Ivana Zelnickova, Trump's first wife from 1977 to 1992 and who is mother to Eric, Donald, and Ivanka.

"He was a loving father, don't get me wrong, and he was a good provider, but he was not the father which would take a stroll and go to the Central Park or go play baseball with them or something", she said.

"I don't want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like that, because I'm basically first Trump wife. OK?"

Ivana was furious, but this tough lady, who was born and raised behind the Iron Curtain, kept her cool.

In an opening excerpt from the memoir, Ivana gives props to her sons for being family men and tag-teaming the family business, but she spends triple the word count on her star daughter, Ivanka.

Watching her children during the campaign inspired her to write her new book, "Raising Trump", she said.

"This young blonde woman approached me out of the blue and said 'I'm Marla and I love your husband". Their marriage had a messy ending when Donald Trump's affair with Marla Maples became public, with "The New York Post" publishing the then famous headline, "Best Sex I've Ever Had" in 1990. She told him, "I think you should tweet". Trump's marriage to Maples lasted from 1993 to 1999.

Spain's Abertis, Colonial Flee Catalonia as Independence Looms
Tensions have grown in Spain since last week when Catalonia held a regional vote for independence, an election deemed illegal by Madrid.

According to a report by Fox News, Ivana, in her book "Raising Trump" wrote that she wouldn't be surprised if Ivanka ran for the presidency in 15 years. "I can only shake my head at how insane it was", Ivana writes.

"I said 'Get lost".

In her autobiographical work, she writes about not breastfeeding her children, using spanking as a form of punishment and making them keep busy routines. Donald Jr. didn't speak to his father for a year after the split. "I couldn't turn on the television without hearing my name".

Ivana and Donald are on good terms now and she even gets along with his third wife Melania.

But she and the president have returned to far warmer terms. Her children also contribute passages to the book, and Ivana Trump muses that her former husband may not be the only Trump to call the White House home.

She said in a CBS News interview this week that she was offered the post of ambassador to the Czech Republic, her native country, but turned it down because she already has "a flawless life".

But, she said she doesn't miss a thing about her old life, and respects Melania Trump for stepping into the position of first lady.
