At Fox News - Kicked Out Over Pictures
Eric Bolling, formerly a co-host of the famous early evening show called “The Five” (alongside Kimberly Guilfoyle, Greg Gutfeld, Dana Perino, and Juan Williams). The Five is a favorite round-table debate show, related to politics and culture or any other vital subjects that happen on a day-to-day basis.
2016 was a big year for Fox News and Eric Bolling. From the 2016 American Election to the Roger Ailes Sexual harassment scandal, the Fox family went through a lot.
Later, Eric Bolling and Kimberly Guilfoyle reminisced about it all and accepted that it had made them a better person after it all.
After talking about their rivalry with Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper (with Eric throwing some minor shade on Kathy's antics during last year's new years eve), Eric and Kimberly talked to TVNewser about their relationship along with what it felt to be part of the Fox Family and its state.
Guilfoyle was quoted talking about Eric saying,
"Eric and I are like brother and sister, we text throughout the day, Same with Greg (Gutfeld) and Dana (Perino). Juan (Williams) is such a good sport, and he puts up with a lot of our craziness.”
With Bolling adding,
“The ratings have been great this year. But we have also become a family over time. It’s gotten to the point where we can each finish each other’s sentences. When you watch us, it’s like watching a fun dinner table conversation and we have a ton of laughs.”
Bolling also talked about how morale was high even after all that happened with Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch taking the reins and that at the end, it all remained almost the same,
"Fox News has remained Fox News, even after the transition, and we’ll still be the fair and balanced place you can go to consume your news. Rupert has been great, and we haven’t lost a beat. "
The fairytale love affair between Eric and Fox News, however, didn't last forever.
On September 2017 - amid allegations that he sent unsolicited dick pics to female collegues - Fox News released a statement saying that the political commentator and the network were parting ways.
