Marianne Gingrich, ex-wife of Newt Gingrich, and the second spouse of the former Speaker in his current run of three, just had to get her mug on national TV to sing out her farewell song about the man who done her wrong. And while the motives of ABC in airing this piece of pathetic political soap opera are obvious, the personal agenda of Mrs. Marianne is a little less than clear. Of course, she wanted to wreak revenge for Gingrich’s unfaithfulness and hopefully spoil her ex-husband’s chances of winning the Republican nomination. But this lady’s sorry gotcha exposé really fell far short of anything devastating in this jaded day and age. Muddled Marianne came off like a bitter shrew in this interview, a sad loser still brooding over a man who dumped her long ago. A big yawn for ABC’s American audience.
And the real kicker in this dirty personal so-called scandal is the fact that Newt Gingrich cheated on his first wife with poor pathetic Marianne. Yes, Spouse Number Two was quite happy to run around with a married man, dishonoring the sanctity of marriage itself and ripping apart the life of Spouse Number One, a woman who was battling cancer.
Sometimes what goes around comes around and Marianne Gingrich got what she deserved. Forget the boo-hoo for Spouse Number Two.
