CONCERNS are growing after a divorced couple have been left alone together for the first time in a decade.
Carolyn Ryan and her ex-husband Bill McKay, have both attended their daughter’s 30th birthday party despite not having been in the same room since their son’s graduation eight years ago.
Although the exes claims they are ‘mature adults’ who are ‘perfectly capable’ of being civil, guests have overheard the words ‘money’, ‘liar’ and ‘spineless cheating cock-minded sack of shit’.
Their daughter Sonia said, “I can physically feel an icy chill coming off mum so I’m guessing dad is talking about his second wife.
“If he does that thing where he muddles the dates of his affairs and starts talking about a holiday he secretly took when he was still married to mum, she might set about him with a cake slice.”
Son Ronald said: “I wish they could just get on like the parents in Mrs Doubtfire at the end of the movie. The day of my graduation, I had to make sure conversation didn’t drift into any danger areas, like the whole of the past.
“They hate each other’s guts, but I know underneath all that there is also a very deep-rooted and long-standing desire to harm each other.
“It’s either going to kick off or worse still they might end up shagging.”
