Tori Spelling Tells Dean McDermott She Filed for Divorce During New Podcast ‘Misspelling’

Tori Spelling is letting fans experience a hugely personal moment in her life by releasing audio of the moment she told Dean McDermott that she had filed for divorce after nearly 18 years of marriage.

The 50-year-old “Beverly Hills, 90210” star debuted the first episode of her new podcast “misSPELLING” on Sunday, days after filing for divorce from McDermott. Early in the podcast, Spelling nervously tells listeners that she is about to call McDermott and inform him of the divorce filing.

“I don’t know what feels more like a punch in the stomach: that it’s there and final, or that I should call him right now,” she says. “He’s working, guys. This sucks.”

After Spelling leaves a message, McDermott calls back about eight minutes later. Although listeners only hear one side of the phone conversation, Spelling says, “I hate to do this to you,” as McDermott goes to work before telling him that “they did it.” He first appears to express concern about the consequences of her divorce filing.

“I feel like I deserve to be the first to file,” she tells him.

When she answers, Spelling tells listeners that her ex told her, “Great, good. I have a lawyer. I was going to do this, but cool. Saves me $500.”

The actress also says she has “never felt so alone in 50 years,” despite being in a “room full of friends” recording a podcast. “I don’t feel worth loving,” she says. “That is the truth.”

Spelling and McDermott had been married since 2006. The couple have five children: Liam Aaron, 17, Stella Doreen, 15, Hattie Margaret, 12, Finn Davey, 11 and Beau Dean, 7.

The divorce filing came after McDermott revealed last year that he and Spelling had divorced. He spoke about the breakdown of their relationship in an interview with the Daily Mail last year, telling the newspaper that his substance abuse problems were a factor. “We were roommates,” he said. “Rarely, rarely, rarely did we eat together. We would sit down and have a family meal, but it was always disjointed.”

On the podcast, Spelling can be heard telling McDermott that it made sense for her to file for divorce first after he “disclosed everything to Daily Mail,” adding that he “revealed things that I would never have revealed to anyone.”

Spelling later reflects on red flags in her relationship with McDermott, including his alleged “anger issues,” and says their relationship was “never the same” after they had children. She adds that McDermott’s “lack of sobriety” has affected her and their children for years, although she is “very happy” that he is now sober.

“Our relationship definitely changed to the point where I felt like I was here alone with the kids,” she says.
