tori spellingA week after the cheating rumors went flying and wedding rings were spotted missing, Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott were photographed together in an exclusive photo, and they sort of looked happy. Tori was actually smiling and Dean was ... well ... definitely not looking miserable.

So what does this exciting new evidence mean?!

The hope is that these two are not acting hastily and are at least talking and trying to work things out. Sources say Tori was pretty upset when she found out Dean had stepped out on her with a 28-year-old woman he met through friends while on a business trip in Toronto.

But then again, it could mean absolutely nothing. Rarely do married couples with four little kids just cut each other off when something like this happens. This probably isn't even the first time they've been together since the rumors -- if they are even true.

It's hard to figure out the fascination with this celebrity couple in particular when there are so many other more annoying or dramatic ones to follow. But for some reason everyone is very invested in what happens with these two and photographers continue to stalk their every move.

Perhaps it's because Tori 'lured' McDermott away from his previous marriage, some people get satisfaction is seeing the same thing happen to her. Maybe it's because of the "perfect family" image she's tried so hard to parlay into books and reality shows -- whether it's a desire to watch all of that crumble or defy the odds and succeed.

I vote for succeed! And the latest photo, whatever it is or is not, is clearly a mark in that column.

Do you think Tori and Dean will prevail over this latest bump in the road?
