Fox News has taken reporter Ed Henry off the air—at least for the time being—after reports of an affair with a Las Vegas hostess surfaced this week, Politico reports. Henry has been Fox News' chief White House correspondent since 2011. In Touch Weekly was the first to report the affair. Natalia Lima says she met Henry on social media shortly after his 2010 marriage to an NPR editor. She says it turned physical 10 months ago. “Whenever he was in town, we would pretty much just have sex," Lima says. "He has a really high sex drive."
“We recently became aware of Ed’s personal issues and he’s taking some time off to work things out,” Politico quotes a Fox News spokesperson as saying. It's unclear if or when Henry will rejoin the network. In a similar situation, NBC fired Chris Hansen in 2013 over reports of an affair. (Read more Ed Henry stories.)
