10 Chilling Details Bravo's Dirty John Left Out From the Disturbing True Story
If you're still reeling from the wild Dirty John finale, we're right there with you. The eight-episode Bravo series — which is based on the true story of how interior designer Debra Newell (Connie Britton) fell prey to notorious con artist John Meehan (Eric Bana) — came to an end on Sunday night with the death of Meehan.

Yes, it's true that Meehan and Newell tied the knot after only a couple of months of dating. And yes, it's true that Meehan set Newell's car on fire when they were separated, though it was actually a Tesla, not a Maserati. Still, there were a few important details that the Bravo series left out from the harrowing true story. Maybe they just couldn't fit them all in eight episodes? We get it — it's a lot.
