The former BFF of First Daughter Ivanka Trump had a lot to say about studying with her in school. The woman who claims to be Ivanka's ex-best friend wrote an explosive article in Vanity Fair where she had described Ivanka's 'bratty' behavior in high school, including blaming others in order to get herself out of trouble. Ivanka would also reportedly make very snobbish remarks in private.

38-year-old Lysandra Ohrstrom, a journalist for The Observer and Huffington Post, attended Chapin, which is an all-girls private school on the Upper East Side of Manhattan with Ivanka as a teenager. She had also been one of the two 'maids of honor' of Ivanka when she married Jared Kushner. Ohrstrom revealed that the two had been close until immediately after the wedding after which their friendship deteriorated. She shared that the two then shared a then distant but polite friendship. Ohrstrom is now speaking out and has got candid on who her former BFF really is.

She shared that Ivanka was charming as a teenager and would win over adults making them believe that she had shaken off her father Donald Trump's crass behavior but in private was equally obsessed with money and struggled to keep it hidden.

Ivanka had once reportedly said, "Why would you tell me to read a book about f*****g poor people?" Ohrstrom revealed speaking about one incident when she recommended a novel about a diner manager. Ivanka had also allegedly said, "since when can a teacher afford a BMW?" and "why is a police officer living in a house like that?" when the two were watching movies.

Ohrstrom added that Ivanka was the one who would coax other girls into bad and inappropriate behavior which included flashing their breasts at 'the hot dog man' from the windows of their school and would talk herself out of trouble if they would get caught. "One of the earliest memories I have of Ivanka from before we were friends is when she blamed a fart on a classmate. Some time later, she goaded me and a few other girls into flashing our breasts out the window of our classroom in what has since been labeled the 'flashing the hot dog man' incident in Chapin lore. Ivanka had basically been the ringleader, but she pleaded her innocence to the headmistress and got off scot-free. The rest of us were suspended," Ohrstrom claimed.

She also says she spent time with POTUS Trump who asked her if Ivanka was the 'prettiest' girl in their grade and was stunned when she said no. "Before I learned that the Trumps have no sense of humor about themselves, I remember answering honestly that she was probably in the top five," Lysandra added. She recalled another incident that had taken place at Mar-a-Lago when Donald Trump Jr had snatched half of a grilled cheese from her plate. "Ivanka scolded him, but Mr Trump chimed in, 'Don’t worry. She doesn’t need it. He’s doing her a favor.' Conversely, he’d usually congratulate me if I’d lost weight," she added. 

Ohrstrom recalled yet another incident when Ivanka told her she 'hated' a necklace she wore which had her name in Arabic and had even said to her, "How does your Jewish boyfriend feel when you are having sex and that necklace hits him the face? How can you wear that thing? It just screams, 'terrorist'."

The pair's friendship had ended when she had complained that Ivanka had taken no interest in her new job and Ivanka had said to her "Ly, I’m too busy for this s**t."
