The assistant also claimed that Guilfoyle engaged in an attempted cover-up, promising the young woman hush money and other perks if she stayed silent about her experiences at work. Guilfoyle also publicly defended Miles, pressured other female Fox staffers to do the same, and allegedly worked to smear Carlson's reputation.
It’s utterly preposterous that there are those who are nefariously and greedily twisting innocent conversations amongst close friends into much more than what it actually was for financial gain. The HR investigation into Guilfoyle started last year, after the host had been warned several times about her workplace behavior, according to Huff Po.
Guilfoyle had been angling to buy time in order to win support from Rupert Murdoch, Fox’s head honcho, according to Huff Po. But doesn’t this radically affect her day job?” CNN media reporter Brian Shelter said on an episode of “Reliable Sources” earlier this month.
Guilfoyle, who is several years older than Don Jr., had previously been romantically linked to former White House communications director Anthony Scaramouch. She is also the ex-wife of Democrat Gavin Newsom, the former mayor of San Francisco that is currently running for governor in California.

Here's one memorable exchange where Rowling appeared to come out on top: She tweeted a screenshot of a complimentary article about her and asked for the writer to come forward. Getty After a Twitter troll mocked Serena Williams -- one of the best tennis players of all time -- accusing her of being built like a man, Rowling defended the sports icon like a boss, posting a picture of Williams in a red dress and writing, “'She is built like a man'.

From President Donald Trump to Piers Morgan to anonymous Internet trolls, Rowling rarely holds back when something gets her attention. KimberlyGuilfoyle was secretly forced out of her role at Fox News over a '$4million' sexual harassment settlement with her female assistant, who claimed the host had exposed herself to her and showed her nude photos of men, according to a new report.
At the time, not much was said on her sudden departure except Guilfoyle maintained she chose to leave on her own terms to begin a new job at America First, a Trump super PAC. The New Yorker on Thursday reported Guilfoyle was quietly pushed out after network executives received complaints accusing the host of sexually in appropriate behavior.
According to the report, Guilfoyle's female assistant had submitted a 42-page draft claiming her boss had frequently exhibited 'degrading' and 'abusive' behavior and at one point offered to buy her silence when she realized her job could be in jeopardy. The woman, who was not named, had been hired as an assistant to Guilfoyle and former Fox News host Eric Bowling as a recent college graduate in 2015.
According to the bombshell complaint, Guilfoyle had constantly spoken openly with her assistant about her sex life and would share photos of genitals of the men of with whom she was sleeping. Another source confirmed claims that the former news presenter had shared photos of naked men, and one former Fox staff member told the magazine she had allegedly shown pornographic videos in the office.
The complaint further alleged that Guilfoyle, who was once married to California Governor Gavin Newsom, encouraged her assistant to sleep with rich and powerful men. The report states Guilfoyle's assistant had been working at Fox News at the time the network was being investigated for sexual misconduct amid allegations against former chairman Roger Miles.
The woman was also offered trips to Rome on a private jet, a cut of Guilfoyle's pay from public speaking events and on-air roles, according to the report. Rumors about Guilfoyle's alleged termination from Fox first began to swirl after Huff Post reported three sources claimed she did not leave the cable news network 'voluntarily,' and that her team was busy working out the details of her separation package.
Sources close to both Guilfoyle and her boyfriend Donald Trump Jr denied those claims at the time, saying it was her choice to exit Fox News and begin a new job at America First. The estranged couple was determined to keep things amicable after the split, and some assumed a reconciliation was a possibility, until Page Six reported that Trump Jr. had allegedly moved on with The Five co-host KimberlyGuilfoyle.
Fashionable clothing, pageant hair, and megawatt smile aside, Guilfoyle became a fan favorite on the Fox News panel for her in-depth reports on the royal family and her unwavering support of the Republican Party. In fact, her life away from the newsroom may be even more interesting than the hot topics she discusses on cable TV.
She was raised in the Mission District of San Francisco by her Irish father, Tony, and her Puerto Rican mother, Mercedes, but when Guilfoyle was 11 years old, her mom died of leukemia. I believe now that God did answer my prayers, because she still lives on with me, and she shaped me into who I am today,” she told Fox News.
After her mother's passing, her father, Tony, became a single parent who did his best to raise Guilfoyle and her younger brother, Anthony. When her dad wasn't tending to his dual role as caretaker and nurturer, he was also prepping a young Guilfoyle for adulthood.
After her mom's passing, KimberlyGuilfoyle was “forced to survive,” and that included taking on an even bigger role in her younger sibling's life. One of the downsides of being a parental figure at a young age was the habit Guilfoyle developed of putting others' needs before her own.
“When you're forced to survive, you learn to navigate for yourself and advocate for others,” she said, noting that taking on so many responsibilities at a young age prepared her for adulthood. “Even though no child should have to go through the pain of losing a parent at such a young age, it made the bond with my brother, Anthony, all that much stronger, and I am forever grateful to have him in my life,” she told Bella NYC.
“So my mom met with the coach and said, 'Please let Kimberly try out with the boys, but don't take her because I am asking you: only if she's good enough,” Guilfoyle recalled. Her soccer past really sheds new light on one of her late dad's favorite sayings.
From a very early age, she knew she wanted to be a lawyer, so after high school, she enrolled in the University of California, Davis, where she graduated magna cum laude, according to AOL. She immediately put her degree to good use as a prosecutor in San Francisco before she made the trek south to work as deputy district attorney in Los Angeles.
Guilfoyle wasn't going to let anything stand in the way of her dream of becoming an attorney, so to pay the bills, she hit the workforce between those college courses. “When I was in college at UC Davis, I had three jobs: I was working at the district attorney's office as an intern, I worked at the clothing store Clothes time, and I was modeling and doing different jobs in and around San Francisco and Sacramento,” she told Cosmopolitan.
Long before she was chowing down and stuffing her face during The Five's Kimberly's Food Court segment, Guilfoyle became the first lady of San Francisco when her then-husband, Gavin Newsom, was elected mayor. Guilfoyle called her stint as a politician's wife one of the greatest honors of her life, according to Fox News.
“Unfortunately, the demands of our respective careers have made it too difficult for us to continue as a married couple,” the pair said in a statement. The Fox News host announced in 2017 that she was eyeing a job as White House press secretary, and President Donald Trump was allegedly considering the idea, too.
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.” In June of that year, Fox New s signed the bubbly broadcaster to a long-term contract, locking her in for an extended stay on The Five.
Placing her under contract with Fox was a sign that her chances of being employed at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue were slim. Though she didn't get to work alongside President Trump, she was still able to make connections within the White House, which is evident now that we know the truth about her rumored romances with folks within the administration, and we're not just talking about Don Jr....
Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramouch had a tough time working under the Trump administration. Not only was he canned 11 days into his job, but his wife of three years, Deidre Bell, filed for divorce in July 2017, while she was nine months pregnant.
Following the split, Scaramouch was spotted with Guilfoyle frolicking in Rome and house hunting in Manhattan. Staying cordial with a former flame is no easy task, but the Fox News host has seemingly mastered the art of ending all of her long-term relationships on a high note.
“I work hard and strive to give time to people in my life who've counted on me in the past. As a two-time divorcee, perhaps she isn't a pro at marriage, but Guilfoyle has certainly figured out how to end her unions without holding on to any lingering resentment.
He and his estranged wife, Vanessa, have managed to remain cordial following their divorce announcement, and he even gave her a public shout-out on Mother's Day 2018. But her penchant for being outspoken came back to bite her when the panel addressed female voters and jurors in October 2014.
Guilfoyle stated that beautiful, young women should automatically be excused from jury duty “so they can go on Tinder or Match.com” instead. They are not in that same life experience of paying the bills, doing the mortgage, kids, community, crime, education, health care.
Guilfoyle said that wasn't her intent, telling Elle, “Come on, young women should vote, I am a huge supporter ... “I always love to give back and impact the lives of others positively,” she told Bella NYC.
Her charitable commitments include working as the ambassador for the Special Olympics NYC Junior Committee and serving on the board of the Esophageal Cancer Education Foundation.
