Tori Spelling is either going through a really tough time or going to great lengths to convince us she's going through a tough time for the sake of her new show.
Either way, it appears the combined pressure of her marital problems, parenting struggles and reality TV demands landed her in the hospital this weekend.
It's unclear why, but recently, the mother of four, 40, has been airing her tumultuous private life for the world to see on her Lifetime series True Tori.
Apparently, something was bad enough to keep her hospitalized for at least six days (!) before she returned home Saturday with a pink hospital band on.
A source says her husband was with her every step of the way during her hospital stay, staying with his maligned spouse for up to 10 hours every day.
"He would arrive by 10 a.m. and didn't leave until 8 most nights. He seemed very stressed out and worried," an observer said. ''He would bring food."
"He only left Tori to go outside to catch some air or make a phone call.''
Certainly a change of pace from his behavior in the recent past ...
The catalyst for their strife? Dean McDermott's affair with Emily Goodhand. Since that celebrity gossip scandal broke, their marriage has been in turmoil.
"He was my soulmate, but he completely broke my heart," Spelling said of Dean McDermott cheating. "It makes you not trust anything that's happened."
Since McDermott's betrayal, the couple has been trying to work out their issues - some might even say leveraging them - with a therapist on Lifetime.
"I can never give him enough sex!" Spelling declared through tears on the show, as Dean admits sex with her is less frequent and enjoyable than he'd like.
"He's never gonna be happy with just me," the actress lamented.
Here's wishing her a speedy recovery, and hoping that they can work things out for the sake of their family and/or bank accounts, if that's the real goal.
And where does Dean rank among these cheaters? You decide:
