Tori & Dean put their children first

Tori Spelling divorce rumors need to simmer down a notch. The actress, who has made her marriage troubles with Dean McDermott publicly known, is reportedly not ready to call it quits just yet.

While many wondered if True Tori — the couple's reality show which focused on their faltering marriage in the wake of McDermott's cheating scandal — would end with the Mystery Girls star making a life-altering decision, no major announcements have yet been made. Rather, the pair is said to be taking it slow for the sake of their four young children.

"Tori feels she owes it to them to try to work it out with their dad, even though it's hard," a source described as a longtime friend of Spelling gossiped to People. "They're working on their marriage and they're operating as a family, but of course there's tension. It's a work in progress."

The source went on to describe the mother of Liam, 7, Stella, 6, Hattie, 2, and Finn, 1, as "very non-confrontational."

"That's her personality. She doesn't like conflict," the source explained. "Dean has always been the big voice in their family. But now? In many ways, this has been great for her. It's forced her to really speak up, to demand to be heard and to say exactly how she feels to him. There's a change in her."

There's also been a change in Spelling's Twitter handle, where she's keeping surprisingly quiet about personal matters in favor of talking frequently about her new show and lifestyle blog.

McDermott, on the other hand, still resides under the @Deanracer name, but isn't saying much of anything. His most recent message dates all the way back to mid-June, when he shared, "Happy Fathers Day. I got lots of treats and crafts from the Fam. I'm truly blessed."

Is Tori Spelling smart to try and work things out?
