Deal or No Deal
The Pot and Kettle's favorite gay former New Jersey governor (Jim McGreevey, in case you couldn't figure that one out) filed for divorce from his wife, Dina Matos McGreevey, on Friday February 2, 2007. Stating that the couple's 26-month separation "has continued to the present time and there exists no reasonable prospect for reconciliation," McGreevey asked that the New Jersey Superior Court end their marriage. He also mentioned in his complaint that he and Dina entered into a settlement agreement on January 12, 2007 "which resolves all issues pertaining to custody, parenting time, alimony, child support, equitable distribution and counsel fees."
Seems amicable, right?
Well, it seems Jim spoke out of turn:
"I note from news accounts of my husband's filing that he claims we have reached a comprehensive agreement. That is not true," Matos McGreevey said through her lawyer, John N. Post. "We continue to have profound differences about what our daughter should be exposed to, and until they are resolved, there will be no agreement."
The "[w]hat our daughter should be exposed to" bit seemed a little odd. What is Dina afraid the kid will be exposed to? Two gay men? Yikes, not that!
Alternatively, maybe Dina just wants to drag this out until her book, The Silent Partner, is released in May. We won't lie -- we're hoping that she tells some dirty little secrets that Jim left out of his snoozer of a book.
