Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott celebrate a fifth season on Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood.
Last season we watched them as they balanced and juggled two growing careers and raised Liam and Stella under the Hollywood microscope.
We witnessed Tori's businesses expanding; our best-selling author released a second book, Mommywood, sold her HSN jewelry line and launched Little Maven by Tori Spelling, a clothing line designed for her children.
We also had a multitude of party celebrations, a winter wonderland, a commitment ceremony for the Guncles, and the children's birthday parties.
The full hour format that was showcased in season three, has allowed viewers to get an in-depth look into Tori and Dean's lives. Season Five will be no different.
Is the Hollywood stress putting pressure on the couple's relationship? Does motherhood prevent Tori from missing some Hollywood opportunities? Do Dean's hobbies take away from the family? Is this economy putting stress on the family?
A cross-country trip, another business venture highlight the season as we get a first hand look into how Tori and Dean make this all work.
This season is packed with fun-filled entertainment as the family continues to settle into their own and create some normalcy in their "fishbowl" lives.
Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott created the series and executive produce the series along with Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato of World of Wonder Productions. Richard Courtney and Robert Sizemore serve as co-executive producers.
