Following her co-host Dana Perino, who visited  Barnes & Nobles in May, Kimberly Guilfoyle of Fox News’ “The Five and Outnumbered,” attracted a large crowd of fans at her book signing Saturday afternoon in The Villages. Many supporters traveled from places such as Orlando and waited in line for hours before Guilfoyle’s appearance. They wanted to meet the reporter and get an autographed copy of her new book, “Making the Case: How to be Your Own Best Advocate.”

Among the fans who waited with much anticipation to meet Guilfoyle were Mark and Lisa Gallo of the Village of Bonita. Mark had waited for the store to open at 10 a.m. and was the first person in line for the book signing event. His wife Lisa followed him an hour later.

The couple is a very ardent follower of “The Five” and considers Guilfoyle a favorite of theirs, which made the long wait worth it after finally meeting her. They hope to see all of the hosts of “The Five” eventually come together to The Villages.

David and Genny Mills of the Village of Lynnhaven were very delighted to meet  Guilfoyle. During his conversation with Guilfoyle, David received a hug after joking with her about knowing her mentor in the San Francisco District Attorney’s office, Michael Hartmann.

“I said, ‘Michael Hartmann said hello’,” explained David and stated that Guilfoyle was surprised that he knew him. He then joked to the reporter, “He [Michael Hartmann] told me that you should give me a big hug,” which resulted in a shared hug between the two.

Guilfoyle was not the first Fox News personality David has met as he also attended a previous Fox News-related event at The Villages where he had the chance to chat with contributors and reporters such as Michelle Malkin.

“The Five” is celebrating its fourth anniversary and many fans have lauded Guilfoyle for doing a great job on the show.

Guilfoyle’s new book inspires readers to “make their own case” and shares personal anecdotes of her experiences from being a hardworking attorney to a prominent journalist and legal analyst.
