Nancy O'Dell returned to 'Entertainment Tonight' and responded to the leaked Trump tapes


Nancy O'Dell returned to "Entertainment Tonight," Monday and delivered a frank message in response to being objectified in a leaked 2005 conversation between Donald Trump and her former "Access Hollywood" colleague, Billy Bush. 

"I feel it's very important that I address you all directly," O'Dell said Monday night on ET. "As a journalist for 26 years now, it is my job to bring you news about others, rather than turning the focus on myself. But by now, I'm sure that most of you have heard the audio tape which became national news and part of the presidential race.

My name was mentioned and, unfortunately, the release of it has thrown me into the middle of the political arena of which I didn't ask to be a part."

"I released a statement on Saturday and I truly mean what I said," O'Dell continued. "There is no room for objectification of women, or anybody for that matter, not even in the 'locker room.'"

In the 2005 video, Trump and Bush discussed his failed attempt to have sex with a woman named Nancy. 

"I moved on her like a (expletive), but I couldn't get there and she was married," Trump said in the tape. 

On Friday, "Access Hollywood" revealed that O'Dell was the "Nancy" mentioned in the tapes.  

Trump later apologized, but dismissed the comments, calling it mere "locker-room talk."
