Tori Spelling has confirmed that her husband Dean McDermott is in fact quitting their reality TV show True Tori. She has also confirmed, however, that this doesn't indicate the end of the show. Tori has vowed she will stay on with True Tori even after Dean makes his exit.

The former Beverly Hills, 90210 star visited Meredith Vieira on The Meredith Vieira Show recently. The episode aired the day before Thanksgiving. She told Vieira she stands by her decision to keep her 'personal life public.'

"We let it all hang out," Tori said. "I don't [think I reveal too much] because if everything hadn't been made as public as it was, I would've chosen to deal with this privately with my husband."

"We're talking about the affair that my husband had almost a year ago. I chose to deal with it because it was my journey, it was my truth. Women everywhere go through this and I wanted to put it out there, Spelling added, addressing Meredith Vieira's audience.

Tori Spelling finds it helpful to air her dirty laundry.

"It's completely cathartic for me and it's very individual," she said of sharing her recent struggles. "I know everyone has an opinion about me putting my life and relationship out there, and it's something… I needed that. I felt like I didn't have a voice for so long."

Dean McDermott, on the other hand, doesn't find it helpful at all.

"I can’t keep opening a vein, opening my soul and sharing my feelings and thoughts and demons with the world. I don't watch it. I can't. It’s really difficult. I can't do it anymore, for my soul," he said a few weeks ago.

Will True Tori draw the viewers it has once Dean McDermott leaves the show? After all, they're likely tuning in to watch things transpire between Dean and Tori--not just Tori Spelling on her own. Could his leaving signify the beginning of the end of True Tori?
