Dean McDermott's Ex-Wife Speaks Out on His Marriage to Tori Spelling
This post has been edited on 10/21/08. The original post has been taken down and this new one has been put in its place.
If you're reading this, you most likely came here by doing a search on Tori Spelling or Dean McDermott. Little did I know when I wrote my original post that it would become the #1 result in Google for various searches on this couple. I never thought my little rant would go any farther than my small world.
Unfortunately it has and others have used it as fodder to try to smear Tori and Dean. I recently came across a site that Tori was interviewed on, where someone copied my post in the comment section and left their name as "The Blonde" (as if I'd left the comment myself).
I never would've written what I did if I knew it was possible to be read by either of them, or that it would garner so much attention. It was an angry rant that had more to do with the issue of cheating spouses than it did with them personally.
I still do feel the way I do about that general subject. But after reading my words again...having to face them after some time had passed...I have to admit I cringed. I was ashamed to know that I had been the one behind such venomous words.
My heart still hurts for their former spouses and the pain they endured. And most especially for McDermott's son and the baby that he almost adopted with his ex.
But I realize that all involved are human beings. That no one is perfect. And none of us have a right to sit in judgement of others.
As a Christian, that was very wrong of me and it was shameful to both myself and my faith. Quite frankly, it is none of my business. Their celebrity status does not give myself or anyone else the right to judge them or ridicule their choices, right or wrong.
I have no idea if they themselves have seen this post, or if they even care if they did. But I want it to be known that I am sorry for my words. I would like a clear conscience. I would like to be proud of my words here, not ashamed of them.
Thus, I have deleted the original post and have put this one up in its place.
I apologize to Tori and Dean and to others out there in their situation that I indirectly insulted.
I will not be deleting your comments here as I feel that would not be right (even though they too make me cringe reading them, especially knowing that my post incited them). I hope, though, that future visitors might think on this a little more deeply and will agree with me that we should not judge.
Peace to all of you.
