Billy Bush Speaks: ‘It’s Been A Roller Coaster’ Since Trump Tape Scandal


Billy Bush was thrust into a very uncomfortable spotlight on October 7, 2016 when he was overheard engaging in misogynistic banter with then-candidate Donald Trump in a leaked Access Hollywood tape. Bush, 45, was let go from his on-air job at Today soon after.

“It’s been a roller coaster,” an ashamed Bush says. “…When you have a big, traumatic event, you go through stages, and it led to acceptance and understanding… And I developed a commitment to become a better, fuller man.”

Bush says he was hit especially hard by his three daughters’ initial reactions to the tape, but he has since enjoyed support from his wife and children as he looks to get his career back on track.
