Donald Trump's right-hand man is a woman. Sure, she's his daughter, but Ivanka Trump is also a Wharton-educated 25-year-old who knows what it takes to work for her dad.
He's been her boss since 2005, and she is currently his vice president of development and acquisitions. The Donald's daughter talks to PEOPLE about the show, the Rosie row and her dad's hair:
Are you qualified to hire and fire people?
I'm in that position in my daily life. Plus, I know my father better than anyone else. If you don't work well with (him), you don't stay long. It's as simple as that.
How do you feel about the Rosie feud?
I defend my father when I think he's right – and in this case, I do. But people are obsessed with this story!
Have you been to the tents on The Apprentice?
Yeah, they're bad! Those people must really want to work at the Trump Organization. If you're living in a tent for six weeks, it's not just about getting your face on television.
Do you like working on TV?
I've been offered tons of shows, (including) The Bachelorette. I'm flattered, but that in no way furthers my objective of being a great real estate developer.
So, we gotta ask – what's your take on your dad's hair?
Maybe I'm just used to it, but I love his hair! I've heard all sorts of crazy things, but I can verify with complete conviction that it's not a hairpiece. It is what it is!
