Just recently booted off the reality TV series ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ former supermodel Cheryl Tiegs airs out her feelings about Donald Trump’s show and says that it is “mean-spirited.” And Tiegs says it just might be the best thing that could have happened to her on the show.
Chery Tiegs appeared for a post-exit interview on “The Wendy Williams Show,” following her eviction from Donald Trump’s NBC competition show ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ on Sunday night. Model-actress Cheryl Tiegs was vocal about her opinion of the series.
“It was very mean-spirited, and I didn’t like bullying in high school, let alone as an adult,” the 64-year-old Cheryl Tiegs told the talk show host.
Wendy Williams then laughingly asked the former ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ star if she had ever seen the show, which is blatant for its backstabbing and celebrity breakdowns. Cheryl Tiegs admitted that she has, but wanted to try something different in her go-around, saying, “I’d built up 12 companies in my life, and been on the cover of Time magazine three times, not for my beauty but because what I was doing was newsworthy around the world,” Tiegs said, taking note of her accomplishments.
“And I’d been working on teams all my life, but I’ve been nice, and I’ve been kind and I’ve been good. So I thought I’d bring something to ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ I’m going to let America know that you don’t have to be backstabbing, mean-spirited in order to win a challenge,” added Cheryl Tiegs. With this, the audience applauded Tiegs for her uprightness.
During the premiere of ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ on Sunday night, the former model was thrashed by her teammates for not being aggressive enough in her approach to the sandwich-selling task.
“To be honest with you, I think I did as good a job as I could. I did a lot of things that I don’t think people recognized. I don’t think this environment was right for me, and I’m as smart as any of the women here, but I think there was a toughness that they had that I don’t ever want to have,” Cheryl Tiegs told cameras upon her departure from ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’
Additonally, Tiegs suggested that she may have won ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ if she were on the men’s team. In another interview with Billy Rush and Kit Hoover on “Access Hollywood Live,” Cheryl Tiegs told the hosts, “Well, the women’s team — they were rather tough to work with. I liked the men’s team a lot and still keep in touch with a lot of them.”
