Who is Karen McDougal? Trump’s Playmate Alleged Affair All you need to know
Stormy Daniels now has some company in the allegedly-had-an-affair-with-President-Donald-Trump–while-he-was-married-to-Melania club. As revealed in an explosive feature in The New Yorker, model/Playmate/actress Karen McDougal alleges to have had numerous consensual sexual encounters with Trump, beginning in 2006 at the Playboy mansion (Trump married Melania in 2005, their son Barron was born in 2006). That’s somehow not the most scandalous part of the piece, though; the bulk of the piece details the extensive cover-up that followed to ensure that McDougal’s story as well as a years-old eight-page hand-written note about the affair remained buried.
But who is Karen McDougal?
If you were a Playboy subscriber in the late ’90s, you are probably more than familiar with her body of work. She was Playmate of the Month in December 1997 and Playmate of the Year in 1998. And then Playboy readers named her the second sexiest Playmate of the ’90s (after Pamela Anderson).
It’s been almost a year since I shot the #Muscle&FitnessHers #cover. It’s a painful memory for me tho..it was 2 weeks before my #life-saving #surgery …I was terribly sick (I hadn’t worked out in months…and I was bed ridden at the time. Minus the couple of “good days” I had per month. Thank GOD I had a “good day” that day. Even then …I felt dizzy and awful..but I was at least able to function!! I longed for those days!!) So…my throw back Tuesday is to #HEALTH …without it, we truly have NOTHING! #breastimplantillness #BII #implants = #explant 🙌🏼🙏🏼🙌🏼 @muscleandfitnesshers Here’s to Shawn …who passed away (he helped make the shoot as comfortable as possible for me)..R.I.P. photographer Dustin Snipes.

Following her stint as a Playmate, Karen McDougal —which, we should state, is not spelled Karen Macdougall— turned to fitness modeling and even picked up a few acting and hosting gigs on TV. She had an uncredited role in the Charlie’s Angels movie in 2000, and appeared on the short-lived ABC sitcom Jake in Progress in 2005 as “Hot Model.” More recently she played a character named Shelly in a 2013 episode of the Charlie Sheen show Anger Management.
