Sources close to Spelling say she is not eating, looks gaunt and tired and spends most of her days and nights "spying" on her husband, going so far as to constantly check his cell phone, to make sure he is not still cheating and that there are no other dalliances that will blindside her.
McDermott is alleged to have cheated on Spelling with Emily Goodhand while in Canada after telling Goodhand that he was locked in a "sexless marriage" and that Spelling would "not sleep with him."
Goodhand came forward after rumors started to swirl that McDermott had strayed while Spelling was in Los Angeles and he was in Canada. After having sex the first night the two met Goodhand claims McDermott invited her back to his room for a second night but the mood was spoiled when McDermott showed her a sex tape of he and Spelling.
Spelling and McDermott were both married to or with other people when the two met and became a couple. Their marriage has been wrought with accusations of outlandish spending while claiming to be destitute, cheating scandals and more.
Friends say the two are constantly fighting and that while McDermott has laughed off previous rumors of infidelity his silence over this alleged affair has all but confirmed to Spelling that it did happen.
Representatives for the couple have issued no statements regarding the alleged affair.
