Tori Spelling Celebrates 41st Birthday and Dean is Nowhere to Be Found (PHOTOS)

At this time 12 months ago, Tori Spelling was celebrating her milestone 40th birthday on a Mexican beach with husband, Dean McDermott, and their 4 young kiddies. She looked well rested and radiant. Fast forward to yesterday, when the actress turned 41, and you'll see things have changed a lot. She still looks fresh and fantastic -- which is a mystery given the many marriage woes she's dealt with recently. But her estranged hubby was nowhere to be found when she blew out her birthday candles. And Tori didn't let that keep her from celebrating her life.

The Mystery Girls star posted 3 photos on Instagram to show us how her day was shaping up. She captioned the first, "My first bday celebration" and posed with 6-year-old Liam and a plate of candled goodies:

She followed up with a pic of Liam and 5-year-old Stella and wrote: "A birthday donut from my babes... #happymama"

Tori's third and final snap from her big day gives us a glimpse into another aspect of life that is holding her head up above water these days: her job. Rumor has it Dean is in Canada and wasn't able to help her celebrate, but Tori's cast mates helped pick up the slack:

Tori captioned this photo: "I'm a lucky lady. Blessed w/ an incredible work family at #mysterygirls Felt so loved & celebrated while getting 2do what I am passionate about! #LoveMyJob"

I know obligations come up and we can't always help having to travel for work or personal reasons, but considering how dedicated Dean claims he is to making their marriage work after he cheated on her, you'd think he would have managed it so he could be there for Tori on her birthday. I hope he has a good excuse for missing it and that he gets her a gift that is slightly more meaningful than the lingerie he bought her for their anniversary.

Do you think Dean's absence from Tori's birthday spells the beginning of the end for this couple?

would you blame him. She never gives him a kind word, in their sessions, he made a mistake get over it. She seems to be happy with her kids, and she doesn't care if he around. She did all the sessions so she would make money, and get people to feel sorry for her. Betty F

Betty Fortune, Dean made a mistake, are you kidding with that comment? He cheated on her numerous times, that is not something to take lightly!! Its not like he forgot to pay a parking ticket, he had sex with other women while married to her. She needs to dump him and love herself not to settle for such a loser

Come on you people are trying to say you didn't know Dean went to Canada, do you think we're stupid, it's pretty obvious they need the money, why would they air his dirty laundry on national TV? Sandie

He's a cad but I don't know what she expected. He cheated on his last wife with her...

I don't know why anyone is surprised. He had a wife and child and she had a husband when they began their own affair.

Not to be picky but sTori posts " my first Bday". Wth does that mean? Is she giving us a "Clue"?? As in her First Bday as a Single Mom? Or her first Bday scamming the public on national TV? Her first Bday she is playing martyr for ratings? Tori isn't going to forgive Deano. Deano will never be able to regain her trust. It is an ugly situation involving two insecure self absorbed egos which are battling each other on who is more screwed up or who is sicker emotionally. They are competing for the title of the most jacked over spouses.

Humm.. Wouldn't that be Mary Jo & Chris or whatever his name was? The first X Mr. Spelling??
