The former 'Beverly Hills, 90210' star opens up about her emotional journey ahead of her divorce from her estranged husband, highlighting their early romance, co-parenting efforts and personal growth.

AceShowbiz - Tori Spelling is reminiscing on her journey with Dean McDermott following the pair's separation. On a recent episode of her "misSPELLING" podcast, the 51-year-old "Beverly Hills, 90210" actress recounted her days filming "Mind Over Murder", where she met McDermott in 2004.

In a humorous recollection, Spelling joked that Chris Albergini, the director of her sitcom "So Notorious", played a part in bringing the couple together. "I always jokingly blame one of our creators, Chris Albergini, because that night we had the read-through and the cast get-together," she recalled. The humorous blame game continued as Albergini responded, "I let it happen that you crawled across me to get to him and kissed him in the middle of, like, a bar?"

Despite the playful banter, Spelling clarified that she doesn't truly blame anyone, as it led to her and McDermott building a family together. Reflecting positively on their 18-year marriage, she shared, "I'm super happy. I'm grateful. We have five beautiful kids. I wouldn't change a moment of my journey. And Dean and I are super amicable and everything's great."

The former couple separated in June 2023, and Spelling filed for divorce in March 2024, citing "irreconcilable differences." In an extensive interview with Daily Mail, McDermott took full responsibility for the deterioration of their relationship, admitting to past infidelities. "All Tori's ever done to this day is want me to be happy and healthy and I inflicted a lot of damage and pain on that woman," McDermott confessed. He also revealed his struggles with substance abuse, noting that his drinking and narcotics use had strained their marriage to a breaking point.

Spelling, in her podcast, also revealed the "red flags" she noticed throughout their marriage, particularly related to McDermott's drinking habits. "When he would drink, it was hard because I knew that at some point, it would turn," she explained, referring to the unpredictable nature of his behavior while intoxicated. This pattern of behavior had made their life together a constant dance on eggshells.
