Fox News personality Julie Banderas made a shocking announcement on-air during a Valentine’s Day segment of Gutfeld!, revealing that she is getting a divorce from her husband of 13 years, financial advisor Andrew Sansone. Banderas had hinted at the news in December and teased it on Twitter prior to the show, but the announcement still came as a surprise to many viewers.

Host Greg Gutfeld had asked Banderas whether she was expecting any gifts from her estranged husband, to which she replied “F— Valentine’s Day. It’s stupid. I mean, even when I was married, I didn’t get s—.” The audience and her co-hosts reacted with laughter and applause, and Banderas continued to shower scorn on the sentimental holiday, calling it “a Hallmark holiday” and “absolutely ridiculous.”
The reactions to Banderas’ announcement have been mixed. While some have responded positively, others have criticized it as tasteless. Banderas has continued to joke publicly on the split, which she appears to be taking as quite a relief. She shared a screencap of a text chat with a friend asking her to return a wedding gift, and responded to one user who told her she will “wish she had done it sooner” with “yeah, like 13 years ago.”
Banderas’ divorce announcement has sparked conversations about the importance of self-care and the need to prioritize one’s own mental health. It has also highlighted the fact that divorce is not always a negative thing. In some cases, it can be a positive step towards a healthier and happier life.
No matter what the outcome of Banderas’ divorce may be, it is clear that she is taking it in stride and is determined to make the best of the situation. Her announcement has been an inspiration to many viewers who have found themselves in similar situations, showing them that it is possible to move on from difficult relationships and find joy in life again.
