In 2001, Guilfoyle married San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom.

SFGate said the couple was married for only three years and the relationship was “bicoastal.” However, they did not divorce until 2006. She had accepted a job with Court TV after they were married and relocated to New York, while he ran San Francisco government. They eventually announced their divorce.

Newsom is now the lieutenant governor of California and has formed a committee to run for governor in 2018. He is remarried and has three children with his second wife.

“Unfortunately, the demands of our respective careers have made it too difficult for us to continue as a married couple,” they said in a statement, according to the newspaper.


3. She Is Part Puerto Rican & Some Trump Transition Team Members Think She Could Help Him on Issues Like Immigration

According to Politico, Guilfoyle is Latina – she is half Puerto Rican. Some close to Trump believed she “would be a more sympathetic face when flacking some of Trump’s more divisive stances on immigration and pro-life issues,” said Politico.

On Fox, Guilfoyle once said President Barack Obama had enjoyed a “fairytale romance” with the news media. She concluded, “Nobody’s had it so bad as President-Elect Donald Trump.”

When former anchor Gretchen Carlson accused Fox News head Roger Ailes of sexual harassment, Guilfoyle said her reaction was “Total disbelief.” However, Ailes was later accused in a law suit filed by someone else of referring to Guilfoyle as a “Puerto Rican w–re.”

She also has criticized Black Lives Matter, saying that Irish people don’t say Irish Lives Matter because they “got over” discrimination they faced when they first came to America.


4. Guilfoyle Has a Young Son & Was Divorced a Second Time

Guilfoyle lives in New York City with her son, Ronan Anthony Villency, her website biography says. He is her child with her second husband, Eric Villency, CEO and heir of the Villency Design Group. They were divorced after three years of marriage. They met in 2006.

She told Mediaite, “Even though we’re divorced, I’m still very close with his family. Even when people don’t stay married, they can still be a family together.”

As for her birth family, Guilfoyle speaks warmly of her mother, who died of leukemia when she was young, and said she wanted to be a prosecutor to help victims because she related to their sense of loss. She also said in an interview with Mediaite that she had raised her younger brother and considered her father her best life coach.

Her father was a contractor, according to Fox News PR.


5. Her Net Worth Is in the Millions of Dollars

Guilfoyle’s net worth is said to be around $5 million. The San Francisco Chronicle said, according to Fox PR,  “her signature fashion statement is a good heel and (she) has even attracted her own Twitter alias for her long legs and high heeled shoes.”

  1. I could see it, but I’d just as soon it were Laura Ingraham. Either way, it’s nice to see sharp, intelligent conservative ladies in the forefront again.
    The obama years of hags/nags/pajama boys are over.

  2. She will be great to be grabbed by Trump. I am sure that’s why they picked her out of all FoxNews bimbos. Laura Ingram can’t compete with Kimberly. Won’t be Trumps number 10 choice!

    • YEAH Roger Ailes picked her out of all Fox/False News Bimbos- She is an obvious number one! GRAB HER BY P Mr Present ELECT!

    • Yes, she’ll be a great representative too for the solid sanctity of marriage that seems so critical to Trumpers, that they want to make sure only straight people have the right to repeatedly divorce and raise kids in broken homes.

      • Beats being raised by two phag-gutz. That’s the old adage, what’s worse than ONE Pha-gut……….TWO pha-gutz. It’s supposed to be “Adam and Eve” not “Adam and Steve”. Read the Bible.

  3. She did not get the job. So I guess you people were wrong. Andrea tantaros played herself out of a chance to work for trump.
