First Lady of the United States Melania Trump is reportedly in talks to release a tell-all memoir after leaving the White House.

Democrat Joe Biden won the US Election in early November after gaining 306 electoral college votes, more than the 270 majority needed to win the presidency.

Unless incumbent President Donald Trump's legal efforts can overturn the decision, he'll leave the White House along with his wife and children in January, before Biden's inauguration.

On Saturday, sources revealed to Page 6 that Melania is considering her first move after they leave.

"Melania is in meetings to write her White House memoir," one source told the news outlet. "It would be her money - a chance for her to earn on her own."

Melania would be following in the footsteps of previous First Lady Michelle Obama who released her memoir Becoming in 2018, two years after her time in the White House.

The sources also believe Trump is on board.

"I'm told her husband is encouraging her (to pen the book)," they said, Page Six reported. 

"She's not done, or going as quietly as you might expect." 

The memoir would come after Melania's former friend and advisor Stephanie Winston Wolkoff released her own tell-all Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship With the First Lady which gave an unfavourable glimpse into the mechanics of the Trump family.

One particularly notable excerpt describes Melania's surprising reaction to the infamous Access Hollywood tape, in which her husband was secretly recorded making lewd comments about women.

"Now if any other human being or any other one of my friends [had gone through this], I would have expected to see them in tears, right?" Winston Wolkoff said.

"[But] she was smiling. It was as if nothing had happened. And I swear to you, I had like a glitch in my brain; I was like, 'Is this really happening at this moment? Is it surreal that her husband just came out and said these horrible things?'"

In other parts of the book, Winston Wolkoff alleges Donald Trump has been preparing his daughter Ivanka to become the next US President and Melania Trump is complicit.

However, Melania blasted Wolkoff in an essay last month published on the White House Web site, calling her a "dishonest opportunist" who "clung" to Melania for fame. 

The source told Page 6 that "in the wake of Stephanie Winston Wolkoff's betrayal, in both print and on secret tapes, Melania's story could be worth big money".
