Oh, Dean McDermott. On Monday the fading stunt queen was photographed getting into a dramatic fistfight during a hockey game in LA. Luckily, the paps show up to every one of Dean’s dad-league games, and they managed to capture the totally-not-staged tussle in stunning HD! Alas, proving his manhood on the ice can’t save his marriage to Tori Spelling. Earlier this week Dean was cut from the family holiday card (Tori’s excuse is he was working in Canada), and now his Christmas stocking has disappeared from the mantle in another one of Tori’s Instagram pics (a paid partnership, of course). People’s sources confirm the obvious: Tori and Dean are living separate lives.
People’s first source says Tori and Dean are “not in a good place and have been evaluating their relationship”:
“It’s been very chilly between them for a long time. They have been through the wringer before, but they’ve always gotten out of it.”
“Tori still has major trust issues. Part of their relationship was never fully repaired after he was unfaithful,” the source continues. “They’ve been living separate lives. They will still have family meals and occasional outings, but it’s for the kids.” (Following the affair, the couple documented their life together on their reality series True Tori.)
“She thinks the kids need their dad. These are their fundamental years and they’ve fought to stay together for the kids.”
“Dean has a really, really good bond with the kids,” the source adds. “He’s been a stabilizing force for them.”
Still, the source says trust issues are indeed at play: “Tori still has major trust issues with Dean. And he’s like, ‘We moved on from that.’ It’s complicated and a very toxic and rocky situation.”
Yet another source says Tori’s been “keeping to herself more” as her marriage implodes:
“It’s true he has been in Canada filming,” the source says. “But [for Tori] being alone with five kids and expected to handle all the day-to-day responsibilities that come along with that really took a big toll on their relationship.”
Another totally imaginary source I’m making up right this second added:
Guess what, bitches? Tori wants to kick her doofus husband to the curb, but she doesn’t have the cash to battle it out in court! Now pop Mother, May I Sleep with Danger? (1996) into the VCR and let’s get hiiiigh!
Hmmm, that last source sounds fun. Here are the McDermott-Spelling stockings sans Dean (they FedExed his Terry’s Chocolate Orange to Canada):
And here are Page Six’s photos of Dean’s red-faced hockey fight (the middle pic looks like Dean’s giving a noogie):
