At one point during the interview, host Marisa Sullivan asked McCord who was the first man to show her “more beautiful qualities” and “broke through that wall.”
“A very, very ferociously strong man,” McCord replied, citing Dominic Purcell.
The 90210 alum and the Prison Break actor first sparked romance rumors in 2011. They broke up in 2014 but got back together in 2016, splitting again in 2018.
“There are many reasons why that man forever will be my forever person,” McCord said. “Literally, he’s staying at my house right now. We’re not together….We’re family is what it is now.”
McCord said Purcell also “went through a lot as a kid” and said he “changed everything ” for her.
“A lot of times we attract what we are. And especially if you haven’t realized your shadow, if you haven’t realized what’s underneath the surface, and I had realized absolutely f–king nothing. So, he was a mirror back to me,” she said. “So many things that happened to him different versions of the same thing had happened to me and vice versa. Dom created space for me but he called me the f–k out. He did not take bulls–t and that’s why I trusted him. I trusted no masculine energies, I trusted no men. Because I figured, ‘I’m going to push every f–king button that you have. And if you cave, I can’t trust you.'”
McCord said “you pull people in from the magnetic energetic space that you’re in.”
“There was a sexual aspect that was underlying that was pulling us,” she added, “and we had explosive sex.”
