Yesterday DONALD TRUMP reportedly told NY1 that 50 CENT’s new MTV reality competition show THE MONEY AND THE POWER is a rip off of THE APPRENTICE that will fail because it’s missing a key ingredient — The Donald.
But we digress. 50 Cent is just another in a laundry list of famous people Trump has picked fights with in recent years — albeit the only male and the only one who has been shot nine times. Perhaps he was not the smartest choice.
A few of our favorite Trump beefs — all involving strong business women — after the jump.
Trump vs. ROSIE O’DONNELL “She’s a slob. She talks like a truck driver…I was very happy when her talk show failed. The other thing that failed, and this was a real monster, and everybody was suing her was her magazine. Her magazine called ROSIE was a total disaster. So I loved it. I gloat over it. I think it’s wonderful because I like to see bad people fail.” [ET]
Trump vs. MARTHA STEWART “It’s about time you started taking responsibility for your failed version of THE APPRENTICE. Your performance was terrible in that the show lacked mood, temperament and just about everything else a show needs for success. I knew it would fail as soon as I first saw it — and your low ratings bore me out.” – from Trump’s open letter to Martha Stewart [People]
Trump vs. CAROLYN KEPCHER According to insiders, Trump decided to drop the f-bomb on his former right hand woman when she got too big for her britches: “She became a prima donna, Being on The Apprentice went to her head. She was no longer focused on business. She was giving speeches for $25,000 and doing endorsements.” [NYP]
