Best Wishes

‘DESPITE their obvious love for one another and bejewelled hand-in-glove compatibility, newlyweds Melania Knauss and Donald Trump might not make it.

And so we have Alex in a pair of brown cowboy boots, green dress and what for all intents and purposes looks like a huge furry tongue tied around her neck. Perhaps kissing it reminds her of being with George?

But since finding her former husband in bed with another woman – ”It just goes to show what they say about leopards not changing their spots” – Alex has been spreading her wings.

She’s dated Howard Kruger, glamour mod-el Jordan’s uncle, and for the past two months has been stepping out with Crystal Palace football club chairman, Simon Jordan.

”One day I’d like to be married again, to the most gorgeous man, and have three wonderful children, a house in the country and a penthouse in town so I can go shopping,” says Alex of her plans.

But in the meantime, a good divorce settlement from husband No. 1 will keep her on track…’
