It's getting to the point where things are being thrown at my television watching NBC's study of boorish boardroom antics in "Celebrity Apprentice."
For the women, if you have bit of class, and are especially pretty and trim, you will be fired by the witches' brew, aka Dionne Warwick, Nene Leakes and Star Jones. This week Meatloaf and Gary go head to head, as NeNe and Star get into their alpha female brouhaha.
This week the task is selling RV's, as the teams are to be judged for brand messaging and overall presentation. The winner gets $20,000 for the project manager's charity.
Gary Busey is elected project manager for the men. Niki Taylor is the project manager for the women.
The ensuing action sees Lil' Jon and Gary butt heads, as Jose Canseco insults country music fans and jailbird Richard Hatch, who can't pay his taxes on time or ever apparently, makes a crack about country music fans and their sub-intelligence, which enrages John Rich. Not smart. You almost wonder if Rich has Mags Bennett (Margo Martindale) from "Justified" on speed-dial, plotting their punk-a** demises.
Ivanka tours their RV and she gives them a thumbs up and calls him a "complete original."
Back at Team ASAP, Niki is set on a 21st century camping experience. Dionne is a waste of space and just complains she doesn't understand what she is supposed to do.
You know why? She doesn't listen ever, and she could care less about any of the younger, beautiful classy women of her team who she wants out.
So she, Star, Nene and LaToya are bestest buddies now. Just watch, Star and Dionne, if they last, will plot just like this against Hope and Marlee.
Star is playing this thing like Machiavelli's The Prince. She acts lawyerly in her carefully selected asides and remarks. She praises LaToya and then throws Niki under the bus big time.
Don Jr. says people talked about how Dionne is not very motivated to work.
Gary says his team is fantastic. Trump lays into him and you can see there has been a sea change in Busey's stage persona, he is sick of being made the fool, played the fool, and expected to act the crazy loon Trump wants him to be every second of camera time.
Gary shares that Marlee Matlin took him to her doctor so he could get hearing aids to rectify decades of being legally deaf for 22 years after his accident.
Ivanka calls out Jose of being lazy-ish and why he was zoned out when she visited.
Trump then says the men won this task. Gary's head injury charity is getting $20,000 from Trump and and additional $20,000 from Camping World.
Niki takes the high road and refuses to get into a "gotcha" blame game that Trump orchestrates with goading remarks. Niki - a proper adult lady - takes responsibility.
She is too passive for a crass game show like this, and is fired.
What do you all think of these people?
