A lot of girls would do that to take a vacation and not pay for a hotel. It was always happening here, but it was a lot more crazy in LA than in Lake Geneva. We were able to buy it and I thought, wow, she gives this money back and their kids are going to school, they are going to doctors, they are putting food on the table.
PE: There were quite a few seasonal and summer girls would do it in between college.
For Mc Dougal, who grew up in a small town in Michigan and worked as a preschool teacher before beginning her modelling career, such advances were not unusual. Summer Zervos, a former contestant on “The Apprentice,” alleged that Trump assaulted her at a private dinner meeting, in December of 2007, at a bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
When I finished, I thought, I’m really chatty, I’m very social, and I’m watching for forest fires alone in a tower? I was also homesick, so I went back to where my father had just been transferred, Wauwatosa (Wisconsin). PE: For a couple of years, you didn’t even need a car.
I met a girl in Wauwatosa, who said, ‘I used to be a Bunny in Chicago, how about we go down to Lake Geneva and apply.’ So, we did. You could just pick up the phone and call and a car would come for you to go to work.
John Crawford, Mc Dougal’s friend, who also helped broker her deal with A. I., said that Trump was “another powerful guy hitting on her, a gal who’s paid to be at work.” Trump and Mc Dougal began talking frequently on the phone, and soon had what Mc Dougal described as their first date: dinner in a private bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Trump, Zervos has claimed, kissed her, groped her breast, and suggested that they lie down to “watch some telly-telly.” After Zervos rebuffed Trump’s advances, she said that he “began thrusting his genitals” against her.
(Zervos recently sued Trump for defamation after he denied her account.) All three women say that they were escorted to a bungalow at the hotel by a Trump bodyguard, whom two of the women have identified as Keith Schiller.
Mc Dougal later wrote that Trump “immediately took a liking to me, kept talking to me - telling me how beautiful I was, etc. I.’s promises largely went unfulfilled, according to Mc Dougal. Mc Dougal, in her first on-the-record comments about A. I.’s handling of her story, declined to discuss the details of her relationship with Trump, for fear of violating the agreement she reached with the company.
