When Tori Spelling married Dean McDermott in May 2006, she never thought that one day she would start new vacation traditions with her ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace. But that’s exactly what happened this Christmas, as Spelling and Eustace are now good friends after a cheating scandal ruined their two previous marriages.
McDermott and Eustace were married from 1993 to 2006, and they share a 21-year-old son named Jack. However, when McDermott played with Spelling in the 2005 movie Mind Over Murder, they ended up falling in love with each other on set and having an affair. At the time, Spelling was married to Charlie Shanian.

Something good came out of 2019 … – 14 years ago, I never thought this photo would ever happen. Society tells us that exes can’t be friends. Society sucks! I really appreciate this new friendship that I formed with my husband’s ex @maryjoeustace. And, tonight, we started a new blended family tradition celebrating the holidays together. Me, @imdeanmcdermott, @maryjoeustace, @thejackmonty, @liamaarocdermott, @stelladmcdermott, @ lola_ace1, Hattie, Finn and Beau. #blendedisbest #ourfamily # 2020 #mcdermottspellingeustace
Just three months after McDermott and Eustace finalized their divorce, he married Spelling in May 2006. Now McDermott and Spelling have five children together – Liam, 12, Stella, 11, Hattie, 8, Finn, 7 and Beau, 2 years old. Eustace – the former co-host of the Canadian cooking show What’s For Dinner? – did not remarry, but adopted her daughter Lola, 14, shortly after her divorce from McDermott.
She also wrote about her separation from McDermott in her book Divorce Sucks: what to do when irreconcilable differences, attorney fees, and your ex’s Hollywood wife make you miserable.
After not talking for more than three years, McDermott said on his Daddy Issues podcast in October that he and Eustace were on good terms again after she bonded with Spelling at Jack’s 21st birthday party. . He said that a “lovefest started” between his wife and his ex-wife when Spelling was sitting next to Eustace at the party.
Their new friendship is so important that Spelling included Eustace in his vacation plans this year, but she couldn’t believe it was happening.
“Something good came out of 2019 …” wrote Spelling in the caption for a selfie with Eustace. “14 years ago, I never thought this photo could happen. Society tells us that ex (sic) cannot be friends. Society sucks! I really appreciate this new friendship that I formed with my husband’s ex @maryjoeustace. “
