Fox News Confirms Kimberly Guilfoyle Has Left the Network

Kimberly Guilfoyle, who has worked as an on-air panelist on Fox News programs like “The Five” and “Outnumbered” since 2006, is no longer with the 21st Century Fox-owned network, according to a statement released Friday afternoon. She is widely expected to join the parade of Fox News personalities and executives who have gone to work for the Trump administration.

Guilfoyle, who has been linked romantically to Donald Trump Jr. in recent months, has long been said to have strong ties to the president. Fox News did not cite specific factors behind the parting of the ways. Previous reports in Vanity Fair and CNN suggested Guilfoyle, who was once married to Gavin Newsom, now lieutenant governor of California, might now work with Trump supporters in the run-up to U.S. elections in 2018.

Fox News Channel has in the past cut ties with contributors who decided to take part in political campaigns, including former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee. He hosted a Fox News program starting in 2008, but left it in early 2015 as he set about to explore a bid for the presidency. And it has reined in on-air employees who appeared to take part in political campaigns, including prime-time host Sean Hannity.

“The Five” won’t become “The Four.” Fox News said Katie Pavlich, a conservative commentator who often serves as an alternate on the program, was likely to fill in Friday evening.

Guilfoyle has been under outside scrutiny since her relationship with the Trump scion came to light in May and June. How could a broadcaster with personal ties to the First Family offer unbiased comment during news programming? The answer, for now, appears to be that one cannot.

Other Fox News personnel have moved from the New York building that houses the signature “curvy couch” of “Fox & Friends.” to the White House. Heather Nauert, a former Fox News anchor, now serves in the U.S. State Department. Bill Shine, the network’s former co-president, recently joined the White House to oversee communications, John Bolton , a former Fox News contributor, has become Trump’s National Security Advisor.
