Us presents True Tori's epilogue! Tori Spelling told Us Weekly at ABC's party during the Television Critics Association press tour in L.A., on Tuesday, July 15, that she and Dean McDermott are slowly working on repairing their marriage.

Asked how she's doing with her husband six months after his cheating scandal with 28-year-old Emily Goodhand, the Mystery Girls star, 41, told Us: "We're definitely committed to being a family. We're working on things."

The couple chronicled their marital strife in Lifetime's True Tori, a reality docuseries which aired this spring through June 3. By the show's finale, Spelling and McDermott still had not reached a definitive conclusion on whether to continue their eight-year marriage.

"It's a work in progress," Spelling told Us Tuesday, "but family comes first and we're definitely working on it, and things are better." The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum added that she and McDermott were "for sure" still attending therapy sessions together.

While her personal life has been rocky since Us broke the news last December, Spelling's acting career has been on the upswing. Spelling stars alongside longtime pal Jennie Garth in ABC Family's Mystery Girls, which the '90s actresses also co-executive produce.

"It's been a whirlwind, but it's been amazing," Spelling told Us of her recent experiences. "I love every second of it. It's been exhausting, but now that I'm back acting full time, I'm like, 'Wow, I've missed doing it so much.'"

She added that her day-to-day involves constant rehearsing and juggling life as mom to her four kids with McDermott. "We don't have much downtime," Spelling explained of the show's set. "But when we do, we just sit and it’s like having your best girlfriend there," she said of Garth. "We both bring our kids to set. So when we’re not having shooting or rehearsing or girlfriend time, we're having daycare basically."
