BROKEBACK MAMA: Old Lady Of ‘Gay American’ To Publish Tell-Some On Being A Mother, Wife And Beard

mcgreevey-dina-matos-mcgreevey.jpgSilent Partner, a memoir of [Dina] Matos McGreevey’s life with her husband, is to be published this spring by Hyperion Books, a unit of Disney-owned ABC Inc.

Last fall, McGreevey’s memoir The Confession was published. In it, he discussed his homosexuality, including what he said was an affair with a former aide and a tryst while his wife was recuperating from a C-section. The former aide, Golan Cipel, has denied they ever had sex and he accused McGreevey of sexually harassing him.

The book, briefly on best-seller charts, sold about 36,000 copies.

During the now-famous news conference in August 2004 in which he outed himself as “a gay American,” Matos McGreevey, 40, stoically stood by her husband’s side. Since then, she hasn’t uttered a word publicly.

“I’ve had a lot of requests for interviews and appearances, but thought it best for my daughter and myself to stay out of the public maelstrom,” said Matos McGreevey yesterday in a written statement from her publisher. “But two years have passed and still I am the subject of much speculation as to the nature of my relationship with my husband.

“Enough is enough.”
