She was in the headlines during the 90s for her affair with Donald Trump. She was also in the headlines for going ahead and marrying the tycoon but after that, Marla Maples chose to maintain a very low profile.
Now, she has come back in the open. She recently spoke to Oprah Winfrey about her marriage with Donald Trump, her ex-husband now, and also about her feelings for him. The couple parted ways in 1999.
“I still love Donald,” she confessed in an interview with Winfrey.
“I love Eric and Ivanka and Donnie so much. I had the chance to know them when they were young and now to see how well they’re doing just touches my heart. We watch The Apprentice and I cry when I see the kids on it. I’m crazy, I’m that emotional person.”
The two had tied the knot in 1993 and they have a daughter together. Tiffany is now 19 years old.
“I live such a different life than I did, of course, when I was married to Donald,” Maples said.
For one thing, she’s a single mom.
“I’ve had a real blessing of being able to raise Tiffany as a single parent,” Maples said. “Her daddy of course took care of school, her education, and some of our needs, but as far as the day-to-day parenting, I’ve been the one here.”
