Vivica A. Fox recalls Ivanka Trump’s 'articulate’ comment : ‘She was insulting us’

On Thursday’s “For Real: The Story of Reality TV,” Vivica A. Fox talked about her time on “Celebrity Apprentice” and the condescending compliment Ivanka Trump made towards her and Keshia Knight Pulliam. “I'll never forget that when I did ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ and Ivanka Trump, she said, ‘Wow, you speak very well.’" Fox told host Andy Cohen. “I hate to say it, I don't think she knew at the time that she was insulting us. I really think that she thought she was complimenting us.” At the time viewers were disappointed by the backhanded compliment and several offended fans took to twitter to call out the veiled insult. One person wrote, “Really! IvankaTrump says to Keisha and Vivica ‘You're so articulate’ on Apprentice. Very offensive! How should they sound?” Even though her exchange with Ivanka was insulting and one she’ll never forget, Fox did credit the reality program with helping her become a better businesswoman. “Reality has been wonderful to me, to be honest with you,” Fox said. “It's allowed me to reinvent myself and go from like young ingénue to prove to everyone that I was a good businesswoman. That's where "Celebrity Apprentice" came into.”
