Bannerline: From the girl-next-door who got dumped for a Hollywood “Dynasty”
This is how I found out I was getting divorced.
I’m on vacation in a Palm Springs hotel room, holding my seven-week-old daughter in my arms. My husband Dean had been away for three weeks making a movie in our country of origin, Canada, and now has some very surprising news.
He is having an affair with his co-star Tori Spelling and he is leaving me for her rather immediately. He tells me that he has met his soul mate and then rents a car and proceeds to leave.
I begin to realize that perhaps I’m in store for a completely different type of trip.
And so begins Divorce Sucks, the inside look at one of today’s most sensational breakups. In this one part tell-all and one part divorce survival guide, Mary Jo Eustace reveals what the tabloids didn’t—and in the process shows how divorced (or soon-to-be divorced) women everywhere can find their own happy (not made-for-TV) ending.
Sometimes shocking, often gratifying, and never merciful, Divorce Sucks gives you the real story behind one of today’s most public divorces while reminding you that it could always be worse.
