Actress Holly Robinson Peete Confirms Rumors That Trump Did Call Her The N-Word While On ‘Celebrity Apprentice’


Actress and former contestant of ‘ Celebrity Apprentice’ Holly Robinson Peete has spoken out for the very first time upon rumors that number 45 called her the N-word!

Holly recently appeared on the internet radio series with Sirius XM ‘ Urban Views’s The Karen Hunter Show’ where she discussed how her race was a weighing factor of her time on the show and kept her from winning season three.

Holly described her original thought of Trump by saying, “I found him to be kind of piggish and bullish and stuff,” but I didn’t find him to be just this—who he is now, I did not see that.” That wasn’t until after the season concluded.

She explains upon the season finale of the show that the producers were deciding between her and Bret Michaels.

“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 recalls seeing Trump talking behind her back dramatically. She says he was “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.”

Holly goes on to state that the rumor had been circulating for over a decade. “How could anybody believe that he wouldn’t say something like that? I firmly believe he probably uses that language all the time. And then by the time it sort of started resurfacing, I didn’t even really address it too much because I felt like, what difference is it going to make? People have accepted the things that he said that are so vile about so many other people, what difference is it going to make if he said that about me?”
