Fox fans may remember Juliet Huddy, the 47 year-old former Fox News host whose bubbly personality was a common bright spot on Bill O’Reilly’s, The O’Reilly Factor.
The news host abruptly resigned in September of last year from her spot on a New York Fox News affiliate.
She had previously been at the Fox News Network as she is the goddaughter of former Fox News titan Roger Ailes.
Recently leaked documents showed that Huddy alleged advances made by Bill O’Reilly at his home. When she rebuffed the 67 year-old media star, Juliet Huddy claims she was essentially demoted and pushed off of the network to a local affiliate.
After sending an “intent to sue” letter, the blonde news reader quickly received a settlement of “several hundred thousand dollars.”
The settlement came around the same time former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson received a $20 million settlement from the network to bury her sexual harassment allegations.
Fox News, since inception, is known for hiring attractive young blonde women to grace the screens for their viewers.
But their policy of putting looks over substance has backfired in recent years costing the network over $21 million in settlement funds alone.
