Karen McDougal Professional Career

Modeling career

After she completed college, McDougal moved to Detroit and started teaching pre-kindergarten. During this period, she was convinced by some friends to try out for a swimsuit competition. She did a modeling assignment as a promotional model at a Harley-Davidson bike show in Detroit and along with this also won a local swimsuit competition promoted by Venus Swimwear. Consecutively, she earned a place at the international final in Florida and was approached by Playboy soon after that. Playboy offered her a test shoot at Playboy Studio West and she was promptly selected to return for a complete photo and video shoot. Karen was chosen as Miss December in 1997 and Playmate of the Year in 1998. The next year, she became the first woman to appear on the cover of Men’s Fitness magazine. Following this, she also appeared in other fitness and bodybuilding magazines such as Muscle & Fitness, Physical, and Iron Man.

Television career

McDougal appeared in various adult television commercials for the XFL football league. She was cast in a direct-to-video movie The Arena, co-starring Lisa Dergan. Karen has also appeared as one of the interviewees in an episode of E! True Hollywood Story. Other than this, she has guest-hosted TV programs such as Wild On!, VIP Access, Lovespring International, Anger Management, The O’Reilly Factor, and movies like Joe Dirt, Charlie’s Angels, Grind, The Girl Next Door, and Raising Helen.

Business Ventures

Apart from a thriving career in modeling and appearing in a significant number of TV shows and movies, Karen is also a successful businesswoman. In 2010, she became one of the owners of Pharmore Alternatives, a company that is involved in selling various health and wellness supplements.

Affair with Donald Trump

A report came from the Wall Street Journal in 2016 mentioned that Karen McDougal had told a friend about her having an affair with a married Donald Trump from 2006 to 2007. The report included various sources claiming that the affair lasted for around ten months. It also said that American Media, Inc. (AMI) had paid McDougal $150,000 for exclusive rights to her story, but never published it. So, it seemed like some kind of hush money rather than an amount for owning the story rights.

The story again circulated four days before the 2016 United States presidential election when Wall Street Journal published the whole affair once again. Donald Trump was the Republican Party nominee in the upcoming election and despite the controversy, he won the election. Again in 2018, while Trump was the President, The New Yorker published the story of the affair and AMI’s purchase of the story. In the same year, Karen appeared for an interview where she discussed the details of the affair and also apologized to Melania Trump. She told the interviewer that Trump tried to give her money and that she visited him multiple times even after that.
