The latest celebrity same-sex marriage is between Newt Gingrich and Freddie Mac.

When Freddie gave Newt $2 million along with an engagement ring, their hearts were entwined.

Newt's enemies tried to cheapen the relationship by calling him a bagman (lobbyist) for Freddie. Newt was so upset he dropped his bag.

One small wrinkle: when Newt married Freddie Mac, he was already married to a woman named Fannie Mae.

One thing is certain -- if Newt ever became president, the pay cut would be huge.
