Newt Gingrich Marianne Gingrich: ExWife To End Newt’s Career

Newt Gingrich’s ex-wife, Marianne Gingrich, is quoted saying she could end Newt’s career with a “single interview.” Cheeky, huh. When she said it, or to whom she said it, isn’t clear, but she has interviewed with ABC’s Brian Ross this week. It’s reasonable to assume she plans to try to derail his presidential aspirations. It is not reasonable to assume the ABC chat will be a positive for Newt, or that ABC would have any interest in a Marianne Gingrich glowing about her ex. See ongoing UPDATES below.

UPDATE: 1-19-12 11:55 am CDT: News leaks today say Marianne Gingrich told NBC that Newt asked her for “open marriage” arrangement while he was cheating on her with his current wife, Calista. What she may not say is that she was participating in what could be considered an “open” marriage arrangement when she was sleeping with him, knowing he was married to Jackie Gingrich. Reaganite Republican has a new article up. Here’s a snippet:

He’s [Newt] clearly winning it on the issues now… that’s all anybody should give a damn about in 2012: this country needs help, and that lying dog (Mutt) won’t hunt.

UPDATE: 1-19-12 8:30 am CDT: Rick Perry is dropping out of the race and endorsing Gingrich. Polls this morning show Newt has passed Romney in the South Carolina primary polls – within the margin of error, about 2% at this time.

Marianne and Newt were apparently involved while he was married to wife No. 1.

The ex-wife has said Gingrich proposed to her before the divorce from his first wife was final in 1981. Her marriage to Gingrich ended in divorce in 2000. Gingrich admitted he’d already taken up with Callista Bisek, his third wife. Source Breitbart

ABC now has an ethical challenge, don’t ya know. When should they release the interview? The original plan was to air it on Monday, after the Saturday, January 21st South Carolina primary. Ah, but no. The interview will come Thursday night, the 19th on ABC’s Nightline, after the CNN GOP debate at 8 pm EST.  Hell hath no fury like the ex-wife of a politician. If there is damage ahead, it’s already rolling Newt’s way. The interview is described as “explosive.” If it’s going to happen, let’s get it over with now. Thanks to The Drudge Report

  • I’m sure the timing is just a coincidence, scheduling matters and such lol

    How is it viewers still tolerate such hack ‘reporting’, Stephanopolis’ glaring bias in debates, etc… ABC is little more than a shrill propaganda organ these days, so who sits there and subjects themself voluntarily to such manipulation?

    • RR, bet she got paid big, big dollars.

  • Newt did really well in the debate, but this interview could be a huge blow. It seems like the left is gunning for everybody but Romney. Maybe they see him as the least threat against Obama?

    • kellsbells, I think it will be a huge blow. Bet even today, the day after the news broke, his polls start going down.

  • Somebody’s really worried about Newt being the nominee
    Having been divorced I’d never listen to any X. Especially any X. It takes two for a marriage to fail.. One way or another, it takes both parties. So listening to one party.. never.
    Divorce is ugly and has been so since the beginning of time.
    Again, till the press does an anal of OBAMA.. I ain’t interested in their scrutiny of his opposition.

    • RR and David, I’m hearing Marianne is saying Newt wanted an “open marriage,” and she refused, and so the divorce. But documents show she tried to halt the divorce once it started. I can believe a lot of things about Newt Gingrich, but this sounds like a fib fabricated to fit the purpose.

    Ya know?

    I… Just. Don’t. Care.

    Even if true. I Just. Don’t. Care.

    Morals are for the weak and soft!!
    We only need a iron fist of hate and violence to rule the world!

    Newt is the man to blend the prefect combination of a cruel, twisted, moral-less, ambitious anti-christ, along with a willingness to nuke the civilian populations of countries who piss off israel..

    It time we admit to ourselves what we are and who we serve.. I am proud like you all to bear the numbers.. the mark.

    A man of pure hate and evil is the perfect and only pure leader that can take us where we are destined my compatriots, and we should be proud of his ability to adopt any postition and betray even his own kin, when that is what is needed to serve our ultimate ‘leader’ in his rise to power against the Stupid Christians who take their decency and honesty so seriously.

    there will be camps for them, and far worse. Do not apologize, embrace our power and the evil of our capable leaders.

    • Really? You are pulling our legs.. right?
