KimberlyGuilfoyle pre-records her address to the Republican National Convention. Getty ImagesRecounting a recent phone call between the two, the Trump campaign surrogate, who had begun dating Donald Trump Jr. by that point, “playfully threatened” to bring her new boyfriend to the Golden State to campaign against him. Guilfoyle did not mention Newsom by name during her 2020 RNC remarks Monday night, but she pulled no punches when discussing her home state.
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. KimberlyGuilfoyle and Gavin Newsom married in 2001, in what appeared to be a promising relationship as political superpowers.
According to The Washington Post, only three days after Newsom was sworn in as mayor, Guilfoyle flew to New York City to start a new job as a host on a show for Court TV. 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. “The stakes have never been higher in a presidential election,” she said in a statement announcing her role with the committee, per The Hill.
“The President's record of success is drawing unprecedented support from across the country and these crucial financial resources will ensure he's in a strong position to win in November.” Kimberly has been a powerful and effective leader and surrogate for President Trump and her expanded role will only make the re-election campaign stronger,” campaign manager Brad Par scale told The Hill.
“The President's record of achievement is attracting unprecedented support and Kimberly will lead the effort to convert that into the resources we'll need to win.” San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and his wifeKimberlyGuilfoyleNewsom 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.
The magazine article reported that the couple “promises to be one of the most glamorous political unions since Jack and Jackie” and it quoted Newsom as saying of Guilfoyle, “It’s this wonderful combination of being in love and extraordinarily proud.” 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. According to the Los Angeles Times, Newsom and Ripped Disney “had an affair when she worked as the then-mayor’s appointments secretary.
At the time, she was married to the Democrat’s campaign manager and friend, Alex Tour.” Then 39, the mayor admitted to the indiscretion, saying, “I want to make it clear that everything you’ve heard and read is true, and I’m deeply sorry about that.
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.
Yes, Guilfoyle, who radiated such gunshot MAGA energy at the GOP convention that she’s since become a meme, who is so down for the cause that she’s dating one of the president’s sons, used to be married to Gavin Newsom, big-time Democrat and California’s current governor. People who worked with Guilfoyle as a prosecutor spoke highly of her, according to an extensive Washington Post profile from 2018, but she left the job in 2003 to help her husband’s mayoral campaign, which he won.
Take your pick; it’s either the husband-and- wife Charlie Rose appearance or the Harper’s Bazaar spread from 2004 that’s currently circulating on Twitter, in which the magazine dubbed the couple the “New Kennedy's.” Back then, Guilfoyle ’s manner was indeed less cable news than Jackie O. In that Charlie Rose clip, she politely laughs at both men’s jokes, dressed in a subtle black long-sleeved jacket.
“I stand 100 percent by his side on this,” she says of then–San Francisco Mayor Newsom ’s decision to issue marriage licenses for same-sex couples. Even as Newsom describes her politics as “modestly more conservative” than his, her appeals for “hope” and “togetherness” sound a very far cry from Monday’s warnings of riots and drug trafficking.

And it was when she started that gig that she began to socialize in the conservative circles that eventually brought her into the Trump family’s orbit.
For most of her time at Fox, she had a good relationship with Roger Miles, the network’s chairman, but one former Trump campaign official told the Post he thought her standing might have suffered after his 2016 ouster. She was one of the women Miles’ wife called on to publicly defend him amid allegations of sexual harassment, as depicted in the movie Bombshell, and she did so vociferously in an interview with Breitbart News.
In a tweet announcing her departure from Fox News in 2018, Guilfoyle wrote that she had made the “bitter-sweet” decision to leave, so she could dedicate herself full time to the Trump campaign, though HuffPost reported that she was given the boot due to a human resources investigation and allegations of misconduct. During his run for governor, she told the Post she joked to him that she would get Don Jr. to campaign against him and also drew comparisons between the men’s twin slicked-backed hairdos.
During a pandemic press conference, California’s governor faced the inevitable inquiry about whether he watched Guilfoyle trash the Golden State during her fiery speech at the Republican National Convention that quickly became a meme. “I will jump on the grenade on behalf of everybody,” veteran politics reporter Alex Michelson with Fox 11 Los Angeles said as it became clear he planned to ask about Newsom ’s first wife.
In her speech delivered with staccato shouting in a empty, echoing room, Guilfoyle panned Democrats as pushing a “dangerous” socialist agenda and took aim at her own home state. Harper’s Bazaar, meanwhile, dubbed the spouses the “New Kennedy's” in a 2004 feature that included a notorious photo of the power couple posed on one of heiress Anne Getty’s floor rugs while dressed in formal attire.
The former mayor of San Francisco did acknowledge that if he were to become governor, he would need to have “some semblance of a relationship” with President Donald Trump. Newsom vowed to “push back aggressively” should Trump do something he disagrees with.
“My purpose is not to wake up every day looking to get a crowbar to put in the wheels or spokes of the administration,” he said. “But boy, I'll take a backseat to absolutely no one in protecting and preserving our values, and if he wants to attack the people of this state, they will have no greater champion than myself.

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.
In 2000, Guilfoyle was re-hired by Tallinn in the San Francisco District Attorney's Office, where she served as an assistant district attorney from 2000 to 2004. 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. After Guilfoyle's departure, Fox News agreed to an out-of-court settlement with an assistant who had accused Guilfoyle of sexual harassment.
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.
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. In January 2021, Guilfoyle joined President Trump, Donald Jr., Rudy Giuliani, Eric Trump and others on the Ellipse in Washington, D.C. to address the “Save America March”.
Guilfoyle also appeared in a video screened at the march by Donald Jr., “break into the hip-shaking dance she's been showcasing at other recent pro-Trump rallies” and “tell Trump fans: 'Have the courage to do the right thing! 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. In mid-2019, Guilfoyle and Trump jointly purchased a $4.4 million home in The Hampton's.
