Debbie Gibson Interview with Newsday

Debbie Gibson accomplished a lot on this season of “The Celebrity Apprentice.”

She raised $50,000 for Children International by winning the challenge to launch the Buick Verano on the show. She argued with “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice. And she got Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider to sing “Baby Love.”

What the Merrick native didn’t get to do during the show, though, was work on her own projects — her music, her accessories line and her charity, the Gibson Girl Foundation, which she will raise money for with a gala at Oheka Castle Monday night with the help of “Apprentice” pals Snider, Lisa Lampanelli and Aubrey O’Day. “I was under the delusion that I could do music in between things, and I even had a piano in my room at Trump,” Gibson said, calling from her home in Los Angeles. “All the girls on the show laughed at me. They said, ‘You’re only going to use it as a clothes hanger.’ And they were right, there was no time … I only got to use it twice.”
