The war goes on. Jim McGreevey won’t allow his ex-wife’s claim that her book isn’t selling well because the former governor called her homophobic to go unchallenged, according to the NY Post:
“In papers filed in Union County, N.J., court, McGreevey said Dina points the finger at him ‘instead of blaming the failure of her book on her awful appearance on the ‘Oprah’ show, where she appeared in an inappropriate and ill-fitting ball gown with a plunging neckline [or] the continual rolling of her eyes indicating a strange effect [or] the fact that her book is poorly written or dull.'”
The Queer Eye for the divorcee doesn’t stop with plunging necklines.
“‘To believe her assertion,’ his papers contend, ‘you have to believe that [McGreevey] has control of the reading public.’ Quoting Shakespeare’s ‘Julius Caesar,’ McGreevey suggests to Matos McGreevey: ‘The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves.’ Instead of accusing him of bad sales, the Love Gov said in the papers, Matos McGreevey could blame ‘the attitude of certain interviewers (including Oprah [Winfrey]) who questioned the unbelievable assertion that [Matos McGreevey] did not know her husband was gay.’ What’s more, McGreevey claims, ‘such controversy between a husband and wife would tend to INCREASE book sales, not decrease them…Instead of blaming any one of a hundred reasons why her book was a failure, she blames [me],’ the papers allege.”
Such controversy may also have the effect of wanting them both to go away.
