The 48-year-old actress and her Lifetime actor husband are "going through a rough patch," but they are reportedly determined to "work on their marriage" for the "sake of their children."
"Tori and Dean are still going through a rough patch and a tough space. It's been difficult for them," a source told Entertainment Tonight.
While "things aren't great between them," the insider claims "they are still attempting to work things out for the sake of their kids."
If actions speak louder than words, Tori and Dean have a long way to go. The Beverly Hills, 90210 star spent New Year's Eve in an isolated cabin in Lake Arrowhead, CA, without her husband.
Dean was also noticeably absent from the family's Christmas card. Tori also publicly declared she was not buying him gifts for the holiday.

Last month, the estranged couple was seen fighting in a Los Angeles parking lot. Tori looked irritated and upset with Dean during the blunder. However, the actress revealed her "entire family" contracted COVID-19 in the new year — so maybe that scary instance left her wanting to reconcile.
Tori and Dean can put in the work, but RadarOnline.com is told a divorce announcement is “imminent." A source told us in September that the pair tried to make their 15-year marriage work, but it's over been over between them for a while now.
"Her and Dean have been done for about three months now. To their credit, they tried… they really tried," the insider spilled at the time.
Despite their marriage being on the rocks for some time, our source made it clear that no third party involved. "He absolutely did not cheat, but he just wants sex all the time," they insisted, adding Dean’s "sex addiction" simply became "too much for Tori."
