Personal Life

In the ’80s, E.G. dated actor Jon-Erik Hexum, and she was in a relationship with him when he died in 1984 due to a blank cartridge gunshot on the set of the TV series “Cover Up.” “Entertainment Weekly” reported, “The actor, who played Green Beret-turned-model Mac Harper in the new series about international intrigue and fashion photography, had been napping during delays in filming. After learning there would be still more delays, Hexum held the gun to his head, reportedly joking, ‘Can you believe this crap?’ and pulled the trigger. The impact from the blast fractured his skull, driving a bone fragment the size of a quarter into his brain and causing massive hemorrhaging. He was rushed to the Beverly Hills Medical Center, where, despite five hours of surgery, he would remain comatose until he was pronounced brain-dead on Oct. 18.” After Hexum’s death, Daily briefly lived with Deborah Foreman, one of her “Valley Girl” co-stars, for emotional support. E.G. married professional poker player Rick Salomon on July 4, 1995, and they welcomed daughters Hunter and Tyson before divorcing in 2000.

Daily paid tribute to Reubens on Instagram, posting a few photos of herself with Paul with the caption “Paul, the Pee Wee to my Dottie. I am so grateful for getting to do this amazing ride with you. Thoughtful, brilliant, kind and loved. R.I.P. My sweet friend.”
