She might be worth a reported $60 million, but Ivana Trump appeared to be enjoying the simple life while running a series of errands in New York City, donning a sporty tracksuit for her outing, which came hours after she told chat show host Wendy Williams that Melania needs to 'get over' their alleged feud.
President Trump's ex-wife, 68, modeled a maroon Adidas ensemble, with the brand's logo in her back and trademark three stripes snaking down her legs, as she stepped inside a nondescript deli to pick up a few bananas.
In addition to stopping for a fruity snack, the Czech-born businesswoman and former model stopped to admire puppies through a window shop, as passersby are wont to do when they walk past a pet store.

Cosmetics: Ivana went to a drug store to look at some Eucerin intensive repair lotion, which typically retails for less than $10

Ivana also picked up some Japanese food at a casual eatery on Lexington Avenue, before going inside a drug store to look at some Eucerin intensive repair lotion, which typically retails for less than $10.
Her outing came just after she made an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, during which she spoke to the host about her alleged feud with the president's current wife Melania, which was sparked after Ivana described herself as the first lady during a televised interview.
Melania quickly fired back at her husband's first wife via a public statement in which she branded her attention-seeking, slamming her first lady comments as 'self-serving noise'.
And while Ivana initially held back from responding, she seemed more than happy to address the situation as she sat down with Wendy, telling the chat show host that she 'doesn't know what Melania's problem is', before insisting that the first lady needs to 'get over' the entire situation.
The president's first wife then elaborated on her controversial 'first lady' comment, noting that while Melania is the 'first lady of America' she – as Donald Trump's first spouse – will always be 'first lady Trump'.
As Ivana's interview – which was filmed on Thursday, before airing on Friday morning – came out, Melania was busy fulfilling her duties as 'first lady of America', supporting her husband during a press conference at the White House.

Standing alongside the president as he addressed reporters, Melania looked every inch the fashionable first lady, wearing a chic Burberry trench and black trousers, while adding a pair of dark glasses to her ensemble, despite the rather gloomy, grey weather.
Her smart outfit was a far cry from the dressed-down, sporty ensemble that her alleged rival opted for on Friday afternoon.
When she was done with her errands, Ivana headed back to her Upper East Side townhouse, which, incidentally, is just around the corner from the home of Marla Maples, who famously had an affair with Donald while he was still married to his first wife, and her daughter Tiffany Trump.
While she donned an athletic outfit, the former model showed her support for her fashion-forward daughter Ivanka by pairing the tracksuit with chic ballet flats from the first daughter's eponymous fashion line, finishing off the look with her beloved Dior purse, which costs just over $2,100.
She also brought a pair of Burberry-check reading glasses with her, which she put on in order to get a better look at the bananas while at the deli.

The day before her errands sessions, Ivana flashed a peace sign to photographers in New York City, perhaps as a sign that she was extending an olive branch to Melania – although given her comments on Wendy's show this may indeed not be the case.
Ivana wore a red trench coat and low Roger Vivier heels as she headed to the Wendy Williams Show to promote her new book, Raising Trump, and smiled as paparazzi snapped her picture outside.
She was buttoned-up in the head-turning red trench, which she'd been spotted in earlier this year while out for a lunch at the Upper East Side Italian eatery Altesi Ristorante.
She wore her hair piled on top of her head in her signature blonde updo, which showed off her large hoop airings and pink lipstick. A bodyguard helped her from her car and into the studio.
She was heading inside to film her segment for Friday's Wendy Williams Show, which the host teased 'put politics aside' and delved into family life.
Ivana first found herself embroiled in some family drama this week, after her seemingly off-the-cuff remark about being the real first lady prompted the very public response from Melania.

While promoting her book, she told ABC's Good Morning America that while she has a 'direct number to the White House', she doesn't usually use it.
'I don't really want to call him there because Melania is there, and I don't want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like that,' she said while laughing. 'Because I'm basically first Trump wife, okay? I'm first lady, okay?'

Though the laughter seems to indicate that she meant the 'first lady' comment as a joke, Melania felt compelled to respond and shut it down.
Her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, released a statement that Ivana's claim had 'no substance.'
'Mrs. Trump has made the White House a home for Barron and the President. She loves living in Washington, DC and is honored by her role as First Lady of the United States. She plans to use her title and role to help children, not sell books,' she said.
'There is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex. Unfortunately only attention seeking and self-serving noise.'
Though Ivana's first lady joke was widely printed, she had also said earlier in the week that she did not want the job, saying 'not at all' when asked on Fox News' "Fox and Friends whether it should be hers.
'Washington is tough, tough town. I was asked to be American ambassador to Czech Republic. I told him, I said, you know, if he would ask me 10, 15 years ago I would do it,' she said.
She also promised that she would never publicly insult Melania.
'I sent Melania the text, that the last thing I would like to do is say something bad about you, you know because you are family. And I don't say anything bad or do anything back to the family member,' she said.
She also referred to Melania as 'first lady' on CBS Sunday Morning when asked about whether she gets along with the other wives in Trump's life.
'One is nobody. And the other one is first lady,' she said.
