Dean McDermott: Tori Spelling and I leave the bathroom door open so we’re soulmates

If you haven’t noticed, we’ve been ignoring Dean McDermott and Tori Spelling. That’s the last phase of being fed up with a celebrity, which we talked about in an early episode of our podcast (we’re back next Monday, we just took a couple of weeks off). Once the celebrity is just picking feuds or they have a podcast or YouTube channel where they give a lot of information, we may end up ignoring them. Thus the lack of coverage of Tori and Dean, who are now reunited in their quest for coverage. Dean has a podcast and he apparently revealed that he and Tori leave the bathroom door open when they do their business. Please don’t make me listen to it, I’m just relying on US Weekly’s writeup.

“The door’s open, yeah,” the 52-year-old actor confessed during a candid conversation about using the toilet in front of significant others with cohosts Adam Hunter and Nicky Paris and guest Krista Allen on the Monday, July 8, episode of the “Daddy Issues” podcast Opens a New Window. . “I actually think it is a sign of, maybe not love, but that you’re soulmates.”

McDermott added that he hadn’t been as comfortable in past relationships.

“There are some people that would try to do that in front of me and I’m like, ’That’s disgusting,’” the former Chopped Canada host explained. “And I wouldn’t do it in front of them.”

[From US Magazine]

There was a really bad-looking body switch comedy with Leslie Mann, Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman called The Change Up, which came out in 2011. I only saw the first few minutes, where Leslie’s character was doing her business disgustingly with the door open. I’ve never done this in front of a partner and unless it was an emergency situation I don’t think I ever will. There are some things you just should not share. Sometimes I leave the door almost closed but not locked because the handle comes off (I live in an old house) but it’s not the same and everyone is afforded their privacy. Also, why do men take so long in there? Every guy I’ve ever lived with has taken forever while I’m in and out. My friends say the same: they’re pretty fast and their husbands and sons are in there a long time. Anyway I’m not surprised Tori and Dean do this in front of each other and consider it romantic. I am surprised they’re still together, but they’re united in their love of grifting and spending. Speaking of that, they missed a July 1st hearing over one of the many unpaid debts for which they’re being sued. As Allison at Dlisted reports, Dean was in the hospital around that time with pneumonia. Tori could have showed up for the hearing, but she never shows up for those things and has skated for that so far.

    I would be ok with you going back to ignoring these two. 😀

  2. Ye says:

    My soulmate would respect my closed door.

    Lets have a wee bit of mystery, y’know?

  3. leskat says:

    Sorry, but that’s gross. If you’re doing number 2, keep it to yourself. There’s no reason to share that with literally anyone be it lover, friend, or kid. My husband and I do pee in front of each other, but more often that not, that’s also private. You can keep secrets in a relationship and bowel movements should be one of them.

  4. Lori says:

    Cell mates maybe.

  5. Snowslow says:

    I have a friend who asked his wife (also a friend) to do the business in front of him… They’re divorced now…
    I dunno. To each their own if it’s not a weird kink (and if it is and both agree than not a problem). I find it weirder, with all due respect, to write an article about this and wouldn’t have commented had I not remembered my friend’s strange conundrum.

    • Kebbie says:

      Asked her to? Lol I really figured in most situations the other person would just be barely tolerating it not outright requesting.

      • Snowslow says:

        Yup! And it was asked in such a weird creepy way that my friend (who is rather prude) told me! It’s obviously a kink that he could not entirely admit to, poor thing.

  6. Arizona says:

    The only couple I knew that claimed they were so close because they kept the bathroom door open at all times went through a truly hellish divorce after bouts of cheating and issues with money.

    I’m not saying there’s a direct correlation, but seems suspicious haha. Either way, my husband doesn’t need to see my poop face, and I don’t need to see his.

    Also, yes, my husband and my stepsons take FOREVER, and my stepdaughter and I are in and out. I think men are conditioned to go to the bathroom as soon as they get any sensation of having to go because they can’t hold their pee very well, but women are able to hold their pee a lot longer. If it’s taking you twenty minutes to poop, you weren’t quite ready yet!

  7. Seraphina says:

    I agree that some things are better left behind closed doors and bathroom stuff is one of them. I need my space and the washroom is one space that is closed doors. Literally and figuratively. And soulmates isn’t bathroom-mates or washroom-mates. 🤦🏻‍♀️

  8. Lady Baden-Baden says:

    My husband’s seen me sh*t myself at the business end of giving birth to twins, so he wouldn’t blink at me leaving the door open. However, I MUCH prefer a bit of privacy and I have zero desire to see him curling one out.

    Oh – and as the only female in a household of boys, I can tell you exactly what they’re doing in there. Reading or wanking (more the former than the latter, thank god)

    • Arizona says:

      It’s sometimes wanking, but I don’t think it always is! My stepson’s only 10 and he’s alllllways taken forever in the bathroom. And he doesn’t bring in anything to read, either. He just has a tendency to think that the very instant he feels like he could pee or poop, he has to rush to the bathroom.

  9. TheHeat says:

    We leave the door open, most of the time…but it’s because of our dogs. They whine and bark at the bathroom door to come in with us.
    Hubby and I don’t go in and watch each other or anything…that’s creepy. But if I need something in there, or he does, it’s not a big deal.

  10. Surly Gale says:

    Toilet talk belongs in one room only…the room where the toilet is. No one needs to know TMI

  11. Biting Panda says:

    She makes him leave the door open because she can’t trust him in any capacity. Bathroom time is unsupervised texting time. Is one theory.

  12. S says:

    This is a perfectly fine and valid stance, which I endorse wholeheartedly, but once you have kids, forget about it. Every parent knowns you can not hear a peep out of your children for an hour, but the instant you go into the bathroom they urgently need you. We talk about privacy, we talk about respecting said space and closed doors until we’re blue in the face, and I’ve still had my son burst in on me IN THE SHOWER to share with me the URGENT news that a Disney Channel star in the series he is watching was (drumroll please)…Also in another Disney Channel show he has watched.

    I’ve had the “unless one of you is bleeding or something is on fire” speech more times than I can count, and they still open the door to ask me if, for example, “Paul Bunyan was real or fake.”

    The number of times I’ve gone to the bathroom in privacy since the birth of my oldest can likely be counted on one hand. It’s not something I’m proud of, enthusiastic about, or endorsing it just … is. It’s gotten to the point where even the dogs get offended if they’re not with me when I’m in there, and will push open the door if it’s not firmly latched. (We also have those lever door handles, which our large dogs can and do open themselves by jumping on them.)

    In short: it’s not about intimacy (gross), it’s about giving up.

    • joanne says:

      I’m curious why you don’t lock the door. I’m a firm believer in privacy.

      • S says:

        Because when you have small children they MIGHT need you at any time, and you shouldn’t really be completely inaccessible to them. When my oldest was an infant (>10 weeks) I once left him him the floor on a fluffy blanket to quickly use the restroom. I came back about 3 minutes later to find he’d wiggled his way to getting his head stuck under the sofa. (It’s how we learned he wasn’t as immobile as we thought and was able to inch worm around.) So, from then, if it was just he and I in the house, he joined me in the bathroom, so I could have eyes on him.

        To each their own, but it just … Doesn’t bother me anymore? Like, I usually have both dogs, maybe one of the cats and a kid popping their head in and it’s become the norm. (We often joke about asking if anyone else needs to be there.) It’s not like they do that to strangers. It’s just our family, and we’re not that formal about stuff. I’m still like, ‘Privacy!’ and they giggle and leave, but it’s not a battle I feel like fighting all that hard.

        Having kids in general has made me much less hung up about preserving my own personal dignity, as there is little about becoming a mother that is pure or private when it comes to your body. Even aside from just the muchness of birth and its after effects, you get puked on, peed on, pooped on, serve as a feeding station and too much else to mention. You’ll drive yourself mad if you’re too hung up on all the grossness that comes with parenting.

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        I am fully on board with every point you’ve made about kids having an impact on privacy and dignity. The Mr. and I became fully open door after twins. With three kids, odds for privacy plummeted. Ablution time/ toilet time are some of our most spirited and playful conversation times.

      • TheHeat says:

        @S & @NotSoSocialButterly
        I agree. For us, it started with the kids. And now that one is on his own, and the other is nearly 16, the door is open because of our dogs. The dogs are as demanding as toddlers when it comes to a closed bathroom door. LOL!
        But, at this point, after 23 years, my husband and I don’t look at bathroom privacy as an issue at all.

        I do not, however, believe that is what makes us soulmates. LMAO

    • Ange says:

      I get it when kids are super little but the second we kids grew up the tiniest bit my parents shut and locked the door and we were kept out. I’m not really sure about this modern trend of just letting the whole family hang out in there forever, kids need to learn sometimes the door is closed and they’ll survive without attention for five minutes.

  13. Nicegirl says:

    Yay I was wondering about the podcast and worried 😟 it was a no go! Love hearing the voices of my gossip gals! 💅🏽✌️💕🖖🏽

  14. Nicegirl says:

    These 2= BARFTASTIC 🤮

  15. CheckThatPrivilege says:

    I guess he must not have anything more interesting to say if that’s what he’s choosing to share.

    I don’t care in the least about their bathroom habits. I do care, however, whether they’re decent human beings and parents, and what behaviors they’ve modeled to their kids
    Putting it mildly, their choices have been questionable at times. I truly hope they don’t get pregnant again and bring another kid into the world.

  16. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    Maybe Dean has a story to share about that time him and Tori actually paid a bill…..

  17. jennifer says:

    this is a visual that i did not need this morning…

  18. Rina says:

    Why (oh why!) do Tori and Dean feel the need to share this info with the public? Do they think that it will make them more relatable? Shilling for a dime. Yuk!

  19. Dani says:

    My husband has stared in to my wide open vagina while pushing out our two kids. I doubt (seriously doubt) that he would even register me on the toilet at this point.

    • S says:

      Pretty much the gist of what I said above, phrased far more economically.

      As for these two grasping grifters (Tori and Dean) … They have 5 (count ‘em!) kids. If that hasn’t made them “intimate” I don’t think leaving the door open when they go to the bathroom is gonna put that over the top.

  20. TQB says:

    OK, for whatever reason I keep hearing these comments about men taking forever to poo and my only response is, me too? I am absolutely not able to just get in and get out. It’s going to be at least 5-8 minutes. Am I weird? I’m not hiding in there, I’m sincerely still… working things out? God, it would be SO HELPFUL in the mornings if I could get it done faster.

  21. Harryg says:


  22. holly hobby says:

    Well the Deaner also announced on same podcast that his oldest son (the one he does not pay support for) is gay. I’m not sure if the son is ok with that but that’s what US Weekly reported.

  23. Jaded says:

    They are truly disgusting and will stop at nothing in their need to grift.

    That being said, I have a cat who will push his way into the bathroom and if the door is locked he will throw himself bodily at it and cry piteously until I come out. Yes, he’s a momma’s boy and so I leave the door open a titch so he doesn’t go through separation anxiety.

  24. TeresaM says:

    Yes, men are present at childbirth and see things up, close and personal so to speak, but it does not mean I am going to let the bathroom door open now. No way!
    I know I am gonna be yelled at, but I believe that we don’t need to share literally everything with our partner.
    Giving birth with our partner present is one thing, taking a dump is another.

    • Lindy says:

      Yeah, I’m with you here. My husband has been there during birth and seen it all, but we both still do our toileting with the bathroom door closed. It’s hard enough to preserve mystery and desire when you’re in the trenches with your partner and kids.

  25. Sila says:

    The only time my husband saw my buisness is when I was pushing our 4th 9.2 lb baby out. I was so embarrassed and couldn’t look at him after, but I could not help it. So, I am good doing my buisness privately.

    • AMAyson1977 says:

      I’m pretty sure I pooped on the table with my second, but my husband chose to act like nothing happened and I followed his lead. 😂 I wholeheartedly agree that a little privacy is a good thing, and doors/locks exist for s reason. I may still get routinely interrupted in the shower by children, but I insist on doing my business in peace. It’s the bare minimum of self-indulgence that I will not compromise.

  26. JanetFerber says:

    Squalid people. Worthless people. With or without the bathroom door open.

  27. pupax says:

    A little privacy is a good thing. Smelling each other’s poo does not equal love, you nutter.
