During Friday’s broadcast, Nygard’s former treasurer, Maridel Carbuccia, speaks out in her first interview about allegations that Nygard drugged and sexually assaulted her. Carbuccia tells Dateline, “I started getting fuzzy vision and really, really dizzy. And I couldn’t feel my hands. I just hear him talking to me and talking to me and then all of a sudden I just wasn’t functional anymore. And I tried, like mentally, I was trying to get up. But, I couldn’t get up. He was just on top of me. And I kept trying to push away. I was like, ‘Peter, get off me. What are you doing?’” She added, “When I woke up in the morning, I was just there by myself. Nobody was there.” To watch the exchange, click here.

Trey Peele: I was like, mom, we need to speak up about it. Like, you need to tell your story and make sure other people are not scared to come out, because if you come out, many will follow many, many, many will follow. And I think I’m okay with it as long as you’re okay with it. And we could just go through this together. That’s how I kind of described it to her.
