Fox News’ Megyn Kelly and Brit Hume never slept together but Megyn Kelly, of Fox’s “The Kelly File” knows the value of a hot rumor to encourage visitors to check you out when you are just getting started. When Fox executives were ready to douse cold water on the rumor, a tongue-in-cheek Meg quipped, “Well, do you have to tamp it down right away?”
Now expecting her second baby in April, it’s more than a rumor that Megyn is looking hot in the new GQ magazine layout which should be on the shelves of bookstores this week. Really, it could be said, Megyn Kelly is one “Hot Mama” and not a surprise that she is looking forward to spending her down time with her new little “buddy”. There’s a great video on the sidebar where Meg joyfully announces she’s pregnant. You won’t want to miss it.
The first glimpses of the layout show a sultry Megyn, sizzling in black. Kelly sizzles in the interview as well, always with a clever come-back and that touch of natural humor that make her such a loved anchor on Fox News.

Transcribed highlights from the interview by GQ’s Greg Veis for the December issue titled “She Reports, We Decide She’s Hot.” follow:
You once worked as a lawyer for a while, but once you became a reporter, you quickly reached the big time at Fox:
I sent my tape to Kim Hume, and she called me in the next day. While we were talking, her husband Brit Hume, swung by the office and said, “Saw your tape Loved it. How soon can we get you up to New York?” And I was like, I love him.
There were rumors about you two. He was psyched that people thought you were sleeping together, apparently.
I think Brit knew how preposterous it was to anyone with two nickels in between their ears. The first thing he said at his retirement dinner – this big affair down in D.C. with Vice President Cheney, fred Thompson, Brian Williams – was “I haven’t been this honored since that rumor abougt me having an affair with Megyn Kelly went around.”
And then he said, “I remember when that rumor first came out and the Fox PR people called me and said, “We have to tamp this down.” And I said,” Well, do you have to tamp it down right away?” (For more check out TVNewser and in the December issue of GQ)
