While a guest on the Howard Stern show back in 2005, Donald Trump said he’d walk in on models changing backstage before pageants since he was the owner of Miss USA.
The media ran with the story.
After reaching out to a umber of different contestants, CBS Los Angeles received two strikingly different responses.
Here’s the first, from Miss Arizona 2001. Something tells me Tasha Dixon will be voting for Hillary Clinton…
Tasha Dixon, the 2001 Miss Arizona, said she decided to come forward with her story after hearing Trump’s 2005 interview with Stern.
Dixon — who claims that her decision to speak out isn’t politically motivated — said that Trump had no problem “strolling right in” to the beauty pageant changing room:
“Our first introduction to him was when we were at the dress rehearsal and half naked changing into our bikinis.
“I’m telling you Donald Trump owned the pageant for the reasons to utilize his power to get around beautiful women.”
Former Miss California and Miss USA runner-up Carrie Prejean Boller has a different story…
“To paint Mr. Trump as someone who would purposely walk into a women’s dressing room and ask women to come impress him is the most disgusting accusation so far.
Mr. Trump has empowered me as a woman, has given me career opportunities and defended me during my reign as Miss California USA.”
Boller has stood up for Trump in the past, as well…

Back in May, Boller accused the New York Times of twisting her words to make Trump look bad.
She also added, “I have nothing but positive things to say about Donald Trump.”
Is it slightly odd that two contestants have very different things to say about Trump?
