When rumors of Dean McDermott’s affair first began to litter Twitter last year, Tori Spelling attempted to keep quiet, using Facebook photos to show off her allegedly happy family. That facade was quickly destroyed, however, with True Tori eventually offering an intriguing look at Tori and Dean’s post-affair life. Despite their earlier efforts to cover up the affair, Tori and Dean are now happy to air out their dirty laundry. What gives?
True Tori fans find it odd that, while Tori Spelling was initially eager to keep Dean McDermott’s cheating a secret, she later decided to put their relationship issues on full display. This rapid change has left some viewers wondering whether True Tori is as authentic as Tori Spelling claims.
The celebrity addressed these concerns during a recent interview with Extra, explaining that, right now, the most important thing was her commitment to “staying together as a family.” Tori insisted that, if Dean’s cheating scandal had been left out of the public eye, she probably would never have dealt with it on True Tori. But once the story hit headlines, it was impossible for her to continue sweeping it under the rug. “Obviously, if it hadn’t been made public initially, I wouldn’t have done it. I never would’ve gone that path. I would have kept it private and dealt with things, but it was so public when everything came out, that I felt that was the best choice at the time.”
Far from convincing fans of her show’s authenticity, Tori’s explanation has proven that the events included in the series are carefully chosen so as to abide by an intended narrative. Do you agree? Feel free to share your opinion in the comments section below!
