Over the past two weeks, The Apprentice's golden girl, Amy Henry, has quietly stood by as co-star Katrina Campins single-handedly dragged her good name and reputation through the mud in the press. Well, now that Amy's been evicted from Trump Tower — The Donald fired her and sometime sweetie Nick Warnock on last Thursday's show — the 30-year-old Southern belle is free to strike back. But first, we gotta ask her what she did to p--s off another Apprentice diva — Trump's bespectacled media-relations lieutenant, Norma Foerderer.
TV Guide Online: Norma had it out for you! Which one of her snarky remarks stung the most?
Amy: The — "She's bubbly and energetic and has perfect teeth, but she's annoying" — comment was the harshest. (Laughs) I thought I had a good interview with her.
Amy: I think that Trump has a very conservative organization and I think that my energy and enthusiasm... were viewed as something that didn't really fit in their culture. TVGO: That said, do you wish you had done more research on Trump's empire?
Amy: That was the one question I was hoping wouldn't be aired. (Laughs) I totally stumbled. The lesson to be learned there, and something that I would always do in the real world, is be more than prepared. But we found out at 9 in the morning that we were going to be interviewing with his top executives, and by 9:30 we were there. So, I was completely unprepared.
TVGO: I probably don't have to tell you that Katrina's been talking smack about you to the press (including TV Guide Online) over the past two weeks. What's her beef with you? Did you guys have some kind of falling out after the show ended?
Amy: She is very disappointed that the producers cast her — she said casted — as the sex symbol and cast me as the good girl. And in her defense, it's very true. Katrina is one of the strongest, smartest women [on the show] and [viewers] didn't see that... She was angry at me because I got away with looking like the golden girl.
TVGO: She's saying you slept with both Nick and Bill...
Amy: The allegations are false and it's unfortunate. She could be using this time [in the spotlight] to publicize how smart she is instead of bashing me. It supports the stereotype that women can't put their emotions aside and focus on business.
TVGO: Did you call her and say, "Cut it out. Why are you being so petty?"
Amy: I haven't, not in the past week anyway. I did call her [after I watched some earlier] episodes where I could tell she was getting angry with me but she has never returned my phone calls. Actually, when the latest allegations of Bill and my romance [surfaced], which we both think is so humorous, Bill has made multiple phone calls into her as well, just to go, "What's the deal here?" and he never heard from her either.
TVGO: So, you're denying that anything went on between you and Bill?
Amy: Bill and I are great friends and there's nothing more than that.
TVGO: You and Nick did briefly date after the show, right?
Amy: We did... But we found out that we're better off remaining just friends. We're in different stages of our lives.
TVGO: Are you single?
Amy: I'm dating someone in Austin.
TVGO: Is he involved with the show?
Amy: Not at all. He's a builder.
TVGO: I heard that you are talking to Marquis Jet about a job. True?
Amy: They offered me a job in January... but things took off so quickly at that time [with the show] that I didn't feel like I could give 110 percent.
TVGO: What about now?
Amy: I'm entertaining various job opportunities. Last night after I was terminated, I went home and had about 100 e-mails, many of them job offers. I think there are many good things to come.
TVGO: What did you think about Omarosa blowing off her duties and then lying about it on Thursday's show?
Amy: I think that was more about Kwame. Because in the real world, would Kwame have an employee like that? No. He caught her in a lie and she should have been fired.
TVGO: Amen sister-friend.
Amy: He should have fired her, and I think that's a question that he'll have to answer in the boardroom. I'm planning on asking it.
Tomorrow, Nick weighs in on the Amy vs. Katrina debate — and reveals whom from the show he'd like to date next!
