Already the veteran of one pseudo-reality series, So noTORIous, Tori Spelling and her husband Dean McDermott will be starring in a new Oxygen network reality show, Tori & Dean: Inn Love, where they will be running their own bed-and-breakfast in Southern California’s wine country (which was purchased with her inheritance from her father, Aaron Spelling. Both the show and their son (whose middle name will be Aaron for his grandfather) will debut in late March. Tori said, "We are still newlyweds – with a baby on the way. It’s Newlyweds, Part Two."
The show will include her pregnancy, and according to Oxygen’s president of programming and marketing, Deborah Beece, "the intimate final episode [will] coincide with the baby’s birth," but don’t look forward to seeing Tori give birth. Tori said, "I don’t think we’re going to film the actual birth."
What can we expect from the show? Tori says it will be funny, "We are actors, and this is reality, but part of my thing is I kind of like to put a little humor into everything." Why run a B&B? Tori said, "I just have really good style, so I thought I could spruce up the B&B." Producer Randy Burbato said that Tori and Dean, "may be actors, but they’re also very entrepreneurial. They wanted to create a real business."
Reality shows focusing on couples’ relationships usually don’t end well. So far, at least five Hollywood couples who have starred in reality shows have ended their marriages, including Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica (Jessica Simpson & Nick Lachey), Britney & Kevin: Chaotic (Britney Spears & Kevin Federline), Being Bobby Brown (Bobby Brown & Whitney Houston), ‘Til Death Do Us Part: Carmen + Dave (Carmen Electra & Dave Navarro), and Meet the Barkers (Travis Barker & Shanna Moakler).
But Dean said, "We’re going to be the exception, not the rule."
