Tori Spelling was released from a “secret” six day hospital stay on Saturday and is back at work on her reality show True Tori. The hospitalization comes on the heels of the revelation of husband Dean McDermott’s affair in December.
True Tori debuted on April 22, and Spelling claims her reasons for yet again returning to reality TV were to “set the record straight” about her family. “I wanted to take a moment to address what’s been going on in my life over the last several months. Our family has been going through an incredibly difficult and trying time, and the story of what I’ve been going through has been told by everyone except for me” said Spelling.
While her much publicized “secret” hospital stay reeks of publicity stunt, the actress reportedly appears frail and weak, though she has returned to filming her show, and may have been filming throughout her stay.
Although Spelling and McDermott have publicly acknowledged their marriage issues, McDermott appeared very concerned for Spelling and was seen escorting her out on Saturday. “He would arrive by 10am and didn’t leave until 8 most nights. He seemed very stressed out and worried. He would bring food and often only left Tori to go outside to catch some air or make a phone call” said one observer.
The tried and true Hollywood excuse of “exhaustion” is constantly utilized when celebrities are hospitalized (likely for reasons other than being tired), however if it ends up being used in Spelling’s case, it might actually be true. She not only has been filming her reality series, but also recently came out with her memoir Spelling It Like It Is.

Spelling is also slated to star in the upcoming ABC Family Comedy Mystery Girls with Jennie Garth. The show premieres in June, and hopefully Spelling will be recovered enough from her mysterious illness so she can reap the rewards of all that hustle.
