It never hurts to praise the boss, so when "The Celebrity Apprentice" contestant La Toya Jackson talks about the show, among the things she says is that Donald "You're Fired" Trump is really "a wonderful person."

"He'll probably kill me for saying this, but I think he just likes to come off hard sometimes, because he really isn't, not at all," she said of Trump, the real estate mogul turned reality TV star.

The latest season of "Celebrity Apprentice," in which performers compete in business-oriented games to see who will be an "apprentice" in Trump's real estate empire, premiered earlier this month with Jackson assigned to a women's team called "A.S.A.P." alongside music icon Dionne Warwick, television personality Star Jones and many others.
