While Barbara Corcoran, founder of the Corcoran Group, found a welcome opportunity as the token female executive among male titans in last season’s reality show “Shark Tank,” the real estate maven said she had to fight her way into that spot. In fact, according to More magazine, she was initially turned down for the job, something that Corcoran said she wouldn’t take lying down. “What I learned in real estate sales helped me in the TV world,” Corcoran said, “perseverance, breaking through rejection and going back for another swing.” In a sharply worded letter to the show’s producers, Corcoran made her case for why she should be included on the show. “I do my best when my back’s against the wall,” the letter said, referencing one of Corcoran’s greatest battles: her legal kerfuffle with Trump. “There was The Donald himself who wrongly swore in court I’d never see a penny of the $4 million commission he owed me for saving his ass and making the largest land deal in the city’s history.” [More magazine]
