Tonight’s episode of All-Star Celebrity Apprentice was all about Trump — Melania Trump, that is. The celebrities were tasked with coming up with a display and presentation for Melania Caviar Complexe C6, the awkwardly-titled skin care line run by the Donald’s wife. And when all was said and done, another famous face was fired. My full recap will be up at 2am, [UPDATE: Dalton’s recap is now live] but if you can’t wait to find out or sound off about who was fired, then read on for more. [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Sunday’s episode of All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.]
Perhaps it was not the biggest shock in the world that Dennis Rodman was fired on tonight’s All-Star Celebrity Apprentice, seeing as how the five-time NBA champion did invite himself into Donald Trump’s wife’s bathroom. He also is Dennis Rodman, and not really suited to tasks that involve…you know, getting stuff done. But perhaps the most shocking thing of all was the fact that Dennis asking to hang out in Melania’s bathroom was not the most inappropriate comment relating to Mrs. Trump. That honor would have to go to — who else? — Gary Busey, who informed us that, “Melania is Mrs. Trump. Her beauty lives 5,000 miles past Heaven. Have you ever had your genitalia so excited that it spins like a ferris wheel in a carnival ride? That’s how beautiful she is.” [Note to self: Never get on a ferris wheel again.]
In the end, Dennis was fired not because of the bathroom request, but rather for the fact that the team he was Project Managing somehow managed to misspell Melania’s name as “Milania” on its advertorial display. WHOOPS! After repeatedly telling Dennis how incredible he was (without any actual evidence of that incredibleness), the Donald fired Rodman, and then once again proceeded to tell his children still sitting in the Boardroom with him how incredible Dennis was. Ivanka quickly agreed, while Eric — still smarting after being compared to 10 pounds of hamburger meat by Penn Jillette — stayed silent.
My full recap will be up soon, but you can sound off right here and right now. Did Dennis deserve to go, or should it have been grumpy Trace, who was in charge of the advertorial display with the misspelling? And would you let Dennis Rodman into your bathroom?
