Kathie Lee & Hoda: La Toya Jackson Off Celebrity Apprentice
La Toya Jackson and Omarosa had been duking it out on Celebrity Apprentice this season until La Toya was fired from the show because she was too nervous to invite Omarosa into the boardroom with her. Trump told her on the show if she had brought Omarosa into the boardroom, it would have been Omarosa leaving and not her.
La Toya told Hoda Kotb and Dule Hill that she was thinking about bringing Omarosa into the boardroom but when she started with the “crocodile tears,” La Toya figured Donald Trump had fallen for her hysterics and wouldn’t kick her off. She also said she didn’t think the producers would let Trump kick Omarosa off the show because every good TV show needs a villain, even reality shows.
Even the confrontation leading up to the boardroom meeting was uncomfortable to watch and La Toya said it was even more uncomfortable to be there. She told Hoda she is not much of a confrontational person. She gets nervous when someone confronts her the way Omarosa did. She was taken advantage of, said La Toya, but she still tried to stay strong. In the end though, La Toya said she wishes she could do the entire competition over again.
