La Toya Jackson thinks people should cut Donald Trump a break. Though the business mogul has a reputation as a rude and abrasive character, La Toya says that beneath it all, he’s a really nice guy.
La Toya has been a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice thrice, and thrice has been fired by Donald Trump personally. Still, there are no hard feelings on La Toya’s part, and she has nothing but glowing reviews for the eccentric Trump.
Though in public, Trump is very outspoken and controversial, La Toya says that he’s a very different guy privately. He’s even “sweet” and “kind,” if you can imagine it.
She tells The Hollywood Reporter:
“Donald is a very nice man. He’s very sweet. He’s very kind. I know there are people out there who think he’s prejudiced. Donald is not prejudiced whatsoever. His heart is good. He will put out a fire in two seconds. He speaks what’s really on his mind, what he’s thinking at the moment.”
La Toya has been making media rounds lately to promote her new show Life with La Toya, which airs Saturdays on OWN. Most public interest in her lately has mostly focused on her love life, particularly her seven-year marriage to manager Jack Gordon.
She admitted to being abused during her marriage to Gordon, and that even after they split, she still felt haunted by him.
“I never felt really free until, of course, he passed away [from cancer],” she said.
La Toya also said that she turned down Prince once upon a time.
“Prince did like me, yes, but I didn’t date him. We’ve gone roller skating, but not just with me – I think (friend) Kathy Hilton was there, my brother Michael was there, my sister (Janet) was there. So it was like a group.”
