Stormy Daniels finally reveals the truth about her 'Celebrity Big Brother' no-show
Stormy Daniels has finally lifted the lid on why she never appeared in 'Celebrity Big Brother' despite being part of the show's advertising campaign.
The former adult actress was due to appear on Loose Women on Friday to discuss her absence, but had to pull out last minute due to what was being described as a "legal situation."
However, Stormy did manage to do a pre-recorded interview with the show and it was given the green light to air on Monday's episode. In the interview, Stormy revealed what went on before she decided to pull the plug on the reality show.
She revealed that, although she had initially signed up for the whole series, she later had to renegotiate her contract to just a week, due to the on-going legal dispute that she is currently embroiled with against President Donald Trump, who Stormy claims to have had an affair with in 2006.
“When I initially was approached about doing ‘Big Brother’ - full disclosure - I didn’t really know what I was getting myself in to. I’d never seen the show,” she said. “They offered me a lot of money and it was very tempting and then… it’s just crazy, the initial offer.
"Then I realised there's no way I can make that long of a commitment because of the ongoing litigation with Trump and [Michael] Cohen and all that stuff. So the deal with re-negotiated to a week for a substantially smaller sum than is being reported."
Stormy, who is in the midst of a divorce and custody agreement regarding her seven-year-old daughter, claims that she wanted to come to an agreement with the producers of Big Brother that would allow her to appear on the launch show to apologise to viewers about her not entering the house.
“I got word there was a development in my custody case, was very honest, which I guess was my mistake – I told the truth – to the producers that I was uncomfortable spending the night in the house,” she said.
“Being a mum comes first and I wanted to be able to talk to her with everything going on. But I wanted to work with them.”
She continued: “Instead, they did not want me to go on the live show, said that if I would come in the next morning, that I could then explain myself [with a Diary Room entry] and they would give my day rate to a charity. We were going to work out the details of all that later. All happy, had a deal, came to a great agreement, was going to be great for both of us.”
But after being asked what happened after that, Stormy said: “That’s the good question. We agreed to that, the live show started, I stayed at the hotel. They came back a couple of hours later and said, ‘You’re either going to go on and stay in the house, follow the contract to a ‘T’ or we’re deporting you in the morning at 6am’. They said, ‘You have to leave and we have to put you on a plane back to your port of origin, you have to leave the country.’”
While Stormy has now given her version of events, Channel 5 have disputed the accusations made in the interview.
A spokesperson said: “Stormy Daniels was booked to appear on the show several months ago. Hours before the show was due to go live, informed the production team that she no longer wished to enter the house as previously agreed.
“Producers discussed a variety of options with her but were unable to agree on any acceptable conditions for her to enter the house. Reports that Stormy asked for more money are completely false. Our focus is now on making a brilliant series with our fantastic celebrities.”
During her interview with Loose Women, Stormy said her appearance on the reality series was never about money and that she would've given her earnings to charity. Speaking about her life now, she says that she wants nothing more than a life of anonymity, following the legal case with Trump.
Asked if she had any regrets, she said: “I would never go to Lake Tahoe [where she alleges she met Trump]. I would actually stay off of all golf courses forever, because you never know what happens.
″[I hope] that someday, in the future, my daughter looks up to me and says, ‘I’m so proud of how brave you were’. And on a very selfish note, that people forget who I am entirely and I live on a horse farm in the middle of nowhere where no one wants to take a picture of me.”
Finally, asked what her opinions on Trump are now, she added: “I think that he is a man that’s gotten in over his head.”
‘Loose Women’ airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
