Mooch ro­mances Fox News star

New York Post - - NEWS -

AN­THONY Scara­mucci, the in­fa­mous, fiery, short-lived for­mer White House com­mu­ni­ca­tions di­rec­tor, is woo­ing glam­orous Fox News an­chor

Kim­berly Guil­foyle, mul­ti­ple sources tell Page Six — even as the cou­ple deny they are an item.

Page Six ex­clu­sively re­vealed on July 29 that the Mooch’s wife of three years, Dei­dre Ball, had filed for di­vorce while nine months preg­nant. Scara­mucci lasted 11 days in the DC job and was ousted by Pres­i­dent Trump on July 31.

The rea­son for his fir­ing was said to be due to an ex­ple­tive-laden in­ter­view he gave to the New Yorker — where he blasted for­mer White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and ex-Trump ad­viser Steve Ban­non. Ac­cord­ing to po­lit­i­cal re­ports at the time, the Mooch was in­fu­ri­ated by re­porters tweet­ing that he had been at a din­ner with Trump and First Lady Me­la­nia on July 26, along with Guil­foyle, which he was said to have feared would “raise sus­pi­cion.” We re­vealed just three days later that his wife had filed for di­vorce, but it is still not fi­nal­ized.

Scara­mucci and Guil­foyle — a co-host of Fox News’ “The Five” and for­mer as­sis­tant district at­tor­ney and first lady of San Fran­cisco — have re­peat­edly de­nied they are a cou­ple, even amid re­ports of them house-hunt­ing to­gether in Man­hat­tan and of a ro­man­tic trip to Rome last month, where they were pho­tographed cud­dling up at a char­ity gala.

A source close to the Mooch in­sisted he and Guil­foyle were “just very good friends who en­joy each oth­ers’ com­pany . . . It is too early to call them a cou­ple. He is busy es­tab­lish­ing his post-White House ca­reer.” The source added that Scara­mucci was fo­cused on his new prospects, such as speak­ing gigs and TV and movie deals, hav­ing pre­vi­ously sold his com­pany Sky­bridge Cap­i­tal be­fore his move into pol­i­tics.

A source close to Guil­foyle added, “Kim­berly thinks the world of An­thony. He is one of her best friends, but they are not a yet a cou­ple. He is still go­ing through a di­vorce. She is a sin­gle mom, and her son is her pri­or­ity.” Reps for Guil­foyle and Scara­mucci de­clined to com­ment on the record.
