Tori Spelling Faces New Round Of Eating Disorder Concern

Actress and reality star Tori Spelling has sparked concern after appearing dangerously thin while out earlier this week in Los Angeles.

New reports have surfaced that she has dropped to 92 pounds and has largely stopped eating as a result of stress. Last February, Dean McDermott entered inpatient rehab for “mistakes” he made and to “become the husband and father my family deserves,” an apparent reference to cheating on his wife of seven years with a woman in Canada.

"She's extremely depressed right now and feels alone. She has always been jealous and insecure, but now her confidence is at an all-time low,” said a source to Radar Online.  "She feels like she did everything she could to keep Dean happy and attracted to her, but it wasn't enough."

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time that Spelling has faced rumors of an eating disorder. She denied being anorexic in 2009 and said a hectic schedule contributed to her thin frame. “I acknowledge that I look thin in photos. I get it,” she said. “Obviously I don’t want to lose any more weight, but people haven’t seen me pregnant in two and a half years. I’m eating healthy. I just have a crazy lifestyle.”

However, she admitted last year that she essentially starved herself in order to lose the baby weight she gained after having her fourth child, Finn. “I took off my weight the old-fashioned way. I like to call it the Just Keep Your Fucking Mouth Shut and Eat Air Diet,” said Spelling. “It's all the rage." The admission angered many people because she initially claimed to have lost the weight through swimming. Health experts also thought she was encouraging eating disorders.

The eating disorder rumors and McDermott’s rehab stint will all reportedly be part of their upcoming reality show True Tori. Airing for six episodes on Lifetime, the show will follow the couple around in “almost real-time” after the cheating scandal. An insider said that "there’s no telling how much drama there will be and how the show will pan out since they literally just started filming this morning.”
