Entertainment Tonight’s Nancy O’Dell Addresses, On Air, Audio of Trump Talking About Her

nancy-odellDuring today’s edition of Entertainment Tonight, anchor Nancy O’Dell addressed Donald Trump‘s comments about her in that leaked audio.

In that audio, Trump referred to a married woman who rebuffed his advances and had, in Trump’s words, “phony tits.” He was talking about O’Dell, who at the time co-hosted Access Hollywood with the man who listened to Trump say all these things, Billy Bush.

O’Dell started off today’s show by saying, “I felt it’s very important that I address you all directly.”

She continued:

“By now, I’m sure that most of you have heard the audio tape which became national news and part of the presidential race. My name was mentioned and, unfortunately, the release of it has thrown me into the middle of the political arena of which I didn’t ask to be a part.”

O’Dell concluded, “There is no room for objectification of women, or anybody for that matter, not even in the locker room.'”

UPDATE –– 9:08 pm ET: O’Dell continued:

The conversation has got to change because everybody deserves respect, no matter the gender or setting. And as a mom, I have to add that our kids, especially our young girls, need to know that their hard work, their achievements, their intelligence, their heart are most important, and those things will not go unnoticed.

Watch above, via ET.
