For a grandmother of six, Ivana Trump’s looking pretty good. More than pretty good.
On Saturday night, Donald Trump’s first ex wife, 67, cohosted a shindig at Island Gardens marina and event space on Watson Island to help nightlife legend Michael Capponi and local singer Dilay Bayraktar celebrate their birthdays. The event benefited Capponi’s foundation, the Global Empowerment Mission, dedicated to helping Haiti; $80,000 was raised.
Ivana — whose daughter Ivanka gave birth to son Theodore last month and forgot to register in time as a Republican (!) — arrived with her younger (naturally) Italian beau, Miami real estate pro Marco Antonio Rota, in a black and flesh- toned sparkly mini dress.
Um, Donald who?!
Actually, the two exes are amicable. The Czech recently gave an interview to The New York Post and said the billionaire GOP frontrunner turns to her for advice.
“We speak before and after the appearances and he asks me what I thought,” said Ivana, who received a boatload in the divorce settlement. We’re talking their former 45-room Greenwich, Connecticut, mansion, a pad in Trump Plaza, use of Mar-a-Lago for one month every year, plus $14 million. “He’s very outspoken. He just says it as it is.”
The evening included cocktails under the stars, dinner, a live auction and musical performance by Dilayla. The auction featured a sculpture by French artist, Richard Orlinski, for $11,500 and two trips to Haiti auctioned off at $6,000.
