Maybe Fox News really does do its recruiting by flipping through a Victoria’s Secret catalog.
Five days after “Fox & Friends” host Brian Kilmeade was branded a sexist pig for joking that his network shops for female talent in the racy lingerie catalog, legal analyst Kimberly Guilfoyle was outed as a former underwear model.
Guilfoyle, 43, who co-hosts “The Five” show, posed for Victoria’s Secret — and Macy’s as well — while she was a law student at the University of San Francisco in 1994.
After graduating, the brunette beauty worked as a prosecutor in Los Angeles and San Francisco before making the jump to television as legal analyst on “Anderson Cooper 360” in New York.
After graduating she quit the fashion industry, and went on to work as a deputy district attorney in Los Angeles and an assistant district attorney in San Francisco.
Her first husband is former San Francisco mayor, Gavin Newsom, and during his term in office she was the city's First Lady.
After their divorce in 2006, she went on to marry furniture heir Eric Villency on the island of Barbados and gave birth to her first child, a son named Ronan Anthony, the same year.
However three years later it was announced that they had separated.

On Friday, a male listener called in to Fox radio show Kilmeade & Friends to say that commentator Alisyn Camerota, who was subbing for Gretchen Carlson, was doing a good job. Sensing an opportunity to make a terribly awkward joke about female Fox employees, host Brian Kilmeade said they source all their female staffers from Victoria's Secret:
"It was actually, we go into the Victoria’s Secret catalogue, and we said, ‘Can any of these people talk?’ And they all could and they all went to college."
