"You've called women you don't like 'fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals.'" "Only Rosie O'Donnell." But she also happens to be the biggest rising star the network has seen since the early days of Bill O'Reilly. As her star continues to rapidly rise, we're dishing out some interesting details you may have missed about the host of The Kelly File. Here are some things you didn't know about Megyn Kelly. She's an Independent In a 2015 cover story for Variety, Kelly confirmed that she is a registered Independent. The news came as a bit of a surprise, considering she works for Fox News, which tends to swing decidedly to the Right. She told the magazine, "I have voted for both Democrats and Republicans. I'm not rooting for anybody. I'm a Fox News anchor, and I have no horse in the race. I can give anyone a hard time." She's been married twice Kelly married Dr. Dan Kendall, an anesthesiologist and pain management physician in 2001. They divorced amicably in 2006, according to an interview Kendall gave to The Daily Mail, saying, "I wanted a wife and she wanted a wife—we both needed someone to cook and clean and support us. She has very much a Type A personality. I couldn't imagine her staying at home. She needed more of a Type B husband. Sometimes with two professionals it doesn't work out, we were both working extremely hard and both excelling at what we did." Kelly married her second husband, novelist Douglas Brunt, in 2008. They have three children together: Thatcher, Edward, and Yardley. Oprah is her role model For someone as ambitious and successful as Kelly, it's no wonder that her role model is a powerful woman. Speaking to Vanity Fair in February 2016, Kelly revealed the person she looks up to the most is Oprah Winfrey. "In all her years coming up…she never wallowed in any sort of victimhood…She didn't play the gender card and she didn't play the race card. She was just so good we couldn't ignore her. That's my example … Just get to the table and then do better than everybody else." Former lawyer Although she's a powerful journalist today, Kelly actually began her professional career as a lawyer. Ironically enough, the decision to pursue the law came after she was rejected from Syracuse University's communications program. She pursued political science instead and wound up graduating from Albany Law School. According to Vanity Fair, Kelly admits she had a change of heart about the law while she was on the partner track at a prestigious firm in Chicago, saying, "I had this little voice in me saying, 'I am more interesting than this. I am more interested than this." From that point on, she began to pursue a career in broadcast journalism. Or, as we know it today, professional news bickering. "Those are the facts, but that isn't here or there." "Stop. Stop. No. Stop it. Hold on Richard. Hold on. I'm gonna give you the floor, but you've gotta stay on point." Thanks for watching!
