Vivica A Fox accuses Ivanka Trump of racist comment on Celebrity Apprentice

Vivica A Fox has accused Ivanka Trump of making a racist comment towards her during her time on Celebrity Apprentice.    

In a discussion about racial controversies on reality TV the actress, 56, recalled a time the former president's daughter, 39, told her: 'Wow, you speak very well.' 

Fox was speaking during Thursday's For Real: The Story of Reality TV when she told host Andy Cohen: 'I'll never forget that when I did Celebrity Apprentice, and Ivanka Trump, she said, "Wow, you speak very well".

'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.' 

Cohen replied: 'I don’t think she knows now.' 

Fox, who has starred in Independence Day and Empire, appeared on Celebrity Apprentice - hosted by the Trumps - in 2015. 

She added: 'She [Ivanka]  was like, "Oh wow you guys are intelligent".

'I'm going to say, when the show aired, Twitter went crazy, like, "What does she mean?"' 

Ivanka has not commented on the claims.

Another said: 'Ivanka Trump: you certainly are an articulate group… Said after hearing Vivica and Keisha speak. #Girlbye #CelebrityApprentice #thatsracist' 

In a discussion about racial controversies on reality TV the actress, 56, recalled a time the former president's daughter told her: 'Wow, you speak very well.'

In a 2005 interview Donald Trump himself had suggested racially dividing contestants, telling Howard Stern: 'It would be nine blacks against nine whites, all highly educated, smart, strong, beautiful people, right? Do you like it?' 

Actress Vivica last week weighed into the relationship drama surrounding Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson, after it was alleged he 'hooked up' with model Sydney Chase in January.

Appearing on the latest episode of Cocktails With Queens, actress Vivica did not mince her words as she gave her two cents on Tristan's alleged behavior, saying: 'It's time for Khloe to stop being a damn doormat for Tristan.'
