The estranged wife of former New Jersey Gov. James E. McGreevey, who in 2004 stunned the nation by announcing he was gay and resigning from office, is writing a memoir. Dina Matos McGreevey's "Silent Partner" is scheduled to be published this spring by Hyperion Books.
"I've had a lot of requests for interviews and appearances, but thought it best for my daughter (Jacqueline) and myself to stay out of the public maelstrom," Dina McGreevey said in a statement Thursday.
"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."
James McGreevey's memoir, "The Confession," came out last fall. He wrote in the book that he was forced to quit after a man he loved threatened to reveal his homosexuality unless he was paid millions to stay quiet.
