Who is Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle?
In March 2018, Donald Trump Jr. and his wife, Vanessa Trump, announced they were getting divorced. Trump Jr. was reportedly unfaithful to Vanessa Trump during their marriage, and once they announced their divorce, it didn’t take long for Trump Jr. to move on with Kimberly Guilfoyle. The two have been dating for more than a year now, but who is she?
Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle made their relationship Instagram official back in June 2018
Once Trump Jr. and his wife announced their divorce, he moved on quickly to Guilfoyle. Dating rumors between the two started only a few weeks after Trump Jr. announced the split. In early May, the two attended a party together hosted by President Trump; they were spotted at dinner together shortly after. And by June 2018, they had become Instagram official. Guilfoyle appears to have a good relationship with Trump’s family. In January 2019, she tweeted about how proud she was of Ivanka Trump, Trump Jr.’s sister, and said that she’s “an inspiration to so many women.”
Guilfoyle is a former Fox News Host
Guilfoyle and Trump Jr. have known each other since at least 2007; they were in a photo together at the time. Guilfoyle took a job with Fox News back in 2006, where she hosted the weekend show The Lineup. After the show was canceled, Guilfoyle continued her career with Fox News as a regular contributor. She was eventually cast as co-host of The Five in 2011. For the next seven years, Guilfoyle was a regular on Fox News and remained co-host of The Five until 2018 (she also co-hosted Outnumbered several times). She left the network shortly after she began dating Trump Jr.
She’s been married twice
While Guilfoyle comes across as a hard-core conservative, she was actually married to a democrat back in the early 2000s. Guilfoyle wed Gavin Newsom in 2001, and she subsequently served as the First Lady of San Francisco from 2004-2006, after Newsom was elected mayor. However, Guilfoyle had moved to New York in 2004 for work, and the couple’s marriage was strained. They divorced in 2006. Guilfoyle was also married to furniture heir Eric Villency, with whom she shares one child. The two wed in Barbados in 2006 but separated in 2009 and were divorced less than a year later.
She was considered for Donald Trump’s press secretary job back in 2016
Before Guilfoyle began dating Trump Jr., she was on President Trump’s radar as a potential press secretary. Guilfoyle reportedly was considered for the job back in 2016. However, Sean Spicer was selected instead. After he resigned, Guilfoyle was once again considered for the job, but she instead extended her contract with Fox News, which meant she had turned down the position. At one point, Guilfoyle said it would be an honor to work for President Trump, but it’s unclear what the reason for her turning down the position was. It doesn’t appear to have had to do with Trump Jr., but regardless, Guilfoyle is now closer to the Trump family than ever.
