Celebrity Apprentice star and beauty queen Dayana Mendoza is firing back at co-star Lisa Lampanelli for a racial insult she allegedly used during a radio interview.

It all went down last month when Lampanelli appeared on Sirius XM, saying:

“I actually would love to see [Dayana] giving birth. She’s a sp*c! She’s going to do it f**king soon, anyway. She’ll be knocked up before the end of the week.”

Lampanelli is no stranger to using that slur in particular. Here’s a portion of a routine she did a few years back in which she says that and much worse:

Dayana tells the Huffington Post, “I understand that it’s Lisa’s job to make fun of people for a living. If poking fun at me can help her sell tickets, no problem.”

“I am happy to help her put food on her table. However, when she uses racial slurs, she is not only targeting myself but degrading an entire Hispanic culture.”
