Spelling and McDermott were both married to other people when they met filming “Mind Over Matter” in July 2005.

“It was love at first sight. I fell so hard … Then I noticed he had a wedding ring. And — oh, yeah — I had a husband too,” Spelling wrote in her 2009 memoir “sTORI Telling.” “It was fun to flirt, but I knew nothing would happen … But: Dean and I went to a bar after dinner. And we spent the night at the Cartier Place.

“The following day when I woke up next to Dean, I had no regrets. Something was really wrong with my marriage. Not only because I slept with this guy — though that certainly wasn’t a positive sign — but because I didn’t regret it.”

They both divorced their respective spouses and married in May 2006, not even a month after each of their divorces were finalized.
