Four "Celebrity Apprentice" alums told Chelsea Handler's Netflix talk show on Wednesday that they aren't voting for Donald Trump and bashed the former star of the NBC series. 

Singer Clay Aiken, comedian Lisa Lampanelli, and reality show stars Khloe Kardashian and NeNe Leakes took turns on "Chelsea" sharing their feelings about the former host of "The Apprentice" and "Celebrity Apprentice," according to Entertainment Weekly.

Kardashian was one of the harshest critics, noting that she only agreed to appear on "Celebrity Apprentice" at the behest of her mother Kris Jenner.

"My mom wanted me to do it and I hated every minute of it," she said. "Stressing myself out and then dealing with him and about to be fired, I was like, 'F*** you, I don't need this.'"

Vulture added that Lampanelli called Trump "effin' crazy" and suggested that the presidential candidate acted inappropriately toward women in the "Celebrity Apprentice" boardroom.

Leakes, star of "Real Housewives of Atlanta," claimed that Trump wanted to use her as his campaign's "ambassador to black people," noted Entertainment Weekly.

"They sent me an email and asked me to speak at one of his rallies," Leakes joked. "I didn't."

In what appeared to be a backhanded compliment, Lampanelli gave high marks to Trump's children who appeared on "Celebrity Apprentice," Ivanka, Eric, and Donald Jr.

"They all went to Ivy League schools," Lampanelli said about Trump's children, noted Entertainment Weekly. "Someone raised those kids right, and whoever the mother is did a great job."

Aiken, the former "American Idol" star, said that even though he plans to vote for Hillary Clinton, he believes Trump has a good shot at winning the presidency.

"He realized he can tap into that anti-establishment fervor that's in the country and can get people to love him," Aiken said. "Those folks who don't like politicians are more motivated to vote. As much as it pains me to say it, I think that Hillary Clinton doesn't inspire people enough to get folks off their a**** to get out there and vote."

Other "Celebrity Apprentice" stars have come out and said they will support Trump, said ET.

"I know him personally," actor Gary Busey said. "I know him professionally. He's a great guy. He's sharp. He's fast. He can change the country after the last eight years."

Jesse James, former host of "Monster Garage" said on Facebook that Trump was "a man that is perfect [sic] suited to run this country," noted ET

"He is respectful to the little guy (which shows he worked hard to get where he is) and he is also tough as nails when he needs to be," James said. "The people he will appoint to key top positions will be top shelf, and you can bank if they don't perform? They will get the boot. Good or bad I will always tell it like it is. This guy is the Real Deal, and will Make America Great Again."

Former Miss USA and "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Kenya Moore added, "Donald Trump is very outspoken. He's very honest. He's very forthright. He doesn't bite his tongue and his opinions are his opinions, but clearly they're shared by so many. So, he can be polarizing at times, but he sticks to his guns, and that’s something that I respect in him...I have some kind of synergy with him, cause those are the qualities that I see in myself."
