Dean McDermott Is Changing His Story, Now Says He Cheated On Tori Because Of Cocaine

Dean McDermott and Tori Spelling leaving Katsuya Restaurant July 2013The more I hear the rumors that Dean McDermott and Tori Spelling invented all this cheating drama to snag themselves a reality show, the more I believe it. Every piece of information they put out there seems strategically designed to lure in viewers, and this newest revelation — that Dean has a pretty aggressive cocaine addiction — is no exception.

As you may recall, Dean had previously blamed his cheating ways on the lack of intimacy with Tori, complaining because the two of them only had sex every two weeks or so. Which might sound low to you, but bear in mind that these two have been married for eight years and have four kids under eight. And also, judging by the clip where that information came out, they’d communicated exactly zero percent up to that point about their needs and wants as far as frequency. Tori seemed perfectly happy with that number, but Dean seemed to think it was crazy low, suggesting they hadn’t communicated about it before, which was the real problem.

But anyway, there’s no point in trying to parse out that situation, because they’re already on to their next excuse — Dean’s cocaine addiction. In a clip from the newest episode of True Toriairing tonight at 10:00pm on Lifetime, Dean is now blaming his infidelity on his addiction, and casually dismissing their sex life as any kind of factor.

“I was not dealing with things that happened to me in the past. It’s not like I was looking for sex or was horny- our relationship and sex life is solid.”

He says he hooked up with Canadian Emily Goodhand because he didn’t think he’d get caught, first of all, but also because he wasn’t thinking clearly, due to abusing drugs and alcohol.

“I have a brain that wants to kill me. I have a brain that wants me dead. That’s how the alcoholic mind works and thinks. It thinks, ‘I’ll have a couple of cocktails, do a couple of lines and shut it down after three lines. Yeah, you can do that. We can do that Dean!’ Cut to the sun rising — y’know, it just never works out that way.”

Okay first of all I’m obviously out of the loop, because three lines! Is that seriously the definition of moderation these days? I’ve never been a cocaine gal, but I seriously can’t imagine getting to the mindset where a couple drinks and a couple lines is a jumping off point, especially as a parent of four kids. A fact that Dean seems to agree with, as he says:

“You can only fight that by hitting bottom. I need to change. I am on the verge of losing everything that means anything in this world, my wife and my family.”

Sorry for the pessimism, but I’m just having trouble believing anything that comes out of his mouth at this point. I feel like all he has to do for the above quote is just substitute ‘hitting bottom’ with ‘getting a reality TV show’, and he’s got it pretty much worked out for himself.

      This whole thing is so bizarre. They really should have gotten their stories straight.

        They certainly had the time!

      Tori and Dean should get their story straight. What is coming next? Did he had sex with a man and that made Tori feel less whatever or did Tori cheat too?

      Everyone knows that reality shows are not financially lucrative. There aren’t any royalties for re-runs, so I can’t even imagine what could motivate them to want to portray themselves as a cokehead cheater and a submissive housewife. I can’t believe Candy Spelling could be this heartless as to not slip her daughter a few million just to keep her from having to humiliate herself like this.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Lindsay Lohan reportedly got $2 million from Oprah to do that docu-series, so I don’t know that it’s necessarily accurate to portray reality shows in general as non-lucrative.

        It’s not like they have to go to set every day — the camera crews come to them and film what they’d be doing normally. Or as close to that as possible. Might as well get paid for that, right?

      Do these two think about anything other than themselves and their “problems”? They are rich people living a charmed life. They have nothing to complain about at all. There is nothing they don’t have that they want. They have everything and they still can’t be happy. They should live for a week in a house that’s too small and falling apart and not have enough money to pay their bills and be given $50 to live on and take away their SUVs and see how they do.

      I watched this episode of TrueTori (which when you say it out loud, sounds like you have a speech impediment), and Dean accidentally revealed everything we need to know about him. First, he called himself “insatiable,” but it doesn’t take a body language expert to see that he takes pride in that. Second, when Wolf asked him why he did what he did, he said it was because he thought he wouldn’t get caught. He was on the narcissistic high of having attention (he said as much himself, he was at an event for his job on a TV show) and he started a flirtation with a young, pretty girl. His narcissism would demand that he be paid in sex for his wonderfulness, that’s how the “narcissist brain” works. I have no doubt his ex-wife, Mary Jo Eustace, would shudder with the deja vu of the conversation where Tori confronts Dean about his lie that he wasn’t attracted to the woman he cheated with (that absolutely is, hands-down, one of the worst lies a cheater tells, but they usually go with that one). I distinctly remember reading how Dean and Mary Jo laughed together about how ugly he thought Tori was, and how he was not at all attracted to her, and Mary Jo joked that he should pretend to love her so they could get some of those Spelling bucks. I’d tell Tori to run, but then she’d have to pay him alimony. Stay married to him forever, Tori. Never let him free. Have your business manager, agent, and lawyer set it up so that he is no longer entitled to the money you make. Till death do you part.

      Also, Dean showed us how he works his magic. In the middle of his apology, his “woe is me” overtook him physically and Tori suddenly jumped up to take care of him.
