Guilfoyle and Gavin Newsom announced their divorce in a statement issued by the San Francisco City Hall mayor's office: “Unfortunately, the demands of our respective careers have made it too difficult for us to continue as a married couple. A friend of the couple said Newsom and Guilfoyle's bi-coastal arrangement took its toll on the relationship: “It's no secret that they have been leading separate lives,” the source said.
Since their split, both parties have moved on to other relationships, and for Guilfoyle, her new partner is bringing her into the presidential spotlight. KimberlyGuilfoyle got to know the Trump family while working in New York, especially when she joined Fox News in 2006.
She wrote, directed and produced three documentaries: Miss Representation, The Mask You Live In, and The Great American Lie. The Republican power couple has devoted much of its time to campaigning and working on behalf of Trump Jr.'s father, President Donald Trump (via Elle), but Guilfoyle and Don Jr. have enjoyed some time to themselves.
According to their Instagram feeds, they stay very active by taking adventurous day trips together. “Enjoying the outdoors with @donaldjtrumpjr,” Guilfoyle captioned a photo from a fishing trip in May 2019.
San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and his wife KimberlyGuilfoyleNewsom attend the GQ party in his honor July 27, 2004, at The Federalist Restaurant in Boston, Massachusetts. She lived in New York, where she was breaking into network TV after serving as a prosecutor, and he was located in San Francisco.
Friends told the San Francisco Chronicle at the time that the pair still got along and weren’t in screaming matches or anything but that neither would budge when it came to prioritizing their careers. The politics of Guilfoyle and Newsom couldn’t be more different; she is a vocal conservative who supports the president’s policies, and he is running for governor on the Democratic ticket in a very blue state.
Guilfoyle addressed these political differences in an interview she gave after she started dating Trump Jr. Guilfoyle made the comments during a radio interview with Breitbart News’ Alex Marlow.
It later emerged that Gavin Newsom, while he was mayor, had an affair with a woman named Ruby Ripped Disney. In this particular instance, however, I am doubtful that it applies,” Ripped Disney wrote on her Facebook page.
In 2006, Guilfoylemarried Eric Violence, the head of a furniture chain founded by his grandfather. Her Facebook page reads, “Founder/CEO The Representation Project; Filmmaker ‘Miss Representation’ and ‘The Mask You Live In;’ Mom of 4; Wife of Gavin Newsom.” Her biography on the page of the Lieutenant Governor reads, “An advocate for women, girls, and their families, Jennifer Siegel Newsom is a filmmaker, speaker and President and CEO of the non-profit organization The Representation Project, a call-to-action campaign and media organization established to shift people’s consciousness, inspire individual and community action and ultimately, transform culture.” The page says Newsom resides in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, and is the proud mother of three young children, Montana, Hunter and Brooklyn.” The couple now also has a fourth child.
The couple caused controversy when Newsom ’s wife posted a photo showing she uses dog poop bags with President Trump’s face on them. “After testing positive, Kimberly was immediately isolated to limit any exposure,” said Sergio For, chief of staff for the Trump Victory Finance Committee.
Guilfoyle was not with the President and Donald Trump Jr. has so far tested negative, the person familiar with the matter said. That source said Guilfoyle had not had recent contact with the President, but she was in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and was backstage for his rally there and, was also at his event in Phoenix.
A former Fox News personality, Guilfoyle assumed the role earlier this year of national chairwoman of the Trump Victory Finance Committee, where she is credited with expanding its ranks of fundraisers. Guilfoyle and Trump Jr. had been in the upper Plains' region hosting high-dollar fundraisers for several days, people familiar with the matter said.
Guilfoyle has “been with a lot of the campaign donors” in recent days, one source familiar with the matter said. Billed as a “Mountain West Ranch Retreat,” one event occurred in Gallatin Gateway, Montana, from Tuesday until Thursday, according to one of the people.
Born and raised in San Francisco, Guilfoylemarried current California governor Gavin Newsom when he was a member of the city board of supervisors in 2001. All of Trump’s campaign staffers who worked on the rally in Tulsa were quarantining last week after interacting with several colleagues who later tested positive for coronavirus, CNN reported at the time.
The news of Guilfoyle ’s test comes not long after Trump Jr. posted images that falsely suggested that masks and face coverings don’t help prevent the spread of the highly contagious virus. The most memorable (and meme-able) moment at this year’s RNC undoubtedly belonged to former Fox News host KimberlyGuilfoyle.
After Googling Guilfoyle ’s name, ripples of shock made their way across social media as people discovered she had once been married to California Governor Gavin Newsom. The two were a San Francisco power couple during their 2001–2005 marriage, while he served as mayor, and she acted as Assistant District Attorney.
“It is a place of immense wealth, immeasurable innovation, and immaculate environment, and the Democrats turned it into a land of discarded heroin needles in parks, riots in streets, and blackouts in homes.” At a press conference yesterday, when Newsom was asked about that part of his ex-wife’s speech, he exercised a great deal of restraint.

Gavin Newsom was married to KimberlyGuilfoyle for three years, a union that was strained due to the hectic schedules of the former city supervisor-turned mayor of San Francisco and the TV personality.
Their respective careers had them working on opposite sides of the country, and it was said that these work/living situations were ultimately the biggest contributing factors into the dissolution of their marriage. The mayor's office released the following joint statement commenting on their split with “great sadness”: “Unfortunately, the demands of our respective careers have made it too difficult for us to continue as a married couple.
Newsom recently criticized President Trump during the Democratic National Convention for comments he made regarding California's disastrous fires. She was not only a former Fox News personality, but also served as the vice chairwoman of America First Action, a Pro-Trump Super PAC.
Siegel is the current First Partner of California, and is politically affiliated with the Independent party, but used to identify as Republican. The one relationship that received a ton of media coverage of Newsom's, but isn't often discussed these days, is his short-lived tryst with then 19-year-old model Brittanies Mount.
Newsom, who was 39 years old at the time, reportedly met Mount when she was working as a hostess in a restaurant. Not much is known about Brittanies Mount's life since her breakup with Gavin, even though she became part of a slew of anti- Newsom Facebook ads attacking his re-election Campaign in 2018.
“It is a place of immense wealth, immeasurable innovation, an immaculate environment, and the Democrats turned it into a land of discarded heroin needles in parks, riots in streets and blackouts in homes.” By the Democrats, she meant the political party that dominates the nation’s most populous state and has helped make it a perma-thorn in the president’s side.
(If you do not enjoy slightly gossipy romps through the political archives, feel free to skip down a bit straight to the day’s headlines.) Perhaps we should begin in 2001, at what the San Francisco Chronicle termed “the social event of the year.” The bride was a San Francisco prosecutor who had famously modeled through law school, the groom was a rising star county supervisor and the celebration began in a gardenia-filled Catholic Church and continued at Ann and Gordon Getty’s Pacific Heights manse.
There were either 400, 500 or 600 guests in attendance at Newsom and Guilfoyle ’s wedding, according to Women’s Wear Daily, W and Harper’s Bazaar, respectively. And both their candidacies had been blessed by legendary San Francisco kingmaker and then-outgoing mayor Willie Brown, who served as a mentor to each of them.
In 2003, a few weeks before the district attorney and mayoral races, Guilfoyle told a San Francisco Chronicle columnist about how she felt Harris had tried to stand in her way for an earlier job, insinuating they were far from friendly prosecutor office mates. 'S office, Guilfoyle was “still smarting from what she says was the frosty and underhanded treatment she got from Harris when she was making a bid to return to the D.A.
