Callista Gingrich, Wife Number 3. This fabulous photo by Joeff Davis, used by permission, reminds me of lines from Elvis Costello's Mouth Almighty:

So I threw away the rose, and held on to the thorn...
Crawling round with my crooner cufflinks and my calling card cologne
But the realization of being replaced starts to tell tales across my face
Without a soul to talk to or a hair out of place.
