The Celebrity Apprentice: Week Eleven

29 Apr

April 29, 2012

Penn was fired last week, and as far as I am concerned it was long overdue.  Of the remaining six, Clay is my pick to win it all. Dayana and Teresa are the classic examples of just sliding along by not standing out. 

The show began with some gloating by Aubrey, of course. You know that helicopter Trump gets out of on the show opening? I’d love to see him land it on Aubrey’s head. BTW- I won’t repeat what Aubrey said about her charity because it is a worthy cause and I do not want to appear to belittle it, but it was total self-serving bullshit. COMPLETE and OBVIOUS bullshit. Especially the comment about what she has on her bedroom wall.

THE TASK: Write and produce a 90 second jingle for Good Sam’s roadside service
THE PROJECT MANAGERS: Dayana with Clay and Lisa, Arsenio with Aubrey and Teresa.

This should have been Clay’s task all the way but he was PM last week. Dayana is not, shall we say, musically inclined. And it was funny when Trump forgot that Aubrey was a singer. I feel (just a little) sorry for Teresa being stuck between Arsenio and Aubrey. Aubrey is already, at only 15 minutes into the show, being a jerk.

Aubrey’s I mean Arsenio’s team is doing a cheerleader theme. Dayana’s team is doing a sixties song, which Dayana does not like.

Dayana is out of her league. Clay knows the music, Lisa can do the jingle, Dayana can, um , stay out their way. Clay to Lisa: “I might kill Dayana.”

Meanwhile, Don Junior showed up and Aubrey talked crap about Arsenio to him and Don Jr. was taken aback. “I’ve never seen anything like that (complaining about the PM) without being in the boardroom or even knowing if you won or lost.” This will not help her.

Don Junior was lucky to also be present with the other team when Lisa threw a tantrum over Dayana’s comments. She called Dayana “a little bitch.” “You are out of line, as usual, again!” Lisa stalked out.

Don has had better days on this show.

Meanwhile, Arsenio keeps saying how he can’t believe how Aubrey has changed and become a team player. We’ve seen what she says when he is not around. He should not believe it.

So how were the performances? Clay’s old school jingle was, IMHO, too old-fashioned. Aubrey’s Arsenio’s was too aggressive and annoying. Of the two I think Dayana’s team won.

The Boardroom began at 10:20 with Trump trying to stir up trouble between Arsenio and Aubrey. They both took the high road.

When Lisa was asked who should be fired if they lose, she of course said Dayana. Then she lost no time attacking her. It started calmly but did not stay that way for very long. It might have backfired on her since the more calm Dayana stayed, the more it made her point about Lisa being an angry bully. And the fight went on for a very long time, over 20 minutes.

AND AUBREY, FOR SOME REASON, jumped into the fight and what did she say? How good she was. Then she defended Lisa. Why? Because she was out of the spotlight too long.

In the midst of the chaos, Trump asked Arsenio if he would like to trade Aubrey for Dayana. He said he’d prefer Aubrey. That tells you how little everyone thinks of Dayana because were I Arsenio I might have jumped at that.

THE WINNER: Arsenio/Aubrey/Teresa. Things look really bad for Dayana.

And it was all bad. “Dayana, you’re fired.”

NEXT WEEK: A photo shoot. and two people get fired.
