You could argue that the woman on the recording didn't really set up the man on the recording; instead, she let events play out in a way that seemed quite characteristic for the Clippers owner.

Donald Trump Taps Former 'Top Model' Contestant For Black Bachelorette Show

Comments (30)


Former 'America's Next Top Model' contestant and BET entertainment correspondent Toccara is is looking for love -- and Donald Trump is helping her with the challenge.

Last year, the TV One network teamed with the super rich real estate mogul for the reality show, 'Donald J. Trump Presents The Ultimate Merger,' starring his former 'Apprentice' vixen Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth. On the show, which featured R&B singers Ray Lavender and Al B. Sure as contestants vying for her affection, Omarosa had little luck finding a mate and refused to choose a winner.

Since Omarosa is settling down with 'Green Mile' actor Michael Clarke Duncan, there was little hope for the former 'Apprentice' star to look for love on season two of 'Ultimate Merger.'
Instead, they've chosen the Dayton, Ohio native and former 'Celebrity Fit Club' star (nee Toccara Jones) as the bachelorette looking to find her perfect match.

"The Ultimate Merger has been a huge success," Trump said. "Season 2 is going to be much bigger. I know great TV, and Toccara will make great TV."

The former plus-sized beauty, who was prominently featured in a 14-page spread in Vogue Italia magazine's legendary Black Issue, was romantically linked to music industry executive Michael Kaiser.

She has also serves a contributing style editor to Essence magazine and a spokesperson for Ashley Stewart clothing company.

The show is slated to air on TV One in the summer of 2011.
