The first lady of the United States seems to have a love-hate relationship with the limelight. Melania Trump has stayed far away from the media after her husband President Donald Trump was sworn in on Jan. 20. Instead of moving with him to Washington, D.C., the new first family has receded to the privacy of their $100 million penthouse on the 64th floor of Trump Tower in New York City.

Melania suddenly reappeared this weekend to enjoy Super Bowl celebrations at the first family’s luxurious Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida, before quietly disappearing again on Monday, along with her 10-year-old son, Barron Trump. It’s unclear whether the two have flown back to their hometown of Manhattan just yet, but the first lady seems to be making it clear that she has no intention of moving into the White House just yet.

While Barron is continuing his private school education in the city's upper west side, the first lady is focusing her efforts on refiling her lawsuit for the third time against Mail Media, the owners of Daily Mail. Her lawyer filed the latest suit with the New York State Supreme Court on Monday, demanding $150 million for the first lady, writing Trump lost a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity" to garner "multimillion dollar business relationships" due to a Daily Mail article purporting her to be an escort. Trump's lawyers alleged the article even tarnished her ability to "launch a broad-based commercial brand."

But on Sunday, it was all-smiles as the president and first lady joined each other at their Florida estate, if only for a few days. The White House has previously asked for privacy as Trump’s son completes his year of schooling and the first family continues temporarily living in New York, though recent reports indicate Melania will "reevaluate" her living situation at a later date.

It remains unclear when, if ever, Melania and Barron will move to Washington, D.C., though first daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, a White House adviser, have already made the journey to be closer to Trump, who currently lives alone in his presidential quarters.

The separation doesn’t seem to bother Trump much –- at least for the time being. Unlike Obama, who paused most White House operations during the nighttime for dinner with his family, Trump has been extending his work hours well into the evening, fundamentally transforming the president’s daily schedule.

Meanwhile, Melania hasn’t exactly reestablished the office of the first lady just yet. She has, however, hired longtime New York fashion insider and former Vogue Director Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who will serve as her chief strategist. Both are reportedly remaining in New York for the time being.
