As far as famous last words go, this one’s a doozy: “I wouldn’t go on that show, dancing in those tiny dresses with the boobs and butt hanging out,” Ivana Trump wrote in her 2017 book, Raising Trump, of the decision of Marla Maples, a fellow former wife of Donald Trump, to compete on Dancing With the Stars.
The 69-year-old mother of Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric Trump appeared on the Italian version of Dancing With the Stars — known as Ballando Con Le Stelle — on Saturday night alongside her ex-husband Italian actor Rossano Rubicondi. Ivana Trump split from the now-46-year-old star just months after their 2008 marriage, but the former couple appeared to be amicable as they performed a waltz on the show.

There was no “tiny dress” for the grandmother, who opted instead for an embellished floor-length gown in see-through red material. Dark panels covered her breasts, while a Spanx-style slip ensured that her bottom was not “hanging out.”

Even so, the revealing gown has raised many eyebrows — Maples’s included, no doubt. Could a bid at the American version’s glitterball trophy be in the pipeline?
Loro sbagliano un pezzo di coreografia… io reagisco così. Da notare l’espressione incredula della signora Trump mentre gattono fuori dalla sala! #lavorarecolsorriso #momentidivertenti durante le prove a #ballandoconlestelle con @samuelperon
