As the primary race intensifies with every passing week, curious Americans anticipate the candidates’ unveiling of their ladies in waiting. While Bill Clinton has always remained in the spotlight, we’re finally getting some dirt on another possible FLOTUS, one who is more than a mere first “lady.” That person is Melania Trump, foreign-born beauty and third wife to the GOP’s current delegate front runner.
Melania Knauss was born in Slovenia, traveled the world as a supermodel throughout the late eighties and early nineties, and eventually moved to New York City. The stars aligned, and the Sports Illustrated and Vogue cover girl met Trump at a party in 1998. The two married in 2005, had a son named Barron, and the rest is history.
Paparazzi have always loved snapping photos of the glamorous couple as they socialize around New York City, and Melania received considerable attention following Donald’s venture into reality television with The Apprentice. Still, nothing has remotely compared to the exposure and scrutiny she’s been subject to in wake of the election. With Donald Trump’s weak showing following the Wisconsin primary, his handlers decided to finally reveal their secret weapon. The timing couldn’t be better.
