Melissa Cohen - who has fired from 'The Apprentice' last night (27.10.10) - has slammed her ''bitchy'' female colleagues for their unprofessional attitudes
Melissa Cohen was fired from 'The Apprentice' last night (27.10.10).
The 27-year-old food business manager was kicked off the BBC One reality show by business tycoon Lord Alan Sugar after being dubbed a "loose cannon".
However, the London-based businesswoman has slammed her "bitchy" female colleagues - who were criticised by Lord Alan's right-hand woman Karren Brady for setting a bad example to women - saying she was shocked at the amount of cat-fighting that went on.
Melissa exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I kept myself well out of the cat-fighting that went on. I'm not used to dealing with women who can't work in a normal way, so it was as much as a shock to me as it was to Karren to see girls carrying on like that.
"But when you get grouped with women from the ages of 23 to 31 who are working together in such an intense environment it can get quite bitchy. You've got to keep your head down and your wits about you."
The bold blonde also believed the self-appointed Stuart Baggs 'The Brand' - who also faced the firing line in the boardroom - should have been fired instead of herself.
She added: "Stuart had already been in the boardroom once and he was given a second chance. I wasn't given a second chance so I think it was a bad decision. He took the stance of not actually performing in the sales aspect of the task, but he was quite willing to criticise my effort. At least I gave it a go!
"He pointed out the negative aspects of what I was doing but didn't actually do anything himself. He can thank his lucky stars he's still in there. I would have liked to have seen him go."
