Gretchen Carlson Talks Faith and 'Getting Real'


Gretchen Carlson is the host of "Real Story" on Fox News. She brings the top news headlines of the day to a national audience.

Recently CBN News' Wendy Griffith spoke with Carlson about her personal story. The former Miss America shared what inspired her to write her new book, Getting Real.

In it, Carlson shares her struggle with being stereotyped because of the way she looks.
"When people don't want to debate you about the tough issues, it's just easier to call you a dumb blonde," Carlson told CBN News.

"I don't worry about this for myself, my skin got thick a long time ago. I write about these things in the book as inspiration for young people," she added.

Carlson, who was raised Lutheran, said her Christian faith helped shape her into the woman she is today.

"As a journalist you're supposed to ask a lot of questions. It's the one thing I don't question in life, and I feel so blessed that I don't," she said about her faith.
