In Matos McGreevey's book, she insists that she never knew that her husband was gay. She also has said publicly that he may be bisexual -- citing their seemingly normal love life and his tendency to make comments about attractive women.
McGreevey bases his claim that she is homophobic, according to court documents cited by Matos McGreevey's attorney, on a May 2006 New York Post story that includes an interview with Ricardo Matos, Matos McGreevey's brother.
Matos told the newspaper at the time that his sister was getting over the heartache of her husband's announcement and that the two of them would sometimes make jokes at the expense of effeminate men -- likening them to her now out-of-the-closet husband.
Matos McGreevey's book peaked at No. 8 on The New York Times bestsellers list on May 20, 2007, but has since fallen sharply in sales. The book retailer Web site Amazon.com lists "Silent Partner" as No. 4,649 on its book sales list.
