Marla Maples split from her big-business hubby nearly 11 years ago, but Donald Trump’s ex-wife still manages to pop up in the news on occasion.

Only a man as serious as Donald Trump would admit that his relationships often fail because women have trouble competing with his career. But in an interview with ABC a few years ago he conceded that it is difficult for them because he truly loves his work.

It seems like the only thing that could compete is his hair. I know, I know…it’s cliché to bring up The Donald’s hair, but I can’t resist. My leading theory is that it’s actually a rare lemur from Madagascar that he uses as a sort of daily good luck charm. Either way, I dig it.

Most people have heard of his first wife Ivana Zelničkova, primarily because of their two children together, Donald Jr, and Ivanka. But his lesser-known second wife is the subject of this write-up.

Marla Maples, married the tough talking deal maker back in 1993. Their six year relationship was highly publicized, and also resulted in a daughter named Tiffany.

Marla is 46-years-old, and appears to be skilled in a few different fields. She currently hosts a radio show that I assume airs in the morning, called ‘Awakening With Marla.’ On top of that daily gig, she has been known as a singer/songwriter, and even appeared on a show called ‘The Ex-Wives Club.’

This nature lover resides in Malibu, California, and spends a great deal of time at the beach. In an interview for Housing Watch, she gave her thoughts on moving to California:

“I think California and this area is a spiritual healing center. Coming from a big city like New York this was a place I could really heal and learn and really grow.”

It sounds like she prefers the laid back lifestyle that Cali has to offer.
