For decades, Sheila Bentley has stayed quiet about her previous marriage to infamous Providence Mayor Buddy Cianci, whose two stints in office were punctuated by an assault conviction, a corruption conviction, and prison time. Now, Bentley is ready to tell her side of the story.

Jim Braude was joined by Sheila Bentley, as well as Rebecca Gibel, who recently played Bentley in a Providence theatre production about the now-deceased mayor, and Boston Globe reporter Amanda Milkovits, who first got Bentley to tell her story on the record.
