Apprentice 3’s Stephanie “built a great relationship” with Gene Simmons.
Donald Trump’s latest Apprentice 3 victim, Stephanie Myers, reveals in a interview that she’s remained in close contact with someone she met on the show. It’s not Chris, who she says “would follow me into my bedroom and just keep yelling. I was like, ‘Get out of here. You are 21! Leave me alone. Go worry about something else.'” Instead, it’s a man she met during a task: Gene Simmons. And his tongue. She says, “Gene Simmons was great. I still talk to him to this day. We built a great relationship. I just knew that there was no way in heck I could go home and not have seen the tongue. So that in itself was an experience.”
