Callista Gingrich Defends Newt's 'Open Marriage' Accusations On Funny Or Die (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

After Newt Gingrich's second wife Marianne told ABC News that her ex-husband requested an open marriage prior to their divorce, some pundits thought the revelation could harm Newt's chances at the presidency. In a Funny Or Die video released Monday, his current wife Callista (played by Casey Wilson, sans distinctive Callista hairstyle), for whom Newt left his second wife, defends her husband.

"How could a man with the body of Mario Batali and the face of a goblin with gigantism be irresistible to the fairer sex?" Callista hypothetically asks. But she's living proof that, indeed, there have been points in time that multiple women desperately wanted Newt, and there just wasn't enough to go around (if you can believe that).

"An open marriage is just like a regular marriage, only with more crying," Callista explains, responding to questions of whether she and Newt currently have an open marriage -- since she was the one who encouraged him to push for one with Marianne.

We're excited to see what else Funny Or Die does this election season with their 2012 coverage, Live Funny Or Die. Barely four days have passed since the "open marriage" news was first announced, and they've already spoofed it. At this rate, maybe we'll start tuning to FoD rather than CNN for immediate debate responses.
