Dean’s court filing comes weeks after Tori revealed the reasons behind her decision to extend their marriage.

The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum, 50 — who admitted her heart hasn’t been broken since her “first love” Brian Austin Green — explained that preconceived ideas about her character kept her from moving forward before to finally file for divorce in March after 18 years of marriage. marriage.

“One of my biggest fears, and it may have made me stay longer, is that I feel like in our world it’s hard to be with a man and he doesn’t feel emasculated,” the star told Shannen Doherty on the latest episode about his misspelling. podcast.

“Not by our actions, but by who we are and who we have been labeled by society,” she continued. ‘We’re not just women who make money, we’re women who have power, we’re women who are famous, I don’t know any difference. I feel guilty.’

Tori then shared her concerns about meeting a future partner, expressing her uncertainty and vulnerability.

“How am I ever going to be with a man and he doesn’t feel inferior to me just because of my status?” she told Shannen.

Although she stayed in her marriage past its expiration point, Tori said she maintained friendly terms with Dean and his new girlfriend Lily Calo.

The actress said she now enjoys family meals with the new lovebirds.

“I really like Lily. Not bad. It’s just, you know, it’s different. RIGHT?’ the star said of the rallies in a recent episode of her misSpelling podcast.

Tori also opened up about the explosive fight between her and Dean that led to their split, during which the actress smashed a baked potato on the floor.

The actress said she and Dean started arguing after returning home from a day of filming in June 2023.

Dean allegedly made a remark to him that “he knew would be really hurtful to hear.”

The actress did not reveal Dean’s exact words, but recalled that his remark affected her deeply — to the point that she angrily smashed a loaded baked potato she was preparing on the floor of the kitchen.

“This guttural scream came out of me,” Tori remembers. “It wasn’t even like a sexy scream, like we were in a horror movie. It was like a beast. It wasn’t pretty at all.

‘And I was like, ‘Fuck you!’ And I took my most precious possession at that moment, my baked potato. It was loaded to perfection and I crushed it on the ground.

After his outburst, a wave of regret washed over Spelling. She retreated to a bedroom, thinking that she and Dean had been sleeping apart for about three years, a decision she attributed to him.

An “excited” Dean began banging on the locked door before entering the room through an exterior entrance that Tori had neglected to secure.

“So he came in and he was very, very upset. And he said, “I want a divorce. It’s over.” And I said, ‘OK. Great. OK.’

“One of my biggest fears, and it may have made me stay longer, is that I feel like in our world it’s hard to be with a man and he doesn’t feel emasculated,” the star said.

That day, Tori recalls, Dean publicly announced their divorce via an Instagram post, which she only became aware of when her 15-year-old daughter informed her.

She added: “I felt like this giant boulder had been lifted off my chest. I could breathe deeply and I was like, “Oh my God. He said it, so now I’m free.” . . he did it, and now I can move on. He published it, let’s go. Yes. I needed it. » “I couldn’t do it myself.

Dean deleted the post the next morning, but by then, news of the split had gone viral. The couple “carried on as if nothing had happened.”

Last month, on the same day that Tori Spelling recorded the first episode of her podcast, she called Dean McDermott on-air to inform him of her divorce filing.

A day later, Dean broke his silence on the divorce filing, saying he and Tori were “all good.”

The former couple met on the set of the TV movie Mind Over Murder in 2005.

There was an instant connection, even though both were already married.

“We had this period of falling in love very, quickly, passionately,” the actress said on her podcast, describing it as a “fast and furious romance.”

She praised Dean for letting her be herself. “I just remember that I could show him.”

She went on to explain, “It wasn’t cute, laughing, ‘That’s what people want me to be.’ I was able to be like, loud and like ugh, the body type of Tori. I could have had the face of a fowl,” she said.

“I’m not just Donna Martin, the perfect nice girl. I could have a bad girl in me and that was okay. And he loved all those sides and he loved how smart I was and accepted me.

In May 2006, Tori and Dean got married.

“How am I ever going to be with a man and he doesn’t feel inferior to me just because of my status?” she added

“Every guy I’ve ever been in a relationship with, I always say, ‘There’s a lot of bullshit that comes with me.’ I’m sorry, there’s the Tori Spelling in all of this.’; Dean seen in 2018

In a scoop revealed by DailyMail.com in October, it was revealed that Dean had started a new relationship with Lily, a 34-year-old account executive. He has since moved to live with her.

Not to be overshadowed, shortly after images of Dean with his new partner surfaced, Tori was spotted on a date with her CEO friend, Ryan Cramera.

However, despite these developments, Dean expressed his lasting love for Tori and shared no regrets about their shared past in a candid interview with DailyMail.com.

He said: “It was a real fairy tale. I mean, it was a beautiful love story. Love at first sight and getting married in the most beautiful way.

In the interview, Dean described how their marriage imploded as he and Tori separated – their problems compounded by his addiction to alcohol and prescription drugs.

“All Tori has done so far is wanted me to be happy and healthy and I have inflicted a lot of damage and pain on this woman,” he told DailyMail. com.

“I take responsibility for it today. And it’s the biggest fine I’ll ever have to make.
