Tori Spelling "isn't gonna take" false reports about her marriage sitting down. The reality star/mother-of-four took to her blog on Thursday to slam a report that she and husband Dean McDermott are on the outs.
Star magazine's recent cover featured a headline that claimed the Beverly Hills, 90210 star and her spouse, 46, were on the brink of a divorce, a claim Spelling, 39, says is completely false. "This time I had to comment because this time I'm answering not as a celebrity but as a mom," Spelling wrote, adding that her five-year-old son Liam's "proudest achievement" so far in life was learning to read, but that "pride turned to sorrow thanks to Star magazine."
"I've built up a pretty thick skin to the lies and trash talking at this point, but my children are another story. Keep them out of it!" Spelling continues, explaining how her kids discovered the magazine in the supermarket. "[Liam] first spotted me on the cover, then dad, and then a picture of himself and his three younger siblings. He was able to read two things out loud, the word DIVORCE (which he proudly sounded out) and the caption above his picture which read 'Who will get the kids?' He became terrified."
I had to hurry him and his confused 4-year-old sister Stella out of the grocery store and into our car. By the time he was fastening himself into his car seat he was asking, 'Why is someone getting us? Where are you and Dad going?' He was anxiously biting his lower lip and his big blue eyes were filled with tears. My heart sank. How would I explain to my children that what these three writers who have never even met us but who claim to know the ins and outs of our relationship and have proudly put their names on this article are flat out writing lies?"
Spelling said she continually had to reassure her children, saying, "'That magazine doesn't know us. Daddy and I are very happy and in love. There will be no divorce and all of us will remain together as a family.' I'm lucky my two oldest are only five and four and couldn't read the fine details of the article where horrific claims were made against my husband, their dad."
The actress concluded her post by gushing over her husband, saying, "He has stood by me during the good times and held my hand through the darkest moments of my life. I'm so blessed to have him as my partner in life and love and he is the best father to our four children."
In addition to Stella and Liam, the couple are also parents to Hattie, 16 months, and son Finn, 7 months.
