Celebrity Apprentice? - Page 2

post #21 of 66
I thought it was really unfair to have so many women-friendly tasks. what happened to the remodel-the-apartment and see how much you can rent it for? If I were a man and learned the next task was selling wedding dresses I would have been mad.

I bet they rearrange the teams for next week.

I'm starting to think that Dennis Rodman might end up winning it all. Everyone kind of ignores him because "He's Dennis" and I could almost see all the others getting fired for one reason or another and Dennis being the only one left.

I agree that drinking with Dennis was a very bad idea.

Interesting task last night...although Dennis is a HOTT MESS; I'm glad the boys rocked it

I think Trump made the right choice with who he fired, but we'll see how strong the ladies are if they lose again

i really like that Jesse James guy! He has all the best ideas and is a really good team player and everything.

On the girls team I also like the playboy bunny girl...what the heck is he name? lol I just remember her by that! I'll have to pay attention next time.

I really thought the project manager for the girls was no good this week and the person who went home deserved it.

Yeah...Jesse is kinda the highlight of the boys team!

The Playboy bunny is Brande Roderick, she is a very strong player given her profession; I'm sure no one was expecting that from her.

Well, according to the previews, they're doing an intervention this week because of Dennis' drinking. I wonder if they'll kick him off for that?

Hey what did you all think of the double firing!

FIrst of all, clint totally should have been fired. He sucked as project manager, hasn't been doing all that great this whole season and really his viral video was stupid, too risque, and didn't help the advertisers in any way.

Also, I thought it was weird that he fired khloe due to her dui. I mean a dui is serious and not cool, etc. but she is attending her classes and what not, and this happened BEFORE the show...he said he supposedly had JUST found out...but okay.... the firing thing was weird.

I thought jesse james video was hilarious and if they left out the midgets swearing at the end, maybe they would have won? instead of having two losing teams...

what a weird episode! lol

oh yeah and firing the tlc girl just because she "volunteered" to stand by melissa....shouldn't he have just tried to figure out the weakest person? Or blamed the project manager because they lost? I almost think he fired her because she is kind of boring. Hasn't added any drama to the show, etc. Also, she has zero facial expressions...doesn't even smile!

The double firing was really weird. He's such a hardass tho. When he fired Tionne my husband and I were both in shock.

I can understand why he fired Khloe, on principle. She's paying for her DUI conviction via taking classes, yes, but clearly Trump feels really strongly about people who drive while impaired and I definitely approve of him sticking by his guns.

The Athena video was hilarious. I loved every second of it, even the midgets swearing at the end. That's internet humour -- it's crude and self-mocking.

I thought that Athena's video was a great example of a viral video. I thought it was interesting that the ALL people wanted something that was "cutting edge" as a viral video but at the same time wanted it to be conservative and appeal to women with children. I thought the Athena video was very appealing to their demographic but they are picturing housewives in their aprons being offended. Does that make sense???

I think Donald Trump is a d**che.

He thinks he's so much better than everyone else. Labeling and punishing Khloe over something in the past that she's rectifying is just really strange.

His "ethics" about DUI's? Hmm he better poll all his contestants because I'm almost fairly positive Khloe isn't the only DUI. Rodman got "wow buddy you really need to take care of this problem." and Khloe got condemnation. Total double standard.

Donald isn't a righteous person, he has many faults. He sucks as a husband for one, and he's a creepy pervert. How many times did he need to say how hot the actress was in Clint's "video"? He even said "Wow Clint your wife isn't going to like this." Maybe Melania isn't going to like Donald's gross old man drool fest over the actress either?

I just think he was tripping when he fired Khloe. She's trying to make something terrible into something positive (her charity was drug and alcohol related) and he just craps on her face like that. Rude. And you notice we didn't see her chugging drinks back. I think he just needs serious psychological help. He's so narcissistic.

He seems to like labeling human beings by terms like loser. It makes me sick. He makes a bad name for rich people.

I'm not watching the show anymore. Donald is a turnoff. Ditto on Clint Black. Laundry will never be the same.

Ummm, I'm not the most PC person in the room at pretty much any gathering, but "MIDGETS"?????? Are you serious? On what planet do people, especially those who appear in the public eye NOT know that that's an inappropriate slur?

Terminology aside, if they substituted ANY other minority and/or disabled group - people would be outraged. "Hey, people in wheelchairs are funny! NO, wait, Asians or Native Americans are even more hysterical!!" Gah, seriously...making any group the punch-line for their physical differences is disgusting. And I was so dismayed that this was the initial "go-to" for BOTH sides.

Gross.

Thank you!!! Really, MIDGETS??? I was stunned that out of all those people they couldn't come up with something better than midgets. WTF? They did ask the little people what they felt comfortable being called and the one guy did say midgets is fine, it didn't matter to him. NOT that I'm defending the whole thing.

Trump going off one Khloe was just crappy. She made a mistake, she paid for it. I'm sure if you looked closer at all of them you could find things that they could be ridiculed for. Didn't Rodman beat up a woman at one point? That's ok? Trump acted like a jerk.

I know you're not defending. That dude, though, was an actor in NYC deperate for work, as most are (IMHO.) Haven't you seen "A Chorus Line"???

Many, I think, especially when work is scant for "type-cast" parts, will sacrifice a lot of the principles they probably would have stood up for in their pre-acting career. It makes me think of that little person on "I Want to Be an Actor" on MTV Real Life and she ended up on the Ozzfest Tour - dressed up as an evil "dwarf" and getting harassed by the audience there. She really wanted to be a serious actress, but found that parts for little people were scarce unless they appeared in some sort of "punch-line" role.

I think it's up to the majority ("normal" sized people) to not buy into the "Hey, aren't midgets FUNNY!!!" line to help little people gain some more respect in society. Your disability (or, I think I'd rather say, the way you're differently abled) shouldn't be a throw away joke for the mainstream media. There's a better way to do comedy.

Ooops, I thought about it last night and the "True Life" epi was called, "I Am A Little Person."

Who's surprised that Joan walked out too?

I can't help but at Melissa's exit. It's a game. You lost. Get over it.
post #36 of 66
I like Melissa. If she wanted to stay, she should have tried to put more blame on Annie... as Annie basically said she did everything. She still might have been fired anyways... but she would have had a chance. However, if the whole purpose of the game is about raising money, then Melissa never had a chance. She's not a "real" celebrity... so she doesn't have the connections or the name-power.

I liked the Clint/Jesse/Joan's team ad 100x better. I was really surprised. The powerstripe along the edge was a great move. I also thought their play on Right Guard in the tagline was great.
post #37 of 66
I thought that Melissa's outburst was ridiculous and overblown. Basically all she did was whine during the entire show. Yes, she is good at what she does, but she was mad from the beginning when they didn't like her ideas. And, honestly, I liked what they came up with better than her idea.

She acted like they threw her under the bus, but really, Brande had to defend herself.

The only thing I didn't like about clint's ad was the orange fire background on the shot with just the basketball player. I thought it looked SO much better with a black background. I wonder if it will be edited at all before it appears in the magazine.

I agree. In fact I was thinking gee, I hope her kid doesn't see that performance! Melissa strikes me as someone who is not used to getting her way. Still I did think Brande should have been fired. I think Trump probably fired Melissa because of the dramatic tension he knew it was going to cause.
post #39 of 66
I still don't understand the need for all the cussing @ firing. no one else does that. sure can tell she's a pampered child *and* adult.

I'm a huge country music fan but Clint is bothering me a lot. I want to see Jesse and Annie in the finals!! I have a relationship with Annie and who can not not love Jesse? the coolest.
post #40 of 66
I thought Melissa blew her top, and it was a bit much, but on the other hand I can understand holding it in (because she did for a long time) and then just being absolutely livid when you finally realize that you were right all along and the schemer Annie got her way.

We could all see it happening and Donald with his "Huh I think Annie is a nice person, you think different?" Like it's some surprise that she's a snake.

Greedy, selfish, power hungry people always win this show. They get kicked off one by one from weakest/nicest to greediest/meanest every single year.

Annie is a snake imo. I don't necessarily think character assassination is in order, but you can see her crazy making BS. She is so arrogant I would choke her if I was on the show, and I'm not a violent person.
