TMZ says that the status of Patrick Dempsey’s marriage has been upgraded from “critical” to “stable.”
Almost 22 months ago, Patrick’s wife Jillian Dempsey got tired of him being a dick and filed divorce papers to end their (then) 15-year marriage. Then a year ago, there was word that they put off plans to divorce. Cupid must have replaced his arrows with Spanish Fly-dipped blow darts and paid Patrick and Jillian a couple extra visits between then and now, because she has recently filed documents asking for her divorce petition to be dismissed. TMZ says a week after she filed, a court threw the divorce out. So Patrick and Jillian are officially not splitting up.
Patrick and Jillian have three kids together, so this also means there will be no messy custody fight. Jillian has been dropping hints they’re still together by posting pictures of Patrick on Instragram.
But what brought them back together? I assumed that their reunion was the result of Patrick reforming his asshole attitude after receiving a reality check in the form of getting killed off Grey’s or successfully passing Jillian’s on-set side piece sniff test. TMZ says it came down to Patrick keeping a promise he made not to spend so much time racing cars. Well, that’s just great for Patrick and Jillian. Sadly, this also means there’s a whole bunch of heartbroken race cars out there who are weeping motor oil tears over the news that Patrick has chosen his wife over them. Even though he swore he was getting a divorce. Those poor cars. And don’t tell me those cars don’t care. I’ve seen Pixar’s Cars, I know cars have feelings.
