The Apprentice’s Brittany Carter and Stephanie Affleck open up about moving in together and becoming inseparable after the show.

Chatting to hosts Bobby Norris and Stephen Leng on the showbiz gossip programme Access All Areas, the businesswomen spoke candidly about their friendship: “She [Brittany] has moved into my house. We shared a room together in the Apprentice, they put us together and literally ever since then she’s just never moved out of my room. She just went from there to my house and has never left! She went on the family Christmas holiday with my family, that’s how much we’ve become intertwined.” 

Brittany continued: “I didn’t even ask, I just decided not to go home one time and that was that! Her dad calls me the third daughter.” 

Stephanie also spoke about the unlikeliness of making friends through the show: “We should hate each other! It doesn’t really happen on reality TV but even more so on The Apprentice because you’re in competition with each other. Everyone always says they can’t believe what good friends we are.”

Later in the interview, Carter responded to questions of whether they’d like to go into business together: “We’re both not officially in business together but all the business meetings that I have or any business decisions I need to make I go to Steph and vice versa. She came to my first business meeting with me with my investors and ever since then she comes to every single meeting.”

Stephanie agreed: “I would trust her [Brittany] with my life. I know that if she had to make a business decision on my behalf, I know she would make the right decision for both of us.”
