Donald Trump versus Martha Stewart
The Donald doesn't take failure well, and when, in 2006, "The Apprentice" showed signs of ratings weakness, he went after Martha Stewart. Her show, "The Apprentice: Martha Stewart," was not highly rated, and Trump believed the spinoff dragged down his own show. He blamed her; she was upset and blamed him; then he wrote a scathing letter telling Stewart to take full responsibility for the failed show, talking about her ImClone fiasco, her daughter's "one-word statements" and more. Later, in 2008, though the event seemed to have simmered down, Stewart said Trump's actions were "unforgivable."
