Who does that to someone who had once been their best friend?
Seriously, if someone you regarded as a "sister" (or "brother") for decades turned into a serial killer, would you give interviews to magazines describing what a jerk he was and all the douchey things he did back in high school?
Ivanka deserves to be fried for being complicit, but she sounds a lot like every other girl at Chapin and was clearly going out of her way to be nice to the fat girl who wrote the article.

R8 is right. While I love gossip, and can’t stand any of the Trumps, I’m also a bit leery when former best friends and associates (like the VF author, Michael Cohen and the Mooch), spill the beans - essentially when it’s purely for their own benefit.
I’m not saying Ms. Ohmstrom is so much wrong, but a tell-all about a former best friend is also pretty distasteful when all she’s just trying to grab her own headlines.

What perplexes my about Ivanka is the strange, artificial, slow, overly controlled, breathy way she speaks. It's really hard to listen to, one marvels at the alien creature and doesn't hear what she's saying. What she is saying, if you listen carefully, is a whole lot of nothing in attempt to impress. There's a lot of bragging going on, just like creepy old dad. Apparently her voice has changed over the years, probably from some sort of training.
She's created an elaborate façade hiding something that likely none of us would really want to know. The link is a little wonky but in one section she sounds far more normal, and with a New York accent, than in recent interviews.

I remember seeing Ivanka in Jamie Johnson's "Born Rich" and thinking that of all of the kids featured she was the smartest, most articulate and sensible. I was perfectly willing to give her the benefit of the doubt and thought she could break with her old man and be her own much,much better person. There was a giveaway, though: Ivanka told a story of how her father, after a bankruptcy, pointed to a homeless man outside of Trump Tower and said "that man has more money than I do now." She then said that she respected the fact that her father rebuilt his fortune (or at least told her he did - she was still pretty young). Jamie didn't ask her what she thought of the actual homeless guy - like, did she give him a quarter or anything? Maybe he thought it went without saying that she didn't dwell on the object lesson her father had just made of some completely random person's suffering - right in front of the person, no less.
That blind spot has become a black hole.

Not really juicy. I, too, am suspicious of someone who was best friends or formerly in the Trump administration. Did the friend expect Ivanka to publicly break ranks with her father?

I don't know why people keep saying this.
99.99999% of rich children DO NOT "break with" their parents for the obvious reasons. It's not even within the realm of reality that if you have a parent that's worth at least 50 or 100 million, that you're not going to try to stay in their good graces--especially if you have no talent of your own.
Ivanka and all of these kids have no special talents. I know so many rich adult wealthy children that I can't believe can make it through a meeting, they're so dim. Ivanka was never going to do anything special on her own. Sticking up for the old man--and making little snarky jokes behind his back while trying to seem more sophisticated than him--is the best she can ever do.

R43: Ivanka has made an effort - maybe taking classes - to alter her voice - similar way the Theranos chick did but in opposite direction.
Supposedly, Ivanka is enamored with Jackie O. so she started to emulate her manner of speaking. Ivanka's hips are too wide to dress similarly. And IT went so far as to name her daughter Arabella - the name of Jackie's stillborn daughter - let that ghoulishness wash over you for a moment. So everything about her is manufactured - listen to her old interviews or when she hosted her fathers pageants. As with her face, her voice and persona are all manufactured.
As an aside....in interviews with Dt and IT - he always mentions how beautiful she is....as if his genes had something to do with it and not the plastic surgeon - and she just smiles innocently as though she was blessed by genetics. I know - a very simple and pedestrian revelation about the world of delusion she exists in and was raised in but always strikes me as so odd when how she looks its referenced by them or the press and the reality is washed over

[Quote]I thought the same thing about Stephanie Winston Wolkoff.
The White House tried to blame SWW for losing/stealing/mishandling $68 M in unaccounted for inaugural funds. This was pay to play money provided by foreign entities and companies for access. Melania went along with it and froze her out. Fortunately, she's an incredible record keeper and has receipts for everything. Now, she's a witness in more than one court action and has expensive legal bills of her own.

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff seems very fragile and a bit unstable but I believe her now that she was not the thief. A year after the inauguration the info on the scandal started leaking and I thought she and Melanoma were in on it together.

With parents like these, how could Ivanka be anything but spawn of the devil?
She was likely raised by nannies with parents rarely present. Certainly Diaper Don wasn't around much. Independent at an early age, gadding about with daddy's credit cards, she was likely jaded and sophisticated before her time. Interesting she reinvented herself as a conservative Jewish mother seduced by political power along with her waxed corpse of a spouse. Without the compassion or intellectual chops to actually have a positive impact, she will be relegated to the freaky side of history, sort of a Lucrezia Borgia of the modern age.

Because it's true R119
Ivanka comes across no worse than any other entitled teenager and actually somewhat less so, since it's clear she's going out of her way to be nice to this fat chick who is new at school and makes attempts to keep the friendship going even when the fat chick gets snarky.
That Trump comes off a creepy and mean ("she doesn't need that grilled cheese") is no surprise and we all know Ivanka turned into a Complicit Trumpist.

I believe she went to boarding school.
Presumably, she had an opportunity there to interact with role models (teachers) who weren't the horrifying monsters her parents are. I know people are dazzled by wealth, but the children of the extremely wealthy are literally nothing special. Most times, their parents are nothing special except for their greed and sociopathic traits--this is ESPECIALLY true in the real estate development families. This kind of business attracts people of no particular talent or innovation.

R8, I thought the same at first after reading the article. It appears at first that the author betrayed a friendship. But if you think about the portrait she draws of Ivanka, the signs of who she became were present un her youth. Ivanka lets the other girls hang for the breast-baring incident. The author implies that Ivanka never grew up. In fact, she became more self-centered rather than caring. It wasn't a real friendship. She never cared about the friend's life, only how the friend fit into hers.
Ivanka comes off as a female version of her father. The friendship was purely transactional.
It was a good piece.

If you can't recognize Donald Trump is charismatic, then you don't understand what charisma is.
He attracts attention. That's charisma. Hitler was charismatic too. It doesn't mean that you like him, or that you find him attractive, or that you were taken in by his brand of charisma.
His kids, on the other hand, attract attention by playing on their father's name. They offer nothing outside of their connection to him.

[quote] But Ivanka was skilled at blunting her more Trumpian comments with equally typical acts of generosity. Once, she lent me her apartment for about six hours during a trip home from Lebanon so I could rendezvous with my boyfriend during one of his layovers. She connected me with Peter Kaplan, the late editor of the New York Observer, who hired me as a freelance writer between 2007 and 2009. When I was single, she and Jared often tried to set me up with a roster of eligible bachelors in what I always felt was an effort to elevate me to the ranks of people they wanted to socialize with. That was more or less the end. She still sent presents on my birthday and invited me to her Halloween birthday parties at Trump SoHo. When my son was born, she sent me a gold-plated bracelet engraved with his name. She was never impolite, but we no longer belonged to each other’s inner circles.

[Quote]This sounds like a jealous fatty BFF also trying to grift using the Trump name.
I honestly don't think she's out to make money or a name for herself -- a VF article's wages don't/won't outweigh the uneasy fact that, yeah, she betrayed a friend who didn't act meanly or underhandedly with her.
A lot of the post-marriage behavior the author described is SO typical of newlywed females. They develop a new identity separate from that they had with girlfriends and it means less time together and sometimes a divergence in values. But it sounds like Ivanka tried and did all of the normative things BFFs do for friends who drift apart. The author may not have liked or identified with Ivanka's new social circle, but Ivanka did try to be inviting. That doesn't happen all that often, especially when social classes and money divide people. The author may be old Newport, but her own financial ability was well below the Kushner's.
Finally, the "gold plated" bracelet barb. How did she know it was gold plated? Did she scratch it or take it to Tiffany's for authentication?
Yes, Ivanka morphed into a monster, but it had nothing to do with this BFF. If only the author had tried a sympathetic approach about how an average, normal human born into a sociopathic family tried to be decent, but was finally swamped by their horrific behavior. But the author's lack of journalistic talent coupled with obvious unresolved hurt feelings got in the way.

Ivanka is a year younger than me, so reading this ex-friend's memories of junior high and high school brought some memories flooding back to me. Plenty of kids were doing the faux grunge thing...I recall our band director being absolutely livid at our spring recital in eighth grade, because one of the prettiest girls (who played clarinet and sat at the end of the semi-circle nearest our parents in the audience) wore her Doc Marten boots with a short skirt. Oddly, girls seemed to get away with stuff like this more than guys...we all wore khakis and a polo for the recital.
I applaud the ex-friend (I don't care enough to look up her name) for writing this and putting it out there. They were friends for over a decade, and she was one of two maids of honour. Of course she's hurt that she feels like she doesn't know her friend anymore. But from some of the anecdotes she shares, the nastiness was always brewing under Ivanka's surface, and so quite frankly it's not a surprise she turned her back on her friend. Good riddance, if nothing else.

Ivanka is the incest poster child. She's a middle-aged woman, supposedly happily married with children and businesses of her own, but whose entire life revolves around pleasing and being at the beck and call of her lover-father. She has no visible personality of her own and everything about her from her hair and clothes to her cosmetic surgery reflects the preferences of her 74-year-old father, not current fashions or even the tastes of a woman of her own generation. The idea of her having meaningful friendships is laughable. There is no one really in her life besides her father.
