Dean Didn’t Understand How It Would Hit The Family

However, when Dean McDermott took the step of posting the split on social media, he didn’t understand the effect it would have on Tori Spelling and his kids. Sadly, he says he came to his senses and later deleted the post, but the damage had already occurred. Regrettably, he expresses, “I was literally at my wit’s end.” Continuing, “That night, I was drinking and I was into my pills. After I sent the post, I took some more pills, and I took six or seven Ambien in the hopes that I would not wake up.” But, in retrospect, he is very thankful the attempt wasn’t successful. Undoubtedly, it would have caused a great deal of pain for the family.

His Mistake Still Led To Some Positive Change

While Dean McDermott knows this wasn’t the right way to break the news, he also credits that it “got people’s attention.” And the statement assisted him in reaching people who could get him help. Dean reflects, “It fell in the ears of people I wanted it to fall into.” Additionally, he says, “I was so full of shame and it was such a horrible idea. And then my kids were really, really hurt.” In many ways, he needed this to hit rock bottom. At this point, Tori Spelling reportedly asked him to seek treatment.
