Font Size:

Gloria Cain will defend her husband, former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain, against the sexual harassment allegations that have been leveled against him in her first televised interview set to air on Fox News’ “On the Record” Monday night.

In excerpts of the interview provided to The Daily Caller by Fox News, Mrs. Cain addresses for the first time allegations that her husband sexually harassed several women during his tenure as head of the National Restaurant Association, telling Fox News host Greta van Susteren that the allegations don’t sound like they could have been committed by the man she married more than four decades ago.

“I’m thinking he would have to have a split personality to do the things that were said,” she says.

Mrs. Cain tells van Susteren that her husband respects women.

“[Y]ou hear the graphic allegations and we know that would have been something that’s totally disrespectful of her as a woman,” she says. “And I know the type of person he is. He totally respects women.”

The pre-recorded interview will be the main feature of Monday’s “On the Record,” according to the show’s website. Mr. Cain and their children will also reportedly appear. The show airs at 10:00 p.m. ET.

Van Sustren posted pictures of the interview on her website Sunday afternoon. Both Herman Cain and his wife appear with van Sustren in an outdoor setting.
