Tori Spelling covers Us, how is she still scoring magazine covers?

Tori Spelling

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott’s cheating story broke last December. We’ve covered a steady supply of updates since then. Someone in Tori’s camp must have been leaking details to the tabloids every single week. Tori must sell well if the tabs were publishing this stuff. She was even the subject of several cover stories. That doesn’t happen just because information is handed to the tabloids. Lots of celebrities feed details to the tabs. Only a select few move enough copy to score regular covers.

I believe that Tori and Dean did set up this cheating story so they could score a new show. They live a lavish lifestyle and spend way too much money even though they’re chronically broke. They very badly need/want the cash. By the time the new True Tori Lifetime trailer arrived, everyone was already tired of hearing how playboy Dean was scoring with all da ladies (and da men). Tori stories used to rustle up a bit of sympathy here, but now no one cares.

This what I don’t get — Tori’s husband headed to rehab, and she immediately brokered a deal for this new show. She started filming within a week! It’s so obvious Dean and Tori have been faking it. Tori has still managed to score the latest Us Weekly cover story. She’s finally “breaking her silence” (even though she hasn’t really been silent, she’s been talking to the tabs all along). I’ve edited Tori’s quotes down to bulletpoints:

Cheating changes everything: “He was my soulmate, but he completely broke my heart. It makes you not trust anything that’s happened in your relationship. There are children involved. I need to try to figure this out. You don’t stop loving someone because they do something really bad to you. But until I figure that out, I don’t want the kids to know any different.”

Why she didn’t leave Dean: “I feel so judged, but it’s not black and white. If I can’t ever let my guard down again, then there can’t always be a relationship. I always said “If he ever cheated on me I would be out of there! Whether I can ever trust him again. That’s the big question.”

How she confronted Dean about cheating: “He was very nervous – I saw it in his face. He said that they had kissed but that was it. I knew in that moment the worst had happened. I said ‘I don’t believe you for one second. I don’t believe that’s all.”‘

Then Dean told her everything: “[Dean] talked me through the entire weekend with Emily. He didn’t want to get graphic. I didn’t want him to. We kept it to the facts. It wasn’t about feelings. I listened and made sure I didn’t show emotion. I didn’t cry. He didn’t cry. He sounded remorseful. He sounded like a husband who had gotten caught.”

No real reconcilation yet? “We haven’t had sex since December.”

[From Us Weekly]

E! has a new clip from True Tori where Tori talks about finding out about Dean’s affair. She sounds really “off.” Not upset at all. Almost happy? (She reminds me of my daughter trying to tell a lie when she was five years old and giggling behind her hands.) Tori’s doing this show because “I wanted people to get me, to see the real me, so that’s why I wanted to do this.” Uh-huh.

This week’s issue of People will also have a Tori & Dean feature. People spoke with a Tori source that says she is punishing Dean with this new show: “The decision to do this show is not coming from someone who is in a solid, good place. Tori is very, very upset and angry. A part of her wants to completely humiliate him and make him suffer in front of millions of people. She wants to have some sort of justice. She wants him to truly feel the pain of what he did to her.” And it has nothing to do with making bank? Riiiiight.

Dean was papped on Tuesday visiting a 12 Step Store. He bought stickers, books, “and meditation stuff.” Can I laugh at this obvious display for the reality show? What a waste of a shopping trip. I guess he can at least deduct it on his taxes next year as a work-related expense.

    jesus Her Face is just execrable!! She wants money she could start by suing her plastic surgeons!!

    Also: What a Misfire, she thought that cause Motherhood is the great whitewash and she got about 5 million coats of “baby” we were gonna sympathize and forget this whole Dean Cheating isnt “unforseen” or “unthinkable” or “his worst nightmare” more like, isnt this what ya’ll did to Mary Jo Eustace?

    • aenflex says:


    • I love you so much for using “execrable”.

      But yeah, I agree with everything you said here. He’s f*cking disgusting. She knew that and still got with it so that’s on her.

    • Christo says:

      Yes, while I think the “drag queen” comparisons are a harsh critique for some older women who have had plastic surgery, Tori looks like she could be a contestant on RuPaul’s DragRace.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        Pics like the above only validate my oath to never use fillers or mess with my face. I don’t know what I’ll look like in the future, but I know I wont have lumps, bumps, and bloat in my face that somehow come off looking like cellulite which seems the opposite of any of their intentions for messing with their face in the first place?

      • JenniferJustice–
        You ever hear that quote about aging and plastic surgery (I think someone on CB either came up with it, or repeated it, can’t remember which)– ‘I would rather have someone look at me and think I look ugly and old, than for them to look at me and think “Damn, she paid someone to do that to her face?”‘

        I must say I agree.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      To be fair to the plastic surgeons, her original face was pretty bad, too!

  2. Kiddo says:

    I don’t know, but someone make it stop. Please.

    • …but how do we do that?

      Is there a button we can push or something?

      • blue marie says:

        there should be an “Easy” button for that, it releases them into a black hole

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Brilliant, blue marie

        Heads off to Staples

      • Stephanie says:

        Can that same button take care of the Kardashians and Lohans, please??

      • Kiddo says:

        @Stephanie, the K’s need a “trap door”. As soon as they begin their nonsense, we could press a lever, and watch them fall through, maybe into a tank of piranha or a black hole in space. This should also include any of the housewives or socialites.

      • briargal says:

        And LeAnn and Eddie??? PLEASE TO ALL OF THEM!!!

      • Size Does Matter says:

        @Kiddo – trapdoor will need to be XL so the a$$es don’t get stuck on the way down.

    • Rice says:

      Funny story. Late last year on Yahoo news, there was a post about how Kim Kardashian “finally resurfaces” after giving birth. The most liked comment was a post that said: “So, who do you think is going to win the Superbowl? My money is on Baltimore.” I laughed ’til I cried. It was a subtle but effective shade.

  3. blue marie says:

    He cheated on his wife to be with Tori, I dunno maybe it’s just me but I call that getting what she deserves.*shrugs*

    Aww look, it’s a girl for Mila. Wonder what they’ll name her? I’m hoping for a Russian name.

    • Merritt says:

      Tori cheated on her ex-husband to be with Dean. They deserve each other.

    • MonicaQ says:

      That’s my thing–they cheated to be together. You think that Beady Eyed Golddigger wasn’t going to cheat AGAIN?!

      • I don’t feel bad for her, or for him. However, I would’ve LOVED to be a fly on the wall, when he realized that Tori wasn’t going to inherit as much money as he thought she would (which is why I’m sure he laid his greasy, skuzzy golddigging ‘charms’ on her in the first place)…..I would’ve loved to see the look on his face. Such a dumbass.

  4. Lark says:

    Ha, so I’m not the only one who thinks the whole tabloid thing is being milked by them for the reality show. I seriously think she and Dean probably had an open relationship (they both left their spouses to be with one another, but apparently were apart a lot) but Dean got sloppy and she panicked when she realized it was going to get out there so wham, bam, thank you m’am she decides to milk it for all it’s worth and her reality show. Anyway, just my conspiracy theory.

    • Wren says:

      Can you buy tabloid covers? Seriously, this is just an advertisement for their show. If you can buy ad space on air and in print, maybe you can buy tabloid covers too. I would believe that more than her face and tired story sells magazines.

    • So, serious question—how do we decide who buys tabloid covers and who doesn’t? Like you *could* make the same argument that has been made for another tabloid favorite, that the tabloids see what’s happening, and latch onto it. So who’s to say who bought the covers/feed the tabloids quotes, and who’s to say that the tabloids just ran with what they wanted?

      *For the record, I totally think Tori is leaking all of this BS. But it is interesting to think about. It’s all about our perception, in a lot of cases, I think–mixed in with a little fact (I hope).

  5. Tracy says:

    Tori, Give LeAnn a call. You two can bond over the “prizes” you are stuck with.

    • briargal says:

      All four of them are disgusting pigs!!

      • Tracy says:

        If there were not kids involved I would just laugh at all 4 of them. In both cases these idiots married each other to justify being cheaters and prove to the world that they are an epic love story. They deserve to be miserable.

  6. deb says:

    It’s one thing to want to put YOURSELF & your partner out there and air your dirty laundry in public, but in doing so, she is also expsosing her kids to god knows what kind of psychological trauma, public ridicule, etc., etc., Very disturbing

    • briargal says:

      Especially disgusting when just a few months ago–before the “cheating episode”–she complained about the word divorce being on the cover along with her and Dean’s pic and the kids seeing that and getting upset. Can we say hypocrite???

    • lucy2 says:

      And this was the woman who once freaked out and carried on because their kid saw a tabloid saying they were splitting up. To then turn around and do this…disgusting.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Completely agree with all of you. They are intentionally milking every drop out of this for their own publicity without any regard to what it’s doing to their children. So sad and disgusting.

  7. Josephine says:

    She scores magazines the same way all reality trash scores coverage — humiliating themselves for the sake of publicity. No moment is too private, no family member is spared exploitation, nothing is too debasing for people like her, he Kardashians, that one with the 8 kids, the stupid housewives, the ones who dress toddlers like little prostitutes and the rest. For some reason, Americans love looking at people debase themselves, and people are willing to do it for money.

  8. briargal says:

    Saw just a bit of the clip about their new show and she sure is playing the “poor me” card trying so hard to make people feel bad for her. Not going to happen for me. She deserves all the heartache she gets. I do feel for the poor kids brought into this horrible mess.

    • briargal says:

      Also if she is doing this not only for the money but to humiliate Dean, she sure isn’t thinking about all the humiliation the kids are going to suffer! What a wonderful mother!!!

    • homegrrrl says:

      It just show how children of wealthy materialistic people can be abused. Her mother and father were such uptight folks that she was a forgotten play thing who was criticized by her mother from a painfully early age. When she was about 8yrs old, she was dressed up for a party and asked her mother, “do I look pretty”?, to which her mother answered, “when you get your nose job, you might be pretty”. So classical looks were never in the cards for Tori, and her mother had constant disdain. Candy Spelling has a doll collection in an hermetically sealed portion of her mansion, does that not scream “crazy”?

      So Tori has been wanting a family, to be the mother she never had. Also, she is a show business person, born and bred, and of course she is doing her best to find income in the only way she knows. Every abused person takes on a dysfunction, and Tori’s is Dean. I guess I’m for the underdog here, and can understand that Tori was abandoned, not literally a war baby on a door step, but she was emotionally abandoned by her critical materialistic mother, and that leaves deep wounds.

      • Blannie says:

        I agree with what you’re saying, but Tori (more than 99% of the rest of us) had the financial resources to get the counseling to deal with her childhood hurts. Instead she has chosen (as an adult woman) to sell her soul for the fleeting attention of pity fame. My empathy for her childhood is outweighed by my disgust for her adult choices. And she has continued the lineage of a screwed up childhood for her own four children. What a legacy.

      • briargal says:

        @Blannie– Precisely! A lot of people have way worse childhood lives than poor lil ol’ Tori and they don’t turn into sacrificing their kids to become famewhores like Tori! She has no consideration for anyone other than herself and yet gets all upset because her kids may have seen the gossip cover saying her and Dean may be splitting. She is trying to get people to feel soooo sorry for her and make Dean the baddie. She sure didn’t think about Dean’s first wife while spreading her legs for her now prize hubby, did she? I think they are both disgusting wastes of oxygen!

      • Honestly, I can’t feel bad for her, if her mother called her ugly or whatever, and that’s affected her, to the point to where she’s behaving like THIS. We all have our choices to make. And in the end, it’s all on us. Not some bullshit that was said to us thirty years ago. You make your own decisions. You can let stuff affect you for the positive, or the negative.

        And to be honest, I don’t think Tori is/was all that torn up about it. If she really felt that her parents hated her, the way she looked THAT MUCH–she would’ve went out and made it on her own. She wouldn’t have gotten onto a show, because her dad was the producer. She wouldn’t have had them lay out a couple million dollars on a wedding that barely lasted a year. And she wouldn’t be trying to get money out of her mother, after her father died.

        She would be DONE, especially if it was just her mother who was a total biatch to her.
        Also–my mom was truly abused as a child. Tori has had every advantage growing up, and she (apparently) had a good man, who married her for her—he wasn’t some low rent actor trying to get a foot into HW–he was a playwright (who I believe has some family money as well) who did his thing in NY, and trusted his wife, to act like his wife.

  9. Carol says:

    She wants him to suffer in front of millions of people?

    A little delusional – maybe thousands, hundreds, tens. Maybe.

  10. Jezzy says:

    Tori: “I don’t want the kids to know any different.”

    …so I’ll go tell a public magazine this so they can put this on every cover available in print and the internet. Privacy, ya’ll!

    I suppose it goes without saying that most people are not surprised. That old adage of “how you get them is how you lose them?” Dean cheated on and left his wife to be with Tori. (And I think she also cheated on her husband to be with Dean? I think).

    Nonetheless, I don’t understand why she is hashing this out in a magazine. It seems so tasteless, especially when she says she doesn’t want her kids to know.

  11. mel says:

    I don’t like either of them…that being said…in all honesty…they have no other choice in ways to earn money…so at least they know this…work it…and are not on the dole. They’ve made their bed with reality tv and now they realize they must sleep in it.

  12. Clever hand says:

    I just want to say that there are plenty of people who still have no idea how publicity works and think this stuff is all true. For as many of us as there are that see right through tori there are still idiots that buy it.

  13. Jezi says:

    I call bullshit. A remorseful man or woman does get emotional when caught if they care. He didn’t cry????? I know not every situation is the same but when it happened to me he cried. I get that not wanting details but it seems so forced and faked.

  14. Pandy says:

    If it is true, I feel sorry for her, egardless of how their relationship started. It’s beyond painful to have to deal with infidelity.

  15. miasys says:

    Sweet smoking baby Jesus. That pursed-lips picture is going to give me nightmares. This chick will do anything for a buck, including peddling her faux family drama for all to see. I feel really sorry for their kids.
