Dean McDermott has entered rehab. On Jan. 23, Huffington Post confirmed that the reality star and host of "Chopped: Canada" has sought treatment in a rehab facility for "health and personal issues." This news comes on the heels of some very serious cheating allegations and rumors that Tori was at wits end with her husband of eight years (in May).

"I am truly sorry for the mistakes I have made and for the pain I've caused my family. I take full responsibility for my actions and have voluntarily checked myself into a treatment center to address some health and personal issues. I am grateful to be getting the help I need so I can become the husband and father my family deserves," McDermott said in a statement to People Magazine today (via Huffington Post).

McDermott's rehab decision was likely influenced by Tori as speculation about their failing marriage was at a fever pitch this month. It is possible that Tori gave Dean an ultimatum of sorts and that Dean took the option of rehab in order to stay with his wife and keep their family together. However, if Tori does believe that Dean cheated on her, it's going to be very hard for her to forgive and forget, rehab or not.

Once that level of trust is broken, it's extremely difficult to have a happy marriage. Do you think Tori and Dean will end up getting divorced?

Will McDermott's time in rehab help their marriage?
