Kenneth P. Vogel and Dylan Byers ("POLITICO") report on the now forgotten love story of Arianna Huffington and Newt Gingrich.
They were 90s bed fellows, now they are (or at least she is) waging a bitter feud.
How did it come to be?
That would be a nice TV movie or book. I am sure that both have a moderate amount of supporters and both have an even larger legion of detractors. A juicy TV movie could really pull in the ratings.
With Newt I'd cast William Shatner (who could do the part) or Tim Kazurinsky. With Arianna the problem is the huge change (plastic surgery on the nose, on the under eye pockets, etc.). I think I'd disregard looks (not look for an actress who looked like Arianna) and instead go for one who could capture the character.
You know who that would be?
It shouldn't be a surprise that she could handle the lighter moments (see her comedy work in "Moonlighting" and "Cybill") and she could handle the heavy dramatic scenes as well.
I would watch that TV movie.
