'Celebrity Apprentice' Drama: Lisa Lampanelli, Victoria Gotti Trade Insults

Posted: Updated:

Victoria Gotti is competing on the new season of "Celebrity Apprentice" and holding nothing back when it comes to being a part of Donald Trump's reality show.

"It was bad," Victoria told me on the set of "New York Live." "I'm telling you, I would have rather taken eight Star Jones than one Lisa Lampanelli. I think everyone on that show would agree with me. She wanted this at all costs and let everyone know it."

Ex-co-host of "The View," Star Jones competed on last season's "Celebrity Apprentice" and famously went at it with "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Nene Leakes as well as other members of the cast. And not much has changed for this season's cast -- according to Victoria, tensions are higher than ever.

"I think Lisa was at the center of a lot of conflicts with everybody," Victoria explained. "One girl had the nerve to speak up and said, 'I'm just confused. Let us know who is the taskmaster who is running things,' then Lisa breaks down and starts screaming at everybody."

But Lisa isn't accepting Victoria's biting statements without a fair fight. She tells me that Victoria's work ethic is less than stellar.

"Victoria Gotti is lazier than Paris Hilton's left eye. Watch 'Celebrity Apprentice' to see the proof. It's caught on tape," Lisa said.

Star Jones did not return requests for comment.
