Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott have a lot more than just relationship problems. The troubled reality stars have been sharing their quest to keep their marriage afloat since April on True Tori. The Lifetime series is seriously like watching a train wreck, it is so gruesome to look at, yet you just can’t look away.
Last night while crying over her money woes, Tori claims that the family lives paycheck to paycheck, making supporting her four kids and husband difficult.
If you recall — Tori grew up SUPER WEALTHY — when her dad Aaron Spelling died he left behind $600 million, but sources claim the reason Tori only received $800,000 was because of her excessive spending. Spending habits that she still seems to maintain, even though she is not on Daddy’s payroll anymore.
A stressed Tori Spelling broke down in tears on True Tori last night. Well, err, she covered her face and whined obnoxiously when she felt pressured to sell a warehouse full of her stuff to make money. And it is out with the old storyline, cheating husband, and in with the new storyline, financial crisis.
Tori is a hoarder, but she doesn’t want to sell anything <boohoohoo> because her dad would not have wanted her <boohoohoo> to live modestly.
When Dean McDermott asked why she’s so against selling the stuff, Tori said, “It’s a life I built. It’s a life I worked really hard for. Everyone mocked me… they thought my dad gave me everything. They gave me nothing. I worked so hard for all of that. It’s MY stuff. At 41 years old, I don’t want to think I have to sell off everything to start over. My dad would not have wanted this.”
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.
