Cary Deuber Opens Up About Her Relationship With Her Two Stepchildren: Does She Get Along With Them?
The RHOD pal offered some advice about living with a blended family.
The Real Housewives of Dallas' loyal viewers are well acquainted with Cary Deuber's adorable daughter, Zuri Deuber. But, the five-year-old cutie-pie isn't the only child in her life. After opening up about her past marriages during this Season's trip to Beaver Creek — the injectable expert was actually married two times before tying the knot with Mark — Cary is spilling the tea about a part of her family that we don't often see on camera.
On The Daily Dish Podcast, Cary chatted about Mark's two children from a previous marriage. "Lara is 18 and she's a senior in high school; she just started her senior year. Zuri is 5 and just started kindergarten, and they're at the same school together. So it's really sweet: Lara drove her to school this morning, because I'm here in New York so that's sweet."
Cary also has a 21-year-old stepson, Gray, who's in college. "He's a film major and he has one more year and then he graduates, so we'll see! We're getting one off the payroll pretty soon," she joked. "He was actually here at NBC this summer doing an internship."
So, how does Cary get along with the two young adults? "I'm really close to them; they're two of my best friends so I'm really fortunate," Cary said. Not that bonding with her stepkids was a breeze from the get-go. "I put in the work, which you have to do as a stepparent, getting in there, getting in the crux of things. But it paid off," she said.
She also shared a sweet anecdote from a time when she and Mark met her stepson out for dinner in New York. "My husband and I flew in to have dinner with him, and he said the most amazing thing which was music to my ears," Cary shared. "He said: 'I actually love divorce. You know why? Because my mom's happy, my stepmom's happy, and my dad's happy, and all the kids are happy.' That means I did my job; we all did our jobs."
