Apprentice Jennifer loses her real estate job over “Jewish fat ladies” comment.
Real estate agent Jennifer Crisafulli was fired by Donald Trump on Thursday’s The Apprentice 2 episode, and now she’s lost her job with Prudential, where she worked as a real estate agent. A VP for the company told the Albany Times-Union, “We do not intend to have an individual in our organization who subscribes to this point of view. They are not wanted. They are not needed.” He’s referring to her comment during the episode about two patrons in the women’s restaurant. She said, “It was those two old, Jewish fat ladies. Really. They were like the pinnacle of the New York jaded old bags.” Jennifer told the Times-Union that she’s part Jewish, and said, “I feel terrible about this. I hope people don’t think about me in the wrong way. … It’s bad. It’s bad. It’s all about the editing.”
