Fox News Eric Bolling Accused Of Sending Lewd Texts To Female Co Workers

 

In a new scandal for the embattled Fox News channel, The Specialists host Eric Bolling has been accused of sending an unsolicited photo of male genitalia to at least three female co-workers years ago via text message, according to a report by the Huffington Post.

But Bolling’s attorney Michael Bowe staunchly denied the allegations in a statement to Breitbart News, saying, “The story is based on anonymous sources and not true. No such unsolicited communications occurred.”

The Huffington Post web site said it had 14 sources, all of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity, who claimed that Bolling’s two female colleagues at Fox Business and one at Fox News received the naughty message from Bolling.

According to the Huffington Post, the women who received the photos decided they were from Bolling, who previously starred on Fox News’ The Five, because they recognized his phone number from other correspondence.

One of the women allegedly texted Bolling, 54, and told him to stop sending her such photos, the Huffington Post article said.

According to the story, “The women did not solicit the messages, which they told colleagues were deeply upsetting and offensive. One of the recipients said that when she replied to Bolling via text, telling him never to send her such photos again, he did not respond. Four people, outside of the recipients, confirmed to HuffPost they’d seen the photo, and eight others said the recipients had spoken to them about it.”

A Fox News spokesperson told USA Today, about “We were just informed of this late Friday afternoon via a Huffington Post inquiry and plan to investigate the matter.”

But Bolling’s attorney told HuffPo, “Mr. Bolling recalls no such inappropriate communications, does not believe he sent any such communications, and will vigorously pursue his legal remedies for any false and defamatory accusations that are made.”

As Radar has reported, this is the latest in a series of allegation against a Fox News employee.

Fox News found Roger Ailes came under fire when former anchor Gretchen Carlson sued him, saying he’d sexually harassed her. That suit was settled out of court — but prompted a flurry of new allegations against Ailes. He resigned in disgrace in July 2016 and died on May 18, 2017, at age 77.

Also, Bill O’Reilly, 67, host of the then highest-rated cable news show, The O’Reilly Factor host, was hit with a sexual harassment scandal.

O’Reilly was ousted from the network in April after it was revealed FOX had paid nearly $13 million to women who had accused him of sexual harassment over the years.

 

Fox News conservative firebrand Sean Hannity fought back against blogger Debbie Schlussel‘s allegations that the host, 55, had invited her to his hotel room after he made an appearance in Detroit. She claimed when she declined the offer, Hannity blacklisted her from his show. But Schlussel later backed away from her claims after Hannity staunchly denied it and fought back, threatening legal action.

Earlier this year, Fox’s parent company, 21st Century Fox, reportedly reached a $2.5 million settlement with former Fox News contributor Tamara Holder, who says she was sexually assaulted by Francisco Cortes, the vice president of Fox News Latino. He was later fired from the network.

And as Radar readers know, Fox News has denied claims that they banned host Diana Falzone from the network due to her infertility reveal after she filed a gender discrimination lawsuit.

Also, former Fox News personality Andrea Tantaros is suing Irena Briganti, the Senior Vice President at the network, for allegedly orchestrating a plot to force former colleague Nomiki Konst to send a negative tweet about Tantaros, in order to draw attention away from her upcoming sexual harassment lawsuit.

And Fox Business host Charles Payne was recently suspended from the network amid sexual harassment claims.

Exclusive: Are Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge Leaving RHOC?

 

There have been numerous reports that RHOC stars Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson will not return to the show for season thirteen. But a network insider is telling us that these reports are totally bogus.

“Many people were very confused what would happen after Vicki threatened to quit at the reunion,” our source exclusively shares. “She’s not going anywhere.” Our insider calls the rumors “stupid” and points out, “every year this happens.”

“The network is ecstatic that the women have finally reconciled,” our show source continues. “This will help the show’s ratings. Everyone at Bravo is fully aware how much this season was lacking.”

“Tamra isn’t leaving either,” our insider said. “She plans to show the renovation of her new house and Jeff Lewis is hoping to lead the project.”

“They start filming next month,” our source adds.

We reached out to Tamra and she tells us, laughing, “Ya I’m coming back. Unless they fire me 😂” She said the same goes for Vicki.

Our other insider says the likelihood of these two being fired is probably “unlikely” and that the network is aware of what big cast changes do and they aren’t willing to risk what happened with RHONY.

And as we previously reported, the reconciliation was REAL. I questioned whether or not it was real, but I have been assured that it was “unexpected” but “authentic.” In my opinion, this could lead up to a really great season now that Shannon and Tamra are getting along with Vicki. They are definitely funny together.

AllAboutTheTea also exclusively reported Vicki and Tamra will not be leaving the show.

Kenya Moore Owes Almost $7000 in Taxes

 

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore is having some financial troubles, according to a new report. Moore has a lot of tax debt from her infamous home Moore Manor.

According to a tax bill obtained by Fulton County Tax Commissioner, Moore, owes $6,984.85 on her Sandy Springs, Georgia home.

“These are delinquent tax sales,” a spokesperson for the Sheriff’s Office told RadarOnline. “When taxes are not paid by homeowners, the tax commissioner can sell the taxes to a third party. If they don’t make the payment to satisfy the lien, we auction the taxes off.”

In a police report obtained from the Sandy Springs Police Department, Moore’s ex-boyfriend Matt Jordan vandalized her home on August 15, 2016.

“There was obvious damage to the middle (of three) glass garage door,” the report read. “Three of the glass panels had been shattered. A vehicle was parked on the other side of the glass garage door that was damaged. Through one of the broken glass panels, the rear window of the vehicle had been shattered.”

But Kenya may be leaving her issues with her home behind her, as she discussed moving out of Moore Manor to live in a new home with her husband Marc Daly, who she married in June.

AllAboutTheTea was the first to report this story.

Are you surprised that Kenya is in that much tax debt?

Teresa Giudice’s Father Still in Hospital, But He’s Getting Better

 

Teresa Giudice’s father, Giacinto Gorga, is still in the hospital but an insider is revealing that he is getting better, much to Teresa’s relief.

Gorga is still in the hospital, suffering from pneumonia, but is slowly on the mend. “He’s getting better,” a source said of the 74-year old. “Of course, Teresa is relieved.”

As we reported, Teresa had to skip an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and had to leave her father’s bedside to tape the RHONJ reunion last week.

“All of the ladies hugged her and told her she was so brave for coming to work in the middle of her dad’s hospitalization,” a source told RadarOnline of Teresa’s co=stars.

We have gotten to see a lot more of Teresa’s dad since he moved in with her after his wife passed away. He is very charming. We are sending love and prayers to Teresa, Giacinto and their family.
