Dean McDermott, star of Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, is recovering today from a motorcycle accident in the intensive care unit. His wife, Tori Spelling, confirms that he’s “in a lot of pain” suffering from a punctured and collapsed lung. Keep reading for more details on Dean McDermott’s motorcycle accident and the lesson it taught him…

On Tuesday, Dean McDermott had an unfortunate accident while out riding dirt bikes with some friends. After the crash, the Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood was unable to move and was bleeding profusely from his right side. He was rushed to a Los Angeles-area hospital where he was admitted into the intensive care unit. His wife, Tori Spelling says he’s expected to make a full recovery, but he’s learned the risks of his daredevil pastime.

“He’s taking this as a sign and realizing family is too important to risk his life,” Tori Spelling says about her husband. She recounts how she learned the terrible news. ”His friend called me and said he was in the ER,” Tori Spelling says. ”He didn’t want to scare me so he just said he had a crash and that they were X-raying him. At first I was mad. I was pissed that he was out biking and crashed. But when I showed up and saw him lying there, and they told me they were admitting him to ICU with a collapsed lung, my heart dropped. My biggest fear had come true.”

This isn’t the first motorcycle accident for Dean McDermott. The Tori & Dean star took a major spill earlier this year during a race. After an ongoing feud with wife Tori Spelling about his dangerous hobby, he agreed to give up racing and only ride recreationally. It seems that, too, is about to change.

Tori Spelling says that Dean McDermott is “in a lot of pain” but the incident has taught him a valuable lesson. ”When I first saw him he just softly said ‘I’m so sorry,’” Spelling recalls. “I just held his hand and cried. That’s when he said, ‘I’ll never do this again. You and the kids mean everything to me.’”
