Arianne Zucker is refusing to comment on Donald Trump’s crude and graphic remarks about women from 2005, but that year, she had a lot to say about Trump.
In 2005, after Trump appeared on “Days of our Lives,” Zucker talked openly about working with him to Lisa Rinna and Ty Treadway on “Soap Talk.” Surprisingly, Zucker had nothing but nice things to say about the businessman.
Zucker told the hosts that Trump’s cameo on the show was “really good” and praised his acting chops.
“The first take was a little rough because he was sort of figuring out where he was going, not used to the show. It took us three takes the first time, but the second scene was pretty fast and we were in and out,” Zucker said at the time.
Zucker’s character, Nicole Walker, is a sexy vixen who tried to seduce Trump in the 2005 episode but she gets shot down.
In the leaked video from the Washington Post, Trump reportedly spotted Zucker and said, “I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait.”
Trump’s appearance on “Days of Our Lives” aired on Oct. 24, 2005. He married his current wife, Melania Trump, in January of 2005.
She was pregnant with their first child, Baron, at the time of his soap opera appearance.
