Donald Trump choose his Celebrity Apprentice winner last night and with two TV personalities going head to head —it could have been anyone’s game, but former Entertainment Tonight Leeza Gibbons ended up winning over Geraldo Rivera.”I’m so excited. It’s kind of a cool moment! My feet aren’t touching the ground. I don’t know when I’ll come back down to Earth,” Leeza told E!News after her win.
“I was really lucky that I was able to be myself. People kept talking about a strategy. I think that the best strategy in life is just to work hard, care more and that’s taken me here in my career and it got me to this place in the competition. I think what happens is we get overwhelmed when we’re afraid and when we’re afraid we hold on tight and when we hold on tight, that’s really when we really lose control…. I tried to do this just saying, ‘I’m going to take a deep breath and be me.'”
Both are winners raising a ton of money for their charities and Geraldo actually raised more money during the season, but she made a whopping $324,000 for her charity stealing the crown.
