Celebrity Apprentice


Bret Michaels, Cyndi Lauper, Sharon Osbourne, Rod Blagojevich and The Donald…this season of Celebrity Apprentice is obviously all about the hair!

The season opened with a food task, always a popular (and often messy) option. The cast had to open a diner. The men seemed to have the advantage because Curtis Stone (hot!) is a celebrity chef. But for a minute it seemed like the men shot themselves in the foot by having a menu with nothing under $100. (Truffle Risotto anyone?) But if we have learned anything in the history of The Apprentice, the higher price points often pay off.

The women, on the other hand, had a line out the door and according to Joan Rivers (on a secret mission for The Donald) better and hotter food then the men. Even with Joan on their side, the women lost to the men who ended up practically doubling the women’s profit. Because it’s too early in the show for enemies or built up animosity and no one was thrown under The Apprentice Bus, The Donald had to make the first cut. Carol Leifer was fired because she was, quite honestly, the most boring and probably the most unrecognizable. Although people “in the know” know she was the inspiration for the character of Elaine on Seinfeld. I bet if more people knew this, The Donald wouldn’t have been so quick to say, “You’re FIRED!”
