Well, color me shocked! True Tori is coming back for a second season. Forget about that very public affair of Dean McDermott that was tabloid fodder for months as he and his wife Tori Spelling prepped for their latest reality series. Pretend like the world didn’t watch as they went to therapy about said infidelity. Let’s not even get started on Tori’s subsequent hospitalization for stress. No big deal! Apparently, it’s all about living life on camera no matter what. Why am I so surprised? After all, I blog about people just like them (lovers of attention, every last one!) almost every single day.
Still, after a very raw and awkward first season, I couldn’t believe that Tori and Dean would put their young family back in the spotlight. I guess I should look for themes. This season will totally be “the rebuilding.” Am I right?
To promote her latest book, Tori Spelling promised stories of woe surrounding her self-proclaimed financial ruin. Basically, Tori boohooed about being broke to promote Spelling It Like It Is, and then she expected us to believe she bounced back from her dire financial situation shortly after the book's release.
Candy Spelling appeared on The Talk – and she called out Tori's lies.
When Julie Chen asked about Tori's lack of money, Candy said the "rumors" are not true. "I'd never leave my kids in the lurch. I can't imagine any parent doing that – and I'm always there to support her. I even bought them a house in Malibu," boasted Candy. "I think it was an angle she took for her book."
So the train wreck that is True Tori is going to end without a resolution? Seriously!?!? Well at least according to producers that is exactly what is going to happen.
Executive Producer Robert “Bobby” Sizemore, recently sat down with In Touch and what he said is shocking and completely expected at the same time. Shocking because he admitted that long before the show is set to air it's last episode. If nothing is solved, why watch? To hear them bicker, no thanks!
Expected because he reasons that Tori Spelling has to start filming another series. If this was real life and not acting out a fake scenario for publicity, couldn't the cameras still be there?
Well Tori Spelling, I really wanted to believe you. I wanted to believe that you are the victim in this entire affair scandal. But reports about you faking the entire ordeal in order to get a new reality show seemed to add up. Now you bring the True Tori along with you to the hospital? Not looking real Tori, not looking real.
Tori Spelling was recently hospitalized for at least six days for migraine headaches and an ulcer, supposedly caused from her body being rundown by the stress of her husband's December 2013 affair and subsequent rehab stint. If you have watched True Tori the former Beverly Hills 90210 star does seem rundown in front of the cameras, but taking them with you to the hospital when you "cannot even have light in the bedroom" due to your headaches?
Last year the couple came out as broke and super hard-up for money. After a reality TV project about them moving to a cabin with their 4 kids failed to take off, Dean's mistress, the comically named Emily Goodhand, emerged in the tabloids and shortly after Dean entered rehab for undisclosed (ahem… sex) addictions.
And the reality TV offers came pouring in again! A spurned and furious Tori was reportedly using True Tori to humiliate her husband and was one step away from filing for divorce while Dean groveled for another chance. As you recall, Tori and Dean got together when they were still married to other spouses.
Now, according to the sleuths at Jezebel, Tori and Dean may be faking the scandal to revitalize their stagnant reality careers! A breakdown of the evidence is below.
I'm going to go out on a limb here…if you don't want people to judge your most intimate situations, perhaps you shouldn't film said situations as the story line for a docu-drama in which cameras follow you and your cheating husband into marital counseling for his highly publicized affair(s?). There is no need to go Spelling out all of your issues on reality television.
Here's the short sTori: Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott met on set (the original Cibrian-Rimes love story), left their spouses, and then married each other. While having four kids, they proceeded to live life on reality shows that encompassed the couple in every situation from Bed and Breakfasts to family life. Back in December, Dean strayed with a woman who saw dollar signs and sold her story to a tabloid. Since then, Tori footed the bill for his sex addiction rehab while trying to prove to the world that they were still one big happy family. Now, they have filmed the healing process (or maybe final good-bye?) of their union for Lifetime with a show called True Tori which begins April 22.
I'm no marriage counselor, but I'd imagine the best thing to do in the wake of your husband's very public cheating scandal would be to film a reality show about trying to make your relationship work. Tori Spelling agrees, which is why her latest reality show with husband Dean McDermott focuses on their marital strife.
True Tori premieres April 22nd on Lifetime, and the teaser is extremely dramatic…to put it mildly. Call me old-fashioned, but I prefer my Dean and Tori in heavily-scripted situations involving guncles and bed and breakfast endeavors. This is just too raw…at least that's what I gathered from the thirty second clip!
I'm not sure whether to feel sorry for Tori Spelling or roll my eyes at her idiocy. Where I come from there's an expression that goes, "You lose him how you catch him." And that's exactly what seems to be happening in her marriage to Dean McDermott, living sperm donor who's been caught cheating.
See Dean and Tori, are now professional reality TV stars who flit from various shows hoping something sticks, and they're also broke according to Tori's latest pun-ny book. But that didn't stop Dean from going to the most expensive rehab he could find. Oh yeah, in case you haven't heard Dean is seeking treatment for sex addiction or something.
Dean entered LA’s Grand View House rehab mid-January and Tori is so desperate to get him to stop cheating so she can write another book about titled Adul-TORI: How I Saved My Marriage* that she's paying $60,000 – $70,000 per month! Or should I say Candy Spelling is paying for it?
