NEW YORK, NY – A bombshell for the FOX News Family, it has major drama to sort through.

Big time news anchor Gretchen Carlson is suing the network’s CEO and chairman, Roger Ailes, for sexual harassment.

The actions were enough for her to say goodbye to her gig at FOX News.

In the lawsuit, Carlson accuses the 76-year-old television executive of making “sexual and sexist comments” and “sexual advances by various means.”

Carlson’s attorney says the advances were “very consistent and very pervasive.”

In September, Carlson says Ailes told her, “I think you and I should have had a sexual relationship a long time ago and the you’d be good and better and I’d be good and better.”

The complaint says when Carlson didn’t play along, Ailes retaliated by moving her from the flagship morning show to the 2 p.m. hour.

The former Miss America says the decision to sue was not easy.

In a statement, Carlson says she “had to stand up for myself and speak out for all women and the next generation of women in the work place.”

Even though Ailes is a communication mogul, he has not yet responded to the allegations.
