In the aftermath of the leaked video tape on which Donald Trump brags about being able to sexually assault women because he is a celebrity, more and more people who previously worked with Trump and experienced sexist behavior are coming forward.

One of those women is Tasha Dixon, Miss Arizona in 2001’s Miss USA Pageant. Donald Trump ran this pageant, and Dixon says that she experienced sexual harassment while she was working under the Republican nominee. A few other women who were contestants on Miss USA have also backed up her story.

Here’s what you need to know about Tasha Dixon.

1. She Says Trump Would Walk in While Contestants Were Changing

Tasha Dixon competed in the The 50th Annual Miss USA Pageant in 2001. (

Amid allegations that Donald Trump has behaved abusively towards women in the past, Tasha Dixon shared experiences she had working with Trump on the Miss USA Pageant when she was 18 years old.

In an interview with CBS Los Angeles, Dixon said that she first met Trump when she, in addition to her fellow Miss USA contestants, was half-naked in the dressing room and Trump walked in. She says that many girls were completely nude or at least topless, and they did not have a chance to get fully dressed before Trump walked in. They were then told to go fawn over Trump.

She also said that she believes this is essentially the reason that Trump ran a beauty pageant in the first place.

“I’m telling you Donald Trump owned the pageant for the reasons to utilize his power to get around beautiful women,” she said. “Who do you complain to? He owns the pageant. There’s no one to complain to. Everyone there works for him.”

She is not the only Miss USA contestant to make this accusation. Bridget Sullivan, a former Miss New Hampshire, made the exact same allegation to BuzzFeed News last year, saying that Trump would frequently come backstage and stare at the naked contestants. Sullivan said that she found his behavior extremely creepy, adding that he would sometimes “hug you just a little low on your back.”

Four other women later told BuzzFeed News that they witnessed the same behavior. Eleven women said they didn’t recall anything like this happening. One contestant said she viewed Trump coming backstage like this more as a way of him being pompous and asserting his power as the owner of the pageant rather than him trying to get a look at naked young girls.

2. Trump Admitted to Doing This During a Howard Stern Interview

It’s not just the word of these former Miss USA contestants that backs up this story. It’s the word of Donald Trump himself.

CNN recently uncovered a 2005 Howard Stern interview during which Trump says that he gets to see naked women all the time because he’s a beauty pageant owner.

“I’ll tell you the funniest is that I’ll go backstage before a show and everyone’s getting dressed,” Trump said. “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it…‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

The Trump campaign has not responded to this particular tape, although in general the Republican nominee usually dismisses clips of himself on the Howard Stern show, saying he was an entertainer at the time who was playing along with the raunchy radio host.

3. Dixon is a Conservative

Tasha Dixon says she identifies as a conservative. (

In anticipation of Trump supporters accusing Dixon of coming out with this information in order to aid Hillary Clinton, Dixon said that she is a conservative herself.

“I’m Miss Arizona so I veer more on the conservative side,” she said. “But I just like to choose what’s right.”

Outside of beauty pageants, some other women who have worked with Donald Trump have come forward for similar reasons, saying they felt they had to do what was right. That included former Apprentice contestant Marshawn Evans, who says Trump treated them differently than he treated the men.

“We were explicitly told to dress sexy, to be appealing, and to make sure that we ‘matched the Trump brand,'” she said.

Evans went on to say that she never personally witnessed anything involving Trump attacking a woman, but she noted that she thought it was strange that Trump would often comment on women’s looks and attire at seemingly random moments.

4. She Has Appeared as a Guest Star on Various TV Shows

One of Tasha Dixon’s first big experiences with television was the Miss USA pageant, but it wasn’t her last.

Since then, Dixon has worked as an actor, appeared on various television shows primarily in small roles. Some of those shows have included Guiding Light, NCIS, Terriers, $#*! My Dad Says, and Sex Sent Me to the ER.

She has also appeared in some web comedy like the College Humor original short I’m So Broke. She is currently in pre-production on a new YouTube comedy series, according to her website. 

5. She Wrote a Screenplay About Donald Trump

Tasha Dixon dabbles in writing in addition to acting, and she actually took her experiences with Donald Trump during the Miss USA pageant and turned it into a screenplay.

According to her website, the script was “loosely based on her time in the pageant world and run-ins with Donald Trump.” The screenplay has never been made public, although there certainly will be renewed interest in it in light of recent events.

In addition, Dixon has written scrips for feature films and television pilots, although so far it appears the only one that has been made is Burden Hill, a 2007 short film which Dixon also directed.

  1. Why am I not surprised anti-trump Morrow is behind this hog wash story. Women theorizing about what happened with 3x the number saying they did t experience any of that or giving alternative reasons.

    Were you Morrow invited to the DNC off the record parties?? Probably not because your made up story is terrible and illogical.

    • Well even most famous rapist didnt rape every women they met. 20 women spoke about Bill Cosby and Im sure you can find 3x women who will say did not experienced anything with Cosby

    • Queen #1
      Tasha Dixon, the 2001 Miss Arizona:
      “I’m telling you Donald Trump owned the pageant for the reasons to utilize his power to get around beautiful women.”
      (Using good grammar)

      While Dixon’s account certainly shows the GOP nominee in a dismal light, a separate beauty queen is painting a very different picture of Trump:

      Queen #2
      Carrie Prejean Boller — a former Miss California and Miss USA runner-up:

      “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.”

      Perhaps most notably, she accused the New York Times in May of twisting her words in order to write a ‘hit piece’ on Trump:
      “…I basically wouldn’t give them a story and now they came out with their own version of it, and took something out of my book and just totally twisted it and made it so negative.
      And I have nothing but positive things to say about Donald Trump.”

  2. Why is it that whenever something like this comes up, these women come out of the woodwork? It’s so hard to believe anything when they conveniently come forward years and sometimes decades later. It makes me think they probably asked for a payoff and when that didn’t come, they started talking. It may or may not have happened, but it appears that it didn’t bother them that much if no one said a word publicly for 15 years. I know there could be a lot of reasons to not say anything at the time but for 15 years???

    • You Obviously thank GOD have never been inappropriately touched , groped or assulted. I have been, unfortunately more than once by Men of just DONALD TRASH TRUMP lower than life equal. ITS TERRIBLE ITS SO difficult to address these powerful aggressive men. As we’ve all heard its the normal behavior of Donald Trump unable to control his own actions as he addmitted himself Loud and clear.

    • So, this crazy woman claims,Donald Trump’s manager grabbed her violently and threw her to the floor. She files a police report stating that her pussy hurt.

    • “Why is it that whenever something like this comes up, these women come out of the woodwork?”
      You’re asking why whenever Crazy Donald boasts about his unacceptable or unlawful behavior, someone comes forward and corroborates his statement.

  3. OMG, she’s a writer? She has a screenplay. WELL THIS IS JUST SOOOOO CONVENIENT. A true conservative living in West Hollywood. PUH LEEZ

  4. I have worked pageants and fashions shows for years. Men are always around backstage. If you felt uncomfortable you shouldn’t have participated. That is just the nature of the business. My question is “If it was so intimidating did you quit after 2001 or go one do do more pageants or fashion shows?

    • These are some of her claims to fame. I don’t think she was too traumatized
      by a man walking through the dressing room!

      • Needless to say, she has worked very hard. She started out as a nobody and has now advanced to being a national joke. Has anyone seen a nude photo of her on the web? Private suggestion, look very closely.

  5. I worked with this girl. She was a little off. I got a feeling that she was the type that was so desperate to do anything to become famous . It doesn’t surprise me that she is doing this

  6. I worked with this girl. She was a little off. I got a feeling that she was the type that was so desperate to do anything to become famous . It doesn’t surprise me that she is doing this. She could have quit if she was that freaked out. Definitely a publicity stunt.

  7. If he did so what? Now women know how male athletes feel when female reporters invade their space. Equality is a bitch.

  8. Of course Trump will look. He is a straight male. People who don’t like Trump should just stick to his politics. Instead of trying to turn him into a sexual deviant or rapist. If you want to go into the sexual realm, the Clintons are worse. Including Hillary.

  9. If all that was going on why didn’t she just drop out, money hungry women will do anything. I am sure she didn’t stop there watch out men wonder who is next because women never takes the blame for anything. I am sure they knew he was coming in that room. look at how she is sitting with her dress hiked up in that interview. Scandalous.

  10. Trump is actually a democrat then. He and Clinton would love to hang around and talk woman. Any politician is a satanist, a pedofile, or a pervert. Pick one
