Bill deBlasio and Chirlane McCray are separating. From each other, that is, except they really aren’t. According to the interview they requested from the New York Times (who naturally and with alacrity responded to their summons), they will still be together, an undivorced but adulterous pair of sexegenarian empty-nesters dwelling as always in their Park Slope townhome. Bill will still be a straight white man and Chirlane will still be a black lesbian, and of course, they love each other as much as ever. And they will still be mindfully co-parenting their grown children. It’s just that they’ll be dating other people at the same time.
Why are Bill and Chirlane telling us this?
