Jennifer is “in shock” after being fired; co-worker: “she was loud and obnoxious.”
The fallout from Jennifer Crisafulli’s post-Apprentice 2 real-life firing has left her “in shock,” she tells the New York Post. “I’m so hurt by it all. … My life has just made a 180-degree turnaround–I’m in shock,” she says. Those who knew Jennifer at previous jobs aren’t shocked. The Post rounds up a group of anonymous former co-workers who are eager to talk smack about her. A colleague at Spin says, “She was basically an office nightmare.” Another co-worker says, “She was loud and obnoxious. She would come into the room, and everyone would roll their eyes.” The Post says that “her close rapport with Spin editor Bob Guccione Jr. … earned her the nicknames ‘The Gucc Pooch’ and ‘The Spin-tern’ around the magazine world.” Former Spin fashion editor Jill Swid goes on the record to say, “She’s a wonderful person.” Elsewhere, with the exception of a link to an article about her firing, Jennifer’s web site doesn’t mention the controversy, but it does say she’s available for “hosting,” “appearances,” “promotions,” and other events.
