Melania Trump’s onetime best friend Stephanie Winston Wolkoff penned an essay that calls out the former first lady’s ex-chief of staff Stephanie Grisham over her new tell-all, “I’ll Take Your Questions Now.”

“There are people who build things and people who destroy them. Stephanie Grisham is a destroyer, and in her memoir she seems to show no genuine remorse for the destruction that she caused,” Wolkoff, 50, wrote in Graydon Carter’s Air Mail Thursday.

In the piece, former FLOTUS senior adviser Wolkoff described Grisham, 45, as a “female Machiavelli with a penchant for Justin Bieber, whom she quotes at the start of one of the chapters in her book.”

Wolkoff wrote that Grisham “swooped in Melania Trump’s inner circle when I, a close friend and adviser to the first lady, was in the hospital recovering from back surgery, and helped lay the blame for a gross mismanagement of inauguration funds squarely on my back.”

Wolkoff also took issue with Grisham describing her as a “wealthy grifter from New York,” when she was, as she described it, “in charge of planning and running the Met Ball for more than a decade, and that it was Melania and Ivanka [Trump] who sought me out to help them, not the other way around.”

She also scoffed at Grisham’s assertion in the book that the former first lady speaks five languages, writing, “I can guarantee she does not.”

Wolkoff acknowledged that she penned her own Trump tome, and the “Justice Department sued me over my book about my experiences, ‘Melania and Me.’ (The case has since been dropped.)”

As for Grisham’s new book?

Trump, 51, issued a statement last month that said in part, “Like everyone else, she gets paid by a radical left-leaning publisher to say bad and untrue things.”
