Who is Jill Rhodes?
Jill Rhodes is a news personality, writer, and editor. The University of Alabama graduate’s first job came when the Huntsville Times hired her. She was brought on as a columnist and political writer. A gradual rise in the industry eventually led to her discovery by WVNN. Interestingly enough, it was her future husband who did the discovering. He was working at the company’s radio station.
The two started working together on various stories. However, at the time, their communication was limited to voice mails and phone calls. They eventually covered a highly contentious mayoral debate in Huntsville together. Sean Hannity’s wife later moved to New York with the rest of her family. Here, she got a job as a book editor in Manhattan. She edited several books before eventually deciding to retire.

Life as Sean Hannity’s Wife.
The former Huntsville Time’s writer met Sean back in 1991. At the time, she was still green in the industry but showing a lot of potentials. Her husband-to-be picked up on this and reached out to her.
The two started partnering up and working together on different stories. Surprisingly, they only communicated through phone calls. They did not meet until much later when they both had to cover a high-profile event.
Their attraction was instant, as they shared a lot of common interests, notwithstanding, a common political affiliation. A wedding followed soon after, much to no-one’s surprise. The two walked down the aisle back in 1993, with their loved ones in attendance.
The couple’s son Patrick was born in 1999 in Alabama. Presently, he is set to turn 21 years old. His sister, Merri Kelly, followed three years after him. She is an up and coming pro-tennis player who just turned eighteen. Jill Rhodes and her husband have been married for 27 years. Their marriage has had its fair share of problems.
Back in 2013, sources claimed that the two were on the verge of getting a divorce. At the time, it was rumored that Sean had caught the eye of a few other women. However, the 50-years of transformation writer chose to stick by her man.
Four years on, and her loyalty was tested again. A political analyst named Debbie Schlussel accused her husband of sexual misconduct. In her statement, Sean Hannity had allegedly asked her to come to his hotel room. Debbie refused, after which she was never welcomed back on the show.
The Huntsville Columnist stood by her husband again. Notably, Debbie took back most of her accusation, and Sean, subsequently, did not face any backlash.
