Kimberly Guilfoyle is a former attorney, prosecutor, and news personality. She has recently focused her efforts on the political arena as head of the Trump Victory Finance Committee, a fundraising initiative for the reelection campaign for President Donald Trump. Just prior to that, Kimberly was a part of the political action committee America First Policies, a campaign for Republicans in the 2018 mid-term elections.
Kimberly was born on March 9, 1969 in San Francisco, California. Her mother was of Puerto Rican descent and her father was an Irish immigrant. She was raised in the Mission District of San Francisco, as well as Westlake and Daly City. She graduated from San Francisco’s Mercy High School.
She graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of California, Davis, and later earned her Juris Doctor from the University of San Francisco School of Law. While attending law school, Kimberly interned with the San Francisco District Attorney’s office, as well as working as a model for Macy’s and Victoria’s Secret. Kimberly also studied at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, where she researched and published papers on topics such as international children’s rights and European Community Law.
Kimberly worked as a prosecutor for a time in San Francisco before relocating to Los Angeles to work as a Deputy District Attorney for four years, after which she returned home to San Francisco to serve as the Assistant District Attorney for four more years. During her tenure in Los Angeles, Kimberly was honored with the Prosecutor of the Month award.
In 2001, Kimberly married her first husband, a political up-and-comer named Gavin Newsome, who was later elected mayor of San Francisco, making her First Lady of San Francisco, where her efforts as First Lady garnered her another honor as Outstanding Woman of the Year.
In 2004, Kimberly switched coasts to New York City to pursue a career in television, where she hosted “Both Sides” on Court TV and appeared as a legal analyst on “Anderson Cooper 360°”, which airs on CNN.
In 2005, due to the pressure of maintaining a long-distance relationship, Kimberly and Gavin were divorced and a year later in 2006, Kimberly remarried to Eric Villency, and together they had a son, Ronan Anthony. At the same time, Kimberly landed a job as a host on the weekend show “The Lineup” on Fox News. The show was later canceled, but Kimberly remained with the Fox network in the role of legal analyst. In 2011, a few years after her divorce from Eric, Kimberly found herself co-hosting “The Five” on Fox News, where she worked for several more years, including making appearances on “The O’Reilly Factor,” “Hannity,” and “Fox and Friends.”
In 2015, Kimberly wrote a semi-autobiographical book entitled “Making the Case: How to Be Your Own Best Asset,” which highlighted her experience working as a prosecutor. The book was meant as an encouragement for people to be vigilant in standing up for themselves.
These days, Kimberly can be often seen in the company of her new love interest, Donald Trump Jr., as they attend Republican rallies across the United States.
