Following a week of numerous sexual assault allegations and the continued fallout surrounding the leaked Access Hollywood tape, Donald Trump has now been accused of making "disparaging" remarks about former Celebrity Apprentice contestant Khloé Kardashian.
The alleged remarks were delivered "off camera" ahead of Kardashian's removal from the series, according to sources who spoke on Trump's behavior to the Huffington Post Friday. "He basically wanted to just get rid of her," an editor on the series told the Post. "He called her a 'piglet.'" The editor also noted that Trump openly complained about not being able to get Kim on the show, using the following language:
The editor said that Trump asked: “What is this? We can't even get the hot one?" ― in reference to Kardashian's sister, Kim.
Another source added that Trump referred to Khloé as "the ugly Kardashian" and a "fat piglet." According to a third source, also an editor on the series, the eventual firing of Kardashian "wasn't on merit" but was due directly to him "not liking her." Trump blamed his decision on Kardashian's court-mandated DUI classes in Los Angeles, but sources told the Post Friday that the Republican presidential candidate "improvised" that reason.
During an appearance on Chelsea Handler's Netflix talk show in July, Kardashian opened up about how much she despised being on the show. "I was stressing myself out and then dealing with [Trump] and about to be fired," Kardashian told Handler. "I'm like, 'Fuck you, I don't want to do this!'"
