Watters’ Co-Hosts Mortified When He Alludes To ‘Office Romance’

Jesse Watters of Fox News elicited surprise from his co-hosts as he presented his argument advocating for employees to return to the physical workplace rather than continuing to work remotely from home.

Watters’ co-host howled at his deadpan comment when he said, “What about office romance? You have no office ro—”

“You don’t want to go there!” Richard Fowler, a contributor to Fox News, cut in, saying, “That’s the third rail! Stop while you’re ahead!”

Prior to transitioning to a commercial break, Pirro provided a preview of the upcoming segment.

“The Fastest is up next because Jesse doesn’t need to talk,” she told viewers.

In 2017, Watters was involved in a well-known incident within the newsroom, wherein he engaged in a romantic relationship with a junior associate producer named Emma DiGiovine, as reported by the New York Daily News. This affair ultimately resulted in the dissolution of his marriage. In 2018, Noelle, the wife of Watters, initiated divorce proceedings, so terminating their marital union. It is noteworthy that the couple had previously welcomed twin daughters into their family. As per a representative from Fox during that period:

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.

Subsequently, Watters and DiGiovine entered into the institution of marriage.

This incident marked a recurring pattern of discomfort caused by Watters towards his co-hosts, since he previously admitted to engaging in behavior resembling stalking throughout his affair:

“When I was trying to get [my wife Emma] to date me, first thing I did, uh, I let the air out of her tires. She couldn’t go anywhere, she needed a lift. I said, ‘Hey, you need a lift?’ She hopped right in the car,” Watters claimed on an April 2022 episode of The Five.

Said to have been joking later.

“Basically the Zodiac killer,” co-host Greg Gutfeld called Watters, and Pirro questioned, “Is that the first time you did it or did you use that before?”

“Ah, it works like a charm,” Watters quipped.

Watters not only co-hosts The Five but also took over Tucker Carlson’s former primetime spot at 8 p.m. After denigrating female Fox executives in texts and emails, Carlson was fired in the spring of last year.

Two other Fox News celebrities, Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly, were also ousted due to claims of inappropriate behavior.
