In 2007, I interviewed Maples for a short-lived ABC reality show "The Ex Wives Club"
about helping divorcees put their lives back together.
Here's an excerpt of what I wrote at the time:
In the shadow of the Donald,
said, "it was a constant job to hold on to who I was." Daughter Tiffany and a teacher in Israel, she said, helped her move beyond the marriage itself.
A decade after leaving Trump (who the New York Post once quoted her as saying gave her the "best sex I've ever had")
said she gets along fine with the real estate mogul and has even been to "The Apprentice" set a few times.
However, she didn't think the show worked as well when it moved to Los Angeles this past season. "He represents New York, " she said.
Here's the infamous New York Post cover of yore:
She's the second person with Georgia ties who is supposed to be on "Dancing With the Stars." Marietta's Kim Fields ("Real Housewives of Atlanta," "The Facts of Life," "Living Single") has also reportedly joined the cast.
All the cast members will be named on "Good Morning America" Tuesday. The season debuts in two weeks March 21.
