Less than 24 hours after Stormy Daniels appeared on the television show 60 Minutes, a local strip club announced the adult film star would headline a different stage.

According to general manager Thom Naylor, Blush Gentlemen’s Club and Sports Bar in the Cultural District will host Daniels on May 2 and 3. She’s booked to perform four shows and meet and greet with fans.

Daniels detailed her alleged affair with President Donald Trump in 2006 with CBS's 60 Minutes on Sunday. She told reporter Anderson Cooper the two began their relationship at a celebrity golf tournament in 2006, a year after he married current First Lady Melania Trump.

Trump has denied the affair through a spokesperson. His attorney Michael Cohen admitted paying Daniels $130,000 as part of a nondisclosure agreement days before the 2016 presidential election. Daniels said she could be fined $1 million for speaking with Cooper on air.

Naylor said he’s excited to host Daniels, who appeared for five nights at the club in 2014.

“She's in the media right now. I think she's going to be another special performer for us," he said. “We're hoping that it's like our normal shows: that our fans love it, and you know, everybody should have a great night."

Daniels, who has written, directed and starred in adult films, spoke about her stardom on the program.

"And people are like, 'Oh, you're an opportunist. You're taking advantage of this,'" said Daniels. "Yes, I'm getting more job offers now. But tell me one person who would turn down a job offer making more than they've been making, doing the same thing they've always done."

Daniels has been performing at strip clubs around the country in the weeks since her allegations resurfaced. According to the Daily Mail, Daniels has extended her 2018 tour through November. Along with Pittsburgh, she will make stops in Nashville, Dallas and Palm Beach, Fla., the location of Trump’s country club Mar-a-Lago.
