CNN Ventures to Strip Club For Stormy Daniels Performance: Attention I’m Getting ‘Is a Double-Edged Sword’


CNN dispatched a camera crew to Stormy Daniels’ first live performance since she filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump claiming the nondisclosure agreement she signed to keep quiet about their alleged affair is invalid because he never signed it.

Daniels, a porn star who regularly makes appearances at strip clubs across the country, was in Fort Lauderdale, Florida Friday night to perform at the Solid Gold gentleman’s club.

CNN correspondent Nick Valencia appeared on New Day the morning after Stormy’s show to report that she performed in front of about 200 people, and gave an interview during a meet and greet afterwards.

Daniels avoided questions about her lawsuit, but told Valencia about how her newfound fame has affected her.

“It’s sort of a double-edged sword,” Daniels said, explaining that while before she only danced once a month, she is getting far more bookings now.

“But because of that, it’s sort of overshadowing a lot of adult films that I’m supposed to be promoting, and a lot of the mainstream projects that I was actively working on have indefinitely put on hold.”

While Solid Gold had previously advertised that Stormy’s performance would be accompanied by an auction of a dress the porn star wore during her alleged affair with Trump, any mention of the auction was taken down before the event. Stormy’s lawyers pushed back hard on the idea, telling the Miami Herald that an auction was definitely not happening.

The appearance comes after it was reported that Trump lawyer Michael Cohen used his professional Trump Organization email address to correspond with Daniels about her NDA.
