Lisa Lampanelli Will Win 'Celebrity Apprentice' This Season

Mon, April 9, 2012 5:51pm EST by 110 Comments

Love her or hate her, Lisa has demonstrated she has exactly what it takes to avoid the Donald’s wrath.

I’m not a gambling man, but if I was, I’d put all my money on Lisa Lampanelli. I’ve had my doubts about her this season on Celebrity Apprentice — I certainly won’t defend her calling Dayana Mendoza a s**c during a recent radio interview — but after watching her square off against Lou Ferrigno on the April 8 episode, I’m fully convinced she won’t be hearing “You’re fired.”

Much like Donald Trump himself, Lisa doesn’t take anyone’s crap, and that’s largely what has kept her in the game this long. She’s the polar opposite of Cheryl Tiegs, who basically chose to leave the show after the first week because of her opposition to confrontation. But more importantly, Lisa plays fair. As much as she criticized Dayana on the April 1 episode, she recognized Dayana’s hard work as project manager this week. In fact, she even defended Dayana to the Donald in the boardroom!

Besides, look at her competition: Clay Aiken? Arsenio Hall? Paul Teutul? Those guys are good for a laugh, but they haven’t been carrying their weight in recent weeks, and as more celebrities are sent home, their weaknesses are becoming clear. And while Penn Jillette is obviously very smart, I feel like he’s gone half the time doing shows and should probably be dismissed by default.

For one reason or another, Lisa’s real threats are the remaining ladies of the competition: Teresa Giudice, Aubrey O’Day and Dayana. Some are smart, others merely manipulative, but all are worthy adversaries.

Again, I won’t defend the personal remarks Lisa has made against her fellow apprentices, but as far the game is concerned, I think she’s got it in the bag.

and lastly….

people getting upset at Lisa for what she said on the radio show…
they liked her humor when she trash talks other races…
which she often does… yet she says one thing about Latinos and suddenly she has crossed the line and you will now not support her racist ways….

what does that says about YOU people????
it is OK when she is mean to blacks… just live us Latinos/ Latinas alone….

Racism is ONLY funny when somebody is talking about another persons race… not yours….

another thing….

all of these mean and hateful comments about Lisa’s looks are
just stupid…
Just because a woman may not like another womans work ethic or ideas
does not make her jealous…
Lisa has more than enough money to fix anything on her body if she wanted to…
I think she looks just fine….
yes.. Dyanna is very pretty… BUT, I would rather be ugly and smart and creative….
than pretty and dumb as a box of rocks… which Dyanna clearly is….

What gets me is all these people calling Lisa ugly and fat… while coo’ing over Dyanna who has clearly been manipulative…
Just look at her smirk when she asked Lisa what she could do before the show…
and also… she totally got miffed over not being a host or one of the puppets…
Dyanna was acting childish during the whole puppet episode…
Of course Lisa finally blew up…. Dyanna was pouting and manipulating…
she always gets mad when people don’t like her ideas…
Like the Mop episode when she suggested they use a pregnant woman who’s water was breaking…. YUCK!!! it was a bad idea…. yet she got all pouty cuz the others would not use her ideas….
I totally see where Lisa is coming from….
and anyone saying that Lisa is jealous of Dyanna is just not being real…
Dyanna is pretty…. she is just not creative….
tho, she is very good at manipulating…. that I have NO RESPECT for..

as for Lisa’s comment on the radio about Dyanna…
yes.. it was crossing the line…. Guess what???
That crossing of the line has made her famous…
it was a joke… and anyone who heard it and knows Lisa’s comedy act would have known it was just the kind of thing Lisa would say… that is her brand….

In this day in age with bullying being such an issue it is characters like the one Lisa demonstrated in the show that drive people to madness. She was a bully. The minute someone said anything to her she would either lose her mind or verbally abuse them. Her time and delivery were violent. I know she is successful but I would never support her. There is having an opinion and then there is being a bully. For someone so tough she sure cried a lot and searched for validation every two seconds. If you are truly that talented you don’t have to remind people every two seconds. She demands respect but is hard to give it. What a pathetic mess. The amount of money you make doesn’t make you any less pathetic or any less of a bully. She is also racist hands down. Stop using your profession to validate unprofessional behavior. It is truly unfortunate that someone with that much power and platform would use it to hurt others. No amount of crying or charity can change that.

I’m sick of everyone whining about Lisa being mean, so Im just going to go ahead and make all you whiners happy. The final two are Arsenio and Clay, spoilers have already been leaked. So everyone whining about Lisa can stop already, she clearly gets fired…

Greg you are exactly right! People are being so cruel towards Lisa, and the reason theyre doing it is because they think she’s cruel? Makes no sense if you ask me, very hypocritical. Maybe a bit of jealousy.

Excuse me! Anyone who uses a racial slur spic to called out another person who she is jealous of…Is unacceptable. I don’t expect you to understand this because you are probably not Latin/Hispanic. Has a latin woman I will never support Lisa Lampanelli, I actually used to like her. But that liked is over! Anyone but her or Audrey should win!

So… she says everything you do, except that she’s infinitely more popular, famous, and richer than you. In the end, you’re just a cunt who doesn’t like her brand of comedy. ANd judging by your grasp on spelling, I’m sure your career matches your looks as well.

I was really disappointed by Lisa’s performance in the puppet show. She talks herself up so much…but Clay was so much more glib and funny. She shows what happens when you let your ego and fears dominate your persona-you behave like a nutcase! All her tension twists her face into an ugly angry mask, which obviously bothers her or she wouldn’t hate Dayana for being beautiful. I wish she’d get a clue-‘gee, I’m creating all these problems and drama all by myself!’ it’s sad. If she wins, it would show how crass our tv culture has become.

I disagree I think Clay by being more “tactful” when disagreeing or putting someone in their place, will beat her ass all over the place.
As well as being more like-able his former team mates will give him much better support.

I’m not sure which of these celebutants I’d vote for to win this season. None of them truly have what it takes to work in the prestigious halls of the Trump Towers – even in the mail room. Being a successful leader requires skills that this group clearly lack including diplomacy, professionalism and something we see so rarely on this show – fairness. If you disagree, ask yourself which one you could see yourself working for? Who would inspire you most to work to your potential? Which one own their mistakes before throwing you under the bus to save their hides?

I’m surprised to see viewers come to Lisa’s rescue when she has been so clearly abusive to others – particularly Dayana. Being unable to have meaningful and productive business relationships with others will ultimately be Lisa’s downfall. She certainly has a strong personality and is very bright, but she is wrecklessly vicious and unable to professionally articulate in the boardroom.

This show should be renamed “What not to do in business”. Truly the only good thing to come out of this season is a regular donation to a public charity.

“What not to do in business” you say for Lisa? Like, say, be one of the most revered “hate comics” since Don Rickles? She has an amazing career FYI, and if you’re really all mad over some shitty reality show, then guess what. YOU’RE FUCKING FIRED.

Lisa Lampanelli is a true bitch. I can’t believe she is still on the show. She should have been fired a long time ago. Anyone who is that hatefull and spitefull… she needs to go back home and stay there until she rots into a steaming pile of sh#t that gets eating by sasquatch, then sh#t out by sasquatch only to be blended into the ground to where then Lisa-Shitplants grow, which will then take over the planet, thus killing us all…. sorry…i got carried away.

Lisa Lampanelli is ugly and hateful. Her behavior on the show has been ridiculous. I am hoping it was just editing that showed her as such a hateful person. What a bully she is. I imagine she was so hateful because she is fat and ugly and all the other women were younger, slimmer and prettier. Can’t stand the Beeatch.

Annonomous “Steve” Lisa is a very good person, she just does not take crap from anyone. Her manner is the difference between intelligence versus ingnorance. She has been Grammy nominated and is one of the top 5 female comics working today. I maybe bias since I have met her in NYC and SFO and trust me she is not a wimp, she is in fact a very giving and nice woman, she just cannot stand slackers or weak people who think they are entitled in life. You have to work for what you want out of life and people like Victoria, Cheryl, Lou and the others who have skated by are weak and deserved to be canned.

I hate a person who say they were ‘just joking’ after they cross ‘the line’ with their ill mannered insults! Lisa does this. It’s amazing how fake & mean she is and no other person on the show stands up to her. I would scream all over her fat ass. Lisa thinks she is sooo smart b/c she went to safety schools & went to Harvard for Grad(which is waaaay easier than undergrad). Lisa! Your ideas are not winning & you are not that smart cause you can type or copy and paste in computer programs. She went off on poor old Lou after she lied and said she didn’t call him a effin loser, SHE DID! Lou’s wife should slap lisa! I thought lisa & aubrey had a thing for eachother they way they kissed eachothers ass’. Teresa was so weak for not bringing Aubrey into the boardroom so aubrey could get fired. Even D.Trump pointed out that Aubrey should have been brought back into the room. That made teresa look scared.

Obviously u havnt see the promo of Dayana Mendoza vs lisa lampanelli, where lisa starts making fun of latinos languages with the puppet in fron of dayana, trying to piss dayana! but she couldnt do it!..Lisa is a bitch and she needs to get fired!.. WHite trash!..she is worst that that! =S

Fact :

1. Lisa is a hard worker, & is “creative”, but the record speaks for itself – in the end its about winning, & she’s won no money, & her team has consistently lost, fact.

2. The Donald does realize that if the “ideas” people, or more correctly, the loudest voices come up with losing ideas, they should go – Aubrey’s on her way out & Lisa, when it matters, when she has to defend the losses of her “creative” inputs, won’t be able to simply say “someone has to” – you’re fired not for great effort, but for mistakes – & clearly for all her alleged smarts her ideas are losers, fact.

I’d bet on Clay – you need synergy, clearly, more than anything – the men that & they won, & they contained Aubrey, & they have continued their winning spree. No I in Team …

Lisa plays fair?! You’ve got to be kidding me!

1. For a professional comedian, Lisa seems to have zero sense of humor. Either she’s yelling at other people and cutting them down, or seems close to TEARS half the time! Lighten up Lisa and stop being so vile.

2. Just like her protege Aubrey, Lisa dishes out so much crap but is always on the verge of an emotional breakdown. As a woman, and recognizing that there is a great deal of sexism out there, I am really annoyed that Lisa bullies others and then tries to play the gender card. Own up to your crap!

3. Donald Trump you are full of s***, and this is why your businesses are going bankrupt. If you ask people which team did better, how are you going to blast someone for giving an honest answer? If as the Trumps believe, “loyalty” is more important than the truth, then I guess the Trumps don’t acknowledge when they make bad business decisions or when there is room for improvement…!

Plays fair? Are you kiddin me? The only reason Lisa backed Dayana and changed her tune was because she didn’t want Dayana bringing her back to the boardroom for elimination. According to Lisa and Aubrie they are the ony players who contribute anything to the tasks. Might that be because no one else can get a word in? I loved when Aubrie had her melt down and left because she could no longer tolerate all the negativity. She didn’t have a probem with negativity when she was doling it out. Unfortunately CA has us right where thay want us…glued to the screen cause we are so angry with these women. But there is no place, not even reality TV, where this behavior should be tolerated.
Hopefully Trump will send these two women (I certainly can’t refer to them as ladies) and their classless behavior packin’.
