you want to stick around. how is barron doing? >> barron's really great. >> larry: just turned 4? >> just turned 4. >> larry: good boy? >> good boy. >> larry: preschool? >> yes. >> larry: is he a little donald? >> yes. >> larry: is he firing anybody? >> yes, he's firing the housekeeper and nanny. >> larry: let's get right into things. jesse james, sandra bullock's estranged husband. he was on "celebrity apprentice." >> i got to know him well. he was sort of a nasty guy. clint black, the great country singer, just couldn't stand him and others. sometimes, for instance, with bret, everybody loved bret, bret michaels going through a tough time right now. but people didn't like jesse. a lot of people. he was sullen but he was tough. >> larry: are you surprised that
he and sandra had adopted a baby? >> nobody knew she had the baby three months already. i wish her well. she's very happy. she should enjoy every moment with it because they grow up so fast. >> larry: do you feel sorry for her? >> actually, it's not her fault, you know. >> larry: do you feel sorry what's happened to her? >> of course, yes. when marriage falls apart. it's a bad thing. it's not great for anybody. and i just hope she keep herself busy with a child and go for a life that she deserves. >> larry: all right, jesse, let's take a look at one of jesse's appearances on last season's "celebrity apprentice." watch. >> i mean in one way, i respect that you haven't used your wife. in another way, it's a little disappointing that you haven't brought her in, you know, it is for charity. in one way, i'm a little bit disappointed. and i'm feeling that even if you are in the final two, you probably wouldn't. so, jesse, you're fired.
great job. >> yeah. thanks. >> really great job. >> thanks. >> next season. >> i wanted to come, do a good job and show that i could do. -t. i think i accomplished that. >> larry: were you egging him on to bring on miss bullock? >> well, i was surprised he didn't. certain tasks, some bring on others. jesse decided not to. in one way, i respected it, in other ways, i thought he could have gotten a lot of money. he had the brainstorm, i can tell you that. he didn't want to bring sandra in and i was really surprised. frankly, now in retrospect, maybe he didn't want to bring her in because he had somebody else on the side. who knows, right? >> larry: sandra has filed for divorce now, "people's"
exclusive cover story, including an extraordinary statement from him. we wanted to give you part of what jesse had to say and his reaction. here's jesse james' statement. "my whole life has been full of hard decision. the decision to let my wife end our marriage and love lewis, not having him around to hold has left a huge hole in my heart. sandy is the love of my life, considering the pain and december station i've caused her it would be selfish not to let her go. right now, it's time for me to beat the addiction that has taken the two things i love in my life. i ask that you please judge sandy for the things i've done wrong. she's done no wrong. she's been an amazing wife and friend for the six years we've been together. smart idea to say that? >> i also know it's too late. i know her. i made two movies with he. she asked if i play myself.
and i did. i said, can i do it in ten minutes? she said, yes. and i did. i got to know her. she's an absolute sweetheart. just the nicest person. just can't imagine what happened. >> larry: have you talked to her since? >> i have not talked to her since. >> larry: have you tried to contact her? >> no, look, she's a terrific woman. and he's a nice guy. >> i met her. >> see, melania is much more liberal, if this happened to me, she would take me back in a minute. >> larry: do you like the statement he made? does it fit the way you know him? >> i think it's obviously somebody that would love to get back with her. i can't imagine she could possibly say yes. >> larry: how do you imagine she kept an adopted child a secret? >> well, she had friends. she had some good friends that really kept it quiet.
>> larry: do you think being in the papers a lot has helped your business? >> probably, it has. but in my life, it's made my life more complicated. i'm a real estate guy. number one, hey, we do great with "the apprentice" and it's a successful show. but what i do best is real estate. i love walking new york and buying buildings. now, i can't do that. so it's made my life more complex but probably it's helped. >> larry: i was with my friend and your friend, freddy wilmot today. he spoke very favorable of you. he said people make fun of you, but you're a great real estate developer, first and foremost, you are? >> it's nice that freddy said that. he's a great real estate developer. what i did best is develop things. otherwise, i wouldn't be on "the
apprentice" because that's what it's about. >> larry: do you like that this name is in the paper all the time? >> well, it's part of the life. he's bigger than life in one way. >> larry: and you've cup to accept that? >> yes, yes. and what does he do? every sunday, he's in millions and millions of homes. so it's part of the business so i don't have a problem with it. >> larry: another "celebrity apprentice" contestant is in the hospital with a brain hemorrhage. we'll ask about bret michaels. stay with us. so many arthritis pain relievers -- i just want fewer pills and relief that lasts all day.
take 2 extra strength tylenol every 4 to 6 hours?!? taking 8 pills a day... and if i take it for 10 days -- that's 80 pills! just 2 aleve can last all day... perfect. choose aleve and you could be taking four times... fewer pills than extra strength tylenol. just 2 aleve have the strength to relieve arthritis pain all day. i'm going to own my own restaurant. i want to be a volunteer firefighter. when i grow up, i want to write a novel. i want to go on a road trip. when i grow up, i'm going to go there. i'm going to work with kids. i want to fix up old houses.

>> larry: it's a night you never forget. 1985. i had a feeling that night this show would be it. when it gets down to the who, what, when, why? here i am, here to ask questions. i'm the best. we've got the top 25 contest going to pick your favorites. we're going to have the trumps do their selections a little later on. arizona's new law. what do you make of it? >> well, it all starts with the federal government not coming out with a law, they've been talking about it for years and they still haven't done anything. arizona is getting crime-ridden. there's killings all over the place. shootings all over the place. >> larry: do you favor stopping people on the street? >> what are you going to do? are you going to stop people to see whether or not they're supposed to be there. i personally as a citizen wouldn't mind. >> larry: would you mind if
people from slovenia were stopped because they looked funny? >> well, i think everybody needs to have papers to be legally here. we need to have papers if we go anywhere else in the world. so people need to have papers here. >> larry: do you own property in arizona? >> no. >> larry: no. what do you make of a boycott plan? >> i think it's ridiculous. arizona is one of our state, they're a productive state. a wonderful state. i've been there many times. and people are just streaming into their state. and crime rate goes way up. and they say, along the border, it's just brutal what's happening. if you live along the border. i just heard this today. i was listening to somebody describing life. it's murder. it's really dangerous stuff. and a lot of the border states are having this problem. i think the federal government has to do something or the states are going to take it into their own hands. arizona in a very tough way has taken it into their own hands. >> larry: do you see where mexican-americans might be a little offended?
>> well, i can see that. but if you think about it, nobody wants to say it, you have a mexican-american and then you have a blond guy walking down the street. mexico doesn't have a lot of blonds. >> larry: so you're in favor of profiling? >> i'm in favor of -- if people are coming in illegally, i am favoring you have to have laws. nobody knows what the law is. people are streaming across the border. sometimes, it's drug dealers. what's. happening there, the drug dealers are coming in and that's a big deal. they're coming in and they're killing. >> larry: you also have american interests hiring them? >> you have american interests hiring them, absolutely. and many cases, they're great workers. the biggest problem is you have great people come in from mexico works crops and cutting lawns that i'm not sure a lot of americans are going to take those jobs. that's the dichotomy. that's the problem. you have a lot of great people coming in doing a lot of work.
and i'm not so sure that a lot of other people are doing that work so it's a very tough problem. but i do say this, you have a law or at least you have to establish a law. and i guess we're sort of a country, and other people aren't supposed to be coming into a country illegally. >> larry: so you would not favor a boycott of any kind? >> no, i would not favor a boycott. >> larry: we'll be right back with the trumps. we're going to look at melania's line of jewelry, if diamonds are a girl's best friend, wait till you see some of the stuff she's brought. don't go away. my doctor said most calcium supplements...
aren't absorbed properly unless taken with food. he recommended citracal. it's different -- it's calcium citrate, so it can be absorbed with or without food. also available in small, easy-to-swallow petites. citracal. my subaru saved my life. i won't ever forget that. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru.
>> larry: by the way, i mentioned the immigration law. we'll discuss it tomorrow night. major discussion on this program. we're back with the trumps and melania now has a new jewelry line for qvc. you designed all of that? >> i designed that. i sketch. i studied architecture and design in slovenia. >> larry: you were a model? >> when i finished my design, i
went to modeling. and i just love see the idea coming to life. >> larry: why qvc? >> it's the best retailer out there. and the best -- >> larry: so on friday night you'll debut this, right? you're going to sell this? >> this is on friday. >> larry: inexpensive? >> everything under $200. it's affordable luxury juewelry. and every piece has a story behind it. i design for women across the country who loves jewelry, and they don't need to break the bank to afford it. for example, this bracelet, it's only $35. >> larry: come on. >> yes. and this one, $240. it's $35. >> larry: how much is the wedding ring, donald? >> i'll never have to buy jewelry again. that's what i like about it. >> larry: but the wedding ring -- >> this is the engagement ring.
this is the ring i designed. $35. >> yeah, $35 and $35 million. you tell me the difference. >> larry: what do you make of this entrepreneurial line from your wife? >> well, these very entrepreneurial. but more than entrepreneurial, she's got a good sense. from clothing to jewelry. and i noticed from the beginning. >> larry: men's watch? >> no, woman's watch. it's for the office. this is for $65. >> not bad, right? >> larry: now, your stepdaughter, ivanka, has a very successful high-end jewelry line. you'll find nothing in there for $200. i've been in that store. her boutique starts at $700 up to $250,000. you're not competitors. what do you make of the line? >> i think she has very beautiful jewelry.
it's a very different design from what i have. and the price is different, too. but she's very successful and this is completely different. and they can afford it and have fun with the jewelry. there are pieces that you can wear it on the beach, playing with the son, just put it around your neck with sarong, you know, it's just for fun. and there are two collections. the paris collection is more glamorous. >> larry: but nothing over $200? >> nothing over 200. >> larry: what do you make of this, donald? >> i think it's going to be successful. i actually sold one of my books "think like a champion" on qvc. >> larry: what do you think of your wife? >> i think she'll do very well. i think she'll do very well on television. >> larry: did you come to donald and say, this is something i want to do? someone had to back you, invest in this? >> yes, but i don't like to
bring business home when he comes home from office. i don't like to discuss business because they're both -- >> i've been asking her for 50% of this company. i want 50%. >> so i just told him that i have a great idea. somebody approached me, and qvc saw the line, they loved it. and that went on. when he saw the line, had said it's beautiful. >> but, actually, right from the beginning. she'd design a jacket. and she'd wear the jacket and go out to a party. and really sophisticated people and models are coming up, where did you get that jacket? she designed it and made it. she's always have a great design sense. >> larry: you're very proud of her and your daughter? >> i'm proud of her and i'm proud of ivanka. >> larry: does everybody get along? >> yes, we do. >> larry: as we saw, donald and
