Celebrity Apprentice Episode Seven "Top Feuds, Firings and Fails" and "Universal Wizards": Discussion Thread


TOP FEUDS, FIRINGS AND FAILS 

This special episode will feature some of the best moments in “The Apprentice” history, including the best hirings and firings, top feuds and biggest mistakes. 

UNIVERSAL WIZARDS 

Mr. Trump sends the two celebrity finalists to Orlando, Florida to take on their biggest task yet –create a commercial for Universal Orlando Resort and sell resort vacation packages to raise money for their charity. Back in New York, the finalists must present their commercial to guests at a star-studded red carpet event. With six fired celebrities returning to help them, the finalists compete for the ultimate prize: $250,000 for their charity and the title of The Celebrity Apprentice. Boardroom Advisors: Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr.

Assuming the 2 finalists are Geraldo and Leeza, I don't care which wins because I think both of their charities are worthy. IIRC Leeza's is alzheimers and Geraldo's is for the mentally ill or challenged.

The sheeple are still bemoaning the fact that TFW got fired. Time to give it up guys. TFW was fired because she brought nothing at all to the table. Nothing. I'm sure she was hired for the histrionics that she displays on her show. When all she did was sit there and nod, make faces, eat and complain she proved how truly boring she really is. Whomever coached her and gave her advice on how to act in the boardroom (waiving at Steve) really did steer her wrong. Drama is what it's all about and Trump already had the nice girl (Leeza) who didnt need to put on an act or mug for the camera.

Kate is a twit said...

Last week, the CA website posted pictures from tonight's show, which showed who the final 2 were. I posted the link here, but the link no longer works and those pictures have since been removed.

Seems like someone running the website jumped the gun and posted those pictures instead of pictures from last week's show and inadvertent gave out that spoiler.

Oops!!

==================

Now they're going to start complaining that Kate wasn't brought back for the final task. This one has already started:

MARIE ‏@MY_2BCOLLIES · 33m33 minutes ago
@Kateplusmy8 @realDonaldTrump So disappointed in DT bringing back Lorenzo Lamas & Kevin Jonas. They were fired BEFORE you!😥 #DoneWatchingCA

How does she know it was Donald Trump who brought them back? Maybe it was by request of the final 2 contestants.

Guess we'll find out tonight. This article has a preview clip of DT telling the 3 remaining contestants that everyone on the other team ALL were fired. They didn't seem too surprised.

In answer to Admin's question about Milo living in NC, I'm pretty sure she lives in Georgia by certain clues she's given. And on top of that, she always roots for Atlanta teams.


&&&


Well Jimminy Crickets. Milo you need to call the authorities for the first wolf sighting in Georgia in modern times. Is she mixing them up with coyotes? Two completely different things, coyote attacks on people are EXCEEDINGLY rare and if one is going after you, you need to contact animal control IMMEDIATELY. Dumbass.

Millicent said...

I hope Leeza wins, and I think she's been given the winner's edit all the way through, while Geraldo has been shown as sort of a crackpot and very full of himself. Isn't Mark Burnett one of the producers of this show? He likes his winners to be cast in a favorable light. Seems like almost every other contestant has some sort of negativity attached to them, mild though it might be. The comedian made off color remarks during a presentation. Sig lost it briefly when he was Project Manager. Lorenzo Lamas (who I think has the 2nd most favorable edit) only managed to bring in $100 on a fundraising task. Vivica argued with both Kate and Kenya (hey, I'm on her side and don't blame her for finding Kate and Kenya miserable people to deal with, but we didn't see Leeza fighting it out with them).

So I think only Leeza has the winner's edit and therefore will win.

Welcome Lauren! I agree with your comment that they may very well have the accounts mostly to be able to view and comment on OTHER photos. You can't browse instagram on your phone easily without having an account first. (You can on desktop but no kids is on desktop)

It's totally fine. They should be able to comment on a friend's photo if they want to. Instagram is such an integral part of a teen's pop culture it feels pretty extreme to deny them it. It would be like refusing to allow your kid to watch MTV in my day. Unnecessary control. Give it up, Kate.

Tucker's Mom said...

Since this is my first post here, I wanted to add something else re: the discussion about Kate interacting with locals at the yard sale. It IS funny that she was gushing so much about meeting so many great people in the area. She's lived here for years now, and no one has wanted to get to know her because of her attitude! I actually considered going to the yard sale out of sheer morbid curiosity, and I can say with confidence that that's the reason most Berks residents turned up. The yard sale was held before a new season of the show was announced, so I think many people were curious about what Kate was up to - you never see her around at community events or anything.

Lauren
******
Hi, Lauren!
I just watched the yard sale on YouTube and couldn't get over the people gushing over Kate-how dumb can they be to think she's done it all on her own?
Funny how Kate can manage to get to Manhattan for her hair, but it too busy to maintain any friendships.
She looked really awkward, actually- seeing so many people that she's ignored for years.
Geez, that woman can toot her own horn like nobody's business!
She is forever patting herself on the back, taking credit for everything.
While in Maine, she crowed about the "ad hoc" painting, like yeah, she looks out the window and sees it's raining, and suddenly, 8 easels, 8 sets of paint, 8 canvases, tables and tarps just magically show up.
She's also ridiculous with food and has the maturity of an 8-year old. The grimacing and commenting as people are trying to eat and enjoy lobster was beyond stupid.
She just wouldn't stfu about it and can let anyone have any peace, because it grosses HER out.
Don't get me started on the screaming over crabs. Ugh.

She's raising up her girls to be silly and impertinent, just like her.

Somehow, the boys are still very sweet (although more than a tad immature for their age, I mean, stuffed animals?)

I assumed that the finalists picked their teams. Kate's contributions consisted of shopping and masterminding the losing concept.
The task that won when she was PM was done so because Leeza stepped in and saved it.

angie said...

Thanks, Kate is a Twit! I clicked on the link you provided last week and not at all surprised at the final 2.
Agree with Millicent as well about Leeza. She's been the best contestant week in and week out. And what amazes me (not) is that she did it by hard work and no drama! lol....and besides that, she just seems to be a NICE person. :) (and not one 'holy crap' uttered from her mouth!)

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I do hope that Kate is part of the schoolyard pick lineup of shame and has to stand there while both finalists don't pick her. Then has to turn around and do the walk of shame back out the door.

There's nothing strategic or conspiratorial about that pick except for the finalists picking who is going to help them the best. There will be no way she can spin not being picked other than they thought she wasn't up to the job.

Tucker's Mom said...

She wasn't a very strong player- she got lucky a couple times, and got bailed out by Leeza.
Kate of course took all the credit for her win, but every single member of her team AND Kevin Jonas said that Leeza was really the PM.
So, they're ALL lying??

angie said...

Lauren, nice to see a local that verifies what other local residents have said. (I believe someone said a few weeks ago that they see Jon 'everywhere', yet Kate is never seen in town).

I wondered why so many people showed up for the yard sale. Perhaps to get their faces on tv? Don't people have to sign release statements to be shown on a tv show? Maybe someone was hoping to be 'discovered'. LOL
I watched a few minutes of the show (just a few minutes was all I could stand. there was a really cute blonde boy that got to say something, I thought 'wouldn't it bite Kate's ass if he got a teevee show out of that". LOL

How can you have a Milo-less Monday when Milo picks Monday to report that she was playing Little Red Riding Hood last night?

You're everything that a big bad wolf could want.

I would bet those were coyotes. There are tons of them in Georgia. They are aggressive and go after cats and small dogs. Used to have a few on my property. For someone who lives in the country, Milo is a dumb cluck or totally made up the story.

Formerly Duped said...

Lauren, I enjoyed your post and hoping you continue to comment.It's interesting to get all the local people's remarks since we others speculate, but the locals really know. We've heard many times how Kate's snooty attitude and self-isolation have always been part of hre MO since moving to the mansion

==================

The episode that comes on at 8pm, is called "Plus More: Cleaning House". It's the same episode that aired last week, but probably with some added scenes.

Last week, the repeat of "The Room Project" was also a "plus more episode", which is probably why the scene with Mady and the paint on the floor wasn't in it. They deleted some scenes and added others.

That's probably why it's listed as a new episode.

Well, maybe so. But once she commented on tornadoes in her area that day. I checked the weather service and the only place I found with tornadoes was in central Georgia. Since then, everything I've seen is consistent with Georgia (I lived there once upon a time). I especially think her love of the Atlanta Falcons is telling. She's the type who strikes me as being super loyal to the home team. Obnoxiously loyal, I'd bet.

But I agree that anything goes with Gladys. She could be a man in Toronto for all we know! (Sorry, Canadians!)

____________________
Yes, I seem to remember that, too. If she's in Georgia, so close to Florida, isn't it odd that she didn't make plans to at least meet up with the object of her affection when the cruise was leaving from Florida? It's just so strange that, with all of Kate's appearances, book signings and whatever, that she's never come face to face with her, and not only in her dreams.

Vanessa said...

Oh cripes. If tfw is over the top ridiculous with her rules about the twins and social media, does she actually think they'll fess up? And it starts... this will seem like peanuts compared to what lies lie ahead.

PJ, maybe milo was nervous about your miloless mondays suggestion and got a little creative with her tweets/embelishments...ahem bullshit.

Millicent, I find the Rick Grimes character VERY attractive, he's just looking a little too wild in this first episode. I hope there will be a love interest for him... for anyone really. Nothing since Laurie, Shane, the Guvenah. We need some spice along with the slice!

There are so many holes in Milo's story. She says she let the dogs out. Then when Katie didn't come back with Jack, she goes out looking for her. Katie comes running around the corner and then the 2 wolves come "barreling" down on Milo.

GKD said...

I live in Georgia & there have been no gray wolf sighting here since the 1960s. There are approximately 100 or less red wolfs in the wild here.

If she saw a gray wolf, she's hallucinating. If she saw a red wolf, she needs to call the GA Dept of Wildlife, I'm sure they would be incredibly fascinated & interested in an extremely rare sighting of a red wolf in the wild.

We do have coyotes & they can get big. They also will go after small pets. I've heard coyotes while I'm walking the little doggie late at night. so I start making a lot of noise & keep the doggie on track instead of letting him run around the yard.

I think Milo is somewhere slightly south-southwest of Atlanta. When she gives weather updates it's stuff that usually hits my house a couple of hours later & I'm NE of Atlanta. I'M more likely to see coyotes & bears in my area than she is in hers, but neither of us is seeing any wolves.

High Sodium Content said...

I thought Milo was in TN. I don't remember her ever being totally outed though, just lot of speculation. We have coyotes, and when we know they are near by we don't even let the dog out on her run. Someone will go out with her. Wonder where LOM was, maybe serving up the vanilla ice cream, which she hasn't had in a very lonnnnnnnnnnnnnng time.

Oh. My. Gosh. Poor widdle Katie Irene, boo-hoo. I so wish the Donald would call her out next week on national TV, but frankly she's not worth the air time.

It must be killing her that she is such a nothing among REAL stars and celebrities. Her world is shrinking. Heaven help the kids when it finally shrinks down to a normal, mundane existence.

Milo tweeted this earlier today:

Fired Up 4 Kate @MiloandJack · 2h 2 hours ago
We don't own any guns...we have always co-existed w/nature w/out any problems. Hope that continues. Animals were here first! Their home!

Then a non-fan found an earlier tweet from Milo where she tweeted on Sept. 23 that LOM has a shotgun. She tweeted that when she came across a snake.

I can't c/p the tweet and there's no link. The tweet is from FrkofNatr.

Why correct her? Just let her keep tweeting to the wrong person. Teehee.

Doesn't seem like the top two had any idea who would be their helpers.

I wnder if they were both relieved not to see TFW?

How can it kill her when she doesn't know that she isn't? She is under the delusion that she is very much a celebrity and nothing is going to change that.

She ACTUALLY tweeted that she felt she was unfairly fired. This woman needs to walk away from that box of wine! When "the Donald" fires you, say 'thank you Mr. Trump" respect his decision, especially if you want to work on network television again!

@Kateplusmy8 My hubs got really irate over ur firing & said..why do I watch such stupidity? He felt like U were so classy, deserved better.

Well, that does it. Hubs needs to march right into that boardroom and give The Donald holy hell. LOM's opinion is the bottom line...carries so much weight. Give it to him, hubs!

Why does he watch such stupidity? Doesn't he watch it every day with Gladys and her insane delusions?

Pathetic. She 's tweeting tonight about watching her show tomorrow night, instead of saying hey, let's support Leeza and Geraldo, here's their charities.

Ms All About Charity. not.

Ok, let me try again. Even a raging narcissistic like TFW HAS to be aware that she is not flying as high as she did 10, 6, 4, even 1 year ago. Her role in the world of entertainment is shrinking and she knows it. Look at her undying hatred of Jon and the dissing of the DT. The View isn't calling, she was only on the Today Show a couple weeks ago due to being on CA, and she is no longer TLC's darling. She will blame everyone but herself, but I still say she's aware that her opportunities in the entertainment world are extremely limited.

Tucker's Mom said...

So, Kate's playing with the sheep again, telling them to live Tweet quotes from the show tomorrow and *maybe* they'll get a follow.
She must laugh her ass off every time she gets people to do whatever she wants on a whim.
These people have no pride- she toys with them and they jump through every hoop she puts up.

Wow. Geraldo may be able to raise funds, but he sure is a doofus when it comes to actually doing anything creative. (except for inventing the selfie, of course) Vivica is better than Geraldo, she should have been in the final two.

We don't "do" snow tires here. SUVs should have good all-weather tires, but nothing helps on ice. Nothing, and it was all black ice tonight. Been there, done that tonight, and yes, Kate, it's scary and I was going at a snail's pace.

JoyinVirginia said...

Acronym list - I don't think it posted first time.
The Veranda = This lovely corner of the internet where our gracious Admin and her Blog Girls and Pool Boys host a variety of conversations on all sorts of interesting topics while serving delicious virtual beverages and snacks!
Rumspringa = the beverage of choice on the veranda. Note: there is an actual Rumspringa Brewing Company in Bird in Hand, Pennsylvania that makes craft beer. The term comes from the period when Amish youth can explore other ways of living outside their community.

Jon Gosselin = father of the 8 Gosselin children, who is still living despite what TFW says!
Couples Therapy = CT = VH1 reality show that Jon was on with then girlfriend Liz

Kate Gosselin = TFW The Former Wife (how Jon refers to her) = TCFW The Crazy Former Wife = TFMJG The Former Mrs. Jon Gosselin = Katie Irene Kreider (her maiden name) = KK Katie Kreider = WOS Waste Of Space (how TFW referred to the Grand Canyon, we believe in recycling and it fits) = Shopping Kart (how judge Bruno Tonioli referred to TFW on DWTS after her first dance) = Bitch from Hell (also how judge Bruno Tonioli referred to TFW on DWTS after her Papparazzi dance) = Shmoopie (just because) = sKate (because she is able to skate by on tasks on CA and others who are higher profile get fired) = FSS Freeloading Societal Sponge (thanks Auntie Ann!) (because she is a grifter who solicits free stuff because she has 8! count ‘em! 8 kids) = The Warden (watch her CWS episode if you want to know why) = “Sergeant Asshold McPlasticFace” ( how Michael K. of Dlisted.com referred to her, May, 2014)

The Orphanage = Shawshank = home of TFW and the 8! count ‘em! 8 kids, because she leaves them alone a lot plus how she treats the 8! count ‘em! 8 kids.

Steve Neild = The Boobyguard = Rat Claws = TFM The Flying Monkey = Purse Boy = roommate during CA filming according to Kenya = personal security for TFMJG

TLC = The Lying Channel

CWS = Celebrity Wife Swap, another reality show that TFW was on, along with her 20 pound rule book the 8! count ‘em! 8 kids must obey.

DWTS = Dancing With The Stars

Tony Dovolani = Saint Tony of the Ballroom, who was given the impossible task on DWTS of teaching TFW to dance. He is a saint because he put up with TFW tantrums and laziness and did not quit and tried his best to make TFW look good, despite her lack of work ethic, her lack of rhythm, and her delusions about what it takes to learn to dance.

CA - Celebrity Apprentice, hosted by Donald Trump = DT

Leeza Gibbons = TCL = The Classy Leeza (Thanks redbird sings!) another contestant on TFW season of CA

Rep. Murt = Pennsylvania State Representative representing the 152nd legislative district in Pennsylvania, Army veteran and educator who has successfully sponsored legislation to improve child labor laws in Pennsylvania Specifically House Bill 1458 that passed in 2012 and gave children in reality shows the same protections as child actors in movies in the state of Pennsylvania, limited work hours, required trust accounts for each child, and required set teachers if school is missed. [could this explain why the Gosselin children are so often taken out of state for filming?]

A Minor Consideration = child advocacy group headed by Paul Peterson, former child actor on the Donna Reed Show.

Lavely & Singer = Laverne & Shirley, law firm that represented TFW in the past; now representing Bill Cosby.

Martin Garbus and Shawn Tuma = two respected attorneys who represented Jon Gosselin and Robert Hoffman successfully against a bogus lawsuit brought by TFW to get them to stop criticizing her and advocating for the Gosselin children. Please see realitytvkids.com entry for September 20, 2013 and subsequent dates for full story about dropping of the lawsuit by TFW. The entries around this lawsuit are why I love this blog! Who would have thought that snarking on a reality TV show would lead to an education in constitutional law and discussion about freedom of speech and intellectual property?

I am local too. I lived in Berks County my whole life until the mid-90s. Then I moved to Montgomery County. I'm still in Berks for various reasons once a week or more. I know the area pretty well. I got dialysis where Kate used to work. She was not there at the time. I don't know anyone who has had a positive experience with Kate. I do know a woman who was out to dinner years ago and wasn't allowed to use the bathroom because Steve was blocking it. Her highness needs to pee in peace.

Jeanne said...

PA Dutch Mom is right. We don't do snow tires here. Just all weather tires. There was bad ice today. But the ice is always worse if you are careless. You have to drive slowly and concentrate. I belong to a bunch of Facebook groups for bad weather and traffic problems. The reports were that PennDOT was keeping the highways pretty well salted. The most dangerous part of her drive would likely be her last two roads to get to the house. The real issue at this point is I don't believe her. She wouldn't drag herself out on a night like this.

AuntieAnn said...

Whoa. I'm trying to catch up with this busy night on tv. Better Call Saul was awesome and now halfway through CA. Watching all those old CAs I have to say this season has been the least exciting. I don't like the rushed one-hour format. I get the feeling this might be the last time it will air. I think DT is running out of resources as far as celebs are concerned. I mean good grief he invited Kate Gosselin to participate. Nuff said.

And thank you swingsandroundabouts47 and Virginia Penn Mom from the previous thread. I absolutely love the amicable nature of all the people who grab a chair on this veranda. Thanks to Admin and her pool staffers for keeping the cushions fluffed, the floor swiffered and making it so comfortable here.

Andrea said...

Regarding wavers to be filmed

The Duggars have filmed public events like a yard sale. The people who attended did not sign waver forms. There was a sign at the gate informing the public that they would be filmed if they entered. I think the same thing happened at Kate's sale. It's easier than getting everyone to sign a waver.

Wow, TFW is really special! The problem is she does not know how to "fit in" and thinks she deserves "special treatment" in every instance. Let's just say that I am a decent respectful person, BUT if "some man" was blocking me from using a public ladies bathroom in a restaurant, I probably would have had a lot to say and would have talked to restaurant management as well.

TFW wants to be liked, " is just a mom of 8 kids," but her DIVA (I am special behavior) probably would not fly well with me, and I probably would have had something to say when she came out. But that's just me... : ) You never hear this kind of thing about REAL celebrities. I have met local celebrities and NOT A ONE ACTS LIKE THAT.

Re: Kate's bitterness about bring fired from CA. This bitch is in Narcissistic Lala-land. A delusional narcissistic bubble where she knows it all, is beautiful, intelligent and loved. Wow. Imagine the ENERGY she must expend in order to believe what she believes about herself. Earth to Kate: you're a wimpy, dumpy, obtuse, broad backed, manly buffoon that should have been fired the very first episode...of CA AND DWTS. Dumbass. It's not Donald's fault, or Leeza's, or Kenya's....or Tony's, or your parents', or Jon's or the kids'. It's always been you, Schmoops. The one common denominator for ALL your failures and woes is YOU. People dislike YOU. People laugh and snicker and roll their eyes at YOU. No one but a few sheep are jealous of you. No one wants your miserable life. Who the hell gives birth to children for freebies? Robert thinks this is the root of what drives you...the obsession and addiction to getting free crap. You stretched out your body and ruined your life and your looks and torture your kids for free shit. For true. People don't like YOU. You never deserved to be on any show, let alone CA. You're a freak. You're on tv bc no one can believe you behave the way you do. Way to go.

Just like TFW, she can't keep her stories straight. I honestly don't read twitter much, let alone ever post, BUT is Milo getting crazier by the minute? I know she was gloating about Jon's recent article and posting non-stop, over and over and over again, but does she ever view the kids' behavior (over Kate the wonderful mom) with any concern for them? The kids did not choose to film and the majority are showing signs of wear and tear.

By now, TFW and Milo should both be embarrassed with the ongoing filming of the kids, for the sake of the KIDS. You know Milo, the 8 who made her famous in the first place. Things and places do not replace family and friends.

JMO said...

BTW, rooting for Leeza! She is a classy, well spoken, articulate, intelligent woman, who has been an great example of managing people, without a huge ego that got in the way.

Geraldo has the $$ connections, but she has produced great material, even as de facto for TFW. It's a darn shame, TFW couldn't thank Leeza and her own team, but not surprised.

No, that happens even if you don't brake. If you are driving along and you hit black ice, or if the entire road has iced over, you slide, even if you aren't braking. Delay today, and Kate gets to sleep in. Maybe she will have time to get dressed and not do the pajama thing at the bus stop.

If TFW (Kate) would stop filming these kids, who a majority of us don't think is a great idea with all of the dysfunction, we wouldn't still be stating the obvious. None of us care is she films alone, but she just can't stop filming the kids, as that is her ONLY claim to fame with 8 manufactured kids. Really sad.

TFW probably regrets not doing what Melissa did, because maybe
the drama would've brought her butt back for the Florida challenge.

If TFW was sincerely concerned about being a good role model for
her 8 kids, she'd be greatly relieved -- and maybe even proud --
that she didn't take the low road and have that outburst preserved
on youtube forever like Melissa does. But her head is in showbiz
mode right now -- regretting that she didn't get to extend that
experience. And it probably stings worse as tonight is the last
TLC special (of this round, anyway), and her whirlwind of
attention is about to end. Next up - I predict birthday grifting.

Wow! That clip was bad, very bad. Never should have had mother/daughter on same show on opposite teams. But the things both Joan and Melissa said and did- so not okay. Period.

After viewing that for the first time, not sure why Joan ever won. She was as vicious as Kenya.

If Geraldo wins, am done with CA. Leeza is far classier, and not an egotistical witch, but I do think she will win, in spite of DT's history with GR.

Thanks for catching all up on the abbreviations of life known as Kate.
Great to have new posters here, and all should feel free to ask if they don't understand any abbreviation.

When I first started reading here, I was like WHAT? with abbreviations, and would ask posters or figure it out. Never mind our wonderful posters who regularly update on abbreviations for Kate Code. Hang in there, as this is a great place to blog, and often, posters skip Kate and discuss so many other things.

I agree that this season did not bring the crazy. Other than the phone incident there probably won't be that many highlights. One of my favorite years for crazy has to be Meatloaf/Gary Busey.

As far as Steve blocking a public bathroom so that TFW can pee in peace (PIP)... Let's face it, she's not FLOTUS nor is she the Queen of England. I'd push past him and if he put his hands on me to stop me, well he just put his hands on me and that's a lawsuit right there. What jury is going to buy the defense that "Kite was in there and needs her privacy."

She thinks she's classy and a role model of always positivity, and wants to behave like Melissa Rivers?????? What????

WHY would you want to behave like that???

Just like she always wants to be seen as 'hot'. What a noble thing to aspire to. How embarrassing to have your mom always flapping about her sexual urges for the world to hear.

I noticed that she didn't include any of the Trumps in this tweet nor did she include CA. It must hAve been an oversight on her part. #GoFig Not to worry though as I'm sure many people have either forwarded it to the or retweeted it and included them. I'm still chuckling over the fact that she didn't tweet it to Melissa Rivers because she hasn't yet learned that putting an @ in front of someone's name doesn't necessarily make it their twitter account. Maybe if she paid a little more attention to detail she wouldn't have been unfairly fired.

Kate is expected to be at the live CA finale next Monday, correct? The last episode of this "season" of K+8 is tonight. So, in less than a week, her much-wished-for "second chance" is done. Then what? TLC will probably do some more filing at some point, but let's face it, K+8 hasn't exactly brought in big ratings, not even with the added boost of CA. Next time there won't be an added boost at all. At some point, it won't be worth the bother for TLC to film. Kate has never mentioned any plan other than filming the kids for the rest of their lives. But that is going to come to an end, and is there a backup plan for when it does? Or is she just going to drift along, spending the kids' money while she wakes up every morning dreaming of a third chance?

This morning I listened to Dalton Ross and Jessica on Entertainment Weekly radio on XM. they had Amanda the Trump VP who sits at the desk on! Amanda has worked with Ivankas line, and mostly does marketing with the Trump properties do she mentioned working with the producers in advance on prep for the Trump Doral task.
They asked about who she liked the most. She mentioned that the contestants who took the time to say hello to her, to learn her name always are the nicest people. She mentioned specifically Leeza, how genuine she is, and also the Jonas brother, Brandi, and Johnny. She had the Ian crush also. And she is not speculating on whether Kenya s buttocks are real or not, just that Kenya likes to wear tight clothing to show it off. Geraldo did not know her name, but she "gave him a pass" Because when she called team vortex they were surprised, the phone had never rung before in the waiting suite. Lots of celebs she did NOT mention, no mention of tfmjg .

She thinks she was unfairly fired; this is a crap ass reality game show, Shmoopy, and you were kept in waay longer than you deserved. You ought to thank the nice man for the job and then STFU.

Don't you know it just KILLED her not lashing out at Trump and the other contestants. She is a profession lasher outer to her kids and the Sheeple love it because she is raising 8 kids and is under so much stress! She kept mumbling, Didn't see that coming! Do you want to know why she kept saying that?

She is and has got her way for years! Nobody held her feet to the fire. If they tried or did, they paid for it. The many wraths that TFW pounded Jon with and the kids! Remember the wrath Jon suffered because he at lunch and put it on a card. She won't admit that she needs help and certainly won't try to get it. I saw Melissa's meltdown, it was bad.

So she wishes that she would of done that instead of coming home and crying. I was just shocked that she got a tweet to come and speak at Best Buddies, when they could of gotten Vivica Fox! She played for BBInternational. I believe Vivica would of worked it into her schedule because she seemed like she loved the chance to raise money for BBI.

I sent the link to the interview that TFW did with the girls talking about Camp Barnabas. Wow, I watched it again getting the link and her mouth was so politically incorrect, to the point of pearl clutching and nausea. I also said that, Maybe you might want to rethink about asking TFW to speak. I put TFW's name on there so maybe she saw it. She has me blocked, but oh, well.

Just remembered. At one point when TFW's diarrhea mouth kept going, the girl on the left, turned to the camera with a what on earth look and stared at the camera for several seconds. Then at the end she went into the O Zone when she realized the one girl knew about Zorro and asked about HIM! She was more happy about that than CB.

Kate is a #DoIt for stating she wished she had gone out like Melissa Rivers. Melissa acted like an out-of-control, spoiled brat, running around like a pinball gone berserk. What a disgusting, embarrassing display. And THAT is what Kate aspires to??

I guess it shouldn't surprise us that Kate, the mistress of disgusting displays, wished she had acted in the same repulsive manner. I suspect she must feel a special affinity to Melissa because of the whole "broken foot" thing.

And no matter how hard-working Joan was, I hated the outrageous insults she flung at Annie Duke, and I hated that she was not fired for walking out with Melissa. Lots of people were fired for far lesser transgressions. I'm not big on conspiracy theories, but that whole thing had the foul stench of some kind of sweetheart deal between Trump and Joan.

OT -Even though it's only been two episodes, I'm really enjoying Better Call Saul. What I loved about the opening scene was the tie-in with Breaking Bad. "If I'm lucky, a month from now, best-case scenario, I'm managing a Cinnabon in Omaha." Saul Goodman to Walter White before fleeing Albuquerque with a new identity.

Trivia: The phone number for Saul Goodman on BB (505) 503-4455 is an actual number created for the show and if you call you'll get Saul on a recording. It is a toll call if you're not in Albuquerque. I called from my cell since I never use all my minutes and it's worth the call. Funny stuff.

Kate is a twit said...

So Kate still feels she was unfairly fired from CA and is vocal about it. Last week, after her infamous “forget Celebrity Apprentice” tweet, she explained that she meant that her followers should get over their “sadness” that she was fired and move on.

Kate Gosselin ‏@Kateplusmy8 Feb 2
@lmurra lol I meant 'forget about it--move beyond your sadness that I was fired' lol


Seems like Miss I Don’t Hold Grudges is the one who can’t move on, and doesn’t practice what she preaches.

I’d bet she’s even more pissed that she wasn’t invited back to help with the final task. After all, she was a winning PM!!(Thanks to Leeza). Of the 6 that came back to help, 4 were winning PM’s. Lorenzo and Kevin were never winning PM’s—in fact, they were fired(just like Kate) when they were PM’s and their teams lost.

So I’m sure she’s mad about that too, because rather than go to Orlando she had to go home and spend Easter with her kids.

I think that TFW is really after being on theses other shows, the ones without her kids.

I think that filming her own show isn't of much interest to her anymore because they're forcing her to interact with the kids. And she's not getting fancy trips anyplace.

No 'posh trips' where production assistants watch the kids while TFW is wined/dined/coiffed/make-up'd and can just step into the scene where she plays mom for a few minutes and then step back out.

Never saw that season/episode before as I did not watch CA back then. Glad I missed it, but on the other hand, does not show Joan or Melissa in a very good light, AT ALL. After what she and Melissa said and did to finalists. REALLY disgusting, at best.

And Kate wants to mimic this?!?! Sounds like TFW once again does not have a clue!!

This season has been particularly bad and disappointing. I always watched CA because I found it entertaining to see how the celebrities worked together and interacted with each other. It was also very interesting to see some celebrities who were thought well of turn out to be pretty nasty people (I'm looking at you, Dionne Warwick), and others I knew little about turn out to pretty amazing people.

This season has suffered because the 1-hour format caused us to see relatively little interaction among the players, as compared to past seasons. So we ended up seeing a disproportionate amount of Trump. That is never a good thing!

angie said...

What REAL stars and celebrities? Kenya Moore, famous for a trashy reality show? Brandy Glanville, same? CA is filled mostly with people of the same caliber of celebrity as Kate. None of those people are A listers.
-------
Depends on your definition of an A lister. :)

I've watched CA sporadically over the years, and I'd hardly call Gene Simmons, Marlie Matlin and Leeza Gibbons less than "A listers"...same for the two young ladies that were on this season, Shawn (and sorry, can't recall the other young lady's name)-- they are Olympic athletes which is quite an accomplishment! Keisha K. Pulliam was a child star on one of the most successful comedies of our time, so I'd hardly place her in the same category with the housewives females (I'd say ladies, but I think that would be wrong.lol).

To me there are several categories of CA stars...accomplished athletes, actors, singers...True some of them don't have business acumen, but their accomplishments speak for themselves.

And then there's the reality tv bunch, which ARE the d-listers--the ones that bring the trainwreck factor. I'm so glad Kate thinks that a few weeks on a business task reality show thinks she's now got what it takes to be a business woman. sheesh!

I'd like to see Jon on DWTS and CA--I bet he can dance! For CA, I bet he could say more than 'holy crap' and stuff his face. :P

I really don't have a problem with it. Heck, I appreciate when people tell me when someone I don't know very well (and is trying to lure me into using me for their own advantage) is using people for their own gain, and perhaps for being INAUTHENTIC.
Why not help people out in not being used?
I keep thinking about CC's letter about Kate not being authentic. She must have really pulled something major for CC to openly call her out on her behavior! I bet she was so pissed. lol

I did remember the bit about managing a Cinnabon store. There are so many nuances to the entire episode, but one that struck me was that Saul still has that constant worry that someone might be after him. The guy he thought was staring at him turned out to just be waiting on a friend, but I can't imagine living life constantly looking all around for the presence of danger. And shooting that opening sequence in black and white was perfect.

I watch WW today and Vivica, was on, and she was truthful in saying to be on CA, you need very deep pockets. Kate, I think went on to just be on TV, Kate has no deep pocket friends, so for her it it is TV. Just like to Kate, bad publicity and good publicity are the same thing. TV is TV.

Agree on both points. I watched Vivica on the Today Show for her firing interview (although, funny, 3 minutes later, there she is in Orlando!), and she was just as gracious.
I also get the sense that like many other contestants, that she went home because she was looking forward to it, unlike Kate, who only mentioned that her kids adjusted to having her home again.
She didn't seem to miss them at all, and maybe they edited it out, but I would have expected a big mention of missing her kids and looking forward to going home when Kate was fired.
So many "real" celebs have better things to do and places to be, and when it's obvious their firing is near,and they won't be raising any more money for their charity, it's time to blow the pop stand.

The fake nature of the show doesn't bother me. I think barring any major deviation or unexpected turn of events, there is a basic script that the show follows as it progresses along.
I've read that certain "stars" know how many weeks they'll be on, and make other commitments based on that.
Kate did OK, and should have been happy to go as far as she did, and raise money.
Why she's acting like such a loser is beyond me.
She has no reason to sulk, and should be holding her head high, instead of pissing and moaning about a fake game show being unfair.
She got a ton of exposure, and should be kissing Trump's ring for it.

I can't imagine what TFW thought she brought to the CA table.

She has no friends, let alone multiple deep pocket friends.
She has no imagination and certainly no creativity. No organization skills whatsoever. She's lazy. She eats a lot.

And then there's the reality tv bunch, which ARE the d-listers--the ones that bring the trainwreck factor


I agree that there are several categories of people brought on to the show. Former/fading stars or currently popular people. The same with DWTS. But they're all people who have accomplished *something* in their lives, other than delivering 6 children.

The piece that TFW doesn't get is that her category was the train-wreck category.

And she couldn't even deliver on that! She folded. Caved. Weinied out. She was a failure. Again.

And she honestly thinks that she's in the famous star category. She really, truly does think that she was brought there because she's such a star. Talk about not self-aware.

_______________________________

Hi Lily. I agree with you about why anyone would post any links to others highlighting Kate's ignorant words and behavior. It is not something I believe is appropriate. However, I disagree with your absolving people, college age or not, of their responsibility to investigate whether someone they invite to speak at a function is an appropriate choice. It doesn't matter if these college girls are just trying to get someone with name recognition. Lots of people have name recognition (say, for example, Bill Cosby), but it doesn't mean they would be smart choices to invite.

These "college girls" need to learn to do their homework to make sure the people they invite to speak will represent their cause in the way they want it to be represented. That homework includes checking people's past comments and behaviors. Choosing a woman with the history Kate has, including labeling her infants as "disabled" for the mere fact that they were infants, shows a complete lack of effort, mindfulness and common sense. Failure to do proper vetting just shows laziness and will ultimately reflect badly on them.

Call Me Crazy, this is the first and last time I'll watch CA. I found it extremely transparent as to how fake it all is. I can't even suspend my disbelief enough to watch it.

And let's face it, Geraldo has no skills, other than having friends with deep pockets. It's a Trump egofest.
---------------------------------------
PJ. I felt this as well. If anyone deserves to say they were "unjustly fired" it was Brandi. I think Trump set up the slaughter of that whole team, that had won five challenges in a row, to get Geraldo to the finals. First he gave Leeza to Geraldo's team, then he arbitrarily decided to fire Johnny as well as Ian, then the fired Brandi for not throwing Johnny under the bus.

I hope Trump manages his own companies differently than he "manages" CA. All this pitting people against each other, then expecting them to work on a team, is extremely poor management. I certainly wouldn't work at a company that was managed that way in real life. And the ass-kissing by the contestants (especially Kenya) is nauseating. When they file into the boardroom and chorus "good afternoon Mr Trump" I was so reminded of kindergarten classes from days of yore.

Like Tucker I don't mind the contrived nature either. I don't know why since I hate most other fake reality shows.

I don't know I really do feel that even if it's contrived, the relationships and conflicts and behaviors themselves are not fake. So to me it's a fake situation but with people being real. I find discovering which celebs behave like adults and which like doofuses to be entertaining. You just would never know some of these things in any other context, like the infamous example of Dionne Warwick.

Tucker's Mom said...

Does anyone else wonder if any of Kate's family tried to see her and the kids at the yard sale?
It's odd, of course, to draw hundreds of people from where you grew up, and not one family member is among them.
At least not shown on the episode.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

The one hour edit makes the episodes way too task heavy when to me the draw is the personalities and the conflict. They can only spend 30 seconds on a conflict before it's time to go to commercial. The two hour edits allowed for deliciously long segments where conflict could play out. If they spend too long on conflict you lose what's going on with the task. Even as it is there were a few moments where if you weren't paying attention the tasks could get a bit confusing, like when Kate had Ted Gibson come in but then they never actually showed it happening or whether it was a success.

There would never be time for the epic Melissa Rivers meltdown in a 1 hour show, you'd see maybe 30 seconds of it tops. It's just not the same unless you see all the hobbling and piece of shitting in long form.

Same formula for DWTS- a mix of current "pop" starts/Disney, past-their-prime actors, athletes and reality tv stars.
When I watched Lorenzo and Ian, I could see seasoned actors who not only know acting, but direction and cinematography etc.
I would say they've had bonafide careers, unlike the VAST majority of reality tv fly by nights.
Sure, they make a lot of money and become tabloid fodder, but they're easily replaceable, because they never had any talent to begin with.

I hope Trump manages his own companies differently than he "manages" CA. All this pitting people against each other, then expecting them to work on a team, is extremely poor management. I certainly wouldn't work at a company that was managed that way in real life. And the ass-kissing by the contestants (especially Kenya) is nauseating. When they file into the boardroom and chorus "good afternoon Mr Trump" I was so reminded of kindergarten classes from days of yore.

Yes. It was even worse on the non-celeb version of Apprentice and the British version.

I like Sir Alan Sugar because he basically cuts that off at the knees. He jumps all over you if you start to ass kiss. He doesn't believe anything you say if you start agreeing with him too much because he thinks it's just brown nosing. He fires most of the ass kissers right away.

Trump seems to love it, however. Trump acts more like he would like to pop some good popcorn and watch. Sometimes when a good shitshow is happening he'll just suddenly quiet up and watch like it's T.V., lol. I remember when Kenya made that nasty remark about Brandi in the boardroom and it's all he could talk about no matter what else happened in the boardroom that time. He eats it up.

Sugar seems more serious about actually finding someone good to work for him and can't be bothered with the drama.

The 1-hour for each task did no favors to telling a compelling story for each challenge.
Why did they change it?
Is this season much shorter?
_________________________________

CA used to be 2 hours per episode. This season, they crammed 2 episodes into those 2 hours per week. There was a lot of talk previously about whether they were going to pull the plug on the show entirely, so instead of doing that, they just shortened it drastically. It took away a lot of the interactions that made the show entertaining.
