Tori Spelling takes Dean McDermott back, he tells friends, ‘I’ll never stop cheating!’

Tori Spelling

I don’t know how Tori Spelling does it. She consistently manages to get coverage in all three major tabloids. Tori gets a story in each tab this week, but this Star cover is the best one. Star has a huge cover story about Tori being “trapped in her marriage,” and the cover features grumpy Dean McDermott’s face as he exclaims, “I’ll never stop cheating!” Here comes another classic entry into the neverending saga of Dean’s wandering wang and the long-suffering Tori.

What’s funny about all of this drama is that the tabloids wouldn’t run these stories if two conditions weren’t met: (1) Someone in Tori’s camp is supplying all of the ready-made details; and (2) People must be interested in reading this stuff because they’re buying it. Star has featured Tori on several covers over the past year, so she must move copy for them. So they gave her another three-page story about her decision whether to give Dean the boot. I left out several paragraphs in the excerpt below about money because we’re all tired of hearing how poor Tori Spelling is. What is new? Tori has apparently decided she’ll never love Dean again, but she has decided to take him back anyway:

“This is your last chance. Don’t blow it!” Those were Tori Spelling’s decisive words, issued to her wayward husband as he begged her forgiveness following their nasty split earlier this year. Even though Dean McDermott cheated on her with a 28-year-old Canadian beauty in early December — among other trysts, Tori learned — friends say the star has finally, reluctantly agreed to take him back.

According to friends, Tori was on the verge of filing divorce papers just weeks ago, but she has since changed her mine. And now, even as rumors fly that Dean has been flirting with other women while in rehab, Tori has resigned herself to allowing her philandering husband back into her life. “In the end, Tori decded to take Dan back because she just couldn’t do this alone,” a pal tells Star. “But she’ll never forget the heartache he caused her with all his twisted lies. She made the decision based on practicalities, not with her heart.”

As Dean checked himself into rehab for “personal issues” on Jan. 23, in a desperate attempt to save his marriage after the cheating scandal broke, Tori, meanwhile, was forced to face the world alone, juggling her hectic home life with kids Liam, 6, Stella, 5, Hattie, 2, and Finn, 28 months, with her demanding work schedule for the upcoming ABC Family show Mystery Girls. “She wanted a fresh start and thought she could take on all the responsibilities of running the household, raising the children, and launchign ehr new show while her heart mended, but she got completely overwhelmed by it all,” a friend says. “She became very weepy. She was constantly on edge and had a terrible time sleeping. It was making her physically ill, and she finally had a breakdown, at one point yelling, “I can’t raise these kids alone!”

“Even though she hated herself for it, Tori finally capitulated and slowly began allowing Dean back into the family,” another source reports. Suddenly he was there at her side as she escorted the children through their daily routines. They started to look like a family again.

“Tori wanted to be strong,” the first insider adds. “She recognized that the relationship was dysfunctional; she had gotten used to living with a man who cheated for years, took her money and was verbally abusive. But she just couldn’t leave him.”

Despite Tori’s begrudging decision to reconcile with Dean, there’s a very real possibility that he might cheat again. After all, he was married to actress Mary Joe Eustace when he and Tori first hooked up, and he’s apparently had a string of lovers since their 2006 wedding too.

“Dean has bragged to his buddies about all the attention he gets from women,” reveals a friend. “He wants to work things out with Tori because he needs her financially. But privately, he’s said he’s not sure he’ll ever be able to stop cheating on her.”

Even now, as Dean fights to win back Tori’s trust, rumors have swirled that he’s been getting cozy with other women while in rehab! “He just can’t help himself when attractive women are around,” the friend explains. “He may not physically be hooking up with these women, but Tori sees flirting as emotional cheating. She wants to believe Dean when he swears the rumors aren’t true, but it’s hard for her to believe anything he says anymore.”

“The bottom line is: Tori will never be able to love Dean the way she once did even though she wants back that image of the picture-perfect family she created,” the friend adds. “She feels so terribly burned that it will take a long time for her to trust Dean again. She’s lost a tremendous amount of respect for him. And right now, that loving feeling is totally gone.”

Dean has bragged to his buddies about all the attention he gets from women.” *vom* See, that’s where I begin to doubt this whole infidelity story. Dean might think he’s a ladies’ man, but I don’t think that means what he thinks it means.

This week’s issue of InTouch has photos of Tori crying on her front porch as a friend consoles her. A friend says “Tori always looks like she’s just finished crying. Her face is gaunt; she’s been dressing haphazardly. She keeps saying she’s fine, but everytime I see her, she looks worse.” The Enquirer says Tori’s been leaning on Jennie Garth as they work on their new crime comedy show together. They are presumably swapping stories on how douchey their husbands are. Or in Jennie’s case, her ex-husband, Peter Facinelli.

Here are some photos of Tori on Wednesday afternoon. She’s smiling all over the place as she leaves an office with some friends. Maybe she’s a better actress than Donna Martin would have us believe.

    It is interesting how they photoshopped her to look like Kelly Rutherford.

    • Rice says:

      Thank you for that! I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure out who’s face was that on the front page. It sure ain’t Tori’s.

  2. Samigirl says:

    I will never feel sorry for her situation. He was married with a kid and in the process of adopting another one (not to mention her marriage) when they hooked up. She knows his history and if she chooses to stay with him, then it’s on her.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:


    • crab says:

      I 100% agree with you!

    • danielle says:

      Yeah, she brought this on herself.

    • MrsB says:

      Absolutely. Also I hope she wasn’t going for sympathy with this little story, because if anything it just makes her look more pathetic than sympathetic.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      That’s the whole thing with me.

      I mean, I could’ve bought that he wasn’t okay in his marriage, that they’d been unofficially separated for a while–that he just wanted to get out of an unhappy marriage, etc—but that’s not the case. Adoption, especially adopting a baby is not an easy thing to go through. Those people go through your life with a fine tooth comb–INCLUDING your relationship.

      So it’s extra sh-tty of him and her, especially him, to do something like that. I’m fully convinced that he left his wife for Tori because he thought that they’d be getting a big slice of the Spelling fortune in a couple of years. And he stayed because it wasn’t like Mary Jo would take him back, and he’d look extra douchey if he didn’t stay with Tori.

    • Deanne says:

      Seriously, we’re supposed to feel sympathy for Tori, when she’s cheated on by a man , who abandoned his infant daughter, son and wife of a dozen years, after knowing her less than three weeks.? No sympathy here. Did she think he’d respect the family unit he has with her any more than the one he decimated seven years ago? If she’s really stupid enough to stay with him “for the kids”, she has no one to blame but herself. Maybe now she understands how her ex and his ex-wife suffered.

    • Christin says:

      She went into this knowing full well his history, and so did he. It could have easily been her humiliating him. Let’s just hope another innocent child doesn’t enter this picture.

  3. Lark says:

    I may be a cynical bish, but I still think Tori is supplying all this info or stories to get some material for her next reality TV series/book/whatever or try and angle for a place on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Sure, tabloids make up crap all the time—but they don’t make up this much crap about a D lister like Tori unless Tori wants them too. My bet is she and Dean both have side-pieces, but she could see he was being messy as hell and decided to get out in front of the story and work it to her advantage.

    • starrywonder says:

      I think she is supplying info trying to get people interested in her again after her latest book bombed. I don’t believe at all she cares that he cheated she sees this as a way to get their names out there. Ugh. Famewhores both of them.

  4. someone says:

    I don’t think that “all the attention he gets from women” means Dean has had lots of affairs. He’s not hot and he’s not rich. The only likely reason someone would sleep with him is to run to Star and sell the story. If he’s had lots of affairs there would be way more women coming forward. Maybe his real problems are something like gambling and internet porn and this is just a cover.

    • Jaderu says:

      “The only likely reason someone would sleep with him is to run to Star and sell the story”
      But how much would they really pay them for the story? It’s not like you get set for life for selling to the tabloids.
      Plus, you’re still admitting you slept with this ugly penis wrinkle. Blechhhhh.

    • Nina W says:

      He’s not that famous, plenty of women could have slept with him without knowing who he was married to and, unless you follow the tabloids or their stupid shows, not recognize him.

  5. eliza says:

    I will NEVER believe she is too broke to get rid of him. Her mother would be THRILLED if Tori ditched him and would help her in a minute but Candy is not about to help Dean get Aaron Spelling’s money by helping THEM. They hated him and that is when the rift between Tori and her parents began.

    She needs to get a divorce and get her life together alone.

    I am still of the opinion though, that this is all for attention and hopes of a reality show reboot.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      Yup yup yup. There’s no legitimate reason to keep this guy. She needs a divorce STAT. If she thinks she needs help with the 4 kids, she’d be better off paying for nannies and getting her act together. Then we’d be reading “poor Tori going it alone.”

  6. Io says:

    So gross. Kick it to the curb and file for sole custody with visitation rights for him so she doesn’t have to pay child support.

  7. tikbean says:

    I think Helen Lovejoy said it best but won’t somebody think of the children. What kind of man keeps producing all these offspring if all he wants to do is get laid and have a good time. AND what kind of woman decides having children with a guy like this (don’t tell me you can’t tell men are shady because ohmygodyoucansotell) is a good idea?? These people. Yuck.

  8. AG says:

    Sorry to nitpick, but the headline should state “Tori Spelling takes Dean BACK.” ;)

  9. SamiHami says:

    If he cheats with you, he’ll cheat on you. It’s cliche, but there is a lot of truth there.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      It depends. There are some cheaters who only cheat once, or cheat because they feel like they are missing something from their partner–who never do it again, and then there are the serial cheaters. Or there are people who cheat for a reason, and those who cheat because they can–don’t know if I said that how I wanted to.

      I have a second cousin who is a serial cheater. His current wife was his girlfriend for ten years, while he was married to his first wife–two years into the relationship she moved down the street from them, so he could visit her whenever he wanted. When his first wife finally got tired of him, he married the girlfriend as soon as his divorce was final–the family didn’t meet the girlfriend until their wedding… the meantime, he’d been bringing some other girl to family events all summer (before he got married)–who we thought was the girlfriend. And now his current wife is mad that he always wants to go out to clubs, instead of spending time with her at home–she MET him at the club, what did she expect???

  10. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    Here’s a sorta OT–about Jennie Garth….

    Is it just me who thinks that Peter Facinelli didn’t necessarily cheat on her? What I honestly think happened is that that douche thought that he was too good for Jennie—and WAY more famous due to the Twilight movies and Nurse Jackie, and basically thought he could do way better than the ‘older’, mother of his children, and so he did–with some twenty something….the one that had that vag bearing dress.

    Such a douche. I can’t even stand to look at pictures of him, because he thinks he is the SEX. Not. I used to think he was cute, circa the first Twilight movie. Now all I see is Eau de Douche…..

    • Tammy White says:

      Actually I think he did cheat or had an emotional affair. Unlike quite a few in show business, Jennie Garth kept quiet for her kids sake. I could be wrong though.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I think that he just saw that there were a few young (er) women/actresses who were throwing themselves at him, because he was that guy from Twilight, and he saw a chance to get some non-breast feeding boobs and that was it. I don’t think we can even say that he left her for someone else. But I think he wants to be seen as some hot guy, and NOT a 40 year old father…..he’s still douchey. I would rather have my SO cheat on me, than for him to think that he can do so much better than me….

        I’m not sure if I like Jennie or not. I don’t blame her for milking it–but come on. Either come out and say what exactly it was that he did or didn’t do and leave it at that, OR don’t say anything at all.

  11. taxi says:

    Tori manufactures her own melodrama for attention & it has gotten really bo-r-r-r-ing. She has no discernible talent nor does he & I hope this particular gene pool has stopped reproducing.

  12. Size Does Matter says:

    Tori: “The best place to have a good cry on a friend’s shoulder is in front of the paps on the front porch of my six bedroom, seven bathroom $10,000 per month rental. There’s just no privacy anywhere else!”

  13. pnichols says:

    Her ex and his ex must be laughing their butts off.

  14. Pam says:

    I remember when these two hooked up and stood on the stage at Much Music and bragged about their sex life. Tori slammed MaryJo Eustace, Dean’s wife by claiming some women weren’t fertile. (Eustace had just adopted a child). They couldn’t keep their hands off each other and the MM audience loved it. All of these went down in Toronto, MaryJo’s town, where MJ was a celeb in her own right. To humiliate another woman by stealing her husband and then bragging about it on television. Is disgusting. I feel sorry for the kids, but Dean and Tori can go straight to h@ll as far as I’m concerned. They deserve all the hard times that are coming to them.

    • claire says:

      Mary Jo was also in the audience that night. According to her, Tori also tried to keep her out of some of the after-parties. There’s a video interview from that night where Mary Jo and her friends explain Tori lied and told security she had a restraining order against Mary Jo so Mary Jo should be asked to leave. Asking me to feel sorry for Tori and Dean is like asking me to feel sorry for Leann and Eddie – not going to happen.

  15. anne_000 says:

    The article makes it sound like they don’t already have a nanny or two or three. I bet they do. So imo, it’s not like that without him, she’s the only adult left in the house with four kids.

    Regarding the money issue, in November, Radar Online reported that Tori’s paying $3,000/month in rent for over 20,000 sq ft of storage units that contains millions of dollars worth of furniture, designer clothing, & accessories.

    The one who really needs intensive therapy in this case is Tori. Though she might think she’s benefiting by making tabloid drama, in the end, she’s making herself look really bad by purposely staying in this quagmire.

  16. roxy750 says:

    I swear this is all made up. They have 4 stinkin kids together—who has the time to cheat? And look at him? Honestly…….he’s no looker. C’mon now.

    • G says:

      ITA with you roxy about this being made up. I love how “the source” gives away all this humiliating info AND plugs Tori’s upcoming projects.
