Oof, last night’s episode of “True Tori,” one of the biggest car wrecks of a reality show I’ve ever watched, was a doozy. Quick recap: “True Tori” is a Lifetime celeb reality show about Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott, in the wake of his cheating “scandal.” Some think the cheating was concocted for the reality show, but while I think Tori and Dean are often acting their D-list balls off, the events are real. It’s a very odd show to watch, because it feels both so real and so fake all at once.
Anyway, on last night’s episode, Tori and Dean were at couples therapy and Dean was trying to explain what compelled him to cheat while he was in Toronto filming “Top Chef Canada.” Apparently he was sore about the fact that he and Tori didn’t have sex before he left on his trip, an excuse that Tori immediately called out as bullshit. As Tori explained it, they had not only been intimate in the weeks before his trip (if not the night before), but that she had “done things” she’d never done before and that the couple had paid two visits to a sex shop. Dean was quick to leave the room — because apparently talking about your sex life on TV goes too far, but putting your four kids on a show about the breakdown of your marriage does not — and viewers were left guessing what “things” Tori was talking about. My first hunch was obviously ANAL, but the two sex shop trips indicate that they needed special supplies. I don’t believe for a second that Tori and Dean have been in a seven-year marriage and have never used sexy toys in the bedroom, so the obvious conclusion — to me and echoed by Jezebel — is that they bought a strap-on and Tori pegged Dean with it. CASE CLOSED. Pegged it! (P.S. Ain’t no shame in stimulating that prostate, Dean. No judgement here!) Keep reading »
