Nancy O’Dell Addresses Trump Tape on Entertainment Tonight: ‘I Didn’t Ask to Be a Part’ of This Story


While her former Access Hollywood co-host Billy Bush's Today career may be over, Nancy O'Dell returned to work on Monday's Entertainment Tonight, addressing the lewd remarks made about her by Bush and Donald Trump in a 2005 tape that was recently leaked. "As a journalist for 26 years now, it is my job to bring you news about others, rather than turning the focus on myself, but by now I'm sure most of you have heard the audiotape," O'Dell said. In it, Trump describes his rebuffed attempts to have sex with O'Dell, with both Trump and Bush dissecting her appearance. O'Dell continued, "The release of [the video] has thrown me into the middle of the political arena of which I didn't ask to be a part." She also reemphasized the sentiment of her initial statement, saying, "There is no room for objection of women or anyone for that matter, not even in the locker room." Watch above.
