However, according to an eyewitness, who spotted the reality TV couple last night at the OK Magazine Pre-Oscar Event at The Argyle, Hollywood, things look to be firmly back on the right track for the two—well, at least for now....
"Tori and Dean were all over each other, they looked like newlyweds rather than a struggling couple," the partygoer tells Popdust exclusively.
"If they were faking it then they are both better at acting than I ever imagined. Dean was super attentive to Tori all night and they were being affectionate with each other, with lots of hand holding, kissing and cuddling.
"There were a bunch of hot chicks at the party but Dean's eyes were firmly on Tori, and only Tori, he had his arm around her all night and appeared to be completely focused on her, and she looked really, really happy and relaxed—it was sweet!"
So, were the marriage woes faked for the sake of ratings—or, were they faking love for the public last night—or, are they truly back on track and in love once again?
Who knows really? This is Tori and Dean for Christ's sake!!!!
Meanwhile, whatever happens to the couple, it's likely we won't see it play out in front of the cameras—not on their reality show anyway.
"For me, you know, it's True Tori. I have a lot more to tell," Spelling told Meredith Viera in November. "I have four children, I'm a mom, I'm a woman, and I want to go on."
