Joan Rivers' commentary is an LKL Web Exclusive.
She will be a guest tonight on LKL.
I WON!!! I WON!!! I WON!!! I WON!!! I WON!!!
I’m on top of the world today!!! I have nothing but nice things to say about everyone involved with the Celebrity Apprentice and I’m thrilled with Donald’s choice.
To be totally honest with you, I didn’t know I’d won until Donald said to Annie, “You’re Fired.” But the funniest line of the night came from my daughter Melissa who ran over to me after I won, saying, “I’m so happy!!! I feel like the mother of the bride!!!”
My grandson, Cooper, also had a great time at the finale and got to interview Donald for a school project. Guess what his question was? “How’d you get so rich?” Donald stopped and told him, “I worked very hard.” When it was time for Cooper to ask a second question he said, “I forgot what I was going to ask you.”
Nothing made me happier than seeing all of my friends from God’s Love We Deliver during the finale. Everyone who worked so hard during the silent VIP auction showed up. So far we’ve raised over half-a-million dollars for their cause (and this is during a recession!!).
My one and only regret is that in the Rivers’ house, Melissa won’t let me believe that charity begins at home.
HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!
Thank you to everyone who has sent me great wishes throughout the course of the show. Your support means the world to me!
