Monogamy is getting a transformation from Tori Spelling and her cheating husband.
The actress opened up about Dean McDermott’s infidelity on the “Today” show on Thursday and explained why she went against expectations and decided to stay by his side.
“I feel like we’re kind of turning monogamy on its head,” she said.
“(We’re) flipping it,” she continued, explaining how the depiction of marriage by “society” is a “fairy tale.”
“I thought it should be that way. And then when it wasn’t. ‘I was like, ‘Well, what do I do? I divorce my husband? I have four kids!’”
Cheating rumors long surrounded her 49-year-old husband and in 2013 a two-night affair with a then 28-year-old Emily Goodhand was exposed.
McDermott reportedly told Goodhand that he and Spelling were in a sexless marriage.
Despite the betrayal, Spelling said she never stopped loving McDermott and decided to “make this work.”
Since forgiving his wandering ways, Spelling said she and McDermott have rebuild the strained marriage.
“Things are really great right now, but you know what? We had to deconstruct our relationship, we really did,” she added.
Spelling says her marriage is “great’ two years after her husband’s affair.
The couple will celebrate a decade of marriage in May.
The reality starlet also slammed speculations of financial troubles, which swirled in January when American Express sued her for failing to pay her credit card balance.
“I just want that story to go away,” she told People magazine.
“We’re doing a great new series, I’m really happy, we’re doing a new show on Cooking Channel—we’re not bankrupt, we’re not struggling, we’re fine!” she added.
