She nagged Trump with questions about the Access Hollywood tape that was in NBC’s possession, on which can be found a controversial conversation between Trump and Billy Bush on the topic of women. Because of her determination, Katy was often booed by Trump supporters, and Trump attempted to bash her verbally in his media interviews, however, this only increased Katy’s popularity, and at the end of the campaign, Katy published the book “Unbelievable: My Front-Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History” – the sales of the book have also contributed to her net worth.
