Stephanie Winston Wolkoff and Melania Trump were friends for fourteen years and now they aren’t. Wolkoff has a new book out called “Melania and Me” which promises to be a bombshell. First Donald Trump’s own niece writes a devastating critique of her uncle, then a recording of his sister calling him all sorts of horrible things is released and now this. What next? A book that reveals all the dirt on the Trump Administration written by Donald Trump himself?
A former trusted advisor of the First Lady’s, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff was once a fashion director and she served as the executive producer and chief creative officer for the Trump inauguration in 2017. Now she says that she might have recordings of conversations she had with the First Lady in which Melania Trump says some embarrassing things.
Stephanie Winston Wolkoff told MSNBC on Tuesday that she had in fact made audiotapes and that the Melania Tapes exist: “Melania and the White House had accused me of criminal activity, had publicly shamed and fired me, and made me their scapegoat. At that moment in time, that’s when I pressed record. She was no longer my friend and she was willing to let them take me down and she told me herself that is the way it has to be.”
“She turned her back, she did, she folded like a deck of cards and I was shocked when she did it.”

But the First Lady’s team struck back. Melania Trump’s chief of staff Stephanie Grisham told MSNBC “It’s really unfortunate to take advantage of somebody’s trust like that while being a friend,”
And Grisham told ABC, “Anybody who secretly tapes their self-described best friend is by definition, dishonest. The book is full of mistruths and paranoia, and clearly based on some imagined need for revenge.”
According to The New York Times, Ms. Winston Wolkoff, claims that she was instrumental in “helping create Mrs. Trump’s child-focused Be Best campaign, and that she tried hard to get Mrs. Trump to wear American designers. She also tried to get Melania Trump to see that there was something hypocritical about adopting cyberbullying as a cause, considering her husband’s constant negative Tweets.

Now it is revealed that Melania really hates her step-Daughter Ivanka calling her “Princess” derisively and is constantly competing with her for the spotlight.
“Melania was not thrilled about Ivanka steering the schedule and would not allow it,” Wolkoff writes. “Neither was she happy to hear that Ivanka insisted on walking in the Pennsylvania Avenue parade with her children.”
So what caused the falling out between the two BFFs and why the new tell-all book? Well in February 2018 it was revealed that her company was paid nearly $26 million to plan the Trump inauguration. As a result of the ensuing bad press, the Trumps cut Winston Wolkoff loose. She feels that they “threw her under the bus.”
On Melania Trump she writes, “Her selfishness is so deep, it enables her to keep her distance from the rest of the world.”
