She may not have made it to the finale, but when LaToya Jackson was fired on Celebrity Apprentice, she left the NBC reality show having raised a total of $65,000 for her charity, AIDS Project L.A., and gaining the respect of Donald Trump himself. In her official Exit Interview, LaToya reflects on her Celebrity Apprentice experience, and Star Jones and NeNe Leakes’ strategic move to have her eliminated from the competition.
LaToya Jackson surprised a lot of people during her run on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice — especially Donald Trump. Once thought of as a soft-spoken pushover with little to contribute to the team, in a few short weeks, Jackson managed to prove that there’s more to her than just her last name.
Though her team members didn’t exactly see things that way, Trump rushed to LaToya’s defense in the boardroom, pointing out that in more than one challenge, it was LaToya that impressed the executives the most.
Despite being “thrown to the wolves” by Star Jones and NeNe Leakes, whom she had just befriended, in her Exit Interview, LaToya Jackson says that she has no regrets and is happy that she had the opportunity to not only work with Donald Trump, but to carry on her brother’s legacy by raising so much money for AIDS Project L.A..
Hear what else LaToya had to say about her time on Celebrity Apprentice, and why she thinks Star Jones is not fit to work with Donald Trump in her Exit Interview:
Will Star Jones change her ways during the next challenge?
