In an explosive TV interview, brunette Karen McDougal breathlessly dropped a dozen bombshells which must have left Trump's camp reeling - she confessed: Internet Unknown In an exclusive interview with CNN , a slick Karen contritely admitted to trying to sell her story before the Republican was even announced as the president elect - it was later bought up by National Enquirer but never ran.
Karen is now suing and, it appears, is ready to tell her story. She said her affair with Trump began in and ran for ten months with secret meetings - she alleges the wispy haired entrepreneur gunned for her after spotting her at a bash. Karen is determined to have her say Image: She actually made a comment like, wow, this guy is really into you. And that's kind of when I started like paying attention. And then at the end of the night, you know, after striking up many conversations, we exchanged -- he actually asked me to write his phone -- my phone number down for him to keep.
I think we talked for about a week on the phone before his next visit to L. And that was his birthday which I think is June 12th. So, he had told me that Keith, his bodyguard, was going to pick me up at a certain time and he did. Playmate Karen McDougal two years after she ended the affair Image: FilmMagic Karen said she was sorry to Melania Image: And [Trump's driver] Keith drove around to the back and he said, we have to get out here, because we don't want to walk to the hotel.
And at that minute, I'm like thinking to myself, are we going to a room because I thought we were having dinner at the Beverly Hills Hotel. And in fact, every time that I met him there, it was the same exact bungalow. And he's called it the nicest bungalow they have. So, I guess that's why he chose that one. But that's where we went every time. And I actually didn't know how to take that.
I don't even know how to describe the look on my face must have been so sad, because I had never been offered money like that before, number one. But number two, I thought, does he think I'm in this for money or why I'm here tonight? Or is this a normal thing? I'm not that kind of girl. And he said, oh, and he said, you're really special, and I was like, thank you.
So, I left, actually, got in the car. Keith taking me home and I started crying. I was really sad. It really hurt me. But I went back. He was starting to and then he's like, I don't like these things. And you know, we discussed things.
Did you do, blah, blah. We were just honest with each other and we didn't use any. And that's only time I can remember, when he said she was an intelligent woman. She knew like, I don't know, four or five languages. But other than that, he never talked about his wife, and I never brought it up.

Now Karen, who said her lawyer at the time, Keith Davidson, secretly negotiated with Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen on the magazine deal, wants to be free to tell her side of the story.
Cohen has acknowledged arranging to pay Daniels for her silence during the presidential campaign. She is asking the court to declare the agreement null and void, saying she was tricked into signing it, that it was intended to illegally influence the election and because it violates public policy against using threats of legal action to get someone to stay silent on issues of public concern.
Addressing Melania, McDougal said: I wouldn't want it done to me. FilmMagic, Inc Earlier this week, McDougal sued seeking to be released from a gagging order over the alleged affair.
McDougal's lawsuit came on the same day that a New York state judge ruled Trump must face a defamation suit by California restaurateur Summer Zervos, who accused him of sexually harassing her after she appeared on his former reality TV show "The Apprentice. It said she has been free to respond to press inquiries about her relationship with Trump since and that the suggestion that AMI silenced her is without merit.
I just want the opportunity to set the record straight and move on with my life, free from this company, its executives, and its lawyers," McDougal, who was Playboy magazine's Playmate of the Year, said in a statement.
Davidson declined to comment, citing attorney-client privilege. Cohen did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, sued the president on March 6, stating Trump never signed an agreement for her to keep her quiet about an "intimate" relationship between them.
