Writing a Dean McDermott post feels like sacrilege. The Deaner posts belong to my glorious co-worker Allison! Allison probably knows the Deaner better than Tori Spelling does (I’m not sure she’ll be happy reading that). Anyway, I’ll give it my best.
One of the few negatives about Canada is in hock with his ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace for over a hundred grand in back child support for their 18-year-old son Jack, unpaid alimony, and legal fees. Meanwhile, Dean and wife Tori “Donna Martin graduates!” Spelling are enjoying Candy Spelling-thrown $40,000 baby showers and taking luxurious family vacations to Mexican beach resorts according to Tori’s Instagram feed. (Vacations from what? Debt?). He avoided a jail term in March by agreeing to pay small installments to Mary Jo on a monthly basis. Page Six reports that Dean has missed multiple payments Uh oh. Well, Mary Jo is taking Dean back to court and there’s a good chance he could end up in jail this time.
Dean told the judge in March that he’d “fallen on hard times” and was even offered a public defender. The judge let him and Mary Jo work out a payment plan wherein Dean would ultimately pay her $1,500 a month after he cut her checks for a couple of larger sums. It looks like Dean lost Mary Jo’s mailing address for those checks, though. Or he and Tori haven’t quite figured out a way to get his millionaire mom-in-law to pay off their numerous debts. One “insider” had a novel idea about how Dean could afford to support his oldest child – GET A JOB, YOU SHIFTY LAYABOUT.
Said an insider, “It’s crazy that all this is over $1,500. He could get a job at the Gap and pay that off every month.”
Imagining Dean McDermott working at the Gap and trying to master folding straight fit vintage khakis before his umpteenth smoke break is amusing. The Gap might be a little too advanced for Dean. This is someone in crazy debt who decided a Band-Aid baby was a good idea.
An “insider” on Dean’s side says that he missed payments because he was trying to set Jack up for his frosh year at college, and that Mary Jo was aware of this.
“It’s not like it came out of left field. It was late because Dean was paying their son Jack’s first-month rent, security deposit and several other college expenses, which Mary Jo would not contribute to.”
The “insider” (Tori putting one of FIFTH child Beau’s baby bibs over her phone to muffle her voice) also claims that Dean made a payment to his ex on Friday. This is the part where I will work in one Allison-ish joke about Dean asking someone “what’s crappening?“, because really, what the hell is crappening with your financial situation, Dean?!
