Former Fox News host Andrea Tantaros has just sent out an affidavit bolstering her harassment case against former Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes.
Fox settled lawsuits by Gretchen Carlson and two other women making harassment allegations, but Tantaros’ case is still ongoing. Tantaros claims her being pulled off Fox’s airwaves was a retaliatory move after she complained about harassment.
Fox responded by calling her an “opportunist.”
Well, today Tantaros has released an affidavit from a therapist she was seeing, who said that the former The Five and Outnumbered host talked about being on the receiving end of sexual harassment from Ailes two years ago:

Michele Berdy, who says she reached out to Tantaros and not vice versa, includes this recollection:
“I also recall a number of occasions when Andrea complained to me about recurring unwanted advances from Bill O’Reilly, which included an invitation to his ‘very private’ beach home, and comments about his perception that she was ‘wild.'”
UPDATE – 04:07 EDT – Statement from a Fox News Spokesperson: “We stand by our earlier motion to compel arbitration.”
