[ # ] The Celebrity Apprentices talk about Joan Rivers
January 19th, 2015 under Donald Trump, The Comedy Central Roast of Joan Rivers


Last Spring, Joan Rivers taped two appearances on NBC’s The Celebrity Apprentice and the first one airs tonight at 8p. On Friday at NBC’s TCA Winter Press Day, Donald Trump, Executive Producer Mark Burnett and the remaining contestants talked about the legend appearing on tonight’s episode.
Trump said that it might be one of the best in the show’s run because she helped him with making a tough decision. He described her work as his adviser as, “She was fantastic. She was strong. She was vibrant.”
The late comedian also appears on episode later this season, and it was filmed just days before she went in for that fateful surgery. Therefore, they had decide whether to air her episodes or edit her out. The production team decided to turn the episodes into a tribute to the past winner. In turn, they got to spectacular shows in her honor.
Now we know how the bosses feel about her, so how did the employees feel about meeting her. Vivica A Fox, who has been in the business for more than a few years, said they were all star struck when they saw her. Then she added, “When she walked in, we were all so very pleasantly surprised. It was like Joan!” What advice did the Season 2 winner have for them, the actress said, “She was very kind, very honest, and a hard worker, and that’s what she told us would make us successful on Celebrity Apprentice.”
Kenya Moore is never one who has a loss for words and she had several to say about Rivers. She said, “She’s this little powerhouse of a woman, very short in stature, but she was so big in heart, and she got around really well.” The Bravo Housewife added, “She made us all feel welcome, and she just really made us want to raise more money for our charities and give it all we have.”
Finally, for Geraldo Rivera it was a long due reunion for the two. Back in the early ’90s the two of them had daytime talk shows and taped next to each other. He was grateful to see his neighbor again, which made it so much more upsetting when she died just days later.
For now let’s not focus on her death, let’s focus on the great legacy she left behind including The Celebrity Apprentice.
