In 2001 Miz Guilfoyle was married in a glitzy and much-discussed wedding to California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, then the beau-hunky lefty liberal city supervisor and later mayor of San Francisco.
In 2004 she moved to New York City to pursue a television career and the pair publicly split in 2005, no doubt at least in part due to the obvious difficulties of their bi-coastiality.
In late May 2006, three months after her divorce from Mister Newsom was finalized, Miz Guilfoyle hitched her wagon a second time to multi-disciplinary designer and style arbitor Eric Villency.
Four and a half months later she/they produced a boy child, an heir to the New York-based Villency furniture fortune, one presumes.
The smokey voiced brunette—who bears a strong resemblance to former supermodel Janice Dickenson—won’t likely be a household name for those who don’t watch one of the many cable new channels.Before she hosted Both Sides on Court TV in 2004 and appeared as a legal analyst on Anderson Cooper 360 (CNN), Miz Guilfoyle toiled in the District Attorneys’ offices in both Los Angeles and San Francisco where she successfully prosecuted at least one high-profile case that involved a deadly dog mauling.For the last five or six years the stylish Miz Guilfoyle found her professional niche, primarily, on the Fox network as a regular, rotating co-host on The Five and a contributor of legal analysis to a few other pundit-driven programs like The O’Reilly Factor and Hannity.Read below: — This book, and much of your career, you say, is inspired by the lessons from your childhood. My mother was just everything to me, I loved her so much, I always wanted to be around her. She was a warm woman who worked in education with people with emotional challenges. Think about it as chapters in your life — don’t be afraid to cross the threshold, walk through the door and see what’s on the other side. I assume the lessons from your parents inspired your decision to get into that field…? When you’re forced to survive, you learn to navigate for yourself and advocate for others. I wanted to give readers something worth their while for investing in me.I got my sense of giving back and how when you have many blessings, pay it forward. I had to go through, a lot to be able to heal, going through her illness — she passed away from Leukemia when I was young — and how it affected our little family. I became a prosecutor because I got my greatest joy in working with victims of violent crimes. Everyone else in your business seems to be writing about politics. Yes, it’s autobiographical in nature, and it’s by no means political. Much of the book talks about dealing with frightening interviews or other professional situations.
