Thanks — but never again! Dean McDermott is thankful for True Tori, the Lifetime series that broadcasted his marital issues with wife Tori Spelling, but he isn’t looking to put his relationship on display again anytime soon.
“Amazing, everything is great with mama,” McDermott told Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb during a segment on the Today show on Tuesday, April 28. “I’ve got a year and four months and counting and it is amazing,” he added of being sober.
As fans are well aware, the Lifetime docuseries chronicled the downfall of Spelling and McDermott’s marriage following the chef's affair with Emily Goodhand in December 2013.
“I don’t want to do the relationship stuff,” McDermott said when asked about quitting reality TV. “Sorting out your problems in the town square is not the way to go about it. [True Tori] was a great learning experience, it certainly expedited things that we needed to work on, but I would rather do fun stuff with the family.”
The Gourmet Dad cookbook author, who is dad to kids Liam, Stella, Hattie, and Finn with Spelling, explained to FOX411 he’s going to “do some stuff for the Cooking Channel” but it’s “going to be lighthearted” and "nothing like True Tori.”
“Those days of baring our souls to the world are over,” the Canadian-born actor said, before admitting, however, that True Tori did save their marriage. “It changed our lives and together we're stronger because of it and more in love."
