In a new clip from True Tori
, Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott have a disagreement over a baked potato that ends with them questioning why they're still together. Hey, it beats the usual drama
The two have had some pretty embarrassing tiffs in the past. For the season two premiere, Tori rejected Dean's attempt to console her after learning that her show Mystery Girls was canceled. And what about that cryptic Instagram Tori sent from the hospital?
Still, this tops them all. In the sneak peek, the couple's evening starts out pleasant enough with Tori making dinner for their four children. When cooking the baked potatoes takes a little too long for Dean's liking, he takes matters into his own hands.
"I'm only trying to help," said Dean, after re-cooking the potatoes using his own method.
When Dean's technique also comes up short, it opens up a discussion about how Tori felt belittled by Dean's lack of faith in her "potato-making skills."
After much back and forth, it finally leads Dean to ask Tori the question we've all been wondering:
"Why are you even with me?"
While she couldn't come up with an honest answer in the moment, Tori was later asked the same thing during a one-on-one session with a show producer.
"When there's children involved, you look at a relationship differently than you would if there were no children," Tori explains. "And I think every woman would agree with that."
And she's probably right. But let's not forget the real victim here -- that poor half baked potato.
Earlier this month Dean vented to ET Canada's Cheryl Hickey about his negative reputation after cheating on Tori, insisting, "I'm not a monster. I'm a human being and I messed up."
"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."
There seem to be no innocent parties in this ongoing saga, as Tori admitted to sleeping with Dean the first night they met when each were married to different people. Dean was married to his first wife, Mary Jane Eustace, while Tori was still with her first husband, Charlie Shanian. Tori and Dean met on the set of the Lifetime TV movie Mind Over Murder in July 2005.
