Oh Those Wacky McGreeveys!

Now “the help” are starting to blab about the Three-ways:

“The aide, Theodore Pedersen, said he and the couple even had a nickname for the weekly romps, from 1999 to 2001, that typically began with dinner at T.G.I. Fri day’s and ended with a threesome at McGreevey’s condo in Woodbridge.
They called them “Friday Night Specials,” according to Pedersen.

Pedersen described the encounters during an interview with The Star-Ledger. He said he wanted to refute the innocent image that Matos McGreevey has projected – both during the couple’s ongoing divorce battle and in interviews she gave after New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer resigned last week in a sex scandal.”

SEX SCANDAL ENVY! THe Hidden Curse of our Age. Film at 11.

“He said he was also incensed by her portrayal of herself as an unsuspecting wife in her book: “Silent Partner: A Memoir of My Marriage.”
“I wanted to get this out now because it was so offensive to me that she goes on television playing the victim,” Pedersen said. “She’s trying to make this a payday for herself. She should have told the truth about the three of us.” Pedersen did not say if he was gay or bi sexual and only described having contact with Matos McGreevey during the trysts. He also said he never knew for sure if McGreevey was gay.

You mean he couldn’t tell from the angle he was jerking off? That is if he was jerking off.

Sombody’s lying.

Hell, EVERYBODY’S lying!

“I had heard the rumors in circles outside of work,” he said. “In hindsight, there might have been light interest (in me), but it didn’t seem like he was gay.”

You mean he wasn’t humming the score to Anyone Can Whistle under his breath?

“It did enhance their sexual relationship having me be a part of it.”

Ted the Human Dildo! How tasteful.

“Neither of the McGreeveys returned calls for comment. Their lawyers declined to comment on Pedersen’s claims. Pedersen, 29, served as a driver and traveling aide for McGreevey during his gu bernatorial campaign and after he won office in 2001. McGreevey attended Pedersen’s graduation from Rutgers University in 2003 and Pe dersen accompanied the governor and others on a trip to China last year.
His assertions mark the latest broadside in a particularly public and searing divorce case that has brought back to life the seamy personal issues that erupted when McGreevey resigned almost four years ago.
Matos McGreevey alleges the onetime Woodbridge mayor duped her into marriage in 2000 to further his political career, and that she had no clue about his sexual preference until just before he resigned in August 2004, when he announced he was gay and had an affair with an aide.”

Yadda, yadda, yadda.

“She has demanded full custody of their only child, Jacqueline, plus alimony and more than $600,000 in damages. McGreevey has denied any fraud and, in court filings, countered that he fulfilled his du ties as husband because he gave his wife a child and companionship. He has demanded equal time with their daughter.
A trial before state Superior Court Judge Karen Cassidy in Union County is scheduled to start in May. Pedersen could be among the first witnesses to testify.
A Woodbridge resident, he be came embroiled in the case when Matos McGreevey asked the court for financial records and correspondence between McGreevey, his partner Mark O’Donnell, and other friends, including Pedersen. He gave a sealed deposition late last year.
Pedersen said he became friendly with the couple in 1999, when McGreevey was preparing his second run for governor. Pedersen, then 21, said he often spent 12 hours a day accompanying McGreevey and became friendly with his girlfriend, Dina Matos, as well.
“The more we spend time with each other, the more we begin to trust each other with non-professional things,” he said. “That rela tionship starts to progress, to transform into subtle hints, flirts.”
He described in detail the first Friday night encounter, which he said occurred sometime in 1999 and recurred “numerous times” over the ensuing months.
Then, Pedersen said, “Friday night specials developed into Saturday mornings.”

Don’t you hate when that happens?

“He said his sexual liaisons with the couple blossomed fully during a trip to Atlantic City, but that they stopped after McGreevey was elected governor in November 2001.
McGreevey proposed to his wife during a 2000 trip to Montreal. In her book, “Silent Partner,” Matos McGreevey wrote that she would not let Pedersen accompany them on the trip.
“She started talking about us three” in her book, Pedersen said. “She should have continued it. She should have told the truth about the three of us. I am Dina’s Silent Partner.”
Pedersen’s revelations stand in stark contrast to the picture that has been painted in recent years by both McGreeveys. In her memoir, Matos McGreevey says little about the sex life she had with her husband, except to say that it never gave her any reason to doubt he was straight.
“The sex was good,” Matos McGreevey wrote.
In his own memoir, McGreevey wrote of a moment in 2002, two years after they were married, when Matos McGreevey directly asked him if he was gay.
The former governor wrote that he did not answer the question.
“I didn’t have the nerve to tell my wife the truth,’ McGreevey wrote in “The Confession.” “But instead I said nothing.”

Well Dina certainly found the nerve:

“March 17, 2008-
Dina Matos McGreevey’s statement to ABCNews.com:
Theodore Pedersen’s claims, as reported in the Newark Star Ledger on March 16, are completely false and were prompted by Jim McGreevey. This all has to do with the publicity I have received since Governor Spitzer resigned. Jim has enlisted one of his cronies in trying to distinguish that situation from his own, and to discredit me in the media. He cannot stand it when I am receiving attention in the media rather than him.
This is not the first time. Jim started with a false claim, made shortly before my book was published, that I knew he was gay when we were married. The falsity of that claim is made clear on the very first page of Jim’s book, just as his description of our relationship in his book stands in stark contrast to Pedersen’s false allegations.
Jim again became the focus of the media’s attention, just one day after my book was released by announcing his intention to become an Episcopalian priest.
Jim has had a close relationship with Pedersen since his days as Mayor of Woodbridge, and arranged jobs for Pedersen from that time through his years as Governor and beyond. They have continued their close relationship since Jim left office. Most recently, in August 2007, Jim and his partner, Mark O’Donnell, funded Pedersen’s vacation to China, along with Jim, O’Donnell, and other members of Jim’s inner circle. “

Miriam Hopkins she’s not.

Meanwhile about those unreturned phone calls….

“(Trenton, New Jersey) He says yes. She says no. He says yes.
Former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey said Monday he and his wife and a male aide engaged in sexual threesomes, contradicting a denial issued hours earlier by his estranged wife.
In an e-mail to The Associated Press, the nation’s first openly gay governor said published reports by former campaign aide Teddy Pedersen were true.
In interviews posted online Sunday night by The Star-Ledger of Newark and the New York Post, Pedersen said he had consensual sex with the couple for about two years before McGreevey became governor. He said he had contact only with Dina Matos McGreevey during the trysts, and wasn’t sure whether McGreevey was gay.
In his statement, McGreevey said he and his estranged wife need to move forward for the sake of their 6-year-old daughter.
“This happened, this happened in the past, and now we need to move on with our lives,” McGreevey, 50, said without being specific.
His e-mail to The Associated Press came shortly after one from Matos McGreevey. She said Pedersen’s claims of consensual three-way sex “are completely false and were prompted by Jim McGreevey.”
“Jim has had a close relationship with Pedersen since his days as mayor of Woodbridge, and arranged jobs for Pedersen from that time through his years as governor and beyond,” said Matos McGreevey, 41. “They have continued their close relationship since Jim left office. This was obviously payback time for Pedersen.”
The McGreeveys are in the midst of an acrimonious divorce. She accuses him of hiding his homosexuality before and during their marriage and has sued for damages. He has said she should have known he was gay.
Pedersen, 29, told the newspapers the threesomes went on for about two years during the McGreeveys’ courtship and into their marriage. He said the trysts ended when McGreevey was elected governor in 2001.
Pedersen said he came forward because he was angry that Matos McGreevey was offering television commentary on the resignation of New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, who stepped down last week amid a call-girl scandal. During her commentary, Matos McGreevey said she was blindsided when her husband announced his homosexuality.
McGreevey resigned in 2004 after acknowledging an affair with a male staffer who he said was trying to blackmail him. The ex-staffer said he was sexually harassed by the Democratic governor.
The McGreeveys separated shortly after McGreevey’s nationally televised speech in which he declared himself “a gay american.”
