Plus, John Rich returns to wrangle in the final five contestants.
The May 5 episode of All-Star Celebrity Apprentice hit very close to home, as Donald Trump tasked the remaining competitors with designing a suite based on the Foxwoods Resort, then throwing a party at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. (By “close to home,” I mean my apartment is three-ish stops away from Barclays Center — in case you want to stalk me, or send me any of your dollars.)
Marilu Henner and Lisa Rinna were named project managers, and as you can imagine, the claws came out in the boardroom — but they weren’t scratching at each other!
Boardroom Battle: Marlu Henner Vs. Lil Jon
Lil Jon described Marilu’s leadership as “interesting,” hinting that she might have been a little too hands-on. In retaliation, she revealed she “didn’t trust” Lil Jon during the competition. She then claimed that Trace Adkins acted “curmudgeonly,” which also apparently hurt the team.
Lisa and Penn Jillette pretty much just sat silent on the other end of the table, confident in their success. In fact, the pair only spoke to praise one another.
The executives unanimously picked Lisa and Penn’s project as the winner, bringing Lisa past a $500,000 milestone in fund-raising for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Who Got Fired?
Marilu ended up hearing the Donald’s two favorite — and most-dreaded — words this week. Once again, a project manager was punished for its entire team’s crime.
