It looked like things might be over for Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott after he was caught cheating in 2013.
The star had an affair with Emily Goodhand while on location shooting Chopped Canada and the cheating scandal was documented on their Lifetime series True Tori.
During a therapy session on the show, Spelling, 49, cried out: ‘I can never give him enough sex!’
Following the cheating scandal, Dean checked into rehab in early 2014 to ‘address some health and personal issues.’
It appeared to be history repeating itself after the pair, who got married in 2006, first got together through an affair while married to other people as they filmed a television movie together in Canada.

He continued: ‘It was about inadequacies with myself. I felt so bad about myself, I felt like a piece of s***, I needed to do that to feel some kind of power.’
In 2021, it was reported that Tori still had ‘major trust issues’ but was focused on her five children, Liam, 15, Stella, 14, Hattie, 11, Finn, 10, and Beau, five.
Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade: Stayed together after the basketball legend fathered a child with another woman
Painful moment: Gabrielle Union says her soul was ‘shattered’ when she learned now-husband Dwyane Wade got another woman pregnant when they were on a break
Focus on love: Union was struggling to conceive at the time, but the pair moved forward and welcomed their own child in 2018
Gabrielle Union revealed that her soul was ‘shattered’ when she learned now-husband Dwyane Wade got another woman pregnant while Union, 50, was going through IVF treatments to try and struggling to conceive.
The couple began dating in 2008 and married in 2014. But they split in 2013, which is when the NBA star, 41, fathered son Xavier with his ‘longtime friend’ Aja Metoyer.
At the time, Wade was already dad to Zaire, 18 and Zaya, 12, and was legal guardian to his nephew, Dahveon, 18.
Though the couple was ‘doing much better’ when he revealed his secret child to Union, the Bring It On actress was heartbroken by the news.
She stated in her memoir, You Got Something Stronger: ‘In 2013, before we were married, Dwyane had a baby with another woman. It should go without saying that we were not in a good place at the time that child was conceived.’
‘To say I was devastated is to pick a word on a low shelf for convenience,’ the actress explained in her memoir,. ‘There are people—strangers I will never meet—who have been upset that I have not previously talked about that trauma. I have not had words, and even after untold amounts of therapy I am not sure I have them now.’
The actress was particularly hurt given she had suffered multiple miscarriages while trying to conceive.
‘The experience of Dwyane having a baby so easily—while I was unable to—left my soul not just broken into pieces, but shattered into fine dust scattering in the wind,’ she wrote.
‘We gathered what we could to slowly remake me into something new. There was no way to disguise where I’d been glued back together.’
Though the pair were ready to pick up the pieces, Union admitted that her ‘feelings weren’t originating from a healthy place,’ largely because of her own struggles getting pregnant.
‘So much of what made the decision so difficult was that if I didn’t submit to a surrogacy, then I was convinced I needed to let Dwyane go,’ she confessed. ‘Even if he didn’t want to, I had to let him find someone who could give him what he wanted.’
After some reflection, Union began to research surrogacy options. She and Wade married in 2014 and would welcome daughter Kaavia four years later.

I apologize to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be,’ Timberlake said.

‘I would always say to myself “don’t risk your job” and I knew there was a huge risk involved if I got involved with this man… That night we just really hit it off. It was the first time, we were just locked into each other all night conversation wise. We just connected. People noticed it.’

Rumors that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith had been around for years before Jada Pinkett-Smith admitted to having an affair with singer August Alsina in 2020.
Her admittance about the fling confirmed the fact she and husband Will had an open relationship during a brief private break in their marriage.
The couple made headlines when they addressed Jada’s affair with August, 30, on her candid talk show Red Table Talk.
Jada, 51, began explaining the couple met August through their son Jaden, 24, and recalled the singer, who would have been 23 at the time, was ‘really sick’ (as he battled a genetic liver disease.)
Jada said: ‘And it all started with him just needing some help, me wanting to help his health, his mental state… you and I were going through a very difficult time.’
After Jada’s confession, Will admitted: ‘I was done with you,’ while Jada added that they decided to separate for a ‘period of time’.
‘And then what did you do, Jada?’ Will asked, urging his wife to keep talking.
‘As time went on, I got into a different type of entanglement with August,’ Jada explained.
The mother-of-two went on to respond to August’s claim that Will gave her ‘permission’ to have an affair.
When Will, 54, pushed Jada to clarify what she meant by ‘entanglement’ she responded, ‘It was a relationship, absolutely.’
Jada continued: ‘I was in a lot of pain, and I was very broken. In the process of that relationship I definitely realized that you can’t find happiness outside yourself.’
She denied August’s claim that Will had given his blessing over the affair and claimed they were separated at the time.
News of the affair sent shockwaves through the world with many turning to Will to see how the movie star would react. Curiously, Jada had initially denied August’s claims they were an item.

He explained that the couple separated after Will threw Jada an over-the-top birthday 40th bash in 2012.
While Will and Jada would eventually reconcile, he did recently reveal in an interview with GQ that they no longer practice monogamy.
Bill and Hillary Clinton: Former President famously had a fling with a White House intern
Hillary Clinton’s 40-year marriage to former President Bill Clinton managed to survive the massive White House sex scandal from 1997 (pictured in 2022)
The politician originally denied having an ‘inappropriate relationship’ on nine occasions with former intern Monica Lewinsky (pictured in 2023)
Hillary Clinton’s 40-year marriage to former President Bill Clinton, 76, managed to survive the massive White House sex scandal from 1997.
The politician originally denied having an ‘inappropriate relationship’ on nine occasions with former intern Monica Lewinsky.
One of America’s biggest ever political scandals started when Paula Jones, a former Arkansas civil servant, sued Clinton for sexual harassment in 1994.
She claimed that while he was governor of the state, he had sexually propositioned her and exposed himself in a hotel room.
Trying to show a pattern of behavior by Clinton, Jones’s lawyers summoned to court other women who had worked for him whom they suspected he’d had affairs with — including Lewinsky.
He denied under oath ever having ‘sexual relations’ with Monica. It was a lie she unwittingly exposed when she confided to friend and colleague Tripp how she had started having an affair with the president while working as a White House intern.
Tripp secretly recorded their conversations and passed them to Kenneth Starr, a prosecutor who was investigating Clinton over an unrelated property deal called Whitewater.
She also revealed the existence of a navy blue dress Lewinsky owned which Clinton had stained. Tripp convinced her friend not to have it dry-cleaned.
Starr obtained permission to expand his investigation to cover the Clinton-Lewinsky relationship — a fatal move for the president.
Clinton, who went on national TV to again deny any affair with Lewinsky, was duly impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice, although he was later acquitted by the U.S. Senate.
In the process, Starr’s report described in graphic, almost pornographic, detail his relationship with Lewinsky.
The affair lasted from 1995 to 1997, starting when Lewinsky was a 22-year-old intern and Clinton a 49-year-old president whose daughter Chelsea wasn’t much younger than Monica.
Hillary, 76, stood by her husband’s side through the scandal, and the pair were able to move forward – despite the constant mention of the scandal in pop culture.
