Tori Spelling’s husband Dean McDermott was living in the fast lane this weekend, telling reporters at the NBC Universal party at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena last night that he injured his arm. While sporting a cast on his left arm, Dean explained, “I crashed yesterday during a practice session. At turn three at Auto Club Speedway I came in a little fast and I tucked the front end, which means the front end lost grip, and I just slammed onto the pavement.” Ouch!

“I’ve got a deeply bruised scapula and this bone that goes into my shoulder,” Dean said. Despite the accident, however, Dean resumed racing the very next day. “I ran in three races today,” Tori’s husband confirmed on Sunday night.

Dean said Tori still lets him race because “It’s so much safer to crash at the racetrack than it is on the street. She’s totally cool [with it]. She understands the safety of crashing at the track versus crashing in the street. This is my third crash now and nothing’s broken. My first crash was a 40 mile-an-hour crash; my second crash was 110 miles an hour and this crash was a 70 mile-an-hour crash.”

The reality stars showed up at the NBC Universal party to promote the fifth season of the reality show that depicts their life as a married couple. Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood will premiere on Mondays this spring on Oxygen. During the new season, Tori and Dean embark on a wild ride in an RV (but hopefully not as fast as Dean drives on the track!). Tori told OK! “We did take a cross-country road trip in the beginning of this season.”

Tori told reporters what fans can expect from her next book, which she’s currently working on: “My book is stories of my life and everything that’s happened so far — so it kind of just picks up where Mommywood left off and all the stories that happened in the past year,” Tori said.“It’s kind of a catch- up and I’ve found that’s what my fans like. They like my stories and the way I tell them whether they be humorous [or], emotional.”
