'Celebrity Apprentice': The Hallelujah! Edition
This week we see what is surely one of the most joyous days of Piers Morgan's life.
He hates Omarosa. Omarosa hates him. They've driven each other way more insane in task-to-task existence than is remotely smart. And we've been waiting for the implosion.
The project this week is one that Omarosa failed big-time, and got fired over, in her original stint on "Apprentice." But this time around, she has no choice but to step up because she's project manager -- and because she's got no real track record this time around.
And the minute Piers heard Omarosa was going to honcho Empresario, he decided to head up Hydra. As Piers puts it, he wants to go "toe to toe."
Then it becames a slaughter. Let's say it again: slaughter. Humiliation, embarrassment, disaster. The math: Piers raises $164K; Omarosa raises $7K. Yes, you read that right. And Trump pretty much hammers home that point.
So it seems Omarosa has no option but to walk into the boardroom, put her head on the guillotine and let it fly. So what does she do? She decides to . . . question Piers's sexuality.
We thought Omarosa had gone as low as she could go when she dragged Piers's kids into her trash talk. But now she decides that her best option -- even though she clearly isn't going to save herself -- is to declare that Piers is in the closet. Immediate backfire: Trump gets all worked up and invites Piers back to speak on his own behalf. So Piers swaggers into the boardroom and responds to her claim by . . . kissing Trace on the cheek. Which immediately freaks out Trace and underscores that Trace's world isn't quite like ours. His voice is fabulous, he's played the game clean, but the idea of him working for Donald is pretty hilarious.
Piers, meanwhile, had everyone's fantasy moment, where he got to totally crush and humiliate his opponent and earn huge props for himself in the process. And when they played "Hallelujah!" you could almost imagine him dancing around.
Oh, and in the humorous preview category: Next week's edition is being advertised as "Omarosa Free!"
Ah, honey, hope you learned your lesson. You are a ratings pimp and your "15 minutes" may have ended this week, but they are stilling selling you to the end.
