Bombshell: Gingrich's Ex Accuses Him of Asking for 'Open Marriage

Video

"You need to share me." -- Newt: Talk to my daughters about it Daughters: "Differing memory of events" NRO: Why are you sending your daughters to "face the music?"

Brian Ross, ABC's chief investigative reporter, told WMAL-RADIO's "Morning Majority" program that the bombshell news set to be released by Marianne Gingrich is that  her ex-husband wanted an "open marriage."

"He came to her and said, 'I want to stay married to you and still have an affair with Calista, his current wife," said Ross. "According to Marianne, he said 'You need to share me,' and she said 'I don't want to share,' and the marriage ended," he added.

ABC released an excerpt from the interview on Thursday morning:

Ross apparently scored the interview last Friday in Washington, D.C. after going back-and-forth about it since November.

Although he cautioned that some things ex-wives say should be taken with a "grain of salt," that doesn't make the news any less dramatic.

"She talked about how he called her and told her he loved her, knowing that Calista was next to him in bed in their apartment in Washington," Ross said.
