Tori Spelling stopped by NBC's "Today" show on Monday to discuss her reality show and her recent hospitalization.

"This is our real life," she told Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. "True Tori is as real as it gets."

The 41-year-old actress began documenting her attempts at reconciliation with husband Dean McDermott on the Lifetime reality series earlier this year and following reports that he might quit the show, Spelling assured the hosts she'd like to continue.

"I personally like to do it, for me, it works," she explained. "This was a vehicle for me to feel like a safe atmosphere where I can share. It's cathartic for me. It's therapy."

Asked about her recent hospitalization, Spelling explained that she got bronchitis from her kids.

"I just thought I could do it all: Take care of them, put everyone else first, me, last. Momma bear last," she said. "And also there's an emotional component. I'm just learning that at 41. I'm realizing now that you repress them for as long as you want and it comes out in certain ways."

In an Instagram post Spelling shared from the hospital, the actress revealed she had come to accept that "1 person will never be there 4 me." While addressing the subject on the interview, Spelling said she didn't wan't to discuss the issue, but subtly hinted at possible problems with her mother, Candy Spelling.

"It's not something I'm willing to get into out of respect, but nothing happened [between us] in the hospital. Fortunately."
