#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

What Melania wants, Melania gets.

The former director of special events at Vogue and producer of nine legendary Met Galas, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff met Melania Knauss in 2003 and had a front row seat to the transformation of Donald Trump’s then girlfriend from a rough-cut gem to a precious diamond. As their friendship deepened over lunches at Manhattan hot spots, black-tie parties, and giggle sessions in the penthouse at Trump Tower, Wolkoff watched the newest Mrs. Trump raise her son, Barron, and manage her highly scrutinized marriage.

After Trump won the 2016 election, Wolkoff was recruited to help produce the 58th Presidential Inaugu­ration and to become the First Lady’s trusted advisor. Melania put Wolkoff in charge of hiring her staff, organizing her events, helping her write speeches, and creating her debut initiatives. Then it all fell apart when she was made the scapegoat for inauguration finance irregularities. Melania could have defended her innocent friend and confidant, but she stood by her man, knowing full well who was really to blame. The betrayal nearly destroyed Wolkoff.

In this candid and emotional memoir, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff takes you into Trump Tower and the White House to tell the funny, thrilling, and heartbreaking story of her intimate friendship with one of the most famous women in the world, a woman few people truly understand.

How did Melania react to the Access Hollywood tape and her husband’s affair with Stormy Daniels? Does she get along well with Ivanka? Why did she wear that jacket with “I really don’t care, do u?” printed on the back? Is Melania happy being First Lady? And what really happened with the inauguration’s funding of $107 million? Wolkoff has some ideas...

    By way of clear and concise examples, Stephanie provides solid evidence of the unrelentingly abhorrent behavior of each Trump she had years of interactions with. Stephanie’s unwavering accuracy proves her to be more than just a reliable source of the horrifying truth, that each Trump is as despicable as they display themselves to be, but a principled witness to the unprincipled world of the Trumps...’a despicable Trump is a despicable Trump is a despicable Trump!’
  • So boring!

    The book is name dropping after name dropping of people that don’t offer anything to the story, the author listing her years of accomplishments and gossip that we have already seen on the internet. It is such a boring book. It doesn’t have an interesting story to tell, it has no depth, no point of view. The author is not creative or deep in her way to tell a story neither. The book has no texture, doesn’t leave you thinking, it’s such a waste of time. Totally disappointed with the quality of the writing.

    The author tells her story and it’s a good one. It is sad that millions of dollars could be used to do great things in our country instead of wasted throwing parties! What a shame.
  • Lots of twists and turns!

    Powerful story with lots of twists and turns that always kept me guessing. Just when I thought I had it figured out, things would change direction completely. I loved the suspense and the way the author kept things moving. Would definitely recommend!
  • What a page turner this is!

    This book confirms once and for all that our FLOTUS is a Bot! By the time I am through with the avalanche of contemporary memoirs of the Trump years, I will have learned so much about this abominable American dynasty! Thank you for your contribution.

    Apple needs to do better at taking down fake reviews!!! It’s despicable to see one star and nasty comments in the reviews section just because a book goes against their party, and comments stating and/or showing they didn’t read the book at all. I’m an avid reader of all types of books. I try to take in all sides (even if I don’t like it) and form my own opinion. Some books I borrow from the library because I refuse to give them money. We don’t always like or agree with the things that our friends or family do, say, stand for, etc... sometimes it takes several times of really bad things before we finally say enough is enough!

    I get why she wrote this! I think this story needed to be told. Not as much a political party story as one that anyone can be “had” as well as what can be learned! But good book if you want to be a fly on the wall of some real life stuff!

    At times interesting. I’m not a Trump supporter, but I don’t feel completely sorry for the author. My feeling about her is that she is bright enough to know what the Trumps are like, but she did not think they would use and abuse her because she is one of them.
  • Great book!!
