Marla Maples

American model and sometime actress, a gorgeous woman best known for being the "other woman" in the Donald and Ivana Trump split. Surviving the media attention as "bimbo of the week", Maples became Trump's second wife and mother of his fourth child.

An only child growing up in Dalton, GA., Marla's father was a small-time subdivider, a deacon in the Baptist Church with a golden tenor, and an Elvis imitator. Marla was baptized when she was nine and was a devout Baptist thereafter. Her parents were divorced around the same time that she and her mother were approached by "Playboy" to pose nude in a mother-daughter spread when Marla was 16; she would have none of it. A tomboy, Marla earned trophies for basketball and swimming, played the clarinet, and then decided to enter the Miss Georgia Teen contest, where she was first runner-up. By the time she left high school, she had been elected homecoming queen, given the Hustle Award for her basketball playing, and graduated with academic honors. She entered the University of Georgia in 1981, majoring in marketing, but quit after two and a half years.

Maples moved to New York in 1985, did some modeling and bit parts in movies and television. While in New York, she lived with another actor, Tom Fitzsimmons. Maples liked to vacation in Aspen, but it isn't exactly known when she met Trump: supposedly they bumped into each other on Madison Avenue. Sometime in 1988, Maples began showing up with the still-married Trump in Atlantic City. Though discretion prevailed, there was a major confrontation between Ivana Trump and Maples in Aspen on 12/31/1989 when Ivana realized that Maples was in the same restaurant. By 4/19/1990, when Maples was interviewed on national television, the Maples-Trump relationship was a media event. Maples was receiving not only headlines but papers from Ivana's lawyer ordering her to testify about her friendship with Trump. The divorce between Ivana and Donald was becoming public and nasty. At that time, Maples got a modeled contract for "No Excuses" jeans for $600,000, donating $25,000 of it to an environmental group.

Donald and Ivana separated in 1990, and Maples began appearing publicly with Trump that October. The divorce was official in 1992; her own relationship with Trump had tempestuous periods such as a public screaming match in a restaurant in October 1992. Marla's career benefited from the media attention and she was selected for a part in the "Will Rogers Follies."

At a press conference on 4/07/1993, Donald Trump announced that Marla was pregnant. Baby Tiffany arrived on 10/03/1993. Trump and Maples married in two months later; on 12/20/1993 in a million-dollar wedding at the Plaza Hotel in New York. During their three-year courtship, wedding plans had been canceled nearly a dozen times. On-and-off headlines continued through the marriage, reporting such incidents as Maples and a bodyguard being stopped by the police on a secluded beach in April 1996. Maples and Trump announced a separation in May 1997, with speculation that after three-and-a-half years, the pre-nuptial clauses would make divorce more expensive for Trump. The pre-nup called for a settlement of $2 million, which Marla agreed to accept, thus clearing the way for their divorce to become final 6/08/1999. Trump will provide an undisclosed amount for the care of their daughter, Tiffany.

October 1999, Maples announced her engagement to movie producer Michael Mailer. A date had not been set yet.
