Tori Spelling faked Ebola: Had nervous breakdown after husband's cheating October 24, 2014 10:26 AM MST Tori Spelling was hospitalized after reportedly suffering a nervous breakdown amid husband Dean's cheating scandal. Tori Spelling Instagram Tori Spelling was hospitalized after suffering a nervous breakdown, TMZ reported Oct. 24. Spelling posted an Instagram photo from her hospital bed, where she appears to have an IV in her arm. "This sick in hospital I finally see how quickly life can take it all away from you," Tori wrote in the cryptic caption. "Sadly I've finally faced truth that 1 person will never be there 4 me." Spelling's hospitalization initially sparked false reports she was being quarantined after being infected with the Ebola virus. However, sources say the Ebola reports were merely a smokescreen to hide the truth, which is that Tori had a nervous breakdown after her husband, Dean McDermott, cheated on her. Insiders claim Spelling faked her illness and fueled the Ebola rumors herself to hide the fact that she's an emotional basket case because she and Dean are broke, their marriage is on the rocks and her entertainment career is over. Tori is also reportedly worried about McDermott's continuing battle with depression and alcoholism, as Dean has been skipping his Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. A friend is reportedly planning to stage an intervention for Tori, who needs psychological help for her own depression and emotional problems. Meanwhile, Dean, who hosts the reality TV competition "Chopped Canada," has spoken out, saying he is not the monster the press has made out to be. "I'm not a monster," McDermott told E! "I'm a human being and I messed up. I'm owning up to it and I'm getting help. But to label me a monster or evil is very hurtful." When Dean and Tori first started dating in 2006, he was still married to Mary Jo Eustace, while Spelling was married to Charlie Shanian. "You know, I'm not the first person to ever cheat on his wife," said McDermott, a father of five. Dean has admitted he cheated on Spelling with 28-year-old Emily Goodhand. He said he started the affair because he was in a bad emotional state. "The affair was more about how I was feeling about myself than having an affair," he said. As for Tori, McDermott said she's suffering from bronchitis, sinusitis and pneumonia. McDermott was with Spelling when she was admitted to the hospital. Dean and Spelling star on the Lifetime TV reality show, "True Tori."
