Plus, why RHONJ didn't prep her for the boardroom.

Teresa Giudice of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and Donald Trump
When you think of Donald Trump, two things probably come to mind: money and hair... although Teresa Giudice doesn't understand the public's fascination with the latter.

"I think his hair in person looks not bad," the Celebrity Apprentice contestant tells UsWeekly about her boardroom boss' 'do. "I think on TV it looks worse than in person. His hair doesn’t bother me; everybody talks about his hair."

However, something that did bug Teresa while filming was the show's intensity. "I did find Apprentice being cattier [than The Real Housewives of New Jersey] because here you are with a bunch of people you've just met for the first time, so you really don't care what the other person thinks of you. If you need to say something, then you'll just say it. Housewives did not prepare me for Celebrity Apprentice." We’re pretty sure she's directing that at you, Debbie Gibson.

But despite her clashes with the 80s teen queen, Teresa blogs that she eventually clicked with (almost) everyone. "One of the best parts about Celebrity Apprentice was meeting new people that became great friends of mine," she writes. "When you are locked up together and spend weeks and weeks with the same people, you get real close real fast. I really bonded with almost everyone on the cast, but my best girl was Aubrey O'Day."
