HERE is a look inside Kellyanne Conway’s family scandal, from fears for her daughter Claudia’s fame to her husband George’s alleged tweets ruining their marriage.
Kellyanne Conway, who once served under Donald Trump’s administration, has been married to DC-based attorney George Conway since 2001.
During their marriage, Kellyanne and George had four children together: Claudia, George IV, Charlotte and Vanessa.
And now, Kellyanne’s new memoir – Here’s The Deal, which was released this month – has given us a glimpse into her family’s life.
Fear is about Claudia’s fame
In Kellyanne’s memoir, the mother-of-four opened up about how her teenage daughter found fame by a New York Times reporter, according to the New York Post.
The reporter had compiled her daughter’s anti-Trump TikTok posts and shared them on Twitter.
Referring to the reporter’s hundred thousand followers, Kellyanne writes, “Each of you could now be going through the day-to-day details of my teenage daughter’s life and any thoughts and emotions that may have been actively running through her mind.”
The incident prompted Claudia to garner a huge surge in followers, which her mother explains in her memoir as “every teenage girl’s dream on social media, but her parents’ nightmare.”
She writes that she felt “terror for Claudia’s safety,” adding, “Instant fame, I know, brings instant chaos.”
Despite Kellyanne’s fears about her daughter’s newfound fame, Claudia was happy she was “trendy”.
“George left me for Twitter”
Also in Kellyanne’s new memoir, she opens up about a shocking anti-Trump tweet shared by her husband in 2017.
To her surprise, she first learned about the tweet at the White House when Sean Spicer brought it to her attention.
George took to Twitter to say: “These tweets might make some people feel better, but they certainly won’t help OSG get 5 votes in SCOTUS, which actually counts. Sad.”
According to The Post, Kellyanne writes about how the incident made her feel in Here’s the Deal.
“For the first time since George and I got serious, I considered the possibility that the man who has always stood behind me might one day stab me in the knife,” writes the American political adviser.
Two years later, Kellyanne confronted her husband about other anti-Trump tweets he shared.
During their conversation, George told her, “You ruined yourself and embarrassed this family.”
According to her memoir, Kellyanne replied, “I embarrassed this family?
“You left me for Twitter and she’s not even hot.”
The Sun reached out to George Conway for comment but received no immediate response.
Last year, Claudia claimed her mother had filed for a divorce from George, but decided to “put on a show.”
The teen made the claims in a documentary she linked in her TikTok bio in March 2021.
The hour-long video, uploaded in February 2021, contained clips from Claudia’s TikTok Lives from August 2020.
In a recorded live video that appears to date from the summer of 2020, Claudia refined her hopes of being emancipated from her parents before dropping the bombshell claim.
She said: “Hopefully I’ll be successful but the odds against me don’t look too good.
“And they filed for divorce, my mom finally did it — tried to finalize things, but I think they put on this whole show for the public and the media,” Claudia claimed.
The couple ultimately didn’t file for divorce, stayed together and were even seen supporting Claudia during her American Idol audition in 2021.
Claudia has not spoken about her parents or their alleged divorce plans since.
Claudia’s “dubious” relationship with Kellyanne
Also in 2021, Claudia revealed that her relationship with her mother, Kellyanne, was “doubtful” during her emotional American Idol debut, as she admitted the internet is a “dark place.”
Conway’s comments came after she accused her mother of allegedly posting a nude picture of her that aired during an episode of American Idol weeks before her audition.
“It’s a lot, but I just want to spread love and I’ll agree to a compromise,” Claudia told host Katy Perry. “I had to move to Washington DC and I hated it.”
Then, when the singer asked if her mother, Kellyanne — a former adviser to Donald Trump — gave her a hug after all the public drama, Claudia replied, “Yes, but our relationship is in doubt.”
“The internet can be a dark place,” continued the teen, who recently revealed her mental health struggles. “When life goes downhill, I have my music.
“I want to get out of the controversy and drama,” added Claudia.
