Even though Tori Spelling is refusing to publicly acknowledge reports that Dean McDermott cheated on her, the former 90210 star is making her husband's home life a living hell, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
As Radar previously reported, a 28-year-old Canadian woman namedEmily Goodhand claimed she had a few rolls-in-the-hay with McDermott, 47, at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto while he was in the northeast for a TV gig earlier this month.
Despite the cheating allegations, the mother of four posted a cheerful Christmas picture and message to fans: “I wanted to take a minute to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas, and for those of you who don’t celebrate Christmas, a very happy holiday season!
“As another year comes to a close, I can’t help but feel so grateful for all of my blessings. My beautiful family, my amazing friends, and of course, all of you!”
Spelling said she and her family were “spending the day together – cuddling, cooking, baking, unwrapping gifts, eating, watching movies and counting our blessings,” signing the letter “T, Dean, Liam, Stella, Hattie + Finn.”
But sources tell Radar, "It's all a calculated plan on Tori's part...she is refusing to comment on the cheating rumors publicly, even though she believes Dean did cheat on her.
"Tori is obsessed with having a picture perfect family, and thinks it's a big part of her image. Commenting or addressing the cheating would taint that image. Things are very tense in the house right now, and Tori is making Dean's life hell."
The source added, "Even though she is trying not to fight in front of the kids, it's impossible. She has been crying and screaming at Dean, and saying he has ruined everything, including Christmas.
"Sadly, Liam and Stella know their parents are fighting and it's only a matter of time until they find out why. Dean even offered to move out, but Tori wouldn't allow it. It's a very unhealthy environment, and the kids are being impacted by it."
Goodhand told the magazine that McDermott, who’s been married to Spelling for seven years, told her that he “had a sexless marriage” with his wife.
McDermott was formerly married to Canadian actress Mary Jo Eustace before leaving her for Spelling.
Deep down, Spelling "has always been very insecure about her relationship with Dean....she has been telling friends she always had a deep, dark feeling that Dean would cheat on her," the insider concluded.
"She has never completely trusted him and has always kept very close tabs on Dean. But despite all that, Dean still cheated."
