Stacy Rotner: The Apprentice Season 2 Contestant
by Derek Grosso
Where are you right now and what are you currently working on?
I live and work in Manhattan. I practice Securities Law at a firm here. Specifically, I work in the hedge fund group of my firm. I have been in talks to write a book and also host a radio show. Besides that, I have become very active in numerous charitable organizations.
How often do you speak with Mr. Trump or the other candidates?
Most of us are friends, but it's difficult to see each other on a frequent basis because we are all really busy and live in different cities. I speak to Ivana pretty often. I also speak with Raj, Kevin, Pam and Elizabeth once in a while.
Have you been to Long Island?
I have been going to the Hamptons every summer for as long as I can remember. I spend most of my weekends in East Hampton. It's my favorite place to spend the summer!
What is your favorite restaurant?
Il Mulino in NYC, and I love Harvest in Montauk and Nick & Toni's in East Hampton! I also love Sam's Pizza, also in East Hampton. It's the best!
Favorite TV show?
Sex and the City -- No contest!
Favorite personal quote?
"Things happen for a reason."
Anything else you would care to mention that we haven't talked about?
The best part of this experience has been using my name and "celebrity" toward positive ends, such as supporting worthwhile charities. I have recently been involved with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Dress for Success, the M.S. Society, Friends of the Israeli Defense Forces (FIDF) and American Friends of the Tel Aviv Art Museum (AFTAM).
