Things we learned last night on "The Celebrity Apprentice."
Eric and Donald Trump love Dep; The Donald must have been a Persian Prince in another life, Curtis Stone is the quintessential diplomat, Cyndi Lauper comes from the Pee Wee Herman's school of interior design, Sharon O is a blast to shop with and Maria K's true colors are showing full force.
And Bret Michaels will win this thing.
NBC's reality two-hour long advert for companies sponsoring that week's task has captured ratings, mostly because of Michaels' medical drama, but also because of the two older women, Osbourne and Lauper, who together bring a unique fun to the show.
Now it's just Sharon, as Lauper was lopped off last night, her "biayatch" fest with "Holly Peete Whatevah" is over, and now the real players remain.
A note to Trump Sr. who corrects Donald Jr's reeling off of the sponsor names. "You blew it. The kid will never be his father." Jeez Donald, even in jest words hurt more than anything. Can you imagine the feeling these grown children have as The Donald trots out newest son little Baron and his latest wife on the show too?
BridgeStreet Worldwide executive apartments was the assigned task. Each team is appointed to decorate the corporate short-term apartments for the Fortune 500 types who live for a few weeks to ninety days while they're doing business in New York City.
The catch this week was that Maria and Sharon got Curtis, as Trump sends our man Bret to balance Holly and Cyndi.
The reluctant project manager is Holly, who has become a Jedi master at reining in Cyndi who goes off like a pinball machine inside a prop house. Cyndi bursts out, "nobody sticks up for the gays!' out of the blue, and Holly and Bret are like, "what?"
Cyndi gets to tart up a whore-ish red room (ceiling too) with eclectic pieces for a unique "Celebrity Room" and she does a good job, though that room would work most people's nerves after a month of looking at it.
The downfall of Cyndi happened when she melted down over the alleged nicked ottoman and was rude to the handymen hired to help them finish their task in 24 hours. Her honesty was the final nail in her coffin at the boardroom sit down, as the only positive note, the red room credited to Lauper was revealed to be Holly's idea, not hers.
Bret took panoramic photos of New York and had a classic "Spinal Tap" Stonehenge moment. His photos were meant to be blown up to mural size, and came the size of a place mat.
Sugar Mama Sharon The fabulous Sharon Osbourne and the charming Curtis Stone get amazing furniture... for free.
Can we just give massive props to la donna Sharon? The woman can cut you like an East London hoodlum armed with a blade and turn around in a sweet little girl voice and start with her "bless you" bit and work that sugar for a treat. She has stores give her tens of thousands of dollars worth of amazing furniture. Maria proved herself to be a tit on a bull for this week's assignment and crafty Curtis worked his way into Sharon's Byzantine heart. They are now fast friends.
Curtis is a hot piece and he knows it. He's got the hair; he knows how to cook and he is well-mannered and an astute observer. He reads people as well if not more so than Bret. For straight men, that is saying something.
In the end, BridgeStreet pulls a thumbs down for Tenacity's apartment because of the seafoam green in the bedroom. Yet another cloying color that would turn you after a week of having to look at it.
Now, as Rock Solid wins, Sharon practically devours Curtis's mouth in kiss and embrace, and we can see her wheels turning as she says she wants to fix him up with one of her daughters. Hmmm.
The long road to the end was more of the cobra and the mongoose between Holly and Cyndi while Bret interjected here and there, and shot a nice side eye shank to the Bridgestone executive sitting next to Donald who said he would fire Bret.
Cyndi was fired and refused to make Bret feel good about their words inside the boardroom and give him his needed feel-good closure. She left in a right huff in classic old Hollywood style, glasses, scarf and black trench coat a la Dietrich.
Only two episodes left. Joan Rivers cometh. Two shall be weeded out and then the showdown begins.
I am betting Holly and Bret make the final two. How about you?
You're Fired! Cyndi Lauper gets fired in week 9.
Cyndi's Exit Interview Cyndi talks about her charity, her experience on the show, and how she feels about being fired.
Week 10: "Celebri-Tea" In the first part of the finale, the celebrities must create a new Snapple tea.
