Tori Spelling has no problem discussing her husband's very public cheating scandal.

The 42-year-old actress and reality star appeared on the Today show on Thursday to promote her Cooking Channel special, Tori & Dean's Spring Picnic, and discussed how she and Dean McDermott rebounded from his infidelity.

"Things are really great right now, but you know what? We had to deconstruct our relationship, we really did," Spelling revealed. "I feel like we're kind of turning monogamy on its head."

"[We're] flipping it and being like, 'Through society, we've been told what life should be, what marriage should be.' I believed the same thing growing up. I wanted the fairy tale," Spelling explained. "I thought it should be that way. And then when it wasn't,'I was like, 'Well, what do I do? I divorce my husband? I have four kids!'"

Spelling said, despite the affair, she realized she still loved McDermott and wanted to make it work. The couple documented the aftermath and all that work they did on their relationship in their 2014 Lifetime docuseries, True Tori.

"We started at the ground zero and built it back up," Spelling concluded.

The couple will celebrate their 10-year anniversary in May, but the mother of four -- plus a stepson from McDermott's previous relationship -- played coy when asked if they had any special plans.

"I don't know yet," she said with a smile, suggesting that a "bedroom picnic" might lead to baby No. 5.

This isn't the first time that Spelling has opened up about the affair. During an appearance on Kocktails With Khloé, she said that it "changed everything." Watch the video below to hear more.
