Donald Trump

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?

After famously quitting Celebrity Apprentice on Sunday night following weeks of yelling, Nene Leakes made the press rounds yesterday! The above photo was taken Monday as she walked the streets of New York City.

Nene’s actions came as a surprise to most fans of the show considering she had vowed to take down her rival Star Jones just a week earlier. And it seemed she had the perfect opportunity to do just that after Donald Trump moved her to the other team as Star stated she no longer wanted to work with her. There are also reports that came out months ago stating that behind the scenes, Star had to hire a bodyguard to protect her from Nene, who made physical threats against her. Whatever the case, Nene decided to quit the show without informing her teammates or saying a proper goodbye.

“I call my own shots in life, I do whatever I feel, and when my gut tells me to do something, I follow my gut feeling,” Nene told Access Hollywood Live on Monday. “I felt like it was a toxic situation for me and for my own sanity and health reasons and everything else, I decided to leave the show,” she continued. “Star was absolutely being manipulative and backstabbing and all those things, but the final straw for me was when Mr. Trump decided to switch me, take me out of my comfort zone to accommodate Star.”

Oh but it gets better as the Nene feels the Donald disrespected her by moving her to a new team. “I felt he was disrespecting me,” said Nene. “I’d rather be around people who love and care for me. I don’t want to be in toxic situations, So, I decided to say, ‘Bye,’ because I don’t think you have to be backstabbing and lying and manipulative to raise money for a charity… we’re not on ‘Survivor!’” Funny to hear Nene say she doesn’t like being in “toxic situations” when she’s usually the one creating the said toxic situations, you know, by getting into people’s faces and continuously yelling at them.

Oh well, Nene also added that she will be in attendance for the show finale. “Absolutely I will be back on the finale,” she revealed.

As for the Real Housewives of Atlanta season 4, Nene confirmed it has indeed began filming. “We’re shooting our fourth season,” she said. “We’ve been shooting for about three weeks.”

Meanwhile, John Rich gave an interview days ago during which he called Nene out on doing the show for personal gain and not for her charity.

“You’re standing there with somebody who’s not on the show for their charity,” he explained. “It’s all about [NeNe's] attitude and wanting to have all that drama. And that’s been the separating factor. Why are you here? If you’re not raising money, you must be here for yourself. Last night, I was able to visit a 5-year-old St. Jude patient and present a check for $649,000. If Trump fired me next week, I’ve still done what I set out to do.”

John makes a valid point as Nene failed to raise any money for her charity, going 0 for 2 when she was the project manager before ultimately quitting.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON NENE’S COMMENTS? DID THE DONALD DISRESPECT HER? DO YOU AGREE WITH JOHN RICH’S COMMENTS?

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.

You either love her or you hate her as no one I know has ever had a neutral opinion about NeNe Leakes.

In a recent radio interview with the Russ Parr Morning Show, NeNe, who stars on the Celebrity Apprentice, is not happy about the insinuations in the line of questioning inferring she bullies fellow cast mates. Of course, the always diplomatic and never defensive NeNe attempted to set the record straight.

She tells the radio show, “I don’t know what you been watching because nobody has said that I seem like I’m the bully on ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’ I know I’m not a bully and everybody has their opinions and that’s fine with me. You’re not on the show, I am. So you don’t know what goes on.” Well, I guess that’s it then, NeNe is not a bully. Not one to end it there, NeNe goes on to share what it is about her sparkling personality that could potentially lead to that false public opinion. She adds, “I’m not bullying anybody. I stand up for what I believe in, and I’m very honest, and I always tell the truth. I’m not a liar, I’m not manipulative, and I don’t stab you in your back, because I will stab you in your chest.” I’m just concerned that regardless, stabbing is involved.

NeNe insists that it is her star quality and not her penchant for drama that landed her on Celebrity Apprentice. “I’m on the show because I am very popular and Mr. Donald Trump handpicked me himself,” she insisted. NeNe did admit to the radio hosts that Apprentice wasn’t her cup of tea and revealed that she was soon hoping to get her own show. If that happens, I know I’ll be watching. Seriously.

When asked if her slightly (?) negative portrayal was the fault of editing (isn’t that what all reality stars say is to blame for less than stellar reputations?), NeNe is not happy. She retorts, “You need to say that to your listeners and also you haven’t seen Star be manipulative, evil and conniving? She was calling me uneducated. She likes to pull the ‘I’m more educated than anyone’ card all of the time. Just because you went to school for ten years doesn’t mean you are smarter than me because we are on the same show getting the same check. I don’t like people who like to put out bad information. That’s not cool to the listeners. I have a very big heart. I’m a very good person and there’s nobody you can talk to that has ever been around me that would tell you anything other than that. That is who I am and what you see on TV is TV.” It’s very commendable to own her behavior, I have to say, but I am guessing that Gregg or Kim Zolciak may think otherwise as to how fabulous she says she is.

Recently fired “celebrity” castmate Hope Dworaczyk also dished about NeNe’s behavior, as well as that of NeNe’s Apprentice nemesis Star Jones. In the past, Hope has called NeNe “unstable” but opened up to E! Online about both co-stars. “Star was bossy and you couldn’t tell her any different, but NeNe was a bitch, too…I love them both and I hate them both, because they were so hard to work with, yet, when we were in our down time, they were fun and enlightening and dancing on the floor.” Too bad that Hope won’t be dancing on the floor of Trump Towers with NeNe any longer.

What drama can NeNe stir up innocently come across on tonight’s episode? Watch the following preview of the special three-hour episode below!

TELL US – DO YOU THINK NENE IS A BULLY?

Maybe future presidential candidate Donald Trump has spent the past few weeks sharing his opinions on both his politics as well as President Obama, but the question today is has the Donald gone too far?

Gone too far as in is he now hurting NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice? Oddly enough, many critics feel Donald’s recent publicity tour is actually a stunt to increase ratings for his show. But that now seems to be backfiring as not only are some viewers threatening to boycott the show due to Trump’s political statements, but Groupon announced Thursday that it had decided to pull all future ads from the Celebrity Apprentice website at the urging of its customers.

After an online petition was launched last week urging a boycott of companies that advertised with the show, Groupon, which doesn’t advertise on the TV show but rather on the NBC.com website, stated that they would not place ads on the show’s website in the future so as to “[avoid] intentionally upsetting a segment of our customers.”

“Enough consumers have contacted us to warrant ensuring that we don’t place ads on the Apprentice homepage in the future. It’s the same reason we don’t run deals on guns or abortion… this isn’t a political statement, it’s avoiding intentionally upsetting a segment of our customers,” said Groupon via a statement on their website.

And according to NewsOne, a news service for the African American community, other advertisers are starting to pressure NBC to either control Trump or risk losing their sponsorship on the Celebrity Apprentice.

Meanwhile, the big question still remains – Is Trump actually going to run for president? “I am thinking of saying on live finale of The Apprentice finale on May 22 that in a few days I will be making an announcement about my decision,” Trump told the New York Times last month, claiming that the decision is a “tough” one because Celebrity Apprentice has been performing well in ratings. The decision is apparently tough because if Trump decides to run for president, he will no longer do the Apprentice.

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of Celebrity Apprentice as we finally get to see the widely promoted smackdown showdown between Nene Leakes and Star Jones. A preview clip is below -

TELL US – SHOULD TRUMP KEEP HIS POLITICAL OPINIONS TO HIMSELF? IS HE HURTING THE SHOW? PLUS THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?

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.

This season of Celebrity Apprentice continued to be one for the books as the latest episode brought us an epic meltdown and a record breaking fund raising.

Before the teams could get started on their latest fund raising tasks, the men’s team had to deal with the loss of Jose Canseco, who decided to bow out after learning the health of his father, who is battling cancer, had taken a turn for the worse. Jose met up with Donald Trump to break the news, and the Donald ended up donating $25,000 to his charity. Richard Hatch however pondered if Jose’s early exit might have also been because he knew he wouldn’t be able to raise any money.

Either way, the show went on. The task was for both teams to raise funds via an art auction. Country singer John Rich was the manager for the men’s Team Backbone and all was going well, that is until Gary Busey took some of the painting tools purchased by Meat Loaf, allegedly. And holy meltdown as Meat Loaf absolutely lost it.

“Motherf–k! I bought those motherf–king sponges!” screamed Meat Loaf at Gary. “You look in my eyes. I am the last person in the f–king world you ever want to f–k with! You pushed me to the f–king limit!” In fact Meat Loaf had to be retrained from getting physical with Gary. Meat Loaf, who stated he had been to anger management in the past, would end up apologizing to Gary as it turned out his missing art supplies were sitting in a corner the entire time.

Things went more smoothly for the women’s Team ASAP as team manager Marlee Matlin managed to raise an astonishing $986,000 – an apprentice record. This gave the women a win over the men, who also raised an amazing $606,000.

A stunned Donald then gave Marlee the option of letting the men’s team stay intact or choosing to have someone fired. Marlee huddled up with her team before ultimately choosing to have someone fired from the men’s team. While the men felt Gary should be fired for his lack of focus, Donald ultimately decided to keep Gary for the ratings to fire Richard for raising the least amount of money.

Meanwhile, we began to see the brewing drama between Nene Leakes and Star Jones this week as the two ladies got into a quick tiff during which Star accused Nene of patronizing her. “Nobody is patronizing your a**,” responded Nene. And judging from the previews for next week, it seems the Nene will be rearing its ugly head on national television once again, as she is shown verbally attacking La Toya Jackson for reasons unknown.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON MEAT LOAF’S MELTDOWN & MARLEE’S DECISION TO HAVE SOMEONE FIRED? SHOULD GARY HAVE WENT HOME INSTEAD?

According to numerous reports, Jersey Shore star The Situation experienced a bit of an ego bruise last night during the taping of “Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump.

See, for some very odd reason, The Situation was made a part of the roast and he ultimately took to the stage at some point to tell his jokes… which bombed badly, to the point that he was booed off the stage. Below is an excerpt of what happened from the LA Times -

“”The Sitch,” as he’s called, deadpanned to [Whitney] Cummings, “I actually wouldn’t call you a grenade because you won’t be blowing up anytime soon.” (Buh-dum-bum!) He told Snoop Dogg that he and Trump had a lot in common because Trump owned a lot of property and Snoop’s ancestors were property. (Snoop did not appear amused.) Before long, the audience began to boo so loudly that comedian Jeffrey Ross, who’s been at this so long he’s known as the Roastmaster General, had to interject into the act to try to save the Situation, who’d already claimed he shared one quality with Ross: “This is my first night doing comedy.” “It’s also your last,” Ross responded, to overwhelming applause.”

In fact, one Comedy Central exec stated The Sitch’s jokes were so bad, that most of his act might be cut from the final broadcast. The roast will air on Comedy Central on March 15. Here’s to hoping the “jokes” will be left in so that we can all laugh at with the Sitch.

In other Shore news, there seems to be a small feud brewing between R & B singer Ne-Yo and Snooki, all stemming from Snooki’s recent Rolling Stone magazine cover.

It all started on Monday when Ne-Yo tweeted, “Wow. Snooki is on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Really? I quit. (Just kidding, but almost serious….).” He later added that he wasn’t trying to diss the Snooks. “I gotta reiterate, no disrespect to Snooki,” he told E! News. “I don’t know her so I can’t disrespect her but I feel like Rolling Stone is a music magazine and for them to put her on the cover, it’s like, ‘Really?!’ “

Snooki however took the diss personally as she tweeted, “Neyo’s mad that I got the cover of rolling stone?…you lost a loyal fan. What a buzz kill.#sorry.” Ne-Yo however seems to be taking the loss of a fan in stride. “I think I’ll be all right,” he smiled upon being told of Snooki’s tweet. “I think I’ll sleep tonight.”

Finally, on tonight’s all new episode titled, “GTF—Gym, Tan, Find Out Who Sammi Is Texting,” things heat up between J-Woww and Roger; Pauly and Vinny take a road trip to Staten Island; and Mike clues Ronnie in on some of Sammi’s suspicious behavior. The episode airs at 10/9c on MTV.
