Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, is leaving the network and has plans to join Donald Trump Jr. and work with America First, a super PAC supporting President Donald Trump, according to a report from People.
Reports of “The Five” co-host’s impending departure swirled for hours on Friday as Fox News publicists remained mum. Late in the day, a Fox News spokesperson emailed reporters a short statement: “FOX News has parted ways with Kimberly Guilfoyle.”
The reason for her departure remains unclear.
HuffPost’s Yashar Ali reported that, according to three sources, Guilfoyle did not leave Fox News voluntarily. However, he said that a fourth source close to Guilfoyle, 49, and Trump Jr., 40, said the departure was her decision. HuffPost also reported that Guilfoyle’s team is in “separation negotiations now.”
The statement did not include a timeline, but a representative of Guilfoyle told HuffPost that she was still a Fox employee as of Friday night and that her departure is “mutual and amicable.”
What a shame. I love her on “The Five.”
We wish her luck in her new endeavor.
