In her new memoir, "Here's the Deal," the former Trump advisor wrote about the strain of her husband's blatant disapproval of her boss, according to an excerpt published in People Magazine. The two have remained married despite the turmoil of their relationship and the public attention from statements their daughter, Claudia made about them on social media.
Kellyanne, 55, said in her book — which is set to be released on May 24 — that her husband, an attorney, spent long periods of time in New York for work while she and the kids were in DC.
"During this time, the frequency and ferocity of his tweets accelerated. Clearly, he was cheating by tweeting," she wrote. "I was having a hard time competing with his new fling."
George Conway, 58, frequently used his platform to criticize Trump, who he'd introduced to Kellyanne Conway before later disapproving of his political stances and actions.
"Don't assume that the things he says and does are part of a rational plan or strategy, because they seldom are," George Conway tweeted once in 2019. "Consider them as a product of his pathologies, and they make perfect sense."
Trump, now banned from Twitter, responded: "George Conway, often referred to as Mr. Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is VERY jealous of his wife's success & angry that I, with her help, didn't give him the job he so desperately wanted."
Kellyanne Conway said Trump only mentioned George Conway to her a "handful" of times, three of which were in frustration.
Her memoir continued: "I had already said publicly what I'd said privately to George: that his daily deluge of insults-by-tweet against my boss — or, as he put it sometimes, 'the people in the White House' — violated our marriage vows to 'love, honor, and cherish each other."
George Conway had even written a 3,500-word essay countering Trump's claim that Robert S. Mueller III's Russia investigation was unconstitutional in 2018.
"On one side was my marriage and my husband. On the other was my job and my boss," Kellyanne Conway wrote. "George was mixing the two of them in a highly combustible manner. I was able to keep these things separate and in perspective. George should have, too, but it seemed the flood of reaction and attention he was receiving was magnetic and irresistible."
She added that Ivanka, Trump's daughter, had a similar issue with her husband, Jared Kushner. Ivanka recommended that the Conway couple try therapy, though Kellyanne Conway said her husband wasn't a fan of the idea. They never went.
"I feel there's a part of him that thinks I chose Donald Trump over him," Kellyanne Conway told The Washington Post. "Which is ridiculous. One is my work and one is my marriage."
The Post went on to describe their marriage as "emblematic" of the controversy around Trump — especially within the
"Whoop-de-do, George!" Kellyanne Conway wrote that she told George Conway once, according to her book. "You are one of millions of people who don't like the president. Congrats."
Neither George nor Kellyanne immediately responded to Insider's request for comment.
