Tori Spelling Opens Up What Forced Her to Stay Married to Dean McDermott Longer

In a new episode of her 'misSpelling' podcast, the 'Beverly Hills, 90210' alum reveals she used to have her 'biggest fear' that kept her in her marriage to the actor.

AceShowbiz - Tori Spelling got candid about her relationship with estranged husband Dean McDermott. In a new episode of her "misSpelling" podcast, the former "Beverly Hills, 90210" star revealed she used to have her "biggest fear" that kept her in her marriage to the actor.

Speaking to her former "Beverly Hills, 90210" co-star Shannen Doherty, Tori admitted that it would be hard for her to find a man who would respect her success. "One of my biggest fears, and this perhaps did make me stay longer, is I feel like in our world it's difficult to be with a man and have him not feel emasculated," she said in the Thursday, April 25 episode of the podcast.

"Not by our doing, but by who we are and have been labeled by society," the 50-year-old further explained. "We're not just women who make money. We're women that have power, we're women that have fame. I don't know any different. I feel guilty. Like, how am I ever gonna be with a man and he doesn't feel like less than me just because of my status?"

Shannen responded by reminding her pal that there are also "men that have their own status." She added, "Maybe in a completely different field. Maybe a man is a partner at one of the top law firms."

The "Heathers" star divulged, "So everything he did - going to school, graduating, being an intern, working his way up the ladder - has shown that he's a really hard worker with a ton of perseverance and believes in himself enough in order to get there."

Still, the 53-year-old "Charmed" alum said she could relate to Tori's fear. She noted that it can be difficult "to be with a woman that can get a reservation at any restaurant."

Shannen's consolation apparently wasn't enough to comfort Tori. "Every guy that I've ever been in a relationship with, I always say, 'There's a lot s**t that goes along with me,' " she said. "I'm sorry, there's the Tori Spelling of it all."

Tori and Dean announced their split after 18 years of marriage. She filed for divorce in March, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason of the separation.
