from Unnati Gahndi of the Globe and Mail:
The woman behind hockey legend Wayne Gretzky says the intense media coverage of her alleged involvement in a U.S. gambling ring blew things “out of proportion.”
In her first in-depth interview since the coverage of the betting scandal hit the stands last year, Janet Jones tells Chatelaine magazine that the media scrutiny put a strain on the family, including the couple’s five children.
“It’s unfair that Wayne and I have had a great marriage for 20 years and a nice family, and the people in the media could care less if they are trying to cause friction in your marriage, trouble in your family, and make your kids feel a certain way,” she told Chatelaine in a story published in the May issue.
“That was a little hurtful because it was like, ‘Why? What have we ever done to you?’ “
