Actor Dean Cain says he is saddened by the death of his former fiance, country singer Mindy Mc Cready, but the news didn't come as a shock.
In a candid interview with People magazine, Cain speaks out for the first time on Mc Cready's suicide, saying: "I'm saddened to hear of her passing, but I'm not surprised." The 46-year-old actor, who gained fame playing Clark Kent on the TV series "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman," got engaged to Mc Cready in 1997. "I can't paint too pretty a picture," Cain told People on Monday. Things weren't allowed to be good." The actor says "red flags were everywhere" and he eventually moved into a hotel to escape her.
The singer, who had been in and out of rehab for years, allegedly tried to kill herself four times over the past seven years. News, Mc Cready's first attempt was in July 2005 when she overdosed on pills and alcohol.
Two months later, she overdosed again on antidepressants while pregnant with her first son.
Cain becomes even giddier when he talks about the new TV pilot he just finished filming, which he’s pretty certain will get picked up.
It’s called Bounce, and follows a professional cheerleading squad (Cain plays the part of the basketball coach).
Authorities are treating Wilson's death as a suicide but have not yet released the official cause of death, according to Rolling Stone. News reported that Wilson was trying to end their relationship.
"He wanted a way out and he didn't know what or how to get out," a source told E!
This summer, he appears in two reality-TV series, even though he says he’s not a fan of the genre.
He considers himself a producer, but adds: “I’m currently producing nothing.”In the mid-‘90s, Cain’s career was as hot as the spandex suit that his Man of Steel donned every Sunday night.
Coming into acting after a professional football injury, Cain had chiseled abs that helped make him into an overnight heartthrob.
“It’ll probably make me look silly,” Cain says, but he sees a potential upside: the weaponry.
“You don’t go shooting 50-caliber sniper rifles every day.” In Cain’s other war-related role, the Hallmark Channel movie, Operation Cupcake, his character returns from combat to open a cupcake shop.
