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.
Gavin Newsom declined to speak ill of ex-wife KimberlyGuilfoyle after she called out the state for its handling of current drug and homelessness crises during her Republican National Convention address. Newsom, a Democrat who was married to the former Fox News host from 2001 to 2006, was taking questions from reporters Wednesday when he was asked, “I’m curious if you are watching the RNC, and if you had a response to your ex-wife who said in prime time … that California is ‘a land of discarded heroin needles in parks, riots in streets and blackouts in homes.
“Let me just extend appreciation for your effort to get my response and I respectfully defer to the next question,” Newsom said before moving to another reporter. The former couple, dubbed “the New Kennedy's” in a 2004 Harper’s Bazaar spread, remained friendly after their split despite their political differences.

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. 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. According to NBC News, she is joining a pro-Trump group and become more politically involved on the campaign trail.
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.
KimberlyGuilfoyle had hit headlines when an explosive report from The New Yorker spilled details on her mysterious exit from Fox News. The former host and legal analyst who was one of the panel members on 'The Five' announced her departure in July 2018 after working for 12 years.
In no time, social media exploded with severe scrutiny over scandalous details claiming the host “displayed herself naked” and splashed “photographs of the genitalia of men with whom Guilfoyle had had sexual relations.” Until 2004, she was an assistant district attorney in San Francisco after which she changed her career path and entered the media industry.
As per an SF Gate report, many others found it hard to believe, especially after their politically-tinged wedding staged for 500 people at St Ignatius Church. After their marriage, Guilfoyle made a career move to New York and joined Fox News to host a crime show called 'The Lineup'.

A year later, in 2007, a scandal broke that Newsom was having an affair with Ruby Rippey-Tourk, the wife of his then-campaign manager and former deputy chief of staff, Alex Tour. “Everything you’ve heard and read is true,” Newsom, a Democrat, told reporters during a news conference at the time.
Did you know Guilfoyle was already five months pregnant with Eric Violence's child when she walked down the aisle at her destination wedding? A source told New York Post the pregnancy “was the worst-kept secret in town” at the time but the wedding ceremony had been planned long before they found out about the child.

By September, the pair hit the road for several rallies and fundraisers at Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana, Nevada and Texas. Her relationship with the Trumps has raised many eyeballs, especially in regard to her lavish lifestyle, including the use of private jets and her controversial birthday party at Mar-A-Lago, which was reportedly paid for in part by some campaign donors.
