    Well it won't be Star because we still haven't seen our Star-NeNe show down. Lisa sucked but I'm guessing Dionne is going because we can still get some drama with Lisa and Star. Can't see them editing in Dionne's rather ugly character and letting her stay over Lisa.

    Having said that I expected a lot more from Lisa after the way she acted last week.

    Looks like I was wrong. I think Lisa sucked but Dionne is just nasty.

    Lisa sucks at the boardroom the way Amanda sucks at tribal council

    Dionne should be going home for being mean and useless

    Lisa has no fight. How does she negotiate her show biz contracts?

    I do not like Dionne or Starr, ugh, more of them? Lisa had a good head on her shoulders but backed off of real street fighting with those two, she should have battled it out.

    She makes me want to slap the smirk off her face.



    That would make me mean and useful.

    Can't say I disagree with letting Lisa go, but Dionne has a long way to go before I would trust her on the team. Starr's personality speaks for itself. She is a game player, but her tactics are obvious and I'm hoping one of the remaining women can beat her at that game. Her legal tactics of questioning would be intimidating in the board room. So that means two or more have to stand up against her. I'm not sure who that will be in the end, other than Nene and possibly Marlee. The other women aren't looking strong enough.

    Dionne is just being bitchy. There is no strategy to it. She's just mean. I loved Marlee's line about having been told that Dionne is a legend and reminding Trump that she is deaf and not familiar with Dionne's music. I smiled at that.

    In my opinion, Lisa messed up by bringing them both in the board room. She was not going to win against Starr this early on in the game. The smarter thing to do would have been to have fought against Dionne and made it about the theme being the reason they lost. She could have used Marlee's dislike and experience instead of bringing in two people who were against her. If she had fought to the best of her abilities with both Starr and Dionne in the room, she was still splitting her argument between them and having to be defensive about her own lack of control. Bringing in only one of the two would mean that she would have been able to just argue against the one. Trump would have been surprised by it, but she could get Marlee's support before Trump sent her out of the room to focus on Lisa and Dionne. It might not have saved her, but she would have stood a better chance.

    Lisa and David Cassidy both lost it in the Boardroom. They didn't fight nearly hard enough. :wall:

    I laughed when I saw that it was centered around Camping World. My parents practically live that that store. :lol:


    If there's a pattern in this show, its that Trump hates anyone he perceives as a wimp. So the strategy if you want to win is to be as self-aggrandizing as possible.

    I feel bad for Lisa but she handled the boardroom terribly.

    Trump outdid himself in the boardroom when "complimenting" her on how much better she looked now that her lips were more normal.

    Dionne+Star = evil bitches. :EVILLE:

    A total LOL moment when Trump asks Marlee how she doesn't know Dionne Warwick is a music legend. Her response? I'M DEAF!

    I haven't seen this show in a long time, but caught some of it tonight.

    I can't imagine why anyone ever would hire Star Jones. I can't imagine anyone every being willing to work for her or with her. She's obnoxious and arrogant, and not even particularly talented.

    Dionne is almost as obnoxious, and useless.

    Sigh. During the challenge it seemed clear the men would win. Partially because of editing, but also the guys had way more creativity in their story and presentation. Getting the kids involved in the singalong probably sealed it, even if some of the kids looked terrified at having glitter thrown on them by a couple of drag queens.

    I had hope during the board room that Dionne would go, but Lisa was abysmal in defending herself, and even when Marlee spoke up, she made it personal instead of pointing out that Dionne was completely ignorant during the story brainstorming.

    I could not believe that (then again, I totally could, sigh). Mr Trump? Following up with "I probably should not have said that" does not make it ok. :rolleyes:

    I disagree - Lisa had to bring two people back, and there were two people who had taken credit for the two elements that arguably lost the task. bringing anyone else back would have been a big mistake (I also don't think Marlee would have been any help, as she was thinking very personally about getting rid of Dionne rather than strategically). Lisa totally could have gotten rid of Dionne, who also did not do well in the previous challenge, but she totally fell apart.

    Um.....I found NeNe really amusing in the episode. Does that make me a bad person? and now that Lisa's gone, I bet she picks up the slack on the one liners, big time.

    Oh, and I'm shocked at how little we're seeing the Playmate of the Year on this show.



    Conseco is such a major tool.

    :watch: Such trash. I'm hooked.

    Dionne is the sourest and angriest of sour and angry old women! Wow, my view of her has gone down down down in just two weeks.

    Mr. Loaf FTW! Nene and McGrath for final 3! Or Marlee ... 's dorky cute interpreter.

    ITA, re: Trump's :rolleyes: making a point to "compliment" Lisa on her lips. Poor thing went through hell with that, and he probably well knows that. So is "your lips look better" now the Apprentice equivalent of the American Idol damning praise "you look beautiful tonight"?

    :rofl: Gary Busey as PM next week. For that gift, I'd like to thank the Easter Bunny, who obviously arrived early this year.

    I am fascinated by Busey's enormous chompers. :wideeyes:

    if it is a $ raising task, I expect the women to win regardless of what they do. Star appears to have pics of a bunch of rich people with donkeys in tijuana.

    I can only imagine what would happen if Dionne's niece, Whitney Houston, had been a contestant this season, as well. :scream:

    I used to think Dionne was an elegant classy lady, but no more. She comes across as really ignorant and rude. I hope she gets the role of PM next week. I'm sure Star will bend over backwards to help her out though. I felt like I was watching Survivor Island as the black women teamed up to form an alliance (except for maybe LaToya), appoint a PM, and then sabotage her efforts to win. That seems to be Star's mode of operation, to eliminate her team members one by one, as opposed to trying to win as a team.

    I'd like to see Star Jones and Richard Hatch working together on the same project. That should make some good TV. He's not going to let her steamroll over him.

    Did anyone else see earlier in the show when Dionne yelled at Marlee's interpretor asking him not to talk so much, and he said something like it's not me, it's Marlee talking. Duh, how stupid!

    My point is that she (Lisa) set herself up for failure by bringing in two people who were obviously supporting each other. At that point, she needed to ignore one and go after the other. I think she would have had a better shot at that with someone less ready for a fight against her. Instead of building a case against either of them, she spent her time in the board room foolishly trying to defend herself against their attacks.

    Starr's tactics for fighting back are classic. Trump even allows her to speak directly to the other contestants in a way that could/would intimidate many. Looking at Lisa, she fell right into Starr's trap. Nobody was blaming Starr in front of Trump, but she was doing most all the talking and blaming. Because of that alone, Starr is not the person you would strategically want to call in the board room unless she was on your side.

    in retrospect, whitney growing up to be a crack ho is not so shocking. if dionne is ever project manager, i wouldnt be surprised to see her break a bottle in half and try to cut one of her team members.

    Dionne responded to him as though he was voicing his own opinion - it's pretty hard to get used to someone one speaking and never, ever speaking for themselves, so I kind of gave her a pass for that. Although it was during the fight about not scaring children with deafness, so than again...not.

    And my point is that there was no one else who realistically could have been on the hook for this failure. Bringing someone else in instead of either Star or Dionne would have been (rightly) viewed as a terrible decision, and that in itself could have led trump to dismiss Lisa. She possibly could have brought in only one of them, but again, it would have been such an obvious avoidance tactic Trump would have seen through it.

    I didn't care for Dionne's attitude/behavior.
    However, Lisa did such a poor job of defending herself that her departure was assured.

    I'm not looking forward to a Gary Busey's apparent antics next week.

    What? LaToya's black? :shuffle: But, yeh, that's defintely Star's strategy ... target a teammate each week and convince others that said target is the weak link. If the team loses (and let's face it, a snake in the hen coop will make losing more likely), Star has set said target up for firing. If the team wins, Star has theoretically eliminated said target from usurping the challenge "win" from her cold little hands.

    Yes, and even better if Hatch could find some excuse to be naked, ala his Survivor tenure. :kickass: must-see TV if Star had to deal with that. Or, wait, maybe Star would thrive under that scenario .. she's had prior experience with a naked gay man.

    :lol: Morning after, and I'm still pretty floored at how "street" and surly Dionne is. Even despite her Psychic Friends endeavors, I'd always seen her as classy; but, now, Apprentice has exposed her nasty personality, and prompted bloggers and such to bundle and re-publicize the apparently MANY questionable things she's done over the years ...

    ... including income tax owed in the millions of dollars, using hundreds of thousands of dollars raised for AIDS prevention/treatment for herself*, loving the pleasure of a doobie, and of course (though no fault of her own) being Whitney's cousin. :shuffle:

    *I'll still give her credit there, as DW was a key voice for AIDS awareness and fundraising back when.

    Star is a lawyer, and she knows exactly how to rip her enemies to shreds in the boardroom. She's a fake, phony bitch.

    Trump :rolleyes: :scream:

    Trump :rofl: :scream:

    Keeps us breathless with anticipation, re: whether he'll make a run for President of the United States.

    what a complete tool from toolville. he doesn't know why women do that to themselves? um....to impress crappy $$$$$$$ guys like trump and try to keep them from ditching them for a younger model?

    Aside from that, there was zero point to his video, he didn't say anything new about the episode, and his whole "I'm bored with this show I'd rather figure out if I should run for President" was beyond lame.

    yeesh :scream:

    I don't know that Trump should spend that much energy commenting on Lisa's lips as it just draws attention to the fact he doesn't have any.

    I just have vague memories of Dionne on some variety show that had puppets that looked like her. Never warmed to her but had NO idea she was such a difficult bitch :eek:

    I had NO idea that Gary Busey was practically deaf and had been in a horrendous brain injuring accident years ago. That would explain a LOT of things!

    But probably right. The branding was a fail and she did give Dionne permission to stop off at Bed Bath and Beyond on her way to Home Depot for some astroturf with only an hour to go. They lost it on the branding and the greenery which really were her fault.

    I didn't know Ivanka was pregnant.

    Just read the Wikipedia page of her husband: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jared_Kushner A lot of hilarious gems in that biography. They could not be more perfectly matched, imo.
