17. She rebelled against her scholar dad

Kelly’s father was a liberal professor and an intellectual, and so she grew up with Ph.D. students gathered around, having abstract debates. But Kelly wanted no part of the scholarly life and would eventually quit her job as a lawyer in order to “get her hands dirty.” Sadly, Kelly’s father passed away when she was still in her sophomore year in high school.

16. She likes being a cowgirl

Kelly is apparently fond of the cowgirl life. Indeed, her husband Douglas Brunt has even claimed that her favorite childhood photo of herself sees her dressed in cowgirl gear. What’s more, the host’s idea of a dream vacation is apparently to spend time on a dude ranch.

15. She’s not really a Republican

While Kelly was once one of the biggest names on Fox News, she is – perhaps shockingly – not actually a Republican. In fact, the woman herself is an independent voter, though she admits that many of her political stances skew conservative.
