Kimberly Guilfoyle Has Come A Long Way From Victoria’s Secret Model To Possible Trump Press Secretary
Word is that President-elect Donald Trump is getting closer to naming a Press Secretary, and Kimberly Guilfoyle is a finalist. But Guilfoyle has come a long way to the point of being considered for a cabinet position. Currently, Guilfoyle works for Fox News, and before that, Court TV, but many people don’t know that she got her professional start as s Victoria’s Secret catalog model.
Trump has made several controversial choices in his search to fill his cabinet positions, including Stephen Bannon, who reportedly has issues with women and Jews, despite the fact that Trump’s daughter Ivanka and her husband are Jewish, according to a previous report by the Inquisitr. But unlike some of Trump’s other cabinet choices, Guilfoyle does have excellent and appropriate credentials, as she has been on air for years, and also has a law degree. It probably does not hurt that Guilfoyle is easy on the eyes.

Kimberly Guilfoyle has lived many lives in four years, and now she’s being considered for Donald Trump’s Press Secretary says Heavy. She is a Fox News anchor, and has been a prosecutor. Guilfoyle has also been married twice, most notably to Gavin Newsom, who was then the mayor of San Fransisco (Guilfoyle was for a time the First Lady of San Fransisco), and is now the California Lieutenant Governor under Jerry Brown.
RELATED REPORTS BY THE INQUISITR
Guilfoyle joined Fox News in 2006 where she hosted a crime show. She currently hosts The Five. Guilfoyle also serves as a legal analyst for FNC. Back in San Fransisco, Guilfoyle was an assistant district attorney who prosecuted high profile cases like the San Fransisco dog mauling case, where a couple kept two large dogs who killed a neighbor in the apartment hallway.
But perhaps the former gig that sticks out the most on Kimberly Guilfoyle’s resume is her time as a Victoria’s Secret model, according to Cosmopolitan. These were the days before the televised fashion show where the work was mostly in the catalog. She says that she knew she wanted to go to law school, and that through modeling, she was able to make money, and meet a great deal of people. Guilfoyle attributes her success and bold choices to the way she was raised.
“My mother taught me early on not to be afraid to put myself out there — especially as a woman. She raised me to believe that anything a guy could do, I could do better.”
Another attractive part of Kimberly Guilfoyle’s background to the Trump administration is her connection to Puerto Rico, and her Puerto Rican heritage. Guilfoyle explained that her mother, Mercedes, was born in Puerto Rico, and adjusting to life in a new country wasn’t easy.
“They had to jump into a new community and really learn English, assimilate, and adapt — and I saw that. I grew up in that community. My mother, oddly enough, really wanted to pursue a career in law, but at the time she had children and was working as a teacher.”
On the other side of her family, she also got to understand the immigrant experience. Anthony Guilfoyle was born in Ireland, in County Clare, says the San Fransisco Gate. Anthony Guilfoyle rose to prominence as a political advisor, and is best known for advising Kimberly Guilfoyle’s former husband, Gavin Newsom.
Politico shared that Guilfoyle, as an accomplished woman and Latina, would be better as the face of the Trump administration than a white man.
“Who do you want talking about Immigration? A Latino. When you have to make decisions about pro-life justices, do you want a man or a woman?”
