Melania’s Former Confidant Brought The Receipts After First Lady Claimed “She Hardly Knew Me”

People keep their receipts, sweetie.

The rift between First Lady Melania Trump and her former (allegedly) close friend Stephanie Winston Wolkoff has certainly grown over the course of the past few weeks — and it’s gotten far more public, as well.

As I’m sure you know, Winston Wolkoff is the former pal of Melania Trump who ended up penning a tell-all story about the First Family, with a specific focus on her experiences with the First Lady, after she discovered the Trump family’s true colors, titled, Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady. 

Wolkoff’s book is chock full of numerous bombshell revelations about everyone from Melania to Donald to Ivanka. However, it seems that Stephanie’s book was merely the tip of the iceberg.


Recently, in addition to her writer tell-all, Wolkoff released secretly recorded tapes of conversations between herself and Melania Trump, and they were a doozy, to say the very least. Thanks to the tapes, we got a glimpse at the First Lady’s true feelings regarding children in cages at the southern border, the Christmas holiday, and her husband’s former mistress, Stormy Daniels (who recently let Melania know that she wasn’t here for her sanctimony.)

I suppose this First Lady just couldn’t take all this lying down. So, last week, we were “blessed” with an official White House letter, supposedly penned by Mel herself, in which she essentially trashed Wolkoff as a leech that tried to ride her coattails to fame, and blasted the media for covering Stephanie’s story instead of her “Be Best” campaign and all the “good work” she’s been doing.

Ultimately, the First Lady claimed that Wolkoff barely knew her.

It seems that Wolkoff won’t be taking Melania’s response lying down either. This is what she had to say about the First Lady’s letter:

I find it puzzling that the First Lady of theUnited States asked someone she ‘hardly knew’ to attend her nuptials, join her for countless lunches, help plan the presidential inauguration, stay over at the White House and Mar-a-Lago, and act as her senior advisor. I wrote this book to share with the public my experience of working with Melania, our fifteen-year friendship, and her ultimate betrayal. This portrait is not all flattering but it’s the truth and Americans deserve the truth about the occupants of the White House.”

There’s no doubt in my mind that Wolkoff knew her former friend would try to pull her husband’s favorite tactic of “we barely knew each other” and she came prepared with proof in the form of all the monumental life moments the two shared together as friends.

My question is this, Mel: Why on earth would you run your mouth about “fucking Christmas” to someone you hardly know?
