They say the marriage is back on track, but these pics tell a different story!

Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott took their kids on a beach day outing in Malibu yesterday, and we have to hand it to the former 90210 star for keeping her brood in tact in the wake of her hubby's cheating scandal and subsequent rehab stay earlier this year. That said, the troubled couple look a little tense around each other! Clearly she meant the "for better or worse" part in her wedding vows!

The reality star appeared frail and thin from stress mere months ago, but she looked healthier in jean shorts and a fringe top as she strolled along the sand holding her youngest son Finn. We have a feeling pal Jennie Garth counseled her back into a better place! "[Jennie] brings out a side of me that I need and love. I don't laugh with anyone as much as I laugh with [her]," the mother-of-four recently gushed to Us Weekly about her Mystery Girls co-star and longtime friend.

Dean should be thanking his lucky stars he has such a forgiving, supportive spouse!
