Celebrity Apprentice Fires Keshia Knight Pulliam
The Celebrity Apprentice is back and already there’s drama on the horizon.
Former ‘Cosby’ kid, Keshia Knight Pulliam joined the cast of the business-savvy and competitive brainchild of Donald Trump, and poof she gets fired in the show’s season 7 premiere over what appears to be an uncomfortable conversation about her TV dad, Bill Cosby.
As project manager, Pulliam’s team was hustling to raise money for a bake sale and of course, her team members encouraged her to call Mr. Cosby in what seemed to be a no-brainer in terms of gaining advantage in the challenge.
Keshia declined. The team came up short on the fundraiser. Her team turned on her, specifically Kenya Moore, and the boardroom got awkward and uncomfortable.
Her reason for not calling? Simply because she hadn’t talked to Bill Cosby in years over the phone and felt uncomfortable calling to ask for money…even if it was for a charitable cause. Given current events, wonder if the artist formerly known as Rudy might have been wise not to hit the send button.
Watch the boardroom session below and let us know if you feel Trump firing Keshia was legit or a bit shady. By the way, we were also reminded by our sharp-eyed film/TV contributor she was first to flop on that celebrity dive show, Splash.
Can you blame her? Keshia took her response to the ‘Today’ show where she further explained reasons for not making the call and even gave some tea on the recent Cosby allegations.
