Why Isn’t Jim McGreevey Doing The “Outrage” Tribeca Talk Anymore?

Why Isn't Jim McGreevey Doing The "Outrage" Tribeca Talk Anymore?

Jim McGreevey is no longer doing the “Outrage” panel tonight in Tribeca:

Queerty had an article up a few days back back stormed out of the premiere. However, I was actually at the premiere, at McGreevey was sitting near me and I watched him leave with rest of us after the Q&A period. But I assume there must be some truth to another article in The Washington Blade’s allegations that McGreevey wasn’t exactly pleased with Kirby Dick’s final cut of the film:

McGreevey is reportedly upset that his ex-wife Dina was interviewed for the project. She’s still playing the wounded, naïve victim – supposedly unaware her husband was having sex with men at rest stops and cheating on her with male staffers. Dina, like her ex-husband, is a talented actor. In the film, she laments being duped and claims her life and that of her daughter were “destroyed.” Not to be outdone, McGreevey manages crocodile tears while recounting how he prayed to his dead grandmother after coming out, relieved that he could finally live his “truth.”

Either way, I’m guessing “unforeseen schedules changes” is not the reason McGreevey won’t be attending tonight…
