Amid the talk surrounding Dean’s confessions, Tori “Tori is a little hurt and upset by Dean’s recent tell-all type of interview,” an insider told  earlier in November. “[She] recognizes that Dean spoke about her in a relatively positive light, but she feels protective over her children. Especially Stella, who is old enough to know what’s going on and reads and hears about these types of things.”

However, the source added, she’s attempting to make the best of things moving forward.  “Tori is trying to stay positive and keep things afloat for her family and not let Dean’s words impact her too much,” they reportedly told the outlet.

Dean’s interview didn’t shy away from accountability — he claims his binge drinking caused a lot of the drama that broke down the marriage. “I took something that was really beautiful, and I just tore it down year after year, day after day,” he .

“Alcohol made me feel good enough,” he continued. “I started feeling good enough until it got to a point where it didn’t — it ended up in isolation. It ended up with me drinking a fifth of tequila every night, seven days a week, and a handful of narcos by myself with a beautiful family in the other room. That’s what it led to, and that’s what led to the brokenness and to what happened between me and Tori.”
