9 Things You Never Knew About New U.S First Lady, Melania Trump

In spite of her significant other’s overwhelming persona, Melania Trump remains somewhat of a riddle. She initially ventured into the spotlight while making a battle discourse at the Republican National Convention back in July.

In any case, Melania and the Trump battle caused the fierceness of online networking after it was uncovered that a speech specialist professedly lifted part of the address from a discourse First Lady Michelle Obama gave in the interest of her better half at the Democratic National Convention in 2008.

Since then, Melania’s remained largely a silent figure in the campaign. Aside from the speech disaster, here are nine more insights about the future first lady.

1. She Invited Hillary Clinton to Her Wedding

Donald and Melania first met in 1998 and married in 2005. According to the The Hollywood Reporter (and photographic evidence), Bill and Hil were among the guests at their (predictably) over-the-top ceremony.

2. Claims That She Received a College Degree Are in Question

Although her website bio says she graduated with a degree from a university in Slovenia, according to The Huffington Post she actually dropped out after her freshman year. When she was 18, she moved to Milan to pursue her modeling career.

3. Barbara Walters Thinks She’s Smart

After a 2015 look into the private lives of the Trumps for an episode of 20/20, Walters told Robin Roberts on Good Morning America, “Because she’s so beautiful, we don’t expect her to be as smart as she is.”

4. She’s a Jewelry Designer

In 2010, the model partnered with QVC to launch her own line of fashion jewelry and watches, which naturally features a replica of her own 15-carat engagement ring. Naturally.

5. She Speaks Five Languages

Yep, according to CBS News, the potential First Lady speaks Slovenian, French, Serbian, German, and English.

6. She Has a Caviar Skin-care Line

Because, duh. Are you really even rich if you don’t put caviar on your face? Her website claims it’s imported from a farm in France.

7. She Would Be the First First Lady to Ever Pose Nude

In 2000, Melania posed nude—handcuffed to a briefcase inside then-boyfriend Donald Trump’s private jet—in a photo shoot for British GQ. So there’s that.

8. She Tells Don What She Thinks

At a recent rally in Arizona, Trump told the crowd that his wife and eldest daughter Ivanka are on him to “act presidential,” Peoplereported. Melania, who admitted to Today that she wishes Donald would give up tweeting, told CNN in a recent interview: “I’m my own person, I tell him what I think. I’m standing very strong on the ground on my two feet and I’m my own person. And I think that’s very important in the relationship.”

9. She’ll Campaign Against Cyberbullying as First Lady

A few weeks before Election Day, Melania announced during a campaign speech in Pennsylvania that her cause as first lady will be fighting against cyberbullying. The announcement was met with criticism on social media (notably, this tweet from Lady Gaga) due to Trump’s penchant for starting Twitter wars.
