Melania & Ivanka Trump completely hate each other, for what it’s worth

So at the Nazi rally at the White House last night, Donald Trump’s favorite child got to introduce her father. Ivanka baby-whispered lies and then Donald and Melania Trump came strutting out together on the fascism catwalk (well, she strutted, he waddled). As they were making their way to the podium, this happened between Melania and Ivanka:

While the face Melania makes is super-bitchy, I also think that perhaps she was expecting Ivanka to acknowledge her in some way and Ivanka just walked right on by? In which case, Mel’s face makes more sense? When you read her look as “I can’t believe that blonde a–hole blanked me,” I kind of get that. Speaking of Ivanka and Melania’s soap opera melodrama, there’s a book out called Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady by Stephanie Wolkoff. Wolkoff worked briefly for Melania and now Wolkoff is trying to spill some tea about how much Mel hates The ‘Vanka.

Melania Trump’s former confidant Stephanie Winston Wolkoff is dishing out a behind-the-scenes look at the allegedly contentious relationship between the first lady and first daughter Ivanka Trump. In her forthcoming book, “Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady,” Wolkoff details the painstaking efforts she and, allegedly, Melania took to block Ivanka from appearing in photos of President Donald Trump’s swearing in at the inauguration, according to an excerpt published Wednesday in New York Magazine.

Wolkoff wrote, “We were all exhausted and stressed out. Yes, Operation Block Ivanka was petty. Melania was in on this mission. But in our minds, Ivanka shouldn’t have made herself the center of attention in her father’s inauguration.”

The excerpt from Wolkoff’s new book details the bad blood between Melania and Ivanka — whom Melania, according to Wolkoff, has referred to as “Princess.”

An administration official took aim at Wolkoff’s character, saying her behavior was “the complete opposite of Mrs. Trump’s style.”

“She inflated her relationship with the first lady,” along with other behaviors that irked the East Wing, the official said. The official added, “it had to be brought to Mrs. Trump’s attention — who does not tolerate that kind of behavior.”

Wolkoff claimed that Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, both White House staffers, were always on the lookout for opportunities to diminish and “control” Melania, even trying to snap up office space in the East Wing during the presidential transition. “Ivanka was relentless and was determined to be the First Daughter Lady and to usurp office space out from under Melania; she wanted to be the only visible female Trump on the premises,” Wolkoff wrote.

Mostly I don’t care about the Trump family soap opera, but I think Ivanka and Melania legitimately despise each other and that Melania, while extremely lazy, is very focused on what is and is not “her turf.” But ultimately, Melania isn’t around enough to really claim much in the way of “turf.” Which is why Ivanka fills in so much. I don’t even want to make a joke here, I just think this whole family is disgusting.

    I can stand any of them, but that face was fantastic! I can’t wait until they’re forced to do some joint interview or photo op to dispel the stories in this book.

  2. Darla says:

    Melania’s got them crazy eyes tho, did you notice? There’s something wildly murderous in her eyes, like she’s thinking about her butcher’s knife from back in the old village. I’m telling ya, Ivanka probably finds dead, skinned squirrels in her desk.

    • Alexandria says:

      There’s a meme out there that Melania pics always looks like she’s trying to recall where she met you lol

    • betsyh says:

      Her butcher’s knife from the old village! Hahahaha!!!

    • Bibi says:

      Melania has crazy serial killer eyes, freak cemetery tastes for xmas deco and garden planting, but I love that she can’t fake a smile directed at a trump for more than 2 secs. lol
      This woman will never get an oscar.

    • Miranda says:

      And the corners of her crazy eyes meet at the back of her head. Could her face be pulled back any tighter? Jesus, she’s advancing into Jocelyn Wildenstein territory.

  3. tempest prognosticator says:

    What a disgusting family.

    • SpankFD says:

      Gross. And I’d bet Princess blanked Mel because Mel’s RNC speech was well received. Such a low bar.

      Could their punishment be lifetime imprisonment together? All the familiarity of family and none of the trappings of wealth?

  4. Digital Unicorn says:

    Given that the first 3 Trump crotch goblins tried to get Tiffany cut off of Daddy’s will (learned that trick from Daddy) am sure they will try and cut both her and Barron out, esp daughter wife.

    However I was entertained by Melania cockblocking Princess Complicit, denying her the chance to mug for all she was worth a try the inauguration. She isn’t determined to front that she’s the power behind daddy when the reality is she likely isn’t no matter how much she lets him paw at her.

    • Eleonor says:

      Melania had her prenup renogotiated, I am sure she and Barron wil be fine.

    • Marjorie says:

      Remember Melania stayed in NYC for six months in 2017, refusing to come to DC. Her original contract did not include First-Ladying; she stayed in New York working with lawyers to get a new deal. She knows all, and there’s no way she’s doing all this without an excellent compensation plan and residuals.

    • Lizzie Bathory says:

      I agree that they’re all absolutely awful, including Mel. But I find it hilarious that she blocked “princess” from styling the First Lady’s office as a “First Family” office. Ivanka is very much the power behind daddy in a lot of ways, though. I think that’s what she & Melania fight about a lot (because Melania has her own motives). But from a day-to-day standpoint, Ivanka is there. Mel lives in Maryland & is often indisposed due to her pill habit. So Ivanka has daddy at her disposal.

    • superashes says:

      My petty-ass inner child loved the excerpt on all the effort to block her at the inauguration. I was almost ashamed at my delight at reading the story. I have reached a point where I just absolutely cannot stand Nagini. I read somewhere that she has had so much plastic surgery that she cannot even breathe out of her nose now, and I spent most of the time I was willing to devote to watching her speech staring at her nostrils wondering if it were true.

      • Lizzie Bathory says:

        Hard agree on Nagini. Per Noel Casler, even back in the Celebrity Apprentice days, Ivanka had to have straws put in her nostrils during hair & makeup so she could breathe because her nose was so destroyed.

      • SKF says:

        Yes!! That is from Noel Casler.

        Look at her face in that top photo… it is a mess!! Way too much plastic surgery. When she grins everything looks wrong because the implants and fillers move into weird positions. Hideous.

        Also… Fluro green dress with a red belt. Interesting choice Melania.

  5. Mtec says:

    W.e. They should all be in prison anyways.

    • Mac says:

      SDNY and the DC AG are investigating Ivanka for stealing millions from the inaugural committee. I see prison in her future.

    • bettyrose says:

      In the same cell in prison.

    • lucy2 says:

      If they hate each other and are miserable in the meantime, great, but that’s low on my list of stuff I need to see. High on the list? Jail for the lot of them.

  6. Léna says:

    She is really good at being fake

  7. Sofia says:

    She apparently only came to the WH after her pre-nup was negotiated so I’m not surprised if Ivanka hates Melania because she sees Melania (and Barron) taking inheritance money that she would have gotten

  8. EveV says:

    Icanka walked so close to Melania that it rustles Melania’s hair, yet didn’t acknowledge her in the least, so yeah, obviously some bad blood.
    I hope they completely rat on each other and make each other’s life miserable.

    • Darla says:

      Oh yeah. Team no one. I hope they spend years trying to ruin each other.

    • Lightpurple says:

      And she should have stepped behind them, not walked in front of them when she knew the cameras were on them, that’s just basic manners and stage direction. Nagini wanted to upstage Melania AND show the world her ass.

    • Lady D says:

      Melania should have reached out a toe and tripped her. It would’ve wiped that smug look right off Ivanka’s face.

  9. EnnuiAreTheChampions says:

    Good. They are both loathsome people, so I’m glad they find no comfort in each other.

  10. Sarah says:

    Anything that gives any of these people even a moment of discomfort is welcome in my book. They deserve it all.

    • MaryContrary says:

      That’s what I think too. Every moment they’re jealous/bitter/petty/undercutting each other/insecure-good. They deserve every bit of misery.

  11. Melissa says:

    She knows he’s going to die soon and she wants to make sure she gets more money than Ivanka.

    • holly hobby says:

      The whole lot of them would be wrestling for the sloppy crumbs once that turd dies (and it can’t come soon enough for me). There won’t be much money left. I hope they all end up destitute and/or in jail.

    • HaylesB says:

      “She know he’s going to die soon…”
      what a disgusting thing to say, regardless of how you feel about this President. Honestly is hatred like this that keeps turning Independents towards Baby Fists, you’re not helping.

      • Cheyanne says:

        Really? Independents are going to vote baby fists because she said “She knows hes going to die soon?” THATS what’s going to turn Independent voters towards Trump? Hmm….interesting.

      • Nic919 says:

        Anyone who votes for dump is voting for a fascist monster who has killed hundreds of thousands of people. Clearly they are awful people and they aren’t voting based on logic but being white people who enjoy having their racism reinforced by a traitor. So who the fuck cares trying to placate their hurt feelings. They are as bad as him.

  12. Insomniac says:

    When will public officials learn not to wear green? The green-screen memes people are making with Melania’s dress and sharing on Twitter are killing me.

  13. Sandra says:

    I’m team Melania on this LOL

    • Lightpurple says:

      Right? Basic manners and stage direction would tell Nagini to step behind them, not walk in front of them when they were being presented on camera.

    • Lizzie says:

      I am with you. Also Jared and Ivanka tried to take over offices in the East Wing and the lady who wrote this book shut that down. Melanie was still in NY renegotiating at the time.

  14. bluebell_ says:

    Both vile and awful people but Ivanka is worse. She and her evil husband deserve to rot in hell

  15. robin says:

    Love the dress, Melania is a b### but she wears some really nice gowns

    • Lizzie Bathory says:

      I kind of liked the dress, too, but the belt seemed weird to me. Maybe a thicker belt, or something softer? Skinny leather just didn’t quite make sense. Ivanka’s whole look was super odd for the event, in my opinion.

    • Meghan says:

      I like her dress too and kind of love this 3 second moment (and then I’m over it). I wear a skinny black belt with a lot of dresses that would work with this one, or maybe a fun pop of color? Yellow? A royal blue? Idk I am not super Miss Fashion.

      I think she should have worn this dress for her speech the other night and her military-esque get up (which I thought was ugly) last night. But no one asked me!!

    • superashes says:

      Me too. Melania definitely looked better. Ivanka reminded me of my 90′s high school formal yearbook photo. Also agree on the belt, the red provided a nice contrast but the cut of the waist seemed like a bigger belt was called for.

    • Green Eyes says:

      The green I think was a wink wink to QAnon. They post a lot of meme’s of frogs that same shade of green (supposed to stand for Full Reliance On God). Remember they see Trump as God’s chosen one to clean out the US (law and order). She picks all her clothes meticulously. Don’t let her fool you.

      • Darla says:

        Oh is that right? I didn’t know that, how interesting. And yes she definitely does! Remember her infamous pussy-bow blouse at the debate right after the access hollywood tape came out? She is an awful, awful, no good, low down person.

      • Meghan says:

        @greeneyes- well dang I try to be nice about an outfit of hers and it fires back at me! Now, could sane, non-QAnon supporters/winkers wear something like that? I couldn’t pull off a green quite so vibrant but I do think I have some pretty bright green dresses in the closet. For, you know, if I ever get to go back to my regular job.

    • JanetDR says:

      I kind of hate it – it’s not at all flattering. In fact that cape bit + the pleats makes her look thicker and not in a good way. I like to see color, but it’s an odd choice.

  16. Green Eyes says:

    They look like real live monsters.. Melania in that viral meme looks like The Vampire Queen filled with hate and lusting for Ivanka’s blood .. Ivanka looks like an evil witch (pointy chin and all).

  17. vegasschmegas says:

    MelBot needs a reboot…..

  18. Lightpurple says:

    It has been pretty well documented that Nagini tried to take over the East Wing First Lady office because it is bigger than what was available to her in the West Wing. She isn’t filling for First Lady stuff, you don’t see her visiting schools and hospitals and hosting luncheons. She’s trying to run the country and take credit for policies that were established by Franklin Roosevelt, while spending millions of our tax dollars on overhead to do it. She also has a larger staff than any First Lady ever.

    • Eve V says:

      I remember reading the story in real time about when she tried to take over offices in the East Wing.
      I absolutely cannot stand this woman and appreciate your daily updates on her wrong doings, Lightpurple.

  19. Murphy says:

    Least problematic headline of the morning.

  20. Jenny says:

    In that top photo, if you switched out the blonde hair with dark hair, Ivanka looks like Kimberly Guilfoyle / Trumpy Jr.’s girlfriend.

    • Alexandria says:

      Fun fact:, Jr’s girlfriend is older than Melania. Assuming both of them are not lying about their ages.

    • Miranda says:

      I’ve spent a fair amount of time this week explaining the Trump family to my stepmom (who is Dutch, and didn’t really know much about him before he became president). She’s always mixing up whether he’s married to Melania or Ivanka, but it seems like Trump himself is just as confused about that as she is.

      It really is creepy as hell that every woman in the family looks the same. It speaks volumes about how Trump thinks women have no real value beyond their physical appearance.

  21. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Look at Vaniqa in that first pic! She’s crazed. Like a squirrel at Starbucks.

  22. Ksweet says:

    Melania is Trump’s Russian handler.

  23. Lizzie says:

    How ironic, I hate them both. Although I think this is the usual relationship between daughter and third wife more often than not.

    • Bettyrose says:

      If and when my dad marries a third time, it will have minimal impact on my life and my non existent inheritance. I’d like to see my dad in a stable relationship, married or not. But here’s the thing, I’m also not interested in a being a power player in his life so no need to feel threatened. (And I cringe at even mentioning the other forms of validation Ivanka seeks from daddy

  24. Swack says:

    I don’t care, do you.

  25. Marigold says:

    Ivanka has mastered the plastered fake smile.

  26. L4frimaire says:

    At first I thought that clip of Melania was a manipulated image but the fact that it was real is absolutely hilarious. That woman has her mask slip every once in a while. It’s obvious she can’t stand Ivanka and that is the only thing I find remotely tolerable about her. They are all disgusting people who have used and further divided this country for their own self-aggrandizement. They’ll stomp on democracy, the constitution and human rights in their 5 inch Louboutins. The fact that we could very possibly get four more years of this causes me despair. They should all be in Leavenworth.

  27. Jerusha says:

    Looking forward to the catfight over the will, which will occur soon, I hope. Very, very soon.

  28. Rapunzel says:

    Wolkoff apparently has Melanoma on tape insulting Dotard and Nagini. Please oh please let those tapes be released.

  29. Rapunzel says:

    And why do they all look like they’re wearing blackface in that top picture?

  30. Jules says:

    The memes are glorious today!

  31. yinyang says:

    Melania remids me of Kate Middleton, both don’t want to be where they are and it shows, only act caring and helpful because it’s a part of their job descripition but truly are in it for the perks and fame and legacy. Atleast with Melania, she only has to “grudge” through it 4-8 years.

    • Emmitt says:

      I would disagree, in that Melania does not hide the fact she would rather not be doing the First Lady job and doesn’t do it unless absolutely necessary. Kate pretends to want to do the job by being keen, a top CEO, ready to step into her purpose etc. It’s the fakery that puts people off Kate, not just the laziness.

      And Kate lobbied for the job she doesn’t want to do. Melania never lobbied or wanted to be First Lady.

  32. Leah says:

    I’ve heard that they hated eachother before. I guess that Melania doesn’t like to be second fiddle to the daughter who he said he would have married if she hadn’t been his daughter (gross). There’s a rumor that Melania doesn’t even live in the WH.

  33. nicegirl says:


  34. ClaireB says:

    What on earth is going on with Ivanka’s face? Is the plastic surgery losing to her genetics? Did she get a new chin implant? Someone with better eyes for this kind of thing needs to tell me what happened!

  35. Jules says:

    Ivanka is looking more she more like her father…her hair is turning this ugly yellow and she looked like she had her own naked tan. Melanie sold herself when she married into this family but I do feel bad for her sometimes. Ivanka disrespects her so badly and that has to be annoying AF. For anyone. Then she try’s to be cordial and her “duty” as as a public wife and Ivanka doesn’t even try to pretend along.

    Ivanka must be really entitled beyond belief and think herself superior. But Melania should realize that Ivanka learned that from her parents, and more specifically Donald himself. She has to make the connection? Hate one, hate the other. She embodies her father’s behavior, ideals and attitude to a T.

    Melania should be just as upset at herself. Also, I agree she is SEETHING! I hope Ivanka is exposed for her racism and phony newer. I remember when she bad-mouthed President Obama. Ivanka is the worst and if Melania annoys her, or puts her so out of sorts, I hope she lets loose and starts to give Ivanka real hell! Im sure there are a lot of great memes about this out there too!

    • Guest with Cat says:

      Because I don’t really pay attention to anything other than these huge public appearances where Melania is always smacking Donald’s hand or finding some other way to show her disdain, I was sort of feeling sorry for Melania myself and enjoying the public shade she throws at the Trumps.

      But another Celebitchy who read a book about Melania and who paid more attention explained to me Melania is as vile as the rest of them and doesn’t need any pity.

      I was dealing with a cancer scare in the family so apparently I missed something about a nasty slogan Melania wore on a jacket when she went to visit the border to see if kids were actually kept in cages. I’d heard about the jacket but not the context of it. Damn! Woman has ice water in her veins. I was never sure what to make of her, because I do know Ivana once related, but took back a story of Donald physically attacking her in a rage. I wasn’t ever sure if Melania was being abused or not. But from what I was told yesterday, she’s been able to set her own terms and is doing just fine.

      Whatever the case, none of these people care about any of us. Any appearance of such is just an illusion. We need to make that very clear to everyone who is on the fence about the upcoming election.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      Does Melania…”Tell” you things?

  36. Green Eyes says:

    @meghan I hate QAnon and wore the color long before them.. just knowing how Trump has embraced them lately, how it is an odd color choice for the occasion- unless making a statement and well not the first time she would make a statement w/ her clothes. I believe she was definitely giving them a nibble on his behalf to keep their votes. They are crazy (trumps and QAnon). It’s like a neon lime.. I don’t wear it as often as I used to because I can no longer go in the sun.. but blonde hair and a nice tan.. that color really is flattering. (The magenta belt and shoes hmmm not so much either). Maybe you could wear a toned down version of the color. It is a great summer color.. I refuse to let some crazy cult keep me from doing or using things I like. Rock whatever colors work for you. ❤️

  37. april says:

    Ivanka is just as narcissistic as her father. She seems very fake.

  38. Emmitt says:

    Melania is a piece of trash just like Ivanka, but I’m on her side with this. Melania, even though she does very little, is the First Lady. The East Wing is HER space, not Ivanka’s space. The Inauguration was HER time, not Ivanka’s time. Princess Ivanka needs to fall all the way back. If she wants to be First Lady, get Jared to run for President.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      They will never run – they are planning on stealing the election and then turning the US into an autocracy so Daddy’s Little Princess can take over as Dear Leader once he’s done the job or destroying democracy and the constitution in the US. Ivanka is worse than Daddy is.

  39. beacker says:

    I’ll give her this: she’s part of the .01% of the population who could wear that color well.

    I’m sure they’re both monsters, but only one of them became a Trump by choice.

  40. Cee says:

    OMFG in the first photo it looks like he’s wearing black face

  41. shanaynay says:

    I’d hate Ivanka too if I were her. Especially since her husband disgustingly and creepily lusts after his own daughter. Hate to go there, but honestly, in my opinion, all I’m saying is something isn’t right there!

  42. L says:

    The look in M’s eyes reads to me as pure anxiety and fear, not aggression. I think Melania is being heavily manipulated by this entire family of malignant narcissists.

    And before you go in on me for “defending” her, i’m just calling it how I see it.

  43. Bean says:

    Stephanie Wolkoff is also that friend who was able to make a bunch of money off the inauguration and has been involved in the investigation related to the exorbitant amt of money he collected but didn’t spend.
