Celebrity Apprentice Recap


This week’s episode of the longest show on television, Celebrity Apprentice was not only the most anyone has ever mentioned restaurant chain, Medieval Times on television, since their ubiquitous ads in the 90s, but was also an ad for the Real Housewives franchise.

This is unsurprising considering Real Housewives of New Jersey cast-member, Teresa Giudice‘s presence on the cast and NBC’s ownership of the Bravo network. While, it made sense for the women’s team, Forte, to pick the ‘Un-Real Housewives of Camelot’ as their theme for their 15 minute Medieval Times show (this week’s assignment), it all felt a little dirty, especially when Aubrey O’Day excitedly announced the Real Housewives had “like, 5 million viewers.”

On last night’s season premiere of Celebrity Apprentice, we met our new gang of folks of questionable notoriety on a quest to make money for charity…and advance their dead (in the case of Arsenio Hall and Dee Snider) or just getting started (Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Giudice) careers.

The first challenge was for each team to take over a sandwich shop, and sell sandwiches to raise money for their respective charities. The ladies decided to go with the name Forte, suggested by pop queen Debbie Gibson, which seems like a grammatically incorrect choice, but that’s probably not a strong point for this bunch. The men choose Unanimous, since they’re all friends. Aww. I would have expected something manlier given their choice of Paul Teutul of American Chopper as their project manager. Something like “Brakes and Babes” or “Muscle Confidential.”

Celebrity Apprentice winner John Rich

Heading into the Celebrity Apprentice finale last night, it was a tight race between country singer John Rich, 37, and deaf actress Marlee Matlin, 45 (she looks great for 45 no?).

In fact Donald Trump revealed that this was his toughest ruling yet in the history of the show. “I’ve never had to go through something like this… You’ve both been amazing,” said Trump to both finalists before announcing a winner.

Ultimately, John, one-half of the country-music duo Big & Rich, came out on top, beating Marlee to earn a $250,000 check for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Marlee had been competing for the Starkey Hearing Foundation charity.

“Today has been an unbelievable day!” said John after his win. “I got Trump to put on a Stetson hat on national television and now I get to drive down to Memphis with a $250,000 check for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.”

With the exception of Richard Hatch, who is back in prison for tax evasion (much to the delight of David Cassidy), most of the “fired” contestants returned for the live finale. Though noticeably missing was music legend Dionne Warwick.

Of course the Donald had to revisit the whole Nene Leakes vs everyone Star Jones drama. Nene claimed she had moved on and didn’t hold a grudge, only to yell over Star seconds later while Star attempted to answer a question from Trump.

And right before he made the winner announcement, Trump promised to do something he had never done before. What was that you ask? Well while he hired John, he did not fire Marlee. Rightfully so as there were no losers this season with over $3 million raised for charity– a record for the show.

It was also announced last week that Trump will return for another season of the Celebrity Apprentice.

TELL US – HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS? DID THE RIGHT CONTESTANT WIN?

Last night on Celebrity Apprentice, the Donald narrowed down the final four contestants to the final two! And if there’s one thing to be learned from this episode, it is that without Nene Leakes and Star Jones on the show, it was more of a boring mellow 2 hours.

The episode began with the three previous winners of the show, Joan Rivers, Bret Michaels and Piers Morgan, interviewing the final four contestants to determine which two should leave the competition.

Lil Jon had a major slip up when he told the panel John Rich and Marlee Matlin deserved to be in the finals over him. Though he tried to back track, the damage was already done. “My three winners hated your answer when they asked you who should be in the finals and you didn’t say yourself,” said Donald Trump to Lil Jon before firing him.

The next in line was Meat Loaf who was also fired by Trump for crying every second being too emotional. “Piers and Joan and Bret didn’t like your emotions,” said Trump. “But, I think your emotions are beautiful. Even though I think the emotion is a positive, from a business standpoint too much emotion can be not so good. Therefore, Meat Loaf you’re fired.”

With those two firings, the not so shocking final two included John and Marlee. It was then time for the final challenge and Trump brought out some of the previously fired contestants to help out. John chose Lil Jon, Mark McGrath and Star for his team, while Marlee chose Richard Hatch and Meat Loaf, also ending up with La Toya Jackson who wasn’t chosen by anyone.

The final challenge? To launch the 7UP Retro brand. On Marlee’s team, she had to deal with a cra cra Meat Loaf who was all over the place, while Big Daddy Rich had to ward off some flirtatious advances from Star. Ultimately, John’s team came up with a zebra-striped 1980’s 7UP can design while he enlisted the help of Dee Snider of Twisted Sister. While Marlee’s team decided to call on 1970s 7UP icon Geoffrey Holder to help with her ad. And do not feel bad if you don’t know who any of these icons are, thank goodness for wikipedia, it just means you were likely born after 1980.

And next week, we will discover who won this season of the Celebrity Apprentice plus a live reunion show. Nene also stated last week that she will be in attendance so buckle up folks! It should be a good show.

TELL US – DID DONALD TRUMP GET IT RIGHT WITH THE TWO FIRINGS? WHO SHOULD BE CROWNED THE NEXT WINNER? JOHN OR MARLEE?

The super-duper sized 3-hour episode of Celebrity Apprentice aired last night and it did not disappoint! The episode brought us a not so surprising whiner and quitter, a sequel of a previous firing, and ended with arguably the most shocking “you’re fired” of the season!

Let’s begin with Donald Trump meeting up with the remaining 7 contestants to give them instructions for their new task. Nene Leakes, who verbally attacked Star Jones last week for reasons still unclear, is feeling much better this day and ready to make up with Star. When asked by Trump if she was ready to work with the Nene, Star made it clear that answer was a NO. And can you blame her? Trump ended up moving Nene to the other team, and the overly sensitive bully’s feelings were apparently hurt. Victim Nene stated she needed some time to herself, and selfishly disappeared on her team, who were forced to work without her. “Nene is so disappointing to me. You can’t abandon us. She didn’t even say goodbye,” stated John Rich.

On last night’s episode of the Celebrity Apprentice, it was Nene vs Star take, oh who’s keeping count! The two ladies butted heads once again, well actually it was more of the Nene verbally attacking yet another person on national television, while Star just attempted to keep her distance cool.

The episode begins with Nene Leakes still reeling over the elimination of her new BFF La Toya Jackson. You know, the same person she verbally attacked a few weeks ago and the same person she helped send packing. Nene is upset at Star Jones as she feels Star is manipulative aka playing the game, something the Nene clearly doesn’t know how to do.

The task is to produce a live hair show using Biosilk and Chi products, with the winning project manager getting $40,000 for their charity of choice. Donald Trump wants to know who will be PM for the women’s team and Nene immediately volunteers. Okay, all is well. Not! Almost immediately, the Nene loses her cool as she reveals the only reason she’s PM is because Star told her to be. Evidently, she has to do whatever Star says, and even more interesting, asking someone to be a PM in the game of the Apprentice equals fighting words!

Last night on Celebrity Apprentice, we discovered Nene Leakes continues to remain the most unaware person on earth, Hope Dworaczyk continues to slide under the radar, Gary Busey returned to the show through a reincarnation via the Meat Loaf, and oh yeah, Star Jones is definitely playing the game! So let the games begin.

The task was to have each group create 4 pages of ads for the Trump Hotels. Star stepped up to manage the women’s team since she’s been living the life of lux all her life, while John Rich volunteered to be the men’s PM since nobody else would.

Nene suffered another mild emotional breakdown and played victim yet again when she simply couldn’t understand why La Toya Jackson would tell Donald Trump she wanted to keep in touch with everyone on their team except her.

“I cannot understand what I”ve done to her personally for her to say that,” said the Nene. Seriously, she did… days after verbally attacking La Toya by calling her Casper and stating she was only famous because of her last name. Surreal. The Nene is starting to give me Kelly Kirazy Bensimon. La Toya stands her ground stating she simply told Trump how she felt. Star gets involved and has the ladies talk things out, which might have been a bad strategy on her part. Nene, probably realizing just how important La Toya’s last name is, says she wants to be friends and La Toya extends an olive branch.

On last nights’s episode of Celebrity Apprentice, upon finding out that Gary Busey would be managing the men’s team, Donald Trump stated we would either find out Gary is a genius or a complete moron. And by the end of the episode, uh well, let’s just say genius he is not!

The challenge was to market the meat by mail company Omaha Steaks. The teams had to create three occasion themed meals from the extensive catalogue of “gourmet” frozen (seriously um… some of that stuff looked a lot like Lean Cuisine, but whatever) and then do a live cooking demo for the executives and a studio audience. They also had to create some sort of signature theme package to feature in an upcoming Omaha Steaks catalog.

The only thing unifying the men’s team was the desire to get Gary fired so they somehow persuaded Gary to become Project Manager so they could make an undeniable example of what a disaster he is, even though John Rich is convinced he is calculating saboteur (yeah – I’m really not buying that logic). On the women’s team Hope Dworaczyk stepped up to prove that babies can lead a team of grown women to victory.

As a project manager, Gary pretty much delegated his own smoking breaks and nothing else. His only act of leadership was to walk in, stare at Meat Loaf ominously and pronounce him chef, as if he was bestowing upon Meatloaf a great honor. He did not assign Lil Jon or John “Ka-boy” Rich anything. So they sat around and talked some trash and didn’t even try to help Meatloaf, even though he was visibly stressed out. There was some drama about a menu Gary signed off on that was printed differently from the menu Meatloaf was given and Little John had to cut up pieces of paper as his only task. And everything went wrong and was Gary’s fault. Because he really did a ridiculous job of planning or as John described it a “catastrophic collapse of time management”. And yeah, what was Gary doing – he is just too nuts. That entire team was a train wreck.

For their meals, the men did some kind of anniversary dinner with a bizarre story about the romance filling your stomach so you can look into the eyes of your loved one, a father’s day meal that involved flying a kite with the Omaha Steak logo on it (?!?), and I don’t even remember what the last thing was I was so distracted by Gary’s crazy. Then they made some sort of package that had about 500 different seasonings, because Gary wanted to convince Omaha Steaks to sell flavored steaks. Meatloaf did look like he did a great job, though.

This is off topic, but I wonder – do you think Gary and Kelly Killoren Bensimon have met? I think they might make a great couple! They are eerily similar. They both ramble nonsensically and leave you wondering what end is up and they seem ok with being on a totally different planet than the rest of us.

On the women’s team La Toya Jackson, our poor spoiled Jackson princess, has never cooked because all her many servants have always lovingly prepared her every meal, so she just pretty much set off fire alarms trying to make a hamburger on the stove. “Whoops” she mused in her twee little voice, blinking her giant crazy cartoon eyes slowly like a Lisa Frank trapper keeper unicorn. Nene Leakes made a snide comment about La Toya trying to turn her into Michael Jackson by… I guess setting her hair on fire– which was actually kinda funny. Star bossed everyone around and then sexually harassed (totally obliviously!) the very sweet chef helping the women. Which ew – nothing makes me feel less like eating an Omaha Steak than the thought of Star Jones touching some poor man’s area – and he was cute too! I am sure he is still crying in the corner at the Culinary Institute while holding his head in his hands.

Then there was a lot of bickering and back stabbing and complaining about each other behind each other’s backs and La Toya and Nene whining, and it looked like nothing was getting done, but then voila! or should I say Omaha! A presentation appeared. The women did hamburgers, a petite sirloin heart-healthy dinner, and a lobster tail. Then they made a “Poker Night” package filled with hamburgers and some other stuff perfect for the rich and spoiled who cannot go to the grocery store and buy a pound of hamburger and make their own patties. I do think their presentation seemed very professional and well put together.

Anyways, they won! I think it was because Nene cooked a lobster – what do you think? In the boardroom, Mr. Trump made a big to-do about Hope’s age and how young she was to lead a troop of tough old broads out for blood. Nene sweated – oh excuse me, glistened in a lady-like manner – through lying about what she thought about Hope’s PM skills, she was apparently just “good” not great. By the way, does anyone else love Hope’s wardrobe?

The men did everything short of begging Mr. Trump to fire Gary by having Meatloaf stutter with anger, and Lil Jon complain about how he had no tasks except advising a grown man about putting tissue paper in a box, and John complaining about being addressed as boy. So some dispute ensued about Gary calling him boy or “Ka-boy” which is a term used for cowboys? Ummmmmmmmmmmm… So Mr. Trump finally accepted that relying on Gary to carry the ratings for this show was wearing thin and fired him, then he let Nene and Star know that they better do something crazy to make up for Gary leaving or else one of them goes home next. And that was that – next week we FINALLY get to see some serious Nene vs. Star dramz! Yay!
