Former President Donald Trump‘s White House press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, has stirred up a new feud with former First Lady Melania Trump over her tell-all memoir, I’ll Take Your Questions Now, in which she recalls her time working at the White House under the Trump family.

“Stephanie knows she has mixed the hornet nest with this book,” a source told Politico. “Stephanie has secrets about Trump that the First Lady doesn’t even know. She’s a mystery she doesn’t want to know. They are in this book.”

Grisham first took the role of White House press secretary in July 2019 but left after never giving a briefing during her nine months in the post. She then returned to the East Wing to serve as the First Lady’s chief of staff.

Former President Trump had spoken about Grisham to reporters during his presidency, mentioning her efficiency at the time.

“Stephanie has been with me from the beginning, as most of you know,” said Trump. “And then over the last couple of years, she’s worked for the first lady and done a fantastic job. The first lady loves her, thinks she’s been, you know, just incredible. She’s very talented.”

But all that praise eventually disappeared with the release of her autobiography in October last year.

In her book, Grisham compared the former First Lady to “doomed French queen” Marie Antoinette regarding her response to the attack on the Capitol back in January 2021.

“Through mistruth and betrayal, she seeks to gain relevance and money at the expense of Mrs. Trump,” Melania Trump’s office responded to the book in a statement.

The former press secretary has also been known among White House reporters to have worked on Trump’s 2016 campaign, in which she functioned as a press aide, someone who traveled with the media and led them where they needed to be for events. The former First Lady had reportedly missed her chance to land the cover of Tatler because Grisham failed to negotiate the deal.

“She knows where all the bodies are buried because she buried a lot of them herself,” a source told Axios.
