Melania Trump publicly dismissed Ivana Trump earlier this week when the 68-year-old first wife of Donald Trump joked that she is really 'first lady' — but Ivana seems to have be feeling no conflict with her her ex's current wife.
On Thursday, the former Czech model flashed a peace sign to photographers as she stepped out in New York City, wearing a red trench coat and low Roger Vivier heels.
Ivana was heading to the Wendy Williams Show to promote her new book, Raising Trump, and smiled as paparazzi snapped her picture outside.

All love here! Ivana Trump flashed the peace sign as she stepped out in New York City on Thursday
Dolled up: The 68-year-old smiled as she headed to a taping of the Wendy Williams Show in a shiny red trench coat and Roger Vivier heels
On duty: She carried a Dior bag and wore her hair in her signature updo
Ivana 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 a segment for Friday's Wendy Williams Show, which the host teases 'put politics aside' and delves into family life.
Ivana found herself embroiled in some family drama this week, after a seemingly off-the-cuff remark prompted a public response from the first lady.

Promoting her book: Earlier this week, she joked that because she was Trump's first wife, she was first lady
No harm meant: She had said earlier that she did not want the job and would never say anything bad about Melania because she is 'family'
Fighting words: However, Melania issued a statement through her spokesperson that Ivana is attention-seeking and her first lady comment was 'self-serving noise'
On tour: Ivana is promoting her book, which takes a look at her family life
Dismissed: Though she said she would not say anything bad about Melania, she called Trump's second wife — with whom he had an affair while married to Ivana — 'nobody'
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?'
Press: She has been making many media appearances for Raising Trump
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.
Flashback: In May, Ivana wore the same red coat out in New York
Go-to accessories: She wore it with black pumps and carried the same Dior bag
Having fun: She spent three hours having a leisurely lunch with three friends
Relaxing: She ate at the Upper East Side's Altesi Ristorante, which serves Italian food and appears to be a go-to for her
Last time: She dressed up her look with big dangling earrings and a gold necklace
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.
