Brooke Speaks For Survivors of Sexual Assault
On 28 September 2018, Brooke concluded her Friday afternoon program on CNN with a monologue as she expressed her voice to survivors of sexual assault and abuse.
She openly shared the victims' truth in the dusk of Christine Blasey Ford's testimony against American jurist Brett Kavanaugh. While going to the extent of sharing the story of her friend who faced rape and has been in therapy for years, Brooke became teary as she accentuated the story.
Brooke marked it as a pivotal moment in America while emphasizing at the moment that mattered more than politics.
The spiked drink. Waking up on the cold tiles of a hotel bathroom floor. The uncertainty. The shame. The thought, 'I must have somehow brought this on myself.' The silence, distrust, and invalidation.
Christine's testimony moved several Americans and brought different untold stories of survivors from behind the curtains. Brooke's monologue pulled the story of a young woman in her office sharing her story after Christine's hearing.
The talk line of C-Span was flooded with stories of sexual assault survivors that even included a 76-year-old woman whose story of getting molested as a second grader floated everywhere in media.
Brooke Baldwin's Reaction To Her Alleged Husband Rumors
While Brooke has had to fend off lots of comments about her marital life, she expressed amusement after many news portals listed her to be married to Jay David. The funny thing is, neither has Brooke seen her talked up husband nor has she got any connections with him.
The rumors about her supposed husband and marriage petered out after she was reported to be dating British TV producer James Fletcher. The couple met around Christmas 2015 and started dating shortly afterward.
Brooke in an interview with AJC.com stated that James was the perfect partner for her and explained that he was very flexible with her work and even joined her in some assignments. The couple's relation went a level up after Brooke announced in July 2017 that she was engaged. She Instagrammed a photo of the pair cuddling up and wrote,
'Back from vacation. Turns out we went to Hawaii to celebrate more than just my birthday... @jamesfletchernyc asked me to marry him! And I said YES! âÂ¤ï¸Â.'
Barely a year after getting engaged, Brooke tied the knots with her boyfriend turned fiance, James on 6 May 2018.
