The fact that Gary Busey has not already been fired on Celebrity Apprentice is beyond comical — which is exactly why the entire thing is so gosh darn funny. On the latest edition of the InsideTV Podcast, I explain to Jessica Shaw why I am endlessly entertained by Donald Trump’s efforts to legitimize keeping Gary around when it is clearly only due to the fact that his insanity makes for good television. The way I see it, you simply can’t embrace the absurdity of Celebrity Apprentice without appreciating the most absurd aspect of all — The Donald’s random rationale for whom gets fired. Jessica and I discuss that as well as which candidates might actually make it to the end. We also delve into the biggest Celebrity Apprentice controversy of all: Why wasn’t Playmate of the Year Hope Dworaczyk naked last week for the big suntan lotion task? (Gee, thanks a lot, La Toya!)
Also on the menu: We take a look at American Idol and whether Scotty McCreery already has the title all wrapped up. (Plus, did Jennifer Lopez cross a line by openly campaigning for contestants just because they are women?) And then we pick poor Alicia Florrick’s jaw up off the floor in the wake of her learning on The Good Wife that husband Peter slept with BFF Kalinda. Jessica shares what she would like to see happen next on the CBS drama.
