Prior to adult film star Stormy Daniels' appearance on today's broadcast of The View, her attorney Michael Avenatti hyped the already much-anticipated interview by stating that they will release a composite sketch of the man who Daniels claims threatened her in 2011.
"Yes, there's a lot of publicity, but I didn't do it for that", the adult film star said during her first live national TV interview on ABC's "The View" on Tuesday, "because this isn't what I want to be known for".
Daniels said she took the comment as a direct threat.
She said he leaned in, looked at her infant daughter, and said: "That's a lovely little girl - it'd be a shame if something happened to her mom".
Daniels admitted that she was getting more work, but said that she was also spending more money.

Early a year ago , they both spent time in separate rooms in the same Houston hospital, both being treated for breathing problems. In years past she has been hospitalized for Graves' disease, a thyroid condition, and bronchitis, a respiratory ailment.
Daniels is suing Trump, who has denied the affair, claiming he defamed her. She was with her baby daughter when the thug warned her, "Leave Trump alone".
Daniels repeated her story, first related on CBS' "60 Minutes" last month, that she was on her way to a fitness class with her child when an unknown man approached her in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011. I felt dizzy and went into the restroom and one of the instructors followed me to ask if I was ok, and I lied and said my baby had a blowout. He said, 'Beautiful little girl, it would be a shame if something happened to her mom. Daniels said she spends money on bodyguards, private cars and tutors for her young daughter to protect herself and her family from the negative attention. Daniels also hadn't told her husband what happened with Trump, and didn't want him to know, either. I was rattled. I remember going into the workout class.
Avenatti shot back that McCain's assumptions were "just not accurate" and explained that the judge on Cohen's case granted him access to the hearing, stated that she'd hear from Avenatti on any issue that he wanted to speak about, and recognized that both he and his client had standing in connection with the case.
"It is my chance to defend myself", she said. "What I do for a living doesn't impact my ability to know right from wrong or tell the truth".
Daniels is challenging the validity of the agreement in court, saying Trump never signed it.
