(DAILY MAIL) -- The turmoil in the West Wing was briefly eclipsed by feuding in the East Wing on Monday, as first lady Melania hit out at the president's ex, Ivana.
The president's first wife stirred up controversy this morning, when she spoke about her close relationship with her ex in an interview on Good Morning America to promote her new book, Raising Trump.
Ivana said she speaks to the president about once every two weeks, and even has a direct number to the White House, but doesn't use it because she doesn't want to cause any issues between the president and Melania.

'Melania is there and I don't want to cause any kind of jealousy or anything like that because I'm the first Trump wife. I'm the first lady, OK?' she said.
