Jezebel has a post on their site which makes a really good argument that Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott faked their most recent cheating scandal to land another reality show. They list seven reasons why they believe the scandal has been faked, but I want to focus on two of them because they are the most strong.
They cite Tori's relationship with US Weekly and how the US Weekly and Tori's scandal don't really fit together in that relationship. US Weekly was the first to report about the most recent scandal. Other tabloids have reported other times that Dean has cheated and I had a blind about one of the times he cheated, but no one other than US Weekly caught this new scandal in their net. The thing is US Weekly has paid for and featured Tori on plenty of covers and stories, so why would they release the story about the scandal, and do so on Christmas Eve when it would get the most attention in a very quiet time for breaking gossip stories?
Why would Tori then give US Weekly her first exclusive interview after the scandal?Wouldn't she hate the magazine after what they did to her and her family? Not if it wasn't real in the first place. This kind of accusation puts US Weekly in a very awkward spot. Were they complicit in all of this? How come they didn't provide a photo of the alleged person who gave them the story? The only Emily Goodhand in Canada found on social media has denied being the Emily Goodhand who had sex with Dean.
This brings me to the other great point that Jezebel made. How is it that a 28 year old woman who had sex with a married Dean McDermott has no social media presence. No LinkedIn. No Twitter. No Facebook. No nothing. That just doesn't seem likely. How come no other tabloid has been able to locate her?
Now, a point of my own. Amber Goodhand is a reporter for Radar. That is the only Goodhand I have ever heard of, but granted, you might know some. Amber is also from Canada. Do you think that name was chosen as a dig at Radar? I think it is kind of strange that the last name and nationality of the person who had sex with Dean shares the same last name and nationality as a reporter for Radar, and that the name is really uncommon.
