“Julie, I don’t know what your relationship is, it’s none of my business,” Gutfeld said.
He asked her, “Are you gonna get anything for Valentine’s Day?
“F*** Valentine’s Day,” Banderas deadpanned.
The audience responded with horror and laughter, but Banderas insisted she was not kidding.
“Yeah, it’s stupid. I mean, even when I was married, I didn’t get s*** for Valentine’s Day,” she added.
A surprised Gutfeld asked her, “Wait, you’re no longer married?”
Banderas then notified Gutfeld, his guests, and everyone else in the house that she was divorcing.
“Well, I’m getting a divorce,” she said. “I’m gonna go ahead and say it right here for the first time. Thank you, everyone. Congratulations are in order.”
Banderas strongly implied the split is something she wants when she said, “If you know me, you’ll clap.”
“That was breaking news,” she joked. “Listen, you don’t have to be a guy to not get s*** on Valentine’s Day … It’s a Hallmark holiday, it’s stupid. It’s just absolutely ridiculous.”
She then confirmed on Twitter that she was not kidding.
