Early Life

Kimberly Guilfoyle was born on March 9, 1969, in San Francisco, California. She grew up in the Mission District of San Francisco and in Westlake, Daly City, California. Her mother, Mercedes, was a Puerto Rican special education teacher. Sadly, she died of leukemia when Kimberly was just eleven years old. Her father, Anthony Guilfoyle, was born in Ennis, County Clare, Ireland, and immigrated to the United States in 1957 at the age of 20. Although he was still not a U.S. citizen, he was drafted in 1958 and served four years in the Army. He became a construction worker and then a real estate investor until his death in 2008.

Kim graduated magna cum laude from the University of California Davis. She received her Juris Doctor from the University of San Francisco School of Law in 1994.

Guilfoyle worked briefly as a prosecutor in San Francisco after law school; however, she lost her job in 1996 when the new District Attorney Terence Hallinan fired 14 city prosecutors. She then moved to Los Angeles, where she spent four years working as a Deputy District attorney. Here, she worked on adult and juvenile cases for domestic violence, narcotics, kidnapping, robbery, arson, sexual assault, and homicide cases. For her work, she received several awards, including Prosecutor of the Month.  In 2000, Kimberly was rehired at the San Francisco District Attorney's office as Assistant D.A. Guilfoyle earned a conviction while co-prosecuting James Hammer in the 2002 People v. Noel and Knoller case. The case was a second-degree murder trial involving a dog mauling. Both Guilfoyle and the case gained international attention. In 2008, she became a member of the La Raza Lawyers Association.

She joined Fox News in 2006 as the host of the weekend show "The Lineup." The show was canceled a year later. Kimberly remained a regular contributor for Fox News and was later picked up as co-host of "The Five" in 2011, where she remained a host until 2018. She began hosting "Outnumbered" regularly in 2014 until the show settled on a permanent host.
