Plus, Omarosa breaks down in tears — again. Is she stable enough to stay in the competition?
Just when you thought All-Star Celebrity Apprentice couldn’t get any more dramatic, Donald Trump literally forced his contestants to move their competition onto a live stage, with LaToya Jackson and Stephen Baldwin leading the two teams. Needless to say, not everyone was deserving of an encore.
The drama began immediately for LaToya’s team, as Omarosa left after one day for a “family emergency.” As it turns out, Michael Clarke Duncan‘s 9-1-1 call — which captured the final moments of Omarosa’s fiancé’s life — was going to be aired on national television, and she had apparently worked very hard not to get that released to the public.
For Stephen’s team, the drama came from an unlikely source: Gary Busey! Though he put forth his best effort with a smile on his face, Gary was almost-unanimously voted the weakest member of his team come boardroom-time. Stephen and Marilu Henner, among others, threw Gary under the bus — and he was pissed.
Did Omarosa’s Absence Cause Her Team To Lose?
The Crystal Light executives liked Stephen’s team’s performance, but were confused as to why the director chose to save Susan Lucci‘s entrance for the very end. As for LaToya’s team, the exes loved the “cheesy soap opera scene,” but worried things got “too” creative. Ultimately, they preferred Stephen’s team’s production, sparing that group from being fired.
Suspicious of Omarosa — as we all should be — Arsenio Hall grilled the reality TV villain about her decision to leave after the first day. She immediately started bawling, repeating that she will “unapologetically” choose her late fiancé over anyone any day. Donald noted that, if she had stayed in the competition, it’s possible they could have won.
LaToya Jackson Is Fired
In what Donald called one of the strangest boardroom selections in Apprentice history, LaToya asked Dennis Rodman and Brande Roderick to return with her. When asked why she didn’t bring Omarosa back, LaToya said she was convinced the TV villain would have lied her way to safety.
In the end, her instincts failed her, and LaToya was fired.
HollywoodLifers, did LaToya deserve to be fired? Do you think Omarosa is using her fiancé’s death to her advantage? Drop a comment with your reaction to this episode, and your predictions for the rest of the season.
