Is Bill O'Reilly Separated From His Wife?

Reported by Ellen - June 5, 2011 -

Gawker has discovered that Bill O'Reilly's wife has purchased a house in her maiden name, Maureen McPhilmy, less than half a mile from the same house she lives or lived in with her husband. She's listed as the sole owner of the new house, he's listed as the sole owner of the original house. Gawker notes that there are lots of possible reasons Mrs. O'Reilly might have made such a purchase other than to live apart from her husband. But voter registration records indicate they may be living separately.

Gawker reports:

McPhilmy has changed her voter registration to the new address, while O'Reilly maintains an active registration at the old house.

There are a number of possible explanations for the transaction. One is that the family recently moved, or is in the process of moving, down the street. They purchased the new home (pictured) under McPhilmy's maiden name to hide from gawkers, O'Reilly hasn't updated his voter registration yet, and the old house is still on the market. Another is that McPhilmy purchased the new home for somebody else—an elderly family member, maybe—to live in but found it advantageous for some reason to take it as her official residence on paper. Another might be that Bill O'Reilly is a loathsome falafel-rubbing lech, and McPhilmy moved out but stayed close by for the sake of their two school-age children.

Or, like many other couples, maybe the marriage just doesn't work any more.
