Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott faced reports that their marriage was in trouble this week after footage from the fifth season of “Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood” reportedly leaked, but the couple told Access Hollywood’s Maria Menounos that they don’t have any plans to split up.
“We’re a normal married couple and I think it gets heightened when it’s in the press and you’re in the public eye,” Tori said. “No relationship is perfect. No marriage is perfect. There’s ebbs and flows and we go through struggles just like everyone else.”
For Dean’s part, he told Maria that a few moments of the couple’s reality show didn’t tell the whole story.
“They can take a little thing from your relationship and spin it into whatever they want,” he said.
“It starts to feed,” Tori added. “The frenzy feeds and then it grows and grows and today we’re [reportedly] divorcing.”
Despite the rumors, the couple seemed to be attentive parents as their 3-year-old son, Liam, joined his mom and dad.
When Maria asked about their parenting styles, it was Liam who explained their roles.
“Is Daddy a bad cop?” Dean asked Liam.
“Yeah,” Liam said.
“And what is Mommy?” Tori said.
“Good cop!” Liam said.
The couple, who has two children, — Liam and daughter Stella — told Maria they’d be open to more – eventually.
“We would consider having more,” Tori said.
“We need a diaper break,” Dean added. “There’s a lot of diapers and a lot of poop in our life right now.”
