Play the Victim, My Dear Dina Matos McGreevey? Or Modern Day Threes Company In Governor McGreevey's Suite?

Once a month? Once a week? Every night? How often must one have sex to have what’s considered a healthy love life? Some argue that there’s no set number. However, government experts define a "sexless marriage" as one in which couples make love no more than 10 times a year. A 2003 Newsweek magazine study concluded that between 15% and 20% of couples fall into this category. That’s enough for experts to label it an epidemic. Whether former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey and his wife Dina met that definition may be subject to debate. But the happy couple is apparently pictured here at his coming out party courtesy of the A.P
As McGreevey and friends begin to kiss and tell, it is beginning to appear that he may be fed up with his wife Dina Matos McGreevey playing the victim. McGreevey alleges that he and his wife used to engage in three-way sex with his ex-aide and driver. Dina Matos McGreevey flat out denies the allegation. But former aide, Teddy Pedersen, told the New York Post he had threesomes with the McGreeveys in the late 1990s during Dina and Jim's courtship. According to Pederson, supposedly the three ways continued after the couple's marriage in 2000. Pedersen allegedly regularly sharing a hotel room with the McGreeveys during out-of-town business trips. (Perhaps they were just trying to hold down the budget?)

Dina Matos McGreevey issued a statement acknowledging that Pedersen had a long "close relationship" with her former husband, but called his sexual claims "completely false."

Who could forget how in August of 2004, Dina stood silently beside her man while he publicly declared himself "a gay American?" McGreevey admitted to having an office-compromising affair with a male staff member. He announced his intention to resign. The couple are now in the process of divorcing.

Jim McGreevey admits, "This happened, this happened in the past, and now, we need to move on with our lives," the former governor said in a written statement. "For all our sakes, particularly our daughter, we need to close this chapter and look toward the future... I still hope Dina and I can resolve our issues privately."
29-year-old Teddy Pedersen also told The Star-Ledger that he had threesomes with the McGreeveys for about two years during their courtship and into their marriage. According to Pedersen, the trysts ended when McGreevey was elected governor in 2001.

With a pending McGreevey divorce, can the Sptizers be far behind?

Both Spitzer and McGreevey had relatively hot wives... what did they need with others?

I keep confusing Mr. McGreevey with Mr. McFeeley on Mr. Rogers... or are they one in the same?

Closest thing most folks get to a three way is call waiting.

Interesting lives these politicians lead...

It seems that the only nice thing Dina Matos McGreevey has to say about her marriage to gay former Gov. Jim McGreevey is that he was good in bed.

She has a new memoir, "Silent Partner." Dina, the former first lady of New Jersey, portrays her ex as a self-absorbed liar who tried to strong-arm her during divorce negotiations. (Welcome to 95% of the divorces in America!)

Dina does not hide her apparent bitterness over how he ruined her life by sleeping with another man. He also allegedly insisted that she smile during his "I am a gay American" resignation speech.

The 290-page book obtained by the Daily News comes out May 1, just as the nasty custody battle over their daughter, Jacqueline heats up.

Jim's autobiography, "The Confession" is also on sale.

Now perhaps she needs to come over to the other side and play on the right team.

I lead a very boring life, I guess.

By the way, Dina Matos was on TV all last week discussing the Spitzer scandal . . . if this is true, she is a big liar!

I actually found it refreshing that the new parsimonius NY governor came out about his infidelities right away. I also feel that he can balance a budget because he didn't spend $80,000 like Spitzer, and met his girlfriends at the local Days Inn. . .

Right Ms. C., we need a governor with an eye toward cutting costs.
His honesty is refreshing. I think human failings are easier to accept if they are not compounded by lies. Furthermore, tell the truth and there is no fear of black mail!

Well, did you hear Mrs. Sptitzers coment to the press?

She was apparently shocked to find out that her husband had to pay for a whole hour!

If Pedersen's story is to be believed then Dina must have been privy to her husband appetite for "swipes." She had to have seen her husband giving or receiving during those threesomes. So she couldn’t have been that shocked when he came out.

I think she knew all along.

With regard to the new NY governor, he completely neutralized the media by admitting to his past transgressions before they could dig into his past.

At first, I thought, "Damn, the ink isn’t even dry. He hasn’t even been governor for 2 hours and he's already in a scandal. DAMN!"

But that was a good move, cause I’m sure the media was already sniffing around looking for dirt to defame him. Much like they're doing to Barack.
Best believe if the media discovered these trysts first, they would have used it to discredit him. Making bold claims that he’s not worthy or capable of governing the city as well as the white, non-visually impaired, sex addict governors that preceded him.

Politicians scare me.

Secret, good observation.

So Spitzer is another minute man who wants a refund of the other 59 minutes of time he bought?

Spitzer must really be something... apparently he was not even loyal to this prostitute...

McGreevey was hardly above reproach. Then again, I find it hard to believe that Dina was pure as the driven snow and did not know about all of hubby's sexual proclivities until after he came out of the closet in the presence of the press. Yeah, I think she was lying.
