Ivana Trump on her 'insane' divorce from Donald Trump

- That's how Ivana Trump, the first wife of President Donald Trump, sums up her current situation, 25 years after their messy, highly publicized divorce.

In a CBS News interview this week, Ivana said she was offered the post of ambassador to the Czech Republic but turned it down because she already had "a flawless life".

When it came to their three children, Ivana was in charge while Trump was like an absentee dad making deals, but making no time for the kids. So I'm not sure if she was. When asked how she finds a way to get along with Donald Trump's third wife Melania, whom he married in 2005 after divorcing Maples in 1999, the president's first wife responded, "One is nobody".

'I don't talk about her.

"Well, she was flirting. and I think she was flirting and and she got away with it", she said. Ivana even referred to herself as the real "first lady".

The White House has not commented about Mr Trump offering Ivana an ambassadorship. The mother of three said she praise for their children. I don't disagree with him because he has so much press against him, so if he says something his words are going to be twisted immediately. Trump's marriage to Maples lasted from 1993 to 1999. "But I like my freedom. I couldn't turn on the television without hearing my name", Trump adds. "He asks me about, 'Should I tweet?" Okay, why would I go and say bye-bye to Miami in the winter, bye-bye to Saint-Tropez in the summer, and bye-bye to spring and fall in NY?

She knew her marriage was over, she writes, soon after a day in December 1989 when a "young blonde woman approached me out of the blue and said 'I'm Marla and I love your husband".

'It's a new way, a new technology. While doing so, Trump refers to Maples almost exclusively as "the showgirl", blasting her for "knowingly entering into a relationship with my husband, the father of three small children".

Back in March 2017, she took on an official but unpaid role in the White House, and has since pushed for improved family leave plans that she has worked with the president on, and has also spoken out in support of women in business.

However, she also chronicles the pain she felt during the divorce and also reveals how her children Donald Jr, Ivanka and Eric didn't speak to their father for a year after the split.
