FYI- Tuesday I went out for a dirt bike ride with my friends, I ended smashing my chest into my bars as I went over the front of the bike. about 19 hours ago via Echofon
It was a freak accident. We still can't figure out what happened. None the less, I have a collapsed lung and bad bruising on my right side. about 19 hours ago via Echofon
# Oh, and 3 stitches in my right butt cheek where a stone got imbedded. Let's just say, I won't be dirt biking anymore. about 19 hours ago via Echofon
This makes for McDermott's second accident on a bike this year. Â McDermott has a good support system from his family though, including wife Tori Spelling. Â Just several months ago Dean and Tori renewed their wedding vows in Beverly Hills. The couple who starred in their own reality TV shows, "Torie & Dean: Inn Love" and "Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood" have been married since May of 2006 when they eloped to the Fiji Islands. Together they have two children, Liam age 3 and Stella age 2.
Sounds like Dean McDermott will be ok despite this recent accident. Great news for Dean, Tori and family that he's on the road to recovery after the scare.
