Tori Spelling was hospitalized after the premiere of her new Lifetime reality show, “True Tori.” The 40-year-old, who agreed to document her recent marriage woes with her embattled husband, Dean McDermott, has apparently been in the hospital for nearly a week for undisclosed reasons, E! News reported Sunday.
Though it’s not clear what led to Spelling’s hospital stay or how long she was there, the news site said she was spotted leaving on Saturday at about 3 p.m. with a pink hospital band around her wrist. McDermott, 47, was there to take her home in a black SUV.
A source told E! News that her husband stayed by her side through the ordeal up to 10 hours a day. "He would arrive by 10am and didn't leave until 8 most nights. He seemed very stressed out and worried," the insider said. ''He would bring food and often only left Tori to go outside to catch some air or make a phone call.''
According an insider who spoke to Us Weekly, Spelling allowed her reality show’s cameras into the hospital. The insider told Us Weekly that the former “90210” star's hospitalization was partly do to her being “very stressed right now.”
Her marriage has made the headlines of numerous magazine covers ever since it was revealed McDermott had an affair with 28-year-old Emily Goodhand while he was allegedly filming “Chopped Canada.” Rumors, however, have begun to circulate that Spelling might have made up the cheating scandal just to get another reality show. Many have wondered whether “Emily Goodhand” even exists.
Spelling hasn’t responded to gossip that she fabricated her husband’s affair. But instead took to her blog last week to share her thoughts. "I wanted to take a moment to address what's been going on in my life over the last several months. Our family has been going through an incredibly difficult and trying time, and the story of what I've been going through has been told by everyone except for me. So, it's time for me to set the record straight."
Before “True Tori” premiered on Lifetime, she explained why she chose to document her fragile relationship. "Throughout my life, the tabloids have told every story you could imagine -- and they always got it wrong," she continued. "I needed the chance to tell my own story. At the moment, I don't know if it will have a happy ending. But I need to get my voice back, and this is my way of doing that."
