WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) -- Anthony Scaramucci and his wife Deidre appreared on "Dr. Phil" on Tuesday where it was revealed that Mrs. Scaramucci had no knowledge that Anthony accepted a job with the White House.

"I thought she'd be okay with it because I flipped it around, Dr. Phil. I was like okay, this is going to be good for my family and it wasn't," Anthony explained. "'It was good for me maybe. It maybe wasn’t even good for me, frankly, but it was a drive that I had. And if something is glittering at you and you’re going at it like a fly, you may get zapped by it not fully understanding what you’re going towards and that frankly happened to me."

Scaramucci also said in the interview that he believed he was doing good by his family because he was making money that would ensure their well being for years to come.

"No, we actually never really talked about it. So, obviously he was campaigning with him. And then one thing led to another, kind of like spiraled out of control and the next thing we knew, Donald Trump was the President," Deidre said.

Deidre filed for divorce shortly before she gave birth to their first child but withdrew the papers days after Thanksgiving, according to The Daily Mail.

"First of all any relationship is a work in progress, right. and I love him and the whole time we were apart I was like, what the heck happened," Deidre said. "So, I, I just wanted my family back and I loved him and I wanted my kids to have their dad and we’re working on it and it’s how it should be."
