Things you didn't know about Marla Maples
Marla Maples is an enigmatic figure who has circled the far edge of pop culture for more than 20 years, due primarily to whom she's known rather than the things she's done herself.

The 53-year-old native Georgian is a woman of contradictions, a southern-fried hippie and "a vegan, yet part-time carnivore" who believes in wellness as a core guiding principle for her life as an actress, singer-songwriter, and mom. Oh, and she was married to now-President Donald Trump for six years in the '90s, a relationship that drew more than its fair share of tabloid attention over the course of the decade. She's always up in the news being mentioned for some reason or another, these days—so let's dive deep and find out who she really is.
