NEW YORK (AP) - An ABC News executive tells The Associated Press that the network has interviewed Newt Gingrich's second wife and is likely to air the segment Thursday on "Nightline."

“Could you please give me a credible link that verifies these comments?”
Yes, I can. Below is an excerpt from Marianne Gingrich (wife No. 2) with Esquire Magazine, with a link provided in the middle of the excerpt and at the end:
She sounds proud, defiant, maybe a little wistful. You might be inclined to think of what she says as the lament of an abandoned wife, but that would be a mistake. There is shockingly little bitterness in her, and she often speaks with great kindness of her former husband. She still believes in his politics. She supports the Tea Parties. She still uses the name Marianne Gingrich instead of going back to Ginther, her maiden name.
But there was something strange and needy about him. “He was impressed easily by position, status, money,” she says. “He grew up poor and always wanted to be somebody, to make a difference, to prove himself, you know. He has to be historic to justify his life.”
She says she should have seen the red flags. “He asked me to marry him way too early. And he wasn’t divorced yet. I should have known there was a problem.”
Within weeks or months?
She looks skeptical. “It’s not so much a compliment to me. It tells you a little bit about him.”
And he did the same thing to her eighteen years later, with Callista Bisek, the young congressional aide who became his third wife. “I know. I asked him. He’d already asked her to marry him before he asked me for a divorce. Before he even asked.”
He told you that?
“Yeah, he wanted to “

... The next day, Gingrich called Marianne into his office and told her he had come to a decision. He was going to step down as Speaker. And resign from Congress, too, though he had just won another term. Later that week, on a conference call with a few party confidants, Gingrich said, “I’m willing to lead but I’m not willing to preside over people who are cannibals... . Frankly, Marianne and I could use a break.” His political career was over.
In the history books Gingrich loves, exile is a defining moment when a leader’s true strength of character is revealed. But his own behavior just became more erratic in the months after his fall. Some days he was full of bravado, conspiring with Duberstein and Marianne on a five-year plan to restore his reputation and rebuild his power base so he could run for president someday. He even turned down an American Express commercial that would have paid $500,000, Marianne says, because acting in a commercial didn’t have sufficient gravitas for a man of his once and future stature. And he got some good news from the IRS, which said his college course didn’t violate the tax laws after all.
But other days, Gingrich was bleak and hopeless. He was like a “dead weight” at times like that, Marianne says. You just couldn’t get him to move. The contrast reminded her of his mother and her manic depression, and she told him he needed help.
But Marianne was having problems of her own. After going to the doctor for a mysterious tingling in her hand, she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
Early in May, she went out to Ohio for her mother’s birthday. A day and a half went by and Newt didn’t return her calls, which was strange. They always talked every day, often ten times a day, so she was frantic by the time he called to say he needed to talk to her.
He wanted to talk in person, he said.
“I said, ‘No, we need to talk now.’ “
He went quiet.
“There’s somebody else, isn’t there?”
She kind of guessed it, of course. Women usually do. But did she know the woman was in her apartment, eating off her plates, sleeping in her bed?
She called a minister they both trusted. He came over to the house the next day and worked with them the whole weekend, but Gingrich just kept saying she was a Jaguar and all he wanted was a Chevrolet. “ ‘I can’t handle a Jaguar right now.’ He said that many times. ‘All I want is a Chevrolet.’ “
He asked her to just tolerate the affair, an offer she refused.
He’d just returned from Erie, Pennsylvania, where he’d given a speech full of high sentiments about compassion and family values.
The next night, they sat talking out on their back patio in Georgia. She said, “How do you give that speech and do what you’re doing?”
“It doesn’t matter what I do,” he answered. “People need to hear what I have to say. There’s no one else who can say what I can say. It doesn’t matter what I live.”
When they got to court, Gingrich refused to cooperate with basic discovery. Marianne and her lawyer knew from a Washington Post gossip column that Gingrich had bought Bisek a $450 bottle of wine, for example, but he refused to provide receipts or answer any other questions about their relationship.
Then Gingrich made a baffling move. Because Bisek had refused to be deposed by Marianne’s attorney, Newt had his own attorney depose her, after which the attorney held a press conference and announced that she had confessed to a six-year affair with Gingrich. He had also told the press that he and Marianne had an understanding.
“Right,” Marianne says now.
That was not true?
“Of course not. It’s silly.”
I think it will fail because there just aren’t any surprises with Newt! He’s been around long enough and all his dirty laundry has been put out to dry ad nauseum.
It was all a surprise with Cain. He wasn’t what we thought he was and there just wasn’t enough time to “get over it”. I for one am getting quite sick of this mess.
Not sure but they probably should think twice about going for high office if they have.
That all depends on what the meaning of "is", is!
I am so happy that Brian Ross for two hours sat down for a two hour interview with Bill Ayers and talked about his relation with 0 bummer back in 2008 - - - Oh wait. Never mind.
As far as we know since Newt has become Catholic and asked God for forgiveness he has kept his vows. I’ll leave his past infidelities up to God. I’m still torn between Newt and Santorum but I will give Newt that benefit of the doubt.
“She said the exact same thing in a 1995 Esquire interview.”
The interview with Esquire is a current one. It took place in August of 2010, not in 1995.
This is going to be an epic fail. Who even watches Nightline? I thought it had gone off the air long ago. Everyone will be watching the debate on CNN.
Marianne Gingrich has nothing new to tell on Newt. He cheated on her with a younger woman and she’s still pissed off about it. I think they had been separated for a good length of time before they got divorced. I don’t blame her but its not news. This was 14 or so years ago. If this is the best the left can do Newt is home free.
By election day, Obama will own almost half the national debt, 6 trillion dollars, and 8 percent unemployment.
The only thing he will have to show for all that debt is pictures of his Hawaiian vacations.
He will have established two new Islamic nations that vow to destroy us. Egypt and Libya.
Jimmy Carter could beat Obama in 2012.
Walter Mondale could beat Obama in 2012.
Jessy Jackson could beat Obama in 2012.
Romney’s Waterloo is now, he could not wait until the book came out.
Doubting this “ex-wifey” thing will not go anywhere. Hell, who ain’t got a nasty ex-wife????
It doesnt matter what I do, he answered. People need to hear what I have to say. Theres no one else who can say what I can say. It doesnt matter what I live.
“He has a big problem drawing votes from women who vote with their feelings.”
You have to remember the judgement of women can run both ways. This is not a young, attractive victim. This is an old, ugly bitter adulteress. She has held bitter interview after bitter interview and this is just another. It’s going to be *very* hard to pass Marianne Gingrich off as a victim to women, especially since she was the “other woman” in the highly fictionalized hospital-bed divorce.
PBS is going to do its own show on Clinton February 20, 2012.
I’ll bet this will end his career and money making opportunities. Some of the guests will be: Juanita Broaddrick; Genneifer Flowers; Elizabeth Gracen; Sally Perdue; Kathleen Willey; Paula Jones; Linda Tripp, Monica Lewinsky, Osama bin Laden/S

I think they had been separated for a good length of time before they got divorced.
That is factually untrue. See my post No. 62 above, and go to the original Esquire interview article link contained in No. 62 for all of the gory details. You will be shocked about your boy Newt and what a basic scumball he was with women. How any woman could defend his behavior is beyond me.
Hey look, Drudge has ANOTHER siren going about the exact same thing. Looks like Drudge is totally out to bring Newt down.
Same with Clinton, everybody knew Clinton was a sleazeball going in. Even during the 92 campaign, there were constant jokes about it, nobody cared.
You’ve got to admit — a Ginrich Presidency would be FAR more interesting than a Romney one.
