Gotti was the second celebrity to be fired by Donald Trump on Sunday's Celebrity Apprentice after sparring with Team Forte project manager Lisa Lampanelli in the boardroom.
When asked by Acces Hollywood to predict who Trump will hire in the season finale, Gotti singled out Aiken rather than anyone on her former team Forte.
"Clay is smart. Clay is good," she insisted. "He's strategic."
Gotti added of her support for Aiken: "He can be ballsy if he needs to be, but thankfully he doesn't have to be.
"He focuses on the game, but he holds his stuff for the end… He's gonna take this."
Trump also recently praised Aiken's business acumen by claiming that the American Idol star was a "great singer, a tough guy and nasty" during the competition.
The Celebrity Apprentice airs Sundays at 9/8c on NBC.
