At one time she may have been “Gone With the Wind Fabulous,” but now Kenya Moore‘s just gone. Donald Trump finally fired the former Miss USA on The Celebrity Apprentice‘s two-hour episode Feb. 2, but not before Moore and Vivica A. Fox had it out in what was arguably one of the show’s best fights ever.
Moore – placed on Team Vortex in a switcheroo by Trump – quickly sunk her team once the former pageant queen chose to be project manager for the week’s task: to create a viral photo ad campaign for King’s Hawaiian breads.
Moore’s brilliant idea? A play on words juxtaposing the King’s “buns” with a woman’s “buns.” Sounded okay at the start — until Moore herself became the lead model because her derriere was declared “world class” by Rivera. Fox no doubt took offense to Moore’s decision, but not because the ads were a bit out-there. “I was in a hit movie called Booty Call. My assets have grossed over a billion dollars in the box office. But right now your lopsided booty is on trend, so let’s let you have this moment,” Fox sniped.
And after that, the hits just kept on coming. Once the King’s clients deemed their ad the worst and the trio gathered in the boardroom, Moore tried to save face. Her best defense? Fox couldn’t give the project her all because she was menopausal, claiming that Fox tweeted that fact herself.
Of course, Fox denied tweeting such a thing, and accused Moore of stealing her phone to tweet the message herself. It was at that point that the family Trump really dug into the former beauty queen. “Why are you so nasty to everyone?” wondered Donald. “I’m not nasty to everyone. I have not been nasty to her. That’s not true, Mr. Trump,” Moore claimed. Donald Trump, Jr.‘s zinger: “You just said she was menopausal on national television!” Later, Don, Jr. just couldn’t help himself and looked at Fox’s feed. Indeed, he found the tweet, reading it aloud for the boardroom.
The Trumps sided with Fox as she accused Moore of stealing her phone. “That’s just the kind of person she is. You’re fake — you’re phony,” Fox slammed Moore, later calling her a “dirty ass bitch” and a “toxic trick.”
Moore’s firing wasn’t the only one on Monday’s episode. Fellow Real Housewives star Brandi Glanville, Johnny Damon, and Ian Ziering — the bulk of Team Infinity, save for Leeza Gibbons, who escaped the boardroom after the team was asked to create a jingle for Anheuser-Busch. Thrilled when nemesis Ziering got the boot for his “La Cucaracha” jingle that wasn’t actually a jingle, Glanville was as shocked as viewers when Trump asked her to sit down and get prepared for another firing. In the end, Glanville and Damon were left to fight it out, but when Glanville wouldn’t place blame on Damon, Trump cut them both loose.
