Everybody knows there are three things you don’t play with when you’re trying to cut somebody down: their children, their mama, or the dead. La Toya Jackson just violated that fighting rule on Sunday night’s episode of “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” when, according to Radar Online, she said some things to cast rival Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth that hit way below the belt.
The task last night was to perform a five-minute soap opera sketch for Crystal Light and La Toya was one of the team leaders. When Omarosa, who was on her team, had to leave rehearsal after learning a TV show was planning to release the 911 calls of her former fiance, Michael Clarke Duncan, falling ill, La Toya called her out, believing she was trying to sabotage the team by leaving. When the banter began, La Toya told Omarosa to be quiet, and as you can guess, she didn’t take that too well, schooling Michael Jackson’s sister on the definition of leadership and telling her :
“I will take you down — I will take you down if you disrespect me. I’m a grown woman, I run a company, you’re not going to talk to me like I’m 4 year’s old…I am not your staff – get it straight. You’ll never take me down boo. Next time you fix your mouth to tell me to be quiet, you’ll think again.”
Not one to take a comment like that even standing up, La Toya reportedly retorted back with some very narsty allegations, calling Omarosa “the most evil person I have ever met” and reportedly saying after she was (spoiler!) eliminated:
“Omarosa’s fiance passed away not long ago. He had a heart attack – I’m sure she gave it to him.
“She’s a conniving, scheming, cut-throat, probably pulled the cord on Michael Duncan Clarke … and I thought Mr. Trump wasn’t falling for that fake cry. Such a lie!
“When I met her I knew she was a snake, I should have handled her a little differently: They will always bite you.”
Whoa! It’s one thing to call a person a snake, it’s quite another to bring their dead loved one into the mix and insinuate they had something to do with their passing, especially when the premise of the argument is a fake reality show one is competing on for charity money. La Toya might be working hard to bring viewers over to her own upcoming reality show on OWN.
Check out footage of how the fight kicked off. Have you been watching these two go at it on “Apprentice”?
Last night, the ABC hit show “Dancing With the Stars” had it’s third elimination of season 14 and it didn’t work out so well for “The View” co-host Sherri Shepherd.
After she and her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, landed in the bottom two spots with fellow competitors Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower, Sherri said a tearful goodbye to the audience as the eliminated star for week 4.
“I just want to say thank you for letting me live a dream I’ve always had,” she told the hosts. “I had the most amazing partner, Val Chmerkovskiy. That thing that scares you the most … run towards it because it’s so amazing on the other side … I had the most amazing time.”
The judges said they were surprised to see Sherri and Val in the bottom spot. “All of us judges are in total shock,” head judge Len Goodman said “This is beyond … The standard is so high, anyone can be in jeopardy, anyone can be safe.”
Well it turns out Roshon and Chelsie are safe and will be returning to compete next week while Sherri will be sticking to her day job for now. At least she enjoyed it while it lasted.
Check out the video of her post-elimination interview here.
Did you follow Sherri on DWTS? Are you surprised she was cut so soon?
