True Tori Recap: Episode 8, “Confessions”

True Tori : Confessions could have been about five minutes long if Tori and Dean would say “We confess that we made this all up. Sorry!” And then showed us a montage of Tori and Dean’s ugly crying. But it’s not. Boooooo. Tori is sitting on her bed again. Can we get a montage of Tori on her bed too? Tori says that her therapy sessions sometimes last for hours. Or in Dr. Wexler’s mind, “Hour$$$$$$$$$” Tori gave us an extended scene of the moment when Tori said that she and Dean were having crazy circus-sex. She never revealed exactly […]

True Tori Recap: Episode 7, the Reunion: All Questions Answered

The True Tori reunion special. For the first time since Dean left for Chopped: Canada, Tori and Dean sit down to answer Brooke Anderson’s questions. Brooke, who perhaps raided Dr. Wexler’s closet for her pantsuit choice is charged with not only asking the pressing questions, but keeping a straight face throughout the circus ridiculous. On with the acting, show! Brooke Anderson prefaces each of her questions with “A lot of people.” Who are these people? Where are they? Because I can’t find them on any chat boards and certainly not reading and commenting on my recaps. Watching the show’s recap […]

Tonight on Lifetime, True Tori: The Reunion

I thought that last week was the final episode of True Tori, but no, the universe curses me again!! Tonight, we get another chance for Tori to “find her voice” and tell us “her True sTori” on True Tori The Reunion: All Questions Answered. Bleech! Thankfully, the kids won’t be around to see Tori cry or yell at Dean, but I heartily doubt that many of my questions will be answered, namely, 1)does Dean still use the phrase “the cat’s ass,” 2) do Tori’s friends Jess, Andy and Mehran charge her by the hour for their advice?  3) is Dr. […]

True Tori Episode 6 Recap: Stay or Go

Okay kids, you’ve been good, I promise this will be over quickly. We’ve sat patiently for 5 weeks, through tummy lumps and cat’s ass, through ugly cries and ugly yelling and now we’re at episode 6, where either Tori and Dean come to a resolution, or like the Spelling that she is, gives us the dreaded “to be continued…” Grab your booze, we’re heading in… Tori is having more beautiful pictures taken. Her photographer is amazing. She deserves her own show. I’ve watched all of the love stories, I’ve watched all of the movies,” Tori still wants the fairytale. Didn’t […]

True Tori Episode 5 Recap: I Love Him and I Hate Him

Okay Tori fans, we face the penultimate episode of True Tori and we’re elbow deep in Tori finding her voice, Dean looking grizzled, and the kid running around in an adorable herd. I promise that this episode will offer a few reality gems (nothing as epic as “the cat’s ass,”) so if you’re patient in this episode, you will be rewarded. I”m also trying to build a better timeline of this show, since the opening credits say “3 weeks, 2 cameras, 1 story.”  I’ve been feeling that the timelines are a little fuzzy, so I’ll show the dates, as listed […]

Oh Snap, Tori’s finding her mama bear voice. Dean had better guard his loins! This week’s preview clip had the yelling that I’ve been craving for a few weeks.

Let’s get to the episode, shall we? While looking at another beautiful picture of Tori and Dean, Tori says she and Dean used to be the PDA couple. “I opened my heart to Dean and I gave him everything.” […]

New True Tori Tonight. And Tori Cheated On Hubby #1. Surprised?

Just as I guessed after last week’s juicy True Tori tease…this week’s episode reveals that Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott cheated on their previous souses with each other! Given that Tori and Dean married each other a few weeks after Tori’s divorce to hubby #1 was finalized, it seemed pretty obvious that there was some marital infidelity involved. If Dean (and Tori) has already been shown to be a cheater, is it any surprise that there’d be cheating again? Once you’re okay with flexible fidelity, don’t be surprised when the same flexibility is leveraged against you. Lifetime has shared a […]
