With the upcoming release of the movie Bombshell, a film based on female journalists who set out to expose Fox News CEO, Roger Ailes, viewers are curious about Megyn Kelly, who will be portrayed by Charlize Theron in the highly-anticipated film.
Ever since the journalist's abrupt firing from NBC following her controversial blackface comments in October 2018, people are asking: What is Megyn Kelly doing these days? Scroll down for everything we know about Megyn Kelly today!
What is Megyn Kelly doing these days?
Ever since Megyn left NBC and her eponymous talk show, Megyn Kelly Today, over one year ago, it seems she's been doing her best to take a break from the small screen to enjoy her time with her husband, Douglas Brunt, and their three kids, Yates, Yardley, and Thatcher. Even though many think she has something to do with the new movie Bombshell, she actually took to social media recently to clarify that she does not.
"While the movie Bombshell is loosely based on my experience during the sexual harassment scandal at Fox News, I have nothing to do with this film. I did not sell the rights to my story or book and only got my first look at the film once it was past the point of any possible edits, though there are certainly some I would have made," she previously wrote on Instagram.
But even though Megyn is not currently on the small or big screen after her drama with Fox and NBC, she apparently has not given up her journalism career entirely despite all the hiccups she's faced over the last few years.
In fact, the 49-year-old launched her Instagram account in early November with a video of herself doing an exclusive interview. Between her Instagram account and YouTube channel, she has around 50,000 followers. It appears that she's using the name "The MK Interview" to describe a lot of her segments.
In the interviews and breaking news clips, Megyn's focus seems to be on politics, something she heavily focused on in her past. While at NBC, she was interviewing celebrities and featuring real-life stories on her show. And since Megyn has had a lot of experience as a journalist, fans are curious if she plans to make a triumphant TV return to a mainstream channel, or if she'll settle for conducting interviews solely on her social media.
Luckily for us, she has vocalized her desire to get back in the game. Back in October, Megyn appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight where she was questioned about whether or not she'll be returning to television anytime soon.
"I’ll get back on that horse soon because this has been fun, so I’ll probably get back out there, but right now, I’m still enjoying my day-to-day life with my family and friends," she said at the time. How do you feel about a Megyn Kelly comeback? We're here for it, personally.
