ABC News is giving us Dick Clark on New Year’s Eve (NYE), and while he will be “rockin'” as he has been for as long as your grandfather (since 1972, according to Vanity Fair), the younger generation is wanting something a little more current and hip and eclectic, especially those who want to know how some of the presidential candidates are ringing in the new year. Ditto for the baby boomers, who do not want to be reminded by the former American Bandstand host of how much they (and him) have aged as they ring in yet another year. So what is the alternative?
Fox News Channel thinks it is their All American New Year, which features one of the hottest female television hostesses on the planet: Kelly Guilfoyle. This female media powerhouse is Latina afterall, and as an educated attorney (a former prosecutor) she knows a thing or two about safety on a hot party night like this, so expect some tips. But Guilfoyle also knows how to walk a runway too and have some party night fun, as she was a Victoria’s Secret model in the past, so expect a killer outfit and shoes, along with a million dollar smile to go with her winning personality. And when it comes to smoozing with presidential candidates that plan to appear on the NYE event, who better than a former First Lady of San Francisco?
Donald Trump, the mover and shaker in New York (and elsewhere in the country, like Miami, where he will be ringing in New Year’s Eve at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach) obviously thinks Fox News’ hostess with the most is the go-to NYE televised special or he would not be planning on making an appearance from his party perch in order to talk with her and Eric Bolling, who will be co-hosting the event with Kimberly. Guilfoyle told TV Guide that Trump was showing up on their NYE special exclusively, which is a real coup for The Five co-hosts. And viewers will love getting a glimpse of the luxury accommodations of the man who might soon grace the White House.
But Trump is not the only presidential candidate game in town, as other 2016 presidential candidates are also slated to appear Thursday night on the FNC special. So if you are planning to avoid traffic and bring in the New Year from the comfort of your own home (like The Donald), then kick off your shoes and find the best perch in front of the tellie when you tune into Fox News’ All American New Year special at 10 p.m. ET. And be prepared to laugh, cry and be shocked, as Fox News (and Kimberly Guilfoyle) tends to deliver in all three categories on a regular basis, but especially on a hot celebration night like NYE.
