Emily Goodhand: Woman in Dean McDermott's Cheating Scandal of 2014

Emily Goodhand is a woman who became famous on the Internet for her one-night encounter with Dean McDermott, a Canadian actor who rose to fame for hosting a reality show titled Chopped Canada, with his former wife, Tori Spelling. Dean is also famous for his role as Constable Renfield Turnbull in a crime comedy-drama, Due South.

Who is Emily Goodhand?

Emily Goodhand was born in an undisclosed location in Canada in 1986. At the time of her scandal with Dean McDermott, she was 28, but as of 2023, Emily is 37. Despite her fame for having a one-night stand with Dean, there is little to no personal information about her.

While Dean McDermott is known to have been born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on November 16, 1966, to David McDermott and Doreen McDermott, information on Emily Goodhand’s parents is yet to be disclosed to the public. Dean is not the only child of his parents. He has three sisters, Dale McDermott, Dawn McDermott and Dana McDermott.

Emily has not revealed her career background. Though her career is unknown, an online source disclosed that she has no links to the entertainment industry. Dean, a graduate of North Albion Collegiate Institute in Ontario, has had a successful acting career, active from 1988 to date.

Aside from being famous for her illegitimate sexual encounter with Dean McDermott, Emily Goodhand is not known for anything significant. She rose to fame after an interview with The Sun to talk about her experience with the Canadian actor, who claimed to have been sex-starved by his wife, Torri Spellings.

One-night stand: What happened between Emily Goodhand and Dean McDermott?

Emily Goodhand first appeared in the news in December 2013 when she sat down for an interview with The Sun. In the exclusive interview, Emily narrated everything from meeting Dean McDermott to having sex in a hotel room.

According to the full interview that was later published, Emily had met Dean through some of her friends. There is no clarity on whether they had known each other for a long time or got involved after their first meeting.

In December 2013, while Dean McDermott was on a tour to promote his show, Chopped Canada, he invited Emily to join him at his hotel, Fairmont Royal York Hotel, where they had sex. The duo had sex for two days after Dean confessed to Emily of having a sexless marriage. “He told me he and Tori had a sexless marriage,” Emily confessed.

The issue of a sexless marriage between Dean and his former wife, Tori Spelling, could be real because, according to US Weekly, Tori had complications after she gave birth to their last child. In the publication, it was revealed that Tori had undergone a C-Section before giving birth, and a lot of serious surgeries followed it.

Dean did not deny the allegations made by Emily Goodhand in her interview with The Sun. In several interviews, he talked about his encounter with Emily and how he resolved the issue with his then-wife, Tori Spelling.

According to OKMagazine, Dean McDermott and his ex-wife, Tori, were always desperate for attention and could have cooked up the story of Dean’s one-night stand with Emily for attention. There was insufficient evidence to back the claims; therefore, we assumed the story was true.

After divorcing his first wife, Mary Jo Eustace, Dean McDermott married Tori Spelling, an American actress and author. Dean married Mary Jo in 1993, and they had a son named Jack Montgomery. They divorced in 2006 due to undisclosed reasons.
