Former Fox News host Juliet Huddy was back on the air this morning talking with former FNC colleague Megyn Kelly about Huddy’s settlement with Fox following sexual harassment claims against Bill O’Reilly.
A non-disclsore agreement meant she couldn’t say much. But, as we reported earlier, Kelly delivered her own scathing rebuke of the Fox News culture when she worked there.
“As a lawyer, you know, I can’t talk about anything,” Huddy told Kelly.
“Do you regret signing that?” Kelly asked.
“Many women go into the settlement agreement because they just don’t want to face what potentially could be coming them,” said Huddy. “You have to think about your future. And some people just want to make it go away and move on with their lives.”
“Are you scared today?” Kelly asked.
“I’m terrified. I’m actually terrified. I don’t know why I’m about to cry. But it’s just — it’s difficult I think people have regrets. People have regrets when they sign nondisclosure agreements.”
Huddy left Fox last September after 18 years with the company which included roles as a Fox News anchor and co-host of a syndicated daytime show. At the time of her departure she was co-anchor of the early morning show on the Fox-owned New York station WNYW.
In January her settlement with O’Reilly went public.
Huddy told Kelly she is not working.
