C-SPAN panelist jabs ex-lover on live tv

A segment on C-SPAN looked more like a soap opera. Conservative panelists, and ex-lovers, Todd Seavey and Helen Rittelmeyer appeared together to discuss a new book they both contributed to. That's when Seavey started throwing jabs at his ex.

"I probably should confess that Helen and I dated for two years, so we’ve sparred about many things. It might come as a surprise to some of you that we dated for two years, not just because we have ideological differences, but because there are probably some people in this room who also dated Helen during those two years, given how tumultuous it got. It was sort of on again, off again." And it didn't end there!

Seavey threw another accusation at Rittlemeyer saying, "and at times, her gamesmanship would even include things like coldly saying at one point that she was going to play matchmaker and set up a couple, and then seduce the man away to play with his mind and hurt the woman. Which, when you think about it, is pretty creepy, kind of disturbing, and I believe five months later she made good on this somewhat disturbing promise." Rittlemeyer can be heard saying, "Is all this going on C-SPAN?"

"Yeah, this is all on C-SPAN," says an off-camera voice.

"Off the top of my head,” Seavey continued, “what do I think is off bounds? Uh, I don't know, spilling your heart out on C-SPAN?"

When asked for a comment by the daily caller, Rittlemeyer said she doesn't comment on her personal life. She did say however that Seavey's quote "tirade thoroughly mischaracterizes my political views." SOURCE: FOX
