'All-Star Celebrity Apprentice': And Your Little Mechanical Dog Too!

April 29th, 2013 3:16pm EDT
All-Star Celebrity Apprentice
Last week, Gary Busey got on Lisa Rinna’s last nerve, with his inability to focus or be a part of their tiny team. But Penn Jillette still managed to pull off a successful task, winning for Plan B. Team Power’s Brande Roderick took the fall for the loss, and was fired.

After last week’s Board Room, Lil Jon is the last original member of Power, and he feels like the proverbial “black guy in a horror movie.” With only six players remaining, Plan B is still not playing on a level field; Gary is their weakest link.

'Survivor: Caramoan' – Malcolm Ousted From The Game

April 25th, 2013 1:39pm EDT
Survivor: Caramoan - Fans vs. Favorites
Last week on, Survivor: Stealth R Us wanted Eddie, Reynold and Malcolm out of the game. But Malcolm had a daring plan, and Phillip, so sure he was safe, found himself voted off the Island. The Three Amigos won that round, but will they continue their winning streak?

Malcolm says, “With the execution of The Specialist Phillip Sheppard, hopefully Stealth R Us will fracture.” Cochran just hopes that he never hears the phrase, “Stealth R Us” again. And Erik tells us that Phillips departure has rocked the stability of the game, but left him personally in a great spot.

'All-Star Celebrity Apprentice': Playmate Brande Roderick Goes Bust

April 22nd, 2013 4:03pm EDT
All-Star Celebrity Apprentice
Last week, the teams were tasked with making a silent movie promoting Australian Gold. Gary Busey headed up Plan B, but team mate Stephen Baldwin took charge. Marilu Henner was switched to team Power, and helped them win the challenge. Trump fired Stephen, for failing to showcase the client’s many products.

In the Celebration Suite, team Power toasted their success, and waited to find out if Gary had survived yet another Board Room. The consensus seemed to be that Gary, although creative and funny, was past his ‘best before’ date on the show, since his creativity outweighed his ability to ...

'Survivor: Caramoan': Malcolm Hits The Specialist Out Of Park During Craziest Tribal Council Ever

April 18th, 2013 2:08pm EDT
Survivor: Caramoan
Could it be? Could it really be? And would Phillip stamp his foot like Rumpelstiltskin? "The devil has told you that! The devil has told you that," cried the little man, and in his anger he plunged his right foot so deep into the earth that his whole leg went in, and then in rage he pulled at his left leg so hard with both hands that he tore himself in two.” (Brothers Grimm)

But I’m getting ahead of myself ….

Last time on, Survivor: Dawn still couldn’t stop crying at every twist and turn of the game. Andrea played both sides against the middle, with her flirtation with fireman Eddie. Phil...

'All-Star Celebrity Apprentice': Stephen Is No Alec Baldwin

Stephen Is No Alec Baldwin
Last week, the celebrities vied to create the best advertorial possible for Melania Trump’s new line of skin care. Team Power’s presentation contained a fatal error – the misspelling of Melania’s name. So Plan B’s Penn Jillette took the win, and the $40K for his charity, Opportunity Village, while Dennis Rodman brought back Trace Adkins to the Board Room. In the end, the responsibility fell on project manager Dennis’ shoulders, and he was fired.

In the Victory Suite, the celebs argue over who should take the blame. Misspelling Melania’s name was the offense, which Dennis signed off on, but...

'Survivor: Caramoan' – Dawn's Best Laid Plans Backfire And Michael Pays The Price

April 12th, 2013 8:55am EDT
Last time on, Survivor: The tribes merged, and Malcolm and Corinne seemed set to take control of the game. Cochran swept the competition to win the food challenge and immunity. And Corinne was blindsided at Tribal Council.

Things seem relatively peaceful at the new shared camp on Day 23. Reynold, who has a hidden immunity idol, feels confident in his alliance within an alliance with Malcolm and Eddie. Malcolm is still feeling safe as well, with his own idol, and the Fan boys on his side, though he misses ally Corinne.

My goodness! Phillip chats up Sherri. “I remember the first time I saw ...

'All-Star Celebrity Apprentice' Recap: He Who Misspells Melania Gets Fired

All-Star Celebrity Apprentice
Last week, Lisa Rinna took Plan B to the win, despite team Power’s best efforts, and won over $400 K for her charity, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Lil Jon brought back Dennis Rodman and Omarosa to the Board Room, and Omarosa was finally fired from the competition.

None of the celebrities were sorry to see her go. They were all relieved and joyous. Brande Roderick is especially pleased, as she felt that Omarosa brought the team down in every challenge. “The bad seed is gone, so now we can blossom.”

This week, the celebs are summoned to Trump Tower, where the Donald introduces them to cu...

'Survivor: Caramoan' Recap: Yum! Balut With A Side Of Shipworm!

Survivor: Caramoan
Previously on, Survivor: Phillip claimed to have thrown the Immunity Challenge, in order to take out Fan Julia. Corinne’s bonding with Michael angered Phillip, causing him to reconsider his vote. The rest of the tribe, however, agreed with Corinne, and Julia was voted off the Island.

Back at Bikal, Michael was relieved to still be in the tribe. Phillip pulled Corinne and Dawn aside to ‘confess’ that he threw the challenge. He said the idea had come to him in the middle of the game, and so he hadn’t warned them in advance. Corinne did not believe him for a minute. Even Dawn is surprised tha...

'All-Star Celebrity Apprentice': You Can Come Out Now, Omarosa's Gone!

April 1st, 2013 2:41pm EDT
All-Star Celebrity Apprentice
Gonna spoil this one right off the top, because I’m absolutely delighted that this is the last week I have to talk about Oma – the witch is dead! Couldn’t believe it myself. Perhaps the networks are beginning to understand that loud, cruel, desperate wanna-be celebs are no longer in fashion.

Last week, Omarosa targeted Claudia Jordan, bullied her into taking on the role of project manager, and effectively sabotaged Claudia’s game by under participating.  But Claudia, afraid that Trump would play favorites and keep Omarosa in the game, wound up being the fired celebrity.

In the suite, Omar...

'Survivor: Caramoan' Ep. 7: Vanilla Julia, We Hardly Knew Ya

Jeff Probst extinguishes Julia Landauer's torch
Previously on, Survivor: The tribes were shuffled, but the Favorites still outnumbered the Fans. Gota wound up the weaker tribe, with most of the younger, fitter players now on Bikal. Gota romped all over Bikal at the Immunity Challenge, and at Tribal Council, Matt was voted out of the tribe.

Michael was devastated that his ally was gone, but decided he’d make himself indispensible to his new tribe. Corinne was already on his side, and determined that she’d be his protector. Phillip was very suspicious of the closeness between Michael and Corinne. He told Cochran that he wanted Corinne gon...
