“The View”'s Sara Haines reveals she once had a workplace romance: 'I did dip in the company ink'

Haines married her husband, Max Shifrin, in 2014, after departing her longtime network home at NBC in 2013.

Before she sat at The View's Hot Topics table, Sara Haines said she once turned up the heat with a workplace romance at a past job.

"I did dip in the company ink when I was single," the 46-year-old revealed on Thursday's episode, as the panelists discussed former Donald Trump prosecutor Nathan Wade's romance with Fulton County, Ga. district attorney Fani Willis.

Haines didn't clarify where the workplace romance occurred, though she married husband Max Shifrin in 2014, after departing her longtime employer, NBC, in 2013 to join her current network home at ABC.

"There are right ways to do this, and wrong ways. Don’t do it in a department where there’s power dynamics. I dated someone in a complete different wing of the building, I did not deal with him daily," Haines recalled. "He was a lawyer, so of course when he told me, I had to disclose this to HR, I was like, what? We’re a thing, right?"

Cohost Sunny Hostin butted in with a question for Haines: "What happens, Sara, when you break up and you’ve seen each other naked and now you’ve got to walk by each other?”

Haines told her colleague that "awkward in the office is not unique to romantic relationships," and cited "a lot of dynamics in offices that are weird." She finished by noting that she dated her former partner for years, and was happy with him.

"I don’t know how some people avoid it when you come to a place to work around the clock, to try to make a career," she said. "You’re with people all the time!"
