Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott defied rumors of their imminent split, at least for the time being, putting on united front this morning in New York City.

After Spelling did an interview with Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford on NBC's Today, the smiling couple held hands as they departed the studio.

On the heels of weekend reports that a Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott split could be inevitable, they at least tried to look the part of a happy couple.

Not only that, but she spoke fondly of her embattled spouse on air.

Tori was asked if Dean (who was backstage, but did not appear during the TV segment) was a dependable husband during her recent hospitalization.

This has been one of the rumored reasons for their impending breakup, and Tori even acknowledged that she's read gossip about it, but says it's all B.S.

"Dean was amazing. I read all of this as well. He was by my side daily. He proved it, he was home taking care of four kids, he really stepped up," she said.

"He has, in a big way," she said of her man and his efforts at home.

While a turmoil-ridden Dean McDermott says he's quitting the couple's reality show after this season, Tori says she still enjoys filming True Tori on Lifetime.

"I personally like doing it, for me it works," she says. "I know it's individual, that it's not for everyone. I came from a family that didn't talk about emotions."

"We repressed things. This has been a vehicle for me to feel like a safe atmosphere where I could share and it's cathartic. It's like therapy for me."

McDermott recently expressed his anger towards the series - and and off the air - saying all it's done has made him look like a bad guy and a train wreck.

Well, yeah. That is entire the point of the show and has been from day one.

Recent weeks have really upped the ante, though. Not only has Dean's ex Mary Jo Eustace been a big factor, Tori invited Emily Goodhand to join as well.

Dean? Not too pleased about that maneuver, as you can probably imagine.

Plans to bring his mysterious mistress on board have reportedly been nixed, but you can watch True Tori online to see her impact on their lives every week.

She's the infamous, faceless Canadian elephant in the room. Or just fake.
