Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott have somehow managed to salvage both of their careers with True Tori, but the future of their ‘relationship’ rests solely on the fate of the show. Let’s be real here, neither one of them is invested in their marriage anymore, and if it wasn’t for the show and/or the money involved, they would be getting a divorce faster than you can famewhore.
But alas, they do have the show to consider, and although the ratings have steadily been diving since the show first premiered on Lifetime, it’s seemed to stabilize over the last few episodes. Unfortunately for us, that means that we’re might be stuck with the show again – as we get to see the followup on their vile marriage and by extension, Tori’s and Dean’s never-ending fake relationship drama.
It’s pretty obvious [both in real life and on the show] that Tori and Dean are sick of each other, and Dean would do anything to get away from Tori permanently. He’s done with their marriage, he’s done with her, and now that everyone knows he’s been cheating on her, he’s finally free to leave their relationship as he sees fit. Of course, if he does leave, he’ll also be leaving behind potential millions, not to mention the costly divorce that would follow. Thus, following that line of thought, it’s clear why he’s sticking around.
Sources close to Dean have also confirmed that he’s hoping to cash in on the show while it’s hot, and provided the second season gets renewed, he’s planning on negotiating an ironclad contract that will allow him enough money – and once he gets that money, he’ll finally achieve his goal of being rid of Tori Spelling for good. And if the show doesn’t get renewed – well, that’s probably the last we see of him either way.
