Tori Spelling’s daughter read about her dad’s affair: ‘It really upset her’

Tori Spelling was a guest on the Women on Top podcast, which I tried to listen to but found quite annoying. The hosts, Roxy Manning and Tammin Sursok, kissed Tori’s ass when they introduced her and talked about what a great mom and person she is. There are certain things I will not do for this job, so I’m relying on People’s reporting. Tori said on the podcast that her biggest fear was Dean cheating on her. When he inevitably did, and they conveniently made it into an entire storyline for their reality show, Tori didn’t think about her children reading about it someday. She said that her daughter (I’m assuming it was Stella, 12) did and that it upset her.

During a recent appearance on the Women on Top podcast… Spelling explained that while she’s proud she didn’t hide her marital issues from the cameras, her young children have been given access to that information due to it being posted online.

“My kids have not seen clips, but they’ve seen something out there online and my daughter saw something,” Spelling said. “It really upset her.”

Spelling and McDermott share five kids: daughters Stella, 12, Hattie, 8, and sons Liam, 13, Finn, 7, and Beau, 3.

While Spelling said she is “so proud” that her story “lives online” and admitted “that’s not something you think about in that moment,” navigating their relationship after the scandal was difficult.

“My biggest fear in our relationship was I was like, he’s going to cheat on me, he’s going to cheat on me, he’s going to cheat on me,” she said. “So when it happened, I was like, ‘See, I always thought from day one he was going to cheat on me,’ and it wasn’t about him, that was about me. I was like, ‘Okay, I know I’m not good enough,’ that’s how I felt about myself and one day he’s going to realize that and he’s gonna find someone else.”

Spelling said that before the affair took place, she used to tell her husband: “I’m so scared you are going to cheat on me.”

“He [would be] like, ‘Why are you? I’ve never given you a reason.’ Then when it happened, I was like, ‘Oh my God, see, you cheated on me,’ so it was a hard thing to navigate,” said Spelling.

Choosing to forgive, Spelling said she and McDermott have been able to move forward and she’s happy she decided to stay in her marriage.

“I don’t bring it up all the time, and when I do bring it up he listens and he understands,” Spelling shared. “We did have a rebirth after that happened.”

“This happened and rocked our foundation and we have no choice — we either start over or move on. … It was madness. Everybody out there was like, ‘F— him … and I was like, ‘I love this man and I have children with this man and everyone makes mistakes.’ ”

Spelling asserted that she didn’t stay because she had to, but rather because she wanted to.

[From People]

The reason all this information about Tori’s husband cheating on her is online is because Tori and Dean were doing a reality show at the time. Bedhead was working with us back when that story broke and I remember her coverage on it. I’m not even sure that story was true, the alleged mistress was named “Emily Goodhand” and she was from Canada. It all sounded so fake. I’m sure Dean cheated on Tori because he cheated on his then-wife with Tori when he met her (and Tori was cheating on her then-husband with Dean too), but I think they made up fake details to milk it for headlines.

Did Tori’s daughter see anything about all the lawsuits against her after she failed to pay multiple creditors? Did she read about the fact that her parents had their assets seized by the IRS and the court? That’s really what she should be ashamed about. Also, if Tori really cared about her daughter’s feelings she wouldn’t be telling this story to the public. That’s like a double whammy to a teen.

    I can’t with that pathetic caption. She is so vapid.

  2. Züri says:

    I saw this story on another site this weekend and continue to have the same thought, “those poor kids.” Tori and Dean are vicious grifters who refuse to work and will do anything for a paycheck or attention. Her children often don’t look happy in the photos and I hope they have some iota of sanity in their lives, because it’s not coming from their parents.

    On a peripheral note, Tori’s brother seems to have done well for himself as a life coach in Oregon.

    • Carobell says:

      Yup, those poor children don’t have choice and I feel incredible sympathy for their futures.

      Even if they are the most loving parents on the planet, having your whole life and every personal thing splashed out into public isn’t healthy.

      And I don’t think they are the greatest parents.

      • Züri says:

        Couldn’t agree more with you on these points @carobell. I can’t imagine any scenario in which they’re great– or even good– parents.

  3. Mia4s says:

    Oh honey, if he’s been faithful to you since it’s only because even would-be Hollywood mistresses have SOME standards. Opportunity may have stopped knocking.

    She’s going to try to push those kids into the industry isn’t she? That…would be very unkind. 😬

    • paddingtonjr says:

      She seems to be counting on those kids taking care of her, so I wouldn’t be surprised if she pushes them in the industry. If she does, I hope they have someone else looking after their earnings or T&D will just use the money to fund the lifestyle they think they should have.

  4. Brittney B says:

    It’s like he created these kids himself without any DNA from her. I’ve never seen kids who look SO much like their dad.

  5. AmyB says:

    I just can’t with Tori – or her family AT ALL. Like was mentioned in the article, is she f**king embarrassed about her assets being frozen by the IRS and multiple courts b/c they refuse to pay huge amounts of debts to the IRS/and credit cards??? Despite going on various vacations, proudly displaying this bullshit online on their social media accounts? That is behavior to be much more embarrassed about!! If Tori was so traumatized (LOL) by this affair and didn’t want her kids subjected to it, she shouldn’t have made it a central storyline on her reality tv show.

    Bitch Please LMAO!!

  6. Erin says:

    absolutely no shame. she’s teaching her kids some really great lessons…

  7. Flamingo says:

    I’m not sure what the best way to handle this would be. Is it a do as I say, not as I do situation where she tells her daughter to expect more from men than she does herself? My teenage stepdaughters come to me every now and then and ask for guy advice. I don’t know how you’d be able to offer it with a straight face if you allowed men to treat you horribly.

    • pottymouth pup says:

      in all fairness, it’s not a matter of men treating her poorly, it’s a matter of her also treating her first husband poorly when she cheated on him with Dean. Weird the kid only heard about and was upset that daddy cheated on mommy, yet not confused by daddy cheated on his first wife with mommy who was also cheating on her husband. At 12 years old, I would have found that bit and everything else pertaining to how they got together more disturbing than plain old daddy cheated on mommy

  8. grabbyhands says:

    Imagine how much more hurt and confused she’ll be when she is old enough to realize how much you exploited her privacy for attention and money for yourself?

  9. Jane Doe says:

    These poor kids don’t have a chance. They aren’t being exposed to proper boundaries or basic ideas about right and wrong. Their awful parents are still somehow getting attention, and I thought the public would be deeply bored with them by now.

  10. julia says:

    It wouldn’t surprise me if she gave her daughter that information herself, by leaving a website open, an old magazine around the house as a way to make Dean look bad to her kids if they were in an argument. She seems like the type.

    • paddingtonjr says:

      Well, they do need an idea for yet another reality show. Now they can be filmed while going to family therapy and continuing to exploit their children.

  11. ChillyWilly says:

    Poor Stella. Being a 12 year old girl is so unbelievably hard. Imagine having to go through the hell that is puberty AND have to deal with her parents’ embarrassing f#ckery!

    • lucy2 says:

      I know, I feel for those kids. I wish the very best for them. I hope they all rebel against their parents by working hard and being self sufficient and grounded in reality.

  12. Golly Gee says:

    “I was like, ‘Okay, I know I’m not good enough,’ that’s how I felt about myself and one day he’s going to realize that and he’s gonna find someone else.”

    You’re perfect for each other. Not a compliment.

  13. Golly Gee says:

    ” One day we’ll get back to Fiji where we became husband and wife…”
    Of course this is dependent on them scamming a credit card from a bank they haven’t burned yet.

  14. Holly hobby says:

    Wait until she reads about how they got together and their original marriages!

  15. Jules says:

    Yeah, duh, keep your life off of social media and stop seeking attention. Of course your kids are going to see it at some point.

  16. Sarah says:

    Who is paying this woman to show up for stuff??

    I feel so bad for the children, this is going to be a slow motion horror show for the next few years as they gradually learn more and more of what their parents have done and shared online.

  17. Mel says:

    If you’re convinced your spouse is going to cheat on you and you constantly tell them that, don’t be surprised when they live down to your expectations. Might as well do the crime if they’re already getting the punishment.

  18. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    I don’t even believe there ever was an affair. I think it was a ploy for their reality show.
