Melania Trump denies having an early boob job, Botox: ‘I didn’t do anything’


If you have the time today, I would suggest reading GQ’s article about Melania Trump – go here for the full piece. It’s not a traditional hit piece, nor is it a glowing puff-piece. I actually came away from it with some begrudging respect for Melania! Weird, right? GQ sent a reporter to do a true-blue investigative piece on who Melania really is, her childhood in Slovenia, her early days as a model, and her life now. Melania spoke to GQ and her quotes are sprinkled throughout the piece, although as GQ notes: “She’s alluringly opaque. She makes meaningful eye contact and emphatically repeats affirmative, folksy banalities.” Still, I ended up sort of liking her – she’s not crazy, she’s not dumb, and she’s not dying of thirst. Some highlights from the piece:

She appears infrequently on the campaign trail & only when she deigns to. “Nobody controls me. I travel with my husband when I can, when I know that I can go, and I know that my son is okay alone for a few days with the help.”

As First Lady, she would be involved with “many, many charities”: “Many different charities involving children, involving many different diseases.”

An old friend says about Melania: “People say she’s smart, she’s well-educated like Jackie Kennedy, but… She’s smart for the things she’s interested in, like jewelry. She’s not stupid, she’s not a bimbo, but she’s not especially clever.”

Her political views: “I chose not to go into politics and policy. Those policies are my husband’s job.” She has opinions, she assures me, and shares them with Trump. “Nobody knows and nobody will ever know,” she says of the advice she provides him. “Because that’s between me and my husband.”

How she refused to give Trump her number when they first met: “If I give him my number, I’m just one of the women he calls… I wanted to see what his intention is. It tells you a lot from the man what kind of number he gives you. He gave me all of his numbers….I’m not starstruck. We had a great connection, we had great chemistry, but I was not starstruck. And maybe he noticed that.”

Her husband reminds her of her father: “They’re both hardworking. They’re both very smart and very capable. They grew up in totally different environments, but they have the same values, they have the same tradition. I myself am similar to my husband. Do you understand what I mean? So is my dad; he is a family man, he has tradition, he was hardworking. So is my husband.”

A friend claims she had a boob job in her early days: “She went away for a two-week vacation, then came back, and was more…buxom. She admitted it to me. She just said it needed to be done to get more lingerie jobs.”

Melania denies any augmentations: “I didn’t make any changes. A lot of people say I am using all the procedures for my face. I didn’t do anything. I live a healthy life, I take care of my skin and my body. I’m against Botox, I’m against injections; I think it’s damaging your face, damaging your nerves. It’s all me. I will age gracefully, as my mom does.”

[From GQ]

Re: Botox and boob job… I’m on the fence about whether she had a boob job. If she did, I like that she went for the right size for her frame. As for the Botox… girl, I see your face. LIES!

As I said, the whole GQ piece is fascinating. The reporter goes back to previous interviews from both Melania and Donald and the portrait of their marriage is sort of sad. Basically, Melania knows her “job” is to look after her son, and she thinks her job as Donald’s wife is to not nag him, spend too much of his money or ever wear sweatpants, I guess. Trump hasn’t even heard his wife FART. Think about that.

    If she hasn’t farted in front of her husband of many years, maybe that’s why her face is so squinty. It’s gotta be painful holding that much gas in.

    • IE says:

      Do you think he has farted in front of her?

    • Porsha says:

      I fart in my home it is the only place to be yourself if my husband is around oh well farts are hilourous I also pick my nose at home I don’t let him see that oh and sometimes you just have to scratch your butt

    • TheSage says:

      My EX used to push out farts all the time….and every time he followed it with the same “joke”: “More tea, vicar?”. In bed, at the table, anywhere, ALL the time. Some people will argue that is is a sign of a couple being comfortable together. In my opinion it is a sign of taking the other person for granted. Do me a favour and walk to the other room, please.

    • Lama Bean says:

      Well their house is 7 million square feet, so she only needs to walk into the next room to get away from him. Try living in a 1 bedroom apartment and claiming you haven’t farted in front of your partner.

      • Janis says:

        Don’t take this the wrong way, Lama Bean but the mention of farting and your name just made me LOL at the office. I think I startled my co-workers out of their midday trances.

      • Kynesgrove says:

        I just blame my cats on farts. Lol

    • LeAnn Stinks says:


      LOL!!!!! Thank you, for the laugh!

    • Crocuta says:

      I haven’t farted in front of my husband either and he doesn’t do it in front of me because he knows I am disgusted by it. 10 years and no problems with this arrangement.

  2. IE says:

    Weird, but she looks like Steven Tyler in the last photos

    • Esmom says:

      I can see that, lol. She seems much harsher looking to me than she used to look. And I cannot for the life of me imagine what living with Trump would be like. She sounds like she keeps a certain detachment from the marriage, maybe as a way to cope?

      What a contrast to the Obamas’ marriage, which has always struck me as so genuinely loving, playful and mutually respectful.

    • artpunk44 says:


    • Mia V. says:

      She also looks a little like him in the last pic.

      • Tessy says:

        More than a little bit. She’s starting to hold her mouth the same way. I noticed it even in the first pic.

    • V4Real says:

      Lol. First Carol from the Real Housewives of NY looked like Steven Tyler on this site, now Melania. Steven Tyler is having a good month.

      She does have a hard look to her.

      • Alix says:

        Her English is a little broken. What she meant to say about her face was, “There’s nothing I haven’t done.”

    • mandy says:

      YES she does- and Steven Tyler is 70 something years old- whatever gave her that face it’s definitely not healthy living – hahahahaha no botox and no boob jobs- hahahahahahahahaha
      OMG – I just can’t with these two- even worse than the prospect of drumpf is the idea of this euro trash woman as the first Lady – it makes me physically ill!- I cannot believe someone had the gall to mention her and Jackie Kennedy in the same sentence let alone compare them!!!!!!

      • Teri says:

        Well, both she and Jackie married arrogant, ugly misogynists for their money so they’re not that different after all

      • mandy says:

        Whatever else he may be Jack Kennedy was not ugly- he is often considered one of the handsomest men of his time. And Jackie did not marry him for his money- She loved him – he was the love of her life.

      • Teri says:

        @mandy. I was referring to Aristotle Onassis

      • Amelie says:

        What I heard about Onassis was that he was great in bed and that it was with him-for the first time-that Jackie experienced sexual fulfillment. I also think she wanted protection after both her husband and her brother-in-law were assassinated.

  3. Ninaj says:

    Those are implants, and not subtle ones at that. They have a business arrangement, not a marriage.

  4. Antonym says:

    She knows we can see her, right?

    Obvious lies are obvious

    • noway says:

      My question is why do they lie, because we do have eyes. The boobs are painfully obvious. In order to get boobs that size from her smaller younger size she would have to gain tons of weight, which she didn’t and even then she is not guaranteed it would go to her boobs. Implants just look so different too. Her face is so pulled back it isn’t even funny.

    • LeAnn Stinks says:

      Amen. She looks like if she stood close enough to a source of heat,, she would melt.

  5. UCatwoman says:

    I thought she was Caitlyn Jenner in that header pic.

  6. OSTONE says:

    Suuuure Melania, you’ve never had Botox. Sad the state of our country and society when these two Oompa Loompas have a big chance at being the leaders of the free world. I remember assuring my Europeans and Latin American friends who live overseas that this was going to be the “goofy” part of the election, “of course he won’t get the nomination!” And like Anne, it came true.

  7. Nameless says:

    I thought she had a jocelyn wilderstein facelift thing going on. Last night my husband was baffled about how she could possibly f@$# Trump and I agreed she should be in the gold digging hall of fame.

  8. doofus says:

    UGH, so much SQUINT in that pic.

    oh, and “the help”?! ugh. she probably doesn’t even know the names of any of her servants.

    • SJO says:

      Thank you! Was just going for that. I hope she gets some serious shade for that somewhere besides just the comments in a blog. I am a waitress and I absolutely despise that term.

  9. Erinn says:

    Yeah, she referred to their staff as “the help”, and lies about the work on her face.

    And she married Trump. And got his numbers while he was on a date with another woman. I think she’s just a slightly more savvy bimbo, to be honest.

    She knew what kind of connections marrying Trump would get her, and what kind of lifestyle she’d be living. She’s just less obvious about how thirsty she is.

    • lizabeth says:

      Glad I’m not the only one who noticed that casual reference.

      She has no class at all. They are both completely revolting and represent tackiness and greed as almost caricatures.

      • Ravensdaughter says:

        Well said. And “the help”? Disgusting…

      • Janis says:

        Have you seen the interior of their home? Talk about tacky…there is a giant statue of some large animal in their foyer and the wall and furniture etc. are all painted gold. Ugh.

      • susanne says:

        She calls them the help because her son calls them ‘Mommy.”

    • Hellohello says:

      Definitely just a savvy bimbo. I know someone who works at his NY apartment and apparently she just sleeps half the day away.

      She also appears to try to mimic Ivana, his only wife with any sense, at any possible opportunity.

    • Rachel says:

      Word. “The help.”

    • Locke Lamora says:

      To be fair, if I’m not mistaken, staff and “the help” are the same word in Slovenian.

  10. Kitten says:

    “She’s smart for the things she’s interested in, like jewelry. She’s not stupid, she’s not a bimbo, but she’s not especially clever.”

    Nice friend she’s got there lol.

    But I completely believe this description because this is exactly the impression she puts forth. She comes across as well-educated but calculating, submissive but manipulative as well, and of average intelligence. For some reason, I don’t mind her that much. I don’t find anything particularly interesting about her, but she doesn’t seem like an awful person either.

    • BearcatLawyer says:

      I generally agree with your assessment, but I do find her awful for one big reason: her husband has stated publicly he intends to deport all undocumented immigrants and build a huge wall across our southern border to be paid for (ha, ha) by Mexico. Yet there are several interviews in which Melania unwittingly admits that she worked illegally in the U.S. as a young model while claiming that she was actually obeying the law. But apparently since she later was able to “go straight” and secure a work visa and later a green card and U.S. citizenship, her offenses should be swept under the rug and forgiven. They are both hypocrites of the highest order.

      • Kitten says:

        You’re absolutely right and I had forgotten about that.
        Basically, she’s ok with illegal immigrants if it’s her that we’re talking about.

        ..and now I’m mad that I gave her any credit.

      • Nimbolicious says:

        Well, I guess the truth is that both Ivana and Melania are classic examples of immigrants coming here to take the jobs no one else wants 😉

      • The Original G says:

        Golden…….so funny.

    • Amelie says:

      Re: Intelligence, if she passed a rigorous entrance exam to university as stated, she has to be given credit for this. I would question the motives of her ‘friend’ in stating that she’s not especially clever.

    • EM says:

      She comes off a bit harmless primarily because we hardly hear from her. Clearly she is very hypocritical and/or delusional.

      • Amelie says:

        She’s not running for office…I frankly am tired of marketing POTUS candidates and their wives “as a team.” This was taken to an extreme with Bill & Hillary and her appointment as a kind of healthcare czar (Hillarycare) for healthcare reform during I think his first term. The public did not like a First Lady’s role morphing into that of someone developing government policy. In fact, The First Lady’s role “sparked litigation in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.” This reminds me of how much controversy there was during both of Bill Clinton’s terms.

  11. Sally J. Freedman says:

    I just now realized that they totally look alike……scary.

  12. Boston Green Eyes says:

    She reminds me of one of those Russian mail order brides – it’s all about the money and the lifestyle.

  13. Talie says:

    The stuff about her family finding a way to thrive during communism is the most fascinating.

  14. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    She married Donald Trump. That’s all I need to know.

  15. Barrett says:

    I have always found her look unusual. Even young she has a weird cat face frozen look. The distinct shape eyes excentuate it.

  16. crtb says:

    As First Lady, she would be involved with “many, many charities”: “Many different charities involving children, involving many different diseases.”
    Anyone else notice that she couldn’t name one? Reminds of Sara Palin saying she read newspapers but couldn’t name one.

    I am calling total BS on not having work done. She is the total opposite of Michelle: Plastic, fake superficial, entitled, privileged, goal digger, submissive, enabling.

    I am embarrassed that she could be our first lady. She doesn’t represent the women of America. She can’t speak for us. She can’t related to us. She had no idea what our concerns or problems are. She will do nothing to make things better for American women.

    All she can help us with is how to do our make-up, how to spend money, how to be subservient to our husbands, how to manage the “help”.

    • KiddVicious says:

      I thought she sounded like Trump. “many, many charities”: “Many different charities involving children, involving many different diseases.” Many, many, charities, it’s gonna be huuuge!

      I wonder if she has a side-piece. Maybe the pool-boy?

    • The Original G says:

      I am aware that she’s done charity work for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Martha Graham Dance Company, the Police Athletic League and the Boy’s Club of New York. The American Red Cross awarded her with the title of Goodwill Ambassador. She speaks three languages and so does Barron.

      You don’t have to like her, but the idea that she’s not been charitable is untrue.

      • NeNe says:

        I can bet money she didn’t do it on her own accord!

      • lunchcoma says:

        If she has, then I’m not very impressed with her ability to be a spokesperson for those charities. I personally don’t think a president’s spouse should be responsible for anything that any other married person wouldn’t be, but if she’s going to promote herself as being an advocate for charity, she should be able to talk up the specific organizations she’s been involved with.

  17. AlmondJoy says:

    I’m very disturbed but the fact that she’s even oranger (is that a word??) than her husband in those last two pics.

  18. HollyG says:

    [raises hand] I read the GQ piece and I like her better for it. Whatever she’s decided is important, she takes seriously. I doubt she has any interest or opinion on things beyond a very limited scope, but that’s ok. She isn’t actually going to be the First Lady.

    Re calling her staff “the help”…if you read her quotes carefully, her English isn’t flawless. I think she went with an easy word here. Also, irrespective of how she refers to them, she doesn’t seem the type to abuse the people who work for her family.

    What I really want to know is what plastic surgery produced that perma-squint. It isn’t Botox, it’s like some kind of blepharoplasty? Or a facelift?

    • noway says:

      I also was going to let her go about the help part, because her English isn’t very good. Does anyone find it funny that Donald is pretty anti immigration, and he is married to a first generation immigrant, and so was his first wife. I get it if they are attractive we are just supposed to f*(&* them and marry them, but if they are unattractive we don’t let them in. Luckily for him he wasn’t an immigrant, because he would be toast. If I had his money, I think I could make myself look more attractive and less orange. Also, who is she kidding she is about as natural as plastic.

      • HollyG says:

        Trump has been all over the place with his various political and social leanings for the last 20+ years–to me, he sounds exactly like a moderate, fiscally conservative Manhattanite who is suddenly spouting various socially conservative views. He’s like a bot being programmed from somewhere deep in the heartland.

        The one exception is illegal immigration. I read somewhere that he’s always been rabidly against undocumented workers. It was, like, the one thing that he’d get going on and not stop. (And the GQ article makes a point of describing how Melania came here on a work visa.) Why? Nobody knows. But it turned out to be the thin edge of the wedge into some kind of repulsive collective xenophobia that has carried along this ridiculous campaign.

      • Melly says:

        Trump tower was built using illegal Polish immigrants, and Trump didn’t seem to have a problem with using their cheap labor. He also didn’t have a problem having his mob connections help him illegally get rid of asbestos in the building he tore down to build Trump tower.

      • BearcatLawyer says:

        @HollyG – Melania repeatedly entered the U.S. using the Visa Waiver Program to work as a model. That was illegal, no matter how she tries to spin it. She did not obtain a real work visa or her green card until much later.

    • MrsK says:

      “What I really want to know is what plastic surgery produced that perma-squint. It isn’t Botox, it’s like some kind of blepharoplasty? Or a facelift?”

      Chronic constipation?

      Or, maybe she has very poorly-fitting contact lenses and doesn’t even realize that can be corrected. My lenses can get intensely uncomfortable on bad allergy days and I know one thing I do is squint (also, rub my eyes, tear up some). I also know from experience that you can wear the wrongish lenses for a long time till you figure out maybe the prescription or lens type needs to be changed.

      Or, plastic surgery.

  19. Gg says:

    I bet he has been a faithful husband. I think he gets off on money and power and not ladies anymore. I think he learned after the Marla episode, affairs don’t have an ROI.
    I think she is a typical Rules wife.
    Only thing that stands out is their body language is never close. She is just there like a trophy, but they are not in touch.
    Michelle and Barack are always all over each other, it’s hit between them for sure. They will be a Presidential marriage for the history books.
    And want to see a true business arrangement “marriage”? Look no further than the Clintons. LOL I don’t even think they will do a First Dance at the inaugural ball, maybe a high five!

    • Melly says:

      “You know, it doesn’t really matter… as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.” -Donald J. Trump

    • Starkiller says:

      “And want to see a true business arrangement “marriage”? Look no further than the Clintons.”

      With all due respect, who cares? Woild that somehow hamper her ability to do the job?

      • Amelie says:

        “And want to see a true business arrangement “marriage”? Look no further than the Clintons.”
        With all due respect, who cares? Woild that somehow hamper her ability to do the job?”

        In follow-up to both comments: (1) I think after Bill’s last ‘une affaire assez délicate’ with Monica Lewinsky, that Hillary thought long & hard & pragmatically about continuing the marriage. IMO post Monica, their marriage became a contract marriage. (2)I am probably older than many posting here and lived thru the multiplicity of scandals that rocked the White House. Since politics for the Clintons is like a drug and although one may be in recovery, one is always an addict, I cannot imagine Bill not getting caught up in his old behaviors anymore. Why is this important? Well. lots of time was spent in damage control over their own many personal indiscretions that should have been spent (especially Bill) on governance. I can’t fathom why the (liberal) press hasn’t been more diligent in raising issues from the past. They are important as they speak to the credibility and suitability of Hillary for President. I could easily manage a vote for Bernie, based on his honesty alone, but cannot muster a vote for Hillary because I believe she is not an honest person.

  20. Lucy says:

    She’s not crazy? She married Trump, for God’s sake.

  21. kri says:

    Look-I have nothing against surgery if it’s done well. What;s the big deal? But in her case..come on. It is so, so obvious. He probably doesn’t allow her to admit to things like that, because she is supposed to be his perfect trophy. UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Amelie says:

    Well written, detailed GC piece.

    Re: Botox, I looked at the picture of her mother. Her mother must be in her 50′s and looks great. Great skin is usually linked with heredity. Also, it’s hard to believe that with her nutrition focus that she would put Botox, implants in her body.

    It would be pretty unusual having a First Lady who is an ‘immigrant’. I expect it is bound to happen sooner or later. I think she would need to tone down her fashion style a bit as First Lady as it is too flamboyant for the wife of a POTUS.

    • Amelie says:

      Just wanted to add something re: eye squinting & Melania. I have known multiple people who wear contacts who squint very noticeably. I don’t know if this is her issue, but if it is, dump the contacts. I did years ago.

    • EM says:

      “I think she would need to tone down her fashion style a bit as First Lady as it is too flamboyant for the wife of a POTUS. ” Trust me if her husband is POTUS the last thing we will be looking at is her fashion style – as a matter of fact I think most sane Americans will still be banging theirs heads against walls.

    • The Original G says:

      But Melania is 46, that would put her mother firmly in her 60s and she does look good.

  23. Magnoliarose says:

    I can’t even muster interest in her to be honest. She comes off like a 2 dimensional personality who has nothing of substance to offer.
    Orange Julius treated Marla like absolute dirt but I don’t feel sorry for her because she stalked him to get his attention and then outed them to break up his marriage. He isn’t generous with money with his wives and with her it was the worst. I’m not surprised Melania mentioned not spending much. Marla had so little money she had to borrow from staff sometimes to even pay for small items.
    He’s been cheating on Melania the whole time and doesn’t really care because he’s a selfish man who believes he should always have his way. Their marriage is an arrangement with no love lost on either side.

    As far as plastic surgery she needs to stop. She’s had everything done to her and her face can’t move. He is notorious about wanting perfection and if she ever let herself “go” she would be out.

  24. the_blonde_one says:

    so, is she just going to pretend her nudes aren’t out there? They’re implants and not very good ones.

  25. Bobo says:

    Why don’t people just admit to the plastic surgery?

  26. TessD says:

    Well, she didn’t deny she had a bob job – she’s referring to Botox and “procedures” but she never outright says “i haven’t had boob job.” It’s obvious that she did – anyone can see the difference in her early pictures. I think a woman should do whatever she wants with her body anyway.

    And I agree that she doesn’t come off as particularly clever. She obviously recognized the potential of being with Trump but wanted to play her cards right in that not appear to eager. She’s not stupid but neither is she bright. For someone who’s been in the country for over 20 years she has a very limited vocabulary.

    I get the impression that she simply tries to look good, speak little, praise her husband and appear to be a kind person. A pretty winning combination if you want to get along with most people especially if you are a public figure.

  27. Sarah01 says:

    Wow just wow, I’m actually just dumbfounded how the Trumps lie straight up. It’s like we are all like their / supporters intellectual level and are unable to see the obvious. She will age gracefully, for real?

  28. Joh says:

    I don’t think she aspired to anything higher then marrying a rich guy.
    She reminds me of something Talulah Bankhead once said, ” There’s less to this than meets the eye.”
    Not a simpleton, just not curious.

  29. aenflex says:

    Those quotes given here are nothing special. I agree with others that her grasp of North American English is paltry when compared to her time here. But whatever, English is a ridiculous language. She may not be thirsty for fame, but I also don’t believe she married for love. Heh, neither did he. She could be worse. I don’t see a Machiavellian agenda. Clearly she leaves that shite to her husband.

  30. Susie Shirley says:

    I think part of the problem with her eyes looking off, too, is the excessive use of eyeliner (or whatever it’s called nowadays). She’s got what used to be called racoon eyes. Not flattering on anyone.

  31. KiddVicious says:

    I hate to say this, but Donald seems more human when he’s around her. He makes normal faces, like laughing and smiling, instead of the exaggerated, fake faces he makes during debates or speeches.

  32. cerys says:

    Yuk, what a creepy looking couple. If she has not had plastic surgery i’d be amazed. In some of the photos posted she is starting to resemble her husband. Maybe the Donald is paying to create a clone of himself.

  33. Anonymous says:

    I don’t entirely agree that she’s had Botox (but then, I’m no expert). I think she has good genes, and with her money (and time), she probably gets an expensive facial at least once a month, and uses the best quality skin products in between. Plus, she’s learned how to pose: how to smile/hold her face in a way that minimizes wrinkles.

    And like her so-called “old friend” kind of said, there’s a difference between being smart, and being savvy. Melania knew that with her face and body, if she played her cards right, she could find a rich man and live an easy life, and she went for it. I don’t get the impression that she’s in love with her husband, but she seems pretty content.

  34. Rose says:

    Sorry but it’s hard to imagine her in the same ranks as Michelle Obama, Barbara Bush, and Jackie Kennedy…

    Oh and women like her are not dumb. I actually think she’s low key genius or just incredibly lucky. It takes a special kind of person to be married to someone like Donald Trump.
