Tori Spelling Tries to Remain "Brave" in Face of Marital Crisis

90210? More like 9021... oh no, Tori Spelling.

That's the sort of joke we'd typically make about the actress if she got into some kind of trouble or scandal that we deemed worthy of an article.

But we're just not in the mood at the moment.

Not when Spelling appears to be spiraling so far down that a dig about how Donna Martin deserves to graduate simply feels trite and inappropriate.

To open the month, in case you forgot, police responded to a call from Spelling and husband Dean McDermott's home.

Upon arrival, they discovered the mother of five reportedly acting erratically and irresponsibly, with sources claiming Spelling suffered a nervous breakdown of some sort.

She was taken to the hospital at the time for evaluation.

Was this episode caused by a fight with McDermott?

By the marriage being on the rocks and even nearing divorce?

We can't say for certain...

... but we can say that McDermott called authorities for a second time on March 8, as he feared for his wife "well-being," sources confirm, due to her strange behavior.

Deputies spoke to Spelling after this incident and determined that no action needed to be taken.

But fans are suddenly extremely worried about Spelling's mental state.

Should they be?

Is the veteran actress, who has become more known these days for giving birth to lots of kids and struggling with both her relationship and her finances, on the verge of legitimate breakdown?

Perhaps, although Tori sought to quell these concerns on Instagram over the weekend.

 “I’m strong. I’m amazing. I’m beautiful. I’m wonderful. I’m worthy. I’m loved. I’m brave. I’m sweet. I’m happy. I’m me,” wrote the 44-year old as a clear message to fans and critics.

She even circled the words “I’m me” in red to make them stand out.

Spelling later shared a quick clip of her one-year-old son, Beau, trying sushi for the first time.

(Spelling and McDermott also share four other kids: Liam, 10, Stella, 9, Hattie, 6, and Finn, 5. It's a busy household, for sure.)

And while Spelling may have been trying to assure fans that everything is okay via this posting, an insider tells Entertainment Tonight that everything is NOT okay.

Not with her marriage, at least.

Simply put?

"Tori and Dean’s marriage is in shambles despite having a sit down last week to try to make it work," this outlet reports, adding:

"They made an attempt to use the tools given to them by their therapist to create a healthy environment for the kids but it isn’t working.

What's the problem?

"One of Tori’s main issues with Dean is he isn't helping with the kids as much as she feels he should," ET writes.

"He used to do everything but has stepped away and started taking more time for himself."

There's been chatter for years that this romance is on the brink of disaster, but recent event make this rumors appear closer to reality than ever before.

"Dean is trying to be calm and handle things," the source concludes. "He doesn't want to raise his voice or say anything that she could misconstrue to the police.

"She panics every time he is out.

"If she doesn't know exactly where he is, her anxiety goes through the roof. She seems to live in fear he will cheat again."

We hope these stars work out their issues, considering they are the parents to five young kids.

And, if they do not, we hope Spelling finds some mental peace amid the turmoil.

McDermott seems to sort of suck anyway.

She can do better.
