"I was like, 'Look, guys, I don't want the envelope. She was gonna give us tickets to Cirque du Soleil. I don't know what this is about,'" Dean recalls telling "two of the biggest security guards."
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, unless you're Dean McDermott.
During Monday's episode of his "Daddy Issues" podcast with cohosts Adam Hunter and Nicky Paris, the "Slasher" star claimed Paris Hilton gave his wife, Tori Spelling, a gift that almost got them arrested in Sin City over a decade ago.
Dean dropped the bombshell during the latter part of a conversation with celebrity guest Perez Hilton, asking his pal if he remembered their trip to Las Vegas.
Gleefully, Dean told the story.
"We were at some golf tournament. We got flown out privately to the Wynn, and it was awesome. It was a big deal," he explained. "So we were hanging out at the pool. It was me, Tori and the guncles and you. And you had this florescent-yellow bathing suit. It was like a '50s [style]. It was neon yellow. When it got wet, you could see through it. So now I know why you circumcise your sons."
"So Paris had texted Tori, saying, 'I left an envelope for you at the front desk. I had to leave early,'" Dean continued. "We're like, 'Okay, cool.' So we're down -- we've had a few cocktails -- we're down at the pool. And Tori remembers, 'Oh, Paris left something for us at the front desk. Go and get it.' So I'm like, 'Okay.' So I stumble into the -- I go to the front desk and say, 'Paris Hilton left a package for Tori and I.'"
"And the lady goes, and she comes back, and she's like, 'Uhhh, Mr. McDermott, ummm, we've located the package, and we strongly suggest that you don't take the package,'" he said. "And I'm like, 'Ummm, okay? Why? Like, Paris Hilton said she left a package?' And in the mean time, two of the biggest security guards come stand behind me. And they're like -- I'm in their shadow, in their shade. They're casting shade on me, they're so big. And they're like, 'Yeah, Mr. McDermott, uhhh, we've located the envelope, and if you accept this envelope, we're going to have to arrest you."
None of this was ringing a bell for Perez, who was on the edge of his seat. "Oh, my God!" he shouted, as Dean continued the story.
"So I'm starting to put it together," he said. "When we met Paris at the airport in Van Nuys, it was the first time I ever met her -- lovely, lovely girl -- she reeked of weed! And I was like, 'Oh, my God. She left weed!'"
Perez interjected, "That was like in 2008. Back then, that was illegal."
"Totally!" Dean replied. "And you could see, like, you could see this envelope with this big huge bud in it. Like, the envelope flap wouldn't even close. Like, it gapped. And as soon as she brought it out around the corner, you could smell it. And I was like, 'Look, guys, I don't want the envelope. She was gonna give us tickets to Cirque du Soleil. I don't know what this is about, but I don't do that stuff. There's been a big misunderstanding.' Because I thought -- I was like, 'F--k I'm gonna go to jail in Vegas.'"
"Nicest girl in the world. Very, very sweet girl," Dean added with a chuckle. "But I just thought it was so funny! Like, 'Yeah, I'm gonna leave Tori a little package.' Like, a big bud in an envelope!"
