Paraphrasing Marianne Gingrichs account, Mr. Ross said, He came to her and said I want to stay married to you and still have an affair with Callista. Marianne said Mr. Gingrich asked her share him, Mr. Ross said. That was unacceptable to her and the marriage ended.

I understand they were already separated.
I also understand Marianne was with Newt before Newt was divorced from his first wife.
What does she call that?
Private issue between a married couple.
Brian Ross seemed to be getting off on the juicy details.
He reminded me of Larry Flynt. What a POS.
Right. So what? Not ideal but what guy wouldn’t want that arrangment?At least he has the balls and honesty to ask her.
Can’t make the sale if you don’t ask for the order.
Whenever I encounter a man with an ex-wife count of zero, if my count of one ever comes up, I always congratulate him on his blessings and tell him how lucky he is.
I think Newt has displayed sufficient humility about his unfortunate situation to suit me. I voted for him in NH and I hope he is nominated.
And he's the married man whose family she helped wreck.
Romney has won it now.
I’m reminded of a turn on the old joke...”We have established what you are mamm, we’re just haggling over price.”
The real question is did Obama front the cash or Romney?
For an ex-mistress to get on a moral high horse is just absurd.
There, fixed it.
Don’t mormons have multiple wives?
“I understand Marianna was with Newt before Newt was divorced from his first wife. What does she call that?”
Not sure what she calls it but I call it hypocrisy. Plain and simple. She was “the other woman” and she is upset that there was another “other woman”. The worm turns.
We already know he was never going to get the support of independent women and he certainly can’t afford to lose the support of conservative women. Why does no one care about winning the states after SC?
So Romney will get the MS vote. I think there are probably more swingers than women with MS in S. Carolina. Could be close. MS evangelist swingers will probably go to Santorum.
Well at the very least we know that Newt’s wife WASN’T a “beard” like our current POTUS.
Just a thought :-)
The fickleness of voters just amaze me. I can imagine still be undecided at this point. There is nothing new in this allegation. ABC is slime, and that is what this tells me. This really could hurt Newt for a couple of days. Hmmmm, wonder why it is coming out now. Check is in the mail. Romney has the big bucks.
For some reason, Ronald Reagan's Ex didn't do this.
Its called respect. The Ex didn't get it, and she ain't giving it.
Actually, if true, Newt sounds much like my exhusband, they want their cake and eat it to!
Newt is not going to play well with women in America. For one thing, he is fat, grumpy and old!
3. On her marriage to Newt:
“He asked me to marry him way too early. And he wasn’t divorced yet. I should have known there was a problem.”
“It’s not so much a compliment to me. It tells you a little bit about him.”
4. On his affair with Callista:
“I know. I asked him. He’d already asked her to marry him before he asked me for a divorce. Before he even asked.”
I like that, mom.
The other woman upset that there was another other woman.
