Stormy Daniels' interview with 60 Minutes is set to air Sunday night and the adult film star is gearing up to share her story with the world. Per the Guardian, a record audience is expected to tune in for the sit-down with Anderson Cooper as Daniels discusses her alleged affair with President Trump. In the pre-taped interview, CBS says Daniels talks to Cooper about the relationship she says lasted from 2006 to 2007. "It is the first and only television interview in which she speaks about the alleged relationship," CBS says. The segment is also expected to touch on the legal battle brewing between Daniels and the president, whose attorney, Michael Cohen, says he paid the porn star $130,000 of his own funds in return for her signing an NDA.

An apparent inside look at the tactics being used in that battle was offered up Thursday by Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti, when he tweeted a photo of a CD or DVD with the caption: "If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many words is this worth???? #60minutes #pleasedenyit #basta." The attorney told CNN it was "a warning shot" at Trump and his supporters. Trump has denied the affair ever took place while also claiming that Daniels has violated the NDA multiple times and could owe some $20 million. Trump attorneys are trying to get the case moved into federal court. Daniels' reps argue the NDA was never valid to begin with because Trump never signed it. (Read more Stormy Daniels stories.)
