Because we now live in a soap opera, Donald Trump's first ex-wife, Ivana Trump, just claimed in an interview on Monday that she is actually the real First Lady.
Not to be outdone in craziness, shortly after, actual First Lady, Melania Trump, came forward with a statement to prove that she is, in fact, the real real First Lady.
You guys, these people are real classy.
Here's how it all went down...
First, let's take a walk down Trump Marriage Memory Lane.Donald Trump was first married to Ivana (making her the real First Lady, according to her). I guess as his first wife, she has a point? They were together from 1977 to 1992 and had three kids together: Ivanka, Donald Jr., and Eric. They divorced amidst rumors that he was having an affair with Marla Maples. He ended up marrying Maples in 1993. They had Tiffany together and were divorced by 1999. Trump married Melania in 2005, and they had Barron in 2006. As she is Trump's current wife, technically Melania is the First Lady.
But Ivana doesn't see it that way. Ivana was interviewed on Monday, October 9 by Good Morning America in anticipation of her new book, Raising Trump.
