Tonight Celebrity Apprentice returns after yesterday’s season premiere which left Keshia Knight Pulliam fired for not reaching out to some big-name potential donors like Bill Cosby. Hello – Donald Trump wants publicity!
Keshia explained that she simply didn’t feel comfortable exploiting the connection and was disappointed it became a focal point in her ability to successfully complete the Pie Face task.
“I know ‘The Cosby Show’ is in reruns, and everyone thinks that we’re this family that has dinner every Friday night, but the reality was I hadn’t spoken to Mr. Cosby. I felt that it would be tactless, very rude to call someone and be like, ‘Hey, so, let me have some money right now,'” Keshia told The Today Show about her firing.

Despite Bill Cosby‘s legacy being besmirched by several rape allegations against him, Donald still insists Keshia should have made the call. When asked about the situation plaguing Cosby, Keshia responded tactfully, “I wasn’t there. That’s just not the man I know. So I can’t speak to it,” she said. “All I can speak to is the man that I know and I love.”
Kate Gosselin is already proving herself challenging to work with – as if that isn’t obvious. Kate defends her behavior on CA this season by insisting she doesn’t start drama and she’s a formidable competitor. Kate does admit that there is tension between her castmates – she butted heads with Brandi and Kenya, plus Donald himself complained about her. “I am a strong personality but I think what definitely will come out here is that I’m not a pot stirrer, I’m definitely not a drama-starter,” Kate insists to Us Weekly.
Moving on Kate, reportedly had a man with her on set during filming of CA. Despite Kenya hinting that something untoward was happening with Kate’s bodyguard Steve Neild, Kate is now dating 51-year-old businessman Jeff Prescott, who is CEO and co-founder of Dreamstime, an Internet-based stockpiler and supplier of digital images for media outlets.
It was Jeff’s delayed $10,000 donation Kate was reportedly crying into her pies over on yesterday’s episode. The couple has been together for a few months reports E! News. Jeff is a divorced father of three, who needs his head examined if he’s dating Kate, but the couple is reportedly happy and attempting to keep a very low-profile, although there were sighting of them in NYC while CA was filming.
Tonight is the second episode of Celebrity Apprentice, airing at 8/9c. Reality Tea will be live-tweeting, so make sure to join us!
