Capri Anderson, the woman who was found in actor Charlie Sheen's hotel room the morning of his arrest last month, will speak out for the first time on Monday, Nov. 22 to ABC News.

Co-anchor George Stephanopoulos will interview Anderson live on "Good Morning America" (7:00-9:00 a.m., ET) on Monday morning, and correspondent Ashleigh Banfield will interview her for "Nightline" (11:35pm ET/ PT) Monday night.

Anderson, an adult-film star, was embroiled in the controversy when police officers arrived at New York's famed Plaza Hotel and found her locked in the bathroom of Sheen's suite, which had been trashed. Sheen was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.

In the ABC News exclusive interviews, Anderson will explain how she was hired to escort Sheen to dinner that night and how the night progressed to a violent end behind the Plaza's closed doors.

"He was, from the beginning of the night, very loud and he had no hesitations when it came to using derogatory language or cuss words," she says in the "Nightline" interview, adding that "towards the latter half of the night, it got really bad. He started yelling racial slurs.

"But it wasn't until he put his hands around my neck that I really thought to myself, you have gotten yourself in a bad, bad situation."

Anderson goes on to say that she was locked in the bathroom, fearing for her life, describing her reactions to press reports about Sheen's children staying on the same hotel floor.

"I'm not going to stand down and be completely walked over, mistreated. My whole life has been changed." she said.

"I think that this story and this treatment sends a message in itself and this is clearly something that's not right. It's not right to hurt people. It's not right to scare people. It's not right to carry on with such disregard for the people around you."

Charlie Sheen's lawyer Yale Galanter released a statement in response to Anderson's allegations.

"Ms. Capri never made any allegation of wrongful conduct on the part of Mr. Sheen the night of the incident. She has posted on her website that she was 'fine' after the incident but if you wanted to see more of her enter the web site for money," Galanter said. "We will defend this lawsuit vigorously and will never pay her a dime. These allegations against Mr. Sheen are completely false, and are an blatant attempt to cash in on his celebrity."

Tune in Monday morning to Good Morning America" (7:00-9:00 a.m., ET) or Monday night to "Nightline" (11:35pm ET/ PT) to hear Anderson's full account.
