Dean McDermott is about to welcome his sixth child in the world, courtesy of Tori Spelling, and he was certainly eager to celebrate this momentous occasion. But a February 11 baby shower for him and Tori apparently was too over-the-top, both in its execution and in its public display of excess, according to the Daily Mail. That’s because tabloid reports of the lavish event set off Dean’s ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace.

The baby shower, held in the main restaurant of the posh Bel-Air Hotel, was hosted by Tori’s mother, Candy, the widow of the late
