Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott have been airing out their dirty laundry on their new reality show, "True Tori" and now some people are wondering if they may have lied about their marital issues just to ink a TV deal. On April 27, Radar Online reported that it is possible that Tori and Dean fabricated a cheating scandal to land them a reality show and get them some extra publicity. One of the reasons for this notion is the monologue that Tori read at the beginning of the first episode of "True Tori." Apparently some people felt that it was scripted.

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott had somewhat of a successful marriage to the public's knowledge until news of this cheating stuff broke. They had their ups and their downs but they both seemed very committed to each other. For many fans of the couple, it was hard to believe that Dean stepped out on Tori and risked losing her and his family because of a "sex addiction."

Another reason why some people question the validity of Tori and Dean's story is the timeline. As Radar Online points out, things don't seem to add up when you look at the timeline presented by Tori herself. She states that she found out about Dean's alleged affair just before Christmas and that Dean entered "full-time" rehab the next day. However, he was active on his social media accounts and he shared plenty of photos over the holidays, proving that he was spending most of his time at home with his family.

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott may have sold their fake story to Us Weekly as Tori reportedly has a great relationship with the mag responsible for breaking the story. Also, no woman has come forward to confirm that she and Dean slept together. Who is this Emily Goodhand anyway? Does the name sound like it might have been made up? Could Tori and Dean have made up these stories to help get themselves out of financial ruin? You be the judge.
