The 13 Secrets You Will Never Know About Kellie Boyle, – Kellie Boyle,
Fox News host Gretchen Carlson may be the highest-profile woman to allege Roger Ailes of animal harment, but she is not the first. In my 2014 adventures of the Fox News chief, I included interviews with four women who told me Ailes had acclimated his position of ability to accomplish either exceptionable animal advances or inappropriate animal comments in the office.
