Playing Dean McDermott: I'm Not The First Guy to Cheat on My Wife

Controversial couple Dean McDermott and Tori Spelling just can't catch a break.

In a revealing new interview with ET Canada, Dean, 47, speaks out about his overwhelmingly negative reputation.

"You know, when you're at the checkout and you look over and you see one of these magazines and it's like, 'Dean McDermott's a monster,' and I'm like, 'No, I'm not a monster, I'm a human being and I messed up,'" he tells ET Canada's Cheryl Hickey. "I messed up and I'm owning up to it and I'm getting help. But to label me a monster or evil is very hurtful. ... You know, I'm not the first person to ever cheat on his wife. The affair was more about how I was feeling about myself than having an affair."

But whatever the reason behind his infidelity, the couple is still dealing with the consequences, with Tori, 41, now admitting in next week's brand-new True Tori that she no longer wants to have any more children with Dean.

The two already have four children together -- Liam, 7, Stella, 6, Hattie, 3 and Finn, 2 -- and Dean has a son Jack, 6, from his previous marriage to Mary Jo Eustace.

"Because of what I went through, I know that I don't want to have any more babies with him," she says bluntly in the preview.

Unsurprisingly, Dean is stunned speechless.

"There's consequences to actions," Tori continues. "I felt the need to say it."

To a make things worse, in the midst of all their True Tori season two drama, Tori also recently got hospitalized, with some reports claiming that the reality stars was infected with the Ebola virus.

Dean sets the record straight about that to ET Canada.

"Everything is OK," he says. "All the tabloids are reading Ebola and it's not."

He explains that Tori is actually suffering from severe bronchitis, sinusitis and pneumonia.

"The show we're shooting is obviously very emotional," Dean says. "It's six days a week. It finally caught up with her and took its toll, so she has bronchitis, sinusitis and pneumonia and she's getting great care at the hospital."
