The actress sat down with ‘Girls’ creator Lena Dunham for the latest edition of the ‘Lenny Letter’.
Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott’s martial problems became public knowledge two years ago, when the actor was accused of cheating on his wife. But instead of staying quiet on the rumours Spelling decided to document the couple’s problems on her reality show ‘True Tori’. Speaking to Lena Dunham, Spelling has explained why she decided to get so personal on her reality series, saying she "felt backed into a corner."
Tori Spelling has opened up about her husband’s cheating scandal.
"Like I didn't have a choice,” Spelling said in the latest edition of the 'Lenny Letter'. “Everything about me was stripped away with one magazine cover. That was it. It was that Us Weekly cover. I always say I can replay everything that happened during that time."

The former actress and reality star has been open about her financial problems in the past.
The 42 year old actress and sometime reality TV star is said to owe a sum of $37,981.97 on her AmEx card, according to legal documents obtained by TMZ. Spelling attempted to pay some of that back on June 26th last year, but the payment bounced and now American Express is demanding full payment of, plus interest on, the remaining balance.
As a result, RadarOnline.com has suggested that McDermott, her husband of nine years and the father of her four children, is trying to persuade his wife to file for bankruptcy in face of this latest development.
Is Tori Spelling's reality TV show too simplistic and stylised to be an accurate representation of the family's life?
In True Tori, Tori Spelling and her husband Dean McDermott attempt to bring the viewer an experience unlike any other reality television show in that the glitzy embellishments of their celebrity lifestyle is cast to one side in favour of a grittier, more relatable look at one family's trials and traumas.
Having premiered in April this year, the Lifestyle docu-series began three weeks into the aftermath of McDermott's adulterous affair whilst he films the first season of cooking reality series Chopped Canada in Toronto. The show brings to light the impact of how devastating cheating can be to a marriage dynamic, as seen in Tori and Dean's many tearful or angry therapy sessions.
The Beverly Hills 90210 actress has had the attention of a camera crew throughout her whole life, so it's not surprising that she is often so calm and direct when airing her grievances with her husband. However, the 41 year-old star has been accused of making up the affair for publicity and milking it with her new show.

Apparently, there are some deep psychological issues at the bottom of this story.
Things just veered from scandalous to troubling on the second episode of True Tori. In the episode, which aired Tuesday night on Lifetime, Dea McDermott had the floor to explain why he cheated. We’ve already had glimpses of McDermott’s issues – in January, he voluntarily entered rehab to seek treatment for his alleged sex addiction, after his infidelity with Emily Goodhand came to light a month earlier. This week (or at during the taping of True Tori) anyway, he finally went into detail about the slipup and what brought him there. Here's the play-by-play.
Apparently McDermott is struggling with sex addiction and self hate.
"I haven't dealt with any of it yet," Tori confesses at the start of Tuesday's show, before she admitted, talking over the couple’s marital problems with a single-dad friend. "All my friends have an opinion ... but at the end of the day I have to do what's right for my children."
The first episode of the series went over the events of last December.
Tori Spelling’s new lifetime show debuted last night after months of promotion. For Spelling and her husband Dean McDermott that also meant months of airing unpleasant details about their marriage and personal life. It worked. True Tori opened on Lifetime to an audience of 1.2 million viewers, according to THR. The story of McDermott’s infamous infidelity picked up almost immediately in the premiere episode. Spelling recalled for the cameras how McDermott initially tried to lie about cheating on her.
The drama has only begun on True Tori.
“He told me, ‘Nothing happened.’ Then he was looking at me and I noticed that his right eyebrow was shaking up and down. I said, ‘Why is your eyebrow shaking?’ Are you lying? And he said no.”
The couple dive straight into their marital troubles in the newly released trailer.
TV might have made some great strides in recent years, but if there’s one thing that hasn’t changed, it’s this: mention the word “sex” and you have people’s attention. Case in point: the promo for Tori Spelling’s new reality show (Spelling and reality TV, it’s not really a novel concept). In the confessional-style video, which has already been branded “shocking” by a number of news outlets, Tori mentions that her husband is apparently so addicted to the Deed, that she simply cannot give him enough. Would you like to know more? If so, then you’re in luck because Tori and estranged husband Dean McDermott are by no means shy about revealing the inner workings of their relationship.
Tori Spelling has plenty of emotional moments on the upcoming show.
The couple get personal as the show tracks their problems with his alleged infidelity and rehab in Lifetime's new six-episode docudrama, True Tori. "That's my worst nightmare [that] I cheated on my wife," McDermott, 47, says as the two are sitting on what appears to be a counselor's couch. "I was out of control. Sex was an escape, just like drugs or alcohol."
The actor and reality TV star is on the road to recovery.
Dean McDermott, the estranged husband of actress Tori Spelling, has checked into rehab in Los Angeles. The actor and reality television show star, who appeared alongside his wife and children in Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, has not disclosed why he has headed for treatment but the decision seems to have been made in the midst of allegations that McDermott cheated on his wife of seven years.
Dean McDermott Has Entered Rehab Amidst Rumors That He Cheated On Tori Spelling.
The couple hit a rough patch in December 2013 when Us Weekly reported than McDermott had had a one night stand with 28 year-old Canadian Emily Goodhand in early December. The gossip magazine alleged that McDermott had claimed that “he and Tori had a sexless marriage” to Goodhand before they hooked up.
Tori Spelling hasn't commented on a woman's claims her husband Dean McDermott cheated. But her lack of ring at a family outing may speak louder than words.
Tori Spelling has grown up in the public eye, so she generally knows exactly what to do in tumultuous situations — and that is to remain quiet. The actress hasn't said anything about rumors that her husband Dean McDermott has cheated on her.
Tori Spelling, Dean McDermott and their children visit Disney
Spelling may have made a mistake on Sunday when out with her kids in Encino, Calif. According to the Huffington Post, she was surrounded by photographers, who realized she was not wearing her wedding ring. Her lunch date included a friend and her four children.
Yet another scandal at the McDermott household.
Tory Spelling is in the rough – more specifically, her marriage is in the rough, after it was revealed that husband of seven years Dean McDermott had cheated on her. At least that’s the story according to Us Weekly, who first broke the news. According to the gossip mag, the “incident” occurred earlier in December, when McDermott was hosting Chopped Canada in Toronto. After the show, 40-year-old McDermott invited Emily Goodhand, a new acquaintance he had met that day, to his room at the Fairmont Royal Park Hotel, where they had sex.
If there is trouble at the McDermott household, they aren't letting it ruin Christmas.
"He told me he and Tori had a sexless marriage," Goodhand, 28, said for Us Weekly. "I believed him."
Move along, folks, nothing to see here.
Dean McDermott was quick to dispel rumours about the reported money troubles he and wife Tori Spelling were experiencing. Despite a recent story about the family going broke, which rather embarrassingly also claimed that the family could not afford a vasectomy for McDermott. Now the father-of-four has come forward to quell the gossip, saying for Us Weekly that his and Spelling’s many projects were going well enough for them to avoid financial trouble.
Even with an upcoming book and reality show, could Tori and Dean be in dire straits?
"Right now things are going well," McDermott, 46, tells Us. "I have several exciting projects in the works. Our show Dean and Tori's Backyard Bash just re-aired to great ratings, I'll be the new host of Chopped Canada and I have my first cookbook coming out -- The Gourmet Dad, in the spring," he points out. "Tori's book (Spelling It Like It Is) just launched this week and things are good." Books with punny titles aside, show business isn’t what it used to be. Even with a reality show on air, it’s possible for the family to be struggling, especially if the endorsement deals aren’t quite rolling in. This is all just speculation, of course, and McDermott remains unflinchingly optimistic.

So you thought you just saw Tori Spelling stranded on the sidewalk, right? Well, it was probably her. The mother-of-four found herself in a sticky situation this week when her car started leaking gas before eventually packing in during a family road trip!
"4 kids. 1 dog. 1 car leaking gas broken down on the side of the road= not a great road trip," Spelling posted to Twitter on Wednesday (February 6, 2013), along with a photo of herself with kids Liam, 5, Stella, 4, Hattie, 1, and new baby Finn, who was born in August. It's not clear whether husband Dean McDermott was along for the road trip, though it's likely he was the one holding the camera. The snap is actually one of those classic family photos, with Tori pulling one of those "I've had it," faces which is mimicked by daughter Stella. Young Liam just looks bored with the whole situation and wants to get back into a moving vehicle as soon as possible, while baby Hattie doesn't really care what happens.
The kids looked much happier during their trip to the dentist earlier this week, which father Dean documented on his blog. "The kids go to my dentist, who happens to be the nicest guy in the world. The kids took to him in a heartbeat. He had them asking questions, checking out equipment and generally excited for what was to come," he said.

Doing anything with multiple children requires the planning, precision and organisational skills that only Monica Gellar has, and even she crumbled during an afternoon with triplets. So, to see Tori Spelling stranded with four kids and a dog, we have nothing but compassion for her.
It's not even as if she's got kids old enough to look after the younger ones. Oh no, they're all 5 and younger: Liam aged 5, Stella, 4, Hattie, 1, and new baby Finn, who is only 6 months old. All but little Hattie had appropriate expressions on their faces in a photo Spelling posted on Twitter and Instagram of the event. Not only did Spelling herself look decidedly fed up, the rest of the troupe didn't seem particularly chipper. The dog was somewhat preoccupied though.

Tori Spelling is back in hospital, three weeks after giving birth to her fourth child. Unfortunately for the television star, the actress has suffered complications from her C-section.
The delivery of son Finn Davey – on August 30, 2012 – was Spelling’s fourth caesarean section and her second within a year. Daughter Hattie arrived last October, also by caesarean. A representative for the star told People magazine this week, “Tori underwent emergency surgery over the weekend due to complications from her c-section…She remains in the hospital and is resting comfortably”. The Craft Wars host, 39, and husband Dean McDermott are also parents to daughter Stella 4, and Liam, 5, as well as Jack, McDermott’s 13-year-old son from a previous marriage. Experts say that it’s not uncommon for women to have multiple C-sections, though that the procedure becomes more dangerous as the frequency of its increases. Dr Manny Alvarez, senior managing health editor of FoxNews.com, explained, “If there are short intervals in between, it can make the healing process more difficult”.
Around 30 per cent of new-borns in the United States are delivered by caesarean section. This means around 1.2 million C-sections are performed annually.
