After all these years, Ivana Trump still isn't willing to forgive Marla Maples for breaking her marriage. During her interviews, she refuses to call Maples by name, addressing her as a “showgirl” and blaming her for the scandalous affair with Donald.
Ivana’s children grew up having the same feelings towards Marla. Recently, Ivana revealed the reason why her daughter Ivanka likes Trump’s current wife and it says a lot about her feelings towards the woman who broke her parents’ marriage.
The first lady and the first daughter
Journalist Elaina Plott interviewed Donald Trump’s ex-wife Ivana for a revealing article that was published in The Atlantic.
During the candid chat, Plott asked what kind of relationship Ivanka has with Melania. Ivana revealed that even though they might not be “affectionate”, the first daughter likes her step-mother “fine.”
She likes her fine, because she didn’t cause me to break up the marriage like the other one—I don’t even want to pronounce her name.
It’s understandable that Ivana’s resentment towards Maples transferred to her daughter as well. However, Marla herself has never thought she was Trump’s “mistress.”
She said that she believed their relationship had “a real purity” in them, that they could do some great things together. Well, to each their own.
