Behind the scenes drama in politics is like an ongoing soap opera. This week we learned about Newt Gingrich's desire for an "open relationship" with his second wife. (Photo by Michael Nagle / Getty Images)

A little piece of me died as I typed the headline on this article.

Newton Leroy Gingrich, the presidential candidate, actually at one point considered an “open relationship” between his second wife and mistress a few years ago. His second wife, Marianne Gingrich, sat down with ABC News to give the details.

Marianne says that Newt actually ran the idea past her and said, “Callista doesn’t care what I do.” Marianne also revealed that Newt and Callista had sex in the bed Marianne shared with her then-husband.


Well, lemme tell you this. Both Newt AND Callista are trifling and do not respect themselves if they pulled these alleged acts.

This is the SAME man who threw everything including the kitchen sink at President Bill Clinton for getting some head in the White House. Clinton, in that case, didn’t ask Hillary to put down a place setting for Monica Lewinsky at the dinner table.

I’m not naive to the fact that people cheat all the time in relationships. It’s almost a form of human nature to want more when you have enough. But for someone like Gingrich to throw stones at the former president so publicly while damn near running a brothel at home?? Wow.
