Fox News anchor Julie Banderas had some shocking news in store for her viewers when she was on air as she announced she was getting divorced from her husband Andrew J. Sansone.

Banderas first revealed the news of her separation from Sansone through a tweet in December 2022. While speaking to host Greg Gutfeld on his show, Gutfeld!, Greg asked Julie if she had any plans for Valentine's Week and she replied by stating:

"F**k Valentine's Day. It is stupid, even when I was married, I didn't get sh*t! Well, I am going to get a divorce. I am going to say it right here for the first time. Thank you, everyone. Congratulations are in order! … That is breaking news!"

As she announced the news on air, the profanities spoken by Banderas were muted.
