Sean Hannity Fox

Fox News host Sean Hannity and his wife, Jill Rhodes, have divorced after more than 20 years of marriage, Page Six has exclusively confirmed.

Hannity, 58, and former journalist Rhodes, 57, were married in 1993 and have two children, a son, Patrick, and a daughter, Merri Kelly.

Friends of the former couple say they have been legally divorced for more than a year and separated many years prior to that, but kept it under wraps.

However, rumors of a split were floating around prior to the COVID-19 pandemic as Rhodes was not seen at various Fox News events alongside Hannity.

When asked for comment, Hannity and Rhodes issued a joint statement to Page Six, which reads, "Sean and Jill are committed to working together for the best interests of their children. Amicable agreements were entered into over four years ago between Sean and Jill.

"They maintain a close relationship as parents to their children. Neither will have any further comments and ask for the sake of their children that their privacy be respected."

One friend of the former couple, who lived together on Long Island, said their split "is very amicable. Sean and Jill remain on very good terms and still have family dinners, and attend tennis tournaments for their children. Sean is still close with members of Jill's family."

The friend said neither Hannity — the host of "Hannity" on Fox News and of the nationally syndicated talk radio show "The Sean Hannity Show" — nor Rhodes were involved with other people and that "Sean is basically a workaholic."

Hannity once said Rhodes was the brains behind his success as a talk show host and the author of three best-selling books. He dedicated his first book, "Let Freedom Ring: Winning the War of Liberty Over Liberalism," to her in 2002.

#metoo; except when the accused has a D behind their name.

She will get her day in court. Till then guilty until proven innocent. What the hell am I saying, Hannity has the dreaded R behind his name, in leftist land that makes him guilty of everything and anything no trial needed.

You peaked my  curiousity-- when you are referring to "a leftist land"-- what are you referring to?

Certainly not the U.S. as we have a Republican President.

And it seems to me that both Houses of Congress are not controlled by Leftists...

Unless you consider Trump to be a "Leftist"? (Personally I would disagree-- but you are certainly entitled to your opinion..and anyway, I admit I could be wrong... :-)

And one you might find particularly interesting, since you claimed it said something it did not:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sean_Hannity#Personal_life

Hannity married Jill Rhodes in 1993. [17]  In June 2020, the couple announced that they had divorced the previous year. [214]  They have two children and since 2008 have lived in  Centre Island, New York , on  Long Island . [215] [17]  In 2018,  Forbes  estimated that Hannity's annual income was $36 million. [170]  In 2014 he said he has carried a weapon "more than half my adult life". [216]  Hannity left the  Catholic Church  citing “too much institutionalized corruption.” However, he has said that as he has aged his Christian faith has "gotten stronger" and that he needs and wants God in his life. [217]

If he's a devout Catholic he can't get married again. Well, he can, but it will have to be a civil ceremony. If he tries to marry in another church like SBC, he will probably be ex-communicated. But with his money all he has to do is grease some Cardinal's hand and get an annullment

I don't recall hearing Hannity ever claiming to be a devout Catholic.

My understanding is he left the Catholic Church long before his divorce.

I suppose it is possible someone who doesn't even know him really knows what's going on, despite it being his life.

What difference does it make if he is a devout Catholic, and why would someone not Catholic give two cents about it anyways?

So now he is to be vilified for leaving the church. Why do you care why he left, or what he does regarding his own personal religion?

He didn't act like the Pope, that is mere projection.
