“Don Jr. makes me nervous because his opinion means a lot. He’s done this for a very long time — and also, I have a very big crush on him, so I don’t want to disappoint him,” O’Day, now 34, said in a confessional video that aired in March 2012.
She may have also inadvertently hinted at their lust in a meeting with the real estate heir when developing an ad for Crystal Light Pomegranate Cherry.
“We’re going with the idea of Adam and Eve, the apple and the new forbidden fruit being the pomegranate, except now it’s not forbidden,” O’Day says in the clip. “It’s something you can have, you can like, play with your healthy desire … We call it the ‘Garden of Crystal Delight’ because you have to stir the drink. We want to say, ‘Stir your healthy desire.’”
Sources previously told Page Six that Don Jr. “pursued [Aubrey]. It was him who chased her. He told her that his marriage was already in the process of dissolving. I think his marriage to Vanessa was over long before Aubrey came along.”
