S. E. Cupp is an American television host, conservative political commentator, and writer. She was previously a panelist on the CNN political debate show Crossfire and the news talk and political discussion show Real News From The Blaze, as well as a co-host of the afternoon MSNBC talk show The Cycle.
S. E. is married to John Goodwin, with whom she has a son.
While various sources states that S. E. was born as Sarah Elizabeth Cupp, it is more likely that her birth name is Sarah Elizabeth Wendt, due to the fact that no “Sarah Elizabeth Cupp” was born in California on the right date. Her mother’s maiden name then is DePaolo, a family name that is also thanked in her book Losing Our Religion: The Liberal Media’s Attack on Christianity. This makes it likely that her father, Kenneth (who has British Isles ancestry), is actually S. E.’s stepfather. The surname of S. E.’s likely biological father, Wendt, is German.
S. E.’s maternal grandparents are Gerard DePaolo and Blanche. Gerard was an Italian immigrant. Blanche is a first-generation Italian-American.
