Donald Trump has taken a swipe at singer Cher, branding her "miserable" and a "loser".

The property tycoon and reality TV star condemned the music legend after she made comments about presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, branding him "racist" and "homophobic".

Illustrious Republican supporter Trump hit back shortly after she made the remarks, posting on his Twitter.com page, "Cher attached (attacked) Mitt Romney. She is an average talent who is out of touch with reality."

And he renewed his attack on Monday, telling Fox News, "You know, I understand Cher, and Cher is somewhat of a loser....

May 7th, 2012 1:28pm EDT
The Celebrity Apprentice
Last well, the celebrities were tasked with writing a jingle for Good Sam’s roadside assistance program. On Unanimous, Aubrey O’Day pushed her ideas forward, and teammates Teresa Giudice and Project Manager Arsenio Hall let her. On Team Forte, Dayana Mendoza micromanaged teammates Clay Aiken and Lisa Lampanelli to a loss, and it was Dayana’s turn, as Project Manager, to be fired.

This week on, Celebrity Apprentice: It’s the third to last episode of the series (ends May 20,) so hold on to your hats, folks. We have a task, followed by a Board Room firing, followed by an unexpected visit by t...

'Celebrity Apprentice' - Ranking The Models

Dayana Mendoza
If anything, Celebrity Apprentice has proven that models can be more than just a pretty face - in fact, many of them have strong business acumen. With Donald Trump ousting Dayana Mendoza, putting her in sixth place in a strong field, we decided to take a look at how the models of Celebrity Apprentice did over the years.

Carol Alt (3rd place in season 1) learned firsthand that Donald Trump can be fickle. After wowing interviewers (the second to last task is always an interview with trusted Trump executives), she was highly recommended to take on Trace Adkins in the final. However, Trump l...

Dayana Mendoza Takes Her Final Cat Walk
Last week on Celebrity Apprentice: The teams created a slogan and display for Trump’s new scent for men. Although Dayana Mendoza’s photo on the banner was praised, she was brought back into the Board Room for the sixth time. However, it was Penn Jillette’s losing slogan that led to his firing.

Aubrey O’Day, Teresa Giudice and Arsenio Hall are all that remain of Team Unanimous, while Clay Aiken, Lisa Lampanelli, and Dayana are the last of Team Forte. Aubrey’s overjoyed at her win for her charity GLSEN. Clay’s devastated to lose Penn, as Penn was a strong player. Dayana knows she’ll have to ...

Last week on Celebrity Apprentice, the teams were asked to create puppets, and to perform for Brian Henson’s “Stuffed and Unstrung,” a live, improv puppet show aimed at adults. As Project Manager for losing team Unanimous, Paul Teutel Sr. was sent home, while Lisa Lampanelli, PM for Forte, received a check for $20,000.00 for her charity, Gay Mens Health Crisis.

Previously, on Celebrity Apprentice: Teresa Giudice’s team Unanimous won the competition for best ‘commercial.’ It was Lou Ferrigno and his 110% effort that left, after a nasty exchange of words with Lisa Lampanelli.

Dayana Mendoza and Lisa returned to the suite after the firing. Clay Aiken took offense to Lisa’s triumphant, “We did it.” Clay wonders about Lisa’s attitude. With only three members left on Team Forte, everyone wonders if someone from Team Unanimous will be sent over to the enemy. Aubrey O’Day hopes that Clay and Arsenio Hall, who have become good friends, will be split up.

Last week’s double episode cost the teams Debbie Gibson and Dee Snider, and saw Aubrey O’Day walk out after an overwrought Board Room blowout between Aubrey and Arsenio Hall.

The drama continues this week, as we return to the Board Room aftermath. Arsenio, still shaking with anger and emotion, doesn’t know if he could handle Aubrey’s return. Lisa Lampanelli and Penn Jillette, returning from the Board Room, are shocked to hear about Aubrey as well. Lisa thinks the team should be worried – if Aubrey stays away, she feels their team has no chance.

During an extended three hour episode, I watched the Celebrity Apprentice last night. And I only fell asleep twice! Here’s what happened:

Last week: The teams put together parties to launch a new line of mock tail drinks. The men of Unanimous won the challenge with their beach party, and the women of Forte suffered the loss of Patricia Velasquez, who was fired. Aubrey cried crocodile tears, as she had hoped Dayana Mendoza would be the one to leave. Clay Aiken brought checks worth $50,000.00 to the National Inclusion project.

Last week, on Celebrity Apprentice: The teams were tasked with making a viral video. Unanimous’ male team was led by Lou Ferrigno, and the female Forte team by Tia Carrere. The men’s earlier frustration with Lou was forgotten when Clay Aiken and Arsenio Hall pointed out that Penn Jillette’s brainstorming style was not supportive of Lou’s management. Penn suddenly found himself being put forward as a possible target for firing. But the women of Forte weren’t happy either, and Tia, as Project Manager, took responsibility and sacrificed herself for her team when they lost the challenge.

Last week, on The Celebrity Apprentice, the women’s FORTE team won the challenge, and the men of UNANIMOUS got gut punched when not one, but TWO of their team were fired. Both Adam Carolla, Project Manager, and Michael Andretti hit the road when Trump decreed that Adam’s biggest failing was not showcasing Michael’s brand power in a challenge revolving around cars. Oh, and for not naming names in the boardroom, naughty Adam. But the ladies had a few tussles that may impact the solidarity of their group before too long. Patricia Velasquez interviewed that the ‘back stabbing and lies’ must sto...

'Celebrity Apprentice' Recap – 'Nice Shot, Oswald' - A Lesson Is Taught

The Celebrity Apprentice
Last week, the teams designed a ‘living window display’ for Ivanka Trump’s new fashion collection. The ladies team, FORTE, won, although the men of UNANIMOUS had a strong display and great branding ideas. George Takei took one for the team, although Lou Ferrigno was once again put forward as a weak link. The men feel that Lou presents himself as a go getter offering 110% when in the Board Room, but when actually working on a challenge, only offers ideas that center around his being the Hulk.

Dayana Mendoza had been Project Manager for FORTE, so she received the $20,000.00 donation for her...

Can the ladies of Forte pull it together, now that Victoria is gone, or will the men of Unanimous carry on their winning streak?

After the firing, Lisa Lampanelli swore she’d never Project Manage again, but she’s more determined than ever that Forte kick some Unanimous butt. Penn Jillette had the pleasure to present his team’s win of $40,000.00 to Linda Smith for his charity “Opportunity Village”.

Property tycoon-turned-reality TV star Donald Trump has blasted funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen for the ash-spilling prank he pulled at the Oscars on Sunday.

The businessman was appalled when Cohen, in character as his new film character from The Dictator, tipped what he claimed were late North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il's remains all over red carpet TV reporter Ryan Seacrest - and now he's speaking out in defense of the American Idol host, who had to change after he was left covered with powder.

The men of Unanimous rocked, and walked, leaving the ladies in their dust. Although none of the women on Team Forte seemed to like Victoria Gotti’s attitude, they, and even The Donald, were not about to get on the Mob Princess’ bad side. So they axed the quietly classy, and original Supermodel Cheryl Tiegs. Looks like the ground rules have been laid; win by any means, and don’t worry...
