Who is Stuart Varney’s current wife?
Varney’s present marital status seems to be single, and there have been no reports of the talk show host being married to anyone as of this moment. Moreover, it remains unknown whether or not he is dating a girlfriend.
To conclude, there are no details of Varney’s current wife as he isn’t married at the time. However, his marital status wasn’t the same in the past as he was living a life as a married man for over two decades.
Varney was formerly in a marital relationship with his now ex-wife Deborah Varney. As per The Sun, the then-married couple first met each other at a pub in 1992 and eventually started dating. Stuart had no problem with his partner’s middle-class upbringing.
Within a year of being in a relationship, in 1993, the pair shared the wedding vows. The wedding ceremony was kept small and intimate, with only close friends and immediate family members invited.
Since then, the married duo was relishing the time of their lives, and everything was going fine in their marital relationship until Deborah found her husband’s secret.
Deborah Varney filed for divorce in 2014
After being married for more than two decades, 21 years to be precise, Deborah filed for divorce from Stuart. And she did so after learning that her husband had been unfaithful and was having an affair with a Florida-based woman named Jennifer F Shibley for nine years.
As per The Sun, Deborah mentioned in her divorce complaint that Stuart was living a double life with his mistress as he spent “hundreds of thousands of dollars” on Shibley and took her to places like Singapore, Hong Kong, Hawaii, and Macau.

In the divorce complaint filed in Bergen County, Deborah had also quoted a line that Stuart told her when she confronted him about his affair. She had quoted, “When I was with you, I did not think about her, and when I was with her, I did not think about you.”
Additionally, Stuart had insisted to Deborah that he “was not in love” with Shibley; however, he cheated on Deborah because he “could do it.”
Stuart and Deborah’s divorce seemed to be finalized quickly and settled down without making any public fuss as there aren’t many details available about the case.
Stuart Varney and Deborah Varney are parents to six children
In their 21-year-long marital relationship, Stuart and Deborah welcomed six children; four sons and two daughters. However, the couple has kept most details about their kids hidden from the outside world.
As of this writing, only the names of their two daughters are known, and they are Jill Varney Meyer and Angela Varney. Jill made one public appearance in January 2015, when she won $25,000 on the Travel Channel’s gameshow Hotel Showcase.
Stuart was proud of his daughter’s win as he bragged about it on his show. At the time, Jill was running a Chatham, Massachusetts-based hotel named The Captains House Inn.
Coming over to Stuart and Deborah’s other daughter, Angela, she is following her father’s footsteps and is working in the news industry. She made her TV debut while forecasting weather as a guest on Fox & Friends in July 2017.
On April 25, 2019, she shared the news screen alongside her father on the occasion of Take Your Kids to Work Day. During that segment, Stuart reflected a bit on the occasion and his daughter’s work on Fox Nation. It’s reported that she still works at Fox Nation.
Besides his six kids, Stuart is also a grandfather to 10 grandchildren. Several media outlets have mentioned that five of those ten grandchildren are from Jill’s marriage. But, it’s yet to be confirmed.
