She has always been a modest and outspoken young lady. She was afraid what people would say if she started working for Donald’s organization right away. There would accusations that she was spoiled, undeserving or that she’s cheating in life.

After a few interviews, she grew accustomed to the way “normal” people search for jobs.

Whoa! Donald Trump’s daughter and the most famous steroid abuser of all time? It’s like somebody wrote a script for a movie or something.

They were missing that crucial flair of romance and thus, the whole thing fell apart.

They never spoke badly about each other in the press. Ivanka said that she respects him a lot and wants him to beat the scandals he was having, as fast as possible. It’s lovely how two people can still have dignity and be gentle and courteous to each other. We still condemn Lance for his juicing, but you have to give him credit for this move though.

She denied the invitation and thanked the producers. In interviews, she cited that her career and family were a reason for the rejection of the offer. Aside from all the bad flack she receives, it’s awesome to see that Ivanka has her priorities in place. She wasn’t willing to jeopardize her career for five minutes of fame on a TV show!
