'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' Sisters Fight Trump's Fire with Fire
When Donald Trump fired Khloe Kardashian on Celebrity Apprentice, he didn’t know he would be the next target of the Kardashian girls – on their blogs.  Khloe’s elimination from the competition stunned a number of viewers, as well as the contestants.  Her reaction to the incident was previously reported, but her sister Kim had some things to say about what happened as well. 

“I was a little disappointed at how she was given the boot!” Kim wrote on her official blog.  “Trump fired her after saying he'd lost respect for her because she previously had a DUI.  She obviously made an awful mistake but definitely has taken responsibility for her actions and we are all very proud of her.” 

Khloe was kicked off Celebrity Apprentice after missing a day to complete one of the tasks assigned to her.  Trump found out that she had to attend DUI classes, telling her that she wouldn’t have been allowed on the show if he knew beforehand.  He said: “I hate people who drive under the influence, I know three families who lost children to drunken driving,” which led to the elimination of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star.

But Donald Trump might want to eat his words.  Khloe noted how Miss USA 2006 winner Tara Conner had engaged in underaged drinking and cocaine use before, but Trump let her keep her crown anyway.  “I find it weird that he can forgive and take back Tara Conner but he can't do the same with me?!” Kardashian exclaimed.  “The things people do for ratings!”

Despite that, she still has her family backing her up.  “I am so proud Khloe made it this far!” Kim continued.  “The reason she got fired had nothing to do with her work ethic or her performance on the show!” 

As for Khloe, she’s not giving up on her former Athena teammates just yet.  “In all honesty, I'm rooting for Natalie Gulbis and Joan Rivers to go all the way,” she announced.  “I guess we'll all have to wait and see who makes it.”
