Guilfoyle had been a longtime co-host of "The Five", but a reports that she was dating the recently divorced Donald Trump Jr. have been followed by new career opportunities.

Reports of "The Five" co-host's impending departure swirled for hours on Friday as Fox News publicists remained mum.

"Having [Kim Guilfoyle] on the trail campaigning with [Donald Trump Jr.] for Republicans this fall is a win for the entire GOP", Surabian tweeted.

"FOX News has parted ways with Kimberly Guilfoyle", the official statement reads, offering no further elaboration.

While ardent Trump supporters populate conservative-leaning Fox News programs throughout the day, the network does not employ hosts who have any formal role in an election campaign.


They took their relationship public in late June, with Guilfoyle posting a steady supply of cozy couple pics on Instagram ever since. She was considered for White House press secretary past year after Sean Spicer departed the administration.

IJR reached out to Fox News for comment but has not received a response.

Donald Trump Jr.'s spokesman put a positive spin on Guilfoyle's split with Fox.

Guilfoyle is no stranger to the political spotlight, she was once married to former San Francisco mayor, Gavin Newsom. However, he said that a fourth source close to Guilfoyle, 49, and Trump Jr., 40, said the departure was her decision.
