With her name in the news continuously during her two-night engagement at Thee DollHouse, Stormy Daniels packed the house on Thursday night.
The adult film actress who is embroiled in a controversy involving an alleged sexual encounter with President Donald Trump in 2006 put on a pair of on-stage performances on both Wednesday and Thursday nights.
After attracting more than 200 customers for her first show Wednesday, the masses came on Thursday, as several hundred if not 1,000 were in attendance for the first 10 p.m. show, giving the club easily it's busiest night in several months, according to club officials.
Daniels met and chatted with many a long line of men and women who paid $20 each to take pictures with her or purchase some of her merchandise. She also took free photos with many of the club's dancers.
Her merchandise included nude photos, T-shirts featuring a depiction of Daniels lying on top of an enlarged rolled-up copy of a Forbes magazine with the words "Don't Make Me Spank You" — a reference to reports that Trump asked her to spank him with a copy of a Forbes featuring him on the cover — and copies of her new movie on DVD, a Wicked Pictures film called Unbridled.
Daniels said Wednesday that the completion of the movie was delayed five months because she fell off her horse and injured her back and pelvis to the extent she was forced to use a wheelchair.
Many in attendance Wednesday were visiting golfers, including one man from Pennsylvania who said Daniels was "friendlier than I thought and definitely very pretty." He said his group may have visited the club Wednesday whether Daniels was there or not.
Daniels is capitalizing on her recently increased fame by making paid appearances at strip clubs across the country on what she's calling her "Make America Horny Again" Tour.
Daniels was back in the news on the eve of her DollHouse appearances. On Tuesday, she filed a lawsuit against Trump seeking to invalidate a nondisclosure agreement that she signed days before the 2016 presidential election, according to the Associated Press.
The lawsuit alleges that the agreement is "null and void and of no consequence" because Trump didn't personally sign it, the AP reports.
According to the AP, Daniels claims in the lawsuit that she wanted to go public with the details of her alleged sexual relationship with Trump in the weeks leading up to the election, and she and Trump's attorney Michael Cohen signed the nondisclosure agreement on Oct. 28, 2016.
Cohen has said he paid the porn actress and director $130,000 out of his own pocket as part of the agreement. He has also said that "neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly."
According to NBC News, the White House claimed Wednesday that Cohen obtained a secret restraining order in a private arbitration proceeding and warned that Daniels faces penalties if she publicly discusses a relationship with the President.
