Even with the announcement three years in the past, Dina says she's still healing. "It's a long process," she says. As she heals, Dina says she's not ready to date. "I'm not dating currently, but the one thing that Jim has done was to destroy my ability to trust people … especially men."
Dina has advice for women who are in a similar situation she was. "If it can happen to me, it can happen to anyone," she says. "What I want people to know is that—whether it's men or women that have had this happen to them—is that you have nothing to be ashamed of. You've done nothing wrong. And most of them, just like me, probably married their spouse because they fell in love with them. They've done absolutely nothing wrong and they should not blame themselves."
We asked Golan Cipel to respond to Jim McGreevey's account of the alleged relationship and Golan asked us to emphasize that there are two sides of the story and he sent us this statement.
