Kimberly Guilfoyle is an extremely popular FOX News personality. She is a co-host on The Five and frequently fills in as a guest host on other shows. This week, she left the network very suddenly, without even getting a chance to address the issue with viewers.
The Daily Caller reports:
REPORT: GUILFOYLE FOX NEWS EXIT NOT VOLUNTARY — HOST REPLACED FRIDAY, NOT ALLOWED TO SAY GOODBYE
Kimberly Guilfoyle didn’t take her usual spot on “The Five” Friday afternoon after it was reported that the longtime Fox News host would be parting ways with the network.
Not only did sources tell DailyMail.com that Guilfoyle was purposefully not given the chance to say goodbye to co-hosts and viewers Friday, but HuffPost also reported that her departure from the network was not “voluntary.”
Townhall editor and Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich filled in for Guilfoyle Friday.
“Fox News has parted ways with Kimberly Guilfoyle,” a Fox News spokesperson said in what HuffPost described as a “terse statement.”
News broke on Friday that the 49-year-old Guilfoyle, who has been with Fox News since February 2006, was stepping down from her role on “The Five” to take a position with America First PAC.
Some people have speculated that her relationship with Donald Trump Jr. may have something to do with the sudden development:

Even if that were the case, the network should allow her to say goodbye to her fans.
