Zulma says everything was okay with Edward when she first saw him. She, however, jokes that if it wasn’t for Shimkus’ father’s polyester shirt, it would have the love at first sight.

Shimkus Is Really Tall; What Is Her Height?

Carley Shimkus stands at a height of five foot ten inches. Shimkus definitely is a tall woman. In fact, she usually towers above her friends, speaking from her social media posts.

Shimkus once revealed her height inspired her so much that she even tried modeling in high school. It also gave her the opportunity to be in one advertisement for a costume store. Shimkus however says modeling was rather a fun experience but something “not in the cards for me.”

Carley Shimkus Net Worth; How Rich Is She?

Shimkus being the national level TV news anchor definitely earns the big bucks however her net worth still lacks a solid assessment.

Regardless one could bet on Carley Shimkus enjoying a lucrative career. After all, she is one of the most recognizable faces of Fox News -also one of the big media broadcasters.

Being the host of one of the important shows in one of the biggest news networks, there’s always a good chance that Shimkus pulls in millions of dollars annually or at least the numbers way beyond some median figures.

The disappointment though is that Shimkus’ net worth still lacks a widely approved denomination.
