Marla Maples (born October 27, 1963) is an American celebrity, best known for her former marriage to billionaire celebrity Donald J. Trump.
Maples was born in Dalton, Georgia to Ann, a former office worker, and Stan Maples, a real estate developer. Currently she lives in Los Angeles, California with her daughter by Trump, Tiffany Ariana. In May 2007, she became part of the television show, "The Ex-Wives Club". In July 2007, Maples was briefly seen in a segment of the 1-hour NBC special "Victoria Beckham: Coming To America" during which Beckham is invited to lunch with a group of Beverly Hills socialites.
Maples was ridiculed on VH1's "Best Week Ever" as being known only for her marriage to Trump.
When she was the girlfriend of entrepreneur Donald Trump, she discovered that more than 40 pairs of her high-heeled shoes were missing, she installed a video camera in her bedroom closet to catch the culprit. On July 15, 1992, the camera reportedly recorded Maples's publicist, Chuck Jones, stealing another pair. New York police raided Jones's office and recovered the shoes, as well as a copy of Spike, a pornographic magazine for shoe fetishists. Jones pleaded not guilty to the charges.
She appeared as a celebrity guest at WWF WrestleMania VII in 1991, and also served as special guest timekeeper in the main event match between Hulk Hogan and defending WWF Champion Sgt. Slaughter.
On March 2008, it was thought that Maples was dating Andy Baldwin. However, pictures of them together turned out to be nothing more than a publicity stunt for Maples' new reality TV show. Marla Maples dated Anand Jon Alexander for about two years before Anand was arrested for serial rape in 2007. Anand was also charged for committing lewd acts in 2003. Marla continues to support Anand and even visits him in jail.
