The former Miss Universe who blasted Donald Trump for making insensitive remarks about her weight and ethnicity clearly had no issue problem taking shots at the looks and speaking ability of the wife of the Republican Presidential candidate, Melania Trump.

The beauty queen who won the 1996 Miss Universe pageant, Alicia Machado, appeared in the middle of a spat between Republican presidential nominee Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton after Clinton said during Monday’s debate that Trump had called Machado “Miss Piggy” twenty years ago because of her weight gain.

Machado instantly Tweeted in Spanish: “Thank you, Mrs. Clinton. Your respect for women and our differences make you great! I’m with you!”

In an interview on Tuesday with Cosmopolitan, Machado took a different tone when asked about Melania Trump, who, like Machado, was an immigrant and a former model.

“I think I speak more English than her,” Machado, a native of Venezuela, stated about Melania Trump. “I don’t see anything about this girl. She’s a doll. She’s a decoration. That is how I see her.”

The woman has consistently been in the spotlight this week as viewers observed a lot more of the ex-Miss Universe when The Sun released a video on Thursday showing her having sex with a male contestant on a Spanish reality show back in 2005.

While on the “Big Brother” like show, “The Farm,” Machado was shown on night vision cameras having sex with a male co-star and using strong language to describe their explicit encounter. Machado was engaged to then-Philadelphia Phillies star Bobby Abreu at the time of the incident, and the couple soon parted ways.

“It was a very strong experience, very difficult in all senses, and I feel very happy with the events in Spain,” she said in an interview with Univision after the show concluded. “I had people’s support once more, and I gained respect for what I am as a person, and that was the purpose.”

Footage of Trump and Machado has also surfaced discussing Machado’s weight back in 1997, a web link to which was tweeted a Washington Post reporter on Wednesday. Toward the end of the video, Trump makes fun of the physical appearance of several journalists, to which Machado giggles and gives him a thumbs up.

The most recent discoveries about Machado’s history come after reports that a Venezuelan judge once accused her of threatening to murder him after he charged her ex-boyfriend with attempted murder.

Judge Maximiliano Fuenmayor said in the late-1990s that Machado threatened “to ruin my career as a judge and … kill me.”

Her boyfriend at the time, Juan Rafael Rodriguez Regetti, was indicted for his role in the shooting of his sister’s husband, who he blamed for his sister’s suicide.

Francisco Antonio Sbert Mousko was wounded outside of a church in Caracas where his wife, Rodriguez’s sister, was being eulogized. Sbert reportedly suffered brain damage from the assault.

The victim’s relatives accused Machado of driving the suspect’s getaway vehicle, but she refused to admit that she had any involvement and was never indicted due to lack of evidence.

As JammedUp News reported, Machado had a child with a ruthless drug lord wanted by U.S. authorities who currently remains incarcerated in Mexico.

The former Beauty Queen is alleged to have had a love affair with Jose Gerardo “El Indio” Alvarez, alias “El Indio,” or “The Indian,” a top capo with the Beltran Leyva Drug Cartel.

Although Machado has denied the allegations, multiple Mexican new outlets reported Machado had a love affair Gerardo Alvarez who is believed to have fathered Machado’s daughter.
