A former Playboy Playmate has told how President Donald Trump cheated on his pregnant fiancée Marla Maples – who later became his second wife – during a steamy six-month affair.
Model Barbara Moore, 49, met the tycoon in March, 1993 – three months after she became Playboy’s Miss December centerfold – and claims the president was a ‘great lover’ and a true ‘gentleman’.
The pair embarked on a passionate love affair which saw Moore spending time with the billionaire at Mar-a-Lago and Trump Tower behind Maples’ back.
And in a series of stunning photos obtained by DailyMail.com the blonde beauty is seen posing up in a bikini amid the opulent surroundings of Mar-a-Lago in the private residence of Trump.
She even took a photo of the president flexing his muscles on a sun lounger by the mansion’s swimming pool.
In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, she said: ‘I dated Donald Trump for around six months, from March to September 1993.
Moore decided to tell her story after being bombarded with press requests after she was named in legal documents filed by former Playboy model Karen McDougal who is now seeking to invalidate her agreement with America Media Inc.

Former Playboy Playmate Barbara Moore, 49, told DailyMail.com about her six-month love affair with Donald Trump that lasted from March to September 1993
‘It was a passionate affair, he was a great lover and a gentleman.
‘But at the time I didn’t know he was with someone else, let alone engaged to Marla Maples and it was only recently I learned she was pregnant at the time. This has shocked me, but I don’t hold it against Donald, he was a great lover and I think he’s a great president.’
DailyMail.com reached out to the White House for comment. A source familiar with the matter said the president said these are more false accusations.
Moore’s revelations come amid a cloud of controversy surrounding his alleged flings with porn star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who both claim to have slept with Trump while he was with current wife Melania.
But while Daniels and McDougal have both publicly criticized the president, Moore is far more complimentary.
She met the billionaire at Trump’s Castle Casino hotel, a former Trump owned property in Atlantic City, New Jersey in March, 1993.
As Miss December, 1992 Moore was hired by Playboy to do a fashion show at the posh casino hotel.
She flew out to New Jersey with five other playmates and a chaperone and recalls being excited at meeting the high flying businessman made famous by his best-selling 1987 book Trump: The Art of the Deal.
‘We were all pretty excited because Donald Trump was The Donald and he had not long written The Art of the Deal.
‘And, you know, he’s a powerful man and he was one of the most eligible bachelors in the world.’
The model, originally from Seattle, Washington, says she landed her big break after she called Playboy and asked to be centerfold. She also appeared as a lifeguard on Baywatch (left)

After the fashion show, Moore says the playmates and several other people went up to a room in the hotel for a cocktail party.
‘There was a pianist and we were hanging around, lounging and mingling,’ she recalls.
‘I remember catching Donald’s eye and then I felt some electricity happening and I felt like everybody in the room could kind of tell.
‘But the other playmates, they were fawning over him.
‘I remember that, everybody wanted to be with Donald Trump and it was just like an instant attraction.
‘Our eyes connected several times during that evening.’
Moore says that when she finally did speak with the billionaire real estate mogul there wasn’t much conversation, but she didn’t escape his gaze.
‘He wasn’t speaking a lot,’ she said.
‘The night was getting late and some people were leaving and I remember a lot of flirtation going on.
‘The other girls were flirting with him and I was kind of in the background and he comes over to me and lifts his arm and says, “You want to go with me?” And I just said yes. And so we left and we went to his suite.’
She said the tycoon instantly charmed her, said she was ‘beautiful’ and ‘classy’ and showed interest in her career.
Moore recalls Trump being impressed that the then 24-year-old was a brand new Playmate and praised her for the hard work starting off as a flight attendant aged 18 in Nashville, Tennessee.
The model, originally from Seattle, Washington, says she landed her big break after looking Playboy up in the Yellow Pages and called up to say she wanted to be a centerfold.
Trump confirmed he was expecting a child with fiancee Marla Maples on April 7, 1993 (pictured) just weeks before he allegedly flew Moore out to his Mar-a-Lago estate
Moore’s relationship with Trump fizzled out around September 1993 when their calls to each other dried up. A month later Trump welcomed his daughter Tiffany (pictured on October 14, 1993) into the world, she was born October 13
Within two weeks she was on a flight from Nashville to Beverly Hills, California for her first photo shoot at the Playboy mansion.
‘Donald was impressed,’ she said. ‘He liked that I’d worked hard to get to the top.
‘And also, you know, he told me a lot about himself and told me about his brother who died of alcoholism and he said he didn’t drink, he never has had a drink but wants other people to have fun.’
The president’s brother Fred Trump Jr died as an alcoholic in 1981 at age 43.
But it wasn’t long before the small talk evaporated into the night and Trump sealed the deal with pretty Moore.
‘I was intimate with him the first night. Yes,’ Moore admits with a wry smile.
‘And it was really… I felt special. I felt like he was very passionate with me and we both felt a chemistry.
‘I was surprised he was older, I’d never been with an older man before, but he was good, a really good lover. He was kissing my neck, being really attentive. And you know, the sex was normal, he didn’t ask me to do anything weird at all.
‘Of course I wasn’t really sure if this was going to go further, but I was thinking that this was an exciting moment.
‘I was with Donald Trump and it was a wonderful evening, it was really great.
‘I felt like it was love-making, not just a one night stand. ‘And I didn’t feel like I was a piece of meat or anything. I just felt really admired and adored. He was very loving.’
After sex, Moore said Trump cuddled her all night and she stayed in his bed until the next morning.
At that point she said she was a little embarrassed to do the walk of shame back to her room in the sparkly gold dress she was wearing from the night before.

Aware of the home’s history Moore went through every room and shared photos of the trip. In one photo Moore posed up with Trump’s personal chef in the kitchen while holding a Mimosa. She says she and Trump enjoyed a ‘nice’ ‘long dinner’
In one picture she is seen holding a drink as she walks up the red-carpeted stairs leading up to Trump’s master bedroom which she said had a ‘bigger’ and ‘better’ bed than any one she has seen

Moore also claimed that despite Trump’s ‘riches and wealth’ he was a ‘normal guy.’ Above she is pictured in the dining room of the mansion
She spent time sunbathing in her bikini and swimming in the mansion’s luxury pool. Trump’s personal chef also cooked up a feast for Trump and his four guests
‘I mean I was in this cocktail dress, it was North Beach leather and it was very ornate on the front, but I didn’t want to be that girl walking back to my room in clothes from the night before,’ she recalls.
‘So Donald gave me an overcoat and called a security guard up to his suite.
‘I felt like, wow, this guy really is nice. He’s a gentleman. He was a complete gentlemen the whole time.’
Moore left Trump’s room on cloud nine and the businessman promised to give her a call.
True to his word, two days after Moore had returned to her home in Beverly Hills, Trump called.
Moore, who these days lives in Phoenix, Arizona, recalls: ‘I was in my Beverly Hills apartment, a brand new place. I didn’t even have furniture yet. I was sitting on the floor and I remember Donald Trump calls me up and he invited me right away to Mar-a-Lago and I was pretty excited.’
A few weeks later at the end of April Trump flew Moore first class to Florida.
Knowing he might be busy for some of the trip the model asked if she could bring a friend, which Trump agreed to.
Moore and a fellow playmate stayed at the mansion for five nights.
The impressive $200million Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach was built in the 1920s by cereal-company heiress and socialite Majorie Merriwather Post.
The stunning 126-room, 62,500 sq ft ‘palace’ contains the Mar-a-Lago Club, a members-only club with guest rooms, a spa, and other hotel-style amenities.
By the pool: liked the fact that Moore was ‘a really girly girl,’ she said
Fun in the sun: She described the experience at the 126-room, 62,500 sq ft ‘palace’ as ‘a whirlwind’ and ‘a fantasy come true’
Posing: Moore said she was dressed in her bikini while Trump was wearing golf attire and together the two would lie by the pool where he took pictures of her
Moore said: ‘I spent the night in his master bedroom where we had sex. The next day we went swimming’

And don’t forget the 62-acre, 27-hole golf course which Trump likes to frequent.
Trump bought the vast mansion in 1985 for $10million and his family keeps private quarters in a separate closed off area of the house and grounds.
Moore recalls arriving before her friend, who she prefers not to name, who was flying in from New York.
‘I got there and we played golf, well actually he played golf and I watched, he would hit the ball and we would ride the golf cart together,’ she recalls.
‘I was so attracted to him. He was so tall and big, and he’s so manly and that is my type. And then on top of that he’s powerful and he was the supreme Gentlemen, he made me feel so beautiful.’
Moore vividly recalls how Trump was having a custom-built spiral staircase installed inside the mansion while she was there.
A man and wife team designed the staircase and so impressed Trump with their work that he invited them to dinner.
Moore said the couple was blown away by the gesture and ‘excited’ to be joining ‘The Donald’ at the table.
Trump’s personal chef cooked up a feast for Trump and his four guests.
‘He’s so nice. And that’s when I realized he’s just like a normal guy, you know, all of his riches and his wealth. It hadn’t gone to his head,’ gushed Moore.
‘He loved socializing, he loved people.
‘We had a nice time, long dinner, nice conversation, and I spent the night in his master bedroom where we had sex. The next day we went swimming.
‘I was dressed in my bikini and he was just in his casual attire, like golf wear, and he lay by the pool with me and I was having a Mimosa and he was taking pictures of me and he liked it, he liked that I was a really girly girl.
She met the billionaire at Trump’s Castle Casino hotel, a former Trump owned property (now known as Golden Nugget) in Atlantic City, New Jersey in March, 1993
‘I would make him laugh. And I remember him taking a lot of pictures of me. The whole thing was a whirlwind, a fantasy come true.’
Aware of the home’s history Moore went through every room and shared photos of the trip with DailyMail.com.
In one photo Moore poses up with Trump’s personal chef in the kitchen holding a Mimosa.
In another she’s sat on a sofa in an opulent living area, surrounded by ornate lamps and glittering chandeliers.
Behind her are four photo frames, three are Trump family photos and the fourth is a cover of Fortune magazine featuring the billionaire.
The young blonde walked the historic corridors and popped her head into each sumptuous room filled with rivers of marble, carved stone, gold leaf, oriental rugs, and 16th century Flemish tapestries.
In other happy snaps Moore is seen lazing around the Mar-a-lago beach and by the pool.
She even had a photo of the red-carpeted stairs leading up to Trump’s master bedroom.
And of course Trump’s bed would have to be ‘bigger’ and ‘better’ than any bed Moore has seen.
‘It was huge, it was bigger than a California King,’ she said.
‘The house was just beautiful, I was in a dream.’
Significantly the printed photos – taken on a film camera – still have their date stamp in the bottom right corner.
In one shot Moore took of Trump looking relaxed and flexing his muscles on a sun lounger the stamp is dated April 25, 1993 in the bottom right corner – when the businessman’s fiancée Maples will have been around four months pregnant with their daughter Tiffany.
She claims Trump even tried to intervene when it emerged that Anna Nicole Smith was to be named Playmate of the Year 1993, despite Moore winning the phone-in vote. Trump even sent her a clipping of a New York Post article in the mail and drew in one of his famous black marker arrows instructing her which bit to read

Moore – who wasn’t aware of Trump’s relationship with Maples at the time – recalls seeing a tiny passport size photo of a woman sitting on a kitchen counter inside the mansion.
The woman, she later learned, was Maples. Trump never told Moore he was in a serious relationship.
After her dreamland visit to Mar-a-Lago, Moore and Trump regularly spoke over the phone.
Moore says she’d regularly call him and came to be on first name terms with his two personal assistants, Rhona and Norma. (Rhona Graff was Trump’s executive assistant and Norma Infante Foerderer was his long-time personal assistant)
In an old phone book Moore dug out of her attic an entry under T shows Donald Trump’s phone numbers entered in pencil.
She says Trump would always take her call and they’d chat for hours on end.
She was sometimes patched up to his phone on board his private jet.
‘He always had time for me and would always say “hi, beautiful.” And that made me feel good. I got so comfortable with the phone calls, he wanted to know how my days were and he’d mostly talk about me.
‘I definitely felt like our relationship was getting stronger. And, and that’s when he invited me to New York to the Trump Tower and I just thought that, you know, we were an item. I thought that we were dating and I was special.’
Moore was again flown first class to NYC and stayed with Trump at his opulent Trump Tower penthouse apartment for what was to be a relatively uneventful weekend.
‘It was really over the top, what a place. But I remember from that trip was that we just hung out at his place, ate food, watched movies, had sex.’

She was mentioned in Twitter posts which made innuendo about her connection to Trump, leading many reporters to believe she was on elf the women allegedly paid off to keep quiet
During the summer of ’93 Moore was in New York again, this time for a Playboy photo shoot.
She recalls her friend, also a playmate, saying, ‘why don’t you call your boyfriend.’
‘I said, okay and I did,’ she recalls. ‘I was put through and he answered and was on his private plane and he goes, “well, why don’t you guys come over to the Trump Tower?”
‘And I remember that my friend said behind me, “make sure that I can have some champagne.”

‘He laughed and said she could have anything she wants.’
Moore says her and her friend arrived at the apartment and Trump said he was tired from his flight – not too tired for what was to follow, however.
‘We had a couple of glasses of champagne and Donald was laying on his back, on his bed with his arms up and we were just sitting on the corner of his bed talking and chatting.
‘Then he goes “come here” and I just started to hug him and we started kissing and my friend was still there.
‘We just went at it and it was like she just didn’t exist.’
As things turned steamy the friend retreated but only as far as a chair in the corner of the room.
She sat and watched as Moore and the billionaire had sex.
Moore smiles at the naughty moment.
‘She was kind of giggling and it was playful, but he, he was only focused on me and it didn’t really matter because we were such good friends and I didn’t care she was there.
‘It wasn’t a normal thing for me to have somebody in the room. I was really young and it’s just what happened.’
Moore said Trump didn’t suggest the friend take part.
Asked whether her lover’s manhood matched his ‘huuuge’ personality, the model replied: ‘Let’s just say it matched his height. It was nice, there was nothing odd about it.’
The model says she was besotted with her new billionaire lover revealing POTUS is a ‘great lover’ between the sheets and said the sex was ‘normal’.
She recalls how she almost bought him a novelty key-ring she had spotted at the airport.
‘It read “The world’s greatest lover,”‘ she laughs. ‘But I decided against it because it was kind of dorky, but seriously he was good.’
Throughout the illicit affair, Moore says it never once occurred to her that Trump might be engaged to another woman. Maples married Trump two months after daughter Tiffany was born and the two remained together for six years

Moore says that Trump became a ferocious champion of her modeling career during their romantic tryst.
He even tried to intervene when it emerged that Anna Nicole Smith was to be named Playmate of the Year 1993, despite Moore winning the phone-in vote.
‘He was so upset that they could have a phone-in vote, yet somebody else got it and I didn’t. Donald wanted it to be fair,’ Moore recalls.
Trump even sent her a clipping of a New York Post article in the mail and drew in one of his famous black marker arrows instructing her which bit to read.
The article detailed how Anna Nicole would win the accolade despite collecting fewer phone in votes.
Throughout the illicit affair Moore says it never once occurred to her that Trump might be engaged to another woman.
And not for a second did Moore think Trump was two-timing her with another woman, let alone engaged to someone.
Even when her aunt living in New Jersey, who was working in New York as a fit model, passed comment that she thought Trump was dating someone called Marla, Moore ignored it.
‘I suppose I trusted him because we talked almost every day, but my aunt was right.
‘I never ever thought that he was seeing anybody else that didn’t even cross my mind.
‘I was very young and I just thought this is my guy right now.
‘He was never too busy for me, you know, he always picked up the phone. There was never one time that he didn’t answer. I never felt he was sneaking around.’
Moore also cites the fact that the internet wasn’t prevalent in 1993 meaning you could only read celebrity gossip in magazines.
Eventually the relationship fizzled out in and around September 1993 when their calls to each other dried up.
A month later Trump welcomed his daughter Tiffany into the world, she was born October 13.
And in December that same year the billionaire married Maples, also a model, in a lavish New York ceremony with over 1,100 guests.
Moore remembers reading in the newspaper that Trump had married.
‘That made so much sense to me because I was like wondering why was this relationship was getting distant?
‘But I was still shocked when I found out, because he was obviously with her at the same time as he was with me.
‘I never knew. What’s worse is that she was pregnant and gave birth before they married, that I didn’t know until recently.’
Moore, who later appeared in Baywatch and was a sexy Fembot in hit movie Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery in 1997, says she did bump into Trump again at the 50th anniversary of Playboy celebration in New York in December, 2003.
She said he was with Melania – who would become his third wife in 2005 – but said hi and gave her ‘those eyes’.
Moore says she’s coming forward to tell her story now after being bombarded with press requests after she was named in legal documents filed by former Playboy model Karen McDougal who claims to have had a 10-month affair with Trump.
She was mentioned in Twitter posts which made innuendo about her connection to Trump, leading many reporters to believe she was on elf the women allegedly paid off to keep quiet.
Stormy Daniels was allegedly paid $130,000 hush money not to reveal her story.
Moore, who these days is a ballroom dancer in Phoenix who still models occasionally, claims she wants to ‘get ahead’ of the story so the facts behind what happened with her and Trump aren’t twisted.
She also reveals that neither Trump nor his lawyers have ever approached her and no one has offered money to buy her silence.
As for her old flame being taking up office in the White House – she thinks he’s doing a ‘great job’.
The registered Republican is still a big supporter of the president and voted for him in the election.
‘When Donald became the presidential nominee for the Republican Party, I was so excited,’ she explains.
‘My daughter and I went and we voted for him.
‘I love him as our president. I love him because it’s funny to me when he kind of puts his foot in his mouth.
‘It doesn’t bother me because I know the real Donald. He’s just funny, you know, and he doesn’t mean to hurt anybody. He made me laugh all those years ago and still does.
‘I think he’s doing a great job and there’s more to come. I feel safe with him in charge.’
