Apprentice Kendra’s reps made “diva-like demands,” but she says she’s “low-maintenance”

Donald Trump’s most recent apprentice, Kendra Todd, has a team of representatives who are making “diva-like demands … for [her] self-promotional appearances,” the New York Daily News’ Lloyd Grove reports.

For example, her people requested the following for an event that took place over the summer:

“a limo to and from the venue, a red carpet with barricades, ’4 attractive people’ to work the door, three bottles of alcohol and a ‘large, controlled, roped-off VIP section with Security (who will need to be briefed on potential exit strategies and worst-case scenarios beforehand).’”

The message from her reps also said that she was to be treated like a superstar: “Under no circumstances is anyone permitted to enter the roped-off section before Kendra’s arrival to that section first.”

According to Grove, those “grandiose demands apparently didn’t sit well with Rubenstein Public Relations, which dropped her as a client after three months.” But Kendra says that the requests were just made on her behalf, as she’s “low-maintenance.” She tells Grove,

“I don’t know where you’re getting that information from. I have a lot of capable people who have done a lot of amazing things for me. I had a great relationship with Rubenstein, and I’m sure they made many requests on my behalf, without my knowledge. I’m flattered if they went after those opportunities for me.”

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
