    • I totally agree. This woman looks like she’s in her mid-40s – or possibly early-50s. Not sure why they’re lying about it. When men marry women who are 20 and 30 years younger – nobody blinks. But when a woman marries a younger man, I guess there’s still an unfair stigma attached. Regardless – there’s no way this woman is in her 30s – so it’s silly for them to lie about it.

      • I agree 3 ! LOL….. every picture I just kept thinking “there is NO WAY she is in her thirties!!!!! she looks mid-40’s at best”…… Probably didn’t think she could still get pregnant and now did IVF/bought eggs or embryos

  1. The Trump children that it would have been too expensive to send many money orders in many languages to many countries. Therefore having a plane chartered to send the non ransom. It was a coincidence that the hostages had just arrived and they had to wait for the other to land as it would have been too crowded on the runway. He tried to save us money by not buying the money orders. “He wouldn’t do it again like HC with her emails”. Do the models in your family feel that Orange Jumpsuits would be appropriate entering Gitmo which will be empty after January 2017?

  2. Is she truly American with American ancestry or a first born of immigrants from Ugoslavia etc. She looks awfully like Melania looks like some kind incestual thing or

  3. eric and his brother are disgusting wild life killers…their greed and insensitivity is disgusting. and Gee eric is kind of ugly and his wife looks like a beast…hard and cold

  4. She’s an animal welfare advocate yet married this little Trumper who kills animals for fun?????

    When is he going to be able to stop using that lice treatment on his hair?

  5. How can she possibly call herself an animal lover/advocate when Eric is well known as a trophy hunter killing leopards, elephants etc? Talk about hypocrisy! Neither is very attractive, I hope they continue with the “no kids” status.

  6. NO! Marg Jones Tanquary, in Europe (speaking as someone from London I think I’m slightly more of an expert on this than someone from Michigan) his hair is not considered attractive, but rather a laughable 80s throwback! I actually found this site whilst Googling “Why do the Trump sons grease their hair back?” As I’ve been so bemused by men with so money & therefore presumably access to the better taste & advice of others, even though they obviously have none of their own. But forlorn hope really; over , quite apart from his policies, his mouthing off , his sexual offending history & the general odious was of the man Trump’s ‘hair’ would’ve meant he’d never’ we been elected, so it’s like father… Now I fear they’re even messing around with poor little Barron’s hair ( Barron! Honestly! What a name! )!

    • “Barron” is the name Nicky Hilton (a real billionaire) gave to one of his kids. trump’s always been kind of dazzled and tries to emulate the genuine success of a Nicky Hilton. Best he can do is use the son’s name.

  7. I bet Eric would like to put that Beagle’s head on his wall, next to the other animals he’s murdered. Pathetic. The whole family is greasier than the Gottis.

  8. If you are a real animal lover ! Please tell your husband and your brother in law to stop killing innocent animals for fun!!! Stop your sister and mother in law from using fur in their clothing business! Also please take actions against eating dog and cat meat in China and other Asians countrys !!! Please use your power to help the innocent, voiceless, and helpless animals! They could use all the help from people in your position ! Thank you on behalf of Animals!

  9. she works with animal rights charities and he is a big game hunter, just google and see pics of him with dead lions etc, They are full of it
