After getting hit with a slew of sexual harassment claims last year, Fox News quietly settled for hundreds of thousands of dollars after a host accused Bill O'Reilly of frequently making inappropriate phone calls and once trying to forcefully kiss her, a recent report claims. Juliet Huddy, who used to be a regular on "The O'Reilly Factor," claimed in a formal lawsuit threat obtained by LawNewz that she was booted from the primetime show "in retaliation for rebuffing Mr. O'Reilly's advances" — despite having "one of the highest rated segments. Huddy, 47, said in the suit notice that she was thereafter transferred to Fox 5 New York, where she was given a a. Huddy sent the six-page notice in early September and received a settlement in "the high six figures" within a matter of days, according to in-house sources. She then abruptly resigned from the network, claiming in a departure letter that it was time "to move on and shake things up. Huddy's September letter contains lurid details about how O'Reilly allegedly tried to kiss her when she visited his Long Island home. It also claims that there was some sort of incident at a New York City hotel after she went to "return a room key," in addition to O'Reilly frequently making sexually charged comments while on the phone with her. The letter also mentions newly appointed Fox News co-President Jack Abernethy, who Huddy claims made inappropriate comments and "constantly" asked her to come by his office. Both O'Reilly and Abernethy denied the allegations from the start and neither of the two ended up contributing any personal funds to Huddy's settlement, according to sources.
Juliet Huddy: "Overall I thought it was entertaining."
When she rebuffed his advances, he tried to derail her career, according to a draft of a letter from her lawyers to Fox News that was obtained by The New York Times. He invited her to his house on Long Island, tried to kiss her, took her to dinner and the theater, and after asking her to return a key to his hotel room, appeared at the door in his boxer shorts, according to the letter. In exchange for her silence and agreement not to sue, she was paid a sum in the high six figures, according to people briefed on the agreement.
The movie depicts the scandal surrounding the sexual harassment allegations lobbied at former network CEO Roger Ailes. Theron and Robbie have already received Golden Globe nominations for their incredible performances, although Kidman is just as fierce in her depiction of Gretchen Carlson. The movie is full of badass moments from the three women trying to come forward and get Ailes fired from his job. It's hard to pick just ten of the best moments, but we attempted to with the following list. Juliet is one of the women that helps Megyn come forward and gives her a list of names of other women currently working at the network who have been victims of Roger's harassment. The real Huddy actually broke her NDA to come forward about the sexual harassment allegations and discuss her experiences with the film's screenwriter, Charles Randolph, reports The Hollywood Reporter. The main conflict of Bombshell kicks off when Gretchen gets fired from her job and decides to move forward by directly suing Roger Ailes. She "does her homework" as is said about her multiple times throughout the movie.
