Breaking Code to Win

Recently on an episode of Celebrity Apprentice there was an incident which really piqued me.

The two teams were in the board room with Donald Trump and others and the following went down:

The Donald asked Vivica A. Fox if there was any member of her team she would like to send home and she said yes, Shawn Johnson. When Mr. Trump asked her why she said: 

"She had a monthly problem that was bothering her and I just felt like she was not herself."

She went on further to say "She got her damn period!"

By the look on Olympic medalist Shawn's face, you could tell she couldn't believe that Vivica had called her out for having her period. 

I understand that this "game" is about winning and all but shouldn't one's allegiance to the sisterhood still be strong? 

I personally don't think I would mind if anybody called me out for not feeling my best due to Aunt Flo's visit but we're all different and if a woman isn't comfortable having millions of people know about the arrival of her period, I think that should be respected. Do you think Vivica broke girl code? 

Later in the episode after they left the board room Shawn called Vivica out on just this and said she would have preferred if she had said she wasn't feeling well. Shawn believed that what Vivica did was "trashy."

So, I'm wondering how you all feel about this. Would you be pissed if somebody did this sort of thing to you or would you just shrug and blow it off?
