It’s Official: ABC News To Air Interview With Marianne Gingrich on ‘Nightline’ Tonight

By Alex Weprin 

The ABC News interview we mentioned yesterday will air before the South Carolina primary after all… but not before tonight’s CNN debate. ABC News has announced that Marianne Gingrich will speak “in her first television interview since the 1999 divorce”” on “Nightline” this evening.

The biggest bombshell: she claims that Newt Gingrich wanted to have an open marriage, allowing him to see both her and the Congressional aide with whom he had an affair. That aide is now his wife, Callista.

ABC released an excerpt from the interview:
