VIDEO: Tori Spelling Meets With Dean McDermott’s First Wife Mary Jo Eustace
Tori Spelling meets with Dean McDermott’s first wife in a preview new clip from the second season of “True Tori” (video below). Spelling and McDermott were both married to other people when they began an affair, eventually leaving their spouses, tying the knot, and having four kids together.
The actress had not seen McDermott’s ex, Mary Jo Eustace, with whom he has a son named Jack, in eight years Until now. Spelling, still working through McDermott’s cheating on her, admits that he is exactly like Eustace warned her he would be, and tells her, “You can say I told you so.”
“I don’t hate Dean,” Eustace tells Spelling. “I mean, he’s a total knob. I know that. But he’s your knob now.” Eustace goes on to share how many expected her to feel “so great” that McDermott had cheated on Spelling, too, as if “karma” was at play, but insists she doesn’t feel that way at all.
That said, Eustace gives Spelling a love letter McDermott wrote her months before the affair, in an attempt to show her how she was blindsided by him leaving. “We were real people, and a real family,” she tells the “90210” star, confessing that she was “humiliated” and “in shock.” That’s not say Eustace really blames the marriage’s breakup on Spelling, who asks what would’ve happened if she never entered the picture. McDermott’s ex replies, “Then there would’ve been somebody else.”
In 2009, Eustace published the book, Divorce Sucks: What To Do When Irreconcilable Differences, Lawyer Fees, and Your Ex’s Hollywood Wife Make You Miserable, in which she did not speak as kindly about Spelling as she does here.
