Tori Spelling’s husband, Dean McDermott, may have quit True Tori, but the former Beverly Hills 90210 actress isn’t quite ready to say goodbye to reality TV. During an appearance on The Meredith Viera Show on Tuesday, Spelling confirmed the news.
“I know that Dean wants to silence his voice, he has said he doesn’t want to come back to the show, that he wants his privacy back,” Viera said, according to a November 25 report by Radar Online. “Is that going to be the case then?”
“Yes,” Spelling answered. Viera then asked, “Can you do a show without Dean being a part of it? Is that the end of the show now?”
“I don’t think so,” Tori Spelling revealed. “For me, it’s True Tori. I have a lot more to tell. I’m a mom. I’m a woman. And I want to go on.” Since the show debuted, Spelling has been criticized for showing too much on her series, but according to her, it’s been good for her mental state.
“I don’t [think it’s too much], because if everything hadn’t been made as public as it was, I would have chosen to deal with this privately with my husband. … I just chose to deal with it because it was my journey, my truth and women everywhere go through this. I wanted to put it out there.”
“It’s completely cathartic for me,” she continued. “It’s very individual, I know everyone has an opinion about me putting my life and relationship out there. It’s something, I needed that. I didn’t have a voice for so long, it’s almost the way I was raised.”
As the Inquisitr reported, McDermott appeared on Access Hollywood Live on November 5, where he revealed he would not be continuing with Tori Spelling on the show past its currently airing second season.
“I’m not going to continue with the show,” McDermott confirmed. “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. I don’t watch it, I can’t. It’s really difficult … I can’t do it any more, for my soul.”
That said, McDermott claimed he did appreciate what the show has done for his marriage. “The show has been great,” he explained. “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.”
