once had a friend whose wife got pregnant. The couple considered an abortion
. They chose to carry the pregnancy to term and the baby made the friend very happy. The friend cried while telling this story to Trump. And that’s why he’s against abortion for everybody
. Because if not having an abortion supposedly worked out for some friend of Donald Trump’s, it will work out for you, ladies. Keep reading »
“By the way, who’s John Boehner? Check it out. Doesn’t his name sound like boner? Anyone notice that? … Hey, Snoop Dogg, Donald Trump and your ancestors had a lot in common — they owned real estate, and your ancestors were property! … This is my first time doing comedy!”

Obviously, I will be rooting for NeNe Leakes in the soon-to-start season of “Celebrity Apprentice.” Donald Trump has announced the new cast, and it’s pretty awesome: in addition to NeNe, there’s Meatloaf, David Cassidy, Dionne Warwick, Latoya Jackson, Jose Canseco, Richard Hatch of “Survivor,” Garey Busey, Lil Jon, Mark McGrath, Marlee Matlin, Lisa Rinna, Niki Taylor and Star Jones. But what’s even more interesting is who Trump didn’t pick. “We turned down 35 to 40 people,” Trump says. “We really qualify people.” [People]
So who got the big N-O? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »
“You know I can’t figure Jesse out. He married one of the most sought after women in the world. And yet, he’s such a low key guy. If you’re with him you say, ‘He’s a stiff.’ I can’t believe [Sandra’s] totally in love with this guy. He’s gotta be great in bed.”

It’s no secret that I have a rather low threshold for Rich Kids, especially Celebrity Rich Kids, who don’t get their elbows particularly dirty building up their resumes like the rest of us. A few months ago, I wrote a post grousing about how Ivanka Trump wrote a business advice book called The Trump Card; I found this super-obnoxious considering her life couldn’t be more different than those of the regular folks reading her book. Ivanka even admitted on “The View” that Anna Wintour offered her a job at Vogue upon graduation.
Last night Ivanka appeared with her dad, Donald, on “Celebrity Apprentice.” And I had the realization that I’d be eminently less annoyed with Ivanka if she undid some of her father’s damage. I’d like her to start with the Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA competitions. Keep reading »
A recent Frisky meeting almost came to blows when it came to the subject of Ivanka Trump
and her new business book, The Trump Card
. In one corner, there was me — I get enraged like a Pamplona bull at the slightest whiff of nepotism. Donald Trump
‘s daughter has a lot of nerve writing a business advice book, coasting through life with the last name “Trump”! But in the other corner we had sweet ol’ Catherine who said she really likes and respects Miss Trump. Ivanka may have been born Donald Trump’s daughter, Catherine said, but she’s still worked hard of her own accord! I wasn’t buying it.
I’ll eat my words today, though, after watching a clip of Ivanka on “Good Morning America.” I still think it’s silly that she wrote a business advice book, but I have more respect for Ivanka knowing she’s serious about following in her dad’s real estate footsteps. In this clip she explains how Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue, called her up on the eve of her graduation and offered her the job “a million girls would die for” at Vogue … which Ivanka turned down.
Still … way to keep the torch of nepotism burning, Anna. Keep reading »
Tiffany Trump isn’t a name you hear too often, even though she’s the offspring of Donald Trump, who is always in the news for one thing or another. Back in the early ’90s, you couldn’t escape the scandal turned marriage that occurred between Donald and then-wife Marla Maples, who is Tiffany’s mother. But when Marla and Donald divorced in 1999, she and her daughter sunk into relative obscurity. In this day and age of hyper-celebrity, it’s rare for an attractive, 16-year-old daughter of a celebrity to keep a low profile, especially when her über-wealthy father has his own reality show and pageants and has placed another daughter, Ivanka Trump, into the spotlight. I did some digging to find out what Tiffany has been up to and it came as no surprise that she’s already planning her business future. Keep reading »
You know how people who like to do pageants always say things like, “It’s not just about beauty. It’s about poise, speaking ability, and talent!” Well, that’s not exactly the case at the Miss Universe Pageant, which crowned Miss Venezuela last week. One of the show’s choreographers said shortly thereafter that, before the competition even begins, Donald Trump selects the top 15 contestants based on … looks. “At all the shows, [Trump] pops up the day before the telecast and we line up all the girls in alphabetical order,” Schwandt said. “[Trump] basically walks by and has an assistant who takes notes on all the girls. And it’s just kind of common knowledge that he picks six of the top 15 single-handedly. His reason for doing so, as he told me and he’s told the girls before, is that he left it all up to preliminary judging in the past, and some of the most beautiful women, in his opinion, were not in the top 15, and he was kind of upset about that.” [NY Post]
It seemed like a dirty little behind-the-scenes secret had been revealed. Only, now Trump is saying it’s not actually a secret. Keep reading »
