“Julie, I don’t know what your relationship is, it’s none of my business,” Gutfeld said.
“Are you gonna get anything for Valentine’s Day?
“F*** Valentine’s Day,” Banderas responded.
“Yeah, it’s stupid. I mean, even when I was married, I didn’t get s*** for Valentine’s Day,” she said.

“Wait, you’re no longer married?” Gutfeld asked.
“Well, I’m getting a divorce,” she said. “I’m gonna go ahead and say it right here for the first time. Thank you, everyone. Congratulations are in order.”
“If you know me, you’ll clap,” she continued.
“That was breaking news,” she said. “Listen, you don’t have to be a guy to not get s*** on Valentine’s Day … It’s a Hallmark holiday, it’s stupid. It’s just absolutely ridiculous.”
She clarified on Twitter after the show that she isn’t joking about the situation.
I wasn’t kidding. https://t.co/oAKAKo6ch3
