We generally don't hear much in the way of good news coming from the troubled marriage of Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott, and today is no exception.
The tabloid obsession with the couple began back in 2013 amidst allegations that McDermott had cheated on Spelling with a woman named Emily Goodhand.
The interest hasn't let up in the years since, despite the very real possibility that Goodhand doesn't exist, and Tori and Dean made the affair up for publicity.
Fortunately for the Spelling-McDermotts, 2017 has been loaded with legitimate misfortune, thus sparing them the burden of having to pretend their lives suck.
First, Tori and Dean went broke and were forced to suffer the indignity of selling their lavish mansion in Calabasas and relocating to a rental home in considerably less-posh Encino.
That was followed by Tori burning her hand by falling and landing on a hibachi at Benihana, which is a situation that it's okay to laugh at, because she wasn't seriously injured.
If you thought that was the end of Tori and Dean's misfortune, you don't know the McDermotts!
It turns out creditors aren't the only ones Tori and Dean have been evading while taking trips and going on shopping sprees.
According to his ex-wife, Mary Jo Eustace, Dean hasn't been paying child support for his teenage son from his first marriage.
So not only is she suing Dean, Mary Jo is also giving interviews in which she claims that her ex recently confessed that he regrets leaving her form Spelling back in 2006.
“A year and a half ago, Dean confessed to me that he had made a mistake and he wondered what his life would be like if he had he stayed with me," Eustace recently told UK tabloid The Daily Mail.
"He said, ‘Do I love Tori? Yeah. But I’ve thrown my life away.' It was the most bizarre conversation ever. It made me feel irritated. I don’t want any more drama. It was crazy, extreme behavior.”
Eustace has a much healthier relationship with the truth than either Tori or Dean, so we're inclined to believe her.
We're not sure what her endgame is here, but we're guessing she wouldn't mind receiving a long overdue child support check from Mr. McDermott.
Take the hint, Dean!
