Although Cheryl Tiegs became the first person to get the boot during Sunday’s Celebrity Apprentice premiere, she’s not bitter about hearing the dreaded words: “You’re fired.”
“If someone says something mean or aggressive, I usually let it go over my head because it’s not the way I think, and it’s not me,” she tells me.
The former supermodel, 64, is just pleased that the experience has made her a more interesting person.
“I think beauty comes from within,” she says. “Part of this challenge is to learn, grow, step out and do new things. I think that creates a beauty in someone’s face because they’ve done something that most people haven’t done. You can walk around with that. You can go to a cocktail party, and people can tell that you’ve done something.”
Still, while she’s looking for conversation, the 6-foot tall, four-times-wed beauty is not an easy target for suitors.
“I’m single, and I don’t want to date someone who’s 6 inches shorter than I am.”
And no one can make her feel as if she needs to get a nip-and-tuck to remain competitive.
“I think beauty comes from within. Plastic surgery’s not part of it.”
