You go, girl! Former Fox anchor Gretchen Carlson secretly taped conversations with her BOSS, Roger Aisles, telling her they should have sex, according to a new report. Using her phone, the TV commentator recorded their inappropriate one-on-one meetings. Read all the details, right here.
Oh boy, Human Resources can’t be happy about this! Fox chief Roger Aisles, 76, may have lost his job, but that doesn’t mean Gretchen Carlson, 50, is going to forget and forgive him for allegedly sexually harassing her. For months, Roger had been teasing and taunting Gretchen for sex, according to a new report by New York Magazine. Unfortunately, no one believed her because she didn’t have proof, and — dare we say it — because she’s a woman working in a man’s environment. And so, she started carrying her iPhone with her into meetings, determined to bring his sexual comments to light — and it worked!
Roger’s inappropriate comments were almost a DAILY occurrence, so it didn’t take long for Gretchen to build her testament. Gretchen caught Roger on tape, saying, “I think you and I should have had a sexual relationship a long time ago, and then you’d be good and better and I’d be good and better,” and, “I’m sure you can do sweet nothings when you want to.” Naturally, he was immediately dismissed from his chairman position, with Rupert Murdoch taking his place. Gretchen is now reportedly gearing up to slap Roger with an EIGHT-FIGURE settlement in her lawsuit. A spokesman for Roger’s legal team declined to comment on the story.
With Roger fired from Fox, the news channel has been looking at rebuilding and reshuffling their entire team. 2017 is going to be a challenging year for Fox as they may lose some of their best talents! Top journalist Bill O’Reilly hinted in one of his interviews that he might retire, while leading anchor Megyn Kelly‘s contract is set to expire next year!
HollywoodLifers, are you proud of Gretchen for recording Roger’s conversations?
