Rachel Campos-Duffy The Real World: San Francisco
She joined the cast of The Real World: San Francisco in January 1994 and resided in the Russian Hill house in San Francisco with her six housemates from February 12 to June 19. The season premiered on July 6, 1994. While the castmates were informed in advance that they would be living with someone who had HIV, they were not told which housemate it was.
Additionally, on the cast’s first night in the house, Campos’ housemate, AIDS educator Pedro Zamora, informed the housemates that he had AIDS by showing them the scrapbook of his career as an HIV educator. Campos felt uncomfortable and initially distanced herself from Zamora, stating that she wanted to know how his health status would affect her. However, she said nothing to the other housemates for fear of appearing homophobic.
Rachel Campos-Duffy high-maintenance twins
Although Zamora took this as an act of rejection on her part, the two eventually became friends, with Zamora traveling to Arizona with Campos to visit her family. During her time on the series, she had both a romantic relationship and a tumultuous friendship with housemate David “Puck” Rainey. Fellow cast member Judd Winick attributed this attraction on her part to her taste for rebellious men, or “bad boys”.
Campos conceded this and admitted that she was sometimes an initially bad judge of character, and too trusting. Additionally, Campos’ friendship with Rainey eventually dissolved, as did Rainey’s friendship with the rest of the cast, resulting in his eviction. Campos subsequently became best friends with Rainey’s replacement, Joanna Rhodes, and the two of them were referred to by Winick as “high-maintenance twins”.
Rachel Campos-Duffy The View
She tried out three times for a co-host spot on the daytime television talk show The View. After Debbie Matenopoulos left the show in 1999, Campos competed in an on-air try-out with Lisa Ling and Lauren Sánchez. Ling was eventually hired. After Ling’s departure in 2002, Campos—who by then held her own “coffee talk” show with other Wisconsin housewives again competed in a week-long on-air try-out.
This time against Erin Hershey Presley and Elisabeth Hasselbeck. In November 2003 Hasselbeck was hired to replace Ling. In July 2013 when Hasselbeck left The View to replace Gretchen Carlson as the female co-host of Fox & Friends, Campos once again tried out but Jenny McCarthy was hired to fill the spot.
Rachel Campos-Duffy Fox News
On June 21, 2018, during an appearance on the Fox News program The Ingraham Angle, Campos-Duffy defended the Trump administration’s controversial practice of separating immigrant families arrested crossing the US border. Speaking of the facilities where the children were housed, she said, “The detention centers are far safer than the journey that these children just came on, and I will say this…people aren’t ignorant. I spoke to some who say, ‘Gosh, the conditions of the detention centers are better than some of the projects that I grew up in.'”
The comments drew immediate criticism, including from black Vox reporter Jane Coaston, New York Times Magazine writer Nikole Hannah-Jones, Britni Danielle of Essence magazine, and filmmaker Ava DuVernay. In 2017, Campos-Duffy praised Republican congressional candidate Greg Gianforte of Montana for physically assaulting Ben Jacobs, a reporter for The Guardian. The incident occurred when Gianforte grabbed Jacobs, threw him to the ground, and punched him after Jacobs tried to interview him about the Republican health care plan, which Campos-Duffy called “Montana justice”.
Rachel Campos-Duffy Fox & Friends Weekend
After Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election against President Donald Trump, Campos-Duffy claimed that there had been “fraud and shenanigans” in the election. In May 2021 Campos-Duffy was hired as a permanent co-host on Fox & Friends Weekend. On August 22, 2021, Campos-Duffy criticized President Joe Biden for the Taliban retaking of Afghanistan, blaming his “mental state” for the event. She also blamed First Lady Jill Biden for saying that she failed the country by allowing her husband to run for president.
Jill Biden’s press secretary Michael LaRosa, responded the following day, calling the comments “disgusting” and saying that know better. They can do better and their viewers deserve better. I hope they’ll apologize to the First Lady and leave this kind of talk where it belongs.” On March 14, 2022, Campos-Duffy stated that the United States provoked Russia’s invasion of Ukraine the month prior, a point with which her co-host, Brian Kilmeade, disagreed.
