Picture this scene as it played itself out one night at Aspen's Caribou Club, a week before Michael Kennedy's death dampened the mood of the ritzy resort town. In one of the private club's five rooms, Donald Trump chatted with a few friends while his first wife, Ivana, sat in another room with her new boyfriend, Ferrari importer Roffredo Gaetani d'Aragona. And, to complete the set, in a third room at the very same time, Donald's recently estranged second wife, Marla Maples, dined with their daughter Tiffany.
