    Celebrity Apprentice

    I don't understand why the women thought the name "Prowess" would somehow be considered catty.

    I have a feeling I'll be rooting for George Takei.

    I think Cheryl Tiegs would have the most recognizable face.

    I love Lisa Lampanelli, so I'm totally rooting for her

    I hope George Takei speaks up and makes a move as I'd like to see him do well.

    The only thing I could figure out about "Prowess" was that it sort of sounds like "prowl" which is something cats do?!?

    If George can handle himself well in the boardroom, he'll be fine.

    I just about lost it when someone asked where Victoria Gotti was and Lisa Lampanelli replied that she might be "in the trunk of a Lincoln Continental!"

    $305,000 from one person?? Patricia should come down on those who "held back" donors for their own upcoming tasks.

    Trump may get on Patricia's case for not bringing back Tia.

    I found her completely UNrecognizeable! Even after they said her whole name I was like Who?? Where?!? Although - I do find it heartening that a former supermodel would be willing to become a typical middle aged woman, especially sitting at a table with so much plastic surgery that the room was a certifiable fire hazard.

    Actually, on the women's team, the only person that I both recognize (her name) AND recognize (her face) is Tia Carrere.

    Men's team is working so well together - wonder how long that will last. to Trump and his typical homophobic comments.

    I probably still see Cheryl as being the Cover Girl makeup model I grew up watching (and I'm a lot older than Ivanka and a guy!)

    Why did she go on the show if this "isn't right for me"? If you watch one episode of the Celebrity Apprentice, you know it's cut throat. She doesn't have the killer instinct, to say the least.

    For me she will always be the model in Sports Illustrated who dared to pose for this picture.

    I was in 6th grade when that issue of Sports Illustrated came out and turned all of the stinky, sweaty boys in the class into stinky, sweaty, nipple-obsessed horndogs . All of the mothers were at the brazen hussy who was corrupting their sweet and innocent little boys ( ) with impure thoughts about pulling their pud 24/7 .

    Sad to see Cheryl go,
    However, I have to agree that she seemed uncomfortable with/not suited for this show.

    But Aubrey O'Day has the most followers on Twitter! Pay attention!

    Never mind that right before she announced that, we were thinking of googling to find out who on earth she was.

    I think the men's team is way ahead on recognizable faces.

    I have successfully resisted the impulse to Google her. Glad there's someone else who doesn't know who she is. Sure has a big opinion of herself.

    I still don't know who the hell Aubry O'Day is or why she and her shellacked orange Adele hairdo are on the show.

    And my brother had one of Cheryl Tiegs' posters on his wall for years. I'm really familiar with her - but I still didn't recognize her on the show

    I wonder if The Donald is having a hard time getting women to sign on to the show. The men's team seems like a decent mix of celebrities from different areas, and varying degrees of current popularity/relevance, while the women's team is more of a grab bag of who? I wonder if Trump pulled in a lot of favors - he knows Victoria Gotti, he's got connections to Miss Universe. It might explain how Cheryl got on a show that really wasn't for her if she just did it as a favor.

    ETA: ok, I gave in an googled Aubrey. She was in MTV's Making the Band, and was in the girl group Danity Kane that resulted. Apparently they sold some records, but I don't recall any of their songs. She also was a stage actress before and after that period. What I really needed to know was her age - she's only 28!!!

    I never heard of Aubrey before this episode. Wish I still had never heard of her. Hope The Donald will be saying "You're Fired!" to her real soon.

    Tia's gone before she even got started, thanks to an innocent friendly, agreeable remark that she would be okay if Patricia took her to the boardroom. The Donald and Ivanka have already put her on Your Fired Row.

    Penn and that guy who was on Dancing with the Stars seemed to be trying to lead the guys. They are my early predictions to win the contest. I'd prefer the winner to be George Takei. Can't wait to see him be project manager.

    Didnt Aubrey say to the cameras that her face would be readily recognized because of her double platinum records - I have never seen or heard of her in my life! Did she really think she'd be more recognizable than Cheryl Tiegs.

    I knew it was Cheryl but I had no idea she was 65! Dont know whether it's the HDTV that made her hair look dry and her face a little lumpy, maybe it's the fillers?

    And why now is Theresa Guidice having her last name pronounced differently? I remember from the RHNJ it was pronounced "Jew-dice", and now it's being pronounced more Italian-like.

    I recognized Tia Carerre, Cheryl, Theresa, but that was about it for the women.

    Of the women, I recognized Cheryl, Tia, Victoria and Debbie. I was familiar with all the men. Rooting for George.

    Adam irritates me no end.
    What an ego!

    He fancies himself more important than he is.
    I can't picture him as a leader/good project manager.
    I doubt he'll last; as his "attitude" toward his fellow contestants becomes more obvious.

    Really? I didn't read him that way at all. I think Adam is a tiny bit "autistic-like", in a sense that he just says things as he thinks them. When he had Lisa Lampanelli on his show they laughed that while everyone seemed a little intimidated in the boardroom he would just speak his mind even if not asked. Same with his radio show and comedy act. He said he doesn't act, he just says what he thinks. It didn't sound egoistical or asshol-ish, it's just the way he is. He might not realize how he comes off sometimes but I don't think he means any harm.

    Anyway, I forgot how heavily-edited the show is, I haven't watched in years.

    The women's team. Sigh. The Jersey housewife was supposed to be the most recognizable face? WTF? I'd never seen her and heard about her in my life. Same thing for the little Miss Me. Aubrey WHO? And the way she acts, I can't really blame them for giving her the idiot edit. BTW, she's not bad-looking but makes herself look so much older and the hair and wide eyes make her look like she's getting electrocuted.

    I hated Clay's hair when he left to do The Apprentice as it seemed like he colored it himself (and too dark) and his dogs styled it as well as ate parts of it, but it doesn't look as bad on TV. Then again, if you're on a show with Donald Trump and Victoria Gotti, your hair will always look better. BTW, thanks The Apprentice show for making Clay use Twitter!

    Speaking of Gotti, what happened to her? She looks like a crypt keeper. She probably was late because it takes hours and hours to attach that huge mass of fake-looking hair.

    I kind of like Lisa outside the show, but her act can get tiresome after a while. I mean, there's just so many times you can put the C-word in a sentence. I hope she's not a Kathy Griffin type, can't stand the cliche - an ugly girl/guy goes out of their way to insult others which is a way of preservation for them; a defense by offense shield they're trying to hide behind because inside they're the most insecure people ever. But Lisa seems pretty smart and can be witty and hilarious. "Victoria Gotti is lazier than Paris Hilton's left eye. Besides, if I wanna work with an Italian imbecile, I'll join the cast of Jersey Shore." Even a friend of mine who loves Jersey Shore laughed at that. But most importantly, Lisa seems to be able to laugh about herself. Thankfully she doesn't have to be "on" all the time, as the first episode showed. BTW, she thought Aubrey was very smart and had a great voice... Oy.

    Donald seems to have loosened up up as the years went by. He almost laughed at times trying to be "stern". His children have taken on the role, though. Their "I'll try to speak as a very important person" voice modulations made me laugh.

    Sad that the women lost because I like Patricia, am a fan of her role in the Mummy as Anuk Su Namun. On the women's team I will be rooting for her, Tia, and Dayana (LOVED her as Miss Universe).

    On the men's team I am definitely cheering for George. He defended himself really well in the boardroom yesterday. Other than that I don't really care for the men's team at the moment. Not a fan of Penn though in his previous shows but so far I think he is a very good competitor on the Apprentice.

    I felt sad for her because she did raise a lot of money and then lost it all. Also, her charity is much smaller than Make A Wish, and I think 126K would have been a lot of money for them. Here's a link, if someone would like to help her get some of the money back: The Wayuu Taya Foundation Those bags they sell look very nice.

    I've always liked Tia, too. Too bad she's started messing with her face. I wish people didn't feel the need to do that. That's why I found Patricia so refreshing. Not only was she classy, smart, articulate but she looked completely natural. Loved looking at her hair after that mess that Victoria Gotti wore on her head. She looked like Dee Snider on stage in the 80s.

    Speaking of Dee Snider, he seems like a really cool guy. I saw the Celebrity Wife Swap with him and he has a great family. Has been married to the same woman for 35 years (she's hot), they have a bunch of kids who are artistic and colorful, but well-behaved and well-adjusted.

    Not a fan of Penn though in his previous shows but so far I think he is a very good competitor on the Apprentice.
    I think Penn was more of a leader in the first challenge than Paul. And he was good at it, too. There's nothing that endears me to Paul. Big muscles, short temper and emotionally stunted. Completely oblivious to how his behavior affects others.

    Lou, on the other hand, seems sweet. I found his face strangely attractive (great haircut, too).

    Here's a video of Clay and Lisa talking about the show and fellow contestants: Up Close with Clay Aiken & Lisa Lampanelli

    pretty much the only thing I've heard about this season is

    Spoiler



    Agree about Tia's face She used to be so beautiful.

    Also that george defended himself very well in the boardroom. I hope he does very well on the season.

    I kinda liked Victoria Gotti in the boardroom too, even though her hair is a frightshow.
