Hey isn’t that… Callista Gingrich (along with her famous husband Newt) exiting the Vienna outpost of Tiffany & Co. clutching that tell-tale tiny blue bag on Sunday afternoon. The ever-helpful staff at luxury jewelry store remained mum on whether or not the Gingriches, who are infamous Tiffany aficionados, were at the store. But our tipster spotted Callista’s “perfectly coiffed helmet” from a mile away.

“They live at Tiffany’s,” said our source.

During the 2012 presidential campaign it was big news that the Gingriches owed between $250,001 and $500,000 to the jewelry company in 2005 and 2006. Newt defended his purchases by telling CBS anchor Bob Schieffer, “As a private citizen who has done well, I think I’m allowed to pick and choose what I prefer doing.”

Way back in 2000 the Reliable Source reported that Gingrich and then-girlfriend and Hill staffer Callista Bisek were ring shopping at this very same Tiffany store. Four months later the two were married.
