Celebrity Apprentice: Who Got Fired?
There was no storybook ending for this episode of Celebrity Apprentice.
This time out, Donald Trump had the two teams write a children's story and perform it in front of a group of four and five-year-old kids.
Sounds easy enough for a showy group comprised of performers and public figures, right? Yeah, not so much...Heading up the men's team this time was Meat Loaf, who stepped up as the project manager for Team Backbone, and told the story of a sad Lil' Jon. Meanwhile, Lisa Rinna took the reigns for Team A.S.A.P. (or tried to) to spin the tale of a lion who had lost his roar.
Following a brief spat between Gary Busey and Mr. Loaf, the men's team got along as best they could. However, when Rinna's Team A.S.A.P. jetted over to their rehearsal space (where Latoya Jackson practiced her lion's roar), lioness Dionne Warwick cut everyone down to size (specifically Rinna).
But that wasn't the end of Warwick's wrath. Warwick and Rinna nemesis Star Jones insisted their names be on the cover of their team's children's book (this came after Warwick told Marlee Matlin kids weren't ready to see a deaf lion character in the book).
"The story was conceived by Dionne Warwick, written by Star Jones. Give credit where it's due," Warwick snapped at Rinna.
Come boardroom time, Team Backbone's sad rapper managed to outweigh Team A.S.A.P.'s roarless lion, giving them the win.
While the Donald took a little time to complement Rinna on her "new lips", he was not in the mood to sympathize with her behavior during the challenge and, hence, gave her the boot.
"When you lose you have to pick up the chips, and I don't think you really picked up the chips," Trump said to Rinna. "Lisa, you're fired."
