Dina Eastwood Opens Up About DivorceBy: Amanda Crum - December 11, 2013
Dina Eastwood was married to one of the most famous men in America for 17 years, and though any marriage takes work and patience, Dina says theirs was relatively smooth. That’s why she thought their separation would be just as bump-free, but it was quite the opposite.
“Stuff started happening in the spring that threw me for a loop,” she told Bethenny Frankel during a recent interview. “I had no clue that there would ever be any kind of turbulence or bizarre things occur. I thought it would just be really cool, that we’d live in the same town and go to the same place to have a drink. I didn’t get it…He’s lovely, he hasn’t done much. It’s other people around him have done things that have blown me away and again my future ex-husband has done nothing [wrong]. He’s probably the sweetest guy I’ve ever met. He is the sweetest, he is a loving, kind, low-key person so my intuition was still great on marrying a good person.”
The family was depicted for several seasons in “Mrs. Eastwood And Company“, a reality show that featured Dina, their daughter Morgan, and their housekeeper Lisa. Clint didn’t show up much, but then no one expected him to. He does, however, surprise his kids once in a while by doing something unexpected, like take them to Coachella.
“I mean he is 83 years old and he’s rolling with our 20- and 16 year-old at Coachella,” Dina said. “He does fun stuff like that with them so they are getting a fun version of dad and a more chill version of mom and life is good for the kids. They are pretty happy.”
The Eastwoods filed for divorce in October.
