“We speak to each other,” Ivana Trump said in an interview with CBS News. “Maybe once a week. He’s still asking for advice, yes. He ask me about, ‘Should I tweet? Should I not tweet?’ I said, “I think you should tweet. It’s a new way, a new technology. And if you want to get your words across rightly, without telling The New York Times, which is going to twist every single word of yours, this is how you get your message out.'"

Ivana continued, “It’s a tweeting president. This is his new way, how to put the message across. And he’s right.”

In a new book, Raising Trump, Ivana reflects on raising their three children — Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric — and says she was inspired by their poise on the campaign trail.

“I was very, very proud of them because they were articulate, intelligent,” she said.

In 1991, Ivana shared with Inside Edition her recipe for traditional Czech goulash, a dish she often made for her kids.

It all started when the model, who was in her 20s at the time, was tapped on the shoulder at a New York City nightspot more than 40 years ago.

“I turn around. And there is a blond, blue-eyed guy. And he said, 'I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry. My name is Donald Trump. And I can see the girls, you are looking for a table,’” she said in the interview.

Eight months later in 1977, she and Trump, then 30, were married in a lavish ceremony.

They were often photographed around town until the early 1990s, when Trump’s affair with Marla Maples led to a messy divorce.

“I don’t talk about her," Ivana said. "She’s a showgirl. Never achieve anything in her 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.

“I have a beautiful home here,” she said. “I have a spectacular apartment in Miami. I have a 300-year-old fisherman house in harbor of Saint Tropez. What more can I have?"

Ivana said she has been offered a position of ambassador to her native Czech Republic, but she has no plans to accept the position.

She joked, “Why would I go and say bye-bye to Miami in the winter, bye-bye to Saint-Tropez in the summer, and bye-bye to spring and fall in New York? I have a perfect life."
