AFTER almost a decade of marriage, FOX News anchor Julie Banderas shocked fans with an on-air announcement of her recent split from her husband.
The mom-of-three took the opportunity to scorn marriage during a Valentines day discussion on the late-night comedy show Gutfeld!.

Banderas ripped the upcoming day as a “stupid, Hallmark holiday,” before revealing, “It is stupid, even when I was married, I didn’t get s**t!”
She went on to confirm her impending split from her husband, Andrew Sansone after roughly 13 years of marriage.
Sansone is a financial advisor at Allied Wealth Partners and founding president of both Old Rock Media and Big Apple Channel, his LinkedIn page states.
“Well, I am going to get a divorce. I am going to say it right here for the first time,” she said while receiving some applause.
“Thank you, everyone. Congratulations are in order! … That is breaking news!”
In August 2009, Banderas married Sansone at the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church in New York City.
The two had seemingly built quite a successful life together, sharing three children and two dogs.
Yet, Banderas hinted that not everything was a walk in the park.
According to her Instagram, Banderas has a lot of responsibility between work, motherhood, and her relationship.
“Basically I’m a full time cleaning lady who goes to my TV job 2 relax,” she wrote on her profile.
With over 33k followers on the platform, Julie regularly shares photos of her family and her time on Fox News.
While she frequently posts images of her hanging out with her three children, there are very few recent images of her with her former partner, Sansone.
Back around Christmas 2020, the anchor did share a family portrait where her past beau made an appearance. The entire family appeared to be happily smiling.
While she wasn’t afraid to crack a few jokes about marriage, Banderas didn’t provide explicit details about what drew the couple apart.
However, a report by the Independent noted that Banderas previously hinted that her relationship with Sansone was over back in December.
The news anchor had made a comment about her ‘soon-to-be ex” on Twitter in response to a fan who’d claimed Banderas had left them in “stitches” with jokes she’d made regarding her husband.
Her fans seemed to offer their support for the situation.
“He is certainly the loser in this. You are honest, funny, and care a lot about your viewers.
“I have to think you love your family the same,” one social media user commented.
