Sure, Broadway is back, but the big nailbiter is whether little girl McGreevey will get to have her birthday party this weekend (scheduled by McGreevey on a weekend he doesn”t have custody), or will her parents’ bitter (and we don’t mean Starbucks) divorce get in the way. From the Star Ledger…
“This is another example of your need for control,” Matos McGreevey added in the e-mail, which is part of the court record. “Pony rides and face painting don’t make for a good parent.”
“I have seen the hurt look on Jacqueline’s face because of her selfish mother’s refusal to do what is best for her daughter,” the former governor wrote. “The defendant has indicated that she will not step foot into the home I share with Mark O’Donnell. It is clear that her anger has clouded her reason.”
McGreevey, who resigned as governor in 2004 after admitting a gay affair with an aide, said his daughter designed the invitations and her grandparents and schoolmates are scheduled to attend. To cancel the party now would be “cruel,” he contends.
UPDATE: The party is on.
