It’s the news Newt Gingrich doesn’t want to deal with in the midst of a possible GOP presidential campaign revival.
Marianne Gingrich, the second wife of the former House Speaker, is speaking out to ABC about her former husband’s infidelity for the first time since their divorce in 1999.
After Gingrich admitted to her that he had a six year affair with his current wife Callista while she was a congressional aide, Marianne told ABC that he wanted to have both a spouse and a mistress.
“And I just stared at him and he said, ‘Callista doesn’t care what I do,'” she said. “He wanted an open marriage and I refused.”
Gingrich married Marianne in 1981 after divorcing his first wife Jackie while she was being treated for cancer. Their marriage lasted until Gingrich sought for a divorce after Marianne was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
On NBC’s Today Thursday morning, Newt Gingrich said he would not “say anything negative about Marianne.”
The full interview is scheduled to air on ABC’s Nightline Thursday evening at 11:35 P.M.

Chuck Schumer caught on tape doing a happy dance leaving the White House — what does it mean for war with Iran?
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi were caught on video doing a strange motion after their meeting at the White House with President Donald Trump over the Iran conflict.
It's unclear what was happening just from observing, Pelosi was seen applauding and Schumer seemed to be raising the roof, or at least dancing like no one was watching.
It could mean that there was a positive resolution about Iran or if the two Democrats were simply talking about the Congressional softball match Wednesday night.
Schumer later said that he told the White House that they needed to get approval from Congress. When the press asked about the incident Schumer said his mother was just released from the hospital.
Trump ‘lit his own house on fire’ by pulling out of Iran nuclear deal: International relations expert
Kelly Magsamen, the VP of National Security and International Policy for the Center for American Progress explained during an MSNBC interview Thursday that the president is causing his own problems with Iran.
Speaking to host Ali Velshi, Magsamen said that it was Trump who "lit his own house on fire" when he breached the Iran treaty known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
"I think we are definitely in the middle of an escalatory (sic) cycle, and how do we get out of it," Magsamen told the host. "And unfortunately, the White House has left itself very few options in terms of escalating or de-escalating and same for the Iranians, frankly. [The Iranians] probably perceive this as an attack from their perspective."
Matt Gaetz gets laughed at after his attempt to derail Mueller hearing hilariously backfires
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) tried to turn the latest hearing on special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election into a hearing on border security -- and then got hilariously shut down by one of the panelists.
During his allotted time, Gaetz changed the subject away entirely from the Mueller report and decided to grill one of the witnesses for her views on border security.
In particular, Gaetz asked Carrie Cordero, a Robert M. Gates senior fellow and general counsel at the Center for New American Security, about her work writing about the security problems posed by Mexican drug cartels.
