The 'Beverly Hills 90210' actress admitted she hid Dean McDermott's temper from viewers by cutting damaging footage because she didn't want to ruin the idea of them as "America's sweetheart couple".

Speaking about the show, 'Tori and Dean', she said: "I was controlling it as best I could. I was being real, but I knew not to let it go to a certain place. I knew Dean had a temper, and I didn't want that on camera, because that didn't serve us well. We were like America's sweetheart couple. Why would I do that? There were some things where I'd be like, 'You guys have to cut that out.'"

And Tori admitted that she saw a different side of Dean when they filmed the show.

She said: "I was the executive producer. I looked at every edit. I basically protected our relationship through that. At first, it was fine, but it was a new relationship for us. All of a sudden, we got pregnant, and then I saw a different side of him. Not that I didn't love him. But I thought, I didn't sign up for this. Wait, you didn't show me this. He said, 'If I had shown you that side, you wouldn't have been with me.' That's not fair."

However, Tori later made the reality TV show 'True Tori' about their marriage in the aftermath of Dean's affair insisting she "didn't have a choice" because she always lived her life in the public eye.

Explaining her decision, she told Lena Dunham in an interview for "I didn't know what to do. This wasn't going away. Everyone said, 'This happens all the time. Look at all the A-list celebrities. They used to complain about it. Then they go on and do a big movie and it just goes away.' That's not my life. That's not my relationship with my fans. I'm not the type that can just go from talking about everything and then it's like, 'No personal questions,' the next time I do something."
