If there’s one thing to be learned from last night’s Celebrity Apprentice, it is that ratings trumps all. Meaning how else can you explain Donald Trump choosing to keep Gary Busey over the other
sane more deserving contestants?
The challenge yesterday was to create a marketing campaign for the Australian Gold sunscreen products. The men’s Team Backbone came out on the losing end after the Australian Gold execs decided they did not like the pirates theme nor the fact that the men failed to integrate their key brand messaging aka their Koala Bear mascot.
The team managers were Mark McGrath and La Toya Jackson. In the board room, the men’s team banded together, making it crystal clear Gary was their weakest link and deserved to go home. Unfortunately for Mark, he was sent packing after the Donald realized the entertaining Gary was better for the ratings.
Now onto the good stuff as Nene Leakes displayed her lack of class on national television yet again, but this time around in front of a few million more viewers than that show on Bravo.
While in the board room, Nene called out La Toya for not being a good team manager. Okay, fair enough. La Toya defended herself and all seemed to be okay as the women’s team did win after all.
Donald asked Nene to apologize to La Toya and she refused. Still fair enough. However, upon exiting the board room, the Nene decided to completely lose her sh*t, going off on La Toya and repeatedly insulting her.
“Don’t ever try me like that! I worked my a– off while you sat there and looked like Casper the Ghost. Listen here, Casper,” said Nene. “The only reason you’ve gotten this far is because of your last name. You faked it for 50 years. You are very old. You need to play your age and not 12. You are an old lady.” And why exactly is Nene famous herself?
La Toya managed to keep her cool and simply walked away. “She feels she can run over me. I will not stoop to her level. We’re torn from two different cloths. I’m sorry,” stated La Toya aka she is trash and I am not.
La Toya also summed up the Nene perfectly when she stated, “Nene is nothing but a big bully. She’s got a big mouth. That’s all she’s is – mouth and height. She uses that to her advantage.” And where was Nene’s mouth when Dionne Warwick was calling her a coward? Seems like she definitely enjoys picking on those she deems as being weak aka La Toya and Kim Zolciak.
And once again, Nene received a lot of backlash from fans causing her to make the following tweets last night -
“Ok Ok Ok yall r blowing my timeline up! Latoya & I hav made peace & moved on!”
“I luv my tweetie pies but Some of yall do flip flop from week 2 week but it’s all good! I’m n a really good place rite now so it’s ok.”
Guess that makes it all okay. And judging from next week’s previews, it seems the Nene will continue to rear its ugly attitude.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON LAST NIGHT’S CELEBRITY APPRENTICE? SHOULD GARY HAVE BEEN FIRED? THOUGHTS ON NENE VS LA TOYA?
