Gretchen Carlson is getting her own daytime show on Fox News, but appearing on former co-host Brian Kilmeade’s radio show Thursday brought back memories of her time in captivity. “Pants were not allowed on Fox & Friends, remember?” the jeans-clad Carlson recalled. Presumably this rule was for the ladies, but she noted Kilmeade “always liked to be shirtless.” Lest anyone think this was some kind of show of solidarity against the sexist Fox News dress code, Carlson added, “And sometimes you actually suggested that for me.”
