Looks like bad boy husband Dean McDermott is looking to win some sympathy votes from viewers....

The Chopped Canada star talked to ET canada, and said that he is sick and tired of being portrayed as a monster. Though insisting he's not proud of what he did, and is working hard to make things right, he added that he's '... not the first person to ever cheat on his wife.'

He also said during the chat, ..'You know, when you're at the checkout and you look over and you see one of these magazines and it's like, "Dean McDermott's a monster," and I'm like, "No, I'm not a monster, I'm a human being and I messed up,"'

All this on the heels of much speculation as to why wife Tori Spelling was recently hospitalized, and the meaning behind her cryptic Instagram message.

But Dean revealed it's far less serious and says the actress simply succumbed to a chest infection and is already 'on the mend' adding that he was not by her side simply because Tori encouraged him to hit the publicity trail for their show, since she was not able.

The couple is currently living out their real life drama every week on the second season of True Tori.
