Familiar face: Trump’s ex-wife Marla Maples appears in HBO televangelist comedy

September 13, 2019

She’s Tiffany Trump’s mom and the Donald’s ex-wife—and Marla Maples finally has returned to the spotlight in a new television role, her first since she divorced the now-president in 1999.

The 55-year-old actress was down in South Carolina earlier this year, according to a report by CNN, where she shot her part in the HBO comedy series, The Righteous Gemstones.”

The show, starring Danny McBride and John Goodman, centers around a world-famous televangelist family with a long tradition of deviance, greed, and charitable work — all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Maples declined to comment through a spokesperson, but she posted an on-set photo, writing that she “couldn’t be happier.” The Georgia-born Maples said the last time she worked in the Carolinas, she was 18 years old, playing a small role in Stephen King’s Maximum Overdrive.

Months before the 2016 election, Maples hit primetime as a contestant on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. However, she has taken a low profile since Trump moved into the White House; as has Tiffany, who currently is studying law at Georgetown University.

Maples appeared in roles on several television programs while she was married to Trump, including Spin City and The Nanny.
