The Veronicas hit out at Celebrity Apprentice producers: 'Disgusting'

The Veronicas have taken aim at producers of Celebrity Apprentice, saying their portrayal on the show is ‘disgusting’.

Jess and Lisa Origliasso took on the role of project manager last night for Team Momentum, hoping to win money for The Brain Foundation, which is close to their hearts as their mum suffers from a rare neurological condition.

Last night, The Veronicas were reduced to tears on the show after Team Fun-Raisers claimed the electrician for the majority of the challenge, with the sisters fearing what it would mean for their chosen charity if they lost.

It turns out they were right and the sisters and their team did end up in the boardroom fighting for their place in the competition in front of Lord Sugar.


Now, they’ve taken to Twitter to slam the producers, calling out their portrayal as ‘entitled brats’.

“The fact they have edited this to seem like emotional manipulation and blackmailing people for sympathy is awful. Being gaslit on an edit over something so close to our hearts is truly beyond comprehension. We are grateful there was money made for all the charities involved,” they started.

“The fact you edited out all the facts, so we become entitled brats - expecting favours and using our mums condition for benefit is truly the lowest you could have gone.

I hope you pay your editors well for the souls they sell.”

In an open letter to the Celebrity Apprentice crew and production staff,, The Veronicas doubled down on their claims, saying: “Portraying us strong arming other team members and outwardly using our mother’s condition for sympathy and manipulation is disgusting.”

They continued: “What you have done to us is gut wrenching, soul destroying and the lowest thing you could ever do to us as women, daughters and carers.

“You have used us at the most fragile time in our lives. This was never a game to us, this is our reality we were fighting for. Hoping to turn our pain into something positive. Things don’t get better from here for us. So you win. I hope it was worth it.”
