Who is Shelley Ross? Wiki, Biography, Age, Husband, Kids, Family

Shelley Ross is an Author, Director, Producer, Television and Media Executive, and an Award-Winning Broadcast Journalist. Lately, Shelley Ross accused Chris Cuomo of sexual harassment while she was working as the executive producer at ABC in 2005, and it’s been 16 years now this event took place but now Ross came forward and accused Chirs. Many wondering why Shelley came forward now? Well, she has an answer to that, she said after how Chris responded to the sexual harassment scandal that covered his brother, Andrew Cuomo. In an op-ed for the New York Times, Shelley published this unexpected incident to which Chris stated, “As Shelley acknowledges, our interaction was not sexual in nature. It happened 16 years ago in a public setting when she was a top executive at ABC. I apologized to her then, and I meant it.”

Shelley Ross in an op-ed for the New York Times said “I was at the party with my husband, who sat behind me on an ottoman sipping his Diet Coke as I spoke with work friends. When Mr. Cuomo entered the Upper West Side bar, he walked toward me and greeted me with a strong bear hug while lowering one hand to firmly grab and squeeze the cheek of my buttock,” and then she continued “My husband, who had seen the entire episode at close range. We quickly left.” Later, Ross to the same publication asked Chris Cuomo that “Soon after, I received the email from Mr. Cuomo about being ‘ashamed.’ He should have been. But my question today is the same as it was then: Was he ashamed of what he did, or was he embarrassed because my husband saw it?.” Moreover, Ross said she does not want Cuomo to lose his job “I’m not asking for Mr. Cuomo to become the next casualty in this continuing terrible story. I hope he stays at CNN forever if he chooses,” and added I would, however, like to see him journalistically repent: agree on air to study the impact of sexism, harassment and gender bias in the workplace, including his own, and then report on it.”
