Calling any reality television casting agents and the rulers of all messy canned drama (Mona? Andy Cohen?)–I promise if I’m ever paid copious (or not so copious) amounts of money on a reality show, I won’t blow said fortune on tanning beds (I’m looking at you, Situation!) or Ed Hardy. I’ll pay down my student loans and maybe buy a car that isn’t over a decade old. Granted, I’d be boring as all get out to watch, but I do have some entertaining friends. I certainly wouldn’t run through whatever money the reality gods wanted to pay me only to continue digging a deeper financial hole for myself. Pinky swear!
I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’d strive to be the exact opposite of Jon Gosselin. After the success of Jon & Kate Plus 8 followed by a nasty divorce from Kate, the two competed for fame whoredom, and blew through their money in the meantime. While Kate seems back on track with Celebrity Apprentice and Kate Plus 8 Jon just can’t get his bank account on point.
Last night on the finale of Celebrity Apprentice, the blustering balloon of buffoonery that is Geraldo Rivera was deflated. And for that, we are eternally thankful. Meanwhile, a new winner was crowned – one deserving, classy, and hard-working – without shenanigans or drama. Sorry I-an ZierLING, it wasn’t you, it was Leeza Gibbons! Congrats lady.
I, personally, think Leeza should been awarded with a rhinestoned crown, bedecked with dollars, and coins, and a sash that read THE Celebrity Apprentice. It would perfectly tie-in with Donald Trump‘s Miss Universe Pageant – that opportunity for cross-marketing was woefully overlooked! If nothing else than for Kenya Moore‘s eyes to turn into lasers at someone else’s pageantry, and for her arguably, possibly, silicone butt to melt into a puddle of wasted dreams and toxic antics. I’m sure we’d also find the charred remains of Vivica A. Fox‘s cellphone in that mess!
It was a live season finale, which meant plenty of opportunity for Donald to slaughter the contestants names ( Ke$HIA Knight Pull-HIM – which sounds like a porn star alter-ego) and for Geraldo to refer to Leeza as “high functioning” – apparently likening her with one of the lovely developmentally disabled individuals his charity supports. He meant it to be complimentary.
If you didn’t watch last night’s season finale of Celebrity Apprentice, I won’t spoil it for you here, but be warned that the recap will be up next and that WILL talk about the winner. Also, don’t read the comment section if you don’t want to know!
Last night the celebrity contestants gathered for the season finale and to “crown” the winner and after the show’s airing was over, the contestants celebrated together.
Vivica A. Fox sat down with Meredith Vieira where she dished on Celebrity Apprentice (which she called a “beautiful business soap opera), what’s next in her expanding career, her love life, and, of course, her feud with Kenya Moore.
First of all, Vivica believes she would be the perfect replacement for departing Rosie O’Donnell on The View. “After surviving Apprentice yes, I deserve a job,” she joked. “I haven’t done a job in New York for a long time. New York’s grown and sexy, so I’d take a chance at The View. Why not?”
Vivica also chimed in on the media rewarding bad behavior by supporting women like Kenya, whom allegedly stole Vivica’s cell phone to make salacious tweets about menopause. Vivica wants Kenya to stop resorting to “desperate measures.”
Last night Donald Trump started off Celebrity Apprentice by demanding one of the remaining three celebrities plead their case to remain in the game. It was down to Vivica A. Fox, Geraldo Rivera and Leeza Gibbons. Naturally, human drama cannon Geraldo was not going anywhere.
Leeza attempts to blow sunshine up Geraldo’s patootie about what an amazing player he is. Smart move: she knows she can beat the pants off him and wants Vivica out of the game. I am sure Geraldo would gladly remove his pants, however, to pose for another naked selfie, just to reiterate how he started the selfie craze.
However, Vivica, after surviving “Toxic Trick”, decided the fight was not left in her. It must be the menopause making her act crazy, because she eliminates herself and promotes Leeza. So Vivica is fired and Geraldo espouses about how he is impossible to take down unless you are a KKK member on his 1987 talk show where he broke his nose.
Phonegate rages on! Last week Kenya Moore was fired from Celebrity Apprentice for stealing Vivica A. Fox‘s phone. Although Kenya denies it Vivica is having none of “toxic trick”‘s excuses and calls her out on negative behaviors and illogical behavior!
“It’s basically proven she [Kenya] stole my phone and hacked into my Twitter account and put out an awful message in a language I do not speak about myself in… period,” Vivica insists. “I mean, we’re not teenagers; we’re grown women. C’mon, you lost, grow up.”
“It’s her motto to divert from the truth, throw out insults and do the mean girls thing,” Vivica lamented. Vivica also points out the irony of Kenya making fun of menopause, given their closeness in age. “I don’t why she does that – I mean, she’s only 6 years younger than me! We’re in the same generation. But this is what she does: divert from the truth.”
