The former Beverly Hills, 90210 star hit headlines on Thursday (26Dec13) after editors at Us Weekly magazine published a cover story accusing Canadian actor MCDermott of cheating on his wife of seven years.
In the article, a woman named Emily Goodhand revealed all about a steamy encounter she claimed to have enjoyed with the 47 year old at his suite at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto on 6 December (13), when MCDermott was promoting the Tv series Chopped Canada, of which he is a host.
Goodhand, 28, tells the magazine, "He told me he and Tori had a sexless marriage... I believed him."
Representatives for MCDermott and Spelling, 40, have declined to comment on the report, and the mother of four appeared to be ignoring the rumours about the state of their relationship on Thursday by sharing a Twitter.com link to her blog, where she had posted a cute Christmas picture of her kids with Santa, with 16-month-old Finn crying as the shot is taken.
In the accompanying post, Spelling writes, "I had to share our annual Santa photo with all of you! How cute do my babes look?!
"Stella looks like she's enjoying her visit with Santa, but Liam, Hattie and Finn all have pretty funny expressions on their faces. How would you caption this pic of the MCDermott brood with Mr. Claus?
"Hope you're all having a very Merry Christmas with the ones you love!"
The latest blog post was uploaded hours after Spelling revealed how she was spending the Christmas holiday, writing: "As another year comes to a close, I can't help but feel so grateful for all of my blessings. My beautiful family, my amazing friends, and of course, all of you!
"We're spending the day together - cuddling, cooking, baking, unwrapping gifts, eating, watching movies and counting our blessings..."
