Playing 'Shark Tank' Star Barbara Corcoran Says Donald Trump Once Made Comments About Her Breast Size in a Business Meeting

Barbara Corcoran is speaking out about her own personal experience with presidential candidate Donald Trump.

The 67-year-old businesswoman, who's most recognizable for her role as in investor on ABC's Shark Tank, claims in a new interview that she was once subjected to lewd comments made by Trump about the size of her breasts when she was pregnant with her first child. Corcoran says the incident happened during a business meeting.

"I was pregnant with my first child at the time, and so was his second wife [Marla Maples]," she tells CNN anchor Erin Burnett. "And he compared my breast size to his wife by putting his hands in the air, talking about large ... I was in a business meeting. I was, like, shocked."

Corcoran says she thought about the incident afterwards.

"How would I have felt if I had been a young woman -- not a successful businesswoman -- and been in a situation like that?" she muses. "I would have felt very compromised."

The mother of two says she believes the multiple women who have accused 70-year-old Trump of inappropriately touching them in the past, which Trump and his campaign team have denied.

"I just think it's preposterous that he's claiming he's done nothing like that," Corcoran says. "He's been that way, always."

Since Trump's 2005 lewd comments about women to then-Access Hollywood host Billy Bush leaked earlier this month, the businessman has been accused of other questionable behavior.

During an Entertainment Tonight segment filmed in 1992 at Trump Tower, the Republican presidential candidate can be heard making a lewd joke to a group of young girls. Trump would have been 46 years old at the time.

"You going up the escalator?" Trump asks a child, before saying, "I'm going to be dating her in 10 years, can you believe it?"
