Tori Spelling Writes Totally Sappy Love Letter to Husband Dean McDermott


tori spelling dean mcdermott and kidsTori Spelling loves hubby Dean McDermott -- even if sometimes, he has silly slip-ups, like getting into motorcycle accidents or tweeting photos of her breasts. In fact, she loves him so much that recently, she wrote him a mushy, gushy message to Dean on her blog, entitled, "A Love Letter to My Soul Mate." Aaawwwwwwww!!! 

These two are really so damn cute together, it's hard not to get a little misty reading just the title of her "ediTORIal." The letter itself? Waterworks-triggering material.

A few of my favorite parts:

Dean ... I've known you my whole life. But only in my heart. I would dream of you for so long. So many represented you. My dad. Every Ken doll I ever played with. Every prince in every Disney cartoon. The lead character in every John Hughes film. Not one guy I ever dated. ... It took me 32 years to find you. But only after I found me could I find you ... You've given me the greatest gift I can ever know. The gift of motherhood.

Ugh, I am such a teary-eyed mess reading this! Who hasn't  been there? Seen the guy of your dreams in so many different places ... looked for him, even while you were looking for yourself? And maybe I'm also majorly sentimental, because, like Tori, I once wrote a letter to my soul mate, a little over five years ago, in fact. I just hadn't met him yet. I knew I was ready to meet my "One," so I kinda put a call out to the Universe, by writing the letter to "the love of my life," a guy whose name I did not yet know. Here's some of what I wrote ...

I'm sick of waiting and wishing and fantasizing and theorizing and dating doh-doh-heads ... All I hope for... a lot of laughter, from you, from me, caused by both of us. Encouragement, trust, and respect would all be cool, too. ...  I can do this whole single thing; in fact, I have it down pretty well. ... I do, however, want to have a companion, a confidante, a Clyde to my Bonnie, a Noah to my Allie. You're him, but it sucks that you're being so damn elusive.

I admit, it was sentimental, Bridget Jones-y, and above all, hopelessly romantic of me to write that letter, but IT WORKED! Almost exactly a month after I wrote the letter, I met my soul mate, my boyfriend of almost five years, the guy I want to spend the rest of my life with.

In Tori's case, acknowledging her inner hopeless romantic to Dean -- and yes, the entire world! -- was very brave. I give her major props for it. She's proud of the love they've found -- wants to shout it from the rooftops, even! -- and who could blame any woman in love for wanting to do that? Plus, I'm sure Tori would agree with me -- putting yourself out there (by writing a letter, a blog post, even a Post-It) is key to finding and cherishing love.  

Would you or have you ever written a letter like these to the love of your life or the one-day love of your life?

I'm not a cheeseball. And these sort of things make me laugh uncontrollably. I understand I am a minority in this respect, but seriously gag me with a flippin spoon.

nonmember avatar Liz were married when we met, but that still didn't stop us from pursuing a relationship, which is how I knew you were the one. I love you unconditionally and I hope you feel the same about me. Because to be honest, I'm very insecure you'll find someone to replace me, and then I'll have to do a reality TV show about being a single mother. I guess that would make me the new Kate Plus 8 (minus 5). It took me 32 years to accept I was a home-wrecker, and then move in on a married man, but I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you for making me a mother, and here's to hoping a have a better relationship with our children than my mom and I did! I look forward to spending the rest of my life with you! No, seriously, please don't leave me.

I like to write my husband erotic love letters, describing in great detail all the things he does to me that I love, the things I enjoy doing to him, and all the things I'd like to try next. It works wonders :)

I can't get past the fact that Spelling got involved with the guy while he was still married. He already has a couple of kids who no longer live anywhere near him. I just can't see it as being beautiful or about love - what happened to his love for his kids? Why wasn't the woman he first loved and proposed to the love of his life?

I don't think it's a coincidence that Spelling is being super-romantic and talking about soul mates. That kind of thinking makes it easier to hurt the people around you and ignore the reality of what you're doing when you sleep with a married guy with kids. It would have been better for everyone if Spelling understood that finding the right guy is about finding one of the people you could build a life with and then making the commitment and following through on it.

I don't really think the relationship will last either. Most second marriages end in divorce, especially if one of the people had kids already. Getting involved with a guy who would cheat on his wife when the going gets rough is probably a bad idea, too. Putting their life on TV is just the last nail in the coffin.
