Donald Trump blasted Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore as ‘the most evil woman I’ve ever met in my life’ before firing her on the Celebrity Apprentice, MailOnline can reveal.
Fiery Kenya, 43, appears on the new season of the NBC reality show and had a spectacular fall-out with actress Vivica Fox during filming – in which she tweeted a message from Vivica’s phone complaining about the menopause.
She also had blow-ups with fellow contestants, Cosby Show actress Keshia Knight Pulliam and Brandi Glanville, a source confirmed.

Kenya has had explosive rows with her Real Housewives co-stars – during one with Porsha Williams during a recent reunion show, where Wiliams grabbed her by the hair and dragged her across the floor.
This led to Williams’ arrest on a battery misdemeanor charge following the incident in April.
Upset: Real estate mogul Donald Trump lashes out at Kenya Moore on the new season of Celebrity Apprentice
Star Magazine has already called Kenya ‘The Most Hated Apprentice, citing a show insider who claimed ‘Kenya is rude and a holy terror to the crew. She demands special treatment and extra days off and refuses to use the show’s stylists. Instead, she brings in a huge entourage, and they’ve completely taken over the set.’
The insider also claimed she has become close with another reality star, Kate Gosselin, adding: ‘Given that they’re both overbearing divas, it’s kind of a shock that they’re so close. But, they’re tight and refuse to befriend anyone else’
And we’re told that Mr Trump was left furious by the Detroit-born former beauty queen’s behaviour on the show during filming over the past few months.
A source said: ‘Kenya was fired and it was really one of the most brutal firings ever seen on The Apprentice.
‘She stole Vivica Fox’s cell phone and posted a message on Twitter complaining about the menopause pretending it was from Viv.
‘And that’s not forgetting her rows with Brandi and Keisha. Mr Trump had truly had enough of her by the time it was time to fire her
‘He told he ‘You’re the most evil woman I’ve ever met in my life’.
MailOnline has found a tweet seemingly posted on Vivica’s Twitter account, that reads: ‘This menopause id (sic) killing me I cant think straight, Im acting a damn fool half the time 50 just isn’t sexy.’
Fury: Kenya Moore left Celebrity Apprentice co-star Vivica Fox furious after taking her cell phone and tweeting a message about the menopause
The tweet can no longer been seen on the Kill Bill’s Twitter account.
According to sources, once Vivica, 49, realised that Kenya had done, she deleted the message, she erupted in fury, with one saying: ‘It was World War III on that set. Vivica cursed her out so bad that the entire set was speechless, even Kenya.
And it led to Mr Trump’s tongue-lashing before he uttered his trademark phrase ‘You’re Fired’.
The source said that Kenya was humiliated by Mr Trump’s humiliating putdown, adding: ‘If she was hoping to change her image or get the benefit of the doubt before taping this show, she can forget that.’
The new season’s Celebrity Apprentice contestants include: snowboarder Jamie Anderson, talk show hosts Leeza Gibbons and Geraldo Rivera Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, comedian Gilbert Gottfried, comedian, 90210 actor Ian Ziering, baseball player Johnny Damon, Jonas Brother Kevin Jonas, actor Lorenzo Lamas, Sig Hansen from The Deadliest Catch and former football player Terrell Owens.
