Last week: two terrible OnStar promo videos later, Star Jones was fired. There are now only four Celebrities still in the game; Meat Loaf, Lil Jon, John Rich and Marlee Matlin.

We return to the lounge, where Lil Jon and John Rich are awaiting Trump’s decision. They know that Meat Loaf will give as good as he gets, but worry that Star will triumph again. They are ecstatic to see Meat. But Marlee, the other survivor, is teary and upset. She’s lost her team mate, and the win for her charity. Meat Loaf tries to cheer her up, but she clearly would have preferred Star to remain.

This week: Continuing from the end of last week’s BoardRoom, we see Lil Jon and John Rich relaxing with LaToya and Marlee Matlin. The men are delighted to have LaToya on their team, but Marlee interviews that she doesn’t think it’s fair that LaToya not only was allowed to come back, but was assigned to work with the men.

Minus castoff LaToya Jackson, Team ASAP is down to 4 ladies; Nene Leakes, Star Jones, Marlee Matlin, and Hope Dworaczyk. The men, Team BackBone, have 3 members; John Rich, Meat Loaf and Lil Jon.

We join John Rich as he visits a patient from St. Jude’s Hospital. He presents a check for $649,900. That’s a chunk of change that the families of the littlest patients can really use.

Keeping a team member in play when no one else wants to work with them will damage your overall energy. At Team Backbone this week, John Rich, Lil John, and Meat Loaf were working against a total, soul-sucking, energy hole. The fact that they could even raise their heads enough to try to bring the challenge in was a tribute to each of their commitments to their charities.

Continuing from last week’s firing of Mark McGrath, Backbone was visibly stunned to see Gary Busey walk through the door. Meat Loaf and Lil Jon were clearly unhappy, while John Rich went to a safe place in his mind, decid...

This week: Pirates me Maties! Hope doesn’t show her biggest assets, and paranoia runs deep for LaToya. Oh yeah, and Busey’s STILL here.

Week 5 and I am now having recurring nightmares of Donald Trump’s weird lip movements. Last week, the teams made ‘art’, and sold it for record amounts. Meat Loaf spectacularly lost his temper on Gary Busey for no real reason, and Richard Hatch got the boot, despite the entire team wanting Busey gone. We can only go up from here, right?

Five celebrities now remain per team. LaToya Jackson, realizing that her team think her ineffective and weak, is determin...

Week Three of The Celebrity Apprentice brings with it the big question that audiences are flooding the Internet to ask: will the Donald continue to encourage and reward the bullies of the teams? Weeks One and Two quite clearly showed that Richard Hatch, Star Jones, and even dowager Dionne Warwick, are using the series to pump up their own sadly deflated careers, instead of putting the charities, for which they are nominally playing, to the forefront.

But this week, Richard, Star and Dionne flew way under the radar. The challenge: create an outdoor camping experience – “Camping in the 21st ...

'Celebrity Apprentice' Recap: The Women's Alliance Falters (Duh)

Plato's "Allegory of the Cave" challenges what we define as reality. To a man chained in a dark cave for all of his life, reality is darkness - it is not until he is freed that his perception of reality is changed. Now, imagine that instead of darkness, this prisoner was forced to watch women on reality TV.

Okay, so maybe I'm reaching, but the fact remains that women in reality television are generally presented as backstabbers that cannot get along. These women also jump at the chance to switch over to the men's team, if the opportunity presents itself. "Finally, I don't have to deal with...

Stuff it in those high-tops until the banks are safe again. No more shopping sprees. No more Hummers. No more Cristal. Back to basics, folks. You are not immune. Your record...
