Born on 20 August 1962 Tammy possess mixed ethnicity and is of Italian and Scottish descent. The actress describes herself as a bisexual, however, identifies her as a lesbian in order to make her sexuality clear. 

The Fox's anchor is more in the news for her political stance and controversial remarks than her love life, but that doesn't mean she has never been into any relationship. She previously dated late actress Brenda Benet.

Tammy's Girlfriend Brenda Benet's Death Left Her Traumatized

Tammy was in a relationship with Days of Our Lives actress Brenda Benet in the 1970s and 80s. Tammy worked as a personal secretary to the actress and later became her girlfriend. 

Brenda came to Tammy after her divorce with former husband actor Bill Bixby in 1980. She had already welcomed her first child a son, Christopher Sean Bixby in 1974 with Bill. She was focused on raising up her son in the right way and even retired from the showbiz to bring her son up. But she was unaware of the misfortune that was to shatter her into pieces.

After the divorce, Brenda had to face a huge tragedy in 1981 when her only son Christopher died during a winter ski vacation in Mammoth Lakes, California. Her son had caught a severe cold and developed epiglottitis, which ultimately served as the cause of his death. 

Brenda was charred by her son's death and slipped into depression and drugs. Despite umpteenth efforts from Tammy to help Brenda overcome the grief of her divorce and loss of a son, Brenda's situation did not improve.

On 7 April 1982, Tammy went for a planned lunch with Brenda at the house they shared in Mandeville Canyon in Los Angeles. But on reaching the house, she found Brenda locked inside the bathroom. Instantly fearing the worst, Tammy came out to ask for help. However, the moment she stepped out of the house, Brenda shot herself in the head and died of the injuries. 

Ever since her ill-fated romance with Brenda, Tammy has never been in a relationship with any other. Maybe the burden of Brenda's death could be a big factor in her decision to remain single.

Tammy might take forever to let go her tormenting past before she finally decides to sprout a new relationship. But she has not delayed in taking over her profession all over. Losing her love to a tragedy haunts her perhaps but she has no fear in putting her points straight; be it in speaking against Hillary Clinton's statement. 

The story comes from a tweet that Tammy posted on 10 October 2018 inlining to the comments fellow journalist Kimberley Strassel made in her Twitter. They both teamed up to obliterate Hillary Clinton's rant regarding civility when she sat down in an interview with CNN's Christine Amanpour om 5 October 2018. 

You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. That's why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that's when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.

Kimberly took on Twitter to reflect upon the matter and Tammy followed on.

Tammy must have got on the nerves of Hillary's supporters. But she knows better than to back off.
