EXCLUSIVE: Finding yourself on the wrong side of aspiring Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Rising cable news star Megyn Kelly has just signed with Creative Artists Agency. She anchors Fox News Channel’s The Kelly File, and her show is the No. 2-rated cable news program. She got big ratings for her exclusive interview with 19 Kids And Counting‘s Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar at the height of their scandal, and her profile has especially grown since she moderated the first debate between Republican candidates and braced Trump for his penchant for referring to women who displease him as “fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals.” Her willingness to ask tough questions made her one of the storylines of the GOP debate. While Trump was fast on his feet in deflecting the blow with humor, he didn’t help himself when he went on another show and called Kelly names and complained that, “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her…whatever.”
She has begun looking to expand in other areas and starts that by teaming with Kevin Spacey to produce The Residence, a scripted White House series project based on the book by Kate Andersen Brower.
Kelly had been repped by N.S. Bienstock and you can see her electric exchange with Trump below.
