Trump Tried to Dump Because of Baby Bump

2/22/2007 5:29 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump, Nancy O'DellNBC announced today that "Access Hollywood's" Nancy O'Dell will host next month's Miss USA Pageant, but if it had gone Donald Trump's way, that wouldn't be the case.

A source tells TMZ that the enigmatic real estate mogul wanted to drop O'Dell as host because he doesn't like the way pregnant women look. But it's not The Donald's call: O'Dell is under contract with NBC and is the host of the "Access Hollywood" (which is syndicated on many NBC stations), and she will also be fronting the network's Oscar coverage this weekend. The lesson here: Don't pick on the Peacock's golden girl, Donald!

What was particularly troubling to O'Dell, our source says, is that the Miss USA Pageant is supposed to embody more than just how a woman looks in a bikini. It's safe to say that O'Dell, who will be six-months pregnant when the pageant airs, won't be sporting a two-piece.

Trump's camp had no comment.

I don't care how much money this dude has; his comment and view of women show that he has a caveman mentality, and no class, whatsoever. This man just disgusts me, oh I so hope that Rosie will pick up on this. Women of the World unite!

My ultimate fantasy is a three way between myself, Nancy O'Dell and Maria Menounos, while Dayna Devon holds the camera.

Oh, yeah...Did I mention...Trump is an idiot.

I have been one of The Donald's biggest fans, but if this is true, he can kiss my ass.

That must be a typo in the story... while the Miss AMERICA pageant embodies more than just physical beauty, but I don't think even close to the same can be said about Trump's Miss USA.

And just when I was enjoying getting a kick out of Donald he has to pull a stunt like this. He must have really made his wife Melania feel terrible during her pregnancy. Did he hide her out in Trump Tower on the top floor and only see her again once the 'disgusting' pregnancy was over?

Come on Trumpster - keep picking on the likes of O'Donnell. Her and her 'heterophobic' self is the one deserving of your words.

Donald Trump is just proving further that he is just such a jackass. In every aspect of his life. I can't believe three women have agreed to marry this man. He is shallow, superficial and a phony.
