Kimberly Ann Guilfoyle (born March 9, 1969) is an American cable news personality who briefly modelled Victoria's Secret lingerie in a bridal magazine.
Everybody loves Kimberly Guilfoyle.
She also is a former lawyer.
Kimberly Guilfoyle certainly is a girl on the go.
Kimberly is from the Mission District in San Francisco.
She is of Puerto Rican and Irish descent.
Clearly, Kimberly Guilfoyle inherited terrific genes from both sides of her background. And she is not shy about displaying them.

Her father was well-connected, advising San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom. Perhaps inspired by this, Kimberly decided to get her legal degree, so she went to the University of California, Davis. She later received her law degree from the University of San Francisco School of Law in 1994.
Kimberly kicked around for a while in the LA and San Francisco prosecutors' offices, but eventually gave up the law for broadcasting. She started appearing on Court TV in 2004, where she was a co-host of "Both Sides." She also made appearances on ABC as a legal analyst.
Kimberly married her father's friend Mayor Newsom on December 8, 2001 in San Francisco at St. Ignatius Church. The wedding ceremony was officiated by Father Stephen Privett, S.J. who was then president of the University of San Francisco.. They stayed together for five years. They divorced in January 2006, which was right around the time that Kimberly began her career at Fox in January of that year. Kimberly had moved to New York two years before to begin a career with CNN, which put too much strain on their marriage. Friends said the breakup was just a matter of not being able to live together.
Kimberly also was married to furniture heir Eric Villency, with whom she had a child not long after her divorce from Newsom. Eric and Kimberly were married at Sandy Lane Resort in St. James, Barbados on May 27, 2006. A minister of the Church of the Nazarene, Rev. Ricky Kirton, officiated their wedding ceremony. They had 400 guests at their wedding reception, which was a major event of the social season. Ronan Anthony Villency was born October 4, 2006 at New York Hospital. Eric and Kimberly divorced within a few years.
Kimberly now is based in New York City, where she lives with her son, Ronan.
Kimberly evokes strong feelings in people. Partly that is just because of her beauty, but it also is partly because she has political views and is not afraid to speak about them.
Now, before we mention anything about that, just remember that it is Kimberly's job to be provocative and "stir the pot." If she didn't express her opinions, she wouldn't be nearly as interesting.
|Kimberly has not given up her love of fashion. Here she is at the Milly Spring 2012 show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, September 14, 2011 in New York City.|
Naturally, Kimberly is going to speak about lots of topics, and nobody is going to agree with all of them.
Kimberly also is going to say things bluntly because that is the nature of live television. We all have opinions, but we are not required to express them on cue like Kimberly. Sometimes we mis-speak or change our mind and don't have video to eternally remind us of some bone-headed thing we said in the past. Facts change, and so do opinions. Things also are taken out of context, and Kimberly, as a lawyer, speaks very precisely.
So, with those caveats in mind, Kimberly has carved out a niche for herself as a bit of a hawk. How much of a hawk, well, that depends upon your own politics.
So, Kimberly advocates, for instance, closing Guantanamo Bay. In that sense, she agrees with President Obama, who made that promise part of his election campaigns. To be provocative, Kimberly once said about Guantanamo: "Just kill them all and close Gitmo, that’s fine. They don’t have to come here, they don’t have to stay there."
Kimberly co-hosted the 2015/16 Fox All-American New Year's Eve party on Fox News. The guest of honor at midnight was Donald Trump, along with his family. Naturally, some people are not going to especially love that association, and others will. That's part of being a news personality.
Kimberly has known her own share of tragedy. Her mom died when she was 11 from leukemia.
Kimberly expresses serious opinions, so when she makes some jokes, people can take it the wrong way. Some will say her "jokes" are her real opinion, that is just how it goes, and who knows, maybe they are correct.
As one example, Kimberly got into a heated discussion about young women and politics. She said:
"But when you're young like that, you think—same reason why young women on juries are not a good idea, they don't get it. They're not in that same life experience of paying the bills, doing the mortgage, kids, community, crime, education, healthcare. They're like healthy and hot and running around without a care in the world."She concluded that courts should be willing to excuse young women for more important tasks: "I just think, excuse them so they can go back on Tinder and Match.com."
So, you can see that Kimberly is not afraid to "push the envelope." That's what makes her show so much fun, and that's why we love our Kimberly.
Word is that Kimberly has a taste for shoes, and that her heel collection — which includes roughly 50 styles from Manolo Blahnik, Yves Saint Laurent, Valentino and Gucci — has its own Twitter account.
Kimberly reported spent several million dollars for a condo on Central Park West, then spent more money renovating it.
Back when Kimberly was married to Gavin Newsom, they were dubbed “The New Kennedys.” Kimberly still carries on the timeless glamour of Jackie O.
Kimberly said this about her marriage to Mayor Newsom:
"But, seriously, this living on different sides of the continent has taken a huge toll personally. The transcontinental marriage is tough -- the only godsend is that we don't have kids. You give up your life in the traditional sense."
"We watch movies, we Tivo all the Sunday news programs, we like to read. We're not partyers. We work a lot."
Kimberly Guilfoyle obviously is an attractive lady with her own unique sense of style. Many would say that, combining her looks with her bubbly personality, Kimberley is one of the most attractive women on television today. She also has a unique look - but that doesn't mean other women aren't mistaken for her.
For some reason, there are scads of photos floating around of other women that are identified as being of Kimberly. I'm not really sure why this is. The number of photos of other women attributed to her seems like an unusually large number compared to just about anyone else I've run across.
In any event, below is a gallery of some of these photos (which are not "fakes," they are just commonly misidentified as being Kimberly Guilfoyle photos). Some of these girls are the spitting image of Kimberly, and others arguably resemble her (slightly in some cases) in certain lighting and poses. And with some of these photos, I think, it is more a question of sheer wishful thinking by some Kimberly fans.
|Robin Meade of CNN and Kimberly Guilfoyle really could be sisters. But, this is Robin, not Kimberly.|
|This is a Dutch lingerie model, Doutzen Kroes. She was a Victoria's Secret Angel until 2015. Doutzen is famous for her toned abs. This shot is often attributed as being Kimberly Guilfoyle.|
|When you look close-up, you can tell it is not Kimberly.|
|This is another Victoria's Secret Angel, Lily Aldridge, but you probably knew that. She is misidentified as Kimberly a lot even though they don't look too much alike.|
|I don't know who this is - but it isn't Kimberly.|
|If you watch a lot of reality tv, you know exactly who this is - and it isn't Kimberly. Need some help? Her initials are KK.|
|This one had me fooled for the longest time. It looks like Kimberly and the type of pose/clothes she uses. The smile screams Kimberly. But, alas, this is not Kimberly, apparently it is Robin Meade again.|
|This is another Victoria's Secret model - Isabel Fontana. I think.|
|A number of Barbara Palvin shots get mislabeled as Kimberly. Barbara Palvin is one of my favorite models and one of the hottest models in Europe. Personally, if I were a woman and Barbara was mistaken for me - I wouldn't complain.|
|For some reason, this gets identified as Kimberly Guilfoyle. But, no, I believe that this is a glamour model, Denise Milani.|
Anyway, photos get mis-attributed all the time. Just trying to give a heads up for any Kimberly fans confused by some of these photos floating around the Internet.
