Another day, another leak from the set of The Apprentice, Donald Trump’s safe space to talk freely about not being able to get one of the hot Kardashian sisters on his show.


The latest revelation involves Khloe Kardashian, who appeared on Season 8 of the reality competition program, which aired in 2009. She was fired in the sixth week—not for her business acumen, but because she had to miss an episode for a court-ordered DUI class.

“I hate people who drive under the influence; I really do,” Trump said before firing her on the show. “When you told me [that Kardashian had received a DUI], I lost a little respect for you… If I had known that you were missing time away from the task because of a DUI, you would have never been on the show.”

(For context, Kardashian’s season also featured noted pieces of shit Jesse James and Dennis Rodman.)

But sources tell the Huffington Post Trump really fired her from the competition because he thought she was a “fat piglet” and “the ugly Kardashian.”

“He basically wanted to just get rid of her,” an editor on the show recalled. “He called her a ‘piglet.’” The editor said that Trump asked: “What is this? We can’t even get the hot one?” ― in reference to Kardashian’s sister, Kim.

A second source at “The Apprentice” confirmed the incident, using similar words to describe what Trump said about the Kardashians. “He said: ‘Why don’t we fire Khloe? She is a fat piglet. Why did we get the ugly Kardashian?’”

A third source, another editor, recalled the firing as being notable because of how personal Trump made it. “When they fired [her], it wasn’t on merit,” the editor said. “It was on him not liking her.” The editor said that Trump went to the staff and asked: “What’s the reason we can get her off [the show]?”

Kardashian said earlier this year she hated being on the show and learned nothing from Trump—makes sense!
