Could Dean McDermott be any more predictable? Trotting out the impression management cliches of cheaters everywhere, Dean tells the press he will “not be defined” by his cheating and “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.”
The self-pity card seems to be McDermott’s preferred mindfuckery.
“You know, I’m not the first person to ever cheat on his wife.”
So, hey, stop singling him out! Why is everyone picking on him? You’re only making an issue of out this because he’s Dean McDermott.
“The affair was more about how I was feeling about myself than having an affair.”
The bank robbery was more about I was feeling about myself than a bank robbery. See, it’s not what you do, it’s how you feel about it. Were you in a dark place? Suffering from low self-esteem? Broken? Go hurt some people and steal their shit. Maybe that will lift your spirits! What matters here is YOU and your feelings…. for yourself.
Meanwhile, self-pity seems to be a contagion in the McDermott/Spelling household. Tori Spelling, surviving her imaginary pregnancy and Ebola outbreak, wrote on Instagram:
“This sick in hospital I finally see how quickly life can take it all awayfrm you. We all need 2 step up frm inside& go 4 it! W/our friends by our side. Sadly I’ve finally faced truth that 1 person will never be there 4 me #TrueTori“
I can’t figure out what’s worse. The hashtag plugging her show? The mawkish non sequitors? The dumb teaser? (Oh! Who is the 1 person? I can’t possibly guess!) Or just the pure stupidity — LIFE can take it all away from you? No, Tori, I think you’re referring to DEATH.
Dlisted, once again, hits the snark out of the park deconstructing her “nervous breakdown.”
Get better soon, Tori.
