Jackie Siegel, 'Queen of Versailles' Star, Once Dated Donald Trump
Jackie Siegel, the star of the documentary Queen of Versailles, claims that she went out on dates with real estate tycoon Donald Trump before settling down with her husband, timeshare mogul David Siegel.
"We just went out a couple times," Mrs. Siegel told HuffPost Live. "Like, he invited us to Mar-a-Lago and go to his parties and things like that. He's a really great person. So much charisma.
"I'm so glad we're still friends," Mrs. Siegel said of Trump, adding "He in fact wrote me and my husband a note because we were in the New York Post last week and he said 'Congratulations on the construction of your home."'
Siegel, 47, and her husband are the focus of the award-winning documentary, Queen of Versailles, which followed them and and their construction of a new mansion, measuring 90,000 square-feet and modeled after the French 17th century Palace of Versailles. Lauren Greenfield directed the project that gave viewers a glimpse into the lives of the Siegel's along with their eight children, 19 staff members and four dogs as the lavish digs were completed.
Although David Siegel filed a lawsuit against Greenfield following what he felt was an unflattering representation in the documentary, Jackie Siegel has continued to promote it. Construction on the palatial residence was halted in 2008 after the stock market crash, but the former Trump arm candy says that it has since resumed.
