A Playboy playmate who claims she had an affair with Donald Trump behind Melania’s back has apologized to the FLOTUS.
Asked by Anderson Cooper Thursday what she would say to Melania if she was watching, Karen McDougal said: ‘I am sorry.
‘I wouldn’t want it done to me. I am sorry.’
Asked just beforehand if she had any regrets about the alleged affair, which spanned 10 months in 2006, Karen said: ‘The only regret I have about the relationship is the fact that he was married.’
She had earlier told the CNN host how the fling began after Trump visited the Playboy Mansion to film a Celebrity Apprentice special.
Karen, whose claims are denied by the President, said she was then invited on a ‘date’ by Trump at the Beverly Hills Hotel, only to be smuggled in to a private bungalow where they ate dinner and had sex.
She said the couple had sex ‘many dozens’ of times, and never used any kind of protection. She added that the then-reality star even showed her around Trump Tower – but again shuttled her in via a back entrance.
Karen said she ended the affair with Trump after being eaten up by guilt about his marital status.
She is currently suing for the rights to tell her story after selling lifetime rights to the National Enquirer’s publisher in 2016, who never ran the story, amid claims they did so to protect the president.
Karen insisted the president was always ‘kind’ and ‘respectful’ – and even revealed that she voted for him in the 2016 presidential election
