Her wealth was also elevated thanks to the success of her ex-husband who also had a similar estimated net worth at $1 million. As she continues her endeavors it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Journalism Career
There is very little information about Noelle’s childhood, family, and her education. It is known that she grew up in New York, and developed a strong love for fashion as a child. She also aspired to have a career that would involve her being in front of the camera. After completing her education, she started working with Fox News in the background, on entertainment segments focused on fashion and style. Slowly but surely she rose in the ranks, and was eventually invited to host her own segment on the network called “iMag Style”. The endeavor proved slightly successful as she earned fame, and her confidence in pursuing fashion also increased. However, later on her segment was removed, and she moved on to working in the background for Fox News Channel once more. Her popularity increased again later, when she became associated with Jesse Watters.
Husband – Jesse Watters
Jesse also began his career with Fox News, initially working as a production assistant for the show before finding his way to the production arm of “The O’Reilly Factor” in 2003. The following year he made his on air debut appearing in segments of the show. His career also had a slow pace, but his popularity escalated when he became associated with the show “Outnumbered” in 2014, when he was invited as a guest co-host. The daytime news and talk show features four female panelists with one guest male panelist, which led him to debut in his own monthly program entitled “Watters’ World”. He subsequently gained popularity for being an ambush journalist, often approaching people in surprise scenarios to try and get the most natural responses out of them.
With the success of his program, it was moved to a weekly Saturday spot, plus he became a guest of “The Spin Stops Here Tour”, and was assigned as a co-host of the series “The Five”, which discusses current stories, pop culture and political issues. He’s had his share of controversies, especially surrounding the fact that he was racist towards Asian Americans. This began in 2016 segment of the show when he asked people in New York City’s Chinatown whether or not they knew karate, and if he should bow if he greets them, for which he was heavily criticized by numerous journalists, and even by mayor Bill de Blasio.
Relationship, Marriage, and Divorce
According to reports, Noelle and Jesse met while working at Fox News, and started dating shortly after. While her fame slid a little, and his was increasing, it didn’t really matter to them and they married in 2009. Not many details have been shared about their relationship, but it is known that they had twins in 2011, and there was no apparent problem regarding their relationship for several years until a sudden announcement that she filed for divorce in late-2017.
A few months later, the media caught up with the news, and sources state that she had discovering that her husband was having an affair with 25 year-old producer Emma DiGiovine working on his show. After the divorce papers was filed, he then told the network about his relationship, and to comply with company rules, the producer was transferred to another show entitled “The Ingraham Angle” to preserve both parties’ careers, also preventing any further complications.
Aftermath and Social Media
According to reports, Jesse continued to date the producer even after the transfer though things normalized somewhat as the divorce was eventually finalized. There have been no details as to what Noelle is doing after the divorce, and it is not clear if she continues to work in Fox or has gone her own way. One of the reasons there is very little information about her past and current endeavors is due to a lack of any strong online presence. She does not have any accounts on any of the major social media websites; Facebook contains a number of users that share a similar name, but are not related to her in any way, or their names have different spellings.
Her ex-husband on the other hand is very active online, which is common when it comes to numerous broadcasters and correspondents. He has accounts on websites such as Twitter and Facebook, on which he posts a few personal photos with fellow television personalities on Fox. He also promotes his show “Watters World” consistently, and follows numerous items featured on his show, and in Fox News. He has stayed away from talking about his personal life and is focused more on his professional endeavors, attempting to put past controversies behind him.
