'Celebrity Apprentice' Recap: Patricia Velasquez Fired After Aubrey O'Day Cries

Aubrey O’Day’s crocodile tears saved her for another week! When is this girl’s luck going to run out?

Move over, party girls! The men’s team, Team Unanimous, won yet again on the March 25 episode of The Celebrity Apprentice. Despite the guys assuming they were at a disadvantage initially, they managed to pull the job off — and they had a good time doing it! The one person definitely not having a good time after this week, however, is Patricia Velasquez.

This week’s task: Throw a fun launch party for Crystal Light’s new line of mocktails.

The girls from Team Forte thought they had this one in the bag with project manager (and self-proclaimed party girl) Aubrey O’Day leading the pack.  Their Garden of Delight theme used to advertise Crystal Light’s Pomtini as a no-longer-forbidden fruit, thanks to its five calories impressed the execs — just not enough.

Clay Aiken led the men in throwing a beach bash called “Life’s A Beach” for their drink, the Peach Bellini. Though none of the men on the team are party animals, they threw a great bash. Their rendition of “Under the Boardwalk” that got every party guest singing and limbo-ing was exactly the kind of fun atmosphere Crystal Light was looking for!

The board room turned soggy very fast with both Aubrey and Lisa Lampenelli shedding tears. Aubrey’s waterworks definitely worked on Donald Trump though, considering he handed over $10,000 to her charity — despite her team losing!

Aubrey was quick to point out how invaluable she is as a member of Forte. Both she and Teresa Guidice put Dayana Mendoza on the chopping block, even though it was Patricia Velasquez‘s poor branding that lost the task for them. Lisa didn’t let The Donald forget that, though! When Dayana, Patricia and Aubrey returned for the final outcome, a cat-fight ensued. The three women never forgot to remind each other how amazing they thought they were after each insult, however.

The men gawked in the back room at the women’s inability to cite Aubrey as the problem — considering they have lost the majority of tasks under her creative leadership. Thank goodness for her fiery spirit, admired by all three Trumps, or she could have been cut. Ultimately, it was Patricia’s mistake in not plastering Crystal Light’s logo all over everything that made Team Forte lose, so she was fired.

It’s unfortunate that the women finally felt united on this task only to still lose — but hey, at least Aubrey knows her crocodile tears will work!
