“He cheated on me. One of my worst fears came true. On some level I never thought it would really happen,” Spelling said. She added that McDermott was her “soulmate,” but he “completely” broke her heart, so she now has trouble trusting in anything that has taken place in their relationship.

US Weekly initially reported on McDermott’s actions in December 2013, and shortly thereafter he entered rehab, publicly saying he was getting help for “health and personal issues,” according to CBS. He and Spelling have four children together, Finn, 20 months; Hattie, 2; Stella, 5; and Liam, 7. The couple has been attending therapy sessions to try and keep their marriage intact for the sake of their children, but Spelling told US Weekly, “I don’t know if my marriage can be saved.”

Their problems will be aired for all to see on Spelling’s new Lifetime network series, “True Tori,” which premieres on April 22. In previews for the show, Spelling can be seen saying, “I can never give him enough sex… He’s never gonna be happy with just me.”

On The Red Carpet reports that Spelling was married once before to actor Charlie Shahnaian, who she split from in April 2006 after only a year-and-a-half together. McDermott split from former spouse Mary Jo Eustace in Feb. 2006 after 12 years of marriage. Eustace penned a book in 2007 entitled “The Other Woman: Twenty-One Wives, Lovers, and Others Talk Openly about Sex, Deception, Love, and Betrayal,” in which she writes that McDermott cheated on her with Spelling.
