Ivana Trump, the former wife of President Donald Trump and mother to three children, including Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric, died on Thursday at age 73, according to The New York Times.

The Czech-American model was Ivana Marie Zelníčková by birth. She tied the knot with Donald in 1977 and divorced the business magnate in 1990. 

Ivana’s life took a turn when she became the victim of Trump’s affair. The news made headlines and turned her into an idol for betrayed ex-wives everywhere.

Ivana even wrote numerous books about the matter, like 1995’s The Best Is Yet to Come: Coping With Divorce and Enjoying Life Again, and her bequest as one of the most popular ex-wives in the world was hardened when she appeared in The First Wives Club, a 1996 comedy film.

The film is about three women who get together to plot revenge on their ex-husbands for abandoning them and replacing them with younger models. Ivana plays herself in one scene where she attends a party. 

Her appearance in the film was brief but unforgettable, as she left an iconic piece of advice for three cast-aside spouses portrayed by Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler, and Diane Keaton. 

“Ladies, you have to be strong and independent,” Ivana says to them. “And remember… don’t get mad, get everything.” 

In 2017, Ivana made a cameo in Good Morning America, calling herself “basically first Trump wife,” further saying, “I’m First Lady, okay?” even though President Trump was married to Melania Trump at the time of his service in office. 

She was married to two men following her marriage with Trump, the latest being Rossano Rubicondi. She divorced him in 2009, but they still had an on-and-off relationship until last year, when he passed away at age 49. 

The cause of death is unknown at this time.
