article imageNewt Gingrich's ex-wife Marianne gives explosive interview

An explosive interview with Newt Gingrich's second ex-wife, Marianne Gingrich, may be aired on Thursday evening on ABC News. Marianne has said the interview may end Newt's career.
ABC News has "tentative plans" to air an interview with Newt Gingrich's second ex-wife Marianne, prior to the South Carolina primary. Although the station had worries it might be unethical to air the explosive interview so close to the primary, it is likely to air on Thursday's Nightline, before the GOP presidential debate in Charleston.
According to the Drudge Report, Marianne Gingrich has said the interview could end Newt's career. However, Gingrich himself has dismissed the interview as old news. USA Today reported that ABC News spokesman Jeffrey Schneider said if the interview was aired on Thursday it would give time for Gingrich to respond.
It is not known if Marianne Gingrich has more to add to the information already known to the public. She has previously revealed that she was dumped over the telephone whilst out of town, and they had an affair while Newt was married to Jackie Battley.
The Telegraph reported that Gingrich's two daughters from his first marriage to Mrs Battley, Kathy Lubbers and Jackie Cushman, are opposed to the interview being aired. They issued a statement saying whatever Marianne Gingrich has to say "may not be accurate."
The interview could well present Newt in a negative light before Republican South Carolina voters, putting the spotlight on his previous infidelities and multiple marriages.
