Kimberly Guilfoyle has done it all in her 47 years on this planet. She is a member of Five on Fox News. But to tell her whole story, we have to start at the beginning. Kimberly was born in San Francisco, California to a Puerto Rican mother and an Irish father.
After graduating from Mercy High School, Kimberly attended the University of California, Davis. She graduated magna cum laude from UCD, but she wouldn’t stop there. She studied at Trinity College, Dublin in Ireland, and she would earn her Juris Doctor from the University of San Francisco School of Law in 1994.
Career & Five on Fox News
As you can tell from Kimberly’s highly impressive educational background, she’s sharp as a tack. But not only was she hitting the books hard back then, she also turned heads by modeling for Macy’s and Victoria’s Secret. Even though I’m thoroughly convinced Kimberly could’ve made it big as a model, she put her law degree to good use.
Kimberly worked for a short period as a prosecutor in San Francisco before making the transition to a Deputy District Attorney position in Los Angeles. After four years in Los Angeles, Kimberly went back to San Francisco in 2000 to work as an Assistant District Attorney.
In 2005, Kimberly left the courtroom behind, moving to New York to host Both Sides on Court TV. Although the show didn’t last very long, it was clear that Kimberly’s broadcasting career was going to flourish. She would then move to Fox News Channel, where she would host The Lineup from 2007-2008. Kimberley’s next hosting gig would be on The Strategy Room, as she ran the ship for 23 episodes from 2009-2011.
Kimberly’s career would take a major leap in 2011 when she was named one of the co-host’s on Fox News’ The Five. The show about news stories, political issues, and pop culture has been insanely popular, and she has appeared in a whopping 1,064 episodes from 2011-2016. Kimberly would also nab a prominent hosting gig in 2014, as she was named a co-host for Outnumbered. She made appearances in 50 episodes of the TV series from 2014-2016.
Although we’ve been focusing on Kimberly’s hosting career, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention some of the shows she’s contributed to as a guest. She’s been on Anderson Cooper 360°, Larry King Live, Good Morning America, The View, Fox and Friends, Hannity, and The O’Reilly Factor. Kimberly has made 116 appearances on The O’Reilly Factor in the recurring segment “Is It Legal?.”
How much does Kimberly Guilfoyle make a year?
According to Not Just Rich, Kimberly has a net worth of $5 million, and she makes a salary of roughly $840,000 a year.
Kimberly’s personal life has been noteworthy as well, as she has been married to two prominent men. In 2001, Kimberly married Gavin Newsom, who would later be elected as the mayor of San Francisco in 2003. Newsom would serve two terms from 2004-2011, but the couple finalized their divorce in February of 2006.
Kimberly would marry again in 2006, tying the knot with furniture heir Eric Villency in May. Later that same year, she gave birth to her first child on October 4. Kimberly and Eric named their son Ronan, and they would get divorced in 2009.
