Tori Spelling: Dean Completely Broke My Heart

Tori Spelling is breaking her silence.

In December 2013, news broke that her husband of seven years, Dean McDermott, 47, had cheated on her with 28-year-old Emily Goodhand earlier that month. Now the mom-of-four, 40, talks to Us about the scandal and the fragile state of their union.

“He was my soulmate, but he completely broke my heart,” the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum says of her estranged husband, with whom she has four kids, Liam, 7, Stella, nearly 6, Hattie, 2, and Finn, 20 months. “It makes you not trust anything that’s happened in your relationship.”

The actress opens up just prior to her upcoming Lifetime docu-series, True Tori, which hits the small screen on April 22.

On why she is documenting their marital breakdown on TV, Tori says, “I feel so judged, but it’s not black and white.”

Meanwhile, friends of Tori talk to PEOPLE about their troubled pal.

“The decision to do this show is not coming from someone who is in a solid, good place. Tori is very, very upset and angry,” says a longtime friend of the actress. “It’s just too raw and personal. There’s too much pain and it’s too private.”

“A part of her wants to completely humiliate him and make him suffer in front of millions of people,” adds the insider. “She wants to have some sort of justice. She wants him to truly feel the pain of what he did to her.”

The couple began filming just days after Dean left rehab for sex addiction and will continue shooting for six episodes.

A friends says the show “was all Tori’s idea.” The pal adds: “She’s in a total crisis mode. If she can believe that his addiction has nothing to do with her, then maybe they can move on. But there’s no way Dean wants to be humiliated on television for cheating on his wife. His life is basically a nightmare.”

In the series, viewers will see Dean pleading Tori to let him return to their house after rehab. “My life means nothing if you’re not in it,” he says to her.

A source says Dean is staying at their home, but only for the sake of the couple’s four young children.

“They are focused on their kids,” adds the source. “Tori doesn’t consider her and Dean back together.”

As for their marriage, “Dean will do anything Tori says right now,” says a source. “And what better way to ensure that he will never cheat on her after this? I don’t think he’d ever want to go through this again.”

    Oh well, you completely broke Mary Jo , Charlie, jack and Lola’s hearts! You get what you give! I have ZERO sympathy for this vile woman! Airing their marital problems on TV is humiliating to their children, especially Jack. Sure hope whatever money she is making off of this, she saves it for her kids future therapy sessions…they are going to need it!

    they both cheated on their spouses when they got together. people: cheaters cheat.

    I still feel sorry for Tori for having to deal with this, especially four children, although it’s difficult to do that when she chooses to capitalize on this stress and hurt and drama via these continued reality shows.

    Soul Mate? She definitely didn’t inherit those traits from her father. He KNEW how to pick a WINNER!!!

    Dean’s killing himself trying to hang in there until AFTER Candy kicks the bucket. Gee I wonder what’s her attraction to the too-close-eyed, bloated, chronically unemployed, first family-abandoning, immigrant. Deport his arse, and send her with him. Candy can try again with her grandkids.

    It’s so sad that Tori has given birth to 4 children and all she got in return was a cheating husband. Oh the life of a woman, we sacrifice so much.

    Once a cheater, always a cheater. Unfortunate though.

    Guess she got a taste of her own medicine. If Dean was willing to cheat on his ex with her then I guess you know that there is a chance he’d cheat on you! I feel bad for the 4 kids. They are the one’s who lose in the end.

    I have no sympathy for Tori at all. maybe she now know how Mary Jo felt.I really think Dean was only with Tori for the fame.

    ” it’s too private” so lets make a reality show about it

    How embarrassing for Jack that this is going to be out there for his peers to all see on TV? To some degree the younger children might not have to deal with backlash now, but when they are older they could easily get ahold of these episodes. The children should not have to go through this.

    Tori should be ashamed of herself, how desperate must she be for money and further fame?!

    I will never respect her or sympathize with her when they complain about paparazzi invading their personal lives and space again. She is so willing to air her dirty filthy laundry to the world so how can someone like her then complain and whine about tabloids and paparazzi!!!!!

    Tori deserves what she got. She cheated on her husband and Dean cheated on his wife! Once a cheater, always a cheater!

    Can you really claim sex addiction for one woman, one time?

    Or could it be that there has been more than one woman?

    I tend to think in general (may not be in this case) but celebs/the public sometimes try and use sex addiction as an excuse/as a cover up. They aren’t really addicted but say that they are in order to receive some sympathy and not end up being completely hated and despised.

    “But there’s no way Dean wants to be humiliated on television for cheating on his wife.” – isn’t that what he’s known for? The guy who cheated on his wife with Tori Spelling?

    Some things are better kept in private and the fact that she doesn’t know the difference is sad. At the end of the day, she may be rich and famous but she’s also a trainwreck. I’d rather be poor than a walking joke.

    If he couldn’t keep in his pants while married to his first wife, why would he keep it in his pants married to her?
