Guilfoyle's mother, Mercedes, taught special education. Her father, Anthony “Tony” Guilfoyle, was born in Tennis, County Clare, Ireland, and immigrated to the United States in 1957 at the age of 20.
In 1958, while still an Irish citizen, he was drafted and served for four years in the U.S. Army. After being discharged from the army, Tony Guilfoyle took up work in the construction trades.
He later became a real estate investor and, until his death in 2008, a close advisor to Mayor Newsom. Guilfoyle then spent four years in Los Angeles as a deputy district attorney, working on adult and juvenile cases, including narcotics, domestic violence, kidnapping, robbery, arson, sexual assault, and homicide cases.
She received several awards at the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office, including Prosecutor of the Month. During this time she achieved a conviction while co-prosecuting with James Hammer in the 2002 case People v. Noel and Knoll er, a second-degree murder trial involving a dog mauling that received international attention.
In mid-2017, Guilfoyle signed a long-term contract extension with Fox. A year later, in July 2018, Guilfoyle abruptly left Fox News; she then began working for a pro-Donald Trump super PAC.
The New Yorker subsequently corroborated reports that Guilfoyle had been forced to resign, rather than leaving by choice. Terms were not disclosed, but The New Yorker reported that the settlement was at least $4 million.
The assistant alleged that Guilfoyle frequently displayed herself naked, showed photographs of the genitalia of men she had had sex with, and required her to sleep over at Guilfoyle's apartment. The New Yorker independently verified several of the assistant's allegations.
In 2015, Guilfoyle released a semi-autobiographical and advice book, titled Making the Case: How to Be Your Own Best Advocate, on her experiences growing up, working as a prosecutor, and encouraging people to always advocate for themselves. Guilfoyle speaking at a campaign rally in Sun City, Arizona in November 2018 In December 2016, it was reported that Guilfoyle was being considered to serve as press secretary for President Donald Trump.
Sean Spicer was considered the front-runner for the position and was ultimately selected. On the May 12, 2017, edition of The Five, co-host Bob Becker hinted that Guilfoyle turned the job down.
However, in an interview with Bay Area News Group on May 15, 2017, Guilfoyle confirmed she was in contact with the White House about the position following Spicer's resignation. “I'm a patriot, and it would be an honor to serve the country”, Guilfoyle said.
“I think it'd be a fascinating job, it's a challenging job, and you need someone really determined and focused, a great communicator in there with deep knowledge to be able to handle that position.” However, on May 19, Guilfoyle said she was under contract with Fox, indicating she turned down the White House.
In 2018, The Washington Post described Guilfoyle as a “conservative cheerleader for President Trump”. As of early 2020, the Trump campaign was paying Guilfoyle $15,000 per month through the campaign manager's private company, Par scale Strategy.
Guilfoyle has been a surrogate on the stump and taken on broad advisory roles. In the Trump 2020 campaign, Guilfoyle managed a fund-raising division.
This division paid socialite Homers Parkas to raise money. The fundraising division managed by Guilfoyle was in internal turmoil amid departures of experienced staff and accusations of irresponsible spending.
In July 2020, Guilfoyle was diagnosed with COVID-19, but her boyfriend, Donald Trump Jr., tested negative. In August 2020, at the Republican National Convention, Guilfoyle gave a speech that was widely described by some observers as unnecessarily loud or unhinged, though others in media described it as passionate.
On May 27, 2006, in Barbados, Guilfoyle married furniture heir Eric Violence. Guilfoyle gave birth to their son, Roman Anthony, on October 4, 2006.
In June 2009, Guilfoyle and Violence announced that they were separating; their divorce was finalized later that year. In June 2018, Vanessa Trump, who had filed for divorce three months earlier, confirmed that Guilfoyle was dating her husband, Donald Trump Jr. The divorce was finalized at the end of 2018.
