Rest in Peace Ivana
Friends and family of Ivana Trump, the ex-wife of former President Donald Trump and mother of three of his children, are mourning the sudden death of the Manhattan socialite and businesswoman.
Roger Stone, a friend of Ivana Trump’s going back 50 years, remembered Ivana as “a gracious lady, a great mother and an incredible hostess.”
“I was sad to hear of her passing,” the former Trump political advisor added.
Designer Dennis Basso told The Post Trump “was a fabulous woman and a great friend of mine for 40 years. To hear this is absolutely devastating.”
Basso said the two “clicked as best friends” at a fashion show in 1983 where they soon “became like family.”
“We attended galas together, we traveled together with the kids; we spent Christmases together in Aspen. We had an unbelievable closeness.”
The designer described Trump as “a smart, determined businesswoman,” who “loved her children, and her grandchildren.”
Ivana Trump’s former publicist, Todd Shapiro, told The Post she will miss his monthly lunches with her and her dog, Tiger, and listening to her “priceless” stories about the ex-President.
She was a force to be reckoned with in the Trump empire, he said.
“She was the anchor of the Trump organization and made the Plaza Hotel into one of the most celebrated places in the world,” Shapiro said. “She ran Atlantic City’s Trump hotels like a five-star general. You couldn’t walk down the street without dozens of people stopping her. At one time she was more famous than Brad Pitt and Angelina combined.
“Even after marriage and a world war divorce, Donald was her best friend,” he said, adding that the exes talked “often.”
Broadway producer Judith Ann Abrams, Trump’s neighbor at her E 64th St. apartment, said she knew Ivana Trump since her divorce to Donald.
“What can I say about her? I think her life would have been easier if she changed her name,” Abrams told The Post.
“It’s the end of an era on this block. She was always very nice to us, very friendly… I’ll miss her.”
Ivana Trump, whom Abrams had last seen about five weeks ago, was “always” in the neighborhood with her dog Tiger.
She never appeared to look sick, she said, and remained composed throughout the incessant media attention she received as a result of her ex-husband’s presidency.
“She never complained. She was impeccable,” Abrams said. “Her hair was never out of place, she looked beautiful. If I was going through that I’d be in a permanent sweatsuit.”
“He would turn this into a whole publicity — and you wonder why she had a heart attack,” she added.
Former Veteran Fair columnist George Wayne said he was “very close” with Ivana Trump, whom he called his “Godmama Ivana.”
He recalled “great memories,” with her, although at heart he said she was “really quite the recluse.” He specifically remembered being with her the night the US Gulf War invasion kicked off in the early 1990s at the Plaza Hotel, where she reigned “queen” of the establishment.
“I’ll always remember the most exquisite chef dinner in the kitchen and watching CNN as bombs dropped over Kuwait. We sipped Veuve Cliquot, her favorite champagne on that occasion and so many others.
“I was at her last wedding and spent a memorable Christmas weekend in Palm Beach with my Godmama Ivana. May she rest in peace,” Wayne said. “I’m rather numb at the moment. The years of Trump presidency, she was really quite [a] recluse and closed off her circle.”
Author Dick Morris, a veteran political consultant whose father, Eugene Morris, was Donald Trump’s real estate lawyer, remembered having dinner with Donald and Ivana at their Central Park West apartment in 1977 when Ivana was in a cast after breaking her leg.
“I remember Donald maneuvering her so she could get a view of the park and skyline,” he said. “Donald had shown warmth and compassion in helping her.”
“He didn’t take her for granted,” he added.
Morris said Ivana Trump reminded him of Jackie Kennedy, with her “quiet dignity about her.”
Ronna McDaniel, chair of the Republican National Committee, tweeted on Thursday that she was “very saddened to learn of the passing of Ivana Trump. Please keep her children and the entire Trump family in your prayers.”
Former Trump White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany also sent her regards to the president’s family.
“My family and I send all of our love and prayers to President Trump @IvankaTrump @DonaldJTrumpJr @EricTrump and the entire Trump family for the loss of Ivana Trump. Thinking of you all during this very difficult time,” she wrote.
CNN anchor Jake Tapper offered his “deepest condolences” to the Trump family “and all those in the Trump family for the loss of their mother Ivana Trump today at the age of 73. May her memory be a blessing.”
Ivana Trump, the Czech American mother to Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric Trump, was found dead at her Upper East Side apartment on Thursday afternoon, although her official cause of death remains unclear.
She was married to the former president from 1977 to 1992.
“Our mother was an incredible woman — a force in business, world-class athlete, a radiant beauty, and caring mother and friend,” Ivana and Donald Trump’s third child Eric Trump said in a statement.
“It’s a very sad day, guys. It’s a very sad day,” Ivana and Donald Trump’s third child Eric Trump said Thursday afternoon as he left his mother’s home with his wife, Lara Trump.

Moon RIver - Breakfast at Tiffanys
"Moon River" is a song composed by Henry Mancini with lyrics by Johnny Mercer. It was originally performed by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 movie Breakfast at Tiffany's, winning an Academy Award for Best Original Song. The song also won the 1962 Grammy Awards for Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
The song has been recorded by many other artists. It became the theme song for Andy Williams, who first recorded it in 1962 (and performed it at the Academy Awards ceremony that year). He sang the first eight bars of the song at the beginning of each episode of his eponymous television show and named his production company and venue in Branson, Missouri, after it; his autobiography is called "Moon River" and Me. Williams' version was never released as a single, but it charted as an LP track that he recorded for Columbia on a hit album of 1962, Moon River and Other Great Movie Themes. In 2022, Williams' rendition of the song was selected for preservation in the Library of Congress.
The song's success was responsible for relaunching Mercer's career as a songwriter, which had stalled in the mid-1950s because rock and roll had replaced jazz standards as the popular music of the time. The song's popularity is such that it has been used as a test sample in a study on people's memories of popular songs.
Comments about the lyrics have noted that they are particularly reminiscent of Mercer's youth in the southern United States and his longing to expand his horizons. Robert Wright wrote in The Atlantic Monthly, "This is a love sung to wanderlust. Or a romantic song in which the romantic partner is the idea of romance.
“Moon River” had a rich history before Andy Williams first sang it, but his rendition took the classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s theme to a new level. The dreamy song clearly left a strong impression on the artist, as he later named his company, theater, and autobiography after it.
The song impacted the world just as much as it impacted Williams. Although “Moon River” was performed by other phenomenal artists like Audrey Hepburn and Jerry Butler, Williams’ rendition of the song charted exceptionally well despite never being released as a single.
“Moon River” has won a number of awards for its hopeful lyrics and smooth composition, but Andy Williams’ rich tenor voice evidently brought out the very best in the song.
“Moon River” was originally written by composer Henry Mancini and lyricist Johnny Mercer for the 1961 film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Mancini revealed in an interview that it only took him about 30 minutes to compose the song.
“It had to be in keeping with the character of Holly Golightly, the star character in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and I had to bear in mind the limitations of Audrey Hepburn’s voice,” he said. “I worked the whole song around a simple guitar basis, although the guitar isn’t heard much during the number.”
Mercer wrote the lyrics about a real river near his house in Savannah, Georgia. His window looked out at the river, and he had many fond memories there. The real river was originally called Back River, but it was officially renamed Moon River in honor of the song. Mercer’s home also became known as the Moon River House.
When the song was performed by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, it became an instant hit. Hepburn’s performance of “Moon River” won Best Arrangement, Record of the Year, and Song of the Year at the 1962 Grammys, as well as the Oscar for Best Original Song.
Andy Williams performed “Moon River” for the first time at the same Academy Awards ceremony.
The lyrics of “Moon River” are simple, but powerful. The song runs for a brief two minutes and 24 seconds, and there are only three verses with no true chorus.
In the song, the river acts as a metaphor for a lover. It is described as both a dream maker and a heartbreaker in the same line, emphasizing both the delightful and disastrous outcomes of relationships. Even knowing that it could go badly, the narrator is still determined to follow their heart.
Moon river, wider than a mile
I’m crossing you in style someday
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you’re going, I’m going your way
