She later remarried Sal Martirano and lives with her three daughters and their three sons in the suburbs of New York. When the two met initially, it was hardly an era of the Oscars or parties full of A-list stars. Harvey Weinstein was not even 50% of the wealthy executive he later became. On the other hand, Eve was a well-off daughter of a prominent family of New England. In their married life, for the next two decades money started flowing in and Harvey Weinstein multiplied his wealth while she gave birth to their three daughters. Their union came crashing down in 2004 and they soon agreed for a divorce. Eve Weinstein was not a socialite and was never fond of making polite or small talk with the somebodies of Hollywood and hence in all the major profiles of Weinstein and in several publications, there was hardly any mention of Eve Chilton. That was because Eve, unlike her husband, did not care to be a public person or offer up any private information about her family. Chilton’s mother Maude was a descendant of Edmund Randolph, who was the first Attorney General of the United States, and her great-grandfather founded the nation’s first global law firm, Hunton and Williams. Eve’s father, Tom meanwhile was an investment adviser who worked with clients in the Boston area as well as on Nantucket and the Vineyard. The family also belonged to a number of high-end clubs, most notably The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts. Eve is portrayed as loving and devoted and selfless by all those who speak of her in the book, whether she was trying to get her husband to see a trainer, remodeling his office or avoiding the gossip and petty disputes her husband always found himself involved in. The two managed to keep the details of their divorce settlement under wraps, but it was revealed that Eve had gained possession of their 5,500 square-foot apartment at 88 Central Park West as a result of the divorce settlement.
