There was a time when Dean McDermott was half of the Canadian power couple made up of himself and What’s for Dinner? host Mary Jo Eustace (we’re clearly hard up for power couples up here). But then Dean did a little Lifetime movie called Mind Over Murder, and he quickly made the transition to Tori Spelling’s new boyfriend and future husband. That was almost 15 years ago, and things haven’t been great between Dean and Mary Jo in that time. Apparently running away to Los Angeles with your side chick and eventually failing to pay child support will do that to a co-parenting situation.
But Dean doesn’t have to worry about catching a woman in sunglasses keying the word adulTORI on the side of his car, because things are all good between the three of them now.
I’m know next to nothing about child support, but here’s what I do know: you have to pay it! Dean McDermott has six kids, one of which requires child support. So you might think he would know a thing or two about fatherly financial responsibility, but he still hasn’t mastered the basics.
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.
