Jesse Watters is a well-known Fox News host. He hosts a political opinion panel show called The Five. He took time off from the program to deal with an extreme back pain. He was hospitalized for a few days to undergo the treatment for his back problem.
He later returned to the show. But he was unable to perform well on the set due to his injury. Some fans were worried that he might be fired from his job, but it turned out that he was not. He has now recovered from his back surgery and is healthy enough to resume the show.
In an episode of The Five, Jesse Watters confessed that he had threw his back out. He didn’t give the details of the back problem but it is generally understood that he must have sprained or pulled a muscle in his lumbar region. It could have been triggered by lifting a heavy object, over-extending his back while stretching, or twisting his body.
Watters was hospitalized for about four or five days after the incident. During that time, he was given injections to help relieve the pain and discomfort. He was also given a walker and cane to aid his movement. He was able to return to the show on April 25 and said that he didn’t have to go through a back operation.
On the show, he discussed his back problem with individual hosts. He claimed that he threw his back out and had to be moved to the medical clinic by ambulance. During the episode, he also criticized Bill O’Reilly for his inappropriate behavior. He then revealed that he was having an affair with Emma DiGiovine, a Fox News associate producer. He said that he had informed his human resources department about their relationship and that he did not try to hide the fact that they were dating.
The episode generated a lot of controversy. Many of the viewers found it creepy that Watters was dating a younger colleague while still married to his wife. Others pointed out that flattening someone’s tires is a crime as it tampers with a vehicle.
He was hospitalized to get medical attention for his back injury and missed several episodes of The Five. Speculations were rife that he might be sacked or suspended from his job after the controversial comments. But he did not get the chance to explain himself because he had to be taken to the hospital for medical attention. He later apologised for the mistake and assured his viewers that he was not going to be forced out of the job. He also wished his colleagues the best of luck and thanked them for their support.
