Everybody loves Kimberly Guilfoyle. She often is mentioned for possible slots in the federal government, such as White House Press Secretary. However, she seems very happy being a cable news host, and in late June 2017 reportedly signed a long-term deal to stay at the network. There were unconfirmed reports that President Trump was unhappy that Kimberly appeared to be using her supposed opportunity to join the government as leverage in her contract negotiations with Fox, but there are always muddled and even incorrect rumors swirling around situations like that.
Kimberly Guilfoyle also is a former lawyer.
Kimberly Guilfoyle certainly is a girl on the go.
Kimberly is from the Mission District in San Francisco. She began her career in San Francisco.
She is of Puerto Rican and Irish descent.
Clearly, Kimberly Guilfoyle inherited terrific genes from both sides of her background. And she is not shy about displaying them.
|Kimberly with Gavin Newsom.|
Her father was well-connected, advising San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom. Perhaps inspired by this, Kimberly decided to get her legal degree, so she went to the University of California, Davis. She later received her law degree from the University of San Francisco School of Law in 1994.
Kimberly kicked around for a while in the LA and San Francisco prosecutors' offices, but eventually gave up the law for broadcasting. She started appearing on Court TV in 2004, where she was a co-host of "Both Sides." She also made appearances on ABC as a legal analyst.
Kimberly married her father's friend Mayor Newsom on December 8, 2001 in San Francisco at St. Ignatius Church. The wedding ceremony was officiated by Father Stephen Privett, S.J. who was then president of the University of San Francisco.. They stayed together for five years. They divorced in January 2006, which was right around the time that Kimberly began her career at Fox in January of that year. Kimberly had moved to New York two years before to begin a career with CNN, which put too much strain on their marriage. Friends said the breakup was just a matter of not being able to live together.

Kimberly also was married to furniture heir Eric Villency, with whom she had a child not long after her divorce from Newsom. Eric and Kimberly were married at Sandy Lane Resort in St. James, Barbados on May 27, 2006. A minister of the Church of the Nazarene, Rev. Ricky Kirton, officiated their wedding ceremony. They had 400 guests at their wedding reception, which was a major event of the social season. Ronan Anthony Villency was born October 4, 2006 at New York Hospital. Eric and Kimberly divorced within a few years.
Kimberly now is based in New York City, where she lives with her son, Ronan.
Kimberly evokes strong feelings in people. Partly that is just because of her beauty, but it also is partly because she has political views and is not afraid to speak about them.
Now, before we mention anything about that, just remember that it is Kimberly's job to be provocative and "stir the pot." If she didn't express her opinions, she wouldn't be nearly as interesting. And many people find Kimberly Guilfoyle very interesting.
|Kimberly has not given up her love of fashion. Here she is at the Milly Spring 2012 show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, September 14, 2011 in New York City.|
Naturally, Kimberly is going to speak about lots of topics, and nobody is going to agree with all of them.
|According to President Trump on Twitter, Kimberly Guilfoyle's book "Making the Case" is "Required reading 4 success in politics & life read @kimguilfoyle's book #MakingTheCase. Brilliant Advice !"|
Kimberly also is going to say things bluntly because that is the nature of live television. We all have opinions, but we are not required to express them on cue like Kimberly. Sometimes we misspeak or change our mind and don't have video to eternally remind us of some bone-headed thing we said in the past. Facts change, and so do opinions. Things also are taken out of context, and Kimberly, as a lawyer, speaks very precisely.
So, with those caveats in mind, Kimberly has carved out a niche for herself as a bit of a conservative policy hawk. How much of a hawk, well, that depends upon your own politics.
So, Kimberly advocates, for instance, closing Guantanamo Bay. In that sense, she agrees with President Obama, who made that promise part of his election campaigns. To be provocative, Kimberly once said about Guantanamo: "Just kill them all and close Gitmo, that’s fine. They don’t have to come here, they don’t have to stay there." Obviously, Kimberly likes to be provocative.
Kimberly co-hosted the 2015/16 Fox All-American New Year's Eve party on Fox News with fellow "The Five" host Bob Beckel. The guest of honor at midnight was Donald Trump, along with his family. Naturally, some people are not going to especially love that association, and others will. That's part of being a news personality. Kimberly's name has been tied with President Trump's administration, as many think she would make a good fit as Communications Director or Press Secretary. So far, though, nothing has come of that, and Kimberly appears to be happy staying on cable.
Kimberly has known her own share of tragedy. Her mom died when she was 11 from leukemia.
Kimberly expresses serious opinions, so when she makes some jokes, people can take it the wrong way. Some will say her "jokes" are her real opinion,and who knows, maybe they are correct. Everybody can draw their own conclusions.
As one example, Kimberly got into a heated discussion about young women and politics. She said:
"But when you're young like that, you think—same reason why young women on juries are not a good idea, they don't get it. They're not in that same life experience of paying the bills, doing the mortgage, kids, community, crime, education, healthcare. They're like healthy and hot and running around without a care in the world."She concluded that courts should be willing to excuse young women for more important tasks: "I just think, excuse them so they can go back on Tinder and Match.com."
So, you can see that Kimberly is not afraid to "push the envelope." That's what makes her show "The Five" so much fun, and that's why we love our Kimberly.
Word is that Kimberly has a taste for shoes, and that her heel collection — which includes roughly 50 styles from Manolo Blahnik, Yves Saint Laurent, Valentino and Gucci — has its own Twitter account. Yes, her shoes have their own Twitter account.
Kimberly reported spent several million dollars for a condo on Central Park West, then spent more money renovating it. Clearly, she is financially successful for many reasons.
Back when Kimberly was married to Gavin Newsom, they were dubbed “The New Kennedys.” Kimberly still carries on the timeless glamour of Jackie O.
Kimberly said this about her marriage to Mayor Newsom:
"But, seriously, this living on different sides of the continent has taken a huge toll personally. The transcontinental marriage is tough -- the only godsend is that we don't have kids. You give up your life in the traditional sense."Well, Kimberly now has a kid, but not the marriage.
"We watch movies, we Tivo all the Sunday news programs, we like to read. We're not partiers. We work a lot."
Many people have thought for some time that Kimberly Guilfoyle was due for a primetime spot in the Fox News line-up. Well, she did finally get a prime-time slot, but not quite in the way many thought it would happen.
Kimberly Guilfoyle is very popular on social media. She celebrated her 1 millionth follower on Twitter in April 2017. Those are big-time numbers for someone who doesn't even have her own show.
|Kimberly Guilfoyle is very active on Twitter.|
Kimberly takes on various special projects for Fox News. Basically, Kimberly Guilfoyle is a team player who fits in well with the overall Fox News lineup and gives it a little spice.

Kimberly Guilfoyle Lookalikes
Kimberly Guilfoyle obviously is an attractive lady with her own unique sense of style. Many would say that, combining her looks with her bubbly personality, Kimberley is one of the most attractive women on television today. She also has a unique look - but that doesn't mean other women aren't mistaken for her.
For some reason, there are scads of photos floating around of other beautiful women that are identified as being of Kimberly. I'm not really sure why this is. The number of photos of other women attributed to her seems like an unusually large number compared to just about anyone else I've run across.
In any event, below is a gallery of some of these photos (which are not "fakes," they are just commonly misidentified as being Kimberly Guilfoyle photos). Some of these girls are the spitting image of Kimberly, and others arguably resemble her (slightly in some cases) in certain lighting and poses. And with some of these photos, I think, it is more a question of sheer wishful thinking by some Kimberly fans.
Among those who have been confused with Kimberly are Dutch model Doutzen Kroes, fellow Victoria's Secret models Lily Aldridge, Barbara Palvin, Stephanie Seymour and Isabeli Fontana, Robin Meade of CNN, the Kardashians, and glamour model Denise Milani. There are probably many others, too, those are just the ones I've seen floating about.
Just as examples, below are a couple of photos mis-attributed to Kimberly Guilfoyle.
|Robin Meade of CNN and Kimberly Guilfoyle really could be sisters. But, this is Robin, not Kimberly.|
|This one had me fooled for the longest time. It looks like Kimberly and the type of pose/clothes she uses. The smile screams Kimberly. But, alas, this is not Kimberly, apparently it is Robin Meade again.|
Anyway, photos of Kimberly Guilfoyle get mis-attributed all the time. Don't assume that photos are of Kimberly, they take a lot of investigating and some are very difficult to pin down. I'm just trying to give a heads up for any Kimberly fans confused by some of these photos floating around the Internet.
