The White House on Monday cast aspersions on adult-film star Stormy Daniels over a much-watched TV interview in which she said she was threatened with violence to keep quiet about an alleged sexual encounter with Donald Trump in 2006.

Wood noticed that the President is facing fully towards the camera, so if you cut her out it wouldn't affect him.

Melania Trump has not commented on Daniels' interview, but her spokesperson tweeted a response to the interview and called it "speculation & salacious gossip".

Asked if Daniels' club stops would include talk of politics or the president, her manager, Gina Rodriguez, told the Dallas Morning News, "If Stormy was going to do interviews they would NEVER take place in a strip club".

Leading into that, "60 Minutes" said that in May 2011, Daniels agreed to sell the Donald Trump affair story to InTouch magazine for $15,000 dollars, that the story was squashed because Cohen threatened to sue and that two weeks later she was threatened in Vegas.

Daniels said that before they had sex Trump had broached the idea of her being a contestant on "The Apprentice", and she likened it to a "business opportunity".

Ms. Clifford, on the other hand, represented herself as having no illusions about herself or Mr. Trump. "It'd be a shame if something happened to her mom, ' and then he was gone", she said.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has continued to appear at clubs like Blush, which is located Downtown, while at the center of a scandal involving her alleged affair with Trump in 2006, an alleged $130,000 hush money payment from a Trump lawyer and threats that she'd be financially ruined if her public discussions of the alleged affair continued.

Avenatti countered: "It had to have come from someone associated with Mr. Trump, there is no other place for it to have come from".

In the letter, obtained by CNN, Cohen attorney Blakely told Daniels' attorney Avenatti that his client had nothing to do with the alleged threat in the parking lot. When a critic on Twitter told her that "dumb whores go to hell", she shot back, "Glad I'm a smart one".

Mr Shah was then asked about why Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen had paid Stormy $130,000 11 days before the 2016 presidential election.

Daniels' told "60 Minutes" on Sunday that she felt she had "no choice" but to sign the statements because of the nondisclosure agreement she had signed.

"He doesn't believe she was threatened?" the reporter followed up.

Now the amended complaint explicitly names Cohen, accusing the longtime Trump attorney of defamation after he insinuated she lied about a decade-old affair with the president.

Davidson, now Daniels' former attorney, said in a statement that he could not speak publicly until Daniels waived attorney-client privilege, but that he looked forward to correcting the record soon.

McDougal has filed suit in Los Angeles seeking to invalidate a confidentiality agreement with American Media Inc., the company that owns the supermarket tabloid National Enquirer.

In March 1999, when Barbara Walters interviewed Monica Lewinsky on "20/20" about her affair with President Bill Clinton, an average of 48.5 million viewers tuned in, according to Deadline.

The lawsuit alleges that McDougal was paid for the rights to her story of an affair, but the story never ran.
