Here’s an Old Ed Henry Live Shot From Where His Torrid Affair Allegedly Took Place

Today, In Touch Weekly published its newest edition that features salacious details of the alleged affair between Fox News’ Ed Henry and a Las Vegas waitress named Natalia Lima. Henry, who has been married to NPR’s Shirley Hung since 2010, has been covering the 2016 campaign as the network’s Chief White House Correspondent, and details broke this morning about his 10-month affair.

Lima’s tell-all to In Touch includes very specific details regarding the relationship, and the print edition of the magazine includes screenshots of text messages reportedly shared between the two.

In October, Ed Henry was live in Las Vegas — where he and his wife own a high-rise condo that was prominently featured in an episode of Property Man with Bob Massi — to cover the first Democratic presidential debate (to put this in perspective, the names Martin O’Malley, Jim Webb, and Lincoln Chafee are all mentioned here). For his live shot, Henry broadcasted live from the site of that debate: the illustrious Wynn Las Vegas hotel and casino.

It just so happens that according to Lima, that’s also where, “we would pretty much just have sex.”

From In Touch‘s story today:

But then [Henry and Lima] started to meet up at… Wynn casino when Ed — who is married — was in town for work or to golf. “We’d have drinks and he was kinda flirty, you know? I never expected anything to happen.” Then, in the spring of 2015, it did. “He was staying at the Wynn and asked, ‘Do you want to come up to my room?’ I wasn’t really interested like that, but I did go up there,” she says, “and on thing led to another.”

They had sex that night. Natalia says her affair with the 44-year-old broadcaster, who’s been crisscrossing the country covering the U.S. presidential campaign, continued for the next 10 months…

Natalia says many of their encounters took place at the Wynn. Ed, who also owns a condo in town, often stayed there. “He would go to the Wynn store and buy champagne and condoms called Sir Richard’s. The box said ‘The Wynn’ on it.”

Strangely, at the end of the live report from Henry in October, Fox News’ Bill Hemmer ominously mentions, “Ed Henry, in Vegas, a town he knows well… behave,” he tells his peer.

In a statement provided to Mediaite, a Fox News spokesperson said, “We recently became aware of Ed’s personal issues and he’s taking some time off to work things out.”
