Dean McDermott Opens Up About Affair to Get Ratings
Dean McDermott, the 47-year-old embattled husband of 90210 star Tori Spelling, is opening up about his affair with 28-year-old Emily Woodhand. However, his candidness comes with a price: a reality TV show. In a move that starts to make the entire affair seem staged, both Spelling and McDermott agreed to take part in a docu-drama called “True Tori” which shows how the couple deals with McDermott’s extramarital affair. In one scene of the reality show, McDermott tells a friend that he cheated on his wife because he thought he could get away with it.
If the comment is true, it portends to him being what’s known as a risk taker. Risk takers in any sort of sexual deviancy, such as adulterers, are the ones who have the hardest time rehabilitating. He also admits to drinking and taking drugs. Usually, when substance abuse is invoked within the context of a sexual deviancy, it is done to diminish the victimizer’s culpability. It is tantamount to a “Devil made me do it” plea. In fact, he claimed that it’s his brain that wants to bring about his demise. He said his brain wants him to engage in activities that will claim his life. Exactly what part of this explanation is supposed to convince Spelling to stick it out with him?
