'Celebrity Apprentice' Recap: Two More Celebs Were Fired

Sun, April 1, 2012 11:54pm EST by 12 Comments

On this week’s special three-hour episode, the tasks and firings doubled! Who was still left after Trump’s bloodbath?

The moment we’ve all been waiting for finally arrived on the April 1 episode of The Celebrity Apprentice when Teresa Guidice‘s Jersey-girl spirit finally made an appearance! And while the boardroom table remained in its proper upright position, everything else on this week’s episode was totally flipped around.

Donald Trump‘s first task: The celebs had to create and sell a New York City guidebook; Regis Philbin even showed up to judge!

Once again, the ladies on Team Forte came in last place, despite Regis liking their book best and giving them a $35,000 head start. Team Unanimous (the guys) and project manager Dee Snider earned $14 more than they did selling their book, winning the task. $14! The slight difference was a first for the show.

Aubrey O’Day managed to slip past elimination, yet again, even though she raised the least amount of money, essentially losing the task for the girls. The Donald basically said that if project manager Teresa had been smart and called Aubrey back, he would have fired her. (We were this close!) Instead, Debbie Gibson got cut, but not before an all-out cat fight with Teresa who called her “maybe” talented at singing. Needless to say, Teresa did not get a hug goodbye from Ms. Gibson.

Before the night was over, the men all commented how happy they were not to be on a team with Aubrey. Dee said, “I see her tail and horns. Bring it, kid.” Little did the boys know, the Donald had a trick up his sleeve.

The teams were assembled by Mr. Trump for the second task, and in a shocking twist, he switched them up! Since the ladies lost five out of seven tasks, he played Aubrey and Teresa with Clay Aiken, Arsenio Hall, and Paul Teutul Sr. — much to the men’s intense disappointment. Meanwhile, Lisa Lampanelli was stuck with Dayana Mendoza, along with Penn Gillette, Lou Ferrigno and Dee.

Now for the task: Design new branding for Walgreen’s Walk With Walgreens membership kit and produce a health segment for the program.

Lou stepped up as project manager for his team, while Arsenio volunteered for his new team. Aubrey went on creative overdrive, and Penn really stepped up for his team, while Lou and Arsenio tried desperately to hold onto their power. Arsenio’s new team decided to do a game show for the health segment, and Lou’s team focused on all the great things you can get done while walking. Dee handled the branding for his team, placing the Walgreens logo all over it, while Aubrey wanted to put the faces of everyone on their team onto the membership kit.

The two unofficial project managers, Aubrey and Penn, caused a few bumps in the road. Aubrey and Arsenio butted heads, especially when she referenced Arsenio “walking away” from his career. Ouch! “I’m sick of her,” Arsenio blurted out.

Penn, meanwhile, had to abandon his team temporarily for a show, which made Lisa nervous since she seemed to think he was the only other competent person on her team.

At their event, even Lisa gave Lou props on how well he pulled everything off. Penn, however, misnamed the event! It was not good, and the execs definitely noticed that. The other team presented their game show with Arsenio as the host and the other teammates as contestants. Despite his frustrations with Aubrey, Arsenio was proud of what his team brought to the table. Now off to another table — the one in the boardroom.

Even before the winning team was announced, Arsenio made it pretty clear how he felt about Aubrey. And then came the tears… again! (Surprise, surprise.) But surprisingly, their team won! Curiously, Aubrey left without going into the boardroom.

Back in the boardroom, Lou, Dee, and Dayana were all up for elimination. Donald proclaimed how much he hates firing people, and this group seemed to be a particularly tough one for him. But Dee was in charge of the branding, and the box’s design just wasn’t good enough. Dee Snider, you’re fired!

The only question left is: Where, oh where, was Aubrey O’Day?

Debbie Gibson has a horrible voice, so nasal, lacks technique.
She is ugly too. How is she a celebrity? There must be a mistake.

Aubrey is a manager/team player not a follower/team player and she can BRING IT. The cube design, colors, faces, all of the quotes but Arsenio’s – – EVERYTHING came from HER concept and HER ideas. Arsenio, on the other hand, built off of what Aubrey came up with and the most he could find to gripe about was that he found a nude photo of Aubrey on the net (pointing out her tummy was sticking out) and that Aubrey took credit with Lisa….. What do you expect? It’s the boardroom. She has a right to defend herself and her work. Arsenio and Dee (HYPOCRITES because they’ve said the same things about Lou that Aubrey has said about Dayana, Patricia, Tia…) started personally attacking her even before the merge in spite of the fact that she never personally attacks anyone (except for the jibe to Arsenio about him walking away from his career – – which, like I said a minute ago, HE STARTED IT so 100% deserved that). From what I saw, Arsenio did little but whine (and distract from the task) about how he didn’t like his face pic for the cube. Aubrey could use some tact. She’ll figure that out as she matures. Arsenio is old and still hasn’t learned to be creative because you either have it or you don’t. Shame on Clay for participating in the gang up on Aubrey just because he bonded with Arsenio. Why should Aubrey put up with all the abuse when she is never given credit for anything (she saved Dayana’s task)?….and yahoos like Dayana and Arsenio are so obliviously stupid they actually think their ideas won the task. I wonder what the executives would have said had they known Aubrey came up with EVERYTHING but Arsenio’s quote…. I doubt they would have been as impressed with Arsenio. Haters are weak/bitter/pitiful people.

She’s a lo pro ho that got the BOOT from Diddy! Arsenio gave her that awesome SMACKDOWN, and Ms. Big and Bad RAN from the room with her tail between her legs! Hahahahaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!! Aubrey aka Ronald McDonald, we KNOW this is you posting! You rolled up on the RIGHT person and got your face BROKE!!! Hahaaaaaa!!! YOUR so called ideas gave your team FIVE or SIX losses, and you have the nerve to BRAG? Okay, so you just confirmed you ARE a psycho! Hahaaaaaaaa!!!!!! Yeah, she’ll learn alright, learn that she cannot run with the BIG BOYS!! (Arsenio, Clay) Ol girl has talked about EVERYBODY behind their backs! Tia’s age, Debbie’s singing, Dayana’s and Teresa’s lack of skills, I could go on and on. YOU are the LOSER for worshiping such a weird, distasteful, nasty, obnoxious CLOWN like O’Day! Hahaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!

So answer the hard questions, Marty, if you can. What ideas (that don’t stem from what Aubrey or Lisa suggested) did Arsenio or Dayana bring to the task when they were team leaders? What original ideas did Diddy ever have? All he has ever done is “collaborate”, i.e. pay or use others to come up with “his” ideas and sell clothes. He can’t sing, dance, publicly speak…. How is it that the men (Dee, Clay, Arsenio, Paul) can call out Lou and George about all their personal faults losing the task but somehow Aubrey doing the same thing by calling out the women for issues she believes lost (or distracted from) the task is somehow different?

Aubrey is such a bratt! Her way or the sky way! What’s up with Lisa? No wonder she looks ugly….she is ugly from the inside!!! Her fun and lively pictures don’t resemble her at all!! I see that she can’t just play “mean” in her comic acts…she is actually a really mean and vicous person inside! She needs to learn spiritual peace and actually can learn from Dayana!!! No wonder Lisa picks on Dyana: Lisa is jealous and knows Dyana is smarter and prettier and can’t stand the threat!!!

Debbie Gibson seems like a lady. So nice. How is Teresa still there? She is like a wild boar. She sets a bad example for her children. Teresa and Debbie are the same age also so Debbie is not older than Teresa.

Wow your really one sided. Aren’t writers supposed to be a little more unbiased in it’s reporting. This is exactly why blogging will never be journalism.

Glad Aubrey is gone and hopefully for good. She is such a baby. As soon as she hears something she doesn’t like, she is crying. Not fair Trump felt sorry for her last week and gave her money. She is a bad example of women
