Donald Trump repeatedly said he wanted Celebrity Apprentice contestant and Playboy model Brande Roderick ‘as his wife’ and talked about how badly he wanted to ‘f***’ her, three former Apprentice employees have claimed.
The remarks were allegedly just some of the many lewd comments the married Trump made about the model during her two stints on the show.
And when cameras were not rolling, his remarks about Roderick allegedly became more graphic, with him commenting on her ‘gorgeous and perfect body’ and ‘t***’, the sources speaking on the condition of anonymity told The Daily Beast.
Roderick had appeared on the show’s eighth season, the second edition of the Celebrity Apprentice, which aired in 2009 and the 13th season, which aired in 2013.
During that time, Trump made a host of lewd comments about the now 42-year-old model, according to the former staffers.
‘[Trump] kept proposing to her and telling her how beautiful she was,’ one employee told The Daily Beast while recalling Trump’s remarks during the eighth season.
‘When he invited her back for another season [of The Apprentice], he kept asking repeatedly again, saying he wanted her as his wife. It was typical Donald… [and] creepy.’
Another source recalled how Trump said during production of Roderick, ‘I would f*ck her, take her now,’ with the source adding ‘the marriage/flirting stuff’ was recurring.
At the time Trump was married to his third wife Melania, who he wed in 2005.
In an episode during the 13th season of The Apprentice that aired on NBC, Trump told Roderick ‘it must be a pretty picture, you dropping to your knees.’
At the time, Trump was seated across from contestants Roderick, Bret Michaels and Latoya Jackson during the show’s boardroom session.
Michaels described how Roderick had gotten on her knees and begged not to get fired.
‘Excuse me, you dropped to your knees,’ Trump asks.
