Golan Cipel: McGreevey is bi, not gay

With his website -- which contests several of the stories ex-governor Jim McGreevey made in his book The Confession -- up and running, Golan Cipel is now hitting the interview circuit to, we guess, tell his side of the McGreevey-Cipel sordid sex story. First it was with WCBS in New York. Last night it was a national audience on CNN's Larry King Live.

So what did Golan have to say about McGreevey? Well, among other things, he doesn't believe that McG is gay. Yep. Bisexual is more like it:
"I believe that Jim McGreevey is bisexual. But, Larry, can you imagine this dramatic press conference when James McGreevey's coming out and saying that the truth is, I'm proud to be a bisexual American."
That's not all. Cipel went as far as to say that McGreevey's coming out was "part of the spin" to take the public's attention away from his threatened sexual harassment lawsuit:
I think McGreevey had no choice. There was a sexual harassment lawsuit against him. He didn't know what to do. And his adviser told him come out first. If you come out first, you will be perceived as the victim. You control of the story. That's what he chose to do.
With that comment, we're guessing Golan isn't a fan of Sex and the City or never saw the episode where Carrie Bradshaw instructed us, while attempting to date an attractive "bisexual" guy, that "bisexual is just one stop on the way to gay town."

McGreevey issued a statement after the interview. He said "I stand behind the truth and accuracy of every word in this book" and "My only wish for Golan is that he find peace and acceptance in his life."
