Clint Eastwood & Dina Ruiz did a real-life wife swap: gross?

Clint Eastwood

Well this is getting interesting. Last Friday, we talked about how Clint Eastwood (83) and his younger wife, Dina Ruiz (48), separated after 17 years of marriage. Everyone (myself included) assumed Dina must have been the offending party after forcing Clint into reality show hell and landing in rehab earlier this year. Dina had also been cheating with her high school boyfriend and had even been banging him at Clint’s Hawaii mansion. Maybe I felt bad for Clint because he’s 83-freaking-years-old, so I envisioned him rocking back and forth in a corner and muttering to a chair over his crumbled marriage.

Then things changed on Saturday. Clint was spotted putting gas in his classic Mercedes after he dropped an attractive mystery blonde off at LAX. The woman, Erica Tomlinson Fisher, had spent the night at his house. There were questions as to whether Erica was actually Clint’s daughter (he was once married to Frances Fisher), but Erica is definitely not related to Frances. In fact — get ready for this — Erica is the ex-wife of Dina’s new jumpoff, Scott Fisher. This means Clint and Dina have gone in for a real-life wife swap. How gross is that? Here’s Erica at the airport leaving Clint’s car:

The plot thickens! Just two days after Clint Eastwood’s wife of 17 years, Dina, told Us Weekly the duo separated in June 2012, the Oscar winner, 83, was photographed in L.A. with a girlfriend, mom of two Erica Tomlinson-Fisher.

Here’s where it gets crazy: Clint’s flame Erica, 42, was wed until 2012 to Dina’s friend of 33 years, University of Hawaii basketball coach Scott Fisher! “After Scott and Erica divorced, Erica was sure Scott was romancing Dina,” says a source. “Erica called Clint’s office last February to discuss her suspicions — then he fell for her!”

Though Dina, 48 — who lives on Clint’s Carmel, California, estate while he resides in L.A. — wasn’t seeing Fisher, 50, at the time, the two have been casually dating since their exes got together, reveals a source. When called for comment, Dina told Us, “I am saddened to see photos of Clint with Ms. Tomlinson-Fisher. I look forward to new beginnings.”

On Monday, Sept. 2, however, Dina took to Twitter to defend her estranged husband. “I don’t like reading negative things about Clint,” the Mrs. Eastwood & Company star tweeted. “He is a wonderful, good natured, brilliant person. No matter what, I attest to that.”

Dina and Clint have one daughter together, Morgan, 16, and the Oscar-winning actor is also dad to seven other kids. Clint has yet to comment on his split from Dina, but his manager told Us, “I know nothing about that.”

Dina has since deleted the tweets mentioned in the above article. Isn’t it funny how she was kissing Clint’s ass until she realized he was fooling around on her too? With the divorce, there’s the question of what will happen with Clint’s $340 million fortune. The Mail says Clint protected his money with a solid prenuptual agreement. Dina will “be looked after, but it won’t bring Clint to his knees.” I am guessing Dina will get enough to keep her mouth shut, which is probably why she was trying seem nice.

Now about these photos of Clint with Erica at the airport. I don’t think this looks very romantic. Clint might very well be 83, but if he’s able-bodied enough to get it on, he could at least lift her damn suitcase out of the car.

    The only gross thing about this is that they’re swapping partners with an 83 year old. Uggh.

    Other than that I don’t really care. They’re all consenting adults. If that’s what they wanna do then all the power to them.

  2. Libby says:

    I have no horse in this race.

    Dina is a dumb airhead who struck gold.
    Clint is a vindictive dbag who has treated every ex he has had with incredible spite.
    Which is what his new hookup is about.

    • JudyK says:

      That’s what I was going to say. It wasn’t a swap…it was mutual common sharing about marriage woes that led to a hookup. It happens.

      The only thing gross about this, other than everything about Dina, is the ridiculous age difference between Clint and Erica.

  3. Bianca says:

    Ugh, I wish I could unread this.

  4. Sarah says:

    Couldn’t they have been plotting divorce strategy? And why is this gross for Clint when Shania Twain did it too? She is now married to the ex-husband of the skank that was cheating with her husband.

  5. Tessa says:

    I need more receipts before I believe he’s sleeping with her. All I see is a ride to the airport.

  6. sarah says:

    It’s not gross. (if you don’t think about the age thing) But the “swapping” isn’t gross. I have 2 sets of grandparents on my dad’s side. Birth grandpa and grandma were married and step grandpa and grandpa were married. Both couples split up, traded spouses, remarried and lived happily after after.

  7. Ashley says:

    I don’t see why this is wrong, people divorce, people date. Both couples are already divorced or in the process of getting a divorce. Grow up you guys, this is not highschool. Sorry but if you think your guy or your gils is cheating, then they are unless you are paranoid paranoid…and totally suspicious about everything and everybody.

  8. Tulip says:

    The only thing that bothers me is his age. He could’ve hit off with a woman his age or even CLOSER in age. But no, so, ick, and what a creep.

  9. Kiddo says:

    It might be gross, but in my mind, Clint doesn’t actually sleep with anyone, but talks dirty to an empty chair instead.

  10. Sloane Wyatt says:

    A Viagra infused Clint is for sure hooking up with ex of the man who cuckolded him. Nothing gross here; divorcing people get comfort where they can.

  11. vv says:

    Didn’t a similar situation arise with Shania Twain?

  12. KAI says:

    Clint Eastwood was never married to Francis Fisher although they do have a daughter together. He has been married twice — to Maggie Johnson and Dina Ruiz.

  13. Stacey says:

    Is anyone else doing the math? Married to Dina for 17 yrs but has a 16 yr old daughter with this other woman???? Sounds like Dina was a homewrecker once too! Karma!

  14. Jayna says:

    There’s Viagra. Of course, Clint is getting it up, especially with someone new, as opposed to a longterm marriage.

  15. Meg says:

    it’s clint eastwood-look at his wikipedia page-he’s never single, had kids with girlfriends while his wife was at home, living with women while not yet divorced, his personal life is a mess

  16. lucy2 says:

    He’s had 8 kids with 5 or 6 different women, plus who knows how many other flings. I don’t think anyone should be surprised he’s moved on to someone else!

  17. Karma says:

    Over at US Weekly, and the first article about the split. It seems like Dina actually posted when one commenter was really railing on Clint and how he had treated his women in the past.

    And now with this new article it seems like a good friend of her’s set the record straight as well. Stating that Erica was actually the homewrecker and she ‘hunted’ Clint down to fill his head full of lies about Dina and Scott. The friend goes on about Erica being rude to Morgan (Dina & Clint’s daughter) when Clint and Erica’s affair was discovered several months ago, at a motel.

    Prior to the first US Weekly article, Dina had a vague tweet about waiting for the truth to percolate. And then, later, after the news was revealed, about forgiveness.

    Anyway, I don’t believe that Dina was the one who had an affair first. Her parents’ divorce had a huge impact on her life. She wouldn’t subject her daughter to the same.

    If you want to check it out, the friend’s id is ‘Thetruth’ and it’s located 4/5th of the way down the page, past the load more comments link. There’s a couple more tidbits she reveals.

    It reads true to me especially since Dina is the one who revealed the name of the mystery blonde. IMO, she wants the full story out, that she didn’t leave/cheat on Clint but it was the other way around.

  18. Amy says:

    I was thinking this was Shania Twain all over again before seeing the comments! I was happy for her when she found love again with the ex of her husband’s mistress. It’s a little icky if you overthink it and ironic (is that the right word in this case?), but if it makes them happy, I say go for it!

    People are just saying ew because Clint is a Grandpa, yet most people were rooting for Shania when she announced her engagement. Ageism much?

  19. snowmogal says:

    When Clint was 41 years old, his new flame was a newborn baby. Think about how creepy that is!

  20. Mick says:

    I think Clint got the better of this deal, ride it while you can Clint, Dina is a tramp gold digger, got her loot now she can cougar around.
