Former reality show star Donald Trump’s first wife, Ivana Trump, called herself the “first lady” during an interview Monday ahead of the release of her book, “Raising Trump” and that seems to have upset the actual first lady, Melania.
“I have the direct number to White House but I don’t really want to call him there because Melania is there and I don’t really want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like that because I’m basically first Trump wife, OK? I’m first lady, OK?” Ivana told ABC, apparently joking, but who knows. Since November, we’re witnessing a dysfunctional reality show and I’m not into those.
Through her spokesperson, Melania Trump fired back slamming Ivana’s comments as “attention-seeking and self-serving noise” because there’s nothing else going on in the world.
The White House wanted Ivana to know that Melania is the for reals first lady, so there!

“Mrs. Trump has made the White House a home for Barron and the President. She loves living in Washington, DC, and is honored by her role as first lady of the United States,” the statement reads. “She plans to use her title and role to help children, not sell books. There is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex, this is unfortunately only attention-seeking and self-serving noise.”
Watch the interview:
Well, Melania is the Third Wife but she is also the first lady, for a short while anyway. Perhaps the two should appear on the Jerry Springer show featuring a monkey knife fight in a cage followed by bikini mudwrestling directly afterward, all to fight over a small-handed, 71-year-old narcissistic windbag.
