Tori Spelling is ''proud'' of Dean McDermott for working through his issues.

The 'True Tori' star was left devastated when her husband confessed to cheating on her last December, but she insists they're slowly getting through their problems and are stronger than ever before.

Writing on her website, she said: ''Our family has been through a lot this last year. I'm happy and proud to say that we are doing really well, and that Dean and I are working very hard to make our relationship and our family better than ever. I'm proud of Dean for all of the hard work he's been doing on himself.''

Meanwhile, the blonde beauty, 41, hopes her martial woes will teach her children Liam, seven, Stella, six, Hattie, two, and 22-month-old Finn a lesson.

She said previously: ''I hope to be able to have a very candid conversation with them one day because I hope we will have made it through this and made it out on the other side, and we survived something that was a tough thing.

''We made it through and we can talk about it freely and say, 'You know, things aren't always easy and you've got to work on a relationship, and somethings things happen that isn't great but you move forward. I hope that's the case and I hope to be able to talk to them about it.''
