Fox News host Jesse Watters's personal life has now collided with his professional life. The wife of the host of Watters' World is filing for divorce.
The Fox News Affair
News has been released that Watters had an affair with one of his co-workers at the Fox News Network. The Fox News anchor first revealed to the news network's human resources team in November 2017 that he had an affair with a 25-year-old associate producer.
"Within 24 hours of Jesse Watters voluntarily reporting to the Chief of Human Resources in November 2017 that he was in a consensual relationship with a woman on his staff, management met with both parties and a decision was made for the woman to be transferred to work on another program on the network where she currently remains," said a FOX News Channel spokesperson in a statement to Enstars.
Hollywood Life has identified this co-worker to be Emma DiGiovine. Both parties did not get reprimanded by the network. However, DiGiovine was reassigned to work with one of the network's top political commentators, Laura Ingraham.
A Woman Scorned
While DiGiovine continued to work on Ingraham's The Ingraham Angle, Watters' personal life is a different story. According to the New York Daily News, his ex-wife, Noelle, was furious with this development when she found out about this situation one month before Watters reported it to the Fox News Human Resources team. That was when she handed Watters divorce papers.
Watters met Noelle at the cable news organization, where she served as a host for a popular web series called iMag Style. In 2009, the two married, two years after which Noelle gave birth to twins and left the network to raise them.
It has also been reported that Watters was admired by the Fox News Network staff as he treats them well over several of the network's high-powered on-camera veterans.
Watters is not the only media personality that is going through the divorce process. Oscar-winning director Guillermo del Toro recently announced that he got a divorce from Lorenza Newton, his longtime wife and mother of his two kids. Del Toro revealed to a Mexican media outlet that he separated from Newton back in February 2017. The couple was married for nearly 31 years.
Actor-comedian Jim Belushi got horrible news as he mourned the 36th anniversary of his brother John Belushi's death. His third wife, Jennifer Sloan, filed for divorce from him. The couple was nearly married for 20 years and had two children.
Bristol Palin also received divorce papers from her ex-husband, Dakota Meyer. The couple was married for two years. Details of the divorce have not been made public.
