Storyline

Debra Newell (Connie Britton) has a seemingly perfect life: she's successful, beautiful and lives in one of California's most desirable coastal cities, Newport Beach. The only thing missing is love. So when she finally meets charming and handsome doctor John Meehan (Eric Bana), she's quickly swept into a whirlwind romance, much to the dismay of her daughters Terra (Julia Garner) and Veronica (Juno Temple). Their fast-tracked relationship creates tension between Debra and the girls, leaving them no choice but to investigate the stranger who has swept their mother off her feet. And with a fraught family history, the backstory of Debra and her mother Arlane (Jean Smart) provides insight into why she may have been so vulnerable to John in the first place. As Debra gets drawn deeper into his lies and sinister game of psychological manipulation, it results in horrific consequences for an entire family. Written by Bravo

Everyone is in the proper Place
12 July 2020 | by mherritySee all my reviews

Totally took a pass on season one, John Meehan. But season two, Dirty John Betty is a highly enlightening story. I thought I knew the saga of Betty Broderick from various talk shows and docudramas. But after watching this series and hearing all the background in the divorce settlement. I can truly say Betty is where she belongs..........AND SO IS JOHN .
