearly he knew that, and I think that above all is why she didn’t get more. Anyone should be able to live a luxurious life without lifting a finger on 18 million dollars. Pissing that away? Ridiculous!

    I think growing up in an insanely rich, famous Hollywood family was more of a hindrance to Tori’s development. Not all the riches in the world could turn her into a decent actress, not all the cosmetic procedures could turn her into a bombshell. Her mother was openly disparaging of her looks and that’s gotta hurt, so she lashed out at her parents. Now I’m not defending her actions vis-à-vis her adulterous relationship with Dean, nor am I feeling sorry for her because of her lack of acting skills and bad plastic surgery choices. What I do think is that her parents failed her by accentuating the negative instead of the positive and, like other posters, didn’t encourage her to get a decent education. She’s a clever woman business-wise, street smart, and has a guileless kind of humour that comes through very strongly, but she chose the Hollywood lifestyle and ended her marriage with a decent guy for a sleazeball who thought he could get a free ride on the Spelling gravy train. I hope for the sake of her 4 kids that life becomes better for her.

    I hope for her children’s sake that this is not true. It’s kind of horrifying to think of these children growing up in a fake family for the sake of fame and money. Even if she just puts up with this because she genuinely loves Dean, what is this teaching her kids?
