A former Fox News host has filed a lawsuit against the network claiming that former CEO Roger Ailes and current host Bill O’Reilly both subjected her to unwanted sexual advances.

‘Fox News masquerades as a defender of traditional family values, but behind the scenes, it operates like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency and misogyny,’ claims Andrea Tantaros in the lawsuit, which was filed on Monday in New York State Supreme Court.

Tantaros went on to claim in the suit that she was taken off the air when she complained about being sexually harassed by Ailes.

She is now asking for approximately $50 million in the lawsuit, which also names the network’s current co-president Bill Shine, Executive Vice President Dianne Brandi, publicist Irena Briganti and Executive Vice President Suzanne Scott as defendants.

Fox News declined to comment on the allegations being made in the lawsuit due to pending litigation.
