Joy Pierce: Shacking Up with Bruce Beresford-Redman

by at . Comments

Up until his arrest for murder this week, former Survivor producer Bruce Beresford-Redman had been living with his mistress.

Soon after Bruce was considered a suspect in the April death of Monica Beresford-Redman, whose body was found in a sewer near the Cancun resort where this couple had been staying, sources confirmed that he'd been sleeping with a woman named Joy Pierce.

Now, a new report states these two had been residing in Bruce's Southern California home together for months, throughout the police investigation into his role in his wife's death.

"Joy has been spotted as recently as last week at a house that Bruce owns," a local told Radar Online. "The fact that Joy had been living in the house is a slap in the face to Monica's family."

Those close to the Bruce and Monica say the affair had leaked out, but the latter wanted to save her marriage.

“That’s why they went to Mexico - because she decided she wanted to try and reconcile the marriage and she believed he was done with the other woman,” said Carla Burgos, Monica’s sister, soon after her sibling was killed.

Bruce was a producer on the former boxing reality show The Contender and met Joy, who worked as the casting director, during that series' filming.

Now in custody, Beresford-Redman is expected to fight extradition to Mexico.
