It Was An Emotional Premiere For Tori Spelling's 'True Tori'


Tuesdays premiere of Tori Spelling’s new Lifetime docu-series “True Tori” was definitely a tear jerker. The episode showed a very emotionally fragile Tori, coming to terms with the fact that her husband, Dean McDermott, cheated on her just this past December.

Dean, voluntarily in rehab since January, was visited by Tori for the first time and we got to see it all. “I miss having my best friend” Spelling stated while on her drive to the rehabilitation center. "I miss having that support, that person that's your go-to in life. And now it's just stripped from me. I had it for seven years and it was just gone one day. And I go on. I go on every single day as best I can.”
