When a wife trusts her husband entirely, there’s nothing that can break her affection for her better half. Some women are suspicious even when their husband is innocent whereas some stick to their man even after facing bad things about their better half. Such is the case with Roger Ailes’ wife Elizabeth Tilson, whom he married in 1998.
Former Fox News CEO, Roger Ailes was accused of sexual harassment by former Fox Channel correspondent, Gretchen Carlson, but still, his wife is totally on his side. Yes, you read it right, Tilson is supporting her husband fully not considering any words said by Carlson. Read the full story:
On 6th July 2016, Gretchen Carlson filed a sexual harassment suit against FOX CEO Ailes just a few days after her contract with the esteemed network expired.
Carlson, a renowned TV commentator is a gorgeous and talented lady.
When Carlson filed the lawsuit, she stated that she took such a step to stand up for herself and on behalf of the next generation of women in the workplace.
