Tori Spelling’s husband Dean McDermott re-proposes in Paris: PR or sweet?

Dean McDermott and Tori Spelling will celebrate their ten year wedding anniversary in a couple of weeks. When they first got together on the set of a Lifetime Movie they were married to other people. The fact that they had their own issues with infidelity, which they capitalized on and aired on their reality show, seemed somewhat inevitable. So now they’re having money problems due to their oversized lifestyle and Tori’s compulsive spending and hoarding. They recently “downgraded” to a $7,500 a month rental home with a pool and gym. Despite the fact that Tori’s insanely wealthy mom pays their bills they still need to hustle to make ends meet. That’s why I’m side-eyeing Dean’s re-proposal by the Eiffel tower, which was conveniently captured at close range by a photographer. You can see the photos on E! and here’s E!’s report:

Earlier this week, McDermott, 49, got down on one knee and presented Spelling, 42, with another engagement ring in front of their children—Liam, 9, Stella, 7, Hattie, 4, and Finn, 3—in Paris on the terrace of Cafe de L’Homme, near the Eiffel Tower, during a family vacation. The happy couple then shared a sweet kiss.

“Dean planned it with the owners of Cafe de L’homme overlooking the Eiffel Tower and all of Paris to have the terrace all reserved and private for us and told me we were going to get coffee and hot chocolates for the kids and then surprised me when he got down on one knee and presented me with an antique engagement ring,” Spelling said. “The four kids and I were so surprised and so happy. It’s been a rough few years and this was a perfect family moment for unity and love!”

Spelling and McDermott’s relationship has seen much drama. They began their romance while they were married to other people and wed in May 2006. In 2013, McDermott had an affair with a Canadian woman. In 2014, Spelling’s reality show True Tori documented the couple’s attempts to keep their marriage afloat amid personal turmoil, including McDermott’s past infidelity.

“No date for the wedding is set yet,” she joked. “But our 10-year anniversary will take place in May.”

These two are angling for another reality show after True Tori ended in 2014. I can’t blame them, it’s all they know and they seem to be wanting for work now. Dean hosted Chopped Canada until last year and now he’s doing TV guest spots. Tori is working as a voice actress on the cartoon Jake and The Neverland Pirates. If only she would change her career to “eBay seller” I think she could do fine. Maybe they’ll be able to get a sponsored second honeymoon out of this though.

Here are photos of Tori, Dean and their kids out in Paris. The French paparazzi are probably like “who is this person who called us?” She’s also shown in Copenhagen last week.

    no not really

    and they can’t pay their bills in california, let alone france

  2. cleveland girl says:

    My goodness. What is going on with her?? She looks very haggard all of the sudden.

    • denisemich says:

      No money for plastic procedures

    • HollyG says:

      She’s gained weight in her face. Same thing happened to me when I hit 40 and gained weight too.

      IIRC she’s always viciously starved herself to stay thin, but as a 42 year old mother of 4, she looks pretty darn good.

      This is obviously a PR thing–she does everything except give the address of the cafe where the magic happened–and it sounds like she’s shopping for a wedding reality show.

      • herladyship says:

        I agree. She’s gained a little weight. My first thought too.

      • Kyle says:

        Is it weight or fear-bloating? She looks like a frightened fish out of water. Why doesn’t she just get a smaller profile job? I don’t think I’d even recognize her behind a McDonald’s countertop with her uniform and visor on. Beats whooring yourself for reality tv anyday I’d think.

      • Amanda G says:

        I agree, weight gain… and she looks much better this way vs. being skin and bones. She was scary thin for a long time…

  3. LadyJane says:

    Her face is falling off her face.

    • Esmom says:

      Lol. Something’s wonky for sure.

    • Meh says:

      I’ve heard if you Botox for long enough the muscles in your face lose their strength and definition. Looks like she’s overdue for her appointment to me.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      I just realized what is odd about her face… the size/shape from eyes up does not match the size/shape from eyes down. It has aways perplexed me, but now it is clear.

  4. NewWester says:

    The side eye that guy is giving Tori in that one photo. So I guess Tori got a settlement from that restaurant where she “fell” on a grill. How else could she afford a trip to Europe?

  5. Patricia says:

    Yeah she’s not looking too well at all. She looks ill and unhappy as can be. I feel bad for the kids involved in this messy marriage.

  6. Neners says:

    A mess.

  7. lucy2 says:

    I know when I’m completely broke, the first thing I do is buy a diamond ring and go on vacation in Europe.

    • Dena says:

      You are too practical minded😄. You have to go out with a bang. She’ll have warm memories of Paris and a big fat diamond to look at as she and her kids have dinner at the local charity or food pantry. She’ll have reminders that life wasn’t always like this. Lol.

  8. Snowpea says:

    Oh my gosh I actually have a big soft spot for this bird but seriously wtf is up with her face?

    She never had much to start with but now she looks positively horrid. Facelift still settling?

    Once again , I’m so grateful to not be famous. They’re all so f*cjed up!

  9. Tredd says:

    I love when I read blogs here and someone has already said exactly what I was thinking *cracking up* YIKES, Tori! JESUS! She must look in the mirror and promptly report to
    under*the*bed. This broad is WAY to arrogant and insecure to (see these pics and) let THAT go on.

  10. lisa2 says:

    I don’t know.. maybe they are trying to make it work. I saw a part of an interview they did and they each claimed they are not broke.. but then people with money are a different kind of broke than the ones with regular jobs.

  11. Dolkite says:

    This makes me feel old. “90210” was big when I was in high school but Tori looks like rough trade now. I’m kind of scared to Google Shannen Doherty.

  12. Lisa says:

    Did they Ombre their child’s hair or is that natural growth for a child’s hair? (I don’t know I’ve never had or seen a child’s hair during the process of going darker)

    • Wiffie says:

      That straight line looks like a dye job imo. My daughter is dirty blonde that gets really blonde in the summer, and it’s a way more gradual line than that, and looks like strong highlights all over.

    • Esmom says:

      Ha, I was wondering the same thing. It doesn’t look natural at all.

  13. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Oh, bite me, you fake thirsty idiots. Why don’t you try paying your bills as a sign of your new commitment? This is so stupid.

  14. Crackkin says:

    I would guess they are in Europe to see if anyone over there is willing to buy what they are hustling. The North American reality watching folks have bored of their antics and so Like Lindsay, Paris and Tara Reid before them it’s time to hit the European market. Tori and the Deaner are just
    doing it as a family. France is a bit of an odd choice. Usually it’s the Brits who really seem to have a taste for thirsty antics of celebrity has-beens clutching for a paycheck.

    • Starkiller says:

      I very much doubt anyone in Europe even knows who they are. Reality-trash tv of this ilk is a pretty uniquely American thing (okay, British too, but they have their own).

  15. BrittKit says:

    Can you imagine being on the flight to Europe with the two of them and their 4 kids? I don’t think they could afford to fly privately.

  16. Suzanne says:

    My husband would work ten menial jobs before letting my mom support us. Dean really is a pathetic excuse for a man.

    These two disgust me…I hope their poor children are able to have decent lives after being raised by these idiots.

    • Starkiller says:

      I agree with the sentiment that dean is a speed bump, but “the man should support the woman” is a very outdated view. So Dean should go out and get a job while Tori sits on her duff and buys diamonds and European vacations? How is that any different?

      • Suzanne says:

        Considering that Tori’s family money has basically kept them afloat this long, I don’t think it would hurt him to hoof it a bit. Marriage is a partnership- he is a leach. It’s not a gender issue. 🙄

  17. HK9 says:

    I don’t know….I know they’re doing this to get another TV show for ‘work’ but, it seems to me, every time these reality people “renew their vows” they are actually a stone’s throw from divorce.

  18. islandwalker says:

    No thing romantic about it. Who’s paying for this trip? Her mother pays her essentials. They need to be home looking for 9-5 work to take care of their darned children. Can’t stand these freeloaders.

  19. OTHER RENEE says:

    They could probably save money if they didn’t have a photographer on staff 24/7 following them everywhere then photoshopping and posting the (we’re-not-noticing-you-taking-our-pics) pics.

  20. KBeth says:

    These two are pathetic.

  21. benchwarmer says:

    I LOVE Tori! I find her relatable despite having nothing in common with her lol. I root for her. I would love to see another show with her in it, I don’t get why any of them get canceled. I find her fascinating and lovable.

    • Pandy says:

      Me too! We are definitely in the minority, but I root for her as well. I think she’s gained some weight because she’s happy finally. She looks great and the kids look happy and that’s good enough. I would watch her back on TV again. Even with Dean.

    • Mrs. Odie says:

      Ever notice how planted comments always throw in an “LOL” for “authenticity.”

  22. Emilee says:

    He was pretty good in that Slasher tv show that was just on.

  23. Sara Toole says:

    Tori grew up in exaggerated, extravagant luxury and in all fairness, she should have inherited money from her father’s vast estate . . . but for whatever reason, her mom got ALL of the money. Her mom must be some kind of sadist to sit at home playing with her extravagant doll collection while Tori does all of her plastic surgery and embarrassing reality TV show stuff . . . she should just subsidize Tori, for god’s sake: it’s her grandchildren!! She could require Tori and Dean to do some charity work, like the Queen does for Kate and Will. But this is just cheap and classless on Candy’s part: I feel sorry for Tori. She seems very lost.

    • Mrs. Odie says:

      Her mom got all of the money because her husband died and when a person dies, they leave their money to their surviving spouse. When the mom dies, she leaves it to the kids. Also, Tori didn’t deserve a penny of that money. She has a warehouse full of stuff that she hordes. She could sell all of her horde and live off of that money for years. But she is too mentally ill to do it.

      Also, Candi was married to Aaron for decades, bore his children and kept a home up to the standards of a major Hollywood mogul. Tori barely had a relationship with Aaron until he was dying and she needed to get that cash, dollar dollar bill, y’all. Dean thought that marrying Tori would mean living in unimagined luxury for life and Aaron made sure that golddigging, pig-eyed sleezeball would never see a dime of it.

      Candi supports her grandchildren. She just doesn’t pay Tori’s debt or pay for luxuries. She pays for their rent, food, presents for the kids, private school, and probably the kids’ healthcare too. She made it clear she doesn’t do debt for past careless frivolity. Candi is being BEYOND fair. I firmly believe that if Tori ditched Dean for good, after the divorce was settled and Dean was getting nothing and a judge had decided on whatever paltry alimony he was entitled to, along with visitation with the children, Candi would happily give Tori all the money Tori could spend. But Aaron and Candi disapproved of Dean and never wanted him to have Aaron’s money.
