Geraldo Rivera is a 78-year-old lawyer, journalist, and political commentator who is often on Fox News. He was the host of the tabloid talk shows Geraldo on the Paramount network for 11 years, from 1987 to 1998. But the show got bad reviews because of its controversial guests and dramatic performances.
He became more well-known after the live TV show The Mystery of Al Capone’s Vaults, which revealed that Capone had hidden vaults under the old Lexington Hotel in Chicago. Rivera also hosted the news show Geraldo at Large and the show Geraldo Rivera Reports from time to time.
This 77-year-old TV personality has been around the block, both personally and professionally. He hosted his own (often controversial) daytime talk show for 11 years and now works as a conservative political commentator for Fox News. He has been married more than once, and he is now married to a woman who is many years younger than him. Here is everything you need to know about Geraldo Rivera’s wife, Erica Michelle Levy.
Meet Geraldo Rivera’s Current Wife, Erica Levy
Erica Levy was born in Shaker Heights, Ohio, in the United States, on January 30, 1975. She is Howard and Nancy Levy’s daughter. Her dad worked at a law firm in Cleveland. He died in 2007. Her mother taught new parents how to raise children as part of the Bright Beginnings program. Joshua is Erica’s brother. He is co-chairman of the global Litigation and Enforcement practice group at the Boston law firm Ropes & Gray LLP.
Erica Michelle Levy got her Bachelor of Arts in Communications from the University of Wisconsin in Madison. She moved to New York City and got a job as a producer at NBCUniversal. This helped her become a better journalist.
Inside Geraldo And Erica’s Relationship: The Couple Has 32 Years Age Gap
Geraldo met Erica when she started working on his CNBC show, Rivera Live, as a producer in 2001. After two years, they got married. She was 28 years old, and he was 60. Their age difference didn’t seem to bother them, and after nearly 20 years of marriage, it was clear that they were meant to be together.
One of the most interesting things about their relationship is that they have very different political views. Geraldo is a Republican (and a close friend of Donald Trump), while Erica is a staunch Democrat.
One might think that their different opinions would make their relationship fall apart, but luckily, this isn’t the case. In an interview with Cleveland news station WKYC in 2019, Geraldo said, “Our family is a unit, and we give each other room to disagree on politics.”
Geraldo And Erica Has One Daughter
Geraldo has three children from his past relationships. He and Erica have a 16-year-old daughter named Solita Liliana, who goes by the nickname “Sol.” Erica grew up in Shaker Heights, which is a nice suburb of Cleveland and where her family lives. They live in a house that is 7,870 square feet and has an indoor pool.
“When Erica was a kid, it was her dream house,” Geraldo told Cleveland.com. She lived in Hermitage and went to schools run by the Shakers. Our daughter goes to nearby schools.”
Geraldo Has Been Married Five Times
Before he met Erica, Geraldo had been married four times. He got married to Linda Coblentz in 1965, and they split up in 1969. Edith Vonnegut, the daughter of famous writer Kurt Vonnegut and a painter, married him in 1971, but they broke up four years later.
On the last day of 1976, on New Year’s Eve, he married Sherryl Raymond. In 1979, Gabriel Miguel, their son, was born. In 1984, he split up with Raymond, and in 1987, he married C.C. Dyer. That marriage lasted until 2000 and gave birth to two daughters, Isabella, who is 29 years old, and Simone, who is 26 years old.
