The 69-year-old entrepreneur and former model, Ivana Trump, proved that she can still 'trip the light fantastic' when she appeared on a reality dance show. 


On May 4, 2018, television presenter and pro-dancer on Ballando Con Le Stelle, Samanta Togni, shared a video clip of the practice session with her 85,000 Instagram followers. 

The episode aired in Italy the following day, and the audience was treated to Ivana Trump and her dance partner, Rossano Rubicondi, doing the waltz. 

As reported by Daily Mail, the couple took part in the reality competition while on their 'Roman getaway.' Rubicondi was Ivana's fourth husband.


According to People, Ivana made a scathing remark two years ago when Trump's ex-wife, Marla Maples, appeared on Dancing With The Stars. 

Of the woman who ruined her marriage to Donald Trump, Ivana said that Maples had ''no class,'' and added that she personally wouldn't dance on a reality show in ''those tiny dresses.'' 

Fox News reported that Ivana chose a long-sleeved 'partially see-through' red dress with sequined detail for her dance routine on Ballando Con Le Stelle


Ivana and Rubicondi tied the knot in April 2008, sixteen years after Ivana's divorce from her second husband, Donald Trump. By December 2008, Ivana filed for a separation agreement from Rubicondi. 

Their divorce was finalized by 2009, however, she admits that they have an 'on-again/off-again' relationship and are currently dating. 


On May 4, 2018, they were spotted strolling arm-in-arm through the streets of Rome. Ivana was wearing a coral-colored pantsuit and high heels while Rubicondi cut a dashing figure in his a black suit and unbuttoned white shirt. 

Ivana also made headlines in 2017 when she released her biography, Raising Trump. The book details her upbringing, as well as raising her three children, Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric. 

'It wasn’t easy to raise three kids as a full-time working mother, even with nannies. The logistics of just getting them there was a nightmare. We had limos and company cars with drivers to take them.'
