The True Tori stars left California for the weekend and went on a " #roadTrip with the family!" After they arrived in Las Vegas, however, the couple left their four children at the hotel and went on a much-needed parents-only date to see Jane's Addiction perform at the Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas Saturday.
According to People, Spelling, 41, and McDermott, 48, "were being affectionate, rubbing each other's backs and genuinely enjoying themselves while singing almost every Jane's Addiction song out loud." During the concert, they hung out with Dana White, president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. The actress also took a selfie with her husband. "#datenight #janesaddiction Haven't done a concert date nite w/hubby since BK= #beforekids #howmamagothergrooveback," Spelling wrote on Instagram.
"So good to see my old friend #davenavarro 2nite," the actress added. "Amazing time!"
Meeting White was also a "dream come true" for McDermott, Spelling revealed.
After a night out on the town, the reality stars returned home to their four kids. Spelling posted a photo of her elder children holding a giant Hershey's bar and joked, "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas..."
To say that this has been Spelling and McDermott's most difficult year of marriage would be quite an understatement. In December 2013, Us Weekly revealed that McDermott had a brief affair with Emily Goodhand during a business trip to Canada. The actor later admitted to being unfaithful, and the next month, he entered rehab to deal with undisclosed "health and personal issues." Cameras began filming the couple months later, and it was revealed that McDermott had contemplated suicide and had also been suffering from alcoholism. While promoting the docuseries' second season on NBC's Today last week (in separate interviews, mind you), the couple explained why they've put their pain on television.
"I personally like doing it. For me, it works. It's individual. I know it's not for everyone. People keep saying, 'Why do you want your relationship playing out on TV?' I came from a family that didn't talk about emotions. We repressed things," Spelling said. "This was a vehicle for me to feel like a safe atmosphere where I could share. It's cathartic. It's therapy for me." McDermott no longer wants to be part of the show if Lifetime renews it for a third season. "I want some of my privacy back," he said. "I think I've shared too much of my soul and my demons with strangers...It's just not a good space for me."
McDermott added that his marriage is on the mend. "We are in a better place than ever. Our love is stronger. We're solid. We're communicating. We're actually having a fully functional relationship," he said. Spelling, for her part, explained that her husband had "come back" to the family "in a big way."
"The children are great and flourishing, and that's what's important," she added. "Our everything are the kids and that's what comes first, and when it's not about that anymore, then this all goes away."
