Tori Spelling is doing a new reality show, which will document the rocky road she is navigating with love rat cheating husband, Dean McDermott, and an insider exclusively tells RadarOnline.com she’s only doing the project to humiliate the Canadian native — and is only being paid $100,000.
In a press release from Lifetime, the network states “the real story will be told as it should be, by Tori Spelling herself” and says the 40-year-old mother of four “has made the courageous decision to allow the audience to witness the most difficult and unpredictable period in her life.”
Titled True Tori, the series will focus on Candy Spelling‘s daughter but promises to reveal whether her marriage with McDermott, 47, will survive.
However, McDermott “is far from being a willing participant. He felt extremely pressured by Tori to do the reality show. Tori told him they had to do it because their fans want to know what is going on with their marriage. Too bad Dean doesn’t feel that way,” the insider told Radar.
“This should be a time of reflection, introspection, healing and figuring out what the next step is for them. The last thing Dean wants to deal with is production schedules and cameras. He asked Tori to wait a few months before doing the reality show, he just needs some time…but she insisted it had to be now. Reluctantly Dean agreed because he feels this is all his fault.”
As Radar exclusively reported earlier this month, Spelling’s family has been thrown into financial turmoil lately — and McDermott was spotted picking up groceries for the family on March 7 at Smart and Final, a discount warehouse chain in L.A. As he rolled a cart full of toilet paper, bread, and other groceries out to his car through the crowded parking lot, “He looked miserable,” an onlooker who contacted Radar said.
And last month Spelling was forced to close her antique store, InvenTORI, amid claims that the family is “broke.”
Our source says on the subject of money, “Tori isn’t doing the latest reality show for the money….Lifetime is only paying her $100,000 for the project.”
True Tori will premiere in just three weeks on April 22 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime.
