Full disclosure, this is not a picture of Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott’s joyous reunion. It’s an old picture. But it is pretty funny that Dean is carrying one of Tori’s current favorite stunt-based accessories, suspiciously official-looking documents. And when it comes to Tori and Dean, you can’t stay away in Canada for long. Eventually, you board a plane headed south and squash those divorce rumors for however long it takes before one of you is seen out and about without a wedding ring on. This time, The Deaner decided to come home and celebrate Thanksgiving with his family in Los Angeles, for the sake of the happiness of their five children.
Dean may have been MIA from the official Spelling-McDermott family Christmas card, but that doesn’t mean he’s unwelcome at all seasonal holidays and get-togethers. Dean is Canadian, which means he already celebrated turkey day a month ago. However, his possibly-estranged wife is American, and so are their 5 children, Liam, Stella, Hattie, Finn, and Beau. Which would be why he put some more miles on his passport and made it home for Thanksgiving. Dean was seen back in LA a few days before Thanksgiving; that’s where he was caught throwing hands on the ice during a hockey game. It’s been claimed that Tori and Dean’s marriage was heading for divorce for a while but that she’s been hanging on for the sake of their kids. This would explain why, amongst all the rumored animosity and wanting a divorce, Dean came home for dinner. via Us Weekly:
“Everyone chipped in for the cooking and preparation,” the insider says of the family-focused event. “They really are trying to celebrate the holidays as a family and put aside their differences.” The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum, 48, and the Slasher actor, 55, “have a lot of heated arguments and good and bad days,” the source says, noting that they are “still there for their children” no matter what.
“Most importantly, [they] want their kids to be happy,” insider explains, adding that the divorce may “still happen,” but for now, the couple have an “understanding” when it comes to the holidays. “They’re trying to just get through the rest of the year as one unit.”
Everyone chipped in for dinner? Does this mean Dean tossed a couple of saltine crackers onto the kitchen island along with a half-drank bottle of ice tea, mumbling something about it being all he could swipe from the craft service table on his Canadian movie shoot?
I will say though, it is nice that Tori and Dean were able to play nice during dinner and give their kids only a semi-awkward Thanksgiving dinner. I’m sure it took Tori and Dean a lot of self-control to keep it civil for their kids. Only their inner monologues contained their true feelings:
Tori: “There’s the giant turkey. And look, right next to it is a roasted 10 lb. bird.”
Dean: “It looks like someone already got into the stuffing. 500 CC’s of it, injected right into her cheeks.”
