Stormy Daniels says fame from Trump scandal is a 'double-edged sword' for her career

Stormy Daniels, the porn star who claims she had an affair with President Trump, says her newfound fame has been a “double-edged sword” for her career.

“I’m getting more dance bookings… Now I’m dancing three or four times a month so that’s been really great,” she told CNN Friday night after her performance at the Solid Gold gentleman’s club in Florida. “But because of that, it’s sort of overshadowing a lot of the adult films that I’m supposed to be promoting, and a lot of the mainstream projects that I was actively working on have been indefinitely put on hold.”

Daniels has been speaking out in the past few days after she avoided talking to the media amid the unfolding controversy over a payment of $130,000 in alleged hush money to her from Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen.

She sat down for an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, which included revelations such as her “safe word,” which she said is “penguin.” She also admitted to “capitalizing” on her fame.

She filed a lawsuit Tuesday against Trump, saying a “hush” agreement she signed was invalid because Trump never signed it.

“I have two choices,” she told Rolling Stone. “Sit at home and feel sorry for myself, or make lemonade out of lemons.”

Of the negative attention, she told CNN she has “really tough skin” after being in the adult business for 17 years.

“There’s nothing that anyone can say that I haven’t heard,” she said.  “So, they say “hey, you’re a whore…” I’m like, “That’s a successful whore to you!”

One thing gets to her, though. The “flat out lies,” like the idea that she’s broke. “I am one of the most successful adult movie directors in the business,” she said.
