    She and her posse laughed about the whole kaboodle on her (XM?) radio show. It's linked at Best Week Ever. Rosie takes the high road, mostly expressing her adoration for Cyndi as a friend, while laughing at The Donald's anti-Rosie obsession/ability to insert insults on her weight into any scenario.

    Interesting episode.
    Brett seemed competant last week. My opinion, he agreed to be on a few episodes, got his big donation, provide some drama and then he is gone. Seems scripted.
    Some of the guys, hard to read, but Michael, Curtis, and maybe Straw might be good.
    Rod - please be fired, you are annoying. Sinbad - so disorganized, glad he is gone.
    Women - Cyndi seems so annoying. project leader did well. Summer seems good. Holly - like her, but still think she is totally aware of taking care of herself.
    Still don't like Donald, like his kids though.
    such a guilty pleasure to watch.

    I saw an interview with her today. Apparently she dated Jerry Seinfeld long ago, became a writer on his show, and when asked if the character of Elaine was based on her, she said partly.

    She said the nicest person on the show was Bret Michaels, who was the only one to call her after she was "fired."

    She said Cyndi Lauper is really crazy (not necessarily in a bad way).

    They are starting this week's show with the promise of more crazy Brett.

    Why can't Summer Sanders put a sentence together? I mean, she graduated from Stanford. Didn't she more than just swim to get her degree?

    Both teams completely missed the mark. So far this has been a pretty bad season. I've felt like every task had such mediocre results that neither team really deserved to win.

    As for Darryl, he has basically looked bored out of his mind the entire time, so clearly he was thinking that he has a million better things to do and seized the opportunity to get out of there.

    The former governor of Illinois (not that he ever mentions that ) is a ridiculous human being. A friend suggested that there be a drinking game, one shot every time he refers to being governor. It would guarantee passing out within ten minutes of an episode starting!

    I'm not getting why Cyndi is so terrible. The esteemed Governor is the one who can't shut up and work, not her--and the guys aren't complaining. If she is that bad, they aren't editing it very well to show us. The woman was dragging a park bench on a cart by herself and somehow she's not doing enough?

    Amusing episode, but not as good as other seasons.
    Cyndi - her questions with the detectives were a waste of time, but her other stuff seems ok. Could be editing. Weren't the other girls annoyed with Cyndi last week, but now seem defending her?
    Not sure with the ladies when Summer was talking/tripping, they were giving her a chance, or wanting her to fail? Not sure.
    The Men - plz get rid of the governor. yes a drinking game whenever he sez he was gov or sez he was innocent, one would get quite plastered.
    Brett - is trying too hard, seems annoying.
    Michael Johnson - bright guy, but too rigid, not creative? He got lucky this week.
    Darryl - wonder if this goes with my theory that certain celebs only sign on for X number of episodes and Darryl's was up. But didn't mess up. Or wondering if he realized he had no business sense and the other guys were more into it.
    Goldberg or Curtis for the top 2 guys?

    I'm not sure that they have captured the true essence of Cyndi, but I could see why some would be annoyed with her. For example in the Kodak challenge she was asking questions that had little to do with the actual task at hand. I could also see them not wanting her to be the spokesperson for something. While she is fun, zany, etc., she doesn't seem to come off as competent for being a spokesperson for a product like the one they were marketing. They have also shown her questioning things that have already been set. Not that it is wrong to question, but she seems to be questioning with no alternatives in mind. Some people can view this trying to undermine or just waste time trying to be heard.

    I can't remember who it was the first show that said it best about Cyndi. When she's on, she's great, but the rest of time she goes into her own little world. I do think that she is a hard worker and probably does have great ideas, but they tend to get lost between her image and her flighty nature. You really do have to know how to deal with her, as she can contribute well.

    I've never met her, but she seems to be a very creative person who probably struggles more with the business end of things. So I don't take the women as dislikin her. It is probably more a case of they don't know what to do with her. She's not a person they want interfacing with the "clients" or in a role where she has to act in a business professional way.

    I don't think she is weakest member of the team or of the show as a whole. Brett Michaels is coming off as much worse. He doesn't seem to be able to direct himself and then becomes snarky about the work of others. Don't even get me started on the ex-governor. What exactly are his talents?

    to hear his team members talk, he is beloved for reasons that havent been explained, like Carl on the Simpsons
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    Apparently, he does not deliver the goods at too early a date...



    (Although perhaps I misunderstood his wording. A few years back, I read Wuthering Heights and was surprised to read lines such as, "Stop that right now!" Catherine ejaculated. Perhaps the X-guv'nor was using Olde Englishe??)

    There was a short ad during a commercial break to call and apply for next season's show....they're going back to "regular" people.

    Supposedly the premise is going to be people who were impacted by the economy. This is the info they sent out for auditions that will be taking place in Atlanta.

    “The Apprentice” is ready to resume its celebrated search to find the best minds in America at a time when employment opportunities are scarce. People of all ages are encouraged to apply, from the newest college graduates to the more experienced over-40s who have been hard hit by this economy. Whether prospects are recently laid-off, long-term unemployed, a graduate with a daunting job search ahead of them, or simply someone who took a job that is just allowing them to survive the economic downturn, the producers encourage applications.

    Prospective executives who feel they have the skills and drive to become “The Apprentice” can apply by either attending one of the program’s nation-wide open calls or by emailing castingnbcapprentice@gmail.com. Applicants are encouraged to explain why they should be the next “Apprentice” and include information regarding how the recession has impacted their lives. Also required is a recent photo as well as name, location and occupation history.

    That was a cool challenge, and thank god the governor is gone, because it was just too uncomfortable to watch him struggle every time he opened his mouth. I will say that I respect that he wouldn't bring Bret into the boardroom based on how well Michaels did with the creative part of the task (even though it completely ensured Rod's elimination). The only reason I would've had Bret in the boardroom would be because he not only didn't really know the Potterverse (loved when the teen girl was talking about the HP 'canon') but totally brushed Blagojevich off when he tried to correct him. But ultimately that was a failing of the governor anyway, that he didn't set that as a high priority and/or assign someone the task of making sure the details were right.

    Glad to see the ladies doing so well again! Of course we can see that they're nowhere near as united as they appear in the boardroom, but this was a great task. Selita did a great job! I loved the effects of the wands jumping out at the kids and when the light and wind came on when they picked up their wands - looked like fun to do as well.

    Tenacity's luck in going to run out soon, though, and I anticipate Cyndi Lauper to go down with a big blowout.

    What a pill that Michael Johnson is! Every single thing out of his mouth was negative. I wish the Guv'ner had taken him back into the boardroom so Mikey could have sprinted all the way home...

    It looked like the men sat around a lot and waited for something to do. They should have spent that time at a computer and learning anything and everything they could have about Harry Potter. To me, all of them were responsible for not knowing much more about their task.

    Tenacity's luck will run out now probably because in order for the team to have even numbers, they'll have to carry one of the men! And Cyndi for the win!!! "Muggles and wizards! Muggles and wizards!!"

    I agree with this, and if Blago were a better speaker, he could have used this to get one of the others canned...but he really is just atrocious at speaking (which is odd, you'd think a politician who achieved a governorship would be much better at it), and it's true that ultimately, if his team was standing around not doing anything he's the one responsible for not giving them clear expectations. We didn't see any evidence that he told the people who were standing around to do something, so they didn't disobey him.

    What's going on between Goldberg and Trump in the boardroom? Goldberg really didn't like Trump saying, "You didn't almost faint? No one does that!" And Goldberg glared at him. And Trump noticed the glare, said "Sheesh" and shook his head.

    Michael Johnson is really, really serious and kind of gloomy. I wonder what he does now?

    Trump really is an asshat extraordinaire. I think he was trying to goad Goldberg into providing an explosive boardroom and Goldberg is onto it and refused to give him what he wanted. I expect more harping on Goldberg from Trump.
