Opening up about his 10 days as White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci denied an affair with Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, explained that he trusted New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza because of family history and said he plans to “go dark” for a while.
Scaramucci told the Huffington Post‘s Vicky Ward that he was upset last Wednesday when political reporters, including Lizza, tweeted that he was at dinner with President Trump, first lady Melania Trump, Fox News’ Sean Hannity, ex-Fox News executive Bill Shine, “The Five” co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle, and several others.
Scaramucci didn’t like the mention of Guilfoyle because of unsourced speculation about them. The HuffPost said he “strongly denies having a sexual relationship with Guilfoyle.” Trump confidant Roger Stone, who said he is friends with Guilfoyle, told HuffPost that she and Scaramucci “are very close friends but nothing more … He is way too short for Kimberly.”
Through a Fox News spokesperson, Guilfoyle said she’s known Scaramucci for years through her work at Fox News and the two are “good friends.”
