A former contestant on Donald Trump's reality show "The Apprentice" came forward on Oct. 14 with allegations that Trump molested her in 2007.
Summer Zervos told reporters that she met with the GOP nominee at a Beverly Hills hotel the year after she appeared in the 2006 season of "The Apprentice," according to WJLA. She had reportedly contacted him about a job at the time and intended to meet him for dinner.
"[Trump] came to me and started kissing me open-mouthed as he was pulling me towards him," she recounted of their exchange, which she said occurred shortly after she arrived. "I walked away and I sat down on a chair ... He then asked me to sit next to him. I complied, and he then grabbed my shoulder and began kissing me again very aggressively and placed his hand on my breast."
She explained that she then got up and walked away, when Trump grabbed her hand and led her to the bedroom. Zervos then walked away and Trump suggested that they "lay down and watch some telly-telly," she recalled.
"He put me in an embrace and I tried to push him away," Zervos said. "I pushed his chest to put space between us, and I said, 'Come on, man, get real.' He repeated my words back to me -- 'get reeeal' -- as he began thrusting his genitals. He tried to kiss me again, and with my hand still on his chest, I said, 'Dude, you're tripping right now.'"
When she prepared to leave, Trump kissed her again on the lips, she said.
"This made me feel nervous and embarrassed," explained Zervos. This is not what I wanted or expected."
Trump responded to Zervos' accusations, denying them as he has several others.
"I vaguely remember Ms. Zervos as one of the many contestants on The Apprentice over the years," he said. "To be clear, I never met her at a hotel or greeted her inappropriately a decade ago. That is not who I am as a person, and it is not how I've conducted my life. In fact, Ms. Zervos continued to contact me for help, emailing my office on April 14th of this year asking that I visit her restaurant in California."
Another woman, 46-year-old photographer Kristin Anderson, told CNN on Oct. 14 that Trump put his hand up her skirt in a nightclub in the early 1990s.
