Last night was the season premiere of “The Celebrity Apprentice” and Keshia Knight Pulliam was the first to be fired. The reason being, she did not seek her TV dad Bill Cosby for cash. We all remember Keisha as Rudy on “The Cosby Show” who was the youngest Huxtable. The 35 year old insist that the relationship you see on the Cosby Show is not the same in real life. Donald Trump fired Keisha because he believes she failed as a project manager because she did not reach out to Cosby. This is the reason why she did not reach out to Cosby. “I have not talked to Bill Cosby on the phone in I don’t know how long,” she explained to Donald Trump. “For me to pick up the phone having not talked to you for five years, except for when we run into each other for a Cosby event, I feel that’s not my place to do.”
Trump did not agree with her decision. “You have this tremendous guy with this tremendous amount of money. And with one phone call you could have won this whole event,” he told her.
“I really believe, if you’d called that gentleman, he would’ve helped you, even if you hadn’t spoken to him in years,” he added. “Because you were an amazing team with one of the most successful shows ever, so I think it would have been a very quick call to make for charity…Keshia, you’re fired.”
This season of “Celebrity Apprentice” was filmed a year ago and before the sexual abuse allegations against Bill Cosby started making headlines. Trump took to twitter to explain his decision after the show aired last night. “This show was taped just before the terrible Bill Cosby revelations came to light. She still should have asked him for money-goes to charity,” Trump Twitted!
