Before Melania Trump came into his life, Donald Trump was certainly a popular bachelor in the elite world of celebrities and royals. In fact, once upon a time the President went out for a night on the town with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards.
Recently, the ladies from RHOBH met with Bravo host Andy Cohen to chat about their latest season. Andy surprised the cast members when he brought up the presidential dating rumor and almost took the breath away from Richards.
Gasps resonated from the girls when Cohen turned to Kim and said, “One thing I have to ask you before we get onto everything that happened this season. I heard a rumor you once dated Donald Trump.”
Richards didn’t give away much but admitted that the two had dinner once. When the other cast members started to probe her with questions, she respectfully said, “I don’t want to talk about the president.”
Cohen quickly let Richards off the hook but not without fitting in a little joke and smile saying, “Kim could have been our first lady!”
Richards and her 90210 neighbors have let Bravo cameras into their glamorous lives for seven seasons. She entered the celebrity life at a young age when she was a 70s child star in shows like Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color.
There’s no details of when the date occurred. Richards, 52, likely met Donald just before the height of his commercial success in the early 1990s. Trump started seeing is now wife, Melania Knauss, in 1998 when she was working as a model in New York City. The two met through a friend at a Midelfart to a Fashion Week party and were married in 2005.
Melania is staying in NYC with her son Barron until the end of the school year when the two will join Donald at the White House. “She’s ready. She’s doing everything but packing,” said Stephanie Grisham, Melania’s new Deputy Press Secretary.
