Guilfoyle was co-host of roundtable program The Five, airing weekdays 5-6 p.m. (est). which maintained the highest news and talk show ratings in its time slot. She also frequently appeared as a panelist on the FNC show Outnumbered, which airs Monday-Friday at 12 Noon (est).Guilfoyle joined Fox News Channel at their New York City headquarters in 2006. She originally served FNC as a legal analyst and the she was tapped to host a crime-based show, The Lineup.
“Fox News has parted ways with Kimberly Guilfoyle,” said the network in a statement.
Prior to joining FNC, Guilfoyle was a legal analyst at ABC News and was featured regularly on Good Morning America. She left to work at the more conservative FNC, where she quickly became a popular contributor. While considered a beautiful and alluring presence on camera, Guilfoyle is also known to have a sharp legal mind.
Before her career in television news and commentary, Guilfoyle was an assistant district attorney in the California cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Guilfoyle is dating Donald Trump Jr. She may work at America First Policies, according to CNN Money, a non-profit that works to support President Trump’s agenda.
Kimberly Guilfoyle was born in San Francisco to a Puerto Rican mother and an Irish father.She grew up in the Mission District and Westlake and is a graduate of Mercy High School. Guilfoyle’s mother, Mercedes, taught special education, and died of leukemia when Guilfoyle was eleven. “My mother was just everything to me, I loved her so much, I always wanted to be around her. I loved how I saw people react to her. She was a warm woman who worked in education with people with emotional challenges. I got my sense of giving back and how when you have many blessings, pay it forward,” Guilfoyle said in a 2015 interview.
Guilfoyle graduated magna cum laude from the University of California, and received her Juris Doctor (J.D.) from the University of San Francisco School of Law in 1994. While in law school, she interned at the San Francisco district attorney’s office, as well as doing modelling work for Macy’s department stores, as well as a bridal magazine.
What confounded many Americans was that Guilfoyle, a Reagan conservative and devout Republican, married the former mayor of San Francisco, Gary Newsom, who is now seeking the governorship of California and is believed by many to be a radical progressive in the Democratic Party.
