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.


90 Day Fiance Star David Toborowsky: My Son Was Shot in the Face

90 Day Fiance star David Toborowsky married Annie, even though she’s twice his age and his … well, he didn’t exactly win over a lot of viewers.

But while David is dismissed as a “deadbeat” by his daughter, it looks like he has a better relationship with his son, Jacob, who is 18 years old.

Jacob Toborowsky is currently recovering from a gunshot wound to the face, and David is thanking fans for their prayers as his son struggles with recovery and complications.

Guns are scary, folks.

David took to Facebook a few weeks ago to share the unfortunate news with his followers:

“On behalf of my family we wanted to thank each and everyone of you for the thoughts and prayers that have been sent and said for Jacob Toborowsky.”

Jacob is, of course, his son. He spelled out his name so awkwardly so that he could tag him in it.

The shooting, which is said to have been accidental but is nonetheless serious, took place on January 28th.

“He was shot in the face by a so called friend in a senseless stupid act. We will continue to monitor the situation on a legal front to ensure that justice prevails.”

We have an update on that, as well.

Jacob Toborowsky

His son is alive, but undergoing medical treatment. Because he was shot. In the face.

“Jacob went to Texas today to continue his recovery and possible surgeries. I will update as I can.”

He thanks everyone for their support, prayers, and well wishes.

“Again, we thank you from the bottom of our heart for the prayers and ask for continued prayers as he has a long road ahead of him.”

And, of course, there are updates.

“I wanted to give an update on my son Jacob,” David writes in a separate post.

“He had surgery yesterday down in Houston. The damage to the muscles in his face are more severe than 1st thought.”

Complications can be absolutely brutal.

“The main part of the bullet was removed.”

This was not a Dick Cheney situation — the gunshot came from a handgun.

“Please keep him in your prayers as the road he has is going to be long and hard. Thank you all again for the prayers, messages and thoughts.”

And, in case anyone was worried about the photos of Jacob that David posted, David went ahead and posted a disclaimer.

“I am posting these pics with his permission.”

Jacob’s mother, David’s ex, has also spoken up:

“He has to have surgery tomorrow to have a drain put in.”

A very necessary drain.

“He is accumulating fluid in the wound from the gland that was impacted from the bullet.”

And until the fluid build-up can be addressed, Jacob won’t be able to recover.

“His wound cannot heal with all the drainage.”

But his recovery will take more than healing some tissue, unfortunately.

“Then OT and speech therapy will begin as well. He will have to put bite blocks in his mouth to start trying to get it open.”

OT means occupational therapy. There’s much more to recovery than waiting for the swelling to go down, folks.

“I think I am still in shock from all of this.”

Speaking to RadarOnline, David Toborowsky gives further details on Jacob’s condition.

“Jacob had his surgery on Thursday to remove the bullet.”

That, of course, is only a small piece of the surgical puzzle.

“A significant amount of tissue was damaged. He will never be able to fully open his mouth all the way.”


“A lot of scar tissue had to be cleaned to remove the bullet. There is a lot of deep-tissue scarring.”

He shares what his ex had also revealed.

“He’s going back into surgery on Tuesday. They need to put a drain in for the gland to heal. He was in a lot of pain this weekend. It’s worse than we thought.”

David has also shared what’s happening in Kentucky, on the legal end of things.

“The Commonwealth of Kentucky charged the other kid with 1st degree assault and will go before the grand jury next month.”

Accidental or not, a teenager should know better than to, you know, shoot their friend in the face.

It’s easy — the vast majority of people spend their entire teen years not shooting people. 

Real actions should have real consequences, right? Jacob is certainly facing consequences for the gunshot.

And Jacob will have to live with the aftermath for the rest of his life.
