What Is Andrea Tantaros Doing Now and Is She Married?

Fox News Channel viewers will fondly remember Andrea Tantaros as the conservative political analyst and commentator who was one of the original co-hosts of the second-most-watched program in cable news in 2013, The Five. She was also a co-host of the daytime news and talk show, Outnumbered. Things, however, did not end smoothly between the Pennsylvania native and her employers as she sued the network over claims of sexual harassment. Tantaros has since that time been embroiled in a long legal battle that has seen her represent herself in court despite having no formal legal training.

Early Life and Education

Andrea Tantaros was born on the 30th of September 1978 in Allentown, Pennsylvania to a Greek immigrant father and a mother who is of Italian descent. The young girl, who worked in the family-owned Pied Piper Diner while growing up, received her early education at Parkland High School. She subsequently went on to attend Lehigh University where she obtained a degree in French and Journalism.

Following her graduation, Tantaros landed an internship with CNN, working on the network’s Crossfire program. She would later go on to work as a spokeswoman for Massachusetts Governor William Weld. She also performed in the same capacity for Congressman Pat Toomey and former National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman, Thomas Reynolds.

In between these roles, Andrea Tantaros earned a master’s degree from the Sorbonne in Paris, France.

Her Time With Fox and Why She Left The Network

Of a fact, Andrea Tantaros enjoyed the best time of her career with the Fox News Channel. She joined the cable television news channel in April 2010 as a political contributor but soon later began taking up hosting responsibilities.

For about a year, Tantaros carried out her duties as a political contributor with all diligence and dedication. Her good work eventually caught the attention of top management who in 2011 promoted her by naming her as a co-host of the newly created panel talk show, The Five. Topics on issues relating to pop culture, politics, and lifestyle were discussed on the show that soon became very popular and was one of the most-watched programs on cable news in less than two years on the air.

In 2014, Andrea Tantaros was made a co-host on another show called Outnumbered. She viewed this as a demotion and a petty act of revenge by the network following her decision to initiate formal complaints of sexual harassment against then Fox CEO, Roger Ailes. In April 2016, Tantaros was totally taken off air for what her employers simply cited as “Contract Issues”. This prompted her to file a lawsuit against the network claiming wrongful termination. She also claimed that several of her male colleagues like Bill O’Reilly made inappropriate comments to her while adding that the network also spied on its employees. Her case was eventually thrown out by a Judge over a lack of factual support.

What Has She Been Upto?

After her relationship with Fox News came to an end, very little has been heard about Andrea Tantaros in regards to what she does to make a living. One of the few things known about her after her time with Fox is that she released a book in 2016 titled Tied Up in Knots: How Getting What We Wanted Made Women Miserable.

The book was edited by author and media personality Michael Krechmer who would later go on to file a lawsuit against Tantaros claiming that he ghostwrote the book and was not paid the full amount of money that was agreed upon to do so. His lawsuit was, however, dismissed, prompting him to appeal the dismissal which he also lost.

Other than her work in releasing and promoting her book, it is believed that Tantaros devouts most of her time to the running of her crisis management and media strategy consulting firm, Andrea Tantaros Media.

What We Know About Her Love Life

Andrea Tantaros is not married but she is reportedly in a relationship with Dave Navarro, a guitarist for the rock band Jane Addiction. Dave was previously a member of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and has also performed in Jane’s Addiction spin-off bands like The Panic Channel and Deconstruction. Outside of music, he serves as the host and one of the judges on the American tattoo competition reality show, Ink Master.

Dave, who is way older than Tantaros as he was born on the 7th of June 1967, started dating her in 2015 after they met through a mutual friend. It is not clear if the two are still together but it is important to mention that Dave is a divorcee who has been married three times in the past. His most famous marriage was to actress Carmen Electra. They were together from 2003 to 2007.
