“Celebrity Apprentice” 2013 had some of the worst fireworks seen on the show since it began when La Toya Jackson said Omarosa’s fiance — Michael Clarke Duncan — died from a fatal heart because of her. Tuesday morning reports were published that Omarosa is now suing La Toya for “false, vicious and defamatory” statements made about the death of her late fiance.
La Toya was on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” with Andy Cohen. The fired “Celebrity Apprentice” contestant defended her comments made about Omarosa.
“Do you regret what you said at the end? About the life support and Michael Clarke Duncan?” Cohen asked.
“I must have said, ‘I wouldn’t be surprised if … and that was a statement, because everybody knows,” La Toya answered. “She tried to sabotage everything [on 'Celebrity Apprentice'] … she looks out for her reputation real well, she really does. All the team members felt they never met a person like that before. And of course, I haven’t!”
La Toya shocked Omarosa as well as others when she shot a low blow insult at her “Celebrity Apprentice” enemy by saying it was her fault that Duncan died late last year.
Donald Trump fired La Toya because she didn’t bring Omarosa back into the boardroom — which he detected as a move made on her part because deep down she feared having a real confrontation with her. La Toya denied such speculations, telling Trump that she believed he fell for her fake tears when she talked about trying to halt the release of Duncan’s 911 tape from his heart attack.
“All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” airs Sunday nights on NBC at 9 p.m., ET/PT.
