Trump to Carolyn: "You're Fired!"
Carolyn Kepcher has been one of Donald Trump's right hands and all seasons of The Apprentice. She has also worked for his organization for many years. Well, her ass been fired! Rhona Graff (yes the woman that calls the candidates in the morning) confirmed that she was let go earlier this week and no longer works for Trump.
NOOOO!!! Carolyn is my favorite. As long as she continues to appear on the show, I'm alright. I'm surprised to hear that she actually worked for him. I always thought she was some actress hired to pretend to be his right hand. Anyway, I hope Melania takes her place. She would look killer in a business suit.
The New York Post, which first broke the story, quotes an unnamed source who says Carolyn "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." The Post reports that when Trump tried to reach her recently, she was off on a trip to make a speech. Another time, while giving a tour of the pro shop at the Briarcliff club, she didn't seem to know the prices on any of the merchandise.
Despite the firing, Trump and Carolyn are reportedly still buddies. According to a Post source, "Trump told her what she had to do was take some time off and spend it with her family, and then get another job. They have a great relationship."
