the last book I ever read (The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump, excerpt twelve)

from The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump by Mary Jordan:

Marriage thus far had not been a success story for Trump. His first one, to Ivana, ended badly. The second, to Marla, included the sting of having Marla caught on a beach late at night with one of his security guys. People close to Trump said they had never seen him so furious and humiliated. In January, Marla announced that she was publishing a memoir, All That Glitters Is Not Gold, and that it was not expected to be flattering to Trump. Trump is known for threatening to sue to try to stop books about him from being published. Marla’s memoir never appeared, eventually being withdrawn “by mutual consent.”

Jay Goldberg, Trump’s friend and lawyer who worked on his divorce from Ivana, said marriage hadn’t been an easy fit for Trump, who was always looking for the next thing. “I noticed in the relationship with Marla, the philosophy that there’s nothing that destroys love except for marriage… that if you have steak every night, you get tired of it,” Goldberg told me. “He was so in love with Marla when he was cheating on Ivana. Then once they got married, the fun of the chase was over.”
