In yet another phone call recording leak, the current FLOTUS sounded really surprised about the fact that superstar Beyonce made it on the cover of Vogue back in 2018. Just like the previous recordings in which Melania Trump dished Christmas and shared her opinion on her husband’s border separation policy and more, this new audio was released by Melania’s former best friends and advisor, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff.
She has also famously published a book exposing her ex-BFF titled Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady.
As for the new leak, Melania Trump can be heard, sounding rather shocked that Beyonce was on the cover of Vogue in their September 2018 issue.
Not only that, but she was also shocked about the performer being given ‘editorial input’ as well, based on Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour’s wishes.
The secretly recorded phone call of Melania and Stephanie was shared by the latter via NBC, the network mentioning that the FLOTUS ‘appeared to express astonishment’ over Anna Wintour’s decision.
‘Anna gave the September issue of Vogue cover — complete, complete, complete, everything — to Beyonce,’ Melania told her former BFF over the phone.’
She went on to also express surprise over the fact that [at the time] 23-year-old photographer, Tyler Mitchell was hired to take Beyonce’s pictures for the cover.
Mitchell would actually become the very first Black photographer to shoot a cover for the prestigious magazine.
‘She hired a Black photographer. And it is the first Black photographer ever doing a cover of Vogue,’ Melania Trump told Stephanie, since the latter was actually the special director of events for Vogue prior to her working for Melania as an advisor.
Now, Melania’s spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham dragged Stephanie via NBC News, saying that ‘Her narcissism knows no bounds, this woman is a fraud. These audiotapes are hand picked about nonsense and then presented with no context. Shame on her for this attempt at character assassination and shame on NBC for covering this gossip.’
