During an Apr. 9 couples counseling session, McDermott complained about infrequent sex he had with his wife. "We have four kids, so in the sex department there were ebbs and flows," he explained. "Is that safe to say?" Spelling disagreed, saying, "We had a great relationship and we had a great sex life."
"We would have sex once every two weeks," the Chopped Canada host argued. "It wasn't fantastic."
Spelling threw up her arms in defeat, but McDermott didn't understand why his honesty was so upsetting. "What? What did I say?" he asked. The therapist then told him, "Dean, your expectation of what a marriage is supposed to be like sexually—it's like a fairytale." The Mystery Girls star then broke down in tears, saying, "I can never give him enough sex. He's never going to be happy with just me."
"I'm insatiable," McDermott admitted. "Sex was an escape, just like drugs and alcohol."
