Tori Spelling, 41, and Dean McDermott, 47, have been battling their marriage on national TV for years, but it seems that the spotlight is taking a toll on Dean. He confirms that he’s calling it quits, after two seasons of True Tori.
Dean McDermott Announces He’s Leaving ‘True Tori’
Contrary to belief, letting cameras into your therapy session isn’t always the answer.
On Nov. 5, Dean sat down with Access Hollywood Live to announce that he’s had enough — he’s leaving True Tori after the current season wraps.
“I’m not going to continue with the show,” he admitted. “We have five more shows left…I can’t do this anymore. I can’t keep opening a vein, opening my soul and sharing my feelings and thoughts and demons with the world.”
Like Dean said, there are five filmed episodes left to air of the second season of Lifetime’s revealing reality docu-series, and if the first round of episodes have been any indication, things are not looking up for the troubled couple.
On the most recent Nov. 4 episode, Tori and Dean engaged in a blowout fight over a baked potato, leaving many viewers wondering when is enough, enough, for the parents of four? In the season premiere, Tori proclaimed that she was possibly pregnant, that revealed that she was not with child and proceeded to slam Dean, telling him that she doesn’t want any more babies with him. Then, she went back to wanting more children. In the midst, Tori finally saw Dean’s mistress and reunited with her ex-husband, whom she cheated on with Dean.
As for Dean, he can’t even bare to watch his own show.
“I don’t watch it,” he revealed in the interview. “I can’t. It’s really difficult…I can’t do it any more, for my soul.”
While Deam is apparently leaving reality TV, he doesn’t want to totally leave the limelight. “I see myself on a scripted show,” he said. “I’m getting back to my roots, I’m getting back to acting…I went out an auditioned for a [part] on a CSI and got it.”
Dean’s episode of CSI airs on Dec. 14.
Dean McDermott Still Believes In His Marriage To Tori Spelling
Despite the show backfiring on his sanity, Dean does admit that something positive has come out of True Tori. “The show has been great. I’ve learned a lot of things about myself, my relationship. It’s not all doom and gloom. There’s a lot of good in the show.”
He also still wants to make his marriage work, even if the cameras stop rolling.
I believe so,” Dean said when asked if his marriage will survive. “I hold out a lot of hope. If you don’t have hope what do you have? I love this woman, regardless of what I’ve done. I love her and want to be with her. I want to grow old with her…at this moment, she feels the exact same way.”
