She's definitely not with him.

"I'm like, 'Who are you? Are you serious?' " Fox tells PEOPLE Now of Trump, whom she got to know during season 14 of the reality series in 2015.

She says that "the statements that come out of his mouth on a continuous basis daily are a little disturbing, but that's on him. If that's how he's deciding to run his campaign, that's okay because #I'mwithher."

He may have found fame in Beverly Hills, 90210, but Ian Ziering has set his sights on another zip code these days. Ziering relocated to New York City to vie for the title on Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice. Besides being a clothing entrepreneur – though he's also Chippendales-approved and ready for any tasks that require shirtlessness – Ziering has one major edge on his opponents: Have they ever faced off against a throng of sharks? That is, not in the boardroom …

Follow Ziering on Twitter and check back for his exclusive blog posts on PEOPLE.com after each episode of
The Celebrity Apprentice.

After weeks of intense challenges, both physical and mental, I am thrilled that Leeza Gibbons was named the winner of The Celebrity Apprentice, proving that success can be achieved through positive leadership, grace and elegance. More on that shortly …

First and foremost I want to say that being a part of Celebrity Apprentice has definitely been one of the most difficult (and rewarding) things I have ever done in my life. It was such an amazing experience and an honor to have this opportunity to raise awareness about Epidermolysis Bullosa (EBKids.org), bring in more than $300,000 for this wonderful organization and receive countless Tweets and Facebook messages from families who live with EB.

Now, last night's finale was quite the show! I am thrilled that my friend Leeza Gibbons reigned victorious after all of these weeks of challenges. Though I was a part of Geraldo Rivera's final team, and I gave 150 percent to helping him win for his charity, I think that the right person came out on top. Leeza played the game with grace and a spirit that made this extremely difficult endeavor a little easier for all of us that got to compete with her this season. She is, pure and simple, a class act!

Celebrity Apprentice Recap: Joan Rivers Makes Her Final Appearance

Originally posted 02/03/2015 07:15AM

Monday night's episode of The Celebrity Apprentice ended in a display of gratuitous firing that felt ... well ... mean.

The first hour divided the teams to shill for King's Hawaiian buns. It was obvious from basically minute one of the task that Kenya Moore's "Baby Likes Buns" idea would be polarizing – offensive, really. And so Team Vortex lost, and Kenya was dispatched.

The second task, which saw the brief return of Joan Rivers – in what was probably her final on-air appearance – was oriented around crafting a jingle for Anheuser Busch's [Fill-in-the-Blank]-a-Rita beverages. Even in the face of an incredibly low musical bar set by Ian Ziering's "La Cucaracha" knock-off, Johnny Damon's blueser for Team Infinity could not compete against Vortex's catch "Nice on Ice" hook. And so, ironically, Infinity ... came to its end. Seriously, the whole team was fired.
