“… I’d been working on teams all my life, but I’ve been nice, and I’ve been kind and I’ve been good. So I thought I’d bring something to ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ I’m going to let America know that you don’t have to be backstabbing, mean spirited in order to win a challenge.”

On “Access Hollywood Live,” she said that she would have had a better chance if she was working on the men’s team.

“Well, the women’s team — they were rather tough to work with,” she told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover. “I liked the men’s team a lot and still keep in touch with a lot of them.”
