Until a few days ago, Jesse Watters was Fox News’ rising star. He had the opportunity to dine with President Trump last week and got the POTUS’ autograph on a menu card! But he’s now in the spotlight for something else entirely.
Fox’s resident host is in the process of divorcing his wife after she found out that he was having an affair with Emma DiGiovine. The other woman worked with Watters until Fox News learned of the affair.
Read all about Watters and DiGiovine’s relationship, along with details from Emma DiGiovine’s wiki.
Who Is Emma DiGiovine?
Emma DiGiovine, age 25, has diverse experience in the media industry. After completing her early education in New Jersey, she attended Fairfield University.
DiGiovine graduated from Fairfield with a Bachelor’s degree in journalism. She maintained a 3.8 GPA, was a member of the Honors Program, and she was part of the Fairfield University Dance Ensemble.
Around the time she was an intern at Showtime and working for the Fairfield University Student Association, DiGiovine ventured into modeling with MSA Models. Some of her clients included major brands like Tommy Hilfiger and Macy’s.
Joining Fox News
DiGiovine’s initial foray into journalism began with Fairfield University’s newspaper, The Mirror. She went on to work as an assistant editor at Wainscot Media, where she covered everything from luxury and health to lifestyle and digital trends. She was a contributor for Elite Daily until 2016.
In 2015, DiGiovine joined Fox News as a production assistant for Stossel. Among her long list of responsibilities, she was also anchor John Stossel’s personal assistant.
After more than a year at Stossel, she moved to Watters World as an associate producer. While working with Jesse Watters, she produced some of the series’ most popular broadcasts.
DiGiovine’s most famous broadcasts to date include the March 2017 presidential sit-down, a shoot in Air Force One, Trump’s inauguration, and a lot more.
While Watters was covering Trump’s inauguration, DiGiovine was reportedly violated by a passerby in a Trump hat. But she brushed it off and said, “It’s fine, it happens often.”
She Was Transferred from Watters World
New York Daily News was the first to report that Watters and his wife, Noelle Watters, were divorcing.
Noelle Watters reportedly filed for divorce in October 2017, after she learned of her husband’s affair with DiGiovine. The soon-to-be exes are parents to twin girls.
According to the report, Watters and DiGiovine informed the network about their relationship shortly after Noelle Watters filed for divorce. They told the human resources department that the relationship was consensual.
As soon as Fox learned of their affair, management met with both parties and decided to transfer DiGiovine out of Watters World. According to reports, she’s now producing for The Ingraham Angle while continuing to date Watters.
Jesse and Noelle Watters met when she was working in Fox News, too. She didn’t return to work after giving birth to their daughters in 2011.
Jesse Watters’ affair news is the latest scandal to rock Fox News, which is still reeling from the aftermath of Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly’s scandal.
