Tori Spelling is displeased with her estranged husband Dean McDermott’s public revelations about his struggles with alcoholism and substance abuse prior to their split.

“Tori is a little hurt and upset by Dean’s recent tell-all type of interview,” a source told “Entertainment Tonight” Thursday.

In a sit-down with the Daily Mail, the former “Chopped Canada” host shared not only how his alcohol-fueled rages left his family “petrified” but also how he had attempted suicide by taking too many sleeping pills.

“[Tori] recognizes that Dean spoke about her in a relatively positive light, but she feels protective over her children,” the insider explained.

“Especially Stella, who is old enough to know what’s going on and reads and hears about these types of things.”

The “Beverly Hills, 90210” star, 50, and McDermott, 57, share Liam, 16, Stella, 15, Hattie, 12, Finn, 11, and Beau, 6.

The “Due South” actor is also the father of Jack, 24, from his first marriage to Mary Jo Eustace.

“Tori is trying to stay positive and keep things afloat for her family and not let Dean’s words impact her too much,” the source said.

McDermott blamed himself for the demise of his 17-year marriage to Spelling and admitted he would spend the rest of his life working to regain the trust of his family — whom he hasn’t seen in five months.

“I took something that was really beautiful, and I just tore it down year after year, day after day,” he said.

McDermott spent 40 days in a California rehab facility that Spelling had found for him and currently resides in a sober home with eight other men.

He also admitted that he posted his separation announcement on Instagram in June when he was high and inebriated, which is why he deleted it once he sobered up.

“It wasn’t the right way to do it, but it got people’s attention. The people I needed it to. It fell in the ears of people I wanted it to fall into,” he said.

He spent the summer in rehab and now lives in a sober home.

“I was so full of shame, and it was such a horrible idea. And then my kids were really, really hurt.”

After the Daily Mail published part one of the interview, Spelling found solace in McDonald’s beloved McRib.

“The comfort of an old friend returns just when you need them the most,” she wrote on her Instagram Story Wednesday above an image of the fast food sandwich’s box.
