Tonight at 9p Penn Gillette and Trace Adkins are vying to be the winner of Celebrity Apprentice, but only one of them will be #1 All-Star on the NBC show. If they are truly going by the sales of the ice cream, then I would have to say that Trace (my choice) is going to win because I can’t find his ice cream anywhere near me. I was able to find a few of Penn’s at some of the stores, but I had no luck with Trace’s. But we know it isn’t only about the sales of the Delish Ice Cream, and tonight we will find out what Donald Trump was looking for from his All-Stars to be his #1 man!
I was on a conference call with the three men and each of them described what they admired about the other one. The country singer said “I just straight up from an animalistic caveman type of view of this whole situation Penn Jillette is probably, no offense Mr. Trump, probably the most brilliant individual that I have in my rolodex. Just I’ve been a fan of his and friend of his for a few years now and I’ve just had the most respect for the quality of work that he’s done over the year and, you know, he’s a smart, smart guy; multi-talented, you know. That’s enough accolades for him.”
So what did the Vegas Magician have to say, he said “Trace is wicked smart; very, very talented; has the best voice in country music; and he’s also honest. And that is a quality that can be lost on this show and I think that, you know, if there’s one thing this show can be proud of I think it’s that someone as honest as Trace can do this well on the show. It kind of shows that the backstabbing and the disingenuous spins doesn’t necessarily get you to win. And I love that and I’m proud about that.”
And what did Trump have to say about both men, he said ” One thing that is a little bit different is these two guys I believe really like each other. Usually we have people that get into the finals that don’t like each other. I usually like that better by the way but I won’t say that. But usually we have people that do not like each other in the finals. These two people really like each other.”
Although if Trace would’ve had his way when he was picking his team in the first episode, we might’ve had a different final two. As he explained, “I’m not really surprised but I have to say from day one when I showed up and I got to peruse the cast I thought if I was going to win this thing that Penn was going to be the man I was going to have to beat. And that’s why I chose him first when I was given the opportunity to choose my team I picked him. And then I was going to pick Omarosa and use her to dispatch Penn. But Bret picked her and I knew immediately he’d made a mistake and she cut his throat the first week.” Could you imagine Omarosa going after a man who is twice her size? He might be one of the few people who could magically make her disappear.
So even though tonight is the season finale, Trump says he already casting for next season. Even though NBC has yet to confirm it is happening.
Yesterday on The Celebrity Apprentice before Donald Trump announced who won the challenge, he asked the All-Stars if he should change his hair. In a word “YES!!!”
Not only did he ask if his hair should be styled more like his son Eric’s, he also spent some time joking about how it’s real and not a comb over. As he put it is a “comb back, forward and back.” So that is what it is? Now we have a better understanding of what that thing is that lives on the top of his head.
Celebrity Apprentice is back on NBC tonight at 9p with an All-Star edition. They are Trace Adkins, Dee Snider, Dennis Rodman, Omarosa, Penn Jillette, Gary Busey, LaToya Jackson, Lil Jon, Stephen Baldwin, Marilu Henner, Lisa Rinna, Brande Roderick, Claudia Jordan and Bret Michaels. And it should be an interesting season.
Recently I was on a conference call with Donald Trump to talk about this season and I asked why this group of All-Stars. He said, “It has just been a chemistry thing. We wanted the right chemistry. You never know if it’s going to work but we picked people and the chemistry really did work.” He explained to someone else on the call, “Well it just seemed good. You know, we’ve had so many people that have done so well on the show. They didn’t win but they did really well and they were really liked by the audience because ultimately it is about them being liked by the audience.”
But there is one winner who returned to play the game and Trump told us how he reacted when he heard Bret Michaels coming back. He said, “Bret already won it. And to be honest I was a little surprised that Bret, because the others are sitting next to me as my advisors, the other winners. And Bret really wanted to go on the show and really make a lot of money for his charity and that took a lot of courage.” Then he added, “As somebody that won the show, I was surprised. I don’t think I would have done it. But as somebody that had won the show and then to go back for a second I think took a lot of courage. And he did that because of his, you know, you raise a lot of money for your charity. And I think it’s going to end up being very good for him too. We’ll see how that all turns out.”
He also summarized the rest of the cast before highlighting just one of them. The Firer said, “Well it’s a strong cast. It’s a very smart group of people. They’re people that have done well in life and also in the show, for the most part in the show and in life in all cases. It’s a very nasty show.” Then he explained why, “I mean, there are some deals, Omarosa is extremely nasty I can tell you. I’m a big fan of Omarosa by the way, I love Omarosa. But she was brutal.”
We will have to tune in tonight and every Sunday at 9p to see just how brutal she is and how the rest of the All-Stars do their second time around Trump Towers. I know I am looking forward to it because this is just one of the very few competition shows I am still watching. I only watch this one, Hell’s Kitchen and that’s it and I used to watch almost all of them.
For decades we have pondered about the wonder that is known as the Donald Trump‘s hair and now with one picture of him voting we understand it a little bit more. The tycoon was bent over as someone took a picture of him voting, for who I assume was Roseanne Barr, and we got to see what is probably one of the longest comb-overs in the world. You can see where the front of his hair is flipped back like a pompadour to cover the top of his head. What is under it, like maybe that is where he probably keeps a lot of his money, is a still a mystery. That is something that only him and his hairdresser know.
So we might not have gotten Obama’s college and passport records like he would’ve liked, but we got a glimpse of his hair secret which I think is worth so much more than $5 million.
Yesterday Donald Trump made Barack Obama the offer that if he releases his college and passport records, he will donate $5 million
to the charity of the President’s choice. Well the offer was such a joke, that almost every late night show made fun of the man with the worst hair in the world. Jay Leno actually had The President on The Tonight Show and asked him about Trump. Stephen Colbert made the mogul an offer on The Colbert Report that I hope he doesn’t refuse. Although I would love to see Colbert’s face on the Colbert Report if he says yes. On Jimmy Kimmel Live they made it into an animated Charlie Brown holiday. Conan O’Brien had some good jokes about it. And even overseas NMA animated the tale and actually made Trump’s hair look better.
So does the boss of Celebrity Apprentice realize what a joke he became? Nope he is only retweeting the positive spins on his ludicrous offer. I don’t know what is in the hairspray he uses, but I hope he never stops using it.
Adam Carolla was unjustly fired from The Celebrity Apprentice on Sunday and yesterday he was on The Tonight Show talking about his former-boss’ hair. Let’s just say no one has ever toupeed, I mean topped, the way he described it. He drew a picture of the mogul by saying, he is “Don King, but with worse hair.” The Man Show man then went on to say what it is like to see his hair in person. It sounds like an experience, I oddly enough want to have the pleasure of saying I have visited at least once in my life.
A few years ago Donald Trump had a verbal war with Rosie O’Donnell, which I think is still going on, and now it looks like he is starting one with another talk show host. This time the victim is David Letterman. The Celebrity Apprentice boss Tweeted this today, “David Letterman’s show has become so boring and mundane. Somehow, every time I look, I can’t help thinking of his world-shattering poor performance at the Academy Awards a number of years ago. Anyway, I hope he gets it together. @LateShow” No reason was given why he turned against someone he used to like, but I am assuming it is because the CBS late night host is opting not to book him on the show. I mean it isn’t like Letterman hasn’t been making fun of Trump for a long time about his hair and running for President, so why start something now and not back then?
I can’t wait to see if and how Letterman will respond to Trump because I would be surprised if he didn’t and you know what he says will be good.
Where is Betty White when you really need her because if anyone needed the Golden Girl at Password it is Donald Trump. Yesterday on NBC’s Late Night, Jimmy Fallon challenged Donald Trump to a game of Password. The late night host played with Teresa Giudice and the Celebrity Apprentice boss played with Dee Snider. Trump was so bad at you can’t even say “You’re fired” to him because he couldn’t even get that clue. Seriously remember when he wanted to Trademark his catchphrase, well when the Twisted Sister singer said, “You’re” to him he responded with “hair”. Yeah he was that horrible. So spend the next few minutes watching the World’s Worst Password Player attempt to play the game. It almost makes you feel bad for him.
On a positive note Celebrity Apprentice is back on NBC this Sunday and after watching the season premiere I think this is going to be the best season yet.
Donald Trump is a grandfather again because his daughter Ivanka has given birth to her first child today. The Celebrity Apprentice star Tweeted, “This morning @jaredkushner and I welcomed a beautiful and healthy little baby girl into the world. We feel incredibly grateful & blessed. Thank you all for your support and well wishes!” No name was given, but I wonder if since her mother is Ivana and she is Ivanka if it will be in the Ivan family of names.
You know with her parents good looks and money-know-how, you know the nameless socialite is going to take the world by storm in 2030!
BTW can you believe that picture of Trump’s oldest daughter was taken four days because she doesn’t look like she is just days away from having her baby.
UPDATE: The proud grandpa Tweeted his granddaughter’s name, “Congratulations to my daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared on the birth of their daughter Arabella Rose yesterday.” I love that name because it is so beautiful!
Yesterday NBC said that Celebrity Apprentice will be back for another season next year. They then added that if Donald Trump decided to run for President, they would bring the show back with someone else in the boardroom.
Well I guess that announcement meant a lot to The Donald because he announced during NBC’s Upfronts that he will not be running for President and continuing on with The Apprentice.
As an Entertainment Blogger I am really bummed about his decision. He would’ve been the only candidate, I actually knew anything about. C’mon tell me I am not the only let down about him not running?
Now back to the NBC reality show, I am Team Marlee! I really hope she wins on Saturday because she deserves it for raising $1 million for the Starkey Hearing Foundation.
