While Kimberly Guilfoyle may be the host of Fox News’s New Year’s Eve coverage, the TV anchor’s background might come as a bit of a surprise.
Guilfoyle, 45, talked to PEOPLE about a few fun facts you may not have known:
She’s a former Victoria’s Secret model
I knew I wanted to go to law school and it ended up being a great way to pay for it. I modeled everything from clothes, swimwear and lingerie, including Victoria’s Secret! I met an incredible number of interesting people through modeling and really learned a lot about self-confidence and self-worth.
She hosted Prince Charles and Camilla as the former First Lady of San Francisco
I did the first official visit of Prince Charles and Camilla when they came to San Francisco; it was one of the three main cities they traveled to in the United States. I spent three days with them and it was a wonderful experience. During one of the formal dinners, I was sat next to Prince Charles who was kind enough to share the rest of his apple tart dessert with me. Yum … Delicious!
She is one of Howard Stern‘s favorite TV personalities
Stern is a BIG fan of our show The Five. It’s turned into a fun love fest. He will talk about us on his show and vice versa. We are very flattered and became the cool kids after he started watching. Howard and Robin are can’t miss radio – love it!
She’s a former actress
There was a movie entitled Happily Even After that appeared in the Tribeca Film Festival. I played an attorney alongside Ed Asner, who played a judge, and Shirley Temple’s niece, Marina Temple Black.
She’s a huge sports fan
I love to watch sports, but play them even more. My very first team was an all-boys soccer team. At the time, I really wanted to play soccer, but there was no girls’ team at my school. So my mom met with the coach and said, ‘Please let Kimberly try out with the boys, but don’t take her because I am asking you: only if she’s good enough.’
See Guilfoyle on Fox’s special New Year’s Eve program, All American New Year, airing Dec. 31 from 9 p.m. to 12:30 a.m.
