Using a teaser clip of CNN's Anderson Cooper's interview with former playmate Karen McDougal explaining her sexual relationship with a Donald Trump, the CNN host relayed that she told him she has diary entries and photos that will prove their 15-month-affair actually happened.


Speaking with CNN host Wolf Blitzer, Cooper teased out some details from his interview with McDougal to be broadcast Thursday night.

"What did she tell you, just a little while ago, about her encounter with Mr. Trump?" Blitzer asked.

"Well, it was far more than just one encounter," Cooper recalled. "She says this was a relationship that went on for well over a year. I think she said, about 15 months or so, and she has diaries in which she marked the days that she spent or saw him or the evenings that she spent with Donald Trump. She would put a 'DT' at the bottom of each diary entry."

"There's also photographs of her with Donald Trump -- even a photograph of her with Donald Trump, Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump at an event, an 'Apprentice'-related event at the Playboy mansion," he explained.

"She says this went on and she had multiple sexual encounters, dozens and dozens of sexual encounters with Donald Trump over the course of their relationship," he added. "She said it was a real relationship; that she loved him, that he loved her. I asked her about the first time that they actually had a date after they met at the Playboy mansion. They talked, according to her, on the phone for several days after Mr. Trump had asked for her number."

"After we had been intimate, he tried to pay me, and I actually didn't know how to take that," McDougal told the CNN host.

When Cooper asked if Trump tried to hand her money, McDougal said, "He did."

"I don't even know how to describe the look on my face," she said. "It must have been so sad."
