In 2003, she was featured in
Born Rich, a documentary about the experience of growing up as a child in one of the world's most affluent families.
During an April 2006 appearance on
The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Trump said that she and former boyfriend Bingo Gubelmann had broken up, yet they remain good friends. Leno commented that he could hear her father's influence and inflections in her. David Letterman also made a similar comment when she appeared on Late Show with David Letterman on April 24, 2007.
Trump was a featured guest-judge on
Project Runway Season 3.
She was also at a
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, event in April 2007 called the Creating Wealth Summit in which she spoke for about 30 minutes about making money and her latest projects.
She has been offered to appear on
The Bachelorette, but she declined.

The Apprentice:
In 2006, she filled in for Carolyn Kepcher on five episodes of her father's television program The Apprentice 5, first appearing to help judge the Gillette task in week 2. Like Kepcher, Trump visited the site of the tasks and spoke to the teams, asking them pointed questions. She also evaluated contestants in the boardroom, pointing out critical errors and rebutting excuses they offered for losing the tasks. Though initially unsympathetic to the contestants, Trump later said,
"Whenever I see their breakdowns, I understand. They go virtually 24 hours a day, and each task takes about three days. Unless they win, they don’t get a day off... It’s an incredible amount of work..."

Trump now collaborates with season 5 winner
Sean Yazbeck on his winner's project of choice, Trump Soho Hotel-Condominium.
Trump replaced
Carolyn Kepcher as a primary boardroom judge during the Apprentice 6 and The Celebrity Apprentice.

In July 2009, after studying with Rabbi Elie Weinstock from
Ramaz School, Trump converted from Catholicism to Judaism, and took the name Yael. The beth din that converted her included Rabbi Haskel Lookstein. On October 25, 2009 she married Jared Kushner, owner of The New York Observer, in front of 500 guests at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
