Fox News anchor Julie Banderas sensationally announced she is getting a divorce on live television before slamming Valentine’s Day, claiming she ‘didn’t get s**t’ when she was married.
The mother of three, 49, hinted at her surprise announcement on Twitter just hours ahead of Thursday night’s show, writing: ‘Tune into @gutfeldfox tonight at 11pm ET. I have a little announcement at the end of the show. (During the Valentine’s Day segment ironically).’
Banderas was seen laughing when host Greg Gutfeld asked if she was ‘going to get anything for Valentine’s Day’ and if her relationship was ‘over.’
‘F**k Valentine’s Day,’ she replied, as she sat coolly with her arm propped on the back of the chair. ‘Yeah, it’s stupid. Even when I was married I didn’t get s**t for Valentine’s Day…well, I’m getting a divorce, I’m going to go ahead and say it right here for the very first time.
‘Congratulations are in order, if you know me, you’d clap…That was breaking news, right there,’ the 18-year Fox veteran joked, who married Andrew Sansone, 55, in 2009.

She claimed she ‘didn’t get s**t’ on Valentine’s Day ‘even while married’ and branded it a ‘Hallmark holiday.’ She said: ‘F**k Valentine’s Day. Yeah, it’s stupid’
She married Andrew Sansone in 2009 and the pair share three children together
Banderas went on to call the special day a ‘Hallmark holiday.’
‘It’s stupid, it’s absolutely ridiculous,’ she said, before dishing out advice to the men in the audience about how to present their significant others with flowers.
‘By the way, guys, if you are going to get your girl flowers, don’t bring them to her in a box, that’s the only advice I’ve got for you,’ she said. ‘If you come to be in a box, you better be dead.’
Banderas’ social media pages are often filled with photos of her children – Addison, Avery, and Andrew – doing various activities, including her daughter Avery singing, but little of Sansone.
She announced their split on her Twitter page on December 9, saying the financial advisor was going to be her ‘soon to be ex’ in response to a fan telling her the couple had left them in ‘stitches.’

She posted a text conversation with her friend Ray P., who wrote to her saying: ‘Hey Jules! Not sure what I got you for your wedding gift, but I’d like it back now.’
She replied back: ‘Lolololol.’
However, Ray jokingly replied back: Wait – no lols – check the gift registry and gimme it back.’
‘I love my friends,’ she wrote on Twitter.
Another Twitter user said ‘you’re not an adult until you have been divorced once. Good luck going forward, in the end, you’ll wish you had done it sooner.’
