Melania Trump hawks QVC jewelry line, has a “different romance” with The Donald

Melania Trump has a new jewelry line on QVC which she’s promoting, because all you need to do to get a jewelry, fashion or perfume line is to be some kind of celebrity. Sadly, it’s true. I watched her promotional interview with ET fully expecting to mock her, because it’s striking how much she looks like her husband and I expected her to be as much of an ass as he is. She has the same fug swoop in her hair as Donald, she’s similarly orange, and she has the exact same smug expression as he does on the red carpet. They look perfectly suited for each other, and that’s not a compliment. In the video she seemed warmer and less crazy than I was expecting, so she must have retained enough of her pre-Trump personality to be a more decent person than he is. (Which isn’t much of an accomplishment.) She’s her own person, and she has her own jewelry line, which she of course claims to have been involved with “from A to Z.” (They all do that.) The jewelry looks like copies of more expensive pieces, it’s gaudy and not my taste, but it’s pretty for that type of jewelry.

The takeaway from this interview are Melania’s comments about her “romance” with her husband. She says he’s romantic, but then she hedges and says their romance is “different” than other people have and that they’re both “very independent.” She also talks about all the things they do together and not how she feels or what a great guy she’s married to. I get the sense that it’s more of a business arrangement that she’s tolerating, but that’s what you would expect from anyone married to Donald Trump. He’s been ranting and going off the rails lately, would you assume he had a great home life? If he weren’t loaded and famous he’d been just another conspiracy theorist yelling at the neighbor’s cat. Here’s more:

Melania Trump has quite a life with business baron Donald Trump. The former model sat down with ET to discuss her recently launched jewelry collection with QVC as well her relationship with her husband.

Her husband’s many career happenings in combination with her own professional duties as well as raising their 6-year-old son make the couple’s time together limited. Mrs. Trump says the two maintain a romance unlike the average one.

“He is a romantic guy,” she said inside of her home. “…It’s a different romance than maybe some other people [have] but he’s [a] very different man anyway…but we have a great relationship and we are both very independent. We love what we do…and that’s the most important [thing]. [We] have great quality time together.”

The couple met when Melania, a native of Slovenia, was modeling in New York in the ’90s. Mr. Trump proposed to her in 2004 and they were married the following year. Although they are both busy in the business world, Melania says they cherish the time they do have together.

“We love to go to the movies. We love to just have a dinner, the two of us with friends,” she mentioned as some of their favorite activities together. “We love to go to Mira Lago, spend time [with] the three of us: Barron, Donald, and me together; playing sport; and just spending time together, no matter where [we] are just having a great time.”

The creative-minded former model launched her first jewelry line earlier this week with home shopping channel QVC. Having been immersed in fashion for the bulk of her life, Melania is enjoying creating her own products.

Ooh, do you think this is Melania’s exit strategy? Like is she lining up her own work so she has enough cash to pay lawyer’s fees when she goes for the big bucks? This is Donald’s third marriage, and of course he has a prenup. Maybe Melania is making sure she has enough of her own money to supplement whatever she’s going to get. Is it wrong to root for someone to get divorced, even if they’re Donald Trump? I’m actually rooting for Melania after seeing this video.

Melania and Donald are shown on 10-2-12, 12-5-12 and 1-6-13. Credit:

    He’s such a pig! I couldn’t imagine being married to that. His ego alone makes me vomit. If i was her i would be off doing my own thing to. He is vile.

    • Chicagogurl17 says:

      ^ this. I can’t imagine ever loving that face. Rolling over and seeing that — or do all rich people sleep in seperate rooms? Either way, his charming personality matches his good looks.

    • MaiGirl says:

      He is just AGGRESSIVELY gross. I mean, sometimes I think that the awful hair and the Sunny Delight tan are just to screw with the public, like “Yeah, I’m ugly, reprehensible, and an utter waste of protein, but I’M DONALD TRUMP, BITCHES!!!”–and then he goes and builds another light-up, phallic tower. She’s earning every penny, cuz ain’t enough money in the world.

      I saw Queen of Versailles a bit ago, and there is a very revealing story about the tower battle between Trump and the other guy. There isn’t much said, but it is a perfect encapsulation of how these little robber-barons think.

  2. Monie says:

    Ugh, I’m sure their romance is purely “lights off”! As horrid as Trump looks these days with clothes on I bet his naked body resembles a butterscotch landslide. *puke*

  3. DeltaJuliet says:

    All of those pictures are just horrible

  4. MsAubra says:

    Her face has been snatched to the furthest ends of the hemisphere…

  5. bella says:

    sad when an incredibly gorgeous woman tinkers with her face. what did she do?
    and…sorry…i could watch and listen to the donald’s antics all day…
    it’s so entertaining!

  6. RN says:

    This interview brings to mind my favorite lines from Jennifer Coolidge’s character in “Best in Show”:

    [Discussing her 80 year old husband who's 44 years her senior]” Leslie and I have an amazing relationship and it’s very physical, he still pushes all my buttons. People say ‘oh but he’s so much older than you’ and you know what, I’m the one having to push him away. We have so much in common, we both love soup and snow peas, we love the outdoors, and talking and not talking. We could not talk or talk forever and still find things to not talk about.”

  7. T.C. says:

    This has exit strategy all over it. She knows he will at least pay child support but with the prenup she’s going to need more money to live on.

  8. gogoGorilla says:


    In every one of those pictures, she looks like she’s putting a hex on the viewer, no? I guess that’s her clueless version of smizing?

  9. YummyMummy says:

    She looks like she is squinting in every picture.

    • The Original Tiffany says:

      I think it is because her face is pulled so tight. She looks really different these days.

      Hey EY Online, it isn’t Mira Lago. From the random facts I remember file. Mar-A-Lago. I think he and Ivana had a huge fight over it when they divorced.

  10. Michelle says:

    She has had a jewelry line for a few years now. I remember her being on QVC a few years ago.

  11. Sarah says:

    Does she have tons of filler in her face or are her eyes naturally like that?

  12. Cody says:

    I am sure the Donald is heavily invested in her jewelry line, so she will never be that independent . Could you imagine if he became President of the United States and she was our First Lady it sends a shiver down my spine.

  13. Poink says:

    She looks angry in every pic. I guess I would be too if I had to deal with Trump and his old man ass all the time. Ewww

  14. hoya_chick says:

    Her plastic surgery makes her look evil. Seriously, she has one facial expression, and it is evil!

    I can’t believe they have been married since ’04 and not gotten a divorce yet. Ha! I remember her wedding dress (Dior I think) being an over the top monstrosity, but look who she was marrying right?

    That house looks so gaudy.

  15. Lari says:

    I recently saw an old picture of Donald and Ivanna Trump…Melania is a younger version of Ivanna (or Ivanka…I know one is the daughter and the other the former wife). Its gross and weird but he’s gross and weird (and cray-cray) so I guess it makes sense

  16. Mari says:

    I disagree on the exit strategy. Did you see how big she smiled when talking about him? She lit up like a freakin Christmas tree. She’s comfortable with their relationship, whatever the arrangement is, believe me.

  17. Ellie66 says:

    Why does she look like she is squinting in every picture. Yikes!

  18. melmel says:

    she has been with him forever before they got married

    Gaudy jewelry. Like she would ever wear the fake

  19. Jayna says:

    She always had a hard face and beady eyes, yet was pretty — or maybe striking is the right word. But aging those type features sometimes don’t age well, it appears. She looks rough.

    • Marie Antoinette Jr. says:

      this^ It was like separately her features were normal or verging on odd or even ugly, but together it was stunning. She was shockingly pretty.
      Now she is starting to look a little cro-magnon-y to me.

      I guess it’s true what they say, married couples do eventually start to resemble each other.

  20. Chickie Baby says:

    He cannot be the easiest person to live with. He’s just too intense and comes across as that way all the time—every interview, sound bite, TV appearance—he’s just WAY too overpowering to tolerate. I can’t imagine trying to live with him in any form or fashion. (And really, can anyone see him wearing ratty old sweats, playing on the floor with the grandkids? He’s not a warm-and-fuzzy kind of guy.)

  21. bluhare says:

    Oh dear. She loves eyeliner more than the Middletons.

  22. Bella says:

    She ‘obeys” him….thats why this has lasted.

  23. hopperlea says:

    I cannot stand Trump and this is pretty much an open marriage if you ask me. There is no other reason why he would still be married if it was not. No way is Donald a faithful type of husband.

    Ever since Trump said that he has never changed any of his childrens diapers, I have disliked him even more than I already did. He is just an annoying punk.

  24. Patrice says:

    I’ve always thought Melania had gumption ever since that b*llsy reporter asked her years back if she would “be with Donald if he weren’t rich”. Her epic response (without skipping a beat): “Do you think he would be with me if I weren’t beautiful?” It.Was.Awesome. :D At least she’s not in denial about what their relationship’s about.

    That said. idk if I actually buy it but, the things she described doing with Donald seem like average couple-y activities to me. I won’t hate on them for that. P.S. I love that sleeveless flippy white dress so much :) It’s gorgeous! (I think I’ve seen VB in the black version too.)

  25. KellyinSeattle says:

    Can you imagine trying to win a marital argument with the Donald? I mean, I actually am rooting for them and find them kind of wacky in an irritating but harmless way. Her jewelry is awful. She always looks mad, too.

  26. Madriani's Girl says:

    Her eyes are so slitty, they make Taylor Swift and Renee Zellweger look like their eyes are bugging out their heads. She looks clueless as hell to me.

    And as far as The Combover goes, he looks like the type of guy who only like the missionary position, wouldn’t deign to give a woman head, yet he fully expects her to do whatever he wants her to, up to and including gross acts with plastic.

  27. blonde on the dock says:

    They look like cartoon characters. Scary cartoon characters.

  28. Isabella says:

    I like her, i think she has a great sense of style. i dont know what she sees in him but well, we all know it. i hope she gets out of it soon and wealthy cause hes a pig and you get what you deserve and he deserves to pay money to these woman who are living with him. he has enough money, more then he could ever spend so why dont share it with beautyful woman? you cant take your money with you when your dead so he and she should enjoy it and share

  29. wonderwoman21 says:

    All I had to do was read the article’s title and I puked in my mouth x(

  30. MediaMaven says:

    She always looks like he just farted……

  31. spiffypaws says:

    WHAT kind of model was she-a hand model????????

  32. Scarlet Pimpernel says:

    SORT OUT THE COMB OVER – that’ll show who’s in control!

  33. Jana says:

    He is a complete fool and she has one of the dumbest looks on her face in every single one of those pictures…like he just passed gas!

  34. Lucy2 says:

    Her face is just…odd. But he’s hideous. Best thing I read all day was about him tweeting a compliment to Deadline about that football player story, and Deadline responding for him to go f— himself. It was great.

  35. Caroline says:

    He’s paying for her lifestyle. Obviously she is happy with their arrangement. NO judgement from me whatsoever.

  36. gestie says:

    If only The Donald had as much swag as Hugh Hefner….
