Tori Spelling, timeless wonder at 50, is about as thrilled with estranged hubby Dean McDermott’s recent overshare session as a cat in a bathtub, according to the Entertainment Tonight grapevine. The actress is apparently feeling a bit “ouchie” about Dean’s chit-chat, where he spilled the tea on their rollercoaster love story, complete with tales of his booze-infused temper tantrums and a thrilling suicide attempt involving sleeping pills. It’s a plot twist even Shakespeare wouldn’t have seen coming.
Our sources say Tori’s got her feathers ruffled because, sure, Dean may have thrown in a compliment or two, but mama bear is in full-on protective mode over their five offspring. Especially Stella, who’s old enough to Google her parents and discover more drama than a Shakespearean tragedy.
Tori and Dean, the dynamic duo who brought us Liam, 16, Stella, 15, Hattie, 12, Finn, 11, and Beau, 6, are also in the process of dealing with the fallout from their once-upon-a-time love story. Dean’s got a side character named Jack from his past relationship with Mary Jo Eustace, because why not add a twist to this reality soap opera?
Our insider spilled the tea faster than a clumsy waiter, revealing that Tori’s trying to keep the ship from sinking, all while juggling the chaos of Dean’s verbal firework show. It’s like a circus, but with fewer clowns and more emotional acrobatics.
In a shocking revelation, Dean confessed to having a more extended vacation from the family than a sabbatical in the Bermuda Triangle. “I took something beautiful and turned it into a year-round demolition derby,” he admitted to the Daily Mail. And let’s not forget his tryst with binge drinking – apparently, alcohol made him feel like a rockstar until he realized he was the only one in the audience.
“Alcohol was my BFF until it wasn’t,” Dean spilled to the outlet. “It escalated to me solo partying with a fifth of tequila every night, like I was auditioning for a tequila commercial, and popping a handful of narcos while my picture-perfect family slept soundly nearby. And that, my friends, is the recipe for a relationship nosedive.”
In the midst of Dean’s misadventures, he spent 40 days in a posh California rehab facility, while Tori and the kiddos went on a real estate adventure, moving from motel to RV to a mansion with a rent higher than my self-esteem. All this drama unfolded since the summertime split announcement, marking the end of their 17-year marriage.
Stay tuned for the next episode of “As Tori’s World Turns.” Will Dean find his way back from sober living, or is he destined to be the circus act we all can’t look away from? Only time, and the tabloids, will tell.
