"He basically wanted to just get rid of her. He called her a 'piglet,'" an editor on the show at the time told the Huffington Post, adding that Trump allegedly once asked: "What is this? We can’t even get the hot one?" ― referring to Khloe’s older sister, Kim Kardashian West.

"He said, 'Why don’t we fire Khloe? She is a fat piglet,'" a second source at The Apprentice claimed. "Why did we get the ugly Kardashian?"

"What's the reason we can get her off [the show]?" another editor recalled Trump supposedly asking. "When they fired [her], it wasn’t on merit. It was on him not liking her."

Trump allegedly improvised the reason for Kardashian's firing by bringing up her court-mandated classes related to the reality star's DUI incident.
