'Celebrity Apprentice': A Shocking Double Firing Reveals Final Three

Sun, May 6, 2012 11:07pm EDT by 66 Comments

With the season finale just two weeks away, Donald Trump fired two more celebrities! Did the right contestants survive?

Arsenio Hall found himself in yet another boardroom battle on the May 6 episode of The Celebrity Apprentice, only this time it wasn’t Aubrey O’Day on the receiving end of his fit — it was Project Manager Teresa Giudice! He called her out for her poor leadership skills, while Teresa accused him of not bringing anything to the table. Ultimately, the celeb who ended up hearing Donald Trump‘s two favorite words was…

Teresa!

“It was a good experience,” Teresa said. “I wanted to prove to people that there’s more to me than just a housewife.”

Arsenio and Aubrey tried to play a little trick on Lisa Lampanelli, telling her Aubrey was the one who got canned, but the Queen of Mean — and the one I had put my money on in this competition — wasn’t buying it for a second.

That’s when things got real: The Donald called all four remaining contestants back to the boardroom for surprise interviews with last year’s Celebrity Apprentice winner John Rich and runner-up Marlee Matlin. When the one-on-ones were over, two more celebrities would be fired!

After an intense round of interviews, Lisa was let go, thus killing my dream of her winning the whole competition.

“My experience here was really cool … but hey, I was fired by Mr. Trump in the most pleasant way possible,” Lisa said on her way out. “It’s almost like I went out on this really high note.”

But just when the Donald was ready to fire another celeb, we were given a big fat “To be continued…”

Do you think Teresa and Lisa were the right celebrities to be fired this week? And which remaining celebrity should be fired next week — Aubrey, Arsenio or Clay? Cast your vote, then leave all your thoughts and theories in the comments section.

DEBRA JAMES – PLEASE QUICKLY make an appointment with your psychiatrist! If you LIKE Aubrey (AKA “ABOUTME”) then you need professional help or aren’t paying attention to the show. “ABOUTME” AKA Aubrey, is selfish, self-centered, couldn’t care less about her charity, it is all about HER HER HER. And she is a liar on top of all of that. If the Donald wants her as next celebrity apprentice then he needs to re- evaluate his own professional morals!

Maybe Teresa wasn’t a strong leader but Aubrey got away with murder last night—she came up with the whole idea of the presentation (and bragged about it!) You didn’t see her crowing about her wonderful (but losing again)
ideas. She was cowering quietly, hoping no one would bring the subject up! And she did get one of the persons she wanted, the redhead! She was not honest about saying they didn’t get the people they wanted (“people” is more than one!)
As for Lisa L.– getting bleeped every episode when everyone in the Universe knows what Donald thinks of swearing (helloo! did Lisa ever watch old shows, duh), and then being brainless and saying she knew when to USE crying? Double duh! And she thought Dayana had nothing above the neck. Please!

The Donald fired the right people last night. Teresa is definitely a dim bulb. She is not stupid but her elevator just doesn’t go too far up. Lisa is definitely a disgusting bully and on top of that, dishonest. Aren’t winnings supposed to go their respective charities? What is this nonsense about getting her cut? Did anybody else pick up on that? I have neer heard a celebrity talk about taking a cut of winnings designated for charity. Queen of Mean sounds like a greedy bully. Aubrey should be the next one out the door. What a self-involved, deceitful twit. Pretty scary behavior for someone so young. Short of being fired by Diddy on some stupid reality show band what has this sociopath accomplished in her life? The final two should be Arsenio and Clay but will probably be Arsenio and Aubrey because it makes for more drama and probably better TV. Sheeesh, enough already!

If it was a joke, she didn’t smile, wink, laugh, or say, “I’m kidding” after the statement. And since she doesn’t have the talent to tell a joke, it probably was said seriously. She’s a bully and Aubrey is a narcissist, and I’d heard of neither before this season. Trump should’ve called Trampanelli out a month ago based on her excessive profanity and inability to express herself in an intelligent, respectful manner. Good riddance to her.

I have come to the conclusion after watching tonights Celeb Apprentice episode and also episodes of the Real Housewives, that there is something wrong with Teresa’s thought process. I’m not sure what it is, but she seems to not be able to comprehend what others are saying. It’s very frustrating to watch. Especially when she is trying to defend herself. She’s all over the place. She definitely has something going on up there. She’s not stupid at all, but maybe a personality disorder?

So glad to see the Witch Lisa go, it was about time. The Queen of Mean!! I would never pay to see here now, she was awful.
Hopefully, next to go is Aubrey, never seen someone as conceited as she is. She appears dilusional as she talks about how great she is as the “creative” and she loses time after time. The irony that she is playing for a charity that wants to eliminate bulllying if incredulous. She is constantly dogging the other contestants and talking about how great she thinks she is. And she supported Lisa in being a bully as well. The two bullies need to go home!

Give me a break, nobody wants Lisa to win ever. I did the happy dance when she was fired. Aubrey is next to go. it was too obvious that they never brought her nasty behaviour to the forefront in the interview. She is too young and stupid to be an apprentice

I guess it’s not possible to have no winner. Clay has been pretty much the only one aside from way-out- of-her-league Teresa who hasn’t shown his ass this season. Love Arsenio, but he’s a little out of control sometimes and Aubrey is the only one who can do EVERYTHING right. Just ask her and she’ll tell you. She could really however, open a clothing store called Hookers R Us. Might have toned down the wardrobe just a bit. And I probably wouldn’t have proudly said that I did charity work for Fidel Castro.

If you go by who keeps their cool and does not call anyone names or has temper fits then Clay and Aubrey should be the last two standing. I love Aresenio, but he did call Aubrey some bad names and I can see why Lisa was fired. What a nightmare she is. All that screaming and crying and cussing – good grief. She said she was always upfront and not sneaky…then she says she knows when to use her emotions and cries when needed and has temper tantrums when needed. How is that not sneaky? She was appaling and hard to watch and scary sometimes. Glad she is not in the finals.

I used to like Lisa L-until I saw this show. Aubrey is NOT CA material. She is a shameless self promoter. DA is about raising $$$ for your charity-and if that is the case-she should have been fired weeks ago. Arsenio and Clay should be left-but they will probably put Aubrey and Arsenio in the finals just for the entertainment.

What show did you watch, Aubrey was the only celebrity that trashed everyone and very nasty. She trashed wardrobes, age, their careers, she deserved everything and more that Arsensio gave her. She is horrible and should not be in final 2

Teresa flew under the radar long enough. Aubrey not getting canned was a surprise, but then again Trump is always dazzled looks and youth. As he ask Lisa who picked the clothes “if you lose who should I fire”? Aubrey was the leader clothes, design, all of it again and didn’t get a whiff. Clay will probably be next. Which sets the stage for Aubrey and Arsenio.

I have no sympathy for Lisa L being out of the Celebrity Apprentice. She had done damage to herself and her reputation. C’mon she is trying to sell herself to be the next Celebrity Apprentice. I must say, with all the bullying you have done, its just karma that set you out of the door. You are next Clay, you will the next to be fired!

I was soooooooooooooo happy to see Lisa get the axe. Her business approach has been awful during the entire show. I was also happy to Teresa get the axe as well because she didn’t bring much to the show. I also feel that Clay is a follower and would like to see Arsenio win.

FINALY a comment that makes sense. I think Clay and Arsenio should be the top 2 – but have a feeling (for entertainments sake), Donald STUMP (no typo there) will keep Aubrey and let Clay go. He LIKES the “heat” (in more ways then one) that Aubrey brings – but Aubrey lied – she said she was a natural red-head…..NOT – 2 weeks ago, you could plainly see her DARK roots! She also lied saying SHE came up with Donald’s quote for the colgne task. It was Arsenio that brought it to her attention on a laptop. She is a bully, conceited, backstabbing twit. If Clay & Arsenio aren’t the final 2 – I am done watching CA for the rest of this season AND for good because then I would feel Donald STUMP is bringing the wrong kind of attention to his show and reputation if he keeps Aubrey – but hey! What does he care? He doesn’t have to worry about his next meal – he can just file another bankruptcy! LOL

Clay defends Lisa in his NBC blog.

He’s definitely a follower. Lisa tried to enlist both Dee and Penn in her drama, but neither one would give her the time of day. She snagged Clay, however, and now he’s extolling Lisa. What a fool. Does he support Lisa calling Dayana a sp*c? Wonder how Clay would feel if Lisa had called him a f*g? I doubt he would defend that. Hypocrite!

Hi Megan – – – -I want t Clay to win also. Have a feeling that the Donald will fire Clay, because Aubrey & Arsenio will keep the screen heated because of their disagreements. Clay isn’t just a good singer he is also VERY smart. I think it would be a mistake for the Donald to let Clay go. But have a feeling he will.

If Lisa was the pig then Aubry is the piglet.It is always I and me with her until her team looses, then it was someone else at fault. Lisa got fired because of who she is and how she acted on the show. Aubry will be the next to go because of her all about me attitude and her lies. Clay is a follower and tries to fly under the radar so I do not see him as the winner. Arsenio seems to have the most to offer so I hope he wins. He raised the most money for his charity of the final three so if its about the money, Arsenio is the winner.

Arsenio would have raise $150,00 more if Jay Lenos
check had not gone to Arsenios office first. By the
Messenger with the check reached him it was seconds
too late to be counted in the total.

Arsenio needs to win celebrity apprentice. He is a hard worker and is very serious about his charity. Although Clay has been fairly quiet, he is also about his charity. Either one winning would be fine with me Aubrey is about herself and promoting herself!! In spite of all her creativity,she doesn’t seem to win. She is all about “me” Her name should be aubme….narcissistic as she can get!! I hope she is let go next week!!! so glad that Lisa L was let go!! I have lost a lot of respect for her. She was nasty!! and she is jealous of any woman that is pretty.I believe Aubrey has kept the ratings up and she is the girl you love to hate! You just never know what garbage will come out of her mouth next.

Lisa is a strong player but that is also her downfall. She is unfit to be an example of a business person. She is a bully, liar, mean and discriminates against some groups. She can get away with things in comedy that do not belong in businerss. All her temper tantrums and crying are embarrassing as a professional anything. If someone else had been the one doing that, the bitch would have tried to make a fool of them. She is despicable and not funny she is just the dirtiest in her act.

Teresa should have been fired long ago. She is truly an IDIOT and didn’t bring much to the show.

Lisa was definitely a great competitor however, all the emotional breakdowns and bullying of Dayana were uncalled for. She went over-board with the attacks and the respect level I had for her at the start of the season towards the end dwindled significantly.

Arsenio seems to be the most passionate about his charity from what we saw in regards to the interviews, but I don’t think he was the greatest performer within all the tasks and often he did take “safe” un-assuming roles.

Clay has impressed me throughout the season. I had preconceived notions that Clay was going to be eliminated early on and that was not the case. He brought his A-Game and desserves to be in the final two.

Lastly Aubrey was truly a force to reckon with. Every task she was all over it. She might be very self centered at times, but she truly contributed more than her fair share. She too shattered my initial assumptions and should be in the final two.

According to Mr. Trump, LISA was fired because she CRIED in the board room. I mean, lets be REALY HONEST. It had nothing to do with how she got along with DIANA. HE SAID THAT BOTH MARLEE AND JOHN SAID she was AN EXCEPTIONAL PLAYER in the game,.in fact she was the ONLY apprentice that got a ‘HANDS DOWN’ perfect recommendation from the former apprentices. DONALD TRUMP interjected the ‘EMOTIONAL’ topic, since he has final say. WELL if ‘CRYING IN THE BOARD ROOM’ gets you fired,. LETS ALL CONGRADULATE CLAY AIKEN, winner of THE APPRENTICE! because BOTH AUBREY and ARSENO have both CRIED in Donalds board room! YOU can say what you want about LISA. Call her a fat ** if it makes you happy.. whatever!!.. Here is a hard fact! LISA represented the demographic for TRUMPS show! Congrats Donald, you just fired your target audience attraction! How on EARTH is Arseno Hall still in the running? By staying under the radar of course! The HEAD-2-HEAD finale SHOULD have been Aubrey Vs. Lisa. But that would be ‘fair’, wouldn’t it? Yeah..and as you know.. all of these shows are RIGGED for ratings!! I won’t watch the finale. I will simply catch the results! BAD move Donald. Really bad move!!

What show did you watch, Lisa was horrible and mean. She was way to emotional as both former apprentice did say . She was bi polar in personality and was not the least creative. she talked a good game but only was on the winning group of three of thirteen challenges. She sucked and would have been gone earlier but ratings and her big loud, rude, obnoxious mouth got her there. Good riddance and she is not any demographic i would acknowledge. Maybe the mean nasty group

Target demographic ? Lisa isnt anyone’s target demographic unless you are mean, vindictive, cruel and sadistic? nobody would have watch aubrey and lisa head to head final. That sound you would have heard is the demographic audience turning off their TV sets. Nobody wants either to win, are you a relative of Lisa’s
