'Celebrity Apprentice': He Who Wants It Most Wins

So it's Piers Morgan, tabloid maniac and desperate I-need-to-win Brit, vs. Trace Adkins, self-styled saint who is way too above-board to use any kind of mean tactics. Who would win Celebrity Apprentice? Does anyone really have to ask? Especially anyone who watches more than the first 53-odd minutes of the...

'Celebrity Apprentice': Backstreet Idiots, Part 1

Let's fast-forward to the end, because this must be said: Could the (sad, over, done, totally overdone) Backstreet Boys be any more creepy? Or obnoxious? Or just downright ridiculous? Really. They get a chance to do prime-time network TV -- even if Trump's ratings are pitiful -- and they promote...

'Celebrity Apprentice': Time for the Final Four

Piers opens this week's episode with a whole lot of gloating over the demise of Omarosa, to the point that it really annoys his fellow contestants, particularly Trace. But on to the new task: Sandwich time! Don't they have a challenge like this pretty much every season? Then again, in...

'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...

'Celebrity Apprentice': The Half-Naked Edition

What's hotter: Trace Adkins shirtless, with two 20-something male models in low-slung blue jeans in the background, their backs to the camera? Or Carol Alt looking naked under the sheets, with a much younger man crawling up behind her and playfully biting her shoulder? Can't answer that one, at least...

'Celebrity Apprentice': Marilu Leaves No Alt-ernative

After being sent to their separate corners, Piers and Omarosa were pretty much a non-issue this week. Which should be a huge relief, given how grotesque their non-relationship became. But then it just got boring. So boring that Lennox Lewis basically slept through half the episode, which put him closer...

'Celebrity Apprentice': Omarosa Goes Lower Than Low

Oh my, my. Clearly thinking there's not been enough animosity already this season, Trump started out by realigning both teams (though the poor women needed it, given that they've lost 5 out of 6) into mixed-gender combinations. Which of course meant putting Omarosa and Piers on the same team, the...

'Apprentice': Something Borrowed, Someone Blue . . .

So returning to where we last left off, with the commercial tease of Stephen Baldwin quitting . . . Trump wouldn't let him quit. Instead, he let him go be on the women's team, which is apparently the alternate version of quitting (see: Gene Simmons). But Stephen decided not to...

'Celebrity Apprentice': Spygate and the Rat

First, let's go to the highlights: ** Omarosa has a heart. Maybe. ** A supermodel trumps a boxer when it comes to discarding stinky, used shoes. ** Stephen Baldwin is an idiot. ** Trace Adkins has cornered the market on that whole strong-and-silent thing. ** Vinny Pastore canNOT carry a...

'Celebrity Apprentice': The Post-'Gene Simmons Kiss-Off' Version

Wish I had a quote of the week or even an Omarosa moment of the week, but just didn't happen. Sigh. What was The Donald thinking when Gene Simmons was let go? Vinnie took over the men's team, providing a moment of hope that there would be hilarious, smart-mouth comments....

'Celebrity Apprentice': And Let Us All Now Mourn Gene Simmons

It's clear that Trump didn't want to do it. He all but begged Gene Simmons to put Nely on the chopping block, so he could have an excuse to preserve the single most interesting part of his new season as early as Week 3. Alas, Simmons refused. He refused and...

'Celebrity Apprentice': Second Date Disappointment

Oh, the first kiss was so great. Maybe because of Gene Simmons, but we won't go there. But the Celeb Apprentice went so pedestrian tonight. First of all, the Rolodex problem is apparently solved by the idea of needing to do an insta-commercial with no time to recruit outside fabulousness....

'Celebrity Apprentice': a.k.a., Who Has the Fattest Rolodex?

Let's start out by admitting, right up front, that when The Donald intoned the following ridiculousness at the start of last night's first episode of "Celeb Apprentice" -- "featuring 14 of the world's most famous celebrities! -- I was thinking: a) what world? Kathy Griffin's D-List? and; b) this is...
