Khloe Kardashian might have to go, but she's not going quietly.

The reality star was fired from Sunday's episode of Celebrity Apprentice – not because of anything she did wrong on the show, but because of a DUI she received in 2007.

By all indications, country star Clint Black was on the chopping block until Trump learned that Kardashian had missed some of the previous week's competition to go to a mandatory class regarding her DUI. "I hate people who drive under the influence," Trump said in the boardroom as he fired Kardashian. "I know three families who lost children to drunken driving."

Kardashian took to her blog to defend herself yesterday. "It wasn't because of my work ethic, it wasn't because I was slacking," she writes, "It was because of my DUI. I don't think I should have been fired for that reason alone. I just wish Mr. Trump would have handled the situation a little differently."

Big sister Kim Kardashian also wrote on her Web site in Khloe's defense. "I was a little disappointed at how she was given the boot," she writes. "She obviously made an awful mistake but definitely has taken responsibility for her actions and we are all very proud of her."

Kim ended her blog post on an upbeat note: "I'm glad she's home."
