Holly Robinson Peete recently sat down for an interview on SiriusXM Urban View’s The Karen Hunter Show, where she revealed that Donald Trump called her the n-word during Celebrity Apprentice.
She explained that she went on the show after being asked by producer Mark Burnett to be on the show to raise money for her charity. Holly stated that she found Trump “to be kind of piggish and bullish and stuff,” and she added, “But I didn’t find him to be just this—who he is now, I did not see that.”
It wasn’t until the finale of the show, where she lost to Brett Michaels, that she heard Trump call her the n-word. She stated, “Shortly after the finale, rumors started going around that he had tossed out an ‘n-word’ referring to me. 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.”
Holly then recalled Trump “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.”
