Over the past month, we’ve watched Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott’s PDA war play out.

First, he stepped out with Lily Calo, the two of them making plenty of public appearances.

More recently, Tori has been out locking lips and holding hands with Ryan Cramer.

Dean believes that it’s no coincidence that Tori’s affectionate outings are so aggressively public.

A new report from Us Weekly says that Dean McDermott isn’t too happy with Tori Spelling’s public dating.

“He thinks Tori’s doing this for attention,” an insider dished.

That is a bold accusation, considering that Dean himself was the first to made deliberate public appearances including PDA.

So how are Tori and Dean getting along these days? They’re exes — but they also share five children.

“They’re on fairly icy terms right now,” the source then illuminated.

“But,” the insider added, Tori and Dean are still “trying to stay cordial.”

But remaining cordial isn’t as easy as chocolate-covered cherries make it look. Not when you’re going through a very public split.

One of the complicating factors of their breakup is that their “divorce” isn’t official.

That is to say that, even though Dean announced the end of their marriage in June, we’re well into November without any evidence of a divorce filing. Not from Dean, and not from Tori.

There could be any number of reasons for which Tori and Dean haven’t begun the legal process of ending their marriage.

Divorce is a lengthy, stressful, and complex legal mechanism. These two have nearly two decades of shared finances and property. Not to mention five kids.

There may be one very practical reason for which they haven’t filed just yet.

Divorce is pretty dang expensive. We don’t just mean the division of property, but that too.

It’s possible that there are financial hurdles that Tori and Dean need to face before they can hash things out in court. Or maybe they want to sort out as much as possible before they make any legal filings. Mediation is great!

A couple of years ago, reports said that they were both too broke to afford a divorce. They ended up having months of relative happiness and peace after they eventually reconciled.

But if that part of the pattern doesn’t repeat itself, one of them may be at an advantage.

Candy Spelling has said that she plans to help her daughter during this time. If she’s paying the bills for the divorce attorney, which is definitely still in “if” territory, Dean could be in trouble.

Tori and Dean’s financial struggles have caused a lot of issues during their marriage. Now it might cause issues for one more than the other amidst their split.

As for Dean’s alleged thoughts (and he has not shared them publicly, if they are his genuine thoughts) … it’s hard to say what we think.

Reports say that Dean resented Tori for using their previous split for attention. So maybe he really does see Tori’s dates as nothing but a stunt.

But … Tori was getting attention before these dates. In fact, Dean was the one who was barely in headlines before his public PDA.
