Now that the celebrity nude photo hacker is behind bars, Tori Spelling probably thought she was safe from topless pictures being posted online. But accidents do happen -- even when your loving husband is just trying to post pictures of your adorable children! On Thursday, Dean McDermott posted to Twitter what he thought was just a cute shot of his and Tori's 4-year-old son Liam... without noticing that his wife's bare boobs were showcased prominently in the background!
The pic -- which Dean, 45, has since deleted from his Twitter account (you can see the safe-for-work version above) -- is part of a series of goofy cell-phone pics that Dean was taking with Liam. The father and son were putting kitchen-themed stickers on their heads, which Dean then uploaded with captions like "pothead" (for a cooking pot) and "doughhead" (for a rolling pin).
The accidentally scandalous shot shows Liam with the rolling-pin sticker on his forehead. He's sitting on a bed, and if you look twice, you can see a naked woman reclining under the sheets behind him. Except you can only see her from the neck down and the waist up. Oopsies! (We're going to assume it's Tori, 38, because really, how much more scandalous would it be if it was some other woman?)
Here's our educated guess as to how this occurred. Tori and Dean just had a baby girl, Hattie Margaret, five weeks ago. They're still in that sleep-deprived new parent haze (which you can multiply if those parents have two other children under the age of five, like Tori and Dean do). We also know that the Spelling-McDermott family practices co-sleeping, because they've posted cute pictures of the family snoozing together on Twitter before.
So here's what we're thinking: Everybody is getting ready for bed, Tori is breastfeeding the baby, they're all exhausted and ready to collapse. Liam grabs the phone and stickers, Dean agrees to play before bed, hits "send" in his sleep-deprived condition, and there you have it.
Here's the plus side of tweeting a nude picture, accidentally or no: In the past few hours, McDermott has gained more than 1,000 Twitter followers, for a total of more than 75,000. His faux pas may land him on Tori's bad side for a while, but at least he can promote their reality show to a whole new audience!
