NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Victoria Gotti got the axe on Sunday’s “The Celebrity Apprentice,” but while she didn’t make it very far in Donald Trump’s celebrity reality competition on NBC, the mob daughter said she has an inkling of who is going to win.
“Clay Aiken — put your money on him,” she told Access Hollywood on Monday.
But why the “American Idol” Season 2 runner-up for her pick?
“Clay is smart. Clay is good,” Victoria said. “He’s strategic… He can be b****y if he needs to be, but thankfully he doesn’t have to be… He focuses on the game, but he holds his stuff for the end.
“He’s gonna take this,” she added.
In related news, Victoria’s early days are set to be documented in the feature film, “Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father,” about the Gotti family, and starring John Travolta as mob boss John Gotti Sr.
On Monday, Victoria told Access they are still looking to have Lindsay Lohan on board, playing a young Victoria.
“I’m told just the other day that she very well may [be playing me]. I’m not the casting director, but I know that, I’m hearing the same rumblings that you are, and yes they are true. The rumors are definitely circulating and they are in the planning stage and the signing stage and what have you,” she said.
Victoria said the film will start shooting in the fall, and John is eager to jump into his role.
“I know John Travolta is really excited and he’s going to do a phenomenal job,” she said. “He really is. He’s been all over this role since he got it and they’re just getting ready to break down.”
“The Celebrity Apprentice” airs Sunday nights at 9/8c on NBC.
