I hope you're all enjoying watching the Celebrity Apprentice as much as I am! (I love love love the way Mr. Trump says my name: "Teh-ray-sa")
Unlike the RHONJ, we don't get advance screeners, so we don't get to see it until you do. I have to say, they don't do any "trick" editing... you really see exactly what happened when we were filming. They can't fit in everything that happened though. I'm shocked that they cut out a few of the nasty fights so far, but believe me, lots more are coming!
I love reading all the other cast member's tweets when it airs too... even Debbie Gibson's (yes, "THE Debbie Gibson" lmao...). I guess she thinks I have some problem not getting credit for my ideas. Uh, yeah I freakin' do! I worked my butt off on the show and a LOT of what I did doesn't get explained on camera. During the Ivanka window display task last week, they didn't show it but it was my idea to use Ivanka's sketches in the window to tell the story, and I think that was a pretty big contribution to us winning. They also didn't show that Debbie and I had a huge fight about it when I heard she was trying to take credit for it.
Once we get in the Boardroom, we have to be able to stand behind what we did. It's very important for Mr. Trump to know who did what. I went in open minded and gave everyone a fair shot, but I don't like fake people who talk nice to your face then bad about you behind your back, and I don't like people who try and take credit for other people's work. Yes, we're a team, but we all had specific jobs and contributions and it's important to show that.
So when you see us in the Boardroom this week, you know why I was mad at her already. As soon as she's project manager, she wants to call me out for not giving as much? Is she serious? Do you see how much Mr. Trump talks about me? You know why? Because Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka were there with us on all the tasks and saw who worked hard and reported it back to him. You're not getting to see a lot of my input (yet...) but Mr. Trump knew. I just want you to know the history of me and Debbie because it's not over yet. Stay tuned! (I might have to just change my name to Tiffany...)
For the Buick Verano challenge, I have to admit, I was shocked we beat the guys' team. We never, ever thought we were gonna win. They had 2 car experts on their team...one of them an Andretti! How do you beat that? But we also didn't see their presentation until it aired on Sunday. I have to say, I did like ours better. Especially when my girls came running out! I was soooo happy to see them! It was not easy getting them and my hubby out from Jersey and all dressed up and ready, and I think it was a huge part of our presentation's success!
They also didn't show that I was in charge of our Buick "bling branding" -- the Buick logo necklaces and rings we were all wearing. I got them from a fabulous Etsy shop called FrostYourself23 (www.etsy.com/shop/frostyourself23). If you need anything blinged out, they are the BEST!!! (Thank you FrostYourself!)
I was shocked at the double firing. We all were. Mr. Trump had never done that before. Adam Corolla is great. We really bonded during filming. I love him. And Michael Andretti is such a nice guy as well. You know how nice? He gave Patricia money for her charity when she lost because he felt so bad. Love him!
I got my first outfit with the green furry jacket from Posche (www.shopposche.com). The leopard dress I wore during the presentation was Yoana Baraschi. And the blue dress from the boardroom was by Eliza J.
