“Celebrity Apprentice” contestant Aubrey O’Day told Wendy Williams in 2012 that she wouldn’t date Eric Trump, but she didn’t say anything about Donald Jr., with whom she was reportedly having an affair at the time.
Shortly after appearing on Season 5 of the NBC reality show, which was hosted by Donald Trump, and featured Ivanka and Donald Trump, Jr. as boardroom judges, O’Day visited “The Wendy Williams Show.” Williams noted there seemed to be sparks between the singer and Eric, who was then single, and asked if a romance was possible.
“No, he’s too corny for me, girl,” O’Day laughed. “I can’t do it. I need a man with some swagger and there’s none. Nice guy, I’m sure he’ll marry a cute little blonde … ex Miss Universe, whatever, but not me, sorry.”
According to multiple reports that surfaced Monday, O’Day and Donald Jr., whose wife Vanessa filed for divorce last week, had an affair that began in late 2011 and continued through March 2012.
Us Weekly reported the relationship was “serious all of a sudden” and the elder Trump son nearly ended his marriage for the singer. Donald Jr. and his wife apparently weathered that storm for another five years before Vanessa filed for divorce on March 15, effectively ending their 12-year union.
O’Day hinted toward a dubious connection to the Trump family after the 2016 election with a tweet that lamented Donald Trump being elected President, followed by the claim that, “My story I didn’t tell is worth millions now.”

Trump Jr. and O’Day have yet to comment on the alleged affair.
In 2014, Eric married blond beauty Lara Yunaska, who is a television host, though not a Miss Universe.
