Daniels was scheduled to appear on the Feb 1 show but canceled.
About two-and-a-half months after she canceled on ABC’s The View, the show announced Wednesday that adult film star Stephanie Clifford, aka Stormy Daniels, will finally make an appearance April 17. She will be joined on the show by her media savvy attorney, Michael Avenatti.
Daniels’ decision to cancel was thought to be prompted by dismissive comments made on an episode of The View by a guest panelist, HLN host S.E. Cupp. A conservative political pundit, Cupp questioned late night host Jimmy Kimmel’s decision to interview Daniels, who she said was “cleaning up” and “making a ton of money.”
Daniels, of course, sat for a lengthy interview on 60 Minutes on March 25 that brought the network more than 22 million viewers.
Daniels is still firmly in the national news cycle. NBC News reported Tuesday that Daniels — and Avenatti — are cooperating with federal investigators interested in a $130,000 payment made to her in 2016 by Donald Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. A raid on Cohen’s New York office this week was said to be related in part to Cohen’s payment to Daniels, which followed her signing a nondisclosure agreement that her team says is now invalid.
