Dean cheated on Tori? There's trouble in the one ideal marriage Americans turn to for succor in their time of need: Tori Spelling 's man, Dean McDermott , has (allegedly) committed adultery. Us Weekly claims Dean, 47, was in his native Toronto to publicize his show, Chopped Canada , when he decided to spit (figuratively) on his holy contract with Tori so he could have carnal knowledge of one Emily Goodhand , 28, a fan he met that day. Ms. Goodhand tells Us, "He told me he and Tori had a sexless marriage.

* THE FOSTERS. 9 tonight, ABC Family. * MISTRESSES. 10 tonight, 6ABC. "ADULTERY is in at ABC," declares the Parents Television Council, which is, as usual, a little hot under the collar, this time over a show called "Mistresses," which premieres on the network tonight.

Any words of wisdom would be welcome.

In the it-came-from-Sundance comedy "The Oranges," an affair tears apart two knit-together New Jersey families. The affair is certainly scandalous. Some might also find it utterly preposterous. I sure did, and as a result, felt the movie labored under credibility problems beyond the reach of its top-notch cast. Hugh Laurie and Catherine Keener are David and Paige Walling, long-marrieds in a powerful (though unexplained) lull - he's been spending a lot of nights on the couch lately.

Get over it. Ambitious men have affairs. Not all, unless they're French, but many. Maybe Herman Cain had an affair. Maybe he simply likes texting women before dawn. But he spent more time addressing the subject than clarifying his political agenda before suspending his campaign Saturday. As the Los Angeles Times observed last week, recent developments have put "some of the Republican Party's most active voters in a distinctly uncomfortable position: deciding whether to abandon an accused adulterer to side with an admitted adulterer.

A recent survey found that Facebook is mentioned in one out of five new divorce filings, and some experts are labeling it as the top website for facilitating affairs. As the president of AshleyMadison.com - the world's largest service expressly dedicated to infidelity - I could not help but take notice. If Facebook affairs are being cited in divorce proceedings, then the people involved in them are getting caught - which means the network probably isn't the best place to stray.

Even if it weren't as good as it is, Tom Boswell's How Life Imitates the World Series (1982) would deserve to be a classic just for the title. While many fans love to follow the roots of baseball back to the 19th century, we know it's no more immune to change than other aspects of American life. Which changes constitute progress is a matter of endless debate in sports, politics, music, and almost every other arena. Both life and baseball have their no-brainers, of course.
