Fox News Downplays Rumors Kimberly Guilfoyle Is Replacing Sean Spicer — But Her Own Response Is Much Less Convincing…

Kimberly Guilfoyle didn’t start rumors she was going to replace Sean Spicer as White House Press Secretary — but she isn’t exactly stifling them either!

After the NY Times reported Donald Trump was talking up the FOX News host, she gave an interview about the whole notion that frankly read like a job interview.

She spent most of the time explaining why she’d do a great job speaking for Trump, even talking about how tough it would be to leave her gig on The Five.

Shortly after, her current employer released an official statement which seemed to suggest she wasn’t going anywhere:

“Kimberly is a valued member of the FOX News primetime lineup, and is under a long-term contract with the network.”

In other words, “She’s ours, and you can’t have her.” Ha!

Guilfoyle’s own concurrent statement didn’t quite mirror the network’s. Through a spokesperson, Kimberly Guilfoyle said:

“As I stated in the interview, I really love what I do and my job co-hosting The Five is tough to beat.”

Yeah, on its face that’s praise for the network. But saying it would be “tough to beat” is hardly backing down from her statement in the interview, in which she pretty clearly stated that even though she loved Fox, she’d totally leave for a White House job.

It’s actually a pretty diplomatic, winking answer that can’t technically get her in trouble.

Dang, maybe she will make a good Press Secretary!
