Gavin Newsom, her ex-husband, has said that Kimberly Guilfoyle “fell prey” to conservative culture while working at Fox News and joined the right. Guilfoyle is a conservative media figure who is engaged to Donald Trump Jr.
“This is absurd,” she told the Charlie Kirk Show on Wednesday. “I have been a proud Republican and conservative, registering as a Republican at 18 years of age.”

“I didn’t change, he did,” she added of Mr. Newsom, whom she married in 2001. “He used to be so proud to fight for small businesses, for entrepreneurs, for hardworking men and women… He’s fallen prey to the Left, the radical Left, that is pushing him so far to the left that it’s unrecognizable.”
The remarks come in response to recent statements made by Mr. Newsom on CNN’s The Axe Files, in which he claimed that Ms. Guilfoyle was a “different person” than she was during their marriage.
“She’s got a prosecutorial mindset, she always had that. She’s whip-smart and she fell prey, I think, [to] the culture at Fox,” Mr. Newsom said. “In a deep way, she would disagree with that assessment — she’d perhaps suggest she ‘found the light.’ Obviously, we have contrasting points of view.”
