Jill Rhodes is an American journalist who is married to Sean Hannity, a Republican political analyst and talk show presenter. When she first got a phone call from Hannity in 1991, Rhodes, an Alabama native, was working as a political columnist for the ‘Huntsville Times.’ He used to broadcast a show on WVNN radio and would frequently phone her to beg story ideas. In 1992, they met for the first time in person, and a year later, they married. She’s been with him for the bulk of his journalistic career, offering him assistance from behind the scenes. Hannity dedicated his 2002 book ‘Let Freedom Ring: Winning the War of Liberty Over Liberalism’ to his wife and children, a man who cannot say enough about his essential principles of faith, family, and country.
The Ascension to Notoriety
Jill Rhodes is a journalism graduate of the University of Alabama. He used to send her hilarious and regular voicemail messages in the months between initially talking to Hannity on the phone and seeing him in person. She was intrigued enough to attend a Huntsville mayoral debate he hosted in 1992. “I glanced at his face and said, ‘That is the man I’m going to marry,'” she told ‘People’ magazine in 2002. They tied the knot in 1993. She worked as a book editor in Manhattan for a while when they moved to New York.
In April 2017, while Fox News was embroiled in a sexual harassment crisis that resulted in the retirement of former CEO Roger Ailes and star conservative political commentator Bill O’Reilly, Hannity was accused of inappropriate behavior by conservative blogger Debbie Schlussel. Schussel stated in a radio appearance with KFAQ in Tulsa that Hannity had requested her to accompany him back to his hotel following a broadcast on which she appeared as a political expert. She further claimed that Fox News has blacklisted her as a result of her unwillingness to do so. Hannity fiercely refuted the charges, describing them as defamation and threatening legal action if they were true. There were rumors of a probable split between him and Rhodes after that, but they were false.
A month later, Hannity was chastised once more for being one of the most vocal proponents of the conspiracy theory that Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party had DNC staffer Seth Rich assassinated. Following that, he and Rhodes became victims of one of the long-running online frauds that sell their products with bogus celebrity endorsements. According to the ad, Hannity was in danger of losing his job because he persisted in airing the news despite being warned not to.
The report reportedly claimed that the hysteria had prompted investigators to check into the finances of the entire Hannity family, exposing “Jill’s multi-million dollar secret.” The secret was that she had created Nouveau Restor Revitalizing Moisturizer, a “plastic surgery alternative.” In an emailed reply to ‘The Daily Beast,’ Hannity later asserted that such charges were “all lies.”
