Holly Robinson Peete admits she wasn't "Miss Congeniality" on 'The Celebrity Apprentice,' as evidenced by the conflict between her and Cyndi Lauper. But she loves and admires her former cast-mate.
The runner-up explains on 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 11PM ET on TBS) that the show is "a lot harder than it looks on TV. You have a very small window of time to complete these tasks. They put you with people who get on your last nerve."
Speaking of which, she says, "There's a little learning curve with reality [TV] ... Sometimes the editor is the writer. If you give them eye rolls and neck twists, they will cut to it. But I love Cyndi ... I really do respect her." The actress then went on to compare Lauper to Sly Stone, Peete's favorite musical icon.
