Guilfoyle defends conservative roots, says ‘unrecognizable’ ex-hubby Newsom is the one who ‘fell prey’ to radical left

Conservative Kimberly Guilfoyle took a backhanded smack at her former husband, California Governor Gavin Newsom after he claimed that she “fell prey” to the culture at Fox News, informing him that he changed, not her and that he’s literally “unrecognizable” as the man she married.

The two are at war… one that Newsom started evidently. Guilfoyle, 53, did an interview on “The Charle Kirk Show” Wednesday and discussed her ex-husband after he trashed her during a CNN podcast for becoming a right-wing host.

The two were married for five years before going their separate ways in 2006. Newsom was already politically ascending as the mayor of San Francisco.

At the time, the two were deemed a liberal power couple and dubbed “The New Kennedys” in a Harper’s Bazaar magazine spread.

In 2006, Guilfoyle took a job in New York City for a news outlet before landing at Fox News, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Guilfoyle pointed out that she has been a registered “proud Republican and conservative” since she was 18. She claimed Newsom, 55, knew her viewpoints when they got married.

“I got this story sent to me about 57 times last night. This is absurd,” Guilfoyle told Kirk during the interview. “I didn’t change, [Newsom] did. He used to be so proud to fight for small businesses, for entrepreneurs, for those hard-working men and women. And he’s fallen prey to the left, the radical left, that is pushing him so far to the left that it’s unrecognizable.”

“Have you ever seen me as someone led by others, like in a cult mentality?” Guilfoyle asked Kirk. “No. I have been a proud Republican and conservative registering as a Republican [since] 18 years of age.”

Guilfoyle reportedly received a ton of notifications after Newsom made his comments about her on “The Axe Files” podcast Tuesday. He described her as having a “prosecutorial mindset” and being “whip-smart” while claiming she used to hang out with big Democratic names when he started his term as mayor of San Francisco in 2004 before she “changed.”

“She was a different person,” Newsom declared. “She was working for a progressive district attorney.”

“We were close to Kamala [Harris], she knew her well, and she was spending a lot of time in Democratic circles,” he added.

“She had her ambition, I just got elected mayor, and days after I was elected mayor, she moved to New York for a Court TV gig, and then eventually Fox. She fell prey, I think, to the culture at Fox in a deep way,” Newsom asserted. “She would disagree with that assessment, she would perhaps suggest that she found the light. Obviously, we have contrasting points of view.”

Guilfoyle was with Fox News until 2018. At that point in time, she resigned to work on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. She proceeded to gain traction as a right-wing influencer following her engagement to Donald Trump Jr. in 2020.

Newsom remarried in 2008 to leftist actress Jennifer Siebel Newsom, 48. They have four children.

After winning reelection in California as governor in November, it is heavily speculated that Newsom is eyeing a bid for the presidency in 2024. If so, he could find himself running against Guilfoyle’s soon-to-be father-in-law, former President Trump.

Guilfoyle is also predicting that the California governor will run for president in 2024.

“I know he’s going to run for president. He’s always wanted to be president of the United States,” she stated according to The Independent. “You are going to see Gavin Newsom versus Donald J. Trump running against each other for president. Father-in-law and ex-husband.”
