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- wifeKimberlyGuilfoyle 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. GavinNewsom's former wifeKimberlyGuilfoyle did not hold back Monday night in reducing the Golden State's “immaculate environment” to one piled high with used needles and street melees.
“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.” While Rep. Matt Gaeta of Florida, Republican activist Charlie Kirk, Orange County schoolteacher Rebecca Friedrich also took aim at California's liberal leadership and rolling power outages, Guilfoyle stole the virtual stage and had effectively won Twitter by Tuesday morning.
Guilfoyle married Newsom in 2001 while the current Governor was Mayor of San Francisco, and she, Assistant District Attorney in the city. The two divorced in 2005, citing that the demands of their respective careers had become too strenuous to continue as a couple, the pair said in a statement in 2005.
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. 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, Guilfoyle married 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.
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.
'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. The city’s youngest mayor in more than a century and the state’s first Black district attorney were sworn in on the same day in January 2004.
After a few high-profile flings (a Scientologist actress who was then on “CSI: Miami”; maybe a 19-year-old ; a female staffer who was married to one of his closest advisors), Newsom finally settled down for good before leaving City Hall, proposing to his now- wife, First Partner Jennifer Siegel Newsom in 2008. In 2018, she left her Fox News co-host role, where she had been a strong advocate for Trump, to join his political action committee.
