I hear ya sisterOriginally Posted by Coco46;3508861;
Sometimes I feel like an old fart cause I go around saying, "They just don't make TV shows like they used to", I was so excited when I heard about the new 90210, but when the first ep aired, I was thinking it was just wrong, wrong, wrong. The whole Annie & adopted brother move to LA w/ parents to live w/ a rich grandmother??? WTH, it should be a more realistic story (like the original when Brandon & Brenda move w/ parents into a normal (non mansion home) and then let all the drama of the 2 new kids (trying to fit in) unfold at WBHS. It was a good formula, they should have used that in the 2.0 version of 90210.
I also agree Dean's a good dad, but he's got such a cushy life that Tori provides, and Patsy to boot. He's be a D-bag if he wasn't a good dad. I do think his motorcycle racing is selfish hobby cause he needs to not put himself in danger for those kids sake.
As far as what Tori sees in him, I think she sees a guy who's better looking than all her other boyfriends/1st husband, so theres the lust factor & Dean "gets" her like her close friends get her & are not afraid to talk like a truck driver/sailor. Tori's 1st husband was uber uptight & the guy lived in denial, he is a religious "type", he thought Tori being herself (the crass part) was unaccetable for someone he was with, I mean real uptight. Tori married him cause she thought she needed to be w/ an "opposite" type, since she had dated huge d-bags in the past (dishonorable type of men who did things like steal her money and slam her looks to her face, etc).
You know, last week I was telling my sister (who's a big reality tv fan like me) that she should watch Tori & Dean's show, but she refuses cause she sees them as marriage wreckers. I tried to explain to her that I read Tori's side of things, and that honestly, we can't judge these people; and I find Tori to be a very open person (she spares no details in her books), and I believe she was in a marriage w/ a person who was wrong for her, I believe her when she said she felt a connection w/ Dean, and I believe her when she said she never cheated on anyone before, that this was a complicated thing. Now on Dean's end, I'm not as sure. I read in her 2nd book that Dean felt his ex wife was sort of a real mature type (refined) and that he never saw himself like her, he felt unrefined next to her,something like that. However, I could have sworn a few years ago, I read something from Dean's ex saying that they were about to adopt a daughter, and so his ex was shocked by his actions. People who are about to adopt are generally not in a bad place in their marriage,so unless she was forcing him to adopt, I just don't see it.
