I’ve always enjoyed this show before but after last night, it’s dead in the water for me.
Everybody on the team told Trump that Russell Hatch was the one who should be fired but at the last minute Trump turned it around to make David Cassidy seem like the bad guy, even though there was nothing whatsoever to support that and he was fired.
I’ve always believed the show was somewhat "manipulated" but after last night, not only is it manipulated, it is scripted from the first episode to the last. I cannot believe they could be so blatant and obvious about it. To bad, it WAS a good show. Oh, well, that frees up my DVR to tape Cake Boss which I really like.
BTW, does everybody know that Lisa Rinna is on it this year?March 7, 2011 at 1:33 pm #21510luckeyParticipant
personalities that are on this year. The last time I watched a couple of seasons ago, I wasn’t too happy with some of the outcomes either and wondered how much it’s manipulated. I’m glad you posted because I missed last night and was going to search online to watch it there, but I won’t bother now.March 7, 2011 at 2:13 pm #21511
from the perspective of Trump. David Cassidy came off very poorly in the boardroom. Trump asked DC to defend himself and he was fumbling, not sure what to say and appeared weak. And as the Donald pointed out, every time he spoke w/David he turned to Jose instead of confronting Trump head on and speaking his own mind. DC should know that Trump admires those who fight voraciously to stay and David most certainly did not. Plus DC brought in little money.
Did Hatch deserve to stay? Probably up against any other member of the team he wouldn’t have lasted. And unless Backbone starts winning he could be gone soon.
I have no idea if this was manipulated by the Apprentice producers, but David Cassidy didn’t strike me as a strong enough candidate.March 7, 2011 at 2:42 pm #21512
on (I think) MSNBC but I tried searching my DVR for it and it wasn’t listed this year. I hope they do because there’s just too many shows to try and record on Sunday nights.March 7, 2011 at 8:44 pm #21525
watched in years), but what you said about there being a lot of shows on Sunday night to tape – I have to agree. Lot’s of shows to watch and DVR. I was looking forward to the celebrity "Chopped" last night (I wanted Brad to win because he was donating to American Cancer Society), but the guy who won – won. But when he said, (before they announced him as the winner), that (he) "wanted to win so bad that he’d kill a littler of puppies" unquote – that is no joke and that comment is not funny. I think FN should have "edited" that line out, but I guess the elitists can say anything they wish even on a food channel. I won’t be watching that one again either.March 7, 2011 at 9:58 pm #21527
It seems to me that was said just because he wanted to win so badly he was even willing to do something as dastardly as that. I don’t think that was in very good taste but I wouldn’t take much offense to it.
It’s funny, now days, we are always hearing "free speech, free speech" and yet people are bashed for saying something even slightly offensive to someone else. I think we have taken this PC-ness WAAAAAY too far. If someone says something offensive or something I don’t like, I just consider the source and make my judgement of what kind of person they are based on that.
I always used to love George Gobel (sorry you youngsters who don’t know who he is) until I saw him in Las Vegas at a craps table using a real potty mouth. After that, I didn’t want to watch him any more. Same think happened with Jerry Lewis, he was playing craps at 10:00 am, drunk as a skunk, tossing down hundred dollar bills, losing like crazy and drawing as much attention to himself as he could…also using bad language. I have no respect for him after that whatsoever. To me, that’s just not the way a celebrity acts in public.
I will have to add I’ve also seen Buddy Hackett and Don Rickles in public but I expect that kind of behavior from them. They’re like that on stage so I wouldn’t expect anything different off. And, while I’m name-dropping, I met Mohammad Ali in a hotel lobby and he was the most soft-spoken, truly pleasurable person you could imagine.March 7, 2011 at 11:49 pm #21535
is a life long passion of mine and a line like the guy said really touched home and I took it to heart. Just two months ago, the PTB in Washington after the congresswoman was shot said in essence that we should all take a "kinder, gentler" way of speaking.
I would think this guy of all people who professes his lifestyle in triplicate (thought, word and deed) would ascribe to a more conducive speech pattern than anyone else as he doesn’t want anyone to downplay or joke about his way of life.
I’m not PC at all, in fact, I think folks need to be truthful and speak their minds but not when it comes down to cruelty to any helpless creature (up to and including as the guy who uttered that), especially when you think your kids or grand kids could watch a cooking show and not hear that kind of stuff. One thing when it’s drivel like Charlie Sheens show or something like that, but a cooking show?March 10, 2011 at 12:21 pm #21592
Big bad Russell is gone! The big cry baby. What an ass he was.March 10, 2011 at 6:28 pm #21611
much better than mine could ever be Bonbon. Now if they’d only get rid of Mr. UndieLetItAllHangOutThereFedMarch 10, 2011 at 7:55 pm #21614
Hey, I kind of like him. He may be a little cookoo but at least he’s not obnoxious like Russell was. Russell was by far the worst, most disliked contestant on the show ever, and I’ve watched them all. He’s even far worse than Richard Hatch (who is now on CA) and I thought he should have been the first to go instead of David Cassidy. I’ve convinced now it’s fixed.March 14, 2011 at 12:43 pm #21697PattiParticipant
but I must say, she just did not do well as PM. However, Starr Jones and Dionne Warwick were really petty about insisting their names should be on the cover as writer and creator, respectively. Geesh, well smell you two. Disgusting behavior for those two. Lisa was too indecisive when it came to shutting those two up. To me, a PM is only successful when they can control the job as well as those who perform it. She should have immediately sat down with everyone and said, okay, here’s the plan….. ‘you will do this, this and this, and you will do that, that and that, and not go around and around with big mouths like Starr Jones (who was the same way when she was on The View …. that’s why she couldn’t make it there either). Dionne Warwick, I must admit, shocked me the way she acted, but she was a little more respectful of Lisa’s ideas than Starr Jones, who won’t let anybody do their job without insisting what they’re doing is wrong and only SHE knows how to do it right. I wish Lisa would have stuck with the plan by Marlee. They could have made it funny as well as educational, but she caved to Dionne and from there it was all down-hill for her. She committed project manager suicide right from the start. JMO.March 14, 2011 at 1:35 pm #21698
from the getgo by not wanting to be PM. When she admitted that to Donald, that was her first mistake. You cannot show any sign of weakness/waffling in the boardroom or you’re out. Dionne has been long known in the biz for being difficult.
As united as Dionne and Star were last night, I’m sure they will turn on one another before too long.March 28, 2011 at 9:54 pm #22225
I have all the respect for her as a musical artist. But her behaviior last night, including handing her firing on a plate to Trump was less than honorable. So much for wanting to help a charity.March 29, 2011 at 12:25 pm #22238
to find out what a horrible person she is. It seemed to me she really didn’t want to be there. I’m sure they know what they’re getting into when they sign up to be on the show so just because she’s "old" isn’t an excuse to leave everybody to go to bed. I didn’t much like her attitude from the beginning either.
I also DETEST Star Jones but she is very capable and does know how to play the game. I’m afraid she’ll go far unless someone throws her under the bus. I think LaToya will be the next one to go.
And on the men’s team, how in the heck has Gary Bussey stayed this long. Oh, I guess because they keep winning. I think that man had some serious brain damage when he had his accident. He also has a long record of addiction too.March 29, 2011 at 12:59 pm #22242
older than Warwick when she won the thing.
