Holly Robinson Peete Says Donald Trump Called Her The N Word On ‘Celebrity Apprentice’
While on The Karen Hunter Show on SiriusXM Urban View, Holly Robinson Peete, who competed in season 3 first said that Donald Trump hadn’t made his claims against Barack Obama not being a U.S. citizen, or she wouldn’t have gone on the show. She added:
“He hadn’t really quite started that whole birther thing yet.”
“It was a very interesting experience. It was a trip and kind of messy and stuff. I found him to be kind of piggish and bullish and stuff, but I didn’t find him to be just this… who he is now. I did not see that. So, I think the combination of power and corruption and all that stuff just made him go to that next level.”
While she said he was “kind of lovely” in person, she heard different things from others about what he allegedly said behind her back.
“Shortly after the finale, rumors started going around that he had tossed out an N-word in referring to me. And I was like, ‘Huh?’ And then when the producer told me when it happened during the finale. I remember the moment.”
“I wasn’t in earshot, but I could see them deciding between me and Bret Michaels. There was a moment where [Trump] was talking with producers and they’re really animated and that was when I heard that he said, ‘They want the N-word to win.’ Because I guess the network wanted me to win or me to be chosen, and Trump wanted Bret. And the quote was, ‘They want the N-word to win.’”
She also said she thinks he frequently uses that type of language.
“You know, how could anybody believe that he wouldn’t say something like that? I firmly believe he probably uses that language all the time.”
As for why she didn’t speak on the rumors sooner, she said she didn’t think it would really matter.
“By the time [the rumors] sort of started resurfacing, I didn’t even really address it too much because I felt like, what difference is it going to make? People have accepted the things that he said that are so vile about so many other people, what difference is it going to make if he said that about me.”
Her claims come after Claudia Jordan also alleged Donald Trump made racial comments toward her while on the reality show.
