However, It's been Ivana who has been the most vocal, which has only increased since the promotion of her new book, which is set to be released this week. The book takes the reader on a journey of her life starting with living under Communism in what was then known as Czechoslovakia, all the way through her time being married to Trump. Ivana is the mother of three of the president's children, Ivanka, Eric, and Donald Jr. As reported by NBC News on October 9, Melania wasn't pleased [VIDEO]with the recent criticism from her husband's ex-wife.

Ivana noted that she speaks to the president every other week, but explained that she doesn't like to call the White House and risk creating drama with Melania. "I don't want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like that, because I'm basically first Trump wife," Ivana said before adding, "OK? I'm first lady."

Melania responds

In responds to the remarks made by Ivana, Melania Trump released a scathing statement that was sent by office of the first lady. "(Melania) plans to use her title and role to help children, not sell books," the statement read. "There is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex," the statement continued, before adding, "Unfortunately only attention-seeking and self-serving noise." While usually one to keep quiet on personal issues, it appears the recent comments from Ivana pushed Melania to make a public rebuttal.
