Dean McDermott still seems to carry a torch for Tori Spelling.
Despite ongoing speculation that the couple’s marriage is heading for divorce, the Canadian actor openly flirted with the “Beverly Hills, 90210” alum in a rare appearance on her reality show.
“You’re so cute, honey,” McDermott, 55, told Spelling, 49, in front of their kids in a teaser for Thursday’s episode of “@Home With Tori.”
The sweet feeling came when the family watched 14-year-old Spelling in the 1989 comedy “Troop Beverly Hills” from a backyard projector.
“Wait! See me, guys? That’s me!” yelled an excited Spelling, pointing to the screen, preceding McDermott’s affectionate remark.
The pair – who got married in May 2006 – share five children: son Liam (15), daughter Stella (14), daughter Hattie (10), son Finn (9) and son Beau (5).
Rumors that their relationship was on the rocks started doing the rounds in March 2021 after Spelling was spotted without her wedding ring. In June, she admitted that she and McDermott slept in separate bedrooms.
Then, in September, McDermott was seen without… to be wedding ring – but called speculation about their apparent split “weird”.
Spelling was then photographed removing large boxes from her car in November, while McDermott was absent from the family’s Christmas card the following month.
However, he labeled himself a “lucky man” as he gushed about Spelling in March of this year.
He called her “incredibly smart, creative, strong, fierce and funny” in an Instagram post celebrating International Women’s Day.
Unfortunately for McDermott, Spelling didn’t return the favor when Father’s Day rolled around. In fact, she and the brood of the duo spent the June break with Lance Bass and his family.
