Tori Spelling has a new video interview posted on US Weekly’s website, and the more she talks the more I find myself rolling my eyes and hoping she’ll go away. She’s promoting her latest book, Mommywood, and continues to talk about her allegedly difficult weight loss and her estranged relationship with her mother, which has been playing out in the media. All of that is somewhat old news, but one thing that surprised me is that Tori, like some other high-profile cheaters before her, is willing to talk about falling in love with also-married Dean McDermott on the set of a Lifetime movie of the week. In fact Tori goes into surprising detail about the moment she met Dean.
Tori described when she first saw Dean as “like a million blocks of hearts first fell on me,” and added that she knew right then that she wanted to spend the rest of her life with him. She just happened to be married at the time to someone else, and so was Dean. In fact, Dean was in the process of adopting a child with his wife.
“I’ve never had a connection [with a co-star]. With Dean it was different. I remember the moment… literally I was sitting with the director, he said ‘Your co-star is here,’… it was like a million blocks of hearts just fell on me. And I saw him and I was like ‘oh my gosh.’ I’ll never forget that moment seeing him and I just knew. And that was it, ‘there’s the man I want to spend the rest of my life with. He’s gonna father my children, and he’s my soul mate.’… I fell madly in love.

No mention of her husband, no mention of Dean’s wife, just “there’s the man I want to spend the rest of my life with.” It’s a good thing for Tori that Dean reciprocated, because if he didn’t she would have had to fall back on the guy she had already pledged to spend the rest of her life with.
