Joan & Melissa Rivers Storm Off ‘Celebrity Apprentice’

April 27th, 2009 // 103 Comments

Because Joan and Melissa Rivers are no longer capable of expressing human emotion on their faces, they have to really get over-the-top to get their point across.

After she was fired by Donalt Trump from Celebrity Apprentice, Melissa erupted in an emotional tirade before she and her mother both packed up their fur coats and left.

I didn’t realize Joan had such a distaste for poker players. Meanwhile, Jesse James was smart to stay out of their way, lest a stray Botox needle get thrown in his face.

    Let’s face it, Trump was not going to fire Brande. He’s been trying to pick her up since Day 1. Remember, he said at the very beginning that he tried to pick her up once a long time ago. As for Melissa and Joan, the did act immature. After all, it is a game. Don’t expect to sit back and win just because of your name. As for Annie…hmmmmm, she’s two faced that’s for sure! She thinks she has the game won. Maybe she does, but I think she has lost alot of respect from the viewers. Besides, after you win the title, who actually remembers?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    If Melissa had kept her mouth shut and stayedin control she would probably have survived. She made the mistake of cutting off trump and taking a negative tone when Brandi took a positive self confident and passionate stance. But lets face it, Melissa was lucky to survive this long. And really….her mother had to walk off and follow her? I understand family loyalty, but Melissa is an adult and this is a show raising money for charity not an actual job. It’s also TEMPORARY.

    As for Annie….she’s awesome. She playing to win and she’s doing a damn good job of it. Joan Rivers’ attacks against her are totally inappropriate and unprofessional. Some of the things that she has said are deeply offensive and should never have been said regardless of her personal feelings toward Annie. At least Annie’s actions haven’t seemed to be outright malicious like Joan’s.

    WOW….I must admit I couldn’t wait for Sundays show to come on.

    Joan Rivers is a tired , pitiful excuse for a comedian. Her comments regarding hitler, whores, white trash, etc. were really shameless and revealed her true character. No apologizing necessary. You said what you meant to say. You are what you are. You are a JOKE. You remind me of the movie “V”. Keep your mask on, we know whats underneath.

    Melissa is not much different and that is ashame. I don’t think she likes her mother, but can’t separate from the cord. She is spiteful and lashed out at the poor ole set workers as she left. She may have done better had her old lady not been on the show. Guess we will never know. Next time, if there is one, show some class and go out with your head held high. Not like your nasty mother.

    As for the remaining celebrities, they all deserve to still be there. My guess is that it will go down between Jesse and Annie, both of which have game.

  4. JJ RULES

    I says every one had issue last night except for Ivanka. I think Jesse could win this, but he was being a bit baby-ish last night. Clint is always a baby, even tho he was better last noght , jesse’s idea’s wouold have been way better, but Jesse should have been the PL since this was his expertise. Joan needs to let her daughter grow and stop coddling her when she doesn’t get her way. Melissa was throwm under the bus unfairly (mostly Annie’s doing by using Brandi) but Melissa should have been more pro about it. Annie is not the next hitler, but she does give Castro & Stalin a run for their money (pun intended)when it comes to manipulation and deciet.. Brandi can be very smart, but she seems to be lazy when a task is more challenging than usual, she should have not accepted the PL assignment if she wasn’t going to do any of the work. And sinec they lost she should have thrown Annie under the bus, because it was all Annie’s fault they failed or she should have been fired because she could have used Melissa more and done better, maybe even win. Trump was supposed to be inpartial and focus on the task at hand. The task was not about raisnig money, it was about the specific challenge, but he wanted Brandi & Annie to stay because they will bring in alot of money for “charity” & NBC. That other guy was a joke and not even needed. Where’s Don JR when we need him?!

  5. the Don Father

    Just my opinion but I did not care for Joan Rivers making comments about Annie Duke being similar to a historical figure that is sensitive to the Jewish community. Though and yes both Joan and Melissa are Jews – they should not take their roles; who they are; and what they are involved with relevant to major media and just casually or aggressively accuse another person of being ‘Hitler’ – that is just ridiculous; asinine and I just lost respect for any person who goes around spitting and attacking another because of personal differences.

    I think it’s best that the mother daughter pair have left – Joan quitting shows just how much of a hypocrite she is as she attacked Clint Black then changed her mood and then told Jessie James “Support Your Team” and then splits when her daughter is fired. PATHETIC.

    I think the “Rivers” family should find some manners and take the next decade to reposition their attitudes — and probably careers after their stunt they pulled on the last episode. Good T.V. but only took away their celebrity from them.

  6. Bobo

    Those of you who think that Annie should be fired obviously haven’t spent even a second in the hard-core business world. Sissies like you wouldn’t last an hour.

    Clint knows how to play the game. Again, the weaklings don’t get that.

    Jesse is a nice guy, but he’s too nice. The only reason he’s a “celebrity” is pure luck.

    Joan & Melissa are freaks, and only another freak would defend them.

  7. Renny

    HAHAHA She is a talentless leach! I laughed my ### off when she got fired. Now she and her scary mommy will have to find some other venture for has beens. Hey, how about farming with all the other horses in the world!

  8. Nancy

    Melissa and Joan Rivers behavior throughout the show and especially upon their departure was inexcusable and embarrassing for them. They are both an embarassment to female executives and women in general. Regardless of whether you feel the firing was correct, the fact of the matter is it was just business and not everything is fair in business. Also, this is an entertainment show and its to raise money for charity! There is no place for name calling and hurt feelings in the corporate world or on an entertainment show! Melissa was fired by her superior (host of the show), whether deservedly or not, and she reacted like an overly emotional child!

    I have somewhat enjoyed Joan Rivers in the past and her supposedly ability to laugh at herself. I have always found Melissa to hang on her mother’s coat tails. After seeing their absolutely rude, self-serving behavior throughout this show, I no longer have an interest in seeing them in anything. And when Joan passes so shall Melissa’s “career”!

  9. Marlayne Larson

    Celebrity Apprentice is fun to watch. I saw a one season show with Melissa coming in 2nd and she was great. I think “Mama” makes her weaker. I would never talk for my daughters. They have always had to work hard and take the knocks as they come. It makes them better people and more successful. I would never quit the show either because my daughter was fired. I think Joan and her daughter have a very dependent relationship. Probably because she had her daughter later than most do, only one child, and she worked all the time. Lots of guilt so she over reacts to compensate for the lack of time she spent with her when she was young child.

  10. Brenda

    I feel that Melissa and Joan should not have been on the same show togeather. They constantly interseeded for one another. Their behavior was unexcuseable, and not representative of their charities. I will not watch the two on the red carpet again.

  12. Show Fan

    I find it ironic that Joan and Melissa Rivers are in charge of anything to do with television after that display on Celebrity Apprentice. I wouldn’t want to be associated with them if I were any network at this point. I think it is interesting that some celebrities can make comments that seriously under mind their career – like Kramer and Mel Gibson and no one has really called them on the carpet for their foul mouthed ridiculous behavior. They want everyone to be respectful of them but they have none for anyone else. I think the networks should just shut them out. Let them sell jewelry to their 50+ year old customers and call it a day.

    If I ever was in a situation where I had a choice as to whom I would like a blow job from, I would take Annie Dukes hands down over Joan and Melissa. Joan can’t even move her face muscles, and Melissa would need her mother’s guidance and approval. I like Annie Dukes, she’s a self-made person unlike Melissa Rivers whose only claim to fame is being Joan River’s daughter. I would like the final to be between Jesse James and Annie Dukes.

    I have never been so embarrassed for 2 celebrities as I was after watching that episode. Those women acted certifiably crazy. Do I think that Annie plays with an underhanded agenda — yes, but really…. the reaction from those two women was ridiculous. Melissa might be the most irritating, obnoxious person ever to grace that show. And does Joan Rivers think the goal of every contestant is to protect her daughter? No ma’am, it is to win money for charity. The venom spewing team humiliated themselves to the point I lost all respect for them, and I actually kinda liked Joan when the show started. Have a little dignity, self-respect and grace ladies.

  19. N/A

    First, why the hell is Duke considered a top poker player? She isn’t even listed in the Top 100 poker players in the world. Does she even make the Top 150?

    Second, Melissa is a good person. She has the same ability as her mother does for being able to notice when others are taking advantage of her or are back stabbing her.

    Third, that blonde bimbo is white trash. Joan Rivers worked her way up in the world by working hard, very hard. She has earned the right to call people “white trash” when they make a name for themself by taking of their shirt to let the world see their boobs.

    Fourth, I think Trump is starting to lose it. It seems like he is trying to make money at all costs.

    I think Trump kicked Melissa off the show because his ego took a hit when he got cut off…..oh that poor man.

    His daughter got to the point she is at because she works for her dad.

  20. westcan

    Joan and Melissa really should be ashamed of themselves….but they won’t be and they’ll argue it forever. Then again, who really cares? Joan can go back to selling jewelry and her daughter can go back to hanging onto her mom’s coat tails. Maybe she should try pouring coffee at a dunkin donuts because without her mom, that’s where she would be anyways.

    For you Annie Duke fans who like to bring up her WSOP bracelets and how much she has won. Do you realize how many bracelets are given away every year? The real bragging rights are for 10k no-limit hold em. When she wins that, I’ll be impressed. Winning 3 million in poker as a professional is not a big deal. Most of those pro’s have won that, more than that and lost it as well. Read enough articles and interviews and you’ll see how many have gone broke. If you all really want to know what Annie Duke is like, check out the posts in alt.rec.gambling pertaining to players who have played with her. You’ll see she isn’t so much different than that crybaby Melissa.
    The dumb blonde with the great body should have been fired but it’s very obvious from Sunday night’s show that the show and the “Game” is predetermined. The more I listen and see of Trump, the more clear it is that the guy has no class. He’s gone broke before…and he will again.

  21. Joansbetch

    Team Joan and Melissa here.

    Wit is always greater and more entertaining than trashy game-playing.

  22. Kyle Anderson

    I am absolutely thrilled to see the Rivers’ leave the show. Melissa is just a dumb who is trying to make a careers with Mommy’s push and do not even get me started with Joan.

  23. elaine

    First of all, I agree with N/A, who stated “I think Trump kicked Melissa off the show because his ego took a hit when he got cut off…” I think The Donald was all set to fire Brandi (sic) until he was cut off by Melissa (in fact, the Donald did not give Melissa a chance to finish what she had to say, and at that point Melissa was so angry with the whole situation, that I don’t think she even realized that she “rudely” interrupted him. I agree that Joan should let Melissa “fight” her own battles, but Joan realized that Annie and Brandi did throw Melissa under the bus. If you really watch the scenes carefully, you will realize that Melissa was in fact ignored and was purposely set up to take the fall if her team lost. I also feel that Melissa should not have used the language that she did and would hope that once she cooled down, that she apologized to the people that had nothing to do with her being “fired”. (I think we saw in this scene that some of us at one time wished we had said how we really felt, but knew enough not to say it.) I really would like to know what was on the note that the Donald passed to the man on his right (I do not know his name, but I wasn’t exactly impressed with him either.)

  24. N8

    Annie is playing a game and doing it perfect. She is playing everyone just like they should be to win the game which she does for a living. I’m pretty sure it will be Annie and Jessie in the finale. And as for Joan, Melissa and Clint…I will never watch them or listen to them ever again for the rest of my life. They are dispicable!

  25. haha...

    Horrible decision by Donald Trump. Brande failed to deliver what a REAL project manager would do if this was real life. She failed to consider not only the technical skills of each person, but also the critical roles and chemistry between team members. Without a doubt I knew they were going to lose just horrible teamwork. Brande failed to include Melissa in the team by not listening and discussing the ideas being discussed by each team member. Either she set up Melissa for failure or she is just dumb playboy bunny (I’m going for the dumb part, she seemed confused). I guess if it doesn’t involve sex it doesn’t make sense. She failed to deliver what a TRUE project manager would do, which is be open for communications and ensure that project participants can voice their opinions and concerns. Something anyone with some good common sense would’ve noticed that she didn’t, that didn’t seemed like a team. It seemed like a team of Annie and Brande. All Brande did was agree with Annie, not question or debate anything about it and ignore Melissa’s ideas. Melissa was really put in a tough position I can see why she was so angry because in real life Brande would’ve been fired for failing to deliver adequate leadership abilities and ability to manage a team. Obliviously, this show is not about skills but about who can raise the most money (get the most ratings), which obviously no doubt the airhead playboy star will deliver and the egotistical, self centered poker lady will do so too, otherwise her friends will have to deal with her bitchy self.

    In regards to Donald Trump’s views. He is a clueless as to what it takes to be a real project manager, he fails to understand the concept of what a real project manager should be and how much responsibility they have, lost a lot of respect on Donald Trump, not that I had much to start with. Must be the toupee that he is wearing that is too tight causing him to lose focus and not think logically. I guess all he could see is RATINGs… RATINGs… RATINGs…

  26. haha...

    Lastly, poker players are white trash that was hilarious. It’s funny how Annie plays the victim when she is a bad seed. The River ladies are no saint but the Duke (which why is she still using her ex-husband’s last name?), so much independence. That woman has issues is Annie is the best… Annie that… hilarious. And yet people still support her egotistical bitchy self.

  27. cholly vassolene

    Annie is the only real woman there. The best combo of brains and beauty among all of the woman. She’d make it to CEO in the corporate world. I’m rooting for her to win. I hope Joan Rivers stays away, she juped the shark (or it jumped her) 20 years ago. I can’t think of one talent Melissa has other than being Joan’s daughter. Her meltdown was a classic example of what many celebrities truly are – whiny bastards who can’t take being told no and then explode at all the innocent people around them.Go Annie!

  28. Apprentice Fan

    Isn’t it ironic that the Rivers’ fans are much like Joan’s daughter… riding on her coattail. The comments that have spewed from Joan’s mouth since the season’s show began are obscene, yet those who support her call everyone else bitchy.

    haha… says… Are you really serious??? Annie Duke has 4 kids by her ex-husband… why would she still not use his last name. Most divorced women that I know, including myself, do not change their name when they divorce, especially when there are kids involved. An even smarter question would be… “why is Melissa Rivers using her mother’s name instead of her fathers?” Guess Melissa Rosenberg wouldn’t have gotten her very far. JEEZ!

    Annie is playing the game to win. If that includes throwing people under the bus, well, that is part of the game. It isn’t a life or death situation; it doesn’t have anything to do with their survival; it does, however, show a lot of personality. Annie has played every game to win whether it is for her charity or for someone else’s charity. I don’t see that with Joan or Melissa.

    Hope Annie wins

  29. Brenda

    I think Melissa and Joan both deserved to go. They both act like little kids when they don’t get their way. Good for you Annie, I think you are playing the game. After all that is what you are there for. I don’t like Clint. He has no personality. Love Jesse.

  30. rcan

    I agree with all that the apprentice fan has written above… read it:)

  31. Observer

    Lets call a spade a spade. As outrageous as Joan is, her daughter did not deserve to be fired last night. Joan sees Annie and Brande for what they really are. Like Brande is really smart? Please Annie will eat her for dinner. Melissa is right that Annie knows she has a better chance of going up against Brande than Melissa. Annie is 2 faced. It appears that Donald got his feelinsg hurt when Melissa wanted to finish her answer that he asked her. Nothing wrong with that. Brande was weak as project manager and Annie was pretty much in control of the project ideas. They lost. His side kick Jim Kramer from CNBC even voted for Brande with out doubt initially. Then changed his tune like a canary after Donald slipped him a note like a 5th grader. From one hypocrite to another. Jim Kramer showed how flakey he is and shouldn’t be a judge. Donald has made some bad decisions that have blindsided both Khloe and Melissa. Brande brags about how much money she can raise, so basically they should change the name of the show to Celebity Fund Raiser Apprentice, cause obviously ones skills and business talent doesn’t matter.

  32. TKS

    Now we know why Edgar killed himself.

  33. ranchokirk

    I THINK THIS WAS ALL SCRIPTED. IF YOU LOOK BACK JOAN RIVERS WAS STANDING STILL FOR THE SHOT WHEN ANNIE AND BRANDE WALKED BACK IN THE ROOM. ITS ALL SCRIPTED BUT WOW, IT WAS AWESOMELY DONE!!!!!!!!!

  34. LLR

    I love Melissa and really was rooting for her to win. I agree Donald has made some bad decisions, and as angry as Joan was and as hard as it was for her to separate herself from her emotions where her daughter was concerned I have to say her standing up to Annie and storming off when she did was (at least to me) admirable. She has a ton of class and Melissa is lucky to have a mom who demonstrates that kind of fierce loyalty.

  35. Watching Every Sunday

    I thought it was funny to watch the meltdown at the end. Joan Rivers said “poker player” as if “comedienne” is any better. I mean, for starters they both play in casinos and have to compete mostly w/men. Personally I think they both require the same amount of brains…comediens & poker players both have to be quick on their feet. If anything, Joan should have some respect for Annie since she obviously inhabits the same places.

    As for Melissa, for a grown woman, she sure it attached at the hip to her mommy. Grow up woman!!! And my goodness, don’t their faces hurt from stretching so far? just wondering….

  36. The Duke

    Melissa did a great job with directing and taking charge on some of the tasks. But she’s not a good leader at all. And she’s not a good follower either. She should have been fired weeks ago. Her embarrassing and childish antics at the end of the show reminded me of a famous quote:

    Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned!

    That woman needs some deep therapy. How hysterical! Annie and Brande, check your tires!!!!

    I think Annie has played the game brilliantly (just like Piers did last year)! She is manipulative and conniving, but she has not lied or leveled any personal attacks on her competitors in the boardroom (despite being called arrogant, egotistical, Hitler, etc). She’s got brains. And although anything can happen in the boardroom, I’d be surprised if she doesn’t win the whole thing.

  37. RRtea

    Melissa shouldn’t have been fired. I don’t blame her for being so angry… she knew she was being played from the beginning. Brandi is a pitiful person bowing down to Annies whims. Annie has no ethics at all and the only one that seems to have the guts to voice that is Joan. Trump is looking for ratings and could care less about the charities. Obviously it’s not about how much work, and how well each team member does it’s about how much MONEY they can personally raise. Melissa clearly worked harder than Brandi on this last task, even though she was ostracized by her teammates. She was fired because she couldn’t raise a lot of MONEY.

  38. Pam E

    I have never seen such childish behavior on a television show! Melissa Rivers is the most foul-mouthed, spoiled rotten brat I have ever seen! Donald Trump should have known better than to put those two losers (her mother is just as bad!) on his show. Up until now I enjoyed Celebrity Apprentice but I was just disgusted at how the Rivers people (can’t call them women because that would be disparaging to the rest of us of the female persuasion!) were allowed to be so blatantly rude and insulting to other people. I think that Annie and Brandy showed great restraint and class under such a torrent of nasty language. Way to go Annie and Brandy – hope you are the final two!!

  39. MichSam

    Melissa did not belong on the show to begin with just like a few other, Celebrity is the name and a few were less than borderline Celebrities. PLUS it was 2 against the rest as the Rivers (aka Cryme a Rivers) were always playing them against the rest – not quite fair. I think Donald wanted Joan and she probably only agreed to come on if they took her daughter to try to give her some more exposure – didn’t work out so great. Joan is either crazy or just really a sad person, to use those comments about someone else and on national TV is really sad. For Melissa to allow herself to be babied by her mother through the entire show and also use her mother to defend her is really telling of that whole relationship. Goodbye and good for the show, hoped Melissa would go and Joan quit with her, really tired of listening to them and seeing those faces.

    have you seen annie’s trailer park skank tatoos, pig slut. her kids are doomed. she can’t stay married, cheated on her husband and now live with some street person looking loser. thanks mom.
    this lady is an idiot she plays a game that there is a lot of luck involved and it takes a short time to learn the odds and statistics of muti players and the rest is luck. the so called pros are just the ones from history that played the most and had reasonable intellect.
    the so called poker pros pratically never win anymore because they are unable to win against even the most rookie players. they now create shows featuring themselves as the best, but the reality is they are just average intelligent people that started before the craze. after, seeing the reasoning ability of annie on the apprentice, it is obvious that her failures to provide a stable 2 parent home for her children extents to failures to be able to accomplish simple business tasks and getting along with others. She and the others on the show do not understand the most basic methods of brainstorming and idea development and just show themselves as incompetents, just because you have a few dollars does not mean your not a loser. I hope your kids can get away from you in time. stop spending time getting “i’m a skank whore slut” tatoos and take care of your kids and stop feeding your “my daddy did not love me crap” with some loser street person boyfriend that is living off of your blowjob poker winnings. SKANK SLUT.
    sincerely Ivanka
    see my new jewelry line on my web site.

  42. mbaker

    let’s make this easy…..Annie is a white trash bitch…who in all seriousness says that she’s a great blow job on national TV (she has little children at home)if she wins I will be happy for her charity….ON THE OTHER HAND….Joan Rivers does not need to be the Celebrity Apprentice…She has proven herself time and time again is is a self made woman who in my opinion shines….hail Joan Rivers for her perseverance and stamina…..I hope that I am running around at her age and look half as good……YOU CAN DO IT JOAN!!!!

  43. Anna

    I <3 Joan, she really stands up for herself!

  44. lily

    I think Joan is ridiculous,because she didn’t play mom that good,it’s so mean to call other people Hitler,while I think a good mom tells her daughter to deal with things not to make things worse.By quiting the game is so not righter,quiter is loser,what if win for your daughter?
    I think Annie is good,she knew what she want and go for it,maybe sometimes it may seem annoy,but also mature,she handle thing good…
    Brande is definitely my favourate,beautiful and nice,ok,I like Ivanka more,because she seems wiser than Brande.I think Brande has protential to be a wise woman,and Ivanka already is..
    Like Jesse,but you really don’t know all.
    don’t like Clint,I like country
    because of Trace now I’m not sure…
    still don’t like DT,maybe I just don’t like rich man ,I only see the things they are missing ,which bothers me,but I like his daughter,I think that will explain his success somehow…

  45. JoanWhiteTRASHLUNATIC

    ANYONE who likes Joan Rivers, defends her, or wants her to win, is a low class, low IQ pile of trash just like this disgusting lunatic woman is.

    Joan Rivers is the epitome of white trash, she and her 43 yr old whining daughter who acts 12.

    Love the IDIOTS above who claim annie is this and that solely on what they hear Joan/M say about her. Ridiculous.

    Joan’s husband killed himself because of her and anyone who was around back then knows this to be true.. then her behavior after that was unbelievable..

    Joan Rivers makes a living making fun of WWII atrocities. Joan R goes on cruises and does gigs making fun of 911 victims and their families, this is how this 3rd rate celeb makes a living.. Talk about “blood on your hands”!

    Joan and M got fired from the red carpet a yr ago because they were a big whiny pain in the azz-

    The whole show is fixed. Why was J and M allowed on teh show together? Why did Joan get to come back after she quit when Tionne was fired because she offered to come to the board room? Trump made it clear he hates quitters. WHY IS JOAN STILL THERE WHEN SHE’S ACCOMPLISHED NOTHING IN THESE PROJECTS?

    WHY WASN’T JOAN FIRED WHEN SHE FAILED MISERABLY ON THE JEWELRY AUCTION?

    Joan sells jewelry on QVC and yet she sent someone else to pick the jewelry? why wasn’t she fired for this?

    Joan has brought in less… LESS money than anyone on the show.. did ya’ll know that? she’s been in the biz 40 yrs, LIVES IN NEW YORK and she raised ONLY $8,000 for the jewelry auction!!

    GIVE ME A BREAK!! THIS IS SO FIXED!!

    STILL NOT CONVINCED TRUMP PROMISED HER FINAL 2 BEFORE THIS COMPETITION EVEN BEGAN?

    HOW ABOUT THIS:

    TRUMP’S SISTER IN LAW IS ON THE BOARD OF JOAN’S CHARITY!!!

    TALK ABOUT COLLUSION AND A FIXED REALITY SHOW!

    REALITY MY AZZ!

  46. Joanhater

    I hate Joan Rivers to the core. I only hope her entire career goes down the drain and someone skins her alive just as those animals were to make those damn fur coats of hers.

    Whole show is fixed. Trump’s sister in law is on the board of Joan’s charity…

    JOan and M fired from red carpet so Joan has a new show on some little online tv channel and guess who owns the show-same guy who owns Celeb Apprentice.

    talk about unrevealed collusion- C A never divulged this info to the public.

    JOan was obviously promised final 2 before the game even started, she should have been fired sooo many times already.

    trump probably already promised her the win too.. either way, the whole show was fixed in her favor from the beginning-

    totally disgusting, no respect for trump and him handing this to joan

    The whole show was fixed and staged. Remember what Clint said at tonight’s finale – when Trump asked him who he thinks should be fired, Annie or Joan, Clint said “your (Trump’s) editor”. That tells you that a lot of stuff goes on behind the scenes that the viewers know nothing about. I took up Mass Communications and know that editors and network people can manipulate videos, cut and put them together to tell the story they want you to see. But the real REALITY is, none of those celebrities are what they seem on this show. Their flaws were all exaggerated and magnified, just to keep the show interesting. The person who should be fired is Donald Trump himself – but hey who can blame him – this show is all about getting the viewers to watch advertisements and haul money for NBC! It’s all business baby!!!

    I agree 100% with JoanWhiteTRASHLUNATIC, Jen and Joanhater. I didn’t know Trump’s sister-in-law was on the board of Joan’s charity but I do know that his favorite charities are for AIDS and Pediatric AIDS. Go figure!

    I, too, think she was promised the win before she agreed to be on the show. He most likely never saw the things that went on and relied on others to inform him of certain things. He DID, however, watch her antics and hear her spew her venom of hate in the board room. Telling someone they are worse than Hitler, plugging her ears so she wouldn’t hear Annie talk, calling people liars, walking off saying she was not coming back, then come late the next day (which was done for her grand entrance, I’m sure) then last night, she made the comment at all the money Annie brought in was Mafia money; any of those would have gotten anyone else fired.

    I cannot believe the casino’s will have her back once the current contracts are fulfilled.

    I know one thing… As much as I have always enjoyed the apprentice since the first year it was on, last night was the LAST time I will watch it. So, next year, I will find something else to watch at that time. In fact, after Biggest Loser is over this season, I really think I am not watching NBC again for allowing this kind of action yet renewing the contract for next season.

    I was disappointed Donald did not admonish Joan for her unprofessional/8 year old behavior. At minimum, an apology was in order. (Surely the American Jewish Comitte was cringing at diluting Hitler’s importance by comparing anyone to him) Perhaps she needs a med change. As an after thought, I wish Annie had mentioned that Joan’s behavior was hurting both charities, since no one seemed to think there was a problem with her tirade from a board room/business behavior perspective. I think she’s in a situation with her other “business” dealings where no one is in a position to tell her she is full of crap, so she thinks she’s a fabulous manager. Her perspective on Vegas is so dated and uninformed, that I’m surprised she makes anything in any business. Mobsters went out when the corporations took over, in what? the 70′s? Lastly, I would have liked poker to be portrayed in it’s modern form. It would do no good, because she is too far gone, but ask Joan what she thinks of professional golfers. Then remind her that there was a time when golfers were looked upon as low life, gambling scoundrels. Poker, at the casino level, is no longer some collection of cheatin, n’er do well questionable scam artists. Currently, there are a scary number of Rocket Scientists, Phd Math graduates, computer wiz’s and past chess masters to make the game difficult at the top level.
