Tori Spelling’s holiday season is a bit complicated.
She and her estranged husband, Dean McDermott, have been fueling divorce rumors all year-long, and with the holidays right around the corner fans are curious how that will go down in the Spelling-McDermott home.
The ‘90210’ actress appeared on “Jeff Lewis Live” on SiriusXM on Thursday, December 2.
Of course, the topic of her marriage was the first order of business to handle, but show host Lewis, decided to tie his question up in a pretty little bow.
Lewis asked Spelling, “So holiday shopping, what are we getting Dean, anything?”
Lewis’ co-host sitting next to Spelling looked absolutely shocked by the question with her eyes opening wide.

The “True Tori” star took a moment to answer, but came back with, “Yes, of course the kids are getting him something.”
She put a lot of emphasis on the ‘of course’ portion of the sentence.
Lewis shot back, “Are you going to contribute or be like ‘f**k use your own money.’”
Spelling stated that she would be contributing to help her five children get a gift for their dad.
Not one to hold back, Lewis continued to press Spelling about the gift.
“Do you know what you’re going to get,” he quipped.
Having done this ‘interview thing’ for years, Spelling shot back, “What are you getting Gage?”
Tori hits back at questions about Dean
Gage Edward is Lewis’ ex-husband and the former couple share a five-year-old together, Monroe Christine Lewis.
A bit caught off-guard, the host replied, “Uh, no, no. Nothing.”
“You have to. Monroe has to get him something, because that’s how it works,” Spelling quipped. “The kids have to get their parents something. Hi, welcome to life.”
Not standing down, Lewis shot back at Spelling, “Why doesn’t he just buy something with all the child support I give him?”
Spelling broke down how gift giving from a small child goes.
“No, you don’t tell him. Monroe is going to want to buy him something, and you’re going to have to buy it and pick it out and wrap it and write a little card from her and that’s how it goes,” she said.
It’s clear Lewis’ motive was to try and get Spelling to discuss her marital woes amid all of the rumors, but the actress didn’t budge.
Tori won’t budge on questions about Dean
There’s been trouble in paradise for the couple of 15 years after McDermott cheated on Spelling nearly eight years ago.
People reported Spelling still has major “trust issues” and that the couple has “grown apart.”
“They have issues that are hard to remedy. And they don’t have the same relationship they once did,” the source says of Spelling and McDermott.
McDermott was noticeably absent from this year’s Christmas card.
