Tonight marks the premiere of Celebrity Apprentice season 5! And following the fireworks Nene Leakes brought to the show last year, it only made sense to add another fiery housewife to the cast.

Which brings us to Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice. In an interview with the NY Daily News, Teresa says the show is “all business,” while also making it clear there was some major cattiness going on amongst the women! You don’t say Tre.

“There was cattiness going on, working with girls,” admits Teresa, adding that it was even worse than the NJ Housewives. “Put a bunch of girls together, cattiness does happen.”

Teresa, who chose The NephCure Foundation, a charity working to cure kidney diseases, over her fake BFF Dina Manzo’s Lady Bug charity however adds that she got along well with the men’s team.

“I loved Arsenio (Hall),” gushes Tre. “He was awesome. I have to say, all the men were amazing — Clay Aiken, Arsenio, Adam Corolla, Paul Teutal — they were all amazing. I love, love, love them!”

Teresa who got into a huge blowout with fellow Italian Victoria Gotti however makes it clear she has no issues with “standing up” for herself. “I was not intimidated by anyone and I don’t get starstruck,” she says while admitting the board room was a stressful place. “If anyone was intimidating to me, it would be the Trump.”

And in a separate interview with UsWeekly, Teresa also discussed her RHONJ costars! When it comes to Caroline Manzo and Melissa Gorga, Teresa revealed she hasn’t spoken with Caroline since the very dramatic reunion “I have not spoken with Caroline. Melissa and I are a work in progress,” she says.

Teresa also promises the upcoming 4th season — set to premiere this Spring on Bravo — “will be a real eye-opener.” Whatever that means.

Moving on to The Donald a.k.a Donald Trump, who is now stating that the Real Housewives are dying to be on his show! When asked if other Bravo Housewives have approached him about doing the show, The Donald told reporters, “Almost all of them!”

He then went on to sing the praises of Teresa. “Teresa is on there and is great, as you know. She was a real piece of work and is terrific on the show. She’s very tough, very educated and she’s got her own ideas. She was a great character, no question about it.”

The new season of Celebrity Apprentice premieres tonight on NBC at 9/8c. A preview clip is below!
