Nobody is safe from Donald Trump’s rage, including Heidi Cruz, the wife of Donald’s Republican rival, Ted Cruz. Donald threatened to ‘spill the beans’ on Heidi, but who exactly is Ted’s better half? Here are 5 things to know about Heidi Cruz.
Voters are used to Donald Trump, 69, making crude insults against Ted Cruz, 45, but threatening Ted’s wife, Heidi Cruz, 43? That’s a new low, even for Donald. While Donald has promised to “spill the beans” on Ted’s wife, get to know the latest target of a Trump tirade.
1. Heidi is a highly successful businesswoman.
You would think Donald would have mad respect for Heidi since she has an eye for business, just like him. Heidi graduated from Harvard Business School in 2000 with a MBA. She’s also the head of the Southwest Region in the Investment Management Division of Goldman Sachs in Houston, Texas, according to the Daily Caller.
Donald might have some business dirt on Heidi. The ex-Celebrity Apprentice star threatened to “spill the beans” on Ted’s wife after an anti-Trump Super PAC posted Facebook ads that mocked Donald’s wife, Melania Trump. 45.
2. She also has some major political experience!
Heidi could easily pull a Hillary Clinton, 68, and run for office herself. Heidi worked on George W. Bush’s presidential campaign in 2000, and was the director of the Western Hemisphere at the National Security Council from 2003 to 2004, according to Heavy.com.
3. George W. Bush helped hook Ted and Heidi up.
Heidi met Ted when they both worked for George W., according to the Washington Times. Ted and Heidi’s first date took place at an Austin bar called The Bitter End. They talked for hours and Heidi recalled, “It was certainly a very warm, lively, mutual conversation, and I was intrigued [that] he asked such insightful, deep questions.” They were married in 2001.
Lyin' Ted Cruz just used a picture of Melania from a G.Q. shoot in his ad. Be careful, Lyin' Ted, or I will spill the beans on your wife!

4. Heidi’s a deeply spiritual person.
Heidi’s was born into a family of Seventh-day Adventists who did missionary work in Africa, according to The New York Times. Heidi would travel with her parents to places like Nigeria. While speaking at her alma mater in 2009, Heidi said, “it’s ingrained in our family that life is about giving back.”
5. She has struggled with depression.
When Heidi gave up her White House job in 2005, per Buzzfeed News, the transition to her life in Houston was hard on her. In Sep. 2005, she was found sitting near a freeway with her head in her hands. A redacted police report says she wasn’t intoxicated, but the officer believed Heidi was “a danger to herself.” Heidi used “prayer, Christian counseling and the love and support of her husband and family,” to overcome her depression.
What do you think Donald meant when he said he’d “spill the beans” on Heidi, HollywoodLifers?
