Gretchen Carlson (right with husband Casey Close) has filed a sexual harassment suit against her Fox News boss Roger Ailes (left). The popular host of The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson alleges that she was let go on June 23 after 11 years with the network for refusing to sleep with Ailes. Carlson, 50, writes in her court filing about a conversation she had with Ailes last September in which he allegedly said to her: '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.' The conversation allegedly came when Carlson went to speak with Ailes, 75, about what she believed were discriminatory practices at the network. Carlson also claims in her complaint that Ailes called her a 'man hater' and accused her of wanting to 'show up the boys' when she complained about what she alleges was diminishing treatment and 'pervasive sexual harassment' by co-host Steve Doocy (center). That is why she was fired from the marquee show in 2013 and placed as the host of her own afternoon show, claims Carlson in her complaint.

So for 11 years, she put up with all of this for her job! It takes her to be fired to come clean. Says a lot about her character. We know Fox News is a T&A station. Megyn Kelly proved that! These faces on Fox are mostly high paid strippers delivering the news. I personally could stand Carlson, especially with her Nazi like stand on do Christmas or else. Happy you are gone.
