Tori Spelling 'wants a spinoff to show her authentic self' as she 'plans to file for divorce' from Dean McDermott

12/16/2021

TORI Spelling has said she would sign up for another reality show eight years after starring on True Tori.

The 48-year-old admitted being on reality TV "ties her closer" to fans and said it allows her to be "authentic" on-screens.

Speaking to Us Weekly, she said: "I like being able to be myself and be authentic. I feel like [being on reality TV] ties me closer to people and to the public. So I like having fun with [it].

"I truly believe in season 1 of True Tori, I felt like it was an important message.

"It was my way of getting my narrative [out] because everyone else was telling my story. It was a good message. I feel like for people everywhere going through that stuff."

The 90210 star starred reality shows, Tori & Dean: Inn Love, which aired from 2007 to 2013 on Oxygen, then True Tori in 2014 on Lifetime.

Last month, it was reported that Tori and Dean's marriage “has been over for a long time" and that the actress "plans to file for divorce soon."

Shortly after Tori hinted at her split from Dean, 55, by taking a family holiday card without him, a source close to the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum told E! News that their marriage is over.

The insider said: "The marriage is over and has been for a very long time now. Tori has met with her lawyers and is planning to file very soon. She's trying to work it all out and make sure she is financially OK first."

"It's for the best and has been a long time coming. They have been trying to work it out for years for the sake of the kids but they truly do not get along.

"They have been sleeping in different rooms for months and haven't considered themselves to be 'married' for a while now," the source added. "Tori's ready for a fresh new start but is trying to be strategic about it."

'NOT IN A GOOD PLACE'

In November, a source told PEOPLE they Tori and Dean are "not in a good place and have been evaluating their relationship.”

The insider continued: “It's been very chilly between them for a long time. They have been through the wringer before, but they've always gotten out of it.”

Dean admitted to cheating on Tori in 2014, while the couple spoke openly about Dean’s infidelity on their reality show True Tori.

The Canadian actor later checked himself into rehab following the scandal.

The source told the outlet: "Tori still has major trust issues. Part of their relationship was never fully repaired after he was unfaithful.

"They've been living separate lives. They will still have family meals and occasional outings, but it's for the kids."

HOLIDAY CARD DRAMA

Following months of split speculation, Tori added to the rumors when she revealed the family's holiday card without Dean last month.

In the snap, the Beverly Hills, 90210 star posed with their five kids- Liam, Stella, Hattie, Finn and Beau- as she held a rooster.

The card read: "Happy holidays. With love, from our farm to your home! xoxo, Tori & Family."

In addition to not being photographed, Dean was also not mentioned in the card.

Tori thanked the company "for once again bringing our happy family to life," calling the card her "favorite holiday card yet."

MORE HINTS

Tori continued to drop hints that the pair have split by showing off the family's Christmas stockings.

The star posted a photo of herself holding a stocking while posing next to five stockings with her kids' names on them.

Fans quickly noticed that Dean didn't have a stocking, as one Instagram user wrote: "Where is Dean's name Tori?" and another adding, "No dean?"

A second commenter replied: "At what point are they going to publicly acknowledge that they are not together and haven't been for a while? All these subtle hints…"
