Donald Trump met alleged Playboy playmate mistress after taping The Apprentice at the Playboy Mansion
Ronan Farrow reports in The New Yorker that Trump met Karen McDougal, the runner-up to Pamela Anderson for "Playmate of the '90s," at a party Hugh Hefner threw for The Donald and his The Apprentice: Los Angeles contestants after they finished taping an episode at the Playboy mansion in June 2006. McDougal detailed the alleged nine-month affair in an eight-page handwritten note to a friend who gave it to Farrow. At the party, McDougal wrote, Trump “immediately took a liking to me, kept talking to me - telling me how beautiful I was, etc. It was so obvious that a Playmate Promotions exec said, ‘Wow, he was all over you - I think you could be his next wife.'"

Omarosa on Celebrity Big Brother is proof that reality TV has become “a fourth branch of government”
Omarosa's tearful criticism of President Trump while chatting with Ross “The Intern” Mathews on Celebrity Big Brother was "a Frost/Nixon interview for the Trump era,” says James Poniewozik, “when politics and reality TV have become inseparable and indistinguishable. Television, from Fox and Friends in the morning to Big Brother at night, is now a fourth branch of government.” Poniewozik also points out that there is a “kind of literary symmetry” to Omarosa, the most “Trumpian” competitor, going after her former boss with “the very tools he taught her to use.” “She recognized that the show was a contest not of business acumen but of getting and leveraging attention,” he says. “She created conflict in the belief that chaos yields opportunity. She denied mistakes even when she’d made them on camera. She didn’t win the season, but she won the greater prize of fame.”

Fire and Fury Trump White House TV series should model itself after Game of Thrones
With Michael Wolff’s bestselling book slated to hit the small screen, Variety's Sonia Saraiya sees some startling similarities between its depiction of the Trump White House and the world of the HBO mega-hit. “The show that Fire and Fury is most like is HBO’s Game of Thrones,” she says. “The fantasy-drama series is about the dysfunctional inner dynamics of the most powerful families in the world, and how those relationships intersect with the power and policy governing an entire nation. Wolff creates a narrative footnoted by stints in Ivy League institutions and tours in multinational corporations, which may as well be their own ultra-privileged fantasy world. Even the title evokes A Song of Ice and Fire, with its florid elementals; Wolff’s own name seems cribbed from the fan site westeros.net.”

Stormy Daniels plays coy in a confusing interview with Jimmy Kimmel
The porn star who allegedly had an affair with Donald Trump wouldn’t confirm or deny anything over the course of the 11-minute interview. As Ross A. Lincoln put it, Kimmel viewers hoping Daniels would “dish on her rumored affair with Donald Trump were probably disappointed after her appearance on Tuesday night’s show. Or… were they? That’s the question after a extremely coy back and forth aired after Trump’s State of the Union address, in which Daniels wouldn’t confirm that she denied the affair in a written statement released Tuesday afternoon. And also didn’t deny she denied the affair. And also didn’t actually deny the affair. And also didn’t confirm or deny she signed a non disclosure agreement regarding the reputed affair. Still with us?”

CNN president Jeff Zucker has emerged as a candidate for the ESPN president job
Zucker started his career as a researcher on NBC Sports’ 1988 Olympics coverage before running the Today show and, much later, the entire NBC network, where he helped make Donald Trump a TV star on The Apprentice. Now, after finding success at CNN, Zucker is reportedly lobbying for the top ESPN job to replace John Skipper, who resigned abruptly last month. Zucker “is an intriguing proposition,” according to Deadline, which adds: “He has a higher profile than any of the other potential candidates. He was able to reverse CNN’s linear ratings declines even before the Donald Trump-fueled political coverage ratings bonanza. He also successfully built the cable news network’s digital brand, overseeing a big online expansion.” UPDATE: A CNN spokesperson says: "“Jeff loves his job at CNN and has no interest in running ESPN."
