Tori Spelling & Dean McDermott: "Cabin Fever" Reality Show Further Illustrates Thirst For Fame

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Just weeks after Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott aired their dirty laundry and then some on True Tori, the couple is back with yet another reality show.

While it was filmed last year, before Dean cheated on Tori Spelling with the possibly fake Emily Goodhand, it further epitomizes their desperate thirst for fame.

“Tori’s friends weren’t surprised that she had signed up to do another reality show,” an insider said of their latest effort, Tori & Dean: Cabin Fever.

“Tori just can’t stay away from reality shows, and really wants to try and show the world that her family life is just as normal as everyone else’s.”

“Even though she was criticized for doing a reality show as she was dealing with Dean’s cheating scandal, Tori didn’t care,” the source revealed.

“And now, even though she currently has her scripted show Mystery Girls with ABC Family, and this new reality show too, Tori wants to film another one!”

The Great American Country series, Tori & Dean: Cabin Fever, follows the California family as they leave L.A. to renovate a cottage in Dean's native Canada.

Cracks were already showing in their marriage, pre-Emily Goodhand boning.

“We need to get on the same page,” McDermott, 47, says in the preview.

“Men and women are never on the same page,” Spelling, 41, laments.

The troubled pair’s four kids, Liam, 7, Stella, 6, Hattie, 2, and Finn, 1, are also prominently featured in the show, and will likely need a lot of therapy one day.

Probably the best/worst part of this, though?

According to both the actual homeowner and realtor featured on the premiere, they didn't actually buy the cottage and only entered into a rental agreement.

“I still own the house,” the Toronto resident registered to the home says. “I’m retired now, so I gave it to my sons. And yes, they filmed a reality TV show there.”

Todd Jeffries, the real estate agent featured, says he doesn’t even normally trade in that area and was approached by producers to do the show.

“I wasn’t involved in the rental side of it and I don’t really know what the arrangement was,” Jeffries said, making you wonder if anything these two do is real.
