Julie Banderas, a popular Fox News anchor, has been dealing with a family crisis. Banderas, who joined Fox News Channel in 2005, fills in as a weekday anchor on Outnumbered. She won an Emmy for ‘Best Single Newscast’ in 2004 for her coverage of the Republican National Convention.
Banderas’ social media posts are frequently packed with photographs of their three children, Addison, Avery, and Andrew, participating in various activities, including Avery singing. Andrew Sansone, Banderas’ spouse, was not seen much.
In March, Sansone, a financial expert, filed for divorce. The couple continued to live together, but clashed more frequently while their divorce was litigated. Banderas revealed their breakup on her Twitter account on December 9, stating her spouse would be her’soon to be ex,’ in response to a fan who told her the pair had left them in’stitches,’ according to the Daily Mail.
Five days later, there was an incident in which Sansone reportedly threatened Banderas with a knife.
According to a police complaint obtained by the UK’s Daily Mail, Sansone, who is soon to be Banderas’ ex-husband, reportedly brandished a knife at his wife during a Dec. 14 altercation at their Hamptons residence. According to the publication, the pair battled all day about bills and money, as well as their imminent divorce, according to the police report.
When the evening approached, Sansone, 55, reportedly became irritated with his wife after she ate some mashed potatoes he had prepared for the couple’s three children.
