In the Oxygen documentary, Bales — who had two kids with Meehan — opens up about how blindsided she felt after learning Meehan had impregnated another woman with whom he’d had an affair.

Searching for answers as to why the man who never ogled women or flirted with anyone else would cheat on her, she tracked down his estranged mother’s phone number and called her.

“I said, ‘This is Tonia. I’m married to your son John,’ ” she says.

“She [his mom] was totally quiet. Then she said, ‘Oh Tonia, I knew you would call me one day.’ “

“That just led to the whole conversation that he’s changed his age, he altered his name, he’s been arrested before, he’s been lying and cheating and messing around with other women his whole life,” says Bales.

“I’m in shock,” she says. “Now what? Is he going to hurt me? How’s he going to take it when he finds out that his mom has talked to me?”

After the phone conversation with Meehan’s mom, he terrorized her. He harassed her, threatened to take their girls away from her — and kill her, she says.
