Not long after, she also took up a job as a photo editor for Maxim Russia. This is a multinational fashion brand and magazine with branches in Germany, Russia, the UK, and many more countries.

He finished from Junípero Serra High School and earned a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1987.
They had met when Gutfeld was an editor for Maxim magazine in the UK between 2004 and 2006. They were married in 2004, not long after they started dating. Here is a bit more about Moussa’s husband.
Gutfeld started his career working as an intern at The American Spectator, as an assistant to conservative writer R. Emmett Tyrrell. He later became a staff writer at Prevention magazine and edited various Rodale Press magazines.
He joined Men’s Health as a staff writer in 1995 and was editor-in-chief by 1999, four years later. In 2005, he was one of the first contributors to the newly formed blog, The Huffington Post, and left in 2008.
However, by 2007, he was already hosting the late-night talk show “Red Eye” on the Fox News Channel. In 2011, he also added co-host and panellist on the Fox News political talk show “The Five” to his resume. When Gutfeld left “Red Eye” in 2015, he got his own Fox News late-night show called “The Greg Gutfeld Show”. The show became known as just “Gutfeld!” in 2021 and it is available on YouTube.
Additionally, he has appeared as a guest on “Coffee with Scott Adams” and “The Adam Carolla Show”.
He was recently caught in a controversy after he supported former US President Donald Trump’s election fraud claims. Gutfeld had advocated for an investigation into voting in some states.
“That’s why you have to do the recount. And all of the irregularities going one direction,” he was quoted as saying by Meditate. “We were told that there was no evidence, and now that there is evidence, now we are being told, well, yeah, there is evidence, but not enough evidence. […] So it’s not about fraud, it’s about trust. […] So we can’t trust the media. We can’t even trust the FBI. We can’t trust anybody.”
Elena Moussa Greg Gutfeld net worth
Greg Gutfeld’s wife Elena Moussa is estimated to have a net worth of $2 million, according to VeryCeleb. There is no proof that this figure is accurate. Meanwhile, Greg Gutfeld has an annual salary of $7 million, according to CelebrityNetWorth. His estimated net worth as of 2020 is $13 million.
However, we found another blog, Tuko, which claims that Greg Gutfeld earns an annual salary of $2 million. Other blogs also place him very low in the pecking order of highest-earning Fox News anchors. This makes the earlier claim of a $7 million annual salary seem far-fetched.
Elena Moussa is a former Russian model and photo editor for the magazine, Maxim Russia. Since leaving the company, she has set up her own called Moussa Project. She is popularly known as Greg Gutfeld’s first wife.
Gutfeld is popular for hosting the late-night talk show Gutfeld!, and is also one of five co-hosts and panellists on the political talk show The Five, both of which airs on Fox News Channel.
Unlike her husband, Moussa does not comment on political issues online and never makes the news. She has since taken a step back from the show business. Meanwhile, her husband is still very active.
