Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer hosts the network’s 3 p.m. hour in a new show called Bill Hemmer Reports.
Hemmer, who has been with Fox News since 2005, was chosen to permanently fill the midafternoon slot after former anchor Shepard Smith abruptly resigned in October 2019.
The announcement about Hemmer’s new role, which was made public in December, immediately piqued interest in his personal life. Hemmer, at 55 years old, is not married and does not appear to be in a steady romantic relationship. Hemmer keeps his social media accounts primarily focused on work and shares few personal tidbits.
Here’s what you need to know.
Bill Hemmer Previously Dated Model Dara Tomanovich For Eight Years
Bill Hemmer’s longest public relationship appears to have been with Canadian model Dara Tomanovich. The couple was together for about 8 years, from 2005 until 2013.
Tomanovich was born in Toronto in 1969. According to her IMDB profile, Tomanovich attracted attention during a visit to Paris when she was 18. She met with German designer Karl Lagerfeld, who hired her to serve as the face of the French luxury fashion house, Chloe. Tomanovich lived in Paris for about five years, during which she modeled for L’Oreal, British Vogue and Marie Claire. According to her Instagram account, Tomanovich is still working as a model and is represented by the B&M Models agency.
Tomanovich made headlines in 2014, after she and Hemmer had broken up, for a less-than-flattering reason. She was arrested and charged for driving under the influence of alcohol in June of 2014. Page Six reported at the time that Tomanovich had crashed her Porsche in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan and tried to talk her way out of being arrested. She reportedly told an officer that she knew former Mayor Michael Bloomberg and she could have the officer “fired or transferred.”
Page Six included at the end of the article, “The brunette beauty dated Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer for a long time, but was spotted last month with Britain’s Prince Andrew at the Royal Ascot races.”
Hemmer Sat With President Trump’s Ex-Wife, Marla Maples, & Donald Trump Jr During a Fashion Show In February 2019
Bill Hemmer appears to know President Donald Trump’s second wife, Marla Maples. He was photographed sitting next to her during New York Fashion Week on February 13, 2019. Maples and President Trump were married between 1993 and 1999 and share daughter Tiffany.
Seated on the other side of Hemmer was his former Fox News colleague Kimberly Guilfoyle. She previously co-hosted The Five but left the network in July of 2018. She has been dating Donald Trump, Jr. since at least April of 2018, following his split from wife Vanessa.
Vanity Fair at the time reported that these four were sitting next to each other, but did not speculate about who Hemmer had come to the show with. For the piece, Hemmer actually merited only a simple mention. The magazine honed in on the fact that Trump Jr. and Maples were sitting “close enough to look like they’re a part of one big party, and far enough away that she could convincingly avoid eye contact.”
Hemmer and Guilfoyle have known each other for several years. In 2004, while Hemmer was still working at CNN, they were photographed together at a New York City event. She was married to first husband Gavin Newsom, the current governor of California, at the time.
Bill Hemmer Posts Photos Alongside His Female Colleagues, But Does Not Appear to Have Shared Any Photos That Would Hint to a Girlfriend
If Bill Hemmer is in a romantic relationship, then he is doing a superb job of keeping it very much on the down-low. Hemmer’s Instagram account is focused on work and photos alongside his Fox News colleagues. For example, the photo above was snapped on-set with his America’s Newsroom co-anchor Sandra Smith. A fan commented that the “chemistry between the two of you is amazing” but Smith is married.
Hemmer also shared a costumed picture with former colleague Megyn Kelly. The picture was posted in August of 2014.
